Here's everything that's changed as part of the Pokemon Go update

Footsteps are out and bug fixes are in with the new Pokemon Go update.

The game of the moment has received its very first official update since its European release and a few of the minor glitches and annoyances have been ironed out.


The major change in the Pokemon Go update sees the game dispense with the footprint tracking system. Instead of seeing footsteps indicating how close nearby wild Pokemon would be, trainers are now offered nothing.

It is believed the system is being hidden while Niantic better refine their tracking system.


Those footprints no longer appear in the new Pokemon Go update.

This continues a series of shake ups that the augmented reality game has undertaken over the recent days.

A number of third party apps, including the popular tool Pokevision, has also disappeared overnight as Niantic and Nintendo continue to look at to refining their user experience.


iOS users will also notice that the game's battery saving mode has disappeared, in what is believed to be a temporary measure while the company works on server issues and crashes.

A new addition is the increased customisation and gym animations, as Niantic work to better maintain and refine their global gaming hit.

Here are the full list of changes made from the update.

Pokemon Go Update


There have been reports that the new update has been sending a lot of gamers back to level one, but as The Telegraph reports, this problem can be solved if Poketrainers log out of Google on mobile web browsers before logging back in through the Pokemon Go app.

All in all, it's a case of evolution, rather than revolution as Niantic and Nintendo look to take Pokemon Go forward. With the game besieged by crashes and server problems due to unforseen demand, it looks like the game makers are slowly tweaking things to make your adventure run a lot easier.
