Niantic has announced via Twitter that their in game pricing for currency will increase in some regions by October 5th. You can read Niantic’s full statement from their website as well as regions affected down below.
We know that changes to pricing and currency are impactful to our community across all Niantic games—Pokémon GO, Ingress and Pikmin Bloom—and we wanted to provide proactive notice that some players will experience an increase in in-game currency prices starting as early as Oct. 5.
This update is due to changes in App Store price tiers. We will also make similar changes on other mobile platforms. The following countries and regions will be affected:
Territories that use the Euro currency
While we will not be taking any immediate action in response to this change, we’ll be monitoring its impact and discussing how to navigate changing conditions globally.
Thank you for your understanding.
There is no information on how much the prices will increase though it’s possible that too will vary by region. It’s unfortunate news for players who live in these regions, hopefully the situation can improve in the future.
