50 Gen 3 Pokemon Confirmed for Pokemon Go

Niantic has confirmed 50 Gen 3 Pokemon for their mobile hit Pokemon Go. More Pokemon are planned to be added to the game in the future.

It is happening boys and girls! Pokemon GO has officially confirmed that 50 monsters from Gen 3 will be available on the Pokemon GO app. The news of Gen 3 Pokemon was leaked earlier and the whistleblower for this leak is the iOS App Store displaying Gen 3 monsters.

A similar leak happened right before the Pokemon GO’s Halloween event where some Gen 3 monsters were featured too.  Many Pokemon from the Hoenn region are now ready to be found, caught and collected in Pokemon GO including Treecko, Torchic, and Mudkip. If this does not blow the roof over your head then get this, Pokemon can now be discovered in “real world weather” and more Pokemon from the Hoenn region are expected to arrive in the coming weeks.

The dynamic weather gameplay introduced by Niantic, Inc., and the Pokemon Company International will allow Trainers to interact with Pokemon based on their local weather conditions.

This is the first time ever that a reality mobile game will allow for the real-time weather to have an impact on the gameplay experience. The weather impact on the gameplay will affect Pokemon habitats and where they can be found, increasing Combat Power and earning more Stardust.

Apart from this the weather will create aesthetically pleasing scenarios in the game. Trainers can expect to see Mudkip splashing when it rains or Cacnea basking in the sun.

The likelihood of catching Pokemon in their preferred weather conditions will increase thus Trainers will be able to learn a lot about their local ecology and progress in the game at the same time. Players will see different Pokemon appearing as the season changes thereby making the gameplay fresh and exciting.

This new outlook of the game is sure to bring fans back in action and perhaps this time it won’t be easy walking away. What do you think of the new Gen 3 Pokemon? What other Pokemon would you like to see on Pokemon Go.
