"Pokemon Go" received an update a few days ago on iOS to version 1.17.0 and Android version 0.47.1. However, reports indicate that this is not the update most players were hoping for.

The "Pokemon Go" update that players were reportedly waiting was expected to include the 100 Gen. 2 Pokemon and the ability to raise Pokemon babies instead of Pokemon egg hatching.   The said update, which also features Player vs. Player battles and trading is believed to happen next month. There are speculations that the much-awaited "Pokemon Go" update will be released in Dec. 7.

The recently released "Pokemon Go" update launched the game to eight new markets - Israel, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Jordan, Qatar, Lebanon and the United Arab Emirates. This means that those residing in these countries can now go to the Google Play Store and install the "Pokemon Go" game.

Meantime, the update also comes with a fix for a bug that allows the Egg-hatching cutscene animation to appear on the map view, not to mention the minor text flaws that were also corrected. That being said, the number of "Pokemon Go" players are expected to increase in the coming weeks as new markets in the Middle East have been added, according to Phone Arena.

"Pokemon Go" is a game that provides an experience between the fantasy and the real life world. Players are enabled to explore real life places to look for a Pokemon that pops up virtually on their mobile phone screens.

The "Pokemon Go" game works as an interactive GPS that guides the players in a range of locations for different missions, as the game simultaneously interacts with the players that have characters. The game's main objective is to allow the players to experience their community and play in real lifetime along with their friends and nearby "Pokemon Go" players as well.

"Pokemon Go" allows an opportunity to everyone to become a Pokemon trainer and master, while focusing on the surroundings, battles and experience a better role playing game, Hawkeye News reported. Watch NEW POKEMON GO UPDATE! THANKSGIVING SPECIAL EVENT & BATTLE FRIENDS UPDATE NEWS!
