Some of the Generation 3 Pokemon were just added to Pokemon GO in the new update! Many other new features were released as well like real-time weather, a new Item, and new shiny Pokemon!
List of all Gen 3 Pokemon available now!
- Mawile – Raid Battle Exclusive
- Plusle – North America, South America, and Africa
- Minun – Europe, Asia, and Australia
- Zangoose – North America, South America, and Africa
- Seviper – Europe, Asia, and Australia
- Absol – Raid Battle Exclusive
One of the biggest features added in the update is the new weather mechanic. This feature takes live weather data and causes your in-game experience to change based on the conditions in real life. Below is a list with all the possible weather conditions and their effects:
What do the boosts do?
If a certain type of Pokemon is boosted due to a weather effect, then they will have increased spawns, give more stardust upon capture, and have higher IV’s then normal. Not all Pokemon that spawn during weather conditions are because of the weather. If they spawned because of the weather they will have a small aura around them and an icon above their CP in battle.
Two new shiny Pokemon have been made available in this update. Both are raid boss exclusive Pokemon so it makes them very difficult to capture, much less find shiny. They are Absol and Mawile:
A new item has been found in the code, yet is not available yet and that item is Star Piece. This item will act like a lucky egg except it will boost stardust instead of XP.
New Party feature
When in your Pokemon menu you now have the option to create a party for battle. When you enter into a gym to battle it or fight in a raid battle then the team that is currently entered into your party will be the Pokemon that you use in battle.
Regional Exclusive Pokemon
There are four new regional exclusive Pokemon in this update.
