Exciting changes continue to come to “Pokémon Go [VIDEO]." Following the success of Operation Portal Recon [VIDEO], Niantic is ready to bring back portal submissions, and the reopening of the #Ingress portal submissions will come to ''#Pokémon GO'' very soon. It is worth mentioning that spawns in rural areas will increase, and more PokeStops will be available for most rural trainers.

Here is everything we know right now concerning the new changes and improvements in the “Pokémon Go” app, and the reopening of the portal submissions.

Has the portal submission backlog finally been cleared?

For more than a year, many ''Pokémon Go'' players and trainers in rural areas have been reporting a lot of issues when it comes to playing the reality augmented game.

Since the reality game became available about a year ago, most of the rural trainers have been complaining that they could not use most of the game, since there is not much data available in their local area, which is the cause of the issues these users have experienced. Another inconvenience initially reported by many "Pokémon Go" trainers is that most of the rural places do not have many Pokémon spawns.

It is worth mentioning that the big news for today in a local Ingress event, in which Niantic officially confirmed the reopening of portal submissions, leads us to believe that the OPR’s backlog has finally been cleared. According to the information revealed today by the Ingress agents, it is very likely that Niantic is ready to take on the next major feature to update the location data base in places that Ingress and ''Pokémon Go'' has not taken off that well.

Additional information:

Besides, it is worth mentioning that Niantic’s developers announced that the company has finally fixed the “Pokémon Go” raid battles eggs bugs. San Francisco and Tokyo will be the most privileged places when it comes to spawns. It might not bother some “Pokémon Go” players and trainers all that much. However, the fact that they will get Mewtwo earlier than the rest of the players around the world could make some differences when catching the most powerful creatures in the game.

For now, we have to wait Niantic comes out with more information concerning the new changes and improvements in the “Pokémon Go” app, and the reopening of the portal submissions.

This is all the information known so far. Keep enjoying the game, and stay tuned for more updates as they become available. #Operation Portal Recon
