The afternoons are no longer 95°, so now the need for air conditioning goes away.
In a brilliant Marketing move, Niantic is making the app available in many more countries, including in Subsaharan Africa. So now you can catch zubats on the Serengeti plain with wildebeests in the picture.

Aiming advice if anyone is playing. If you read “advice” to turn off Augmented reality because of battery drain, that is really bad advice.

Ooh, the app update just arrived with bonuses for achievement medals and Pokégym changes
