Pokémon Go version 0.69.0 is now rolling out, delivering a handful of new trainer abilities, as well as some interface changes and bug fixes.

The new abilities come in three flavors: the first, and obviously most important, allows trainers to spin the Photo Disc at a Gym after completing one of the Raid Battles, while the other two relate to berry distribution.

Trainers can now send berries to Pokémon defending Gyms through the Pokémon info screen even when they aren’t nearby. Niantic notes that any motivation regained through this will, however, be less effective than through normal use. In addition, trainers can now give berries to Pokémon defending Gyms if their motivation meter is full.

Niantic has also added icons to the Pokémon information screen, so you can see how your Pokémon were caught, and has upgraded the search function in the collection menu.

Rounding off the updates are some bug fixes, including a patch for an issue whereby Pokémon were not properly returned to their trainer after defending a Gym.

Meanwhile, Pokémon Go Fest (in celebration of the game’s first anniversary) begins this Saturday in Chicago’s Grant Park — though you don’t have to be a local to get involved. Find out more about this in the previous updates section below, and download the latest version of Pokémon Go from the Play Store at the link.

Previous Updates

Pokémon Go Fest

July 7Pokémon Go is celebrating its first anniversary with the Go Fest event that will take place on Saturday, July 22, in Chicago’s Grant Park. There will be three Challenge Windows throughout the day. The trainers in Chicago will try to unlock perks for Pokémon Go players in other cities and countries by catching certain types of Pokémon, with each one being tied to a different perk.

Meanwhile, trainers across the globe will also try to catch as many Pokémon as possible during the Challenge Windows with the hope of extending the duration of the bonuses unlocked by those attending the event. If they catch enough of them, a mystery challenge will be unveiled in Grant Park that will unlock a special bonus across the globe once completed.

Additionally, Niantic has also announced a few Pokémon Safari Zone events, which will take place at shopping centers in different countries during August and September. For more details, visit here.
