Pokémon GO and Pikmin Bloom developer Niantic has issued a notice about “in-game currency prices” increasing in select regions around the globe, starting on October 5th.
In a post on its official website, Niantic mentioned how it wanted to be “proactive” with the pricing notice and explained how it was “due to changes in App Store price tiers”. Similar changes will also apparently be made on other mobile platforms.
We know changes to pricing and currency are impactful to our community, and we want to provide proactive notice that some players will experience increased in-game currency prices starting as early as Oct. 5 due to changes in App Store price tiers. https://t.co/AWRzIhRd7P— Niantic Support (@NianticHelp) October 3, 2022
Here’s the full list of countries and regions affected:
– Territories that use the Euro currency – Chile – Egypt – Japan – Malaysia – Pakistan – Poland – South Korea – Sweden
Niantic won’t be taking “immediate action” in response to these changes, but will instead monitor the impact and then navigate these “changing conditions” globally.
If we hear any updates, we’ll let you know.
