Pokemon GO's New Updates To Make Seismic Changes To Gameplay

Niantic has announced some pretty significant updates for Pokemon GO. These creatures were originated from "Pokemon Ruby" and "Pokemon Sapphire".

The fact that Niantic chose to incorporate the real-life weather into Pokemon Go's gameplay demonstrates that game developers continue to push boundaries even more.

Ace Trainers can take advantage of their climates to level up their Pokemon GO experience.

We are not sure which new Pokemon are appearing later this week, but Niantic has at least mentioned the three Gen 3 starters (Torchic, Treecko, and Mudkip). Pokemon GO will now factor in the real-world environment and change Pokemon spawns and other goodies like stardust accordingly, adding some much-needed immersion to the title. That said, there are six different weather types available clear, rain, cloudy, fog, snow, and windy. The app will start tracking your local weather, and then insert the weather conditions into the game. However, some fans are upset that features like the weather system are being added before things that were promised before launch, like Pokemon trading and PvP battling. "We just haven't fully investigated those and talked about how would we want to bring those into Pokemon Go", Bhargava admitted. However, others may be fine waiting on Pokemon trading if it means that other new features, like the dynamic weather system, are added instead.

One of the ways that the weather will affect the game is that certain types of Pokemon will pop up more often in certain weather. This will supposedly be geo-specific, meaning that, if it's raining or snowing in real life, those changes will be reflected in the game. Legendary Pokemon of the region viz. Groudon and Kyogre are also teased.
