Pokémon GO Balance Update – February 21, 2017

Today’s unannounced balance update for Pokémon GO focuses on Fast Attacks. While power was reduced for many fast attacks, the reduction of their duration makes them faster. It also appears most fast attacks gain less energy. Below is a list of the changes. Click the attack name for more details (all pages have been updated with the new information).
