Pokemon GO

Update: Pokemon GO version 1.1.0 is live on iOS.

A new update for Pokemon GO is starting to make the rounds. We’re hearing that version 0.31.0 is already out for Android players, meaning it shouldn’t be very long before iOS users can download the patch as well.

With the update, Niantic has finally addressed the very troublesome three-step glitch by removing the steps entirely. It also offers new customization options for avatars, adjusted battle damage, and more.

Head past the break for the full patch notes.

Pokemon GO has been updated, but only on the server side. Although there’s no new patch to download, Niantic has implemented some changes on its own end.

Serebii reports that some PokeStops and gyms have been removed. Niantic has also altered various Pokemon spawns, meaning if you found an Onix common in one area, you’d now find Doduo. Damage inflicted by moves has also been modified. Apparently, a bunch of moves have been boosted and some have been nerfed a bit.


Pokemon GO is generating $10 million across iOS and Google Play each day, App Annie reports.

That’s just one tidbit from the market researcher’s latest report. It also goes into detail about other topics, such as how Pokemon GO is impacting other mobile apps. Based on App Annie’s data, Pokemon GO “has not had a sustained and meaningful impact on the daily revenue of other games on iOS and Google Play”, and there have not been “any meaningful declines in daily revenue for top-grossing games”.

App Annie views Pokemon GO as a positive element of expanding the mobile market. Not only has it “introduced and popularized the concept of AR”, but businesses are now starting to learn about the value of AR as in-game Lure Modules to boost foot traffic as well as consumer spend.

Yesterday, Forbes published an interview with Niantic CEO John Hanke. It covered Hanke’s early days with gaming, working at Keyhold, and eventually starting Niantic.

The middle part of the interview is where the discussion becomes interesting for Pokemon GO plans. Hanke talked about the game’s success thus far, cheating (some of “those things may not work in the future”), server issues, and other topics.

We’ve rounded up some of Hanke’s comments below. You can read Forbes’ full interview here.

Region-exclusive Pokemon in Pokemon GO is something that we’ve touched on before. It’s been thought that Taurus only appears to be found in the wild in North America, and Mr. Mime is only in Europe. Let’s also not forget about Farfetch’d in Asia and Kangaskhan in Australia. But here’s the thing: it looks these Pokemon can be obtained through other means.

BBC News spoke with someone who caught 142 Pokemon available in the wild in the UK, along with Taurus. Eurogamer also was in contact with California’s John Smith (Oninous Gaming on YouTube) who claims he was the first to catch all 145. With Smith, he said he needed to walk about 200km to collect everything, and hatch all the region-exclusive Pokemon from 10km eggs.


Getting to Pokemon GO’s level cap of 40 is no easy feat. A whole lot of experience is needed to advance after level 30, and between levels 39 and 40, you’ll need five million points.

One Pokemon GO player decided to see what would happen after you reach that far-away mark. Reddit’s “name _problemz” used a bot to hit level 40, but found that nothing extra special happens. The game does give out several items though, including 40 Ultra Balls, Max Potions, Max Revives, Razz Berries, plus four Incense, Lucky Eggs, Incubators and Lure Modules.

The Master Ball does exist in Pokemon GO’s code. You just can’t obtain one by making it to level 40.

Pokemon GO Plus has been pushed back to September, Nintendo has announced. The news applies to all regions – North America, Europe, Australia, and Japan.

The last we heard, Pokemon GO Plus was planned for release at the end of this month. Nintendo did not say why the device has been pushed back.

The folks over at Smosh have once again produced an “honest trailer” for a game. This time, the video focuses on Pokemon GO. Check it out below.

Towards the end of last week, SimilarWeb published a new post investigating Pokemon GO installs on Android by country. Australia leads the way at 20 percent, followed by several European countries such as Germany, Portugal, and more. The United States is at 13.9 percent.

One territory worth spotlighting in particular is Japan. Just a few days after launch, Pokemon GO was already installed on 24 percent of Android devices. It’s ahead of Snapchat, WhatsApp, and KakaoTalk. Assuming Pokemon GO’s success continues, it may pass Facebook Messenger (33.5 percent) and Instagram (34 percent).


You can read SimilarWeb’s full post here for a look at how Pokemon GO is affecting other mobile apps.

Pokemon GO has now topped 75 million downloads worldwide, according to a Sensor Tower report.

Over the weekend, it surpassed 50 million installs on Google Play alone. Pokemon GO is the fastest game to reach that mark (19 days) plus “the fastest to that milestone ever for combined worldwide iOS and Android downloads.”

This chart shows how Pokemon GO won out the race to 50 million downloads on mobile:


Sensor Tower also mentions that Pokemon GO is at the number one spot for downloads in revenue in all available App Store territories. That includes France and Hong Kong – two regions that just recently received the app.
