Download for Pokemon GO 1.39.0 for iOS and 0.69.0 for Android APK are now rolling out via the Apple App Store and Google Play Store respectively.

Pokemon GO fans should be getting excited right about now, with the game’s creators Niantic announcing that there are two newly updated versions of the game now ready and rolling out.

When it comes to updates, Niantic does not always go into detail as to what it has changed in each new release of Pokemon GO, and while this release does not dive too deeply into what can be expected as part of the update, there is at least a collection of bullet points that will be of interest to fans of the game, and some of those are definitely worth paying attention to.

-Added icons to the Pokémon information screen to indicate how the Pokémon was caught.

-Added the ability for Trainers to spin the Photo Disc at a Gym after completing a Raid Battle.

-Added the ability for Trainers to send Berries to their Pokémon defending Gyms through the Pokémon info screen when they are not nearby. Motivation regained will be less effective through this method.

-Added the ability for Trainers to give Berries to Pokémon defending Gyms if their motivation meter is full.

-Improved Pokémon Collection screen search functionality.

-Fixed an issue where Trainers were unable to complete Raid Battles started before time expired on the map view.

-Fixed an issue where Pokémon are not properly returned to their Trainer after defending a Gym.
Various bug fixes.

While the recently announced big revamp of the way gyms work and new Raid Battle feature in Pokemon GO certainly grabbed all of the headlines, there were some changes in today’s release that deserves a little bit of attention. For example, gamers are now able to send Berries to their Pokemon defending Gyms and as well as the ability to spin the Photo Disk at a Gym, something that will be gratefully received by those with large collections.

The updated bug fix 1.39.0/0.69.0 downloads are rolling out now and will likely be available to everyone by the time you read this. We suggest you download the updates as soon as possible to get the best available experience.
