You can also expect some major changes coming to Pokéstops, an area Hanke seemed to find particularly interesting, per the report. Pokéstops are currently used to acquire essential items like Poké Balls as well as to attract Pokémon with Lure Modules, but Hanke suggests players can use other objects in the game to further change how Pokéstops function; for example, they could transform into Pokémon Centers to heal your Pokémon, he said. He hopes to bring Pokémon Centers to the game, one way or another, according to the report. Hopefully, this will involve Nurse Joy and an army of Chanseys.
And if that's not enough new features for you, new abilities for Pokémon trading, training, and breeding are also in the works, per the report. Hanke previously described the ability to trade Pokémon as "kind of a core element" of the game.
At one point during the conversation, Hanke went so far as to say the game currently includes only about a tenth of the functionality the company wanted to pack into it at launch, according to a report by BGR. In other words, it seems like they're only just getting started. Unfortunately, Hanke didn't offer a specific timeline of when the new features and updates will become available and suggested the company's biggest priority is improving the game's wildly unreliable server capacity.
"I don't have a date for you," he said. "We're working really hard to keep the servers up and running. We're working on it, but its gonna take a little longer."
Basically, there's a good chance the Pokémon Go craze isn't going anywhere.
