Developer Niantic has today announced download of Pokemon Go 1.29.1 for iOS and 0.59.1 for Android version of the game. The new versions for the game are being pushed out to both the Google Play Store and Apple App Store at the time of this writing.

While the hype surrounding Pokemon Go is nowhere near the levels that it was months ago, the game is still hugely popular and all updates are greeted with equal parts excitement and skepticism as users wonder what Niantic is adding and indeed tweaking.

According to the post in which the updates were announced, Niantic’s developers are not adding a huge amount this time around, with “the 7-day ‘First PokéStop of the Day’ streak will now award a random Evolution item” and “minor text fixes” being the only changes added in this new version.

Niantic has historically simply listed “fixes” in when updating its Pokemon Go game, though the addition of a new reward for a 7-day ‘First PokéStop of the Day’ streak will be of interest to fans of the game, no doubt.

Pokemon Go is a free app, downloadable for both Android and iOS which includes various in-app purchases. The game launched last year to much fanfare and acclaim, however as time has passed it is fair to say that the title does not demand the same level of excitement as it once did.

However, Pokemon and indeed the Pokemon Go game do both have a hardcore fanbase which will continue to enjoy the franchise and play the game long after the more fickle gamers have moved on. Niantic is clearly determined to continue work on the game, and given its huge earning potential that should perhaps not come as too big of a surprise to anyone.

As mentioned earlier, downloads for version 0.59.1 for Android and 1.29.1 for iOS are still being rolled out on respective app stores right now and should be available to download for you depending on the region you are in.
