It has been a couple weeks since the last patch was released for Pokémon GO, but it seems as though the latest patch is coming. Niantic released a statement today about some of the patch notes that will be in the upcoming patch and it seems like there will be some big things in the works.
Here is the statement from Niantic about what the patch will entail. They have not released all of the notes, but these are some pretty big ones:
Pokémon GO is in the process of being updated to version 0.35.0 for Android and 1.5.0 for iOS devices. Below are some release notes and comments from our development team.
– Implemented Pokémon Appraisal: Trainers will now be able to learn about a Pokémon’s attack and defense capabilities from their Team Leader (Candela, Blanche or Spark) to determine which of their Pokémon have the most potential for battle.
– We are still working hard on several new and exciting features to come in the future of Pokémon GO.
– Minor bot fixes

With Niantic gunning for another patch, it will be interesting to see these news gym and Pokémon attack/defense capabilities in action. Minor bot fixes is extremely vague so we hope to learn more about it.
