Not that the footprints were ever any help.
Developer Niantic has rolled out a new 'Pokemon GO' update for iOS and Android that takes out a prominent feature while adding a smaller one in.
This weekend's update has removed the game's footprint mechanic that was meant to show how close a player was to certain Pokemon while they were out and about. Though the feature was never consistently helpful, players will now be even more in the dark about what kind of Pokemon follow them around.
The patch also added the ability to change the player's trainer avatar from their profile screen, meaning players are no longer bound to the aesthetic choices they made when first booting up the app.
The last bit of the patch notes notes that Gym battles have been better polished, along with a small pile of bug fixes.
