Coming Soon: Testing improvements to the Pokémon GO experience

Trainers, In the coming months, we’ll be testing minor gameplay adjustments in certain parts of the world.

We continually strive to improve the Pokémon GO experience. As such, we want to ensure the changes we make are beneficial to—and make a strong, positive impact on—the greater community, as well as each individual Trainer’s experience, before we launch them globally. We appreciate the community’s support, particularly within these regions, as we test variations of these features to understand what works best!

Here’s a sneak peek at some of the features we’ll be testing over the next few months.

  • Nickname suggestions for new Trainers
  • An expanded set of Trainer Tips
  • New PokéStop functionalities
  • Egg hatch updates, including the option to skip the hatch animation
  • A Special Research story that introduces new Trainers to the world of Pokémon GO

Thank you for continuing to help us improve Pokémon GO. We look forward to seeing the results of our experiments, and hope to roll out final versions of these features for all players once testing has concluded and we’ve confirmed the updates work as envisioned.

Please be aware of your surroundings and follow guidelines from local health authorities when playing Pokémon GO. Upcoming events are subject to change.
