It has only been a week, but a new Pokemon GO update has hit. Version 0.41.2 for Android and 1.11.2 for iOS features a new special “Catch Bonus” that’ll earn you more opportunities to catch rare Pokemon, has now gone live. Niantic posted about this on their website last week.

“We are adding a new feature which grants a catch bonus when you earn medals based on catching certain types of Pokémon (Kindler, Psychic, Gardener, etc.). These new bonuses will give you a better chance of capturing Pokémon with a related type. For example, as you reach a higher tier for the Kindler Medal, your bonus to catch Fire-type Pokémon such as Charmander, Vulpix and Ponyta increases.”

Also, you can now bring up to six Pokemon to friendly gyms, when you’re training, your enemies CP can be lowered so you’re not overwhelmed, Egg and incubator screens now update automatically without have you exit and return to the screen, evolution times have been decreased, and finally, several bugs have been fixed as well.

The moment details emerge for the next Pokemon GO update, we’ll give them to you.
