Niantic has announced that between December 15th, 2021 through February 2nd, 2022, about 500,000 new Gyms and PokéStops will be available in India within Pokémon GO.
More Gyms and PokéStops coming to India!
Trainers in India,
We are constantly working to improve our experience for many communities. This has been done via Wayfarer Challenges as well as through Niantic adding Wayspots in communities that need them. Today, we are happy to announce the addition of new Wayspots to help our current and future Trainers in India. We have also been accelerating Niantic reviews of nominations in India to reduce the backlog while we add new Wayspots.
Starting in December, expect to see about 500,000 new Gyms and PokéStops in India, within Pokémon GO. They will be added between December 15, 2021 through February 2, 2022. These PokéStops will not have any images, however Trainers who are Level 38 and above are eligible to suggest new photos at PokéStops and Gyms. Read our our Support page
for more details on how to add new photos. We are excited to see what amazing photos you submit.
Also, Trainers who have achieved Level 38 and above, can also nominate places to be included on the Pokémon GO map. Learn more
about how your contributions can be included and how you can review other Trainers’ nominations.
Please be aware of your surroundings and follow guidelines from local health authorities when playing Pokémon GO. Upcoming events are subject to change.
