New App Icon Party!
A new app icon is now used! Get excited!
MR_RIME_NORMAL MR_RIME_SHADOW MR_RIME_PURIFIED .V0866_POKEMON_MR_RIME
Get your Galar on (well at least one more Galar).
PIKACHU_ADVENTURE_HAT_2020 PIKACHU_WINTER_2020 DELIBIRD_WINTER_2020 CUBCHOO_WINTER_2020
Get ready for some new Holiday costumes!
New Event Grey Ticket Grey Event Ticket
This is another ticket (like the pink ticket) so they can sell more overlapping events at the same time. This might have a specific event in mind, but that's not something we can tell.
Easier Purchasing of Remote Raid Passes
As announced in the release notes, there will be a button that seems to take you to the shop to buy Raid Passes when you are out. This goes with the texts we found previously.
Select All New bar with Select All button
ClickSelectAllButton pokemonIconWidget oldRatingLabel IsDisabledForMassTransferSelection
A new select all button has been added once you select at least one Pokemon. It does what you would expect, select all the currently filtered Pokemon in the list (minus ones it can't select like shinies, favourites, etc).
Gen 6-8 Reporting
ReportPlayerKalosDexCount ReportPlayerAlolaDexCount ReportPlayerGalarDexCount .get_KalosDexCount .set_KalosDexCount .get_AlolaDexCount .set_AlolaDexCount .get_GalarDexCount .set_GalarDexCount
Reporting back to the server what your dex count is for each badge.
Tagging Tag Icon Add a Tag to a Pokemon
tagDetailHeader tagTitle tagColorDot tagPokemonCount editTagButton editTagButtonObject titleUnderliner tagDetailHeaderRoot tagPageTitle tagTabRoot createTagButton tagButton tagButtonText ClickTagButton
Tagging might finally be ready in this update (I said that last time too though, so what do I know haha).
Icons for adding a tag to a Pokemon and the tag itself has been added. GUI sections for Tag title, colour, count of how many Pokemon are tagged with that tag, as well as edit and create buttons for tags. Seems like 191 added the backend for tags and 193 added the front end.
AssignTagGuiController pokemonContainer assignTagCellPrefab addTagCellPrefab maxPokemonSprites deleteTagButton doneButton warningText toggleGroup CREATE_TAG EDIT_TAG
And of course the buttons for editing the tags.
TagDetail ShowTagInfo .get_InventoryContext .set_InventoryContext GetCurrentInitializationData UpdateDisplayFilter AddPokemonToTag EstimateWidthForTag PokemonInfoTagWidget
Looks like tags will take up different widths (probably depending on name)
Sounds like you'll see some tags and then by clicking on a button can see more.
Pokemon Inventory Updates
regularTransferButton regularTransferBackground regularTransferText activeTransferButtonColor inactiveTransferButtonColor activeTransferBackgroundColor inactiveTransferBackgroundColor activeTransferTextColor inactiveTransferTextColor
Lots of talk about active and inactive transfer buttons, curious. There was also referencing telling the difference between Let's GO/HOME transfers vs regular transfers. Perhaps the button changes colour for that.
tagIcon pokemonSprite RefreshStaminaColor PokemonInventoryCellView
Looks like the stamina colour can refresh on your inventory screen, and also what the tag will look like on your Mon.
holdTimeInSeconds favoriteStar ViewAllTagsGuiController headerDynamicHeightController tagDynamicHeightController
Sounds like they can change the time you need to hold for a selection now. Also how the tags will appear in the header (that blank bar we think from the Select All screenshot).
There were also several updates to the way gradients, shadows, borders, row height and spacing, and other GUI items appear, presumably related to tagging.
Recent and Favourite Searches
ManageFavoriteSearchGuiController allSearchIconsGuiControllerPrefab recommendedSearchIconsGuiControllerPrefab manageFavoriteSearchGuiControllerPrefab
More information has been found regarding the recent and favourite searches. Looks like the GUIs for these things have been added.
Some telemetry back to the server.
AddRecentSearch AddFavoriteSearch RemoveFavoriteSearch SetFavoriteSearchTitle .get_RecentAndFavoriteSearchesBase64 .get_RecentSearches .get_FavoriteSearches RecentSearches FavoriteSearches
The ability to add recent and favourite searches. The recent search we would imagine is for the game to automatically add them, but we'll see.
ProfanityCheckOutProto .get_AcceptAuthorOnly .set_AcceptAuthorOnly
Author only is interesting. Not sure what this could mean tbh. It was found in the profanity check though, so might be an override to allow your username if your name has swear words in it?
Also in addition, as stated in the release notes, the keyboard no longer closes when clearing the search text.
StartOnTagPage .get_TagDetailFlags .get_StartOnEggsFlags .get_MainMenuFlags ShowPokemonToSelectParty .setPokedexEntryToReopen
Some new flags for starting the Inventory screen at specific locations, and toggling showing specific settings.
POI Contributions Camera Plus Icon POI Device Icon
poi_contrib_limit_photo poi_contrib_limit_ar poi_contrib_unavailable_disabled
We threw this in its own section from AR Mapping or POI Submissions because for some reason they are called POI Contrib instead of POI Submissions like the others. So they may be different. One theory is this is the service that allows you to add additional images to the Image Gallery (below).
