Niantic surprised everyone today taking the wraps off new Pokemon coming to Pokemon Go as well as a new feature! Fans have been clamoring for new pokemon for a while now and we got a small taste of that with Pokemon Go’s Halloween event in October, however now they are expanding on the with 50 new creatures! Pokemon such as Treecko, Torchic, and Mudkip will be appearing in Pokemon Go as soon as this week according to Niantic along with many other Pokemon originally found in the Hoenn region!
Niantic also dropped word of a new feature “weather”. Weather, which may sound simple will change up game play a lot. If it is raining in your area you can expect to see more water types, or if it’s snowing more steel and ice types. These additions will really change up what Pokemon you will see in your area which will hopefully change up gameplay. We saw the beginnings of this with different Pokemon appearing at night however with weather we will hopefully be able to see changes in real time and know exactly what the changes are.
Once the update is released later this week we will update the post with exactly which Pokemon were released. Pokemon Go Hub’s Youtube channel is linked so you can see what weather will look like in game. We hope you are as excited as we are and we want to hear about what features you might want in Pokemon Go next!
