Rewards logging in daily with streaks.
There are loot boxes available in the store.
Scheduled events with rewards that you'll miss if you don't play then. Different Pokémon show up at different times of day.
Optional battle league but it's pretty ok and gives you small rewards just for participating
Events and Community days do not last long. I have a friend that used a vacation day from work, in order to play in a community day event.
This game is 99% a grind.
I believe that that you need about $300 in order to max out one of the two inventories. I have a friend, who is addicted to the game (he speaks and thinks only about it), that he maxed out both inventories in one month with real money.
You trade pokemon.
All the items are cheap in this game, but all are for single use, and some times you waste them by mistake, so you have to buy them again.
You have to wait for long, unnecessary and unskipable animations for everything. You have to wait 2 minutes in order to play raids, even if you don't wait for anyone to join. Even the menus are designed to waste your time.
