Pokemon GO – new Gen 3 Pokemon confirmed, dynamic weather system incoming
Niantic has shared the latest news about Pokemon GO. Confirmation has come in that new Pokemon are on the way – 50 in total – and a dynamic weather system is being implemented.
Niantic says that Treecko, Torchic, Mudkip, and other Pokemon from Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire will begin appearing later this week. More will be appearing “over the next several weeks”.
Also coming to Pokemon GO is a new dynamic weather system. Here’s the official breakdown:
You’ll want to start paying even closer attention to your local weather patterns, Trainers. In addition to the in-game map being updated with cool new weather visuals, weather near you will impact Pokémon in a variety of ways. For example, you’ll find your odds of discovering Mudkip splashing around will greatly improve on rainy days, as certain Pokémon types will be more commonly found during various weather conditions. Additionally, attacks of certain types will be more effective during some weather conditions, so a Charizard’s Fire Spin will perform better on sunny days, for example. Rain or shine, winter or spring, your gameplay experience will remain fresh, making your time outdoors even more exciting.
There’s never been a better time to grab your umbrella or snow boots and safely venture outside with family and friends this season. As you explore your local neighborhoods, remember to share a photo of your encounters on social media with the hashtag #PokemonGO. We’d love to see all of your new adventures as they unfold.
