The latest Pokemon Go update has finally arrived. While many trainers are still waiting for the new tracking feature to make it’s debut, Niantic has quietly been making improvements to the game. The latest Pokemon Go update isn’t a groundbreaking one, but the changes in the game improve the experience overall.
The newest and latest Pokemon Go update upgrades the game version to 0.41.2 for Android and 1.11.2 for iOS devices. Niantic has also activated the CAPTCHA system for trainers that have been flagged or suspected of cheating. The latest development has effectively shut down all third party trackers as well.

Latest Pokemon Go update changes
New Gym Training System – As we previewed in our previous post, the Pokemon Go gym training system has been completely overhauled. You can now bring six Pokemon into battle when training up your gym. Needless to say it’s easier than ever to train gyms.
Not only can you bring six Pokemon to train your gym, the CP of the defending gym Pokemon will also be adjusted. There’s going to be a lot of prestige 10 gyms in the very near future.
Catch Bonuses – There’s now additional bonuses and changes to the medal system. These bonuses will make it easier for trainers to catch Pokemon in the wild. The latest Pokemon Go update will help players with Pokemon that happen to have a high flee rate. It’s great news for players in rural areas as well, who don’t happen to have enough choice among the Pokemon in the wild they discover.
New Egg / Incubator screens – Part of the latest Pokemon Go update will also bring changes to the graphics on the egg and incubator screens. These changes are centered around stopping players from placing eggs into gyms. The gym egg defender glitch has long been exploited, and the latest Pokemon Go update fixes that.
Decreased Evolution Time – Along with the graphical changes to Pokemon Go, Niantic has also lowered the amount of time it takes to evolve Pokemon. We haven’t tried the evolution shut down trick since, however the reduction in time saves roughly 3-5 seconds.
Additional minor fixes to Pokemon Go – Some of the other changes included in the latest Pokemon Go update improve the overall look and feel of the game. Changes to the game audio and fixes to text are among the changes.
Although the upgrades in the latest Pokemon Go update are definitely welcome, we are still waiting on Pokemon trading as well as the tracking system that’s been in beta since seemingly forever. What new Pokemon Go update are you waiting on? Let us know in the comment box below!
