Niantic has rolled out a new update for Pokemon GO. Your app should now be version 0.63.1 on Android devices and version 1.33.1 on iOS. The update doesn’t bring much new, other than language support for Brazilian Portuguese. There’s still no Pokemon trading or PvP battles in sight as far as the patch notes go, unfortunately.
A new Pokemon GO update is now live. If you’ve used the app lately, you’ve probably already got it. On the surface level, very little seems to have been added. The patch notes for version 1.33.1 / 0.63.1 (iOS and Android version, respectively) reveal that they’ve added language support for Brazilian Portuguese. Also, you can now tap on a medal and see your progress towards the next one. Here’s the official update announcement from the Pokemon GO website.
Pokémon GO is in the process of being updated to version 0.63.1 for Android and 1.33.1 for iOS devices. Below are some release notes and comments from our development team.
- Added Brazilian Portuguese language support.
- Tapping on a medal will now show your progress toward the next medal tier.

Slightly disappointingly, that seems to be all. There’s no hint of the much-desired new features. Trainers will have to keep patiently waiting for Pokemon trading, PvP battles, and other things we’re looking forward to. It appears that there’s some code added that will mess up gym battles for cheaters, but that’s all we know for now.
Of course, it’s tradition at this point for Niantic to post vague patch notes and dataminers to sift through and find hidden files that hint at much bigger things to come. That might turn out to be true for this one, as well. Perhaps the update actually contains the seeds of bigger things to come. We’ll be sure to keep you posted once more information becomes available.
