This Pokemon Go update indeed has decent features. Pokemon trainers will be able to transfer multiple Pokemon at a time to Professor Willow, We were waiting for this feature since the beginning! All you gotta do is, press and hold on a Pokemon and it’ll be select!
The second feature is pretty good as well, all Pokemon type icons are added to Gym Battle approach and on Gym Battle Screen, so it’ll be a lot easier for you to select a better type Pokemon versus Gym Pokemon.
Total Candy Count for your buddy Pokemon has been added to the buddy Pokemon information screen, so you can see how many candies you earned with your Buddy Pokemon, this is nothing big, but I guess it’s a decent feature as well!
We were actually asking for this feature from Niantic, Total Kilometers your Buddy has walked has been added to the information screen as well for each and every single Pokemon that has ever been your Buddy.
