Pokemon Go To Add 80 New Critters, Some New Features

The update will also include new item carousels that allow players to select berries and Poke Balls directly from the encounter screen, as well as two brand new types of berries-Nanab berries and Pinap berries.

Although this will surely get some players back in the game, it will still lack many features that franchise die-hards like myself just can't ignore; how can you have a Pokemon game without shinies, proper battling, or even trading between other players?

If the update arrives in the morning, U.S. time then that means late afternoon/early evening for everyone in the United Kingdom and in the middle of the night for Asia. Impressive as it seem, the number 80 does not cover all the 100 Gen 2 Pokemon. Trainers need these items if they want to obtain Pokemon such as Steelix and Kingdra. The free-to-play game was an instant hit, shortly surpassing the likes of Twitter in terms of daily active users. Hone your skills and catch those elusive Pokemon! Be on the look out for this new update later this week. Let us know your thoughts in the comments! The first of the new items, a Nanab Berry, can be used to slow the movement of a Pokemon, therefore making it easier to catch. Till then, keep checking back for more updates.
