Exciting news for Pokemon Go fans! In a recent interview with Eurogamer, senior vice president of Pokemon Go, Ed Wu, shared some key insights into the future of the game. According to Wu, Pokemon Go is not only thriving but is also set to grow even further as it approaches its next decade.

Wu revealed that the recent Go Tour event was a massive success, with in-person raiding seeing a significant increase. This success has solidified the game's position and paved the way for exciting developments in the coming years.

Despite nearing its 10th anniversary, Niantic, the developers of Pokemon Go, are not slowing down. Wu reassured fans that they have laid down strong foundations for the game's future, promising continued support and updates for at least the next decade.

One of the most ambitious plans revealed by Niantic is to eventually include every Pokemon in the game. While this is no easy feat, Wu emphasized that they are committed to doing it right and ensuring a seamless integration of all Pokemon into the game.

Looking ahead, Wu hinted at some exciting updates planned for the game's 10th anniversary. This includes a revamp of the Avatar system, with improved assets and increased customization options for players.

Furthermore, Niantic has big plans for 2024, with major features in the pipeline for later this year. While details remain scarce, the promise of significant changes on the horizon suggests that Pokemon Go players have a lot to look forward to.

Although the recent announcement of Pokemon Legends Z-A has generated buzz, Wu indicated that Pokemon Go will stay focused on its current content roadmap. However, fans can expect plenty of new adventures and challenges in the coming months.
