Pokemon GO Dynamic Weather gameplay EXPLAINED ahead of ...

The rest of Gen III and Dynamic Weather officially heading to Pokémon GO

Going on IGN to discuss some of Pokemon Go's newest features, Niantic's marketing lead, Archit Bhargava, went on to assure fans that the company still had plans to incorporate PvP and trading in Pokemon Go.

Mere hours after we reported on an associated leak, Gen III Pokémon have been confirmed for Pokémon GO. The app will start tracking your local weather, and then insert the weather conditions into the game.

As for what's coming next, Bhargava stated that Niantic uses December as a planning month for the next year in order to start "spec-ing out" new features and planning how to market them.

Another huge addition that will roll out this week is the new dynamic weather system. This will supposedly be geo-specific, meaning that, if it's raining or snowing in real life, those changes will be reflected in the game. 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. Not only that, but the weather conditions will also affect attacks of some Pokemon. "You will get some additional Stardust anytime you capture a Pokemon that has an affinity with current weather". "Weather will now augment that, but it's definitely not going to replace that". This weather change will also influence the characteristics of Pokemon whose behavior changes with the weather.

Ladbrokes Coral and GVC are back in "detailed" takeover talks
Houlihan Lokey and Investec are advising GVC on the deal, while Ladbrokes Coral is working with Greenhill and UBS. If the maximum stake is cut to only £50 from £100, shareholders are set to receive the maximum distribution.


Today's news joins the previous launch of generation 3 Pokemon, which added Sableye, Duskull, Dusclops, Shuppet, and Banette for Pokemon Go's Halloween event.

The latest update for Pokemon GO will go live later this week with 50 Pokemon from generation three.

Editor's Note: This article originally mentioned all Pokemon listed above as part of the initial update and has since been updated to clarify. You can find him rambling about Persona and cute animals on Twitter.
