50 new Hoenn Pokémon added to Pokémon Go

While discussing the just announced new features with IGN, Niantic marketing lead Archit Bhargava noted that there were still plans to bring trading and PvP into Pokemon Go, but not immediately.

We also know that Niantic has made efforts to curb these numbers by preventing Pokemon Go from functioning when the phone's Global Positioning System suggests that the player is traveling at high speed but this brought along a negative effect on the gameplay experience. 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.

As Trainers are exploring the world around them in search of Pokemon, the current weather in their vicinity will be visible on the in-game map.

Remember back when Pokemon GO was literally the most popular thing on the planet? Trainers can look forward to finding Mudkip splashing when it rains, Cacnea basking in the sun, and Snorunt huddling together in the snow. Also shown was a future raid event that would have Groudon as the legendary Pokemon for players to fight and catch. 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.

Additionally, Niantic confirmed it has added dynamic weather to the game; local conditions around you will cause similar weather in-game.

Climate will also affect your Pokemon's combat power and how much Stardust you earn after catching a Pokemon. The game is now going to feature snow, rain, wind and more which will impact how you play.
