Niantic has announced that the Pokemon storage limit in Pokémon Go will be increasing once again ahead of the new Pokémon Go Fest, allowing players to store even more Pokémon. In November of 2019, Niantic announced that Pokémon Go players could expand their Pokemon storage limit to allow for storing more monsters on their account. That was originally raised all the way to 3,000 Pokémon, with more and more promised to be added soon.
The sheer volume of the roster in the game makes this a very necessary move. With all of the in-game events and legendary special Pokémon to catch, players are bound to collect thousands pretty easily once they really start playing hardcore. So now Niantic has announced that they’re increasing capacity again. The Pokémon storage limit in Pokémon Go will now be raised to 3,500.
This means that players who are running low on space have a bit more room to work with. Although it’s hard to imagine many players needing this many storage slots, it seems like Niantic has noticed that many players have already collected thousands of the little monsters. And with the massive Pokemon Go Fest heading in, there’s bound to be a need for more space anyway.
You will have to buy the new limit though, as it won’t be enabled by default. This is likely so Niantic can save on server costs when it comes to more storage servers for their game. And it’s definitely a plus that they will bring in another revenue stream from the microtransactions as well.
To upgrade your Pokemon Go storage limit, players can still pay 200 coins at the Pokemon Go Shop to upgrade the storage limit by 50. This means you’re going to need a lot of coins to jump all the way to the new Pokémon storage limit in Pokémon Go.
You can earn Coins by just playing the game, mostly by holding Gyms, but that will take a lot of time, as you can only earn 50 Coins a day holding down Gyms.
