A new update for Pokemon Go has arrived, but don't expect any new features.

As outlined on Pokemon Go's website, the focus of the newest update is on smaller items, focusing on two areas. First, players will now receive a random evolution item for completing the seven-day "First PokeStop of the Day" challenge. Previously, you received 2,500 XP and other items for the Photo Disc when you visited a PokeStop every day for seven days in a row.

Today's Pokemon Go update also includes "minor text fixes," though these were not detailed. With the update applied, Pokemon Go should show up as version 0.59.1 on Android and 1.29.1 on iOS.

In other news about Pokemon Go, developer Niantic Labs has confirmed that more Legendary creatures are coming this year. Also coming to Pokemon Go is the highly anticipated trading feature. At the Game Developers Conference this month, product manager Tatsuo Nomura said trading will not be done through the internet. Players will need to be physically close to swap creatures.
