Pokémon GO APK Mine

Hello coaches! Pokémon GO 0.191.0 is rolling out slowly and some text updates have been shipped as well. This update has a lot of support for Pokémon Home, some PvP quality of life updates, and just in time for Halloween… XL Rare Candy.

Oh, and I also think of Generation 6 … …

UNDEFINED_POKEMON_HOME_EVENT

Energy Cost is how Niantic will implement the cooldown on how many Pokémon you can transfer to Pokémon Home, and each Pokémon will have its own Energy Cost. So some will cost more to transfer than others.

Does it look like we might also have an event related to its launch?

Error codes

ERROR_PLAYER_LEVEL_TOO_LOW 
ERROR_PLAYER_NOT_USING_PH_APP
ERROR_POKEMON_IS_MEGA 
ERROR_POKEMON_FAVORITED
ERROR_POKEMON_HAS_COSTUME 
ERROR_POKEMON_IS_SHADOW 
ERROR_POKEMON_DISALLOWED

There are more codes, but I chose the most relevant ones. It seems that we will not be able to transfer Pokémon that are Mega Evolved, Favorite, that have a costume or Shadow Pokémon. It also appears that there will be a minimum level requirement for transferring to Pokémon Home.

Pay to reduce cooldown

IAP_CATEGORY__ENERGY

This is likely a signal to use coins to reduce cooldown by purchasing more energy.

Error messages, a flag that warns you if you try to transfer a Pokémon that you cannot catch again in Pokémon Go such as Mew or Celebi.

Also, a message that Pokémon sent to Home will not be able to travel with you to certain games. It probably just means that you can’t bring Pokémon into games they can’t transfer to anymore, but we’ll have to see.

Cool down

More support for the level-up missions Niantic has said is coming, looks like it will be in the form of special research. I’m not sure if we’ll have to do special research for each level, or just to unlock levels 41-50 and then smaller missions per level. Either way, putting something different on the levels in addition to the experience is a welcome change and something to look forward to.

Lots of new details on where and how Pokémon are caught. Did you catch the Mega Ex raids there? Niantic announced this was coming, but it is not live yet. They also indicated that these details would not apply retroactively to Pokémon you’ve already caught.

Battle selection screen

Long-pressing a Pokémon on the battle select screen will display the Pokémon’s moves, types, and HP.

Battle exchanges

In battle, you will now see icons of your available Pokémon on the right side, making it much easier to switch to other Pokémon.

Pokédex Search

When looking at an entry in the Pokédex, at the bottom of the screen there is an option to see all the Pokémon you have.

Pokémon Menu

You can also quickly access a Pokémon’s Pokédex entry from the individual Pokémon menu in your Pokébox.

RESOURCE ID: pokemon_inventory_select_all

More text to support saving search strings that were discovered earlier, and a reference to a Select All button, which would be great.

RESOURCE ID: filter_key_research

RESOURCE ID: filter_key_rocket 
TEXT: rocket

New Pokébox search filters.

I was able to get several of these filters to work, but they didn’t mention everything.

“Snapshot” only mentioned the last Pokémon I got from an instant encounter, no Smergle, and “Raid” only mentioned the Pokémon I caught in raids since early October. Some of the others were unstable as well, so take them for what they are for now. This probably has something to do with the new details that are added to captured Pokémon that do not apply to the ones you’ve already captured.

Conclusions and speculations

Phew! That was a lot! New searches, Pokémon Home integration, Gen 6 !!

It seems that the integration with Pokémon Home is very close, with the assets that were released the other day and all the new details included in this update. For my part, I am excited to be able to transfer some Pokémon that I have been accumulating from my Go Pokébox to Home. We’ll have to see how many we can do at once, but I suspect it will be a long process to get everything I want transferred. I wonder if there will be a higher cost for shiny Pokémon.

Also, Gen 6 !! Our first look at the Pokémon in the Kalos region! Which of the Gen 6 Pokémon are you most excited about? It has to be Hoopa for me.

That’s it for now, I say as if that’s not enough for one article. ha …

Stay safe, trainers!
