Pokemon Go: Content Update for July, 2023

Hidden Gems is well on its way, as is Summer. We're on our way into July, which is typically one of the hottest months on average in the northern hemisphere. However, it's also a beautiful time to get out and catch some Pokemon, and we've got a few stand-outs. The big prize of July (that we know of so far) has to be the debut of Mega Tyranitar, which drops right after being given access to Brutal Swing. This is a big one, but it's not alone, so let's get into July's festivities!
