Niantic plans to give “Pokemon Go” players a break this Thanksgiving, handing out double XPs and Stardust. Generous as it may sound, players will have to earn them the fair way meaning bots and trackers may not be used as an exploit.

Niantic has been rolling out subsequent updates the past weeks and the belief is that patch 0.47.1 was meant to address the use of third-party apps. FastPokeMap was the first one to fall, rendered useless for “Pokemon Go” and eventually folded.

As mentioned in a previous post, there are other trackers to turn to. However, it remains to be seen if these will give players some advantage as Niantic rolls out updates to improve on the security features of “Pokemon Go”.

Two new updates were released over the weekend and the belief of most is that these were intended to address “Pokemon Go” players who turn to bots and third-party tracker use. Looking over at the Reddit forums, a lot of gamers are expecting this though all that remains to be seen.

Regardless, the important thing right now is that the speculated goodies are a reality on “Pokemon Go”. This will run all the way to Nov. 30 which should keep AR gamers busy. Some tracker like PokeMesh could work.

Tracking on “Pokemon Go” leaves a lot to be desired though an improved in-game tracker will be revealed soon. The feature has been limited to gamers over in the San Francisco area but many are under the impression that this will be part of another big update on Niantic’s end for “Pokemon Go”.

The changes being applied by Niantic right now are crucial if they are to maintain their active player base for “Pokemon Go”. The numbers got a big bump last Halloween and new in-game events have seen most sticking around. Hopefully, the new improvements don’t drive them away.
