Download for Pokemon GO 1.55.1 for iOS and 0.85.2 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.

Treecko, Torchic, Mudkip, and several more Pokémon originally discovered in the Hoenn region in the Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire video games will start appearing in Pokémon GO for the first time ever

Introducing a new dynamic weather system in Pokémon GO that will change the way you and the millions of Trainers around the world discover, catch, and interact with Pokémon.

Bug fixes

While the previously 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, the new dynamic weather system in the game will now impact Pokemon in a variety of different ways.

The updated versions 1.55.1/0.85.2 downloads are rolling out now and will likely be available to everyone by the time this is read by them. We suggest you download the updates as soon as possible to get the best available experience.
