Pokemon GO January Update 0.53.1 Android & 1.23.1 iOS Live!

pokemon go january update

It feels like ages since the last Pokemon GO update has hit the Play and App stores, after we got used to bi-monthly updates since the game’s launch.

Today, Niantic finally announced the latest Pokemon GO January update, but it doesn’t bring anything revolutionary to the game – at least not on the surface. Certainly not anything that we discussed in this post.

Official announcement –


Pokémon GO is in the process of being updated to version 0.53.1 for Android and 1.23.1 for iOS devices. Below are some release notes and comments from our development team.

Updated Apple Watch to display Eggs obtained from PokéStops

Changed distance tracking to better account for GPS drift

Minor text fixes.”

These minor additions and fixes are a bit of a disappointment, considering the length of radio silence on Pokemon GO in the last month.

We will, as always, have a closer look at the new game code and try to figure out if there’s anything hidden that may shed light on future updates.

When do you expect to see Gen 1's Legendary Pokemon?
