Pokemon Go's Nearby Pokemon Feature Expanded

Niantic has expanded the Nearby Pokemon feature to more locations for Pokemon Go. Users in most regions of the world with access to Pokemon Go through the App Store and Google Play can now test it out.

To provide a better experience when searching for Pokémon in the real world, we have also made some changes to the way the Nearby Pokémon feature functions when there are only a few PokéStops in range. We will continue to review the feedback submitted on our official social media accounts and in other channels and make changes if necessary.

The Nearby Pokemon feature allows trainers to view a list of up to nine Pokemon near a local PokeStop. With more locations being added this means players in sparse regions of the world will have better chances at finding Pokemon closer to them than in urban areas.
