Pokemon Go Update 0.55.0 and 1.25.0 are rolling out now for Android and iPhone. Usually these updates take a while to hit both stores for all phones, so keep checking to see if it is available for you and it should show up in the next day or two. As far as the patch notes go, this Pokemon Go Update seems to be addressing a few issues that have plagued players since the last couple of patches hit.
The big news is that Android users will start seeing better opening load times, and the problems with the Pokemon Go Plus accessory should be resolved as well. A recent update caused Pokemon Go Plus users to have trouble getting the device connected to their phones. Hopefully this patch resolves all those problems, cause the Plus is very useful for those who want to play more casually.
Here’s the full patch notes for Pokemon Go Update 0.55.0 and 1.25.0: “Reduced the starting load time on Android devices. Resolved Android connectivity issues for the Pokémon GO Plus accessory. Integrated iOS wheelchair support for use with Apple Watch. Minor text fixes.”
As always, we get some minor text fixes. What could they be this time? And of course, any update to the game can make background changes, such as the addition of Gen 2 Pokemon data in some previous patches. We’ll have to wait for the dataminers to dig in to see what Niantic might have tossed in behind the scenes for this one.
Players are anxiously awaiting any major change to Pokemon Go, with Gen 2, shiny Pokemon, and genders being brought up often as possible additions to the game. Much of this has been added already, but it’s not active, so the game is just waiting for Niantic to be ready. What are you most excited for in Pokemon Go? Let us know in the comments.
