Pokemon Go is one of the most popular games in the world and what’s amazing about it is the fact that it implements AR (augmented reality) technology in order to make it possible for fans to catch rare Pokemon during their exploration trips. After installing Pokemon Go on your smartphone, you will be surprised just how many Pokemon have been hiding in the virtual world until now.
Nonetheless, the reason why this highly popular mobile game is making headlines on our website today is because Niantic has just released a new update. This is a high priority update and we are advising all Pokemon Go fans to download it as soon as it pops up in their notifications panel. Now, let’s go ahead and check out everything there is to know about the new update.
Pokemon Go 0.146.2 Update
The first thing that we want to cover about the new update is that despite being targeted at smartphones that are running on Android 8.0 Oreo, it can also be installed on smartphones that are running on a minimum of Android 4.4 KitKat operating system, thus making it possible for people who use older smartphones to play the mobile game as well. In addition, the update weighs in at 94.57MB of internal storage space.
Preparing for Summer Events
One of the reasons why Pokemon Go has managed to stand the test of time and to keep the gameplay fresh and exciting over the years is thanks to special time-limited events. “Are you ready for our summer events? Our first Pokémon GO Fest of the summer is coming up! Even if you won’t be joining us June 13–16 in Chicago, there are still tons of ways to join in the fun. In this newest update, you may see some hints of what you can look forward to this summer,” said the developers of Pokemon Go in the patch notes.
