After December 2016 it seems January 2017 is month of updates for Pokemon Go although this month did’t bring significant changes in the game but for sure brought two updates which consist of first update of month which took place on 17th Jan 2017 and second update which happened on 28th Jan 2017. After this update game updated to version 0.55.0 for Android and 1.25.0 for iOS and brought quite a few changes in code as well as gameplay.
A new term has appeared called CRITICAL CATCH in the game.No further information is seen is beside this term. According to data miners it isn’t something big but as a Pokemon fan I feel its gonna have a big future impact in game.
As this term was seen in wild encounter it could mean a Fight between wild pokemon as well as player pokemon would be included which will have same base as original pokemon game. Like you have to damage a pokemon to critical condition to catch it.Although as I mentioned there’s no supportive text to this but this could have a big impact.
SilphRoad data mine report said this about the update.
Along with the elemental badges that appear during wild Pokemon encounters, a new term has appeared called the critical catch. No other code appears to support this, so we don’t believe this to be anything big – but something new is (or will soon be) going on with wild encounters. Keep an eye out for what this could mean!?
Even though its still nothing in implementation but the data mine report seems too promising.Let us know what are your thoughts about this update also if you wanna get in touch with me, you can connect with me on social media like Snapchat- Vibsz16 and Instagram.
