Bonus Counters have a set goal that has to be reached by all users together. After a Counter is filled, a Bonus Day with the applied Bonuses happens after Midnight at Server Time. One Bonus Counter is also picked at random after Fabulous Friday.

The bonus counters as seen on PFQ.
The bonus counters as seen with Special Bonuses active.

The Bonus Counters are a set of counters that are placed to the right of the NavBar. Each of them has a different target depending on what aspect of the site they represent, eg. There is one for the number of Interactions made and one for the amount of Gold Poké spent. Once their target has been reached, the bonus will be in effect for the following day until reset. During the Bonus Day the affected Counter will not be filled and the progress made is reset after the Bonus Day ends. The Bonus Value is random. Each counter represents a member of the site Staff, from left to right in the following order:

Each of the 8 Bonus Counters feature quotes which change depending on how much progress has been made on the Counter.

Pokémon of the Day + V-Wave

Beneath the row of Bonus Counters, two items are displayed: Pokémon of the Day and the V-Wave. These Counters are special, as they don't have a goal but are active every day.

An example of a PotD.

The Pokémon of the Day is a feature that randomly selects a Pokémon that hatches from an Egg, once a day. This includes Legendary Pokémon. The Pokémon selected has a 10% increased chance of hatching as a Shiny Pokémon for that day. This 10% boost stacks with other boosts gained, such as from Sei's Counter or using a Shiny Charm.

The V-Wave is a feature that affects a random Pokémon Type each day. Any Pokémon or Egg matching the chosen type will gain an additional 50% (or x1.5) EXP for the day. This boost can be stacked with Niet's Counter and the Hypermode Bonus.

Trivia

  • Sceada's Counter was the first counter to be changed, being replaced by Acree.
  • On 23rd January 2017, Acree, Marie, and Ledah were replaced by Dusky Peculiar, Shazi, and Persephone.
  • Uzumi, Dusky Peculiar, Shazi, and Persephone's Bonus Counter images are still under the names of the original counters; Bacent, Sceada, Marie, and Ledah respectively.
  • On Pi Day 2015 (March 14th), all Bonus Counters were activated.
  • The Bonus Counter images when a special bonus is active seem to feature the Staff members under the influence of Zophan.
  • On 12th July 2018, Niet's Bonus Counter glitched, filling out at exactly reset according to a theory by Niet, making Sally think that the bonus is to trigger the next day.[1]
