If you play Pokemon Go, the chances are that you got used to the regular updates from time to time. Dozens of millions of players are active on Pokemon Go every day, and developers have to continually make sure that the game is still fun to play and fully functional, so they introduce new content now and then.
The newest Pokemon update will bump up the game’s version to 0.173.0, and here are the highlights that you should keep in mind:
Installing The Update
The good news is that Pokemon Go updates are mostly available via OTA (over the air) channels, which means that, if you want to install a new update, you only have to keep your smartphone connected to a reliable Wi-Fi network, and the update will automatically install.
It looks like developers were busy developing new content for the next update of Pokemon Go.
Update no. 0.173.0 features a plethora of goodies that will improve the overall gameplay experience.
A bonus daily Field Research Task was introduced, without requiring players to spin a PokeStop.
The ability to prolong the duration of Star Pieces, Lucky Eggs, and Incense by using more items simultaneously was added.
Players can now access nearby Raid Battles with Remote Raid Passes.
Also, the ability to power up Pokemon to the desired CP by taking advantage of all the needed Stardust and Candies at once was added.
Developers haven’t quit investing their resources into Pokemon Go, which is surprising considering that the game is quite a few years old now. However, players love it thanks to its simplicity, fun, and the way it is played.
The game indeed suffered some mishaps over time, but constant care and devotion from the developers quickly solved them when it was needed.
