Pokemon Go is not just one of the most popular games available on the Google Play Store, it’s also one of the most innovative ones. What makes Pokemon Go so special is the fact that it uses AR (augmented reality) technology in order to give everyone the chance to live out their childhood dream of stepping into the shoes of Ash Ketchum and catching every Pokemon that they can find in their surroundings. The great thing about Pokemon Go is that the game is always being improved via a constant stream of updates that keep the gameplay fresh and entertaining. In fact, a new update has recently started rolling out.
Pokemon Go 0.143.1 Update
If playing Pokemon Go is your favorite thing to do in your free time, then we have some amazing news to share with you. The highly popular mobile game has received a new update and it sports the 0.143.1 version number. However, this is not a regular update that comes with minor tweaks or in-game changes and instead, the update brings a handful of bug fixes that take care of serious issues which have the potential of ruining the gameplay.
First off, Pokemon Go fans who want to install the new update should make sure that they have at least 97.38MB of free internal storage space on their smartphones.
