Pokémon Go introduces New Incense to Encourage Players to Take a Stroll

In Pokémon Go‘s latest update, Niantic has implemented a new item called Daily Adventure Incense! The item is replenished daily and incentivizes players to get out and about by offering them 15 minutes of Pokémon spawns—provided they keep walking.

Participating in this daily task allows players to encounter some of the rarer Pokémon that the title has to offer, including the highly sought-after Galarian forms of Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres. Over at r/TheSilphRoad, the home of Pokémon GO on Reddit, fans have put together a list of the rare Pokémon you may encounter when you activate your Daily Adventure Incense. Keep in mind that finding these Pokémon is still an uncommon occurrence, and you should still expect to find your fair share of common spawns.

  • Evolutions – Luxray, Gengar, Alakazam, Houndoom, Hariyama, Venusaur, Flygon, Machamp, Ampharos, Combusken, Charizard, Blastoise, Gyarados, Mamoswine, Cascoon, Zweilous, Omastar, Metagross, Swampert, Primape, Clefable, Talonflame, Abomasnow, Rhyperior, Toxicroak, Silcoon, Gabite, Gardevoir, Shiftry, Bewear, Rapidash, Forretress, Aggron, Slaking, Altaria, Wigglytuff, Jumpluff, Lampent, Dewgong, Alolan Sandslash, Dragonite, Pidgeot

Ultimately, this seems like a great way for Niantic to safely encourage players to get back outside with Pokémon Go as the pandemic eases. As someone who lives in a rural area, it also seems like a great opportunity for me to find Pokémon I usually wouldn’t be able to, so I’m looking forward to giving the new feature a try.
