50 new Hoenn Pokémon added to Pokémon Go

Share

Pokemon from the Hoenn Region will start appearing this week in Pokemon GO.

More surprisingly, though, is that Pokemon GO is about to require going out into the rain and snow to capture every monster thanks to a new weather system.

Niantic plans to release these updates in two individual parts. "So we definitely felt the need to bring out the Hoenn region Pokemon, so that became the focus, and dynamic weather came through that". 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. The first major addition, coming later in the week, is fifty Generation Three Pokemon from Ruby and Sapphire. Before Niantic clarified that people would have to physically be near each other to trade, some expected the trading system to be similar to the mainline Pokemon games on handhelds that allow players to trade Pokemon online.

Google Formally Shuts Down 'Apps' Section on Chrome Web Store
According to Ars Technica , Google is directing developers towards a different way for desktop: Progressive Web Apps (PWA). The removal of apps from the Chrome Web Store was actually first announced by Google back in August 2016.

"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". Instead, they will be released gradually in due course.

Take a look at some of the Gen 3 Pokemon coming to the game very soon, as mentioned specifically by Niantic.

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. If gamers happen to get the new creatures quickly, they will start to ask for more. Rather than releasing all 130 Hoenn Pokemon all at once, Niantic has made a decision to introduce this generation's Pokemon incrementally. Game developers update this app periodically, implementing new augmented reality features.
