Niantic is now rolling out a new update to Pokemon Go for both iOS and Android users. The full patch notes were posted on the official website.
Pokémon GO is in the process of being updated to version 0.45.0 for Android and 1.15.0 for iOS devices. Below are some release notes and comments from our development team.
- You’ll earn bonuses for the first Pokémon catch and PokéStop visit each day. You’ll receive a larger bonus when you do this seven days in a row.
- When you defeat the Gym Leader at a rival Gym, there will be a brief period of time where only you will be able to place a Pokémon in the open Gym.
- The amount of Prestige a rival Gym loses when you defeat a regular Gym member has increased. The amount of Prestige gained by training at a friendly Gym has been lowered.
- Minor text fixes
Again, these are new features that have been added to Pokemon Go to further improve the gameplay experience. It might take a while for the most requested features to come. Many people still want a decent tracker and things like PvP. It’s safe to say those things might not come until next year.
