Pokemon GO Updates
Pokemon GO received a massive update in June. Maybe the biggest update since Gen 2 was released. Gyms have been completely revamped. Only one of each Pokemon can be in a gym (no more 10 Vaporeons), and the Pokemon are ordered by when they were placed. A new feature called “Raids” allows people to team up to defeat “bosses” and earn rewards.
