#Pokémon GO” is on a roll. #niantic labs recently celebrated the game achieving 65 million active users, and it’s still on the upswing taking awards in recent months. To keep the hype up, update 1.31 for iOS and 0.61 on Android has been rolled out, and while the patch notes indicate quite the tiniest of enhancements, it does include one important thing.

Egg collection dates are fixed!

Previously, “Pokémon GO” egg collectors have reported of inaccurate dates in the game’s inventory. Instead of tracking as they should, stored eggs would show as if they were acquired on the exact same date.

Looking at it now, correct dates are indicated, possibly because of the recent patch.

The egg date issue is not specified among the patch notes, as it only indicates minor text fixes and various bug fixes. Niantic has also updated the scroll bar in the Pokémon collection screen, as well as added support for Chinese.

As of this writing, there has been no indication of players protesting over “useless updates,” although #The Silph Road is keeping a close eye on it. They’ve since datamined update 0.61, and so far, the patch notes are precise.

Does co-op feature come very soon?

“With spring arriving in the northern hemisphere, players can look forward to all-new cooperative social gameplay experiences in Pokémon Go that will give Trainers new and exciting reasons to get back into the sunshine,” Niantic Labs wrote on their official blog Friday.

Naturally, The Silph Road quickly geeked out on the “new co-op social gameplay” part.

Dataminers were quick to post a code on Reddit, which mentions “nearby raids” and updated gym features. As if the datamined code wasn’t ambiguous enough, there’s still much to learn about the raids concept. The code suggests that “Pokémon GO” players would soon receive notifications of nearby raids within the vicinity. There's also an indication that players could kick out pocket monsters out of a gym.

Taking dataminers’ always accurate game findings into account, Tatsuo Nomura’s previous statement make a lot of sense now. According to the Niantic Labs exec, an upcoming game feature is going to be proximity-based, meaning players will soon find themselves actually huddle up and played together in real life.

The good guys at Silph are still verifying the datamined code, but what’s sure as of now is that Niantic Labs has something big planned out for “PoGo” players this spring.
