Game Pick: Pokemon Go Updates

Rene Ritchie's pick of the week on MacBreak Weekly 565 is the latest Pokemon Go update. One of the major changes is the way gyms operate. The game now will hurt higher level Pokemon more in gyms, so you'll want to use lower powered Pokemon instead. It's also easier to take down a gym, and you get coins faster. This makes it more accessible to more players who don't play the game all the time and have really high level characters.

Niantic has also added Battle Raids. When you're playing the game, you'll get a notification that a Battle Raid is about to start. Then the gym will go down, and a boss will appear, and up to 20 people at a time can take on the gym. Teams don't matter in this case — it's everyone against the boss. This has been getting more people together to play the game.
