Cheating in Pokemon GO is something Niantic has been trying to address since the game launched last year. Within the past few days, the studio appears to have put a new security measure in place to address the situation. Players who are classified as cheaters will find that rare Pokemon are now hidden.

Here’s a look at a warning message some users have been receiving:

Pokemon GO was a big winner at the 21st Annual Webby Awards. Most significantly, it was selected as best mobile game.

Niantic’s global product marketing lead Archit Bhargava stopped by to accept the award, and delivered a short but sweet speech. He simply stated: “This summer will be legendary.”

Bhargava’s brief comment comes off as a tease for future Pokemon GO plans. Players are still waiting on Legendary Pokemon to appear in the game after all. With Pokemon GO coming up on its first year anniversary, offering these creatures would be a nice way to celebrate the event. Niantic CEO John Hanke also indicated a few months ago that Legendary Pokemon are a part of Niantic’s plan for the game in 2017, which could be happening during the summer.

The Android version of Pokemon GO has added a new feature. Although it doesn’t have much functionality yet, it will be possible to redeem promo codes in the future.

Players will be able to redeem codes by going through the following steps:

  1. In the Map View, touch the Main Menu button.
  2. Touch Shop button.
  3. At the bottom of the screen, enter the promo code in the text field.
  4. Touch Redeem.

Once a code is redeemed, a notification will display the items added to your inventory.

To reiterate, this feature is only included in the Android version of Pokemon GO. That being said, it will likely be added on iOS in the future.
