Following the recent announcement that Niantic will add on new gameplay mechanics such as PVP and Pokemon Trading, a new update is set to come this week. The update brings in 80 new Pokemon, current items, new outfits, and of course the gameplay mechanics.
The said 80 new monsters would feature great Pokemon from the Johto region which is commonly from Pokemon Gold and Silver. These include Pokemon such as Chikorita, Cyndaquil, and Totodile. As soon as the update drops, trainers can catch these Pokemon in the wilds.
In addition to the Pokemon that will appear for the first time, Niantic introduces new gameplay mechanics for players to work around. These updates include encounter gameplay, new Evolution items, two new Berries, and outfits and accessory options for trainers avatars.
"With Pokémon GO, The Pokémon Company endeavored to create a compelling game based on the concept of encountering and catching Pokémon in the real world. The amazing response to Pokémon GO by millions of existing and new Pokémon fans around the world is remarkable. We're thrilled to keep the adventure going by welcoming these Pokémon to this engaging new way of experiencing the fun of the Pokémon brand," " said J.C. Smith, Senior Director, Consumer Marketing, The Pokémon Company International.
The latest game update of Pokemon Go makes evolving more fun and easy. Players will be given new Evolution items to evolve their Pokemon. Catching is made extra easy too, using the two new berries; Nanab Berry slows down Pokemon movement, and Pinap Berry which doubles the Candy received in every catch.
The recent announcements of Niantic give an all new reason to start playing the game again. Since the company is now focusing on content intended updated, it allows more interaction and opens more interest that old players can bank into.
As a Pokemon Go Addict before, this news sets me to download the game again on my iPhone and start catching them all. Share us your thoughts in the comment section below.
