Niantic is still continuing its plans to update Pokemon GO. 50 new Pokemon are due out soon, and a dynamic weather system is being implemented.

Some much-requested features are still missing in action, however. Since the beginning of Pokemon GO, fans have wanted to trade, but that isn’t currently possible. Player versus player battles also aren’t supported.

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.
