Niantic has detailed the updated Stardust rewards for the Pokémon Go Battle League, which was put into effect due to the community speaking out about a change made at the start of season eight. 

At the end of GBL Season Seven, Niantic reduced the Stardust rewards for GBL by roughly 50 percent per set of battles, which the community was quick to point out. 

Niantic responded to the complaints on June 7, announcing that the adjustment would be reversed so that Stardust rewards would match those from season seven. The developers also noted that additional compensation would be given to players to make up for the inconvenience, too. 

Now, Niantic had said the reduction was “an oversight” and not an intentional change made for season eight. The team is still going to compensate for the missed Stardust in the first week of the season by increasing the end of Season Eight Stardust rewards to double that of Season Seven for all players. 

“We want to thank the Go Battle League community for noticing this error and quickly bringing it to our attention,” Niantic said after updating the seasonal GBL blog

GBL Season Eight will run until Aug. 30, with rewards being distributed at its conclusion.
