Update 10 / 8 / 2019

The dataminers at @Pokeminers have discovered even more new data that was recently hidden within the data of Pokemon Go.

An image depicting the Legendary Titan trio; Regirock, Reisteel, and Regice, has been discovered within the game's files.

Pokeminers has also discovered more information tied to the upcoming ticketed global event.

This new information has caused quite a bit of speculation in the Pokemon Go community. One theory is that the Regi Trio is coming to research breakthrough.  The other main theory is that it's related to the all-but-confirmed release of Regigigas through the upcoming event "A Colossal Discovery"

Image Source

In the main series games, Regigigas has a few requirements that must be met before it can be encountered. The largest of these is that the player is required to have all three of the Legendary Trio that it leads in their party. Because of this, it's very possible that players may be required to have Regirock, Registeel, and Regice in order to encounter Regigigas, or that they will be caught as a part of the ticketed event.

New APK Update information

On October 1st, 2019, Niantic published an update to the Pokemon GO application through the Samsung Galaxy Store. This update is numbered 0.157.0 and has been broken down by @poke_miners, a community of dataminers dedicated to discovering hidden differences in Niantic's updates.

Event Tickets

GLOBAL_EVENT_TICKET_CATEGORY

.BADGE_GLOBAL_TICKETED_EVENT

Badge for new Global Events feature

string Key = "item_global_event_ticket_desc"

string Translation = "A ticket to access the "A Colossal Discovery" special event on {0} from {1} to {2} local time, wherever you are."

Strings about a new event called "A Colossal Discovery," an event possibly linked to the new global event ticketing system. This could refer to the massive Dynamaxed Pokémon of Sword and Shield, or Regigigas, which is the Colossal Pokémon.

string Key = "live_events_shop_category_button"

string Translation = "Learn More"

string Key = "live_events_shop_category_description"

string Translation = "Join a special event"

string Key = "live_events_ticket_calendar_event_add_button"

string Translation = "Add to Calendar"

string Key = "live_events_ticket_calendar_event_add_success"

string Translation = "Event added to calendar successfully."

string Key = "live_events_ticket_calendar_event_title"

string Translation = "Pokémon GO Event"

string Key = "live_events_ticket_ticket_calendar_event_add_fail"

string Translation = "Could not add event to calendar."

string Key = "live_events_ticket_ticket_calendar_event_permission_denied"

string Translation = "Pokémon GO does not have calendar permissions."

Bunch of strings related to global events. Seems like the app can automatically add events to your calendars.

New Filters: Special Move and Distance

BY_SPECIAL_MOVE
BY_DISTANCE

Two new filters added. BY_SPECIAL_MOVE seems like it should allow you to search by legacy or exclusive moves? BY_DISTANCE might let you search for far-away Pokémon, but we don't know specific execution.

New Shadow Pokemon

Lots of new Ghost-types here! If we're lucky, these may come out with a Halloween event! Couple Ice-types and Stantler as well, potentially for December? Notably, missing Koffing (to go with Weezing) and Froslass (to go with Snorunt and Glalie).

New Moves

.V0328_MOVE_HORN_DRILL
.V0329_MOVE_FISSURE
.V0330_MOVE_SACRED_SWORD

Three new moves added! Horn Drill and Fissure are One-Hit KO moves in the main series, interesting that they're considering implementing them.

Sacred Sword is the signature move of the Swords of Justice, (three of which were seen in the Unova promotion video) which could make each of them much more interesting and powerful.

String and Graphic Changes

Plenty of stuff here!

string Translation = "New Trainer Box"
string Translation = "Beginner Box"

Mentions of new boxes. Might be connected to the limited in-app purchases mentioned further down?

string Key = "filter_key_purified"
string Translation = "purified"
string Key = "filter_key_shadow"
string Translation = "shadow"

Unused filters removed. Searching for Shadow and Purified should still work.

string Key = "filter_key_special_move"
string Translation = "special"

New strings for filtering by special moves.

string Key = "incident_encounter_inventory_full"
string Translation = "Your collection is full."

Removed this string.

New Incense Types

HasEggsV2
UsingStarPieceV2
UsingLuckyEggV2
UsingIncenseOrdinaryV2
UsingIncenseSpicyV2
UsingIncenseCoolV2
UsingIncenseFloralV2
UsingLureOrdinaryV2
UsingLureMossyV2
UsingLureGlacialV2
UsingLureMagneticV2
AdventureSyncOptInV2
GeoFenceOptInV2

Telemetry items, but notably it does mention new types of Incense, namely Ordinary (probably what we have now), Spicy, Cool, and Floral.

Other

Limited In-App Purchases

string Key = "purchase_limit_one"
string Translation = "ONE TIME ONLY"

string Key = "purchases_remaining_text"
string Translation = "{0} REMAINING"

string Key = "purchases_remaining_text_singular"
string Translation = "{0} REMAINING"

Limited number of purchases to the store. Potentially to be used for tickets for the global events as seen above, or the beginner boxes.

Inventory Management

ShowHealingInventory
.<ShowHealingInventory>m__0
.<ShowHealingInventory>m__1
.<ShowHealingInventory>m__2

Specifically shows your healing items.

Potentially camera things for buddy feeding, relating to the previously-found new buddy interactions

.get_BuddyGroupNumber
.set_BuddyGroupNumber

Something related to cross promotion events. “Appboy” is a userbase analysis tool.
