A new update for Pokémon GO that brings the game to version 0.73.1 (labelled 1.43.1 on the iOS App Store) is currently being rolled out for iOS and Android. This means that it will not be available for every device right now, but will over the next few days.

The update adds the ability to view the number of Trainers entered, and preparing, for a Raid Battle before using a Raid Pass. It also improves the Pokémon Collection screen search functionality by allowing Trainers to search through their Pokémon's moves using the @ character; for example, searching "@Hydro Pump" displays all Pokémon in the player's collection that know Hydro Pump.

This update allows players to spin the Photo Disc at Gyms using the Pokémon GO Plus.

Additionally, it resolved a bug which caused the Raid Boss to always break free from the last Premier Ball, resolved a bug that prevented players from seeing that they earned doubled XP from Raid Battles when using a Lucky Egg, as well as various other bug fixes.
