Here's what could be coming shortly.

Pokemon Go dataminers are a persistent bunch, and they've uncovered yet more secrets in the hit mobile title.

The fine folks at Pokemon Go Hub have uncovered a spate of new information in version 0.191.1 which hints at what's coming.

Pokemon Go Leaks Show Home Updates, Rare XL Candy and More

Perhaps one of the biggest changes to Pokemon Go is its imminent compatibility with Pokemon Home, allowing players to move their captured critters to Pokemon Sword and Shield.

As Pokemon Go Hub reports, "You can use the GO Transporter to send Pokémon from Pokémon GO to Pokémon HOME. You’ll need to use the same Nintendo Account you use for Pokémon HOME."

"The GO Transporter requires GO Transporter Energy to send Pokémon to Pokémon HOME. GO Transporter Energy charges over time. Tap here to learn more about sending Pokémon to Pokémon HOME."

That means it's somewhat unlikely that you'll be able to swap Pokemon as and when you like, and the cost of sending Pokemon to Pokemon Home are apparently determined by the Pokemon's Combat Power rating.

As for Rare XL Candy, the latest update suggests you can earn it in two ways – feeding Pokemon in Gyms, or transferring Pokemon to Pokemon home.

Pokemon Go Hub also reports that there are potential evolution "locks" in the game's code, as well as permanent mega evolutions, but we're yet to find out what those could be for.

Trainers will also be able to embark on Optional and Mandatory quests in the coming weeks, as well as tag Pokemon by colour and name.

For more on Pokemon Go, we've got all of the counters for the Team Rocket Leaders.
