0.53.1 Api Version Forced by Niantic

Just as my last announcement was sent, Niantic has forced the client api version 0.53.1.  Based on the data mining effort by The Silph Road (https://thesilphroad.com/news/pokemon-go-v053-apk-mine-new-moves-and-evolution-items), there appears to be significant changes with this update.

What does this mean for the scans?

As with every forced update, the risk is having our scans go down due to increased security measures as a result of using the older api version.  The amazing efforts of the pogo dev community are already taking place to reverse engineer this version.

Just as a heads up for everyone, if you see all of our alerts and maps down, this is most likely the reason.  We will certainly keep everyone informed.
