It has been more than the three weeks since the launch of Pokemon Go in some of the selected countries, and the hype isn’t over yet. The augmented reality game has been trending on the internet this entire month and has more than 35 million active users at the moment.

The game has been released in the US, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and most of Europe as well as Japan, and millions of players are wandering around trying to find Pokemon and capture them.

However, players are not fully satisfied with the game yet. They want some more features like trading Pokemon or the chance to battle with friends to be added to the game.

To much delight of the fans, a lot of things are lined up to be added to Pokemon Go in the upcoming months. Niantic’s CEO himself confirmed that only 10% of the planned content has so far made it into the game.

Here are some of the features we currently know of that will soon be added to the game:

The three teams of Pokemon Go are – Team Valor, Team Mystic and Team Instinct. They now have their own leaders, who are Candela (Valor), Blanche (Mystic) and Spark (Instinct).

The three leaders of the respective teams are being added to the game to advise players while playing the game. While speaking about the team leaders at San Diego Comic Con, John Hanke, CEO of Pokemon Go developer Niantic, said, “You’ll be hearing from them in a variety of ways.”

More Easter Eggs


The Niantic CEO also confirmed the Eeeve evolution Easter Egg during the Pokemon Go presentation at SDCC. He added that there are some Easter Eggs that haven’t been discovered by the fans yet.

Now the fans are speculating on a lot of things that could be potential Easter Eggs. A lot of players think that even Ditto is an Easter Egg in Pokemon Go. The search for Easter Eggs have become rigorous now.

There’s is only one way to track Pokemon in Pokemon Go at this moment, and it’s by using the ‘nearby’ tab in the bottom right corner of your screen. Apart from that, there is no other way to find out in which direction the Pokemon are in relation to your current location.

However, some improvised Pokemon tracking tools might be on the way in the game. The trailer of Pokemon Go last year showed a complex tracking system compared to the present one the game.

You surely have a lot of duplicate Pokemon at this point, and are not sure what to do with them. Once the Pokemon trading option comes to Pokemon Go, this will be a subject of less worry. You would be able to trade your duplicate Pokemon with your friends in return of a Pokemon you don’t possess.

Niantic has already mentioned that trading has always been a ‘core element’ of the Pokemon game franchise, and we hope to see this feature added in an up coming update. This feature might be able to help players get some region specific Pokemon without venturing outside of their current locations too much.
