Pokemon Go’s Nearby feature recently launched in the UK, and will expand to new territories in the coming days and weeks.
“We will be expanding the Nearby Pokémon feature to the rest of the continental United States and large parts of Europe,” reads a Niantic post.
“We will continue to review the feedback submitted on our official social media accounts and in other channels and make changes if necessary.”
The Nearby feature makes it easier to find Pokemon out in the wild.
The Nearby function makes its debut ahead of the rumoured Christmas event, which is expected to increase the spawn rates of certain Pokemon.
Niantic has, however, revealed a workaround for anybody experiencing issues with the loading bug.
“Trainers, there is a known bug causing delayed loading,” reads a Niantic tweet. “We are working on a fix. As a workaround, you can restart the app in order to play.”
The Pokemon Go team has certainly been busy releasing lots of new updates and events lately.
To celebrate the launch of the new feature, Niantic has released even more Pokemon and items into the wild.
This follows the recently launched Pokemon Go Halloween update, which introduced various bonuses and upped the spawn rate of certain Pokemon.
But even more exciting was the release of Ditto into the Pokemon Go gaming app.
Ditto is an unusual Pokemon in that it takes the form of a different Pokemon and only reveals itself after you’ve made the catch.
