Pokemon GO” has a long way to go, and the successful mobile game of Niantic Labs has prepared many new features beyond those that have already been added, including the recent addition of the second generation of pocket monsters. John Hanke of Niantic has said that there are three important updates that will change and evolve the operation of the game. What can we expect? No details have been given, but there is speculation that it will involve the inclusion of fighting between players without having to be in gyms, as well as exchanges.

New projects relating to the application

I think 'Pokémon GO' will continue to grow healthy in the coming years, but we are also working on other projects. There will be a new version of our original game 'Ingress' and other works, of which I cannot give more details today," said John Hanke, founder and CEO of Niantic. The executive was in charge of closing the second day of the Mobile World Congress (MWC) with a talk focused on highlighting the benefits of "Pokémon GO" that only lasted 20 minutes. The virtual reality game has been downloaded 650 million times and has recorded the capture of 88 million monsters.

What’s next?

This leaves the door open for the eventual inclusion of more creatures.

For now, the Pokémon of the Johto region are occupying the time of the trainers, who are busy filling their Pokédex between the creatures that hunt, those that evolve, and those that come out of eggs. Remember that until March 6th you have the opportunity to find a festive Pikachu (the same being but with a party cap) to celebrate the days of Pokémon.

Additional information

The game will receive three new updates throughout 2017 and Hanke pointed out that it is useful for children to go out, exercise, and interact with others without leaving aside the technology. A byproduct of the game has been the fact that users have certainly been motivated to go out more and get exercise while catching their favorite creatures.

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