Pokémon Go is an augmented reality game that has been released by Niantic for Android and iOS devices. After its launch on July 6, it didn’t take long for it to become one of the most downloaded games from the Apple and Google Play Store.
As expected, in short time, Pokémon Go has started receiving new updates that fixed some of the bugs that the developers have found. Unfortunately, it seems that the last update received by the game has removed two features that were available at the launch of this game.
It seems that Niantic has decided to drop the Footprint Tracking system, but it is good to know that this system didn’t work at the debut iteration of the game. At the same time, the developers have removed the “Battery-Saving Mode”. It seems that this mentioned feature was often made the game unresponsive. So, in order to make sure that your mobile device doesn’t die while you are hunting Pokémon, you will need to turn the screen brightness down and also get a portable battery pack with you.
The Pokémon Go has also received a new feature that will allow you to customize your trainer. In addition, the buttons have been relocated and each time you will open the game, it will remind you to not trespass, as there were cases where two Pokémon Go players got themselves shot while doing that.
In addition, if you choose a favorite Pokémon, it will be protected and you will no longer send it to the glue factory professor. This is very useful, as some players have reported that they’ve accidentally sent their strongest Pokémon to the glue factory professor.
On the other hand, the release date of the Pokémon Go Plus is being delayed until September 2016. So, if you want to use this wearable device while playing Pokémon Go, you will need to wait at least one month until it you will be finally able to purchase it for $34.99.
