Hello Trainers!  Pokémon GO 0.175.0 is slowly rolling out through the Google Play Store (the iOS App Store usually lags behind).  Despite it being a minor update, there is actually a lot to cover in this one from Galaran Pokémon, free boxes, friend searching is live, Jessie & James, and STICKERS!!!

ERROR_NO_INVITE

Error handling for the remote raids

Blasting Off Again!

JESSIE
JAMES

Are Jessie and James preparing to blast off into Pokémon Go?  Right now it’s just the names, but Ash’s old nemeses Jessie and James are referenced in the code!  They are listed as NPC’s like grunts and the leaders, so fingers crossed we’ll get a chance to battle them.

Battle Professor Willow?

PROFESSOR

The Professor has been designated as an NPC now as well.

Shop Updates

Free Boxes?

FREE 
FREE_CATEGORY 
IAP_CATEGORY_FREE

Assets for 2 new boxes labelled Free Box 1 and Free Box 2 have been added.  Perhaps to replace the 1 coin boxes?  They also get their own section in the shop.

Tracking Total Purchases

.get_TotalNumPurchases 
.set_TotalNumPurchases

Is Niantic going to be tracking our total purchases now?

Friendship Improvements

Friend Online Status

.get_OnlineStatus 
.set_OnlineStatus
OnlineStatus
STATUS_ONLINE
STATUS_OFFLINE

Are we going to be able to see which friends are online?  I would imagine that we’ll be able to hide this, similarly to hiding our last caught Pokémon.  But don’t quote me on that…

Search your Friend List

filter_friend_key_rank
filter_friend_key_giftable
filter_friend_key_lucky
filter_friend_key_interactable

FriendLevel1 – Will show all of your Good Friends
FriendLevel2 – Will show all of your Great Friends
FriendLevel3 – Will show all of your Ultra Friends
FriendLevel4 – Will show all of your Best Friends

interactable – Will show all friends you can interact with today.

lucky – Will show all of your lucky friends

giftable – Should show all your friends who can accept gifts, however, it is still not working.

These all work with the And (&) and Not (!) filters

Friendship level Slider

FriendshipLevelHeartSliderWidget
BuddyLevelHeartSliderWidget

Looks like a slider for friendship levels, maybe a way to see friendship points?

Share Details?

giftboxId 
RemoveGiftbox 
SharedFriendData 
dataFromMe 
dataToMe
GetFriendSharedData
GetGiftboxDetails

Maybe a way for us to limit what information is shared with our friends?

Gifting 2.0

EnableGiftabilityV2 
get_GiftingV2Enabled

It would appear that a new level of gifting is coming, Gifting V2.

Daily Encounter

Your own daily encounter

DAILY_ENCOUNTER_DESPAWN_RANGE_MULTIPLIER 
DAILY_ENCOUNTER_SPAWN_RANGE_MULTIPLIER 
encounterStateHandle 
dailyEncounterService 
GET_DAILY_ENCOUNTER 
DAILY_ENCOUNTER 
get_IsDailyEncounterEnabled

Daily encounter?  This appears to be a daily encounter that will spawn within a certain distance of where you are.  It looks like it can be flipped on and off remotely

Streak

GetDailyEncounterProto 
GetDailyEncounterOutProto 
ALREADY_FINISHED_FOR_TODAY 
MISSED_FOR_TODAY 
NO_POKEMON_AVAILABLE 
DailyEncounterProto 
DailyEncounterOutProto 
ENCOUNTER_NOT_AVAILABLE

It looks like it will be part of a new streak.

Tutorial

DAILY_BONUS_ENCOUNTER_TUTORIAL

Of course, it has a tutorial

Stickers!

Seriously though… Stickers

.get_DefaultStickerMaxCount 
.set_DefaultStickerMaxCount 
.get_StickerMetadata 
.set_StickerMetadata 
.get_StickerId 
.set_StickerId 
.get_StickerUrl 
.set_StickerUrl 
MaxCount
ERROR_PLAYER_HAS_NO_STICKERS

Stickers?  Are we going to get a sticker album?  Are we going to be able to dress up our avatar?  Our Pokémon?

In Shop Item

ITEM_CATEGORY_STICKER 
IAP_CATEGORY_STICKER

Stickers will be their own item and will be purchasable in the shop.

Error

ERROR_PLAYER_HAS_NO_STICKERS

Error for when you have no stickers.  Why don’t you have stickers, everybody loves stickers!

AR Occlusion

ardk_download_prompt_dowload_size_description%
ardk_download_prompt_dowload_progress

As previously referenced in previous text updates, this update finally brings us some code to support AR Occlusion.  It looks like you’ll need to download additional software to make it work, and you’ll be able to turn it on and off from the encounter screen.

Go Battle League Updates

Premier League

LeagueType 
BorderColorHex 
PREMIER

Premier League is coming!

White List/Ban List

.get_PokemonWhitelist 
.set_PokemonWhitelist 
.get_PokemonBanlist 
.set_PokemonBanlist

It looks like the Go Battle League will have separate White lists and Ban Lists.

Retries

maxRetries 
SubmitCombatActionWithRetries 
RetryCombatAction

Additional handling of the play until you win.

Wayfarer Badge

.get_NumWayfarerAgreement 
.set_NumWayfarerAgreement 
.get_WayfarerAgreementUpdateMs 
.set_WayfarerAgreementUpdateMs

This appears to be how Pokémon Go will track progress for the Wayfarer Badge.

Free Transform

Could this mean that Ditto will be making an appearance in PVP?

Speculation and Conclusions

Seeing Jessie and James referenced in the code if only by name, is very exciting.  Hopefully, we’ll get a chance to face off against them in battle sometime in the near future.

It looks like they’re getting closer to releasing invites to remote raids, there’s a lot that’s left up in the air surrounding that.  How far away will we be able to invite our friends?  Will there be a friendship requirement?  Can we invite more than one friend at a time?  So many questions, we’ll need to wait for an official announcement.  Still, very exciting to see the code filling out.

Gen 8!!  What Gen 8 Pokémon form (or new Pokémon) are you most excited about?  Galaran Zigzagoon for me.

Lastly, the daily encounter sounds very interesting as well.  Will it be as simple as a Pokémon spawn that we can trigger ourselves from wherever we are?  This would help people in more rural areas get their daily catches.  Very exciting.

That’s all!  Lots of good stuff in this update and it looks like some very exciting things are coming!  I hope you enjoyed reading, stay safe out there trainers.
