The game’s code includes a new placeholder called “Activity Catch Legend Pokemon" seems to indicate that gamers will be able to catch rare Pokémon in the near future. Although how and where they’ll be caught remains a mystery, Niantic has hinted the existence of Mewtwo in the game trailer.

Finally, a new VR folder has been found in the game’s code, and it references Google CardBoard. That means playing Pokemon in VR will become a reality soon enough, although we can’t help but wonder if that’s really a safe way to play the popular mobile game.

Although there isn't any confirmation yet from Niantic regarding the updates, we're hoping that it would be worth the wait!
