  • Trainers will soon be able to interact with an image gallery showing different PokéStop and Gym images. This feature will roll out in different regions over time—starting with level 40+ Trainers in New Zealand on Tuesday, February 9, 2021—and will become available worldwide to Trainers level 38 and above toward the end of March 2021.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue that caused incorrect assets to be used in parts of the game (including the “date caught” box in Pokémon detail page and Research Breakthrough box on the Field Research page).
  • Removed broken tags on Pokémon that had been traded with tags before the relevant bug fix in version 0.197.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the “giftable” search term to return incorrect results if a friend had opened a Gift that day.
  • Fixed a visual error that caused rewarded Candy XL to not appear consistently when transferring several Pokémon at once.
  • Fixed an issue that caused Stardust from feeding Pokémon in Gyms to not count toward certain tasks
  • Fixed an issue that caused the Picnicker Badge to update inaccurately. Note that there may still be a delay when the badge is updated.
