‘Pokemon Go’ evolves with 50 new Pokemon and dynamic weather effects

After debuting the first batch of Generation 3 Pokemon during the Halloween event in October, Niantic announced on Wednesday that several new Pokemon from the Hoenn region will be arriving in-game later this week, with even more set to arrive in the coming weeks. In addition to the new Pokemon, Niantic is also introducing real-world weather into the game, which will affect gameplay in a variety of interesting ways going forward.

The arrival of Generation 3 Pokemon has been anticipated by fans for nearly a year, with the rollout of Generation 2 having taken place way back in February of this year. The Generation 3 creatures were first introduced in Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire, which launched in 2002 on the Game Boy Advance.
