The good news is that Pokemon Go just received a hefty update and is now up to version 1.3.0.

The bad news is that this game seems to be tracking its players in impressive new ways.

A series of leaked screenshots from the new experimental “Tracker” program seems to be showing Pokemon Go players near specific PokeStops.


It’s unknown as to the intended purpose of the Tracker tool and if this is meant for players to find each other or for the game’s creators to have a better scope of data as to where players are traveling.

Either way, enjoy the game and be safe out there!
