While fans have been hoping for a new Pokemon Go Easter event announcement, it appears that Niantic have other plans.
Hot on the launch of their latest Pokemon Go update, Niantic confirmed they’re moving toward releasing their biggest changes for the game.
Celebrating their latest mobile gong at the game BAFTAs, the development team decided to drop a big Pokemon Go news post, concerning how things are set to evolve in the future.
“Yesterday, Pokemon Go won the Best Mobile and Handheld Game at the British Academy of Film, Television and Arts Game Awards. We are surprised and grateful to be awarded this honor,” Niantic wrote.
“We owe the continued momentum and recognition to the dedicated players exploring the world and creating adventures together in Pokemon Go.

“Each and every award Pokemon Go has won is a testament to the game’s awesome and supportive community.”
On top of the thanks came the big announcement that spring would see something much bigger launch than an Easter Event, with the development team adding: “We continue to be inspired by the passion of the 65+ million people from around the world playing Pokémon GO each month.
“We’re still at the beginning of the journey and there’s a lot more to come. With spring arriving in the northern hemisphere, players can look forward to all new cooperative social gameplay experiences in Pokemon Go that will give Trainers new and exciting reasons to get back into the sunshine.”
The big news fits in with the rumours that have been floating around recently about a major Teams revamp.
Niantic are reportedly working on a big Pokemon Go update which will drastically change the role Teams play, while also adding new gameplay features.

This could be the roadmap toward releasing the first Legendary Pokemon into the game, although Niantic have yet to confirm officially how they plan to do this.
