  • First Pokemon Go update of 2017 improves Global Positioning System tracking, Apple Watch app

While the Pokemon GO fever has died down tremendously, there is still a sizeable base of players who would look forward to each new update release.

Despite losing interest, though, Pokemon GO was still the most successful mobile game of 2016 according to a report by App Annie 2016 Retrospective.

Ever since Niantic Labs released Pokemon GO, players all over the world have been asking or better yet, have been demanding for more details on the next generation of Pokemon.

The update, which is due to land sometime today, may just make getting all the Pokemon completely impossible. As for the total mileage accumulated by users, a video upload by Niantic last month suggests that players have covered more than 4.5 billion miles or 8.7 billion kilometers. The drift refers to the jumping around that your character makes even when you're supposedly standing still and so all that minor extra distance that you cover when "drifting" may be lessened to be fair for all those who are actually walking to hatch eggs.

Well, today, the folks at Niantic have released an update that, amongst other things, attempts to fix Global Positioning System drift so your character doesn't wander off too far anymore.

The insider added that they are not yet "that serious", but even if they were, Bella is "playing the victim card way too hard". Gomez leaves her thick, chocolate-brown tresses long and luxurious, but this sophisticated style is really working on her.

Finally, The Silph Road was able to datamine the APK of the update and discovered that Niantic has added 38 new moves to the game.

Users are flocking to Twitter to report the outage and sadly if you try to login to Pokemon Go right now, you may see the following image every time. Little moves can greatly affect Pokemon Go. The Silph Road is a Pokemon GO-themed group that goes through some rather thorough data mining efforts, and have come up with information gold this time around in the Pokemon GO 0.53.1 update.

The incredible sums are made even more impressive when you remember that Pokemon Go came out almost halfway through the year.

For one, the winter months in many parts of the world make it oftentimes hard, or even impossible for players to step outside and walk.
