50 new Pokemon added to Pokemon Go in a major update

Share

The biggest change might be that Hoenn-region Pokémon will be part of the gameplay and have the potential to be caught by users starting as early as the end of this week.

And now the AR game will bring a bit more reality into the equation with the addition of dynamic weather that mirrors the real world.

However, as well as bolstering the games Pokedex with upwards of 50 new mons from the Ruby and Sapphire games - a snip of the overall 135 new Pokemon from the Hoenn region - the game will also be adding a rather significant new in-game feature. The six possibilities are Sunny, Rainy, Snowy, Foggy, Partly Cloudy, and Windy. Because, you know, it's so much fun playing a video game outside in the rain or snow. Your local weather patterns will impact what Pokemon will appear. So we do continue to talk about some of the features that you mentioned, and they are on the roadmap. Before Niantic clarified that people would have to physically be near each other to trade, some expected the trading system to be similar to the mainline Pokemon games on handhelds that allow players to trade Pokemon online. According to reports, the Gen 3 Pokemon will be out in batches, according to their themes.

Gen 3 Pokemon are coming!

It can't be a coincidence that Niantic is choosing to add dynamic weather to Pokemon GO at the same time that they are adding Pokemon from Ruby and Sapphire. But from now on, Pokemon GO players will need to get a little more hardcore if they want to catch 'em all. Rather than releasing all 130 Hoenn Pokemon all at once, Niantic has chose to introduce this generation's Pokemon incrementally. Similarly, PvP battles are also still planned for the game, but it's anyone's guess as to when they will finally be added.
