  • Novel Pokemon Go Update deletes Two Features

The novel Pokemon Go update has managed to delete two features. These are the battery saving mode and footprint tracking facility.

Pokemon Go has come up with the first update and it is rocking the place up. Besides Pokemon, places where they are to be spotted and the bugs and glitches that need to be fixed, there are other issues.

The footprint tracking system is being wiped off the slate. What is left behind in its place is a wishy washy list of Pokemon. Also the battery saving mode was done away with, according to Engadget

Now players will have to turn the glow factor of their screens way down as well as carry an extra battery or two. There are a range of tiny changes as well that figure in the mix. Some of these are commonsensical since they allow for a modicum of respect for barriers and borders.

The selection of your favorite monsters is an individual act yet care will have to be taken that they are not posted to someone else in the process. All fans and aficionados of Pokemon Go are definitely having to put up with a lot in recent times. 

The scourge of problems which have laid siege to Pokemon Go are indeed something which could end up harming the consumer base that is crazy about the game.

Servers are down, bugs have infested the game platform and crashes are commonplace stuff. All these have become the order of the day. Niantic is bearing the brunt of this burden and it is the current scapegoat for the players.

As for the tracking system for gauging footprints, it is in a state of disarray. The removal of several icons from the platform of the game is a source of depression for the players. 

Many players don’t know what to do in such a state where they are left virtually high and dry. They cannot track down their targets since the facilities that eased the way are now missing.

Especially, the battery issue has the players turning down the screen brightness of their devices. They are also now being requested to carry an extra power pack in case their batteries peter out during the forays in the outer environment.
