The latest Pokémon GO update has added the ability to transfer more than one Pokémon at once to be ground up into candy.
The latest update comes ahead of Monday’s announcement of new Pokémon.
Niantic released these notes:
Pokémon GO is in the process of being updated to version 0.49.1 for Android and 1.19.1 for iOS devices. Below are some release notes and comments from our development team.
- Trainers will be able to transfer multiple Pokémon at a time to Professor Willow. To use this function, press and hold on a Pokémon.
- Pokémon type icons have been added to the Gym battle approach and Gym battle screen.
- The total Candy count for your Buddy Pokémon has been added to the buddy information screen.
- The total kilometers a buddy has walked has been added to the information screen of each Pokémon that has ever been your buddy.
- Minor text fixes.
I’ve been impressed with Pokémon GO’s relentlessness. It just won’t seem to die, no matter how hard people hate on it. If nothing else, that deserves some commendation.
