A new update for Pokémon Go has been released, adding a handful of new features and fixes (full list below), included support for Pokémon Go Plus, retailing at £34.99.
‘Plus’ is a wearable accessory that allows players to interact with the game, without needing to access their mobile phone. The device was previously delayed, but now set to launch on 16th September.
The full list of updates is as follows:
Version 0.37.0 for Android and 1.7.0 for iOS
- Implemented Buddy Pokémon: Trainers will now be able to choose one of their Pokémon to be their buddy. A Trainer can earn Candy for their Buddy Pokémon by walking a certain distance.
- Made it easier to select smaller Pokémon on the screen.
- Fixed an issue where Eggs would sometimes hatch without displaying the animation.
- Improved performance reliability when a device switches networks to no longer cause the application to hang or stop updating.
- Pokémon GO Plus support
- Minor text fixes.
We’re still yet to see Trading or Monsters beyond the first Pokémon Generation, so hopefully there’ll be more ‘Go’ news soon.
