Hello coaches! Some text updates have been sent out and they include some pretty impressive quality of life updates that I’m sure you will be excited about. There isn’t much, but what’s here is pretty exciting. Legendary and mythical dough transfers and egg transparency.

Legendary and mythical bulk transfers
RESOURCE ID: pokemon_transfer_legendary_confirmation TEXT: Your selection contains Legendary or Mythical Pokémon! Are you sure you want to transfer the selected Pokémon?
Could be?! Do we have the ability to mass transfer legendary and mythical Pokémon? Mystery Box owners rejoice! No more Meltan transfers one at a time!
Enable it in Settings
RESOURCE ID: settings_select_legendary_label TEXT: Transfer Legendary and Mythical Pokémon When Selecting Pokémon RESOURCE ID: settings_select_legendary_tip TEXT: Allows you to transfer Legendary Pokémon and certain Mythical Pokémon when selecting multiple Pokémon at once in your collection. RESOURCE ID: settings_legendary_multi_selection_confirmation_description TEXT: Enabling this setting will allow you to transfer Legendary Pokémon and certain Mythical Pokémon when selecting multiple Pokémon at once in your collection. Transferring Pokémon to Professor Willow cannot be undone. RESOURCE ID: settings_legendary_multi_selection_confirmation_title TEXT: Are you sure you want to be able to transfer Legendary and Mythical Pokémon when selecting multiple Pokémon?
It looks like this will have to be enabled in settings, which is good. It also seems like it will warn you twice before enabling it, which is good too. It seems like they’re really trying to make sure Trainers don’t accidentally transfer their legendaries.
RESOURCE ID: egg_transparency_available_pokemon TEXT: Available Pokémon
It looks like we are going to get some transparency about what hatches from the eggs. There is not much to do at the moment, but there are a couple of ways you can implement it. They could put it in today’s section or my personal hope they do so so that we can press an egg and have it show which Pokemon can hatch from that specific egg based on when it was collected.

RESOURCE ID: poseidon_passcode_title TEXT: Please enter activation code
Pokéminers believed that Poseidon had to do with some additions to the game, but scanning activation codes doesn’t quite fit that theory … so we’ll have to see what this is.
The North Face x Gucci

Texts for The North Face x Gucci clothing were also submitted, they are now live in game and available via a code that you can redeem in the game store on Android or via the Niantic Rewards link. here. Just use the code: GXSD5CJ556NHG
Being able to transfer Mythical and Legendary Pokémon in droves is huge! Especially for those of us who use Meltan boxes on a regular basis, transferring those little critters one at a time is excruciatingly painful.
What do you think about the transparency potential of the egg? I hope it is more in line with my graphic presentations, and not just a “This is what is available now” on the Today tab. We will have to see.
That’s it for now, coaches, stay safe!
