Niantic has updated Pokemon GO for iOS and Android, bringing the version numbers to 1.3.0 and 0.33.0, respectively. The new update adds some new stuff, and improves a lot of what people have been complaining about for a while now.




Here's the full changelog:


  • Added a dialog to remind Trainers that they should not play while traveling above a certain speed. Trainers must confirm they are not driving in order to continue playing
  • Made improvements to the accuracy of a curveball throw
  • Fixed a bug that prevented "Nice," "Great," and "Excellent" Poké Ball throws from awarding the appropriate experience bonuses
  • Fixed achievements showing incorrect Medal icons
  • Enabled the ability for Trainers to change their nickname one time, so please choose your new nickname wisely
  • Resolved issues with the battery saver mode and re-enabled this feature
  • Added visuals of Team leaders - Candela, Blanche and Spark
  • We're currently testing a variation of the "Nearby Pokémon" feature with a subset of users. During this period you may see some variation in the nearby Pokémon UI.
  • Minor text fixes
