  • Minccino Research: Make {0} Nice Throws in a row

Minccino, The Rat like Pokemon is yet to be released in the Pokemon GO, and if we quietly observe several other Rat-like Pokemon are mentioned in the above quests.

If the dots are connecting properly, It suggests that Minncino could be released alongside the Chinese New Year 2020 event. This year is Year of the Rat and the Chinese New Year starts in one week, January 25th, and lasts until February 4th.

POI Editing of Sponsored Stops added

Several strings were added in the GAME_MASTER supporting the editing and reporting of POI (Point of Interest).

It’s just used to edit existing locations and not add any. Looks like all the standard editing stuff we already have, just focused on sponsored stops.
