Pokémon GO version 0.49.1 (Android) and 1.19.1 (iOS) is rolling out as we speak, and the update brings an important time-saving feature - the ability to transfer monsters to Professor Willow in batches, rather than one at a time.
Trading unwanted 'mon for candy has become an annoying yet essential process for many players, and this fix has been demanded for quite some time.
Here are the full update notes:
- Trainers will be able to transfer multiple Pokémon at a time to Professor Willow. To use this function, press and hold on a Pokémon.
- Pokémon type icons have been added to the Gym battle approach and Gym battle screen.
- The total Candy count for your Buddy Pokémon has been added to the buddy information screen.
- The total kilometers a buddy has walked has been added to the information screen of each Pokémon that has ever been your buddy.
- Minor text fixes.
This update is also likely to be laying down the foundations for a big refresh which will bring more monsters to the game.
That's a fantastically gruesome picture.
When was 'releasing' pokemon back in to the wild ever mashing the poor 'mons into mince?!! Sick!
However it is a welcome feature.
@Kit Since Pokémon Go... ever wonder why you transfer one pidgey to the Professor & you get one pidgey flavour candy back?
I actually know someone who was put off trying Pokemon GO because people would always refer to transferring Pokemon as 'turning them into candy'... which they thought was disgusting (and based on that picture, I'd have to agree)... it was only when I explained it to them that they actually decided to try the game.
I can see how this is useful for using those lucky eggs, but really I just don't care. I transfer the unwanted pokemon when I catch them, so this won't really improve my experience at all.
How about removing stardust entirely? There's already a progression mechanic with the candies. Stardust just artificially makes it impossible for me to train multiple pokemon, and is the only real benefit for catching useless pokemon in the first place.
Imagine Pokemon eats "Pokemon" candy...
....So it's easier to get more Pidgey candy...sighs
It's gonna be years before I can fully evolve my other Pokemon.
That photo deserves a Pulitizer.
Another good update. Nintendo could learn a lot form Ninatic about how to update a game to make them better when fans complain.
Took me a good 10 seconds to realise that wasn't a screenshot from the new update...
Made of Mewtwo ? XD
I find it weird that if you walk with a Pokémon it generates a candy, I am sure the candy is something the Pokémon generate on their own.
Short and sweet. Quick and painless.
@DragonEleven If your friend found that bad, make sure they never look up what Professor Oak does to the Pokémon that isn't chosen on YouTube. That one had be gagging.
Mass-transfers are something I've wanted for a long time.
My local area is swamped with Magnemite and Voltorb and transferring these guys usually takes forever.
Enough for me to stick on a Youtube playlist or something whilst I sort it out.
We now know why Rare really left Nintendo...
This is nice. I'd also like to see collapsable groups of each pokemon or just an auto-counter. It would be another nice helper when your hoarding 'mon for a lucky egg evolving session.
So... Starbucks soon and "more Pokémon" as well which might mean Gen. 2. Really curious how they'll pull that off.
Well, that's a lovely image :/ Made me laugh though, in a creeped-out kind of way. It's like all those fairy stories that are actually horrifying.
holy smokes that image is my new wallpaper.
Oh my....... (about of the picture...)
But nice about of the new feature en Pokemon Go!
Nice, makes the process of preparing for Lucky Egg evolving a lot faster.
@Smash_kirby @RupeeClock unless they poop candies out?
My buddy Pokemon doesn't produce them it 'finds a candy'.
