Pokémon Go Update Shows You Where Pokémon Were Caught, Makes Incense Compatible With Pokémon Go Plus

The latest Pokémon Go update makes it easier to map your journey as a Pokémon Go trainer across the world, while making Pokémon Go Plus a bit better.

The update adds the city a Pokémon was caught to the bottom of their information screen, along with the date. It also allows players to catch drop an incense item (which attracts Pokémon to their location) and catch any Pokémon who approach using the Pokémon Go Plus accessory.

Finally, the update fixes a few minor bugs, including one which would get some players stuck at the game's loading screen.

Our Take
Adding a Pokémon's location is a relatively minor update, but for people who travel regularly (or move from location to location frequently), it's a pretty cool feature. And I would love to use incense and catch Pokémon while jogging every morning, if I could find and buy a damn Plus to do it with.
