Dynamic Weather Gaming & Battle Parties Explained

Dynamic Weather Gaming & Battle Parties Explained -

The Pokemon Go site has been updated with developer insights into new features coming to the game in the near future. These include dynamic weather gameplay, the increased Pokemon storage and the formation of battle parties. 

When the weather system rolls out, players will see local weather conditions mirrored in the game. As a result, certain Pokemon will be more likely to turn up during weather effects that suits them the most.

We want changes in weather to have an impact on your gameplay experience. When it’s raining outside, the game world will match the real-world conditions. You’ll see rain falling from the sky and Water-type Pokémon appearing much more frequently, but that’s not all. While it’s raining, the Water-type Pokémon you catch in the wild or through Raid Battles will award more Stardust and have greater potential in battle. You’ll also be able to use your local weather patterns to your advantage in Gym battles and Raid Battles, as some move types will be more effective during certain weather conditions. We’re incredibly excited for you to experience this new dynamic weather gameplay system as it starts rolling out to Trainers around the world.

Players will be able to form Battle Parties of up to six players for "quick access when participating in Gym battles and Raid Battles". This feature will be in beta when it is released into the game so that players will have input on how it ultimately rolls out.

Lastly, Pokemon Storage can be increased from 1,000 to 1,500 by purchasing upgrades from the game shop.
