'Sightings' Tracking Feature, Safety Prompts, Battery Saver

'Sightings' Tracking Feature, Safety Prompts, Battery Saver

To make sure you're on the right build of the game, iOS users should be showing as playing version 1.3.0, while Android device users will be playing version.33.0. First, if you confirm you're a passenger and then switch out of the app to check something else (as many of us do when we're bored on our commutes), when you dive back into the app, the notice will display all over again.

These tracking features were previously broken beyond belief. Let's hope it's the latter, as these cheaters are really ruining the "Pokemon Go" experience for everyone-and it's impossible for Niantic to really not be aware, if they were able to detect third-party apps and Global Positioning System cheaters.

That was until last week's update, which not only blocked access to these apps, but also, completely removed the three steps feature entirely until such a time that it could be fixed. However, Niantic warns trainers to think it through thoroughly, as there is only one chance to change. Good news for those missing the golden days of Pokevision, where they could pinpoint exact Pokemon locations.

It also seems that the new nearby tracker is incredibly accurate.

Blue Jays acquire Feldman from Astros for minor leaguer
Otherwise, Pirates fans will remember this as a salary dump - and one that might've cost them a solid young player or two . The game could have easily been ended in the 13th inning with Alex Bregman at the plate and a runner at second and third.

The short awnser is no and this is where it gets REALLY interesting. For the majority of players, this is as simple as adding some grass to the backgrounds of those nearby Pokemon. And there's now two segments of this tracker - one is called 'Sightings' and the other 'Nearby'. It shows the Pokemon which are spawning in the nearby area. This tracker tells you what Pokemon are now in your area and is basically the same type of tracker you saw when Niantic took away the steps from the original tracker.

Enabled the ability for Trainers to change their nickname one time, so please choose your new nickname wisely. "The pokemon is in the pink circle I'm guessing?" To many the game has become far less fun but its developers appear to be on point in normalizing the situation given the new update.

But, the one feature update that everyone has been waiting for is finally being improved and now being tested with a subset of users. "So I imagine any pokemon you're now tracking will be inside that pulse". Presumably, this feature will eventually rollout to all users. The hope is that now the game won't show you Pokemon that appear to be within reach, but actually aren't anywhere near you.
