Niantic announced a cou­ple of new updates for Poké­mon Go, which includes a weath­er sys­tem and sev­er­al Poké­mon from the Hoenn Region. For those who don’t know, Hoenn is from Poké­mon Sap­phire and Poké­mon Ruby versions.

Start­ing lat­er this week, Poké­mon Go play­ers will be see­ing Treecko, Torchic, Mud­kip, along with sev­er­al oth­ers from the Sap­phire and Ruby games. Niantic also stat­ed there will be “even more to be dis­cov­ered over the next sev­er­al weeks.”

Poké­mon Go is also updat­ing with a dynam­ic weath­er sys­tem, which will affect sev­er­al mechan­ics in the game. When play­ers dis­cov­er, catch, and inter­act with Poké­mon, the weath­er will play a hand in all of it. Niantic urged Train­ers to “pay atten­tion to your local weath­er pat­terns”, as it will impact the Pokémon.

For exam­ple, if you are try­ing to find the new Mud­kip, your chances will be increased if it is rain­ing out. Mean­while, cer­tain types of Poké­mon will be more com­mon to come across dur­ing var­i­ous weath­er con­di­tions. Also, attacks of cer­tain types of Poké­mon will be affect­ed by the weath­er. Niantic’s exam­ple is  Charizard’s Fire Spin, which will be more effec­tive dur­ing sun­ny days.
