Niantic did a couple of changes for both "Pokemon Go" version 1.13.3 for iOS and 0.43.3 for Android and a new update is already starting to roll out. One of the things that have changed has something to do on how the egg system works.

Niantic's official website includes an explanation about the all new version for the two platforms. Players can read on the website about Professor Willow having discovered that eggs have various patterns and that they depend on the distance needed to hatch them.

In the "Pokemon Go" game, there are three types of eggs, which include 2km, 5km and 10km, respectively. The distance simply implies how far the player have to walk to successfully hatch the egg and get the Pokemon.

Added to that, there was no visual difference among the three types, according to a report. The new update, however, 2km eggs are green, 5km eggs are orange, and the 10km eggs are purple. Apart from that, the app also included an icon to every Pokemon screen to show what type it is. For those fans of "Pokemon Go Plus", the update includes an indicator that will help you know when the wearable device is already running out of power.

Meanwhile, a new report is claiming that there is going to be a huge event that trainers should expect this coming Halloween. According to Phone Arena, a secret event is in the works and it is set to go live on October 31. The said event will not only take place on Halloween but for a number of days.

In that case, it seems like Niantic Labs has something big in store for its avid "Pokemon Go" fans. Phone Arena came up with the assumption above based on a mysterious message that Niantic shared on the Facebook page of its app just recently.
