Pokémon GO Updated On iOS And Android And Adds Catch Bonus and More

Niantic has confirmed on its official blog that the immensely popular mobile title Pokémon GO has received a fairly substantial update. The latest update for iOS and Android brings catch bonuses as trainers catch more of a specific type of Pokémon as well as updated gym training. Here’s the patch notes for the latest version of the mobile game.

  • Catch Bonus: Trainers can earn a catch bonus for a Pokémon type as they catch more of a specific type.
  • Updated Gym Training: Trainers can now bring six Pokémon to battle at friendly Gyms. The CP of the Pokémon you are battling may be temporarily adjusted lower for your training session.
  • Egg & Incubator Screens: These will periodically update the distance walked without the Trainer needing to close and reopen the screen.
  • Fixed several audio issues.
  • Decreased the evolution animation time.
  • Minor fixes

  1. “Decreased the evolution animation time.”

    Thank Arceus above! Now if only we could skip the animation altogether…..

      1. I only spent $40.

        If you’re good at conquering Gyms and patient, then you never need to spend another penny again.

  3. I like how they have time to develop all sorts of new features but can’t fix one of the primary ones that makes the game worth playing. I’ve noticed a lot less people playing since they got rid of it. No longer do I pass numerous cars parked on the side of the road or nearly hit players walking across roads with their face in their phone. None of my friends play it anymore, most deleted it. None of these features make the game more playable. This tactic only encourages people to buy incense, lures and such. Perhaps if they didn’t cripple the game they may not have lost money refunding the people that knew they were duped. If you DO want to play this game I suggest Jailbreaking/Rooting your phone and getting the tweak so you can actually find Pokemon without aimlessly wandering. Niantic still isn’t clever enough to detect it or disable its features. Just don’t be a dick and steal gyms like a loser.

    My theory should get you impressed
    Considering a fair portion of your comments on this site involve what humans call banter, I conclude that a cycle is not a time measure as it would be convertible
