Pokemon GO’s servers seem to have undergone a recent update, as noted by many players and compiled by reddit user NaestaChalmers. Players have mentioned noticing increased potion drop rates, as well as faster egg hatchings. Here’s a list of all of the alterations noticed so far:


  • New movesets for some Pokémon (confirmed by Game_Master file)


  • Dodging changed to general max. 75% damage evasion (confirmed by Game_Master file)


  • Regional spawn rates increased heavily (confirmed by obvious observations)


  • Increased potion drop rates (highly likely due to multiple observations and testing)


  • Rare spawn increase in general (highly likely due to multiple observations)


  • Faster egg hatch updates (likely due to observations and minor tests – needs more testing)


  • Nest changes, needs to be further elaborated (unlikely: some observations but no general evidence, most did not change)


Pokémon GO is available for iOS and Android devices.
