Whenever I visit a Pokestop, it is one of two colors: Light Blue and Light Pink. The two colors signify it is ready to use and during it's cool down period.

Today, I saw a Pokestop was dark blueish/purple. What is the meaning behind it?

    Did it stay at this colour? It looks a lot like a Pokestop that's changing from purple back to blue.

Right after you use a pokestop, it will turn purple. Then it will fade from purple back to blue meaning you can use it again. The dark blue means that it isn't freshly used, but can't be used again yet.

    Also I think there is a time limit of 5 minutes before you can swipe the same stop again. Aug 8, 2016 at 15:46
