The all new updates available for the groundbreaking smartphone game, Pokemon Go, which has taken the world by storm are available on Android and iOS devices now. Unlike the previous updates, the new patch included a good number of features — each making the hugely successful mobile game a little bit more interesting.
According to Otakukart, Pokemon GO has been updated to its latest version, which is 0.43.3. The latter, though, refers to the game’s version in the Android platform. As for iOS users, the title received the so-called version 1.13.3. This update is unlikely to be on your app store quite yet, as Niantic usually announces updates a bit before they actually roll out to most players. But based on recent history, Version 1.13.3 & 0.43.3 should be available on your device sometime within the next day or two.
Here are the full patch notes released by Niantic
Pokémon GO is in the process of being updated to version 0.43.3 for Android and 1.13.3 for iOS devices. Below are some release notes and comments from our development team.
Professor Willow discovered that Eggs have different patterns depending on the distance required to hatch them.
Pokémon type icons have been added to the information screen for each Pokémon.
Low battery indicator added for the Pokémon GO Plus.
Minor text fixes
On Niantic’s website, the company explains that in this new version, “Professor Willow discovered that Eggs have different patterns depending on the distance required to hatch them.” That’s all the company says, and since the update isn’t technically out yet, nobody is quite certain of what that means. But the app will probably now visually distinguish different types of eggs from one another in some way.
In Pokemon Go, there are three types of eggs 2km, 5km and 10km. That distance indicates how far you have to walk in order to hatch the egg and get your Pokemon. But right now, there isn’t any visual difference between the different types. Niantic has probably decided to give all three of them some sort of unique pattern, perhaps with stripes on one type, polka dots on another and so on to maintain a concrete amount of distinction.
The latest update of Pokemon Go sees Pokemon GO monsters now have icons. These can be seen on the information screen, which players can easily access on their respective devices.The Pokemon GO update also covered the wearable tech called Pokemon GO Plus which packs in an additional battery indicator.
