Hi coaches! Version 0.199.0 of Pokémon GO is now rolling out through the app stores. It includes the ability to choose your version of the Kanto Tour, some interesting tips on transformation, new ways to earn XL Candy and more!
🚨⚠️ Disclaimer ⚠️🚨
Please note that miners have publicly reported everything in this article (PokéMiners). Information shared through these channels is not affiliated with or endorsed by Niantic and is always subject to change. Do not take it for granted, the functions change and are scrapped all the time. It is very important that you are aware of these things CAN and will change.
In addition, this article contains my thoughts and opinions about the code that was shared online – all of these should be treated as conjectures, not as harsh statements. If you are feeling well, you can read on. Potential spoilers ahead.

This is how the game handles choosing your version, red or green.

New music for the event as well. You can listen to the music on Pokéminer’s soundcloud.

The winners of the NPC competition have also been added. It seems that they will be considered an “invasion type”. It also seems that there is a chance that you will not get a meeting after you have also fought against them.
Change of form
FormChangeReflection ChangePokemonFormProto ChangePokemonFormOutProto .get_ChangedPokemon .set_ChangedPokemon ChangedPokemonFieldNumber changedPokemon_ ChangedPokemon ERROR_POKEMON_MISSING ERROR_INSUFFICIENT_RESOURCES ERROR_QUEST_INCOMPLETE ERROR_POKEMON_CANNOT_CHANGE ERROR_POKEMON_DEPLOYED get_FormChange
Will form change finally come to Pokémon GO? There are several Pokémon that can change shape with special items, Rotom is one that comes to mind. In Sword and Shield you can get a Rotom Catalog from an NPC in Wyndon. Could that be how they want to approach Arceus?
Nothing is free
CHANGE_POKEMON_FORM .get_FormChangeSettings .set_FormChangeSettings FormChangeProto .get_AvailableForm .set_StardustCost .get_ItemCost .set_ItemCost .get_QuestRequirement
It seems that it will be a cost to change the shape of a Pokémon, this seems to have left it open to cost Stardust, stuff, a possible quest or a combination of all three.
A shiny new brand?
If they track how many times you change the shape of a Pokémon, there’s probably a new mark for it.
formChangeFxPrefabReference formChangeFxOffset formChangeModelSwapDelaySeconds formChangeAnimationDelaySeconds
The change of the form will be accompanied by an animation, as expected.
A new quest to change Pokémon shapes.
New XL Candy Methods
Bonus XL candy events?
This is apparently related to the Game Master file in the same way as bonus stardust and candy are, so it is likely that they are preparing to have some events where we get bonus XL candy. Possibly from spotlight events?
Let’s Go Bonus XL Candy?
This was added to “BelugaTransactionCompleteOutProto” which is used to send Pokémon to Let’s Go, so maybe we get bonus XL candy for transfer to Pokémon Let’s Go?
Feather dance is finally here, well … sorta. The sound and statistics are still missing, but it is in the game code now.
Updates of friend lists
It seems that you may soon be your favorite friends.
New acts of friendship
RESERVED_ACTION_1 GET_INCOMING_GAME_INVITES_V2 UPDATE_INCOMING_GAME_INVITE_V2 DISMISS_OUTGOING_GAME_INVITES_V2 INVITE_CONTACT GET_CONTACT_LIST UPDATE_CONTACT_LIST
Not sure what “Reserved action” means, we’ll see. It seems that there are also improvements in invitations.
Cross playmate interactions
GetCallingGameFriendsList GetCrossGameFriendsList friendIds GetFriendDetailsForCallingGameFriendList GetFriendDetailsForCrossGameFriendList UpdateIncomingGameInvite SendGameInvite inviteAppKeys DismissSendInvites
Looks like some interactions between games are coming? I suspect “Send Game Invite” is Niantic’s way of trying to get us to invite our friends from other Niantic games to come and play Pokémon Go. Truthfully, that’s probably all this is … There are a LOT of details about this feature, I will not list everything here
It seems we can disable nicknames? Probably buddy Pokémon for people on your friends list, for the younger players or those who do not want to see the “creative” names that people use for Pokémon.

New team suggestions for pvp?
Pokéstop / Gym Photo Galleries

More for the POI image gallery. It seems that it will work much like Ingress, Pokéstops and Gyms will have more pictures, and the one with the most votes will be the primary picture shown in the photo counter.
Divide your success by level up
.get_ImageGalleryTelemetry .set_ImageGalleryTelemetry .get_PlayerShownLevelUpShareScreenTelemetry .set_PlayerShownLevelUpShareScreenTelemetry
As announced, you will be able to share your level without taking a screenshot.
It seems that we can also turn off alerts soon.
It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s … an ad on a balloon ?!

Looks like Niantic is going to send you the ads you can not get out to see for yourself! On balloons no less. Do not worry, it seems that these advertising balloons do not disturb Team Go Rocket Balloons spawning, and they will even be blown off to make room for a Team Go Rocket Balloon spawning.
