Now isn’t that something to smile about?

Back when Pokémon Smile wasn’t just a bizarre concept, but a brand new spin-off game released last year for mobile devices, created as a means of encouraging younger players to brush their teeth, the game was solely made up of Gen 1 Pokémon, but now all of that has changed.

With a version 1.1.0 update available now, new Pokémon Caps and 4 additional Pokémon have been added to the game and they are none other than Smeargle, Ludicolo, Mime Jr. and Dedenne. The update also provides players with a new session length when brushing and gives them the means of new “in-game picture options in the brushing settings menu.”
