Here's How the Weather Will Change Pokemon Go

Here's How the Weather Will Change Pokemon Go”

After debuting the first batch of Generation 3 Pokemon during the Halloween event in October, Niantic announced on Wednesday that several new Pokemon from the Hoenn region will be arriving in-game later this week, with even more set to arrive in the coming weeks. Certain types of Pokemon moves will also become more powerful in certain types of weather, adding to their effectiveness in gyms and raids. Of course, playing Pokemon GO in the snow or rain may not necessarily always be advisable, it is nice to know that the in-game map will now match the world your camera sees when you're playing the game. Pokemon that spawn because of the weather will have a weather effect surrounding them, similar to how the game marks Pokemon that spawn because of incense. After all, those game introduced an entirely new weather system to the game that drastically changed the functionality of Pokemon's worlds. This new system is being implemented to encourage players to head outdoors, regardless of the conditions, by providing trainers with a few incentives.

For example: the odds of discovering Mudkip will increase on rainy days; and Charizard's Fire Spin will perform better on sunny days. Now you actually have a good reason to put on a raincoat or your snow boots in order to catch certain Pokemon. The Verge noted that, while Gen 3 Pokemon will be added to the game sometime this week, the weather effects will be added in a second update.

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.
