Gen III starters spotted in new ad for Pokémon GO

Gen III starters spotted in new ad for Pokémon GO

There is a possibility that "Ingress Prime" will once again serve as a testing ground for new technologies that will later be implemented on "Pokemon GO" and future Niantic games.

Dynamic weather will use your phone's information to accurately read the weather in your area. Trainers can look forward to finding Mudkip splashing when it rains, Cacnea basking in the sun, and Snorunt huddling together in the snow. It basically laid the groundwork for both the structure and technology used by "Pokemon GO".

Interestingly, the weather additions are not limited to aesthetics. For example, if you are having a hard time catching a Mudkip, you may want to check on a rainy day due to its water type nature.

And now the AR game will bring a bit more reality into the equation with the addition of dynamic weather that mirrors the real world. This will also change the way players discover, catch, and interact with Pokemon as the system is based upon local weather patterns. Add in the silhouette of a Zigzagoon from screenshots on the official website, and that leaves 24 Hoenn region Pokemon unaccounted for, assuming the above Pokemon, their preevolutionary and postevolutionary forms, and the other two Gen III mascots Kyogre and Rayquaza are scheduled to release first.

The newly added Pokemon creatures hail from the Hoenn region and were included in the past Pokemon games, Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire.

Unscheduled landing for Air NZ flight
The pilot elected to shut down one of the plane's engines as a precaution during flight NZ99 to Narita, Tokyo. Customers are encouraged to check this first before calling the airline's contact centre.

In an interview with IGN, Niantic global product marketing lead Archit Bhargava explained that Pokemon trading is still something that the team wants to add to Pokemon GO, especially since it was shown in its initial announcement trailer.

The main games have had weather dynamics before, but it's all digital - you're not actually out in the rain for hours to capture that Pokemon you really want.

These updates are set to roll out in batches over the next few weeks.

The new weather feature increases the spawn rate of associated Pokemon types.
