Pokemon Go: Next Major Update Anticipated To Arrive On Valentine's Day WIth Legendary Moltres, Zapdos And Articuno [Video]
Niantic may surprise fans in the coming times as it is being said that Pokemon Go might include legendary Pokemon in the next update. If this turns out to be true, then fans would be delighted as they have been waiting for this update for a long time.
The wait for Pokemon such as Moltres, Zapdos and Articuno could come to an end with the next update as Niantic is said to be in the mood to oblige fans, reports DailyExpress. According to a source, Niantic is considering the rollout of the legend as part of its next major update.
It could coincide with the Chinese New Year or even Valentine's Day. Both the occasions seem like safe option for the themed content.
Speaking of the update, it is said that the ban in China is the reason the company is considering the rollout. China blocked the app just this week and now, it is said that the game developer is seeking a way to arrest the decline, claims Slash Gear. The Asian country is concerned about the security risks associated with the augmented reality game.
The government departments have been evaluating the risks of the game. The app's use of Google maps to track the location of the player has raised fears in the government circles and since the game developer has not been able to offer a solution as yet, it has been blocked.
Meanwhile, it has been revealed that continued Pokemon Go updates have kept users engaged for the entire time since the game was launched and it could be adding years to the life of the players. New research says that those who play the game are three times as likely to meet official activity guidelines in the US.
This has been known to yield a positive effect on the life expectancy of people. The Stanford University researchers have said that engaged users of Pokemon Go were likely to increase average daily activity by 26 percent.
What is more, Nintendo has sent out email stock alerts for the Pokemon Go Plus trackers, informing fans that they could pre-order ahead of a stock refresh at the end of March. This device allows players to enjoy the game even when they are not looking at their smartphone.
