PokeStops Are Suddenly Dropping a Lot Fewer Items

Start Slideshow

Items have suddenly gotten a lot harder to get in Pokemon Go.

Earlier this afternoon, Pokemon Go players noticed that PokeStops were consistently dropping less items per spin. Previously, players could expect to get anywhere from three to five items, with even larger hauls coming from hitting a streak of ten PokeStops in a short period of time.

Now, players are getting only two items per PokeStop, with the tenth PokeStop bonus dropping four items for players. The change seems to affect items from gyms as well, although players can still get bonus items for either controlling a gym or having that gym’s medal.

Pokemon Go hasn’t provided an explanation for the sudden drop in items, although the issue seems pretty widespread. And needless to say, players aren’t very happy about seeing items drop by 50 percent or more seemingly out of the blue.
