Recently a Redditor named cokuspocus has dipped his hands into the source code further to find out a rather important secret that we’ve been dying to know about.
You bet, your ass it’s battling. (Duh the title) However cokuspocus finding this source code can confirm that they’ve recently added this to the game and are most likely preparing for a Live update within the next two months.
YOU SEE IN THE CODE MENTION OF A FORT, I THOUGHT INITIALLY THAT THIS WAS SIMPLY REFERRING TO GYMS, BUT THEN YOU ALSO SEE GYMS MENTIONED, EXAMPLES:
- Add_fort_modifier <- you can’t add anything to gyms except Pokémon, this is very interesting to me. Perhaps a legendary is in a fort and your team has to take it down? Idk, but be on the lookout for this.
- Fort_deploy_pokemon <- this suggests that forts will let you place Pokémon, just like with gyms.
- Fort_recall_pokemon <- this is interesting to me. You can’t manually bring Pokémon in gyms back to you, but this seems to suggest that with forts, you can.
- Start_gym_battle <- this is gym battling, mentioned specifically as gym. Not a fort.. interesting.“
How do you think this update will effect Pokemon Go? Do you think that it may bring back some lost hype from the bugs and lost features we’ve been promised. I believe we may be able to see this update right before the holidays.
