50 new Hoenn Pokémon added to Pokémon Go

50 new Hoenn Pokémon added to Pokémon Go

Although Pokemon Go didn't have quite the longevity that fans were hoping it might, the game is still drawing a crowd (as evidenced by the recent Global Catch Challenge), and Niantic has now been tapped to build a Harry Potter AR game.

Hoenn starters such as Treecko, Torchic and the beloved Mudkip are all now available in the wild, along with a cadre of other third gen monsters.

Weather near players will impact Pokemon in a variety of ways and some attacks will be more effective during certain conditions.

As predicted, the number of road accidents has increased significantly near Pokemon Go areas. Trainers can look forward to finding Mudkip splashing when it rains, Cacnea basking in the sun, and Snorunt huddling together in the snow. "The in-game map will be updated with cool new weather visuals based on your local weather patterns". As the seasons change, they will encounter different Pokemon, thereby keeping their gameplay experience fresh.

Slowly but surely, Pokémon GO players will be able to catch them all. Rainy days just got more interesting for that next outdoor excursion.

Another addition made to the mainline games with Ruby & Sapphire is also making the leap over to the mobile app - dynamic weather.

If you want to try these new features out for yourself, you can download Pokemon GO right now for free.

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