Real-World Weather Added to Pokémon Go

Dynamic weather is being added into Pokémon Go. This is the first time that real weather will impact an augmented reality game.

As players play Pokémon Go, the in-game map will reflect the current weather that the player is experiencing outside of the game. The real-world weather will impact what type of Pokémon are more likely to show up at a given time. Additionally, certain attacks will also be more effective in specific weather conditions.

Along with the weather addition, new Pokémon from the Hoenn region are now available in the game. These new creatures include Treecko, Torchic, and Mudkip, with more to be added soon.

Pokémon Go is available now on iOS and Android devices. Check out the trailer introducing dynamic weather below:
