  • Niantic to release pokemon go to more countries
  • Google helped Niantic to stabilize servers
  • Aware and fixing bugs and three paw glitch
  • The pokemon company working to deliver next generation pokemon character designs. Will be much more regional, hence the need to trade.
  • Trading most likely face to face like Gameboy cable to cable days
  • Trainers and businesses will be able to customize Pokestops via items. The word “poke centers” was used.
  • Gyms will also be customizable by teams to improve competitive play, similar to Ingress. Team captains will play bigger roles on team vs team.
