The release of Pokemon Go started off with a bang. While its popularity doesn’t seem to have gone down much, there have been more complaints as of lately. This is most likely due to a recent update, which took away the 3 step tracking feature and changed other aspects of the mobile title. A new update has been released, however, and it looks like we could be seeing a pickup to make players happy again.
The most notable asset of this new update is the new tracking feature, which shows you nearby Pokemon and a picture of the PokeStop they are closest to. For some reason, not everyone was given this in the update. It must be something Niantic is testing out with only a number of players on iOS and Android.
While many fans still love and play Pokemon Go, it still has a long way to go before it can be truly perfect. Check out the full patch notes below and see if it is on the way:
- Added a dialog to remind Trainers that they should not play while traveling above a certain speed. Trainers must confirm they are not driving in order to continue playing.
- Made improvements to the accuracy of a curveball throw
- Fixed a bug that prevented ”Nice,” ”Great,” and “Excellent” Poké Ball throws from awarding the appropriate XP bonuses.
- Fixed achievements showing incorrect Medal icons.
- Enabled the ability for Trainers to change their nickname one time. Please choose your new nickname wisely.
- Resolved issues with the battery saver mode on iOS and re-enabled the feature.
- Added visuals of Team Leaders Candela, Blanche, and Spark.
- We’re currently testing a variation of the “Nearby Pokémon” feature with a subset of users. During this period you may see some variation in the nearby Pokémon UI.
- Minor text fixes
