Most of the fixes in this update are fairly minor, but you can now search through your Pokemon by ‘Lucky’ and the beginning of a long-awaited QR codes for friending, instead of having to type in long strings of numbers.

Here’s whats new in version 1.85.4:

New search term: “Lucky”
New notification system (for friendship actions, etc. Entirely new UI, often click-able)
New setting for hiding ‘Recently Caught Pokémon’ from friends
Many bug fixes and performance updates (including the famed ‘berry bug,’ scrollbar fixes, a major Unity version bump, etc)
QR code friend codes

Players may want to wait to update the app, until it’s clear it’s a stable update.  Many users who updated right away began reporting that the app was crashing on launch, so if your looking to complete a Johto quest, or hunt down a shiny, hit the pause button briefly.

Usually the app stabilizes within a day of a new update, so players should wait a few more hours if they are feeling nervous.

Check back in for more news and updates throughout the rest of the weekend. Until then, good luck out there, trainers!
