Niantic announced a new version of Pokémon GO on their official blog. The change log is not big, but it’s interesting to see that they’re incorporating a majority of player feedback.
The biggest new feature is the option to bulk transfer Pokémon to Professor Willow. This feature was requested many times by players worldwide and it’s finally implemented.
Smaller, but still notable changes include Type Badges displaying on Pokémon in Gyms and UI improvements with Buddy Pokémon.
