'Pokemon Go' Latest Update: Niantic To Roll Out Major Gym Update; Trading Might Get Green Light Next
Some might say that "Pokemon Go" is losing its charm and novelty and is not as popular as it used to be in 2016. Although it is much too early to say, considering that the augmented-reality game still hasn't celebrated its first anniversary, could Niantic's game be really losing its charm?
According to IGN, the downward spiral of "Pokemon Go" is humbly acknowledged by Niantic. In fact, Niantic has reportedly admitted that "Pokemon Go" gyms need some major tweaks and adjustments. This could only mean one thing - the augmented-reality game might be getting a wash over soon.
According to Polygon, senior product manager, Tatsuo Nomura, discussed the weakness of "Pokemon Go" during the Game Developers Conference 2017. "The gym portion needs a lot more work, and we are trying to improve it and make a bigger change to how the system works," Nomura said. "Overall, I think we need a little bit more time to think through how we do it," he added
Tatsuo Nomura also admitted that Niantic had high hopes that more players would get engaged with "Pokemon Go" with the arrival of the Gym portion. However, they have been aware that the system in general needs several adjustments and refinement.
Apparently, Niantic is far from conceding to competition and is in fact, brewing a lot of big changes - from new content, features and branding. According to reports, one of the most exciting features in "Pokemon Go" that players must look forward to is the highly-requested trading system.
Once the trading system gets a green light and is implemented in "Pokemon Go," gyms and trainings will have a bigger, more comprehensive meaning. This time, players won't have to walk around listlessly just merely trying to catch pocket monsters. Instead, they can be more motivated to catch Pokemons because they can have fun trading them with other pocket monsters from other players.
