Pokemon Go Adventure Sync is an addition to the Pokemon Go app which allows you to earn rewards for walking milestones – even when the Pokemon Go app is turned off!
Adventure Sync is a great optional feature in Pokemon Go that allows players to earn rewards for walking around with their mobile device. Although none of the rewards are unique items – it’s an amazing way to passively pick up resources.
Of course, in order to claim these walking rewards, you’ll need to turn Adventure Sync on. So, without further ado, let’s check out how to enable to feature and what rewards are available for each milestone.

Firstly, tap the Main Menu button.
Then tap the settings button.

Adventure Sync is not working
Unfortunately, some players have been experiencing issues with Adventure Sync and claiming their rewards. There are a number of possible reasons for this so let’s rundown why it might not be working for you.
For starters, make sure you have either Apple Health or Google Fit installed on your device or you will not be able to use the feature. On top of this, ensure Pokemon Go is listed as a connected application for these apps. You can do this by heading to the settings of either fitness app, going to manage connected applications, and ensure Pokemon Go is listed.
