Pokémon GO Adds New Hoenn Pokémon and Features

Slowly but surely, Pokémon GO players will be able to catch them all. Around Halloween we received a sneak peek with some Ghost-types from the Hoenn region but so many more are coming soon! Niantic revealed an update set to take place later this week.

Trainers will be able to find a number of favorite Hoenn region Pokémon. Torchic, Mudkip, Treecko, Absol, Zangoose, Seviper and more will be available. In addition to them comes raids, eventually, to capture Groudon and Kyogre. But an awesome new feature being implemented is the appearance of weather patterns. The game is now going to feature snow, rain, wind and more which will impact how you play. Certain Pokémon are more likely to appear during these events and it could even change your battling strategies. And it’s all set to occur in real time which means if it’s raining at home, you’ll be sure to see plenty of Pokémon splashing around.

Take a look at the announcement video below for a look at the fun to come. Keep catching them all, trainers!
