Hello coaches! 0.209.0 is currently being deployed on a device near you! To remind everyone, Niantic has regained the obfuscation with a vengeance, a lot of things were hidden again, but there are some interesting things that were discovered.
You can read the breakdown of the original PokéMiners here. Go give them a positive vote! By now you know the drill, everything in this article is data-minded and therefore subject to change or not even published. You’ll also see a running theme as we go along, that much of this seems unfinished.
New movement … visual effects?
Visual effects for the Fairy Wind fast move and Fiery Dance charge move have been added. The interesting thing is that Fiery Dance is Volcarona’s exclusive move. Fiery Dance has a 50% chance to increase the user’s attack in the main series games, while Fairy Wind has no side effects.
NOTE: These moves are not in the game yet, only the visual effects have been added. So we’re at least another game update and a Game Master update far from seeing them, and a Volcarona release for Fiery Dance.

This is probably a way to update the way shadows are handled.
Changes in weather warnings

Live! Not live
There are now 2 separate download locations for the assets, probably so they can test things out in-game without pushing it to the rest of us.

They removed the “stay active until the next global challenge begins.” part from the end.
Rocket Radar Graphics Correction
The rocket radar is fixed, no more white squares!
And now the random stuff
Why are your raid passes missing?
Better label instructions?
More battery saving options?
Alternative texts for the End User License Agreement
This is used to get evolutions from the game master file.
That’s it for now, coaches, stay safe!
