The Pokemon Go team has announced that it is expanding the Nearby tracking feature to large parts of Europe, as well as the continental US regions which were yet to receive it. The statement was made via a post on the official Pokemon Go blog yesterday.
Pokemon Go developer Niantic first began testing the feature in August in San Francisco, before expanding it to further cities in November. The function helps trainers discover the location of nearby Pokemon by showing a picture of them at the Poke Stop they are closest to. If a trainer taps Poke Stop icon, the featured Pokemon’s approximate location will be revealed.
“We will continue to review the feedback submitted on our official social media accounts and in other channels and make changes if necessary,” said the Pokemon Go team in the announcement.
In other recent Pokemon Go news, weight was added to the rumor that an influx of 100 new Pokemon is on the horizon via an analysis of recent game code. The new Pokemon are now speculated to arrive in an update this month.
