Confirmed last month, the first Pokemon Let’s Go update is available to download now. The 1.0.1 patch fixes various bugs but does not include any new content.

Let’s Go 1.0.1 Patch

As per the Nintendo support site, the first Pokemon Let’s Go update focuses on fixing an issue with the mystery box. Other updates include a small change in the form of Pokemon markings as well as other gameplay fixes which remain unspecified. Full patch notes can be found below:

  • Issues Fixed
    • The issue where the Pokémon received through Mystery Gift does not get registered in the Pokédex when exiting the game without saving has been resolved.
      • If you have already received the Pokémon through Mystery Gift, put the Pokémon that is not registered in the Pokédex in the Pokémon Box and download the update data. Once this is done, the Pokémon should be reflected in the Pokédex.
  • Other Update Information
    • The Pokémon’s Markings and Judge function’s □ and ☆ orders were reversed. It has now been changed to match.
    • Various gameplay fixes.

Pokemon Let’s Go Feedback

The 1.0.1 Pokemon Let’s Go update will disappoint some fans. The Pokemon community were optimistic that this patch would bring new content and potentially even new features to the game.


However, with nothing substantial and a download size of just 33.9MB, Pokemon Let’s Go players will have to remain hopeful for those type of changes in a future update.

With a reported Pokemon Let’s Go sequel coming down the line, it might be the Pokemon Company’s strategy to leave big changes until then. Consequently, Pokemon’s first appearance on the Nintendo Switch might not receive any new content unless it’s in the form of a DLC.

Nevertheless, there is little doubt that Pokemon trainers will continue to request the more obvious changes for Let’s Go, such as:

  • A quick dismount feature
  • Poke Balls thrown in the opposite direction
  • Use more than one candy at a time
  • Nintendo Switch pro-controller support

Pokemon Go November Community Day rumors: Who will headline?

The Pokemon Go November Community Day is still a good month away, but that hasn’t stopped trainers speculating as to what the headliner could be.

November is of course the penultimate Pokemon Go Community Day of the year. It is also the last one in which Pokemon fans will try to predict the headliner.


That is because the December CD is traditionally a mega Community Day of sorts. It brings the previous headliners from that year and makes them all available in one event.

Presumably, it will be the same for 2020. It is a day in which Pokemon Go trainers of all levels do their best to make sure they don’t miss out on!


Before we get there though, we still need to find out what the 10th headliner of 2020 will be. That isn’t a typo, as there will only be 11 in total this year because March’s CD was canceled due to the global health crisis – you may have heard about it.

No vote for November?

Niantic have made it a habit of letting us decide which Pokemon headline Community Days in 2020. In fact, 5 of the 10 from 2020 have been decided via vote.

The latest two votes however, have decided the following two Community Days. With October already in place with Charmander, there is only November to decide.


While that doesn’t rule out another vote entirely, it would seemingly make it less likely November’s would be decided by one.


So, if it isn’t to be decided by us, who are the contenders. The one that first comes to mind is Snivy.

Ever since Piplup headlined in January, we haven’t had another starter, at least a new one. At the time it was expected Snivy would be the featured ‘mon for March, which would have been in line with Niantic’s pattern of alternating between starter and non-starters.


Snivy may have been delayed because the Pokemon Go developers realized they were running out of starter ‘mons to use. Of the released Pokemon in the mobile game, it is only the Gen 5 starters that haven’t headlined, although Gen 6’s introduction is expected soon. So, 10 months on from the last one, it could be time for the Unova grass-type starter.

Snivy would seemingly be the leading contender for the November CD…

Deino or Gible?

Deino and Gible are two of the more popular Pokemon in the entire franchise and have been rumored as headliners. Unfortunately, that is why either of them making an appearance may be wishful thinking.


Both are super rare spawns and putting them as a featured Pokemon for a Community Day would certainly take away from their current allure. Besides, Niantic likely knows they can rely on them to boost other events, even if they do remain rare spawn rates.

Hopefully, they will headline a Community Day at some point in the future but 2020 seems unlikely at best.

Other contenders

The other most likely candidates for November are Exeggcute and Starly. Both were previously revealed to be included in another vote which never materialized.

Bulbasaur and Magikarp were also in there but the latter has already headlined in 2020, and Bulbasaur seems an unlikely option outside of a vote.

The Pokemon Go CD will likely take place in the second half of November. The 22nd seems the most likely day as this would keep distance between the previous one and adhere to alternating Saturday and Sundays.
