Two new titles have been added: Great League Remix and Retro Cup. We’re still not clear if it refers to two separate cups, or is GL Remix a name for an upcoming Great League update.

Launch App Deep Link

Niantic is adding a permanent link that can open the Pokémon GO app once clicked. We’re guessing the intent is to launch the app from their (or a third party) website? Doesn’t work yet, we tried.
