Hello Trainers! Pokémon GO 0.237.0 update is currently rolling out to a device near you and it brings with it some pretty neat updates under the hood. There’s been an update to the Unity Game engine, Shaymin’s signature move, more on Routes, and more!
💡 Disclaimer: You know the drill by now, everything in this article is data mined, and therefore subject to change or not even being released at all. All of this information is publicly provided by the PokéMiners and is included along with some of my own commentary.
Unity Version Update
0.237.0 brings with it a 2020 version of the Unity game engine, this means that the game will need to download every asset to support the new version. We highly recommend that you open the game for the first time after updating while you’re connected to WiFi, especially if you have limited data on your phone plan.
Some new assets were added in this update, they are likely all for the new routes feature that’s hopefully coming very soon.
Speaking of Routes
.BADGE_UNSET .BADGE_BRONZE .BADGE_SILVER .BADGE_GOLD
Route badges will come in Bronze, Silver, and Gold just like Gym badges.

Stamps and Categories for the routes are in the APK now, it looks like they’re getting really close.
This line was added to the buddy section, so it appears that your buddy will be able to grab you some route stamps along your travels? Likely to encourage you to check out a route that’s nearby.
The ability to dynamically build an original player avatar has been added. This is likely how the game will generate the NPCs that are along the routes.
Shaymin’s Signature Move
Shaymin’s signature move has been added, not shocking considering its the feature Mythical for Go Fest 2022
ITEM_GLOBAL_EVENT_TICKET_TO_GIFT ITEM_EVENT_TICKET_PINK_TO_GIFT ITEM_EVENT_TICKET_GRAY_TO_GIFT
As previously announced, the ability to gift tickets is in the APK now. This was announced for the upcoming Community Day, so keep your eyes peeled when the next Community Day ticket goes live.

New badges for the Okinawa air adventures event, Seville Safari zone, and 2 generic badges.
Fast Move Desync fix
BASELINE FAST_MOVE_ALWAYS_LEAK MINIGAME_FAST_MOVE_CLEAR
This looks like fixes for fast moves desyncing, as Niantic previously announced.
New Battle States
Two new battle states have been added for PvP as well.

This essentially all looks like they are attempting to improve the accuracy of Adventure Sync, with things like when your activity started/stopped, wheelchair distance, and information source all being added.
.get_NiaAccountId .set_NiaAccountId NiaAccountIdFieldNumber niaAccountId_ NiaAccountId .get_FriendNiaAccountId .set_FriendNiaAccountId
You’ll be able to link your Pokémon Go account to a Niantic account like how you link it to a Google or Facebook account.
Tracking In-Game Currency Exchange
Looks like Niantic wants to track the prices of things across the different currencies? Maybe for better consistency? Who knows.
Real-Time Inventory Updates
GetInventoryProto .get_TimestampMillis .set_TimestampMillis timestampMillis_ TimestampMillis GetInventoryResponseProto .get_InventoryDelta .set_InventoryDelta
They’ve added inventory updates, perhaps to track your inventory and refund items in real-time?

POI’s that have been disabled for whatever reason can now have their own colour.
