Niantic (in collaboration with Nintendo) released Pokémon GO – an augmented reality mobile game – back in 2016. It became an instant hit because it was one of a kind AR game where you can catch exotic Pokemon in real life; through your mobile phone. Plus, you get the full experience with Pokéstops, gyms to train your Pokemons. You can also join other trainers across the globe who are discovering Pokémon as they explore the world around them.
Just recently, the developers pushed an update to Pokémon GO with version 0.229.0. It features a widget to the iOS homepage for Adventure Sync to track egg km progress without opening Pokémon GO. Music now resumes more quickly when returning to the Map after a Pokémon encounter.
There is a huge list of release notes you can find below. Visual update to Pokéstops to differentiate between stops that can be Powered up and those that cannot. Made item and Pokémon inventory count headers easier to read. Visual change made to Pokéstops and gym spin disc to indicate if Trainer is 40m, 80m, or out of range of a stop.
Most importantly, the update brings:
- Pokémon GO Tour: Johto is coming soon! Purchase a ticket today to join the festivities on February 26, 2022!
- Join us for February Community Day—featuring Hoppip—on February 12, 2022!
In addition to this, you get updates from previous versions such as improvements to the Egg Hatching. Hatch animation can now be sped up. Egg hatches will appear simultaneously on the “Oh?” screen. Check out the 0.227.0 release notes here.
