Niantic has rolled out a new update for Pokémon GO on Android, bringing the game up to Version 1.109.0/0.141.0. This update offers bug fixes, including the ability to trash Premium Raid Passes. Unfortunately, this update also introduces a new bug, which completely breaks friend lists. Another update is likely to roll out quite soon to fix this issue.

Junichi Masuda wasn't the only big-name Pokemon-related person who visited Singapore this weekend. Fans noticed that none other than Pokemon Co. president Tsunekazu Ishihara had dropped in on the Pokemon GO Safari Zone Sentosa event. He was spotted with his phone in-hand, so it looks like he was not only checking in for work purposes, but having some fun with Pokemon GO as well!
The first official Pokemon GO Safari Zone event in Singapore is a huge hit! It's estimated that 100k people will attend the event throughout its 5-day run. As you can see in the footage above, there are plenty of fans eager to check things out and get in on some great Pokemon catching!
Pokemon Center Singapore at Changi Airport opened just a few days ago, and now regular business is being conducted. There are plenty of people who are eager to pop into the store and see how things are, and none other than Junichi Masuda might be one of them.
Masuda recently shared a tweet showing that he was taking a flight to Singapore, but he didn't specifically say why. It's pretty likely Masuda will at least poke his head into the store to give it a quick look, but it's not like that's the only Pokemon-related event taking place in Singapore. The Pokemon GO Safari Zone Sentosa is also running this week, which could also be a destination for Masuda.
The Pokemon GO Safari Zone event is hitting Singapore this weekend, but the whole world is getting in on some of the fun! Running April 20th at 6 AM to April 21st at 10 PM, Shuckle will be spawning in-game. On top of that, there should be some Shiny Shuckle running about, so good luck on tracking one down!
- General (event access from 11am-7pm) – $25
