Gen 2, Unown Added, New Avatar Customization Options and More Datamined in New Pokemon GO Update


Here’s the result of our data mine of the new 0.53.1 APK! It’s very exciting moment, as we see more and more Generation 2 and Shinny details added. The release is conservative, as Niantic is hiding their tricks very very well!

This data mine is a work in progress, will be updated more today. You can always go and look at the entire metadata dump for yourself. Huge file though, 6 MB of code! 🙂

Four new evolution items were found, showing how future evolutions will work:



38 new moves added in the code behind!!


Unown added in the codebase

Finally, the Unown family was also added to the code base, now featuring the full Unown alphabet, together with puncuation marks!


New Trainer Customization: Glasses, Belt, Necklace

Niantic is continuing to add Avatar Customization Options, now features three newly added: Glasses, Belt and Necklace. There is no additional code to support it, just a few placeholder elements.


Medals could reward trainer swag

Apparently, we could be able to unlock several customization options with Medals!



A new badge was added, or two, rewarding players that train and attack gyms.


More Shinny code added

More code for Shiny Pokémon was added, now showing a full fleshed out system. Shinies are regarded as costumes, similar to Santa Pikachu was treated and by the looks of it, it could be released any time soon!



Generation 2 Pokemon Added

You can see all stats, model animations, weights, etc… in the attached game master file. We are continuing to data mine other files to see what’s else new!

We are trying to find differences between this and previous GAME_MASTER. Stay tuned!
