Pokemon GO is getting an update that enables language support for the standard Brazilian dialect of the Portuguese language. Along with the new language, the game is getting a minor tweak to the way that it handles player medals; if you give any medal a tap following the new update, you'll be able to see your progress towards the next tier of that medal. The newest version of the game for Android devices carries the version number 0.63.1 and is now available for download in all parts of the world after it started rolling out on the Google Play Store earlier this week.
Pokemon GO hasn't gotten all that many major feature updates since its customization overhaul, but Niantic has been doubling down on expanding its support for new languages, helping to bring the game to a wider audience. Just last month, support for traditional Chinese was also added to the game. That update, like this one, brought a minor tweak along with the new language, introducing some changes to the scroll bar on the Pokemon screen and consequently making it easier for trainers to see their full collection of captured pocket monsters. There were also some bug fixes and obligatory text fixes made to the game with that update, though no details on the matter have been given.
Niantic has reportedly been quite busy working on player versus-player-battles and Pokemon trading, two of the most requested features for the game since day one, but there is still no word on when exactly they may be added to the game. These features would bring the game a bit closer to its contemporaries that have graced Nintendo's handheld game consoles since the very first Game Boy. Naturally, Niantic hasn't been entirely inactive in the meantime; the studio continued releasing new updates for events and adding new languages, while also rolling out Johto-specific Pokemon and adding some new in-game features and tweaks. While it remains to be seen how long will Niantic take to release a new major content update for its popular augmented reality game, more details on its efforts to do so will likely follow soon.
