Pokemon GO

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.

The new Pokemon GO content announced by Niantic earlier this week is now live. This includes 50 new Pokemon and the dynamic weather system.

In other news, we have updated patch notes for version 1.55.1 / 0.85.2. Niantic has increased the maximum Pokemon Storage to 1,500 and more.

Below are the patch notes:

Pokemon GO’s latest update has arrived. On iOS, the mobile game is now at version 1.55.1. The Android version has been bumped up to version 0.85.2.

The official patch notes only make mention of bug fixes. In reality though, it’s likely paving the way for the new Pokemon and dynamic weather system announced a couple of days ago.

Niantic has shared the latest news about Pokemon GO. Confirmation has come in that new Pokemon are on the way – 50 in total – and a dynamic weather system is being implemented.

Niantic says that Treecko, Torchic, Mudkip, and other Pokemon from Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire will begin appearing later this week. More will be appearing “over the next several weeks”.

Pokemon GO’s roster of Pokemon is likely expanding very soon. An ad for a new round of Gen 3 Pokemon has been spotted, signaling that Niantic will have more to add in the near future.

The ad, pictured above, comes from the Apple Watch App Store. While the text is the same as the Halloween event, the Pokemon are not. Treecko, Torchic, and Mudkip from Pokemon Ruby and Pokemon Sapphire should be on the way soon, along with other potential Pokemon.


In the past, Pokemon GO’s in-game map has been powered by Google. But in recent days, the game has been updated, and has switched to OpenStreetMap. Some players have noticed that the map in Pokemon GO looks different as a result.

The change hasn’t applied in every single region just yet. It appears to have been rolled out in the United States as well as a number of South American and Asian countries.

Pokemon GO recently wrapped up its Global Catch Challenge. It was quite successful, as players collectively caught over 3 billion Pokemon.

To celebrate, Niantic has prepared a new reward for fans. Ho-Oh is now showing up in Raid Battles at Gyms around the world. The Pokemon will be present until December 12.


This week, Niantic challenged Pokemon GO players with a new Global Catch Challenge. By reaching certain milestones, various rewards would be unlocked.

The biggest rewards awaited at 3 billion Pokemon caught. Niantic just announced that this goal was hit, meaning all three tiers have been reached. Among other things, Farfetch’d will be offered around the world.

Here’s the news from Niantic:


Niantic is rolling out another update for Pokemon GO. Very soon, players on iOS will be able to download version 1.53.2. It’s version 0.83.1 for Android users.

The new Pokemon GO update addresses the following:

– Added support and made optimizations for the iPhone X screen resolution.
– Removed support for devices running iOS 8.
– Resolved a bug causing error banners to remain visible until the app is restarted.
– Resolved a bug that prevented Trainers from powering up Pokémon to their max CP.
– Improved load times when you open the app.
– Various bug fixes and performance updates.


One common complaint Pokemon GO players have expressed concerns Raid Battles. In response, Niantic is making sweeping changes across the board. Both EX Raid Battles and standard Raid Battles are being improved.

Niantic went in-depth today explaining how Raid Battles are changing. Read the full overview below, along with specific comments from the development team.
