Pokemon GO (Free) from The Pokemon Company and Niantic initially exploded before seeming to slow down a bit. The game has continued to be popular ever since and it definitely feels like the developers are doing a good job at keeping players happy. Today, Niantic revealed plans for April and also a look at how the company will let players do more indoors given the global pandemic right now. Adventure Sync will now track house activities and there will be improvements made to have it track indoor movement better. Raid battles in Pokemon GO will be playable indoors soon as well. Niantic is also looking at letting players virtually visit and share memories from various places in the real world. Details for how Pokemon GO Fests will take place will be revealed in the future.

For April 2020, Shadow Entei will be available to save from Giovanni. There will not be a new set of Team GO Rocket Special Research next month but you will have until the end of April if you’ve not completed The Shadowy Threat Grows yet.
