Updates

  • Devices on iOS 14 are now able to play Pokémon GO
  • A new search term “evolvemega” now filters Mega Evolution-eligible Pokémon in the Pokémon inventory

Bug Fixes

  • If a Trainer Mega Evolved Charizard into Mega Charizard Y for the first time but had not yet Mega Evolved this Charizard into Mega Charizard X, the Trainer would be prevented from Mega Evolving this Charizard into Mega Charizard Y unless they have enough Mega Energy for the higher cost to Mega Evolve Charizard into Mega Charizard X. This issue has been fixed.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the Purify button to not appear immediately after evolving a Shadow Pokémon
  • Fixed an issue to cause the Daily Free Box in the Shop to not disappear immediately after redemption (there would be an error on subsequent redemption attempts)
  • Fixed an issue that caused Meltan from the Mystery Box to appear with pink incense effect
