Latest Pokemon Go Update Adds Free Wardrobe Item, Bug Fixes, and More
When last we spoke of the augmented reality game Pokemon Go, Niantic had reintroduced some extremely helpful Raid Eggs to the rejoice of fans everywhere. It seems the developer’s giving streak continues with the latest Pokemon Go update, which includes a new t-shirt for players to customize their avatar.
Niantic has offered the complimentary avatar item in a partnership with Global Goals for Sustainable Development, a charitable organization that aims to end extreme poverty, inequality, and climate change worldwide. Trainers can show their support of the initiative by wearing the Global Goals branded shirt within the game. Seventeen themed PokeStops have also gone live for Pokemon Go, each of them representing and spreading awareness of the organization’s individual goals. “This free shirt gives you and the millions of Trainers around the world the opportunity to stand with us as we look to show our support for initiatives that make the world a better place like the Global Goals,” Niantic wrote about the partnership on their website. Along with the free wardrobe item, the Pokemon Go update also fixes a number of bugs for both iOS and Android versions of the mobile title. A full list of patch notes can be read below.
