Pokemon GO Picks Up A Handful Of Great Updates To Make The Game Even Better

Pokemon GO for both iOS and Android has been subject to a worthy update this morning. The new build brings with it great changes and improvements that are bound to take the Pokemon experience even further.

– Fixed a bug that prevented ”Nice,” ”Great,” and “Excellent” Poké Ball throws from awarding the appropriate experience bonuses
– Fixed achievements showing incorrect Medal icons
– Enabled the ability for Trainers to change their nickname one time, so please choose your new nickname wisely
– Resolved issues with the battery saver mode and re-enabled this feature
– Added visuals of Team leaders – Candela, Blanche and Spark
– We’re currently testing a variation of the “Nearby Pokémon” feature with a subset of users. During this period you may see some variation in the nearby Pokémon UI.
