The launch of Pokémon Go a few months ago was a resounding success. Almost immediately, it was at number one in the top downloads on both Android and iOS devices, beating the record for Candy Crush itself. Much of this enormous success has been due to the nostalgia factor of many users but also to a game that, based on its “retro” touch, has managed to adapt to new mobile technologies.
Having reached its climax of success, Pokémon Go began to lose steam, something common after the euphoria of the first days and weeks, however Niantic, the company that is behind the development of this game, has not stopped releasing updates that have been getting better with new features and functions. And now we have a new update with news.
What’s new in Pokémon Go
Pokémon Go for Android has just received a new update that brings it to version 0.43.3. This is a minor update that is mainly focused on solving some errors that have been detected during the lifetime of the previous version (such as those blank spaces that were left in the texts) but as always, it also includes some other novelty that continues improving the user experience.
From the Pokémon Go website itself, the company informs us about the what’s new in this new version:
- Professor Willow discovered that Eggs have different patterns based on the distance needed to hatch them.
- Pokémon type icons have been added to the information screen for each Pokémon.
- A low battery indicator has been added for Pokémon GO Plus.
- Small text corrections
The new version of Pokémon Go for Android is already being deployed globally. You probably already have it available but if not, calm down! It will be a matter of hours.
