Even though there has been some negative news to report out of the Pokemon Go world, Niantic Labs still has a bonafide hit on its hands. The founder of the mobile development company teased during a panel at Comic-Con that the app is going to actively get better and include more and more monsters. The hope is that these hints - and the subsequent changes - will keep people playing for a long time.

To begin, they will continually add more and more Pokemon to the game, though it does sound like not every single Pokemon ever created will end up in the game.

"Beyond first generation [the original 150], there are some others that may make their way into our universe. We're looking forward to finding interesting ways to make that happen in the coming months and years." 

The CEO also said that there will be developments within the game as well, which is where they will likely keep more and more players (and make more and more money). There will be a trading aspect to the game, similar to the original Pokemon cards. They will also add to the training features, hopefully making it so that you don't have to go all the way to a gym to train.

Hanke also said that they were interested in adding to Pokestops as well. Their idea is to create things like lures that will bring people together when they play. One idea may be a healing Pokecenter that could feature the Nurse Joy character. "That's a pretty cool idea that you can acquire an object that changes the function of a pokéstop and give it a new ability." 

Let's hope we are all still playing when these updates come.
