Today, Pokemon Go developer Niantic announced it is adding a new type of incense item to the game that will help players (or trainers to use Niantic’s term) find and catch Pokemon that do not typically appear in the wild.
The Daily Adventure Incense is a special type of incense you will be able to use once a day. It lasts 15 minutes and will generate Pokemon not normally see in your location. It will be especially helpful for players in rural areas where Pokemon populations are not as dense. It’s not currently clear if the Pokemon it attracts will be rarer than using the standard Incense.
There are some qualifiers for the Daily Adventure Incense. Special Research will appear that you must complete in order to start using it. The Special Research will function as a tutorial and will also reward XP. You won’t be able to use the standard Incense while the Daily Adventure Incense is active, nor can you use the Daily Adventure Incense if you’re already using the other Incense.
