Pokémon Go is getting some cool upgrades. It is getting a bunch of new Pokémon this week and also a dynamic weather system later this month. Maybe the game will get more popular again.
Fans are sure to like these new changes. The game will soon reflect the real weather around you and more than that, it will affect which Pokémon you see and how strong they are. Things are getting more real in Pokemon Go.
So if it’s raining, you’ll see more water-type Pokémon than usual and these will start out with a higher CP than they normally would. This new weather feature and the extra Pokémon which include at least 50 new Gen III Pokémon, are arriving together. The new Pokemon are all from the Hoenn region and first introduced in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, and these were the first games where weather had an impact on gameplay.
“Fans of Ruby and Sapphire will know that Hoenn brought more than just new Pokémon,” Niantic Project Manager Matt Slemon told Polygon. “It was the first Pokémon game that introduced weather affecting the world itself. Hoenn was heavily influenced by the world around it, [and] we took all of that as pretty hefty inspiration.”
