So over the weekend I stumbled upon an article related to Pokemon Go and I found it very interesting, I’m sure many of us will like the news on this, but with still no release date is a little sad that we have to wait this long to get the app on our hands. But the news are great, at least I think so, so lets get down to business and talk about the article.
The article reads that they ( Niantic) are working on a way to have several Pokemon around us so that all we need to do is walk/drive for 5 minutes and we will find Pokemon, I think this is great for people that like to walk around their parks or near the city as well. Some people live in downtown and at times is hard or annoying that they have to drive outside their area just to find a Pokemon.
“Hanke: Our goal is to make it so you can walk out of the house and within five minutes, you can find Pokémon. It may not be the most rare Pokémon in the world, but there’ll be a population of Pokémon living near all our players. Gyms will be a bit more rare. You want to find gyms so you can level up your Pokémon and battle there, so it will take a little more effort to get there.”- Source
Another topic they touched was the Gym! Well even though not much information was given they did say that the Pokemon can level up once fighting in the gyms, does this mean if we find Pokemon in the wild and fight them, are they not going to level up that way? That information was not very specific, but I do hope is not mandatory to go to “gyms” in order to level up your Pokemon.
And the last part, Pokemon types availability. It was said that some types of Pokemon will be available at certain locations, varying from city and country. Some Pokemon will be native to their ecosystem, as an example, if you live in a city surrounded by water then you will encounter more water type ones than others, also some rare Pokemon will be available only at certain countries, which is the reason they added trading options. One Pokemon that may be available in the U.S may not be found in Spain, making players want to trade not just among friends in different cities but in different countries. It was also said that they will have Pokemon events in which people can attend to help them trade and I believe obtain different kinds of Pokemon capturing them.
“Pokémon will live in different parts of the world depending on what type of Pokémon they are. Water Pokémon will live near the water. It may be that certain Pokémon will only exist in certain parts of the world. Very rare Pokémon may exist in very few places. But you can trade.”- Source
