Latest Pokémon Go Update Improves Plus Functionality, Adds Notification Filters

about X hours ago from

Although it's hard to find due to its massive popularity, the Pokémon Go Plus accessory could use some work. It doesn't notify you of Pokémon you haven't seen before, and it can sometimes be difficult to catch more rare Pokémon you've already seen, since the device doesn't do a great job of distinguishing PokéStops from Pokémon, or Dragonites from Pidgeys.

The latest update to Pokémon Go doesn't fix all these issues, but it makes it easier to stratify what you're running around for. After this update, Pokémon Go Plus users will be able to specify whether they want to receive notifications for only Pokémon, PokéStops, or both. This means that if you're only interested in loading up on Pokéballs during your morning jog, you can make it so all the Rattatas that would usually pop up will now fly under your radar.

The update also improves the connection to the Plus by making sure the device stays connected even after entering the Pokémon encounter state, or while interacting with gyms.

Players can expect a full single-player adventure with 400 levels, 200 collectible character cards, and 20 heroes that pull from other games in the Plants Vs. Zombies franchise. Heroes also has a ranked online multiplayer mode that allows players to fight each other with their custom decks. Although this is the first Plants Vs. Zombies game with cards, the original Plants Vs. Zombies began as a card game too.

“Plants vs. Zombies Heroes started a few years ago as a paper card game prototype and a fun way for our team to enjoy playing with their favorite PvZ characters in their spare time,” said Senior Producer, Brian Lindley. “Since then it has evolved into a hilarious, crazy, over-the-top collectible card game that’s fun for everyone but packed with depth, secrets and strategy. We can’t wait for our fans to start playing.”
