GN Version 5.0

- Hanke is on Team Instinct
- Niantic blew threw their sever quota a few hours after the U.S. launch
- Still rolling out the game to other countries
- The game was in development for 2 years before launching
- Niantic is in constant contact with The Pokémon Company
- Niantic is a small company with about 70 employees and is working to hire more
- Daily player base is still massive (won't give exact number)
- Counting on the social/multiplayer aspect to keep the game thriving
- Wants to move people away from constantly looking at their phones while playing the game
- Likely to add support for Android Wear devices
- PvP battles likely to happen
- "Ingress like" events to happen in the future
- Not discussing where Ditto is to avoid ruining the surprise of finding him

Thanks to AlienboyVA for the heads up!
