Subject of the week | What software update developed in the past year were you the most excited about?
That version updated the gym system and introduced the raid system, which is basically their lifeline at the moment. The gym update made it easier and less time consuming to play with gyms and the raid system encouraged more collaborative gameplay. The raid system forced people to actually talk to each other. So it basically either made you feel like less of a nerd or at home among a bunch of other nerds!
It does a check every 2-5 minutes, and bases how far you go off of that.
