Hello Trainers! 0.215.0 is currently rolling out to a device near you and it brings with it Account specific Pokéstop & Gym interaction ranges, more on Buddy powered up Pokéstops and the Address Book/Contact List syncing, eggs for iOS users? and more!
You can check out the PokéMiners post on Reddit here. Go give them an upvote! You know the drill by now, everything in this article is datamined, and therefore subject to be changed or not even being released at all.
So let’s get into it!!
Pokéstop Interaction Range
interaction_range_meters far_interaction_range_meters remote_interaction_range_meters
These fields were all added to the game master, while they used to only be in the global settings. This means that Niantic can make the interaction range account-specific.
I have a strong feeling that the increased interaction range that we’ve all enjoyed during these last few months will be included in the Subscription Service when it drops. I’d almost guarantee it.
Contact List Updates

Not a whole lot that’s “new” here. You’ll be able to sync your contacts with your phone’s contact list to Pokémon Go. It appears that you’ll then be able to scroll your contact list in-game and send invites to people directly from the game.
There’s also the ability to opt out.
Buddy Powered Up PokeStop
It looks like you will get an affection heart when you visit a Powered-up Pokéstop.
GeneratePokemonAddress LoadPokemonPrefab LoadPokemonIcon
The Miners have been reporting on this for a little while, but this update starts to actually use the new “Addressable” system. This is a feature of Unity that makes it easier to manage assets in-game.
Cross Game Social Settings
There are now settings that cover all Niantic games simultaneously. These are:
Disabled features, which can be:
CONTACT_METHOD_UNSET EMAIL SMS SendSmsRequest SmsAddress SmsBody
So this looks like Niantic is going to be sending out text messages? Likely for game invites, but an odd choice.
Changing Your Name
ChangeFullNameSettingWidget currentName FullNameInputGuiController
You’ll be able to change your full name, it appears that Niantic is working towards getting all of its databases consolidated.
HATCHING NOT_HATCHING HATCHED IOS_EGGS IosEggs
Are iOS getting their own eggs? Perhaps sponsored eggs from iOS-specific ads? IOS_EGGS could mean something totally different… who knows!
