Pokemon GO Middle East is live and latest Pokemon GO version 0.47.1 for Android and 1.17.0 for iOS is rolling out.
Here’s the official announcement –
Pokémon GO is in the process of being updated to version 0.47.1 for Android and 1.17.0 for iOS devices. Below are some release notes and comments from our development team.
- Fixed an issue where the Egg-hatching cutscene animation would sometimes be briefly visible from the map view.
- Minor text fixes”
Not the most exciting of updates, to say the least. We don’t know how big the Egg-hatching animation issue was because we never heard of anyone having that issue, but other than that Niantic haven’t really added anything new in this version. At least not something they are officially announcing.
In other news Pokemon GO is now available in eight new countries across the Middle East. These are:
- United Arab Emirates
No word on what regional Pokemon should be expected, but assuming they do get one, it will probably be Farfetch’d, according to the Regional Pokemon chart.
