Pokémon Go on Windows 10 Mobile is back with PoGo-UWP beta update

The third-party Pokemon Go app PoGo-UWP for Windows 10 Mobile is back in operation. The team behind the app has publicly released version 1.0.25 with a number of fixes and improvements.

Earlier this month, PoGo-UWP became unusable due to changes in data from Pokémon Go developer Niantic Labs. Now it appears the team has found a way to get the app working again. Here's a look at the changes and improvements that have been made to PoGo-UWP:

  • Changed capture page: you can now flick to throw the ball (experimental)
  • Added new map styles to mimic the original app (you can enable them in settings)
  • Added profile page with achievements
  • Added Pokemon detail page where you can evolve, power up and transfer your Pokemon
  • Added Pokemon and Eggs inventory, you can now Incubate your eggs
  • Added Google Login (not supporting 2FA for now)
  • Added translations
  • Added device spoofing, you device will now act as an iPhone to try preventing bugs (we can't guarantee that you're safe from bans, but this may help)
  • Fixed countless bugs
  • Revamped UI

There are also some known issues with this version:

  • Some buttons are not working. They're just placeholders but we didn't add the features yet.
  • Closing button sometimes overlaps the Pokemon in catched Pokemon list
  • Opening the Pokemon details page may cause a crash
  • After leveling up, experience bar on map page shows a wrong value
  • Translations are incomplete
  • Wrong theme may be applied, leading to white text over light map
  • No visual feedback after Egg Hatching, you'll still receive rewards but nothing is shown
  • Some animations really suck

Thanks to everyone for the tips!
