New Pokemon GO update is rolling out and there’s more to it than the new sneak peeks that we saw earlier. First was catching bonus which makes it easier to catch Pokemon of the same type. Also updated gym battles now give you the ability to bring 6 Pokemon to your own gym battles in order to train them up. There’s also an Egg and Incubator Screen update. These will periodically update the distance walked without the Trainer needing to close and reopen the screen.
Pokemon GO Update – Evolution time decreased
Pokémon GO is in the process of being updated to version 0.41.2 for Android and 1.11.2 for iOS devices. Below are some release notes and comments from our development team.
Catch Bonus: Trainers can earn a catch bonus for a Pokémon type as they catch more of a specific type.
Updated Gym Training: Trainers can now bring six Pokémon to battle at friendly Gyms. The CP of the Pokémon you are battling may be temporarily adjusted lower for your training session.
Egg & Incubator Screens: These will periodically update the distance walked without the Trainer needing to close and reopen the screen.
Fixed several audio issues.
Decreased the evolution animation time.
This is huge. For not sure how fast you can evolve your Pokemon right now but it should take less than before. Before it took 20 to 30 seconds. So, could it now take 10 seconds? We don’t know but a quick testing of the process could confirm the actual time. Stay tuned to MobiPicker for more news on Pokemon GO update.