POI_CONTRIB__MIN_PLAYER_LEVEL_KEY POI_CONTRIB__DISTANCE_LIMIT_KEY POI_CONTRIB__ADD_PHOTO_LIMIT_KEY POI_CONTRIB__ADD_SCAN_LIMIT_KEY POI_CONTRIB__N_LIMIT_RESET_KEY
Some values/states the contrib service can have.
Image Gallery and Image Voting
A new library was added for the Image Gallery. The Image Gallery is the previously announced feature coming to PoGo from Ingress where you can have several images per PokeStop. It appears they are might be using Ingress' library for this (or maybe a Niantic Real World Library).
GET_IMAGE_GALLERY_SETTINGS OnScanPoiClicked OnGalleryClicked scanPoiButton galleryButtonObject scanPoiImage galleryButtonImage
These were added to the full-screen view of a POI. So looks like you can access POI scanning and the Gallery from new buttons (instead of them being hidden away) in a sub-menu.
.get_IsPoiImageGalleryEnabled RequestSettingsFromServerOnce IsPoiImageGalleryEnabled PoiImageGalleryInstaller poiImageGalleryPrefab poiImageDetailsPrefab imageGalleryScrollerPrefab imageDetailsScrollerPrefab IPoiImageGalleryState PoiImageGalleryStateShim PoiImageGalleryState ProcessGalleryImagesWithMessage UpdateAddPhotoButton StopLocationUpdatePromise IsAddPhotoEnabled EnterImageDetailsState HandleAddPhotoPressed EnableBackButton .get_MaxPeriodicImageLoadedCount .set_MaxPeriodicImageLoadedCount
The actual Image Gallery installer and GUI service including how many images can be loaded.
GalleryImageSelected imageGalleryRowPrefab GALLERY_IMAGES_PER_ROW IImageGalleryScrollerCell ImageGalleryScrollerCell imageDataList imageIndex OnDragSendMainImageIndex ImageDetailsScroller currentImageIndex OnScrollCellInitialized WhenScrollerIsMoving ResizeAndPosition
Viewing the Gallery, scrolling through it, and how the images are re-sized to fit.
imagesToVoteFor imagesToUnvoteFor .get_UpVoted .set_UpVoted .get_VoteCount .set_VoteCount .get_HasBeenVotedOnInThisSession .set_HasBeenVotedOnInThisSession notUpVotedTexture upVotedTexture voteButtonImage voteButton
Just like Ingress, you can vote for which images you think are the best, and the image with the highest score becomes the main image (from what I understand from Ingress at least).
addPhotoButtonImage addPhotoButtonEnableSprite addPhotoButtonDisabledSprite addPhotoButtonEnabledColor addPhotoButtonDisabledColor PoiImageSubmitter PoiImageSubmissionTime PoiImageId PoiImageUrl PoiImageIndexNumber
Buttons for adding a photo, and then how they store that photo.
.get_AdTargetingInfo .set_AdTargetingInfo AdTargetingInfoFieldNumber
It appears ads will start to be targeted either to you or a stop?
keepPosition _Resize _UpdateSpacing _AddCellViewSizes numberOfTimes cellCount .setVisibleCellViews _RecycleAllCells _RecycleCell listPosition TweenPosition cellViewIndex insertPosition scrollerOffset cellOffset useSpacing
Several updates to their scrolling object. We won't copy everything here, just some highlights but sounds like smoother scrolling hopefully?
AR Mapping and Upload Progress
Some updates to AR Mapping as well. First up two more errors/failures for bad scans.
Under the Pokestop checks, there is now another check if the player can receive an AR Mapping quest. Unclear how this is different than the current system but we'll see.
UploadsInProgress CancelSubmissionUpload doUploadNowMessaging NotifyUploadNowStarted NotifyUploadLaterSelected UploadNowStartedHasSubscribers UploadLaterSelectedHasSubscribers add_OnUploadNowStarted remove_OnUploadNowStarted add_OnUploadLaterSelected remove_OnUploadLaterSelected OnUploadNowStarted OnUploadLaterSelected
A whole new section for upload in progress has been added. Including cancelling a submission mid upload.
originalFile CopyFileForSubmission MoveFileForSubmission GetSubmissionType WasSubmissionFound GetExtensionForType IsCorrectExtensionForType EditImage FILE_EXTENSION_JPG FILE_EXTENSION_JPEG ArScanV1 ArScanV2 ImageNomination ImageEdit
It also appears they have a new File service that moves files from one directory to another before upload? It kinda looks like they are using their AR Mapping service to do the Image Gallery upload but we'll need to spend more time with the APK to tell.
ITitanPlayerLocationService GetPlayerLocation LOCATION_CHECK_FREQUENCY locationUpdatePromise
Additional location checks and location frequency checks specifically for AR Mapping.
Player Save Data
Two new values being saved back to your Player data. Your battle parties (previously announced) and your recent and favourite searches.
A way to exclude badges. Unsure what this will be used for.
Generic Colour Updates
rgbColor RGBToHSV dominantcolor colorone colortwo RGBToHSVHelper
And finally, their generic colouring object received some updates. Perhaps this was to fix the Meltan candy issue.
