Pokemon GO: Still No Timetable for Pokemon Trading

Pokemon GO: Still No Timetable for Pokemon Trading

Pokemon Go previously increased the maximum Pokemon and item limit back in February when they added "Gen 2" Pokemon to the game, but they haven't touched the maximum level cap since the game came out in 2016.

Going on IGN to discuss some of Pokemon Go's newest features, Niantic's marketing lead, Archit Bhargava, went on to assure fans that the company still had plans to incorporate PvP and trading in Pokemon Go.

Pokemon from the Hoen region are about to find their way into our world with the rollout of pocket monsters from Generation III in Pokemon GO. In addition to the in-game map being updated with cool new weather visuals, weather near you will impact Pokémon in a variety of ways.

The new weather system, though? "Those weather conditions will not only affect the appearance of the game but also affects a bunch of the mechanics of the game". "So you will see the sun out if the sun is out, you will see snow falling if snow is falling, you will see rain falling if rain is falling", Slemon explained. 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. "You will get some additional Stardust anytime you capture a Pokemon that has an affinity with current weather". If it is raining, water-type creatures will be more visible. Certain Pokemon will be more likely to appear in the weather that suits them the most, so Pokemon GO Trainers will be excited to learn more about their local weather patterns and ecology to find these rare Pokemon and make progress on their Pokedexes.

Niantic has announced some pretty significant updates for Pokemon GO.
