Pokemon Go has rocked the game world since the day one it became a mammoth success virtually from day one.
Niantic’s blockbuster mobile game creates a mirror of the real world using augmented reality, assisted with smartphones’ cameras and GPS chips.
This allows players to find, catch and train Pokémon (or Pokémen) in their own neighbourhoods
- Latest Pokémon Go update considers wearables
October 6: A preview of the next Pokémon Go update appeared on the official Niantic website. A new feature is in the works that give you a ‘catch bonus’ for when you pick up certain types of Pokémon such as Kindler, Psychic, Gardner and more.
When you catch Pokémon you’ll increase your tier for that type of Pokémon through a new medal system. The medals better your chances of “capturing Pokémon with a related type”. So if you get a Kindler Medal your chances of catching fire-type Pokémon increases.
There is no word on when this update will go live but we’ll let you know as soon as it does.
September 23: The newest Pokémon Go update is set to include some changes that will keep you on the hunt. This was announced via Facebook by Niantic and the update is version 0.39.0. The update brings some minor bug fixes but also a couple of cool new features.
The first feature announced is ‘Capture location’ where the location of where you caught your Pokémon is going to be displayed on the information screen. Also included in the update is wearable compatibility. Niantic will allow trainers to catch their Pokémon with the Pokémon GO Plus and Incense accessories.
- Pokémon Go update includes ‘buddy’ feature, or not
September 11: This Pokémon Go update included a sweet feature: Buddy Pokémon. This allows you to choose a Pokémon to be, you guessed it, your buddy. This meant that players can earn candy for these buddies by walking certain distances.
Other updates included a tweak that makes it easier to select smaller Pokémon on displays, the fix to an issue where eggs would sporadically hatch without an animation, along with better reliability when you switch networks (avoiding ‘hang’).
Also worthy of mention is support for Pokémon Go Plus, the nifty new way to play this game without even using your phone. And let’s not leave out the last little update – and always my personal favourite whenever Niantic publishes its release notes – some new minor text fixes.
- Pokémon Go update reinstates battery saver mode
August 8, 2016: After only a little more than a week, a new Pokémon Go update already arrived. Users of the Android app can upgrade to version 0.33.0, while iPhone owners can get iOS version 1.3.0. So what’s new this time around? Well, it’s not quite the feature dump that the last version was, but there are some good tweaks to know about here.
The main addition you should know about is, unfortunately, an iOS-only update. Battery saver mode, which was reportedly buggy for many players, has made a return in this new update. The more significant update to the Android app is the for you to change nicknames once. Yes, once only. This mightn’t be a big deal to you if your preferred name was available from day one, but for those of us with embarrassing names, this is the time to switch.
Other improvements in this update include XP bonus corrections, plus a player safety warning for those who might be travelling in a vehicle. Stay tuned for the next update – we’ve got you covered.
