Unbelievable! Update 1.3.0 arrives to Pokémon GO and many changes have been implemented. Now you will notice a dialog that will remind you to not play when traveling above a certain speed. Here is a funny one, you should confirm that you are not driving so that you can play. Well, these notifications have been integrated to avoid legal issues. Also, the accuracy of the curveball throw has been improved.
The bug that prevented you from having a ”Nice,” ”Great,” and ”Excellent” Pokeball throw has been addressed. This will result in more XP to be gained. In addition, achievements that showed incorrect Medal icons have been fixed. There is an amazing feature added now and that’s the ability to change your nickname! Be careful though, you can only change it once.
Furthermore, the battery saver mode has been resolved and brought back. You will now notice that the Team Leaders have their visuals. While Niantic did not add Nearby Pokémon feature, they did add a variation of the feature called Sightings. Basically, when you open Sightings screen you see it empty, and it gets filled with Pokémon as you come closer to specific Pokémon. You still cannot track Pokémon because there are no footprints to indicate distance changes. Stay tuned with our website for the latest news on Pokémon GO.
