Recently, Pokémon Go developer Niantic reverted the interaction range for PokéStops and Gyms back to its pre-pandemic range of 40 meters. Needless to say, the player base wasn’t thrilled with this move. Thankfully, the company decided to listen to players and revert the range to 80 meters.
For some players (myself included), the desire to play Pokémon Go was completely gone with the change. We all became so used to the longer range and benefits it offered that the game started to feel unplayable with the shorter 40-meter range.
Thankfully, Niantic made a statement in a tweet addressing the situation where it said it was reverting the change, bringing the range back to 80 meters.
