While playing Pokemon Go, did yo ever wonder why some of your pokemon have higher CP or health than others of the same species at the same level? Well the secret is that Niantic implemented IV’s into the game without letting players know if their pokemon had a good or bad IV to make the strongest one of that species. So what has been leaked on the next update is the fact that there will be a new tool built into the game allowing players to ask their team’s leader if their pokemon has a good potential to be strong or not. IV’s will be important for players to determine if a Pokemon is worthy of being evolved, kept, or if it is worth using against or defending gyms.
These details have been leaked from some testers in other countries. This could be the start of seeing some awesome new features being added rather than just seeing the boring bug fixes as part of updates. The idea of the team leader giving feedback on your pokemon is great as they haven’t really had that much of a role since the official announcement of what the leaders look like and their names.
After this update, the question rises of what will be next for Niantic to bring to the game. Will it be trading, Pokemon centers, or battling other trainers nearby. As of now we do not have an answer of what will come after, so all we can do is wait for this update and see where Niantic decides to go from there. As GameSpot has Niantic saying that they are currently working on “several new and exciting features” to come later in the game’s cycle. As of now there is no real expected date for the update to come out so just keep your eyes out on the app stores for an update to pop up.
