Pokemon Go Event and Update- Tech Updates
Despite the fact, that we are already after the Christmas Eve, the Christmas in Pokemon barely started. As we can read on the site of the Niantic company it seems that ” Starting the morning of December 25, 2016, and through the afternoon of January 3, 2017 (PST), PokéStops will award one single-use Incubator each day after your first Photo Disc spin. As you visit PokéStops during this time period, there will be a greater chance of finding Eggs that hatch Togepi, Pichu, and several other recently found Pokémon, originally discovered in the Johto region.”
However it is not all. The update provides us also with the increase chance of finding evolutions of Kanto starters, during the time period between 30 December and 8 January. In other words, you can expect that in your region you will be able to encounter such Pokemon like: Ivysaur, Venusaur, Charmelon, Charizard, Wartortle and Blastoise. It is especially important, because in general it is rather hard to find these Pokemons in normal circumstances. Yes you can evolve them from candies. However, in many places it is even hard to encounter basic starters like Charizard, Bulbasaur or Squirtle. Thus for me it is really great info. I am playing in this game since July and I was not yet able to catch Charizard, Blastoise or Venusaur. Both Venusaur and Blastoise I saw once. Charizard was never encountered by me. I am a collector and I want a full set of Pokemon in my Pokedex, so I am eager to leave my house, despite the weather. Anyway if you think, that this is all that the game has to offer, then you are wrong. There are so many other things in Christmas Event which you should notice.
As you can see in the image above, there are new items which appeared in the shop. A special box for 250 coins, great box for 550 coins, ultra box for 1500 coins I really recommend to you, to look in these books, because there are quite interesting items, which you can find in them. For example in these books you are going to find ultra or great balls, incenses and egg incubators. Furthermore since December 30 a new boxes are going to appear. Bronze box for 440 coins, silver box for 990 coins and gold box for 2400 coins. In these boxes you are going to find even better items like lures, incenses or egg incubators. As you can see, these boxes are quite interesting and it would be a good idea to buy them. Anyway, the Christmas event is not all I have to announce, connected with Pokemon Go. Because today a new update for the game appeared.
Because you see, at the same time as the event itself, a Christmas update appeared. It is the version 0.51 for android and 1.21.0 for the iOS. As you can see, game already got quite a few of updates. What is the update? Well it is not to big one. However still it is quite important. What are the changes. Well they look like this:
- The bug that caused incorrect vibration notifications has been fixed.
- Day and night modes have changed to more accurately reflect the Trainer’s current time of day.
- Minor text fixes.
For many of you it might not be impressive but hear me out. First of all, they took care of an really annoying bug in which we constantly got vibrations, despite the fact that Pokemon was nowhere to be seen. It is good, that in such short amount of time, they were able to fix their own mistakes. In my opinion it is a plus. The second thing is the change of day and night mode, based on the place in which you currently are. You see it was annoying that the time of evening in Pokemon Go was set on 19:00, while in winter in my country, evening comes at 16:00. Text fixes always appear, because our friends from the Japan, are quite not accustomed yet with English language, which sometimes is quite obvious, when you read some texts in the game. Good, that they are working on it though.
