Pokemon go patch! ( 0.33.0 / 1.3.0)
Have you noticed the difference since yesterday?!
Yes Pokemon Go has released a new patch!
They’ve released the updated version 0.33.0 for Android, and also 1.3.0 for iOS devices.
Here are some of the changes that you may experience!
New Dialog Warning!
If you are on the go, in a transport that is moving above a certain speed. You would probably receive a dialog pop-up saying that you you should not be playing while travelling above a certain speed and must confirm that you are not driving in order to continue playing Pokemon Go. There are also reports saying that they actually got banned when they received quite a few of this warnings within a short period of time. Well, perhaps this could be a deterrence for spoofers.
Professional pitcher incoming!!
We can now throw curve balls with ease, as Niantic patch has made improvement to the accuracy of curve-ball throw!. I have tested it out myself and my curve-ball are on target then before the patch! Curve-balls XP here we come!
Yes the nearby interface has been changed, or rather according to Niantic, They are currently testing the “Nearby Pokemon” feature with subset of users!
Yes i can actually see what Pokemon are near me! This new feature allows the trainer to actually see what Pokemon is near their radius of approximately 200 metres or so, but details of distance was not given out in the patch notes. So if you see a Dragonite on your nearby Pokemon feature, you better start running around!
