For everyone still getting out there and catching all the Pokémon you can, Pokémon GO has a new feature coming soon that’ll make raising them even easier and more convenient. Adventure Sync will be added soon, and while its effect is subtle it’s sure to build up your progress well. Rather than needing to open the app to record your walking distance, Adventure Sync will record your steps even when GO isn’t open and then apply it when you’re back in game.
This’ll already be helpful when it comes to hatching eggs and gathering Candy, but it’s offering dedicated distance based rewards as well. Clearing these milestones will reward you, and your weekly distance will show on your Trainer Profile. If you’re already using Apple Health or Google Fit depending on your device of choice, Adventure Sync will work alongside those as well to give you even more motivation to get out and GO.
