Pokemon GO Adds Hoenn Region Pokemon and Dynamic Weather
Dec 07 2017 by Joanne Wise
With the release of 50 third generation Pokemon imminent as well as the introduction of a new dynamic weather system, it's an exciting time to be a Pokemon GO fan. Moreover, Pokemon better accustomed to certain weather will naturally be stronger in those conditions and hindered during others, so training and battles could be greatly swayed by weather's whim. In other words, prepare to walk around with your phone out in the rain and snow.
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. The app will start tracking your local weather, and then insert the weather conditions into the game.
The five different types of weather are clear (effects grass, ground, and fire spawns), foggy (effects dark and ghost spawns), rainy (effects water, electric, and bug spawns), snowy (effects ice and steel spawns), and windy (effects dragon, flying, and psychic spawns). In response to these concerns, Niantic has revealed that Pokemon trading is still in the cards, but there is still no timetable for when it will be added to the game.

The smartphone is backed by a 3,340mAh non-removable battery and there is no information about the fast charging support. A ton of Huawei Nova 2s images surfaced in the last week or two, and the company has finally announced the device.

Later on, Sadiq met with Chief Minister Punjab Shehbaz Sharif and visited the historical Badshahi Mosque. The trip is aimed at strengthening trade and investment links as well as promoting cultural exchange.
We are not sure which new Pokemon are appearing later this week, but Niantic has at least mentioned the three Gen 3 starters (Torchic, Treecko, and Mudkip).
One of the ways that the weather will affect the game is that certain types of Pokemon will pop up more often in certain weather. Because, you know, it's so much fun playing a video game outside in the rain or snow. "W$3 e definitely felt the need to bring out the Hoenn region Pokemon, so that became the focus, and dynamic weather came through that". Finally, weather will also aid your caught Pokémon; Charizard's attacks will be more powerful on a sunny day.
