"Pokemon Go" may have announced a few feats here and there-particularly for what they are to give the fans after their Halloween update. Given that there are a lot of feats still yet to surface, the secrets may be kept from the fans even further from here on out.

It was said that a new version has emerged for "Pokemon Go," namely v0.47.1, which already has some changes and potential additions. Interestingly, the company may be trying to keep their agenda on the low until the time is due-like those who may have uncovered the files for Ditto.

According to posts of The Silph Road, "Pokemon Go" might now see the dawning of the shape-shifting Pokemon after a nifty array of details leaking online. Some say that players might come across the creature out in the open, as well as being available for battle. Other effects, both visual and for the audio are also said to apparently be available for the creature.

It can be recalled in the past that Niantic teased Ditto being in-game, though finding out may be the trickier part for "Pokemon Go" players. Some speculations suggest otherwise and that it was not until recently that the Niantic team managed to completely develop the traits of the character, making them confident to now release such into the wild.

The same can be said for the Nearby Tracker system of "Pokemon Go," which was confirmed to have been limited only to some areas in the United States. A new code implies that after a minimum number of Pokemon are found, the tracker will then conceal the sightings instead. Another feature that could possibly still be in the works, fans may have more reason to suspect on what else the company could be keeping behind the curtains. Recently rumored as well are the potential Shiny Pokemon, which at this point is still to be given concrete information.

Not everything about "Pokemon Go" is being kept behind closed doors, as the official site announced how they are to reciprocate the fans' loyalty to the franchise. A doubling of the XP and Stardust was confirmed for over a week, acquired through the completion of in-game actions alike. As it was speculated upon in the past that there will indeed be some sort of update for Thanksgiving, fans are somewhat adamant that the company will launch more content in time such as Generation 2. This, however, is still left as rumor and speculation at this point.

Is Niantic painting an even bigger picture for "Pokemon Go?" Let us know your thoughts on the comments section below.
