A coming update to Pokémon Go will give players even more incentive to regularly hang out with their Pokémon buddies.

In a blog post published Tuesday, developer Niantic revealed that it’s soon debuting a Daily Bonus feature for the game. Trainers can pick up bonuses for daily activities like catching Pokémon, visiting PokéStops, and even just for logging into the app. They’ll get an even bigger bonuses for consistently performing these activities seven days in a row.  

Niantic detailed what kind of bonuses trainers can expect for these activities, listed below.

Catching a Pokémon every day:

  • 500 XP

  • 600 Stardust

Catching a Pokémon every day for seven days:

  • 2,000 XP

  • 2,400 Stardust

Visiting a PokéStop every day:

  • 500 XP

  • Additional items

Visiting a PokéStop every day for seven days:

  • 2,000 XP

  • (Lots of) additional items

Remember the daily check in counts anytime during the 24-hour day. So if you check in at 8pm for your Tuesday check in, you can then check in for Wednesday anytime after 12am local time.
