More updates to Pokémon GO as this game goes forward! Glad to see that the Pokémon GO team are committed to updating and keeping the player base happy.
The first update announced was the "Capture Bonus" update. As the game sits right now capturing your 352nd pidgey with a cp of 244 is actually far more difficult as catching your first couple. This is all about to change as now you will earn medals as you catch specific types of Pokémon. At bronze you will get a +1 to capture rate of that type, silver +2 and gold +3. For example if you manage to catch 200 pidgeys they are a normal/flying type it will award you with a gold medal in both normal and flying. This means that any
Pokémon with either of those types will now have an average of their types added to the capture rate. It will come in very handy when catching those pesky dragonites that try to run.

Second update announced was the "Training" update. Gym training has always been a pain... it would take 20-30 minutes just to make space for your Pokémon. Only to have someone bring down the whole gym in less than 20 minutes. They have now made it much easier to train by bringing up to 6 pokemon to the battle instead of only having 1.
