Team GO Rocket

Have you recently seen Giovanni? He seems to have disappeared? Or is he making up new plans for Team GO Rocket? Your Super Rocket Radar will not be able to trace Giovanni during this Season, so you can safely unequip it. Nobody knows what Giovanni is up to and we have stay alert this season to make sure Team GO Rocket doesn't execute evil plans.


New Evolution Feature

Sometime in September (no exact date and time announced yet) a new feature will go live that will especially be useful to those that play PvP battles. With this new feature you will be able to see the post-Evolution CP of your Pokémon before evolving. This should make sure you will never evolve a Pokémon anymore that doesn't make the CP limit of certain battle leagues. There will be an Evolution preview screen, providing the following information:

  • The current Pokémon and CP

  • The Evolution of the current Pokémon and the CP of that Evolution

  • In what leagues the evolved Pokémon is eligible


Have fun in September, Trainers!
