"Pokemon Go" has gone through some slight changes recently, which is still uncertain if for the better or the opposite. However, some leaked information seems to claim that there could be more good left for the game soon enough.

After the penalties imposed in the past for "Pokemon Go" cheating and using violating third-party apps, the world may expect to see less of the said augmented reality game. This case is wrong, however, as some codes for trading Pokemon may have leaked online.

According to I Tech Post, some avid "Pokemon Go" dedicated Reddit users under TheSilphRoad may have stumbled upon some backend lines of code that somewhat implies potential trading. Such encoding terms found include "trade_search," "trade_offer," "trade_result" and "trade_response."

Despite the aforesaid codes, it has not been confirmed whether these lines were made for the existing and perhaps the upcoming "Pokemon Go" version, or if it belong to the previous releases. Codes can simply be misplaced along groups of other lines of codes that cannot be deciphered easily if not a professional.

As per BGR, players can aptly prepare for the hard-to-beat creatures of "Pokemon Go," given that a recent tier list shows which ones are to be given the more deserved effort. The first tier belongs to Snorlax, Dragonite and Lapras, followed by Slowbro, Polywrath, Exeggutor, Wigglytuff and Vaporean for 1.5, with Venusaur and Omanyte for tier 2.

The list continues with the third tier belonging to Arcanine, Victrebell, Vileplum, Hypno and Clefable. Tier four is made up of Charizard, Muk, Golduck, Gyarados, Dewgong and Kanghaskhan. Finishing off the "Pokemon Go" tier list is the fifth tier with Golem, Rhydon, Blastoise, Tentacruel, Nidoqueen and Nidoking.
