New Pokémon GO Update Released

Following the release of Pokémon GO v0.39.0 and v1.9.0 late last month, Niantic has announced the latest update coming to its location-based augmented reality video game, Pokémon GO v0.41.2 for Google-based mobile devices and Pokémon GO v1.11.2 for Apple-based mobile devices.

The new Pokémon GO update includes:

  • Catch Bonus - Trainers can earn a catch bonus for a Pokémon type as they catch more of a specific type
  • Updated Gym Training - Trainers can now bring six Pokémon to battle at friendly Gyms. The CP of the Pokémon you are battling may be temporarily adjusted lower for your training session
  • Egg & Incubator Screens - These will periodically update the distance walked without the Trainer needing to close and reopen the screen
  • Fixed several audio issues
  • Decreased the evolution animation time
  • Minor fixes
Pokémon GO v0.41.2 for Android devices and Pokémon GO v1.11.2 for iOS devices are now rolling out as a free update through the PlayStore and AppStore.
