Nearly two months after release, Pokemon Let’s Go is getting its first update. Whilst not officially confirmed, the update is expected in January.

Update: Pokemon Let’s Go 1.0.1 update is available now!


Let’s Go Update

The first patch for Pokemon Let’s Go, also being referred to as update 1.1, was first reported by serebii.net. The date of patch 1.1 is yet to be confirmed but is scheduled for late January.

The patch focuses on bugs and fixes. This is opposed to new content or even the introduction of new features.


Patch 1.1 Changes

The one confirmed change for 1.1, at least according to serbeii.net, will fix an in game error which causes Pokemon not to register in the Pokedex if received from Mystery Gift.

Another requested change is a quick dismount feature. Currently, in order to dismount a flying Pokemon, you need to select another one of your Pokemon to follow you. This is simple when you know how to do it but nonetheless a longer process than it should be.

Perhaps the most obvious fix required is when thrown Pokemon balls go in the opposite direction. The cause or reasoning of this is unknown but doesn’t appear to be intentional.


An additional change that would be welcomed by all Pokemon Let’s Go players, would be the ability to use more than one candy at a time. If you have saved up a lot of candies, it takes an unnecessary amount of time to use them all.

Dismounting a flying Pokemon in Let’s Go is harder than it should be…

Pro Controller Support

A lot of feedback regarding Pokemon Let’s Go revolves around the ease at which you can control the game. Due to the requirement to have the Poke Ball Plus as a controller, some processes within the game, take longer than they need to. Therefore, compatibility with a Nintendo Switch Pro Controller would streamline the game.

Nintendo Announcement

Assuming these reports are true, we can expect an announcement from Nintendo themselves in the coming weeks. To clarify, the above suggestions are logical changes and have by no means been announced or even hinted at.


If you want these changes in Pokemon Let’s Go then let Nintendo know! In the meantime we’ll keep you updated on our Pokemon Twitter page.


Pokemon Go Autumn event – Start time, new Gen 5 Pokemon, bonuses, more

To celebrate the change of season, Niantic is hosting an autumn-themed Pokemon Go event. A new Gen 5 Pokemon will be introduced as well as other bonuses.

The 2020 Pokemon Go autumn event starts on Friday, October 9, 8 am PDT and finishes on Monday, October 12, 1 pm PDT. That’s an 11 am EDT start for those on the east coast of the US and 4 pm BST for those residing in the UK.


To the surprise of nobody, the event will feature various fall-themed Pokemon. These ‘mons can be found in the wild and in eggs when you hatch them.

Double effective Berries

Elsewhere, autumn is the time harvest and that seemingly applies to Pokemon Go, too. As a result, Berries can be found more often when spinning PokeStops. There will also be berry-themed Field and Timed Research.


During the event, all Berries will be twice as effective when giving them to your Buddy Pokemon as treats. Perhaps more excitingly, however, is that Pinap Berries will also become doubly as effective.

This means that instead of just double Candy when capturing a Pokemon, you’ll actually get four times the amount! Other Berries such as the Razz variety won’t be doubly as effective, though.

Autumn-themed Pokemon

Meanwhile, the following Pokemon will be appearing more frequently in the wild:

  • Oddish
  • Vulpix
  • Bayleef
  • Hoothoot
  • Sudowoodo
  • Yanma
  • Pineco
  • Zigzagoon
  • Seedot
  • Shroomish
  • Plant Cloak Burmy
  • Foongus

Others will be appearing in 5km eggs but those Pokemon weren’t released in the Pokemon Go blog post.

Additionally, Shiny Vulpix will be spawning more often. The ever-popular Fox Pokemon has already had its Shiny form released previously but few trainers will want to miss out on the chance to get another or even their first!

Deerling Pokemon Go
Deerling changes color depending on what seasonal form it is…


As is very apt for the change of season, Deerling will be introduced to the world of Pokemon Go for the first time. The Season Pokemon has four forms – Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter – so expect to come across its autumn variant.


It evolves into Sawsbuck, which has the same four forms, also. Deerling needs 50 Candy to evolve, so if you want to get Sawsbuck during the event you’ll need to catch as many Deerling as possible. When using a Pinap Berry though, you’ll only need to catch five of them!

There’s plenty to look forward to in Pokemon Go during October. Charmander is coming to a Community Day a second time with the exclusive move Dragon Breath and there is even a surprise Raid Boss to look forward to at the end of the month.
