Pokemon GO v0.31.0 Released for Android. Here’s What’s New in It

Starting Pokémon GO with Pikachu

Though the last release of Pokemon GO v0.29.3 said that all it had done was minor text fixes, there was a lot of stuff that they worked behind the scenes and didn’t mention in the app update.

One of those greatest works was, upscaling their servers.

As you might see now, after the release of Pokemon GO in Japan, the servers are stable, with very low downtime even after millions of fans from Japan joined and started playing the game.

The famous 3 steps bug was still there which made it hard to find nearby Pokemons.

Here’s the good:

With the release of v0.31.0 today, the famous 3 steps bug is no more!

The worse:

They fixed the 3 steps bug by completely removing the Pokemon step counts at all. So now, you can’t have any estimation of where the Pokemon is, near or far, as there are no footprint steps of Pokemon.
