Pokemon Go’s newest update shows Niantic prepping for Gen 2 monsters
Pokemon Go has received its first update for the year, which at first glance appears quite ordinary, but hides some important changes under the hood. Right now, however, players have little to be excited about, as the update’s only new feature is limited to Apple Watch users. The changelog for the game’s newest release, v0.53.1, reads as follows:
- Updated Apple Watch to display Eggs obtained from PokeStops
- Changed distance tracking to better account for GPS drift
- Minor text fixes
These changes show a major future update, which will finally introduce the rest of the Gen 2 monsters, is surely in the works. While Pokemon Go’s hype has mostly died down in the past months, there is still a sizable community out there passionate about the game, and it’s a good thing Niantic hasn’t entirely forgotten about them. The newest update, v0.53.1, is live now for both Android and iOS devices.
