Pokemon Go APK was just updated today to latest version 0.37.0. The biggest update comes with Buddy Pokemon, trainers can now choose any of their Pokemons to be their buddy. Now, choose wisely as having the most powerful buddy may be advsied. You can also earn candy for their Buddy Pokemon by walking them certain distances.
Niantic is also updating the APK so it will detect rooted Android devices or jailbroken devices. If you are using a rooted Android device to use the Pokemon Go Hack, you can still get around this by using RootCloak, which hides root from Pokemon Go app. Of course, there are still many no-root Pokemon Go Hacks like FlyGPS or Tutuapp which you can still use fine.
Pokemon Go v0.37.0 now also supports Pokemon Go Plus device, which should be out shortly. Other than that, there are a few bug fixes here that should help you play the game better.
What is an APK File?
APK File is a file/app that can be installed on any Android smartphone or tablet. Using an APK file, you can install Android apps manually on your Android device.
You do not need a rooted Android device to install APK files. For installation instructions, please see below.
Niantic is still rolling out the new update over the next few days, if you haven’t gotten the update, you can grab the APK below and update manually.
For rooted users, traditionally we can get around root detection using RootCloak APK but in this case, Niantic is using a method that will also detect you are using RootCloak. We should have a solution for now but if you are rooted, you will not be able to play Pokemon Go with the new update.
How to Install APK Files
You will need to make sure Unknown Sources is checked ON in Settings to install APK files. We do recommend you to use a file explorer app such as ES File Explorer, available on the Play Store for free, to install these apps.
