Pokemon Go 0.165.0 Update Brings New Content, Lots of Changes, and Bug Fixes

Pokemon Go has been out for a while, but the title continues to be played by millions of people from all over the world.

The exciting title allows players to become Pokemon Trainers and grow their own collection as they travel across their city or village and explore new locations. Some Pokemon types tend to be more abundant in specific areas. For example, the chances to find a water-type Pokemon will be higher if the players visit an area where a river or a lake is present.

One of the keys that contributed to the popularity of the title is a constant stream of patches that added new content and improved the gameplay experience for players.
