‘Pokémon Go’ will soon incorporate real-world weather

Latest news

    The new weather feature and the added Pokémon — at least 50 new Gen III Pokémon — are timed together on purpose. The new additions are all from the Hoenn region and first introduced in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, which were also the first games where weather had an impact on the gameplay. “Fans of Ruby and Sapphire will know that Hoenn brought more than just new Pokémon,” Niantic Project Manager Matt Slemon told Polygon. “It was the first Pokémon game that introduced weather affecting the world itself. Hoenn was heavily influenced by the world around it, [and] we took all of that as pretty hefty inspiration.”

Archit Bhargava, Niantic’s head of global product marketing, also told TechCrunch that an in-game holiday event is in the works.
