Pokémon GO Adding 50 Gen 3 Monsters In Massive Update

Hoenn region Pokémon have been added into Pokémon Go, developer Niantic has recently confirmed. Over the next couple of weeks, additional Hoenn Pokémon will make their debuts in the app, eventually adding up to 50 new creatures that will hail mostly from the worlds that gamers infiltrated in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire.

Now the "Pokemon Go" has introduced AR to the world and a lot of mobile phone players are familiar with the concept, Niantic believes that it is a great time to re-release the game.

Although Niantic became known for its massively popular "Pokemon Go", it actually began with "Ingress", which was launched way back in 2012 when the company was still a subsidiary of Google.

Additionally, pokemon can be associated with different conditions, making them more or less likely to appear based on the weather. Examples offered are that Trainers will find Pokemon like Mudkip splashing around when it rains, Cacnea hanging out on sunny days, or Snorunt enjoying a snow flurry.

Many gamers are still holding out for PvP, updates to PvE, and trading; but it sounds like those enhancements or updates aren't arriving anytime soon. Pokemon caught while taking advantage of the weather will be stronger by default, so players will want to capitalize on this new feature as best they can should they want the best monsters available out there.

Climate will also affect your Pokemon's combat power and how much Stardust you earn after catching a Pokemon.
