Time to Reinstall—the Pokémon GO Update Has Arrived

Are you one of the good folks of this world still playing Pokémon GO? And if you’re not, have you heard about the update…and is it tempting you to reinstall the app?

Niantic revealed what is perhaps the largest update to the app since its launch. Gyms are being completely revamped, Raid Battles added as well as new items.

The update will be released in stages over the coming weeks, but it has already begun—noted by Niantic’s post listing its full patch notes. Depending on whether you’re on Android or iOS, your update will become version 0.67.1 or 1.37.1.

Take a look at the notes and decide for yourself… are you back in?
