Once again another update is rolling out for the popular Pokémon GO and once again it doesn’t implement trading.
Instead the update is said to add bonuses for catching Pokémon and visiting PokéStops every day, but to anyone who does that every day for a week, then there are some bigger bonuses in store for you. Also being implemented is a change to Gyms. Now when you defeat the Gym Leader and kick out an opposing team from their once owned Gym, there will be a limited period of time where only you can put a Pokémon in it, so you no longer have to worry about someone stealing a Gym out from underneath you, after working so hard to take it. There has also been some changes to the number of Prestige a Gym loses when beating a Gym Member.
Here’s Niantic with the full details:
Pokémon GO updated to version 0.45.0 for Android and 1.15.0 for iOS:

Pokémon GO is in the process of being updated to version 0.45.0 for Android and 1.15.0 for iOS devices. Below are some release notes and comments from our development team.
- You’ll earn bonuses for the first Pokémon catch and PokéStop visit each day. You’ll receive a larger bonus when you do this seven days in a row.
- When you defeat the Gym Leader at a rival Gym, there will be a brief period of time where only you will be able to place a Pokémon in the open Gym.
- The amount of Prestige a rival Gym loses when you defeat a regular Gym member has increased. The amount of Prestige gained by training at a friendly Gym has been lowered.
- Minor text fixes

As we have seen with the previous updates, despite the fact it is rolling out now, it can take from a couple of hours, to half a week before everyone can finally get their hands on it. But it is coming!
