As we can all tell by now, the 8th didn’t bring any new Pokemon. A little disappointing yes, but I suppose that’s what happens when confidential information gets leaked. It is also possible that Niantic just wasn’t ready.
The reason why I say this. It seems like Niantic’s servers are facing a bit of latency problems. When selecting the Pokedex or scrolling too fast in your Pokemon bag, not all of them will show up. Their servers would be crashing left and right if more Pokemon were introduced.
Along with the new update came a fairly necessary feature if you asked me.This feature allows for trainers to mass transfer Pokemon to professor Willow. For some, it may not be a bit deal. When you have hundreds of Pokemon just waiting to be transferred, only put off because of the invested time needed. A feature like this could be your new best friend.
