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.

Bonus Counters

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 features quotes which change depending on how much progress has been made on the Counter.

Niet's Counter

Niet's Active Counter.

Niet's Counter is the first Bonus Counter, which shows the number of Interactions made throughout the site. The target is 75,000,000 Interactions, which when reached multiplies the amount of EXP earned when feeding Pokémon/warming up Eggs by a random multiplier. The lowest possible multiplier is x1.5 and the highest possible multiplier is x3 EXP.

Suríya's Counter

Suríya's Active Counter.

Suríya's Counter is the third Counter, which shows the amount of Experience gained from Scouring. Earned EXP is not seen by the user during Scouring, it can only be viewed on the Bonus Counter. The target is 325,000 Scours and upon reaching it, the odds of finding rarer items from Scouring missions are improved. For clarity, when Suríya's Bonus is active, the percentage shown is the odds that the reward a user finds gets bumped up a tier. So, "nothing" gets bumped up to "berry", and so on. The lowest possible bonus is +40% and the highest possible bonus is +90%.

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, also known as PotD, is a feature that randomly selects a Pokémon that hatches from an Egg, once a day. Exclusive Pokémon are the only Pokémon that are not able to be chosen for PotD. 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.

Note: This bonus also affects any variants of the selected Pokémon. For example, if Voltorb is the Pokémon of the Day, Death Star Voltorb will also get the Pokémon of the Day bonus. The same goes for the Alolan, Galarian, and Hisuian formes as well.


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.
