Pokemon GO for both iOS and Android has been updated to version 1.29.1 and 0.59.1, respectively. Here's everything that is new.
Drop By a PokeStop to Initiate a First Streak and Be Gifted with a Random Evolution Item
In order to entice players back into the game, Niantic introduced streaks whenever someone catches their first Pokemon of the day or stops by at a PokeStop for the first time in 24 hours. It's a wonderful little addition to the game, and something that went down well with players around the globe. However, the company behind Pokemon GO feels that they should take things up a notch, and they did. How exactly? Be rewarding players with a random evolution item whenever they drop by a PokeStop and manage to hit a streak.
Pokémon GO is in the process of being updated to version 0.59.1 for Android and 1.29.1 for iOS devices. Below are some release notes and comments from our development team.
-The 7-day ‘First PokéStop of the Day’ streak will now award a random Evolution item.
-Minor text fixes.
Of course, apart from the above mentioned feature, there are minor text fixes along with bugs that have been patched. Users can expect a slight improvement in performance as well since that is something that comes part with almost every software update.
Pokemon GO is free to download and play with in-app purchases around corners if you went to climb on top of the food chain faster than others. If you still haven't played the game already, then simply head over to the links below and get started.
Despite having matured in the market and going towards an obvious slow downfall, Niantic is still in the process of adding new and cool features to the game. In fact, it came to light a few days back that legendary Pokemon are coming to the game later this year. That'll definitely prove to be a great little addition to the game. Furthermore, it was also revealed that real-time player battles are on their way too.
