Download: Pokemon GO 1.31.0 For iOS, 0.61.0 For Android Released

Pokemon GO version 1.31.0 for iOS and 0.61.0 for Android now available to download on their respective app stores. Here are the details.

Pokemon GO may have hopped off the hype train, but that doesn’t mean the game is done. It still has an impressive player-base and it’s for those still loyal to the game that the developers continue to roll out frequent improvements. Latest in its line of updates is version 1.31.0 for iOS and 0.61.0 for Android.

Unlike certain recent releases that added support for new Pokemon or special events, like the recent Water Festival, this one focuses primarily on minor improvements and fixes.

The official release notes aren’t extensive, though the things they do mention include support for Traditional Chinese language, a minor improvement in the UI, specifically the scroll bar in the Pokemon collection screen, changes to the text and bug fixes.

Pokémon GO is in the process of being updated to version 0.61.0 for Android and 1.31.0 for iOS devices. Below are some release notes and comments from our development team.

  • Added Traditional Chinese language support.
  • Updated the Pokémon collection screen scroll bar.
  • Various bug fixes.
  • Minor text fixes.

Nothing to be too excited about, though it’s nice to see that the developers are striving to keep their prized game bug-free with regular updates. Many a player might have lost interest in the game, as was bound to happen, but Niantic continues to have faith in it and support it as fervently as they did during its early days.

Everyone likes to see new Pokemon added to the roster, but with many players likely not done catching all the ones added with the Generation 2 update, there’s still quite a bit of hunting fun to be had. Plus, there’s always the possibility that Niantic quietly added more Shiny Pokemon to the game, which they plan to reveal at a later date, as they did with the addition of Shiny Magikarp and Shiny Gyarados. Keep your eyes peeled!
