Pokemon Go has surprisingly complex mechanics that are not explained officially, but discovered by Pokemon Go nerds.
The interest in Pokemon Go has certainly slowed down, but there are still a huge community playing the game. There is more to the eye than catching Pokemon, hatching eggs and Gym battles. Trainers can go down the rabbit hole and try to understand the Pokemon Go in game mechanics. There is the aspect of where which Pokemon spawn. The Silph Road Nest Atlas is at the core of this research area.

Then there is a whole science around Gym battles. The recently discovered Bubblestrat method is an example of a complex procedure with a huge up side. With Bubblestrat, trainers can get a Gym to level 10 and earn 1.5 million XP per day holding it. GamePress' Pokemon Go resource has the details on which Pokemon with which IV levels can be used for Bubblestrat.
A new Pokemon Go app release is expected to be released today or tomorrow with a new cool feature. Pokemon Buddy will be the biggest update after the appraisal feature. Most trainers though still wait for the nearby Pokemon tracker feature.
Lastly there is the Pokemon Go Capture Rate. When you try to capture a wild Pokemon, you can do some math to increase your chances in capturing it. Knowing the capture rate helps you pick the right PokeBall and if you should use a raspberry or not. The color of the ring when you target a Pokemon is actually an indicator for capture rate.
Trainer Tips has just released a tutorial video on Pokemon Go Capture rate. As always Nick is explaining this aspect of Pokemon Go in an easy to understand way. The video also includes a police raid, but really it is mostly about Pokemon Go Capture rate.
Besides obvious health benefits, Pokemon Go is great for your math skills, if you want to go there.
