Pokemon Go

  • “Pokémon Go” just got two updates: 50 new Pokémon characters and a new “dynamic weather system.”
  • Those who played the “Pokémon Ruby” and “Pokémon Sapphire” video games will recognize the new characters from the Hoenn region — they include Treecko, Torchic, and Mudkip, and more will be added in the weeks to come.
  • “Pokemon Go” will also now take weather into account, reflecting players’ local weather patterns. Certain characters like Mudkip are most likely to appear on rainy days, for example, and attacks like Charizard’s Fire Spin will be more effective on sunny days.
  • “Pokémon Go” creator Niantic Labs put out a new video that highlights the updates — watch it below.
