After the Latest Update, I’ve Nearly Stopped Playing ‘Pokemon Go’ Altogether

Pokémon GO By: Niantic, Inc. (Nintendo) I admit I was already getting bored of Pokemon Go, considering I spent the first few weeks walking around for hours a day, caught over 2000 Pokemon and filled my Pokedex with over 100 different species.

Tracking in ‘Pokemon GO’ is Currently Broken

Pokémon GO By: Niantic, Inc. (Nintendo) I explained in my walkthrough guide last week how to use the "Nearby" list in Pokemon Go to track Pokemon.
