Another Pokemon Go datamine has revealed that Adventure Sync might be adding an important new feature soon.
Chrales, a known dataminer within the Pokemon community, has revealed another potential addition to Pokemon Go. This time it's an addition to Adventure Sync.
Up until now Adventure Sync would track steps, enabling you to hatch eggs, earn buddy candy and weekly rewards. Chrales' datamine suggests a new awareness feature will be added which will alert you when new Pokemon are nearby.
new feature of Adventure Sync : "awareness"— Chrales (@Chrales) March 19, 2019
"Now Adventure Sync can notify you about nearby new Pokémon!"
"Adventure Sync can find nearby new Pokémon even while Pokémon GO is closed!"
The "new" Pokemon is an important distinction because Adventure Sync alerting you for previously seen Pokemon would become annoying and not helpful. Only doing so for new Pokemon will help players complete their Pokedex.
Much like Chrales' other recent datamine for the a new lucky friends feature, its existence within the code doesn't mean it will definitely be added.
While most datamines do eventually appear in some shape or form, there are a number that don't.
