Niantic also specified how they will work, activities reset at 12AM local time, so if you catch a Pokemon at 11:59PM on Tuesday, the daily bonus for Wednesday will be available a minute later at 12AM on Wednesday. Keep this in mind while putting together weekly streaks, because a single missed day will force you to start over.
Niantic has not announced a release date for daily bonuses yet.
