Pokemon Go Map Updates, Global Map Refresh

Trainers, Niantic and Pokemon Go will be making some changes to the in-game map over the next few weeks and the Pokemon Go map will undergo a visual refresh to more accurately reflect the real world and how it’s changed since the last update.

Niantic and Pokemon Go announced that they will be making changes to the in-game map and different Pokemon will appear in even more places than before.

Here is the official announcement, thanks to Pokemon Go:

“Trainers,

It’s been three years since our last map update. Since then, both Pokemon GO and the world around us have changed.

To continue bringing you an experience that connects your exploration of the world around you with what you see in Pokemon GO, you may notice some changes to the in-game map over the next few weeks. The map will more accurately reflect the environment, and different Pokemon will appear in a greater variety of places.

These updates are intended to bring the world of Pokemon GO closer to what you see around you.

Global map refresh

The Pokemon GO map will undergo a visual refresh to more accurately reflect the real world and how it’s changed since our last update. After this update, you may begin to see local changes from recent years appear on the map. This may include the removal of old roads or the appearance of newly constructed buildings.

Pokemon will appear in more areas

Soon, different Pokemon will appear in even more places than before. In densely populated areas, this could mean that you’ll see the same numbers of Pokemon as before, but they’ll be spread out more evenly. You may also see Pokemon appear in different locations. For Trainers in rural or rapidly expanding areas, this may also increase the number of Pokemon that appear overall.

Thank you for continuing to play Pokemon GO! We hope that these updates will make your adventures more exciting.”

What are your expectations? What changes would you like to see?
