Pokemon GO Adventure Sync lets you walk off all that Halloween candy

Pokemon GO New Pokémon Go feature makes exercise enticing
Kayla Schwartz | 28 October, 2018, 23:52

Niantic notes that Adventure Sync is rolling out for Pokemon Go players worldwide soon, but this feature will trickle down to other Niantic location-based AR games like Ingress and the upcoming Harry Potter game as well.

It may sound like a small an inconsequential new feature (unless you count your Eggs), but strategies like these are what made fitness trackers successful and mildly addictive.

The move of adding the Adventure Sync feature has come after an global survey of almost 2,000 Trainers, according to which, 70 percent of the participants reported Pokemon Go had motivated them to walk more, while 64 percent said that after they played this game, they felt the need to go out. You do not have to open the app or log in every time. Users will also be able to check in via their Trainer Profile to see the number of miles recorded for the week.

The new gameplay feature will sync in the background with iOS HealthKit and Android Google Fit and give players access to a weekly summary that highlights how much they walked.

NYC Ferry service to Rockaway was also suspended in the early morning hours as the nor'easter swept through the area. Mountainous areas of northern NY state, Vermont, New Hampshire and ME could see snow and a mix of snow and rain.

So, there you go, Pokémon GO is not such a useless game after all.

This should make hatching eggs easier at least, as players will no longer miss out on precious kilometers when they've forgotten to open the game before going on their walk. Players will also be able to earn rewards for meeting weekly walking milestones. This will allow you to hatch eggs and collect buddy candy without draining your battery or using up all your data.

During its peak, Pokemon GO has been credited for getting people off their butts and on their feet and walking around, sometimes even walking into things, unfortunately.
