As we anticipated yesterday, ‘Pokémon GO’ will receive an update shortly with significant changes. In the information of the new update for Android devices, the dataminers seem to have found hidden novelties , such as the loading screen for summer or a new statistical concept connected to the Pokédex: the purification.
These are the novelties found by the dataminers:
Statistics of the Charm movement have been added to the Fairy type. Charm would be a new fast movement for the Fairy type Pokémon.
New badges have appeared.
New forms of Pokémon that do not evolve : Pikachu, Wurmple, Wobbuffet, Bulbasaur, Charmander, Charizard, Squirtle, Blastoise and Raticate.
A new summer loading screen has appeared , consisting of water-type Pokémon such as Psyduck, Mesprit, Uxie or Azelf among others.
New fields in the personalization of the avatar.
A new and mysterious code name “Kangaroo” was detected, suggesting that a new integration / transfer option is under way for Pokémon GO. Maybe related to Pokémon Sword and Shield.
New concept of purification . The Pokédex would now include this new field to determine how many times you have purified something. Its use is unknown.
It should be remembered that all these findings, despite having been found by dataminers in the game information, can not be taken as official . In the next few days we will see if it becomes official.
