It seems that every time Niantic develops an update for their word-wide craze Pokemon Go, something goes wrong. There’s been many glitches so far that have been found by players, but at least some of them turn out to be funny. After the most recent update to the game, Pokemon Go fans have found that a certain glitch will turn a Pokeball into a Rattata! Check out the video below to see how this crazy glitch looks. It even seems that Rattata is trying to take an innocent munch on the Pokemon that the player is trying so hard to catch.
Pokemon Go has been making a serious footprint in the gaming world so far – commercially, and with the amount of users downloading the app and playing the game. Pokemon Go has generated well over $160 million globally since its inception and that was even before the release of the app in recent major countries such as Brazil and China. Usage of the app is still at a major high as well with millions of downloads across the world.
Even though the new Pokemon Go update has suffered the brief, yet hilarious hiccup that we have shown you above, it still includes some interesting developments. Most importantly, the game has been updated with a location tracking system. This has long since been a supposed feature in the game and now it has finally become available. The new system – albeit in a sort of testing phase – does what it says on the tin: it tracks your movement based on your location and alerts you to certain Pokemon that are nearby. However, it doesn’t make it too easy by letting you know which direction you need to travel, though.
Other interesting new changes include the ability to change the name of your character one more time, improved accuracy in using a curve ball, fixed medal icons, added dialog, improved graphics and the ability to switch on a battery saver option while playing the game, which is a feature that was sorely missed when it was taken out.
It’s clear that Pokemon Go is here to stay and it looks like Niantic knows exactly what to do with their regular updates., even if it means a few funny glitches in the process.
