Fans are excited to find out that their favorite game will include 50 new creatures. Weather conditions won't just be a cosmetic thing, either. The first major addition, coming later in the week, is fifty Generation Three Pokemon from Ruby and Sapphire.
Though trading and PVP battles were still on the company's overall "to-do list", Bhargava pointed out that it might take a while before the features get added into the game since Niantic still has to properly investigate the feasibility of the features. Pokemon Go has become so famous because it has incorporated augmented reality technology. This would allow players to obtain region-exclusive Pokemon that they wouldn't be able to get their hands on otherwise. Hence, they need to start a race to gather as many Pokemon as possible. The full roster hasn't been revealed as of yet, but we do know that Pokemon like Torchic, Treecko, Mudkip, and other big names from those games will make the initial cut. Niantic indicates that when the forecast indicates rainy weather, players could spot the fun characters "splashing around". That spell will be more effective when sunny.
