Although it might have been faded from the spotlight a bit, Pokemon GO is still alive and kicking. Its latest update comes with quite a few changes, the most important ones being the general availability of more Pokemon originally discovered in the Sinnoh region, three upgraded Lure Modules, and much more.

Without further ado, these are the highlights of the latest Pokemon GO update:

  • More Pokemon from Sinnoh available to catch in the wild and hatch from Eggs, including Hippopotas, Gible, Cherubi, and others.
  • A new Ground-type Charged Attack, namely Earth Power. 
  • Three new Lure Modules: Glacial, Mossy, and Magnetic.
  • When Trainers are within range of a PokéStop with one of the lures above active, if that lure is of the appropriate type and they can spin its Photo Disc, Evolution of Magneton and Nosepass will be enabled. Even more, certain Evolutions of Eevee can also be enabled.

Originally released in early July 2016, Pokemon GO is available for both iOS and Android handsets. Thanks to its popularity all over the world, the game was able to hit the 1 billion downloads milestone in February 2019 and currently has over 145 million active users. By December 2018, this title had managed to gross over US$3 billion in worldwide revenue.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
