Hello, Pokémon GO players! Short and sweet – the Pokémon GO team confirmed an update is coming for Android (0.91.1) and iOS (1.61.1). Expect the following changes:
- Improved the in-game News feature.
- The Pokémon Collection search function now lets Trainers search using “Shiny.”
- Various bug fixes and performance updates.
However with our new updates coming out, so do the datamines. More news on this as it comes in but after having a quick look, it looks like we could be seeing some form of quest system which will start incorporating all of Pokémon GO‘s features. Exciting stuff!
Update: A lot of code has been added for a quest system. This is not live and would require at least one more update to be in play. There are Story and Challenge quests, and multiple types of achievements – catching Pokémon, spinning PokéStops, hatching Eggs, walking a Buddy Pokémon, feeding a Pokémon, winning a Gym or Raid battle, and levelling up a badge. Quests could also involve multiple parts.
Possible quests rewards include the following:
The Pokémon encounter could hopefully be related to Legendaries or Mythical Pokémon! We will have to wait and see.
