Update (8/23): Niantic’s site post indicated that the new Pokemon GO update was available yesterday, but it looks like it took a bit longer than expected to fully roll out. It should be fully available on both iOS and Android now.

Original (8/22): A new Pokemon GO update can now be downloaded on all devices. The new version is 0.35.0 for Android and 1.5.0 for iOS.

The big addition this time around is the Pokemon Appraisal. Here’s the lowdown on that:

“Trainers will now be able to learn about a Pokémon’s attack and defense capabilities from their Team Leader (Candela, Blanche or Spark) to determine which of their Pokémon have the most potential for battle.”

Niantic also says there are “Minor bot fixes” with today’s update.

It’s also worth mentioning that the company says it’s “still working hard on several new and exciting features to come in the future”.
