Pokemon Go Claims That PvP and Trading Are Still Planned

This week starts the arrival of Gen 3 Pokemon in the new "Pokemon GO" update. Before Niantic clarified that people would have to physically be near each other to trade, some expected the trading system to be similar to the mainline Pokemon games on handhelds that allow players to trade Pokemon online.

Niantic plans to release these updates in two individual parts.

The new weather system, though? With that, the dynamic weather system, too, could change the kind of Pokemon the players are about to see.

The five different types of weather are clear (effects grass, ground, and fire spawns), foggy (effects dark and ghost spawns), rainy (effects water, electric, and bug spawns), snowy (effects ice and steel spawns), and windy (effects dragon, flying, and psychic spawns). Also, some attacks will be more effective with the matching weather condition.

Niantic has begun its roll out of the third generation of monsters in Pokemon GO with 50 critters from the Hoenn region, and more slated to come later in the year. These creatures were originated from "Pokemon Ruby" and "Pokemon Sapphire".

Though trading and PVP battles were still on the company's overall "to-do list", Bhargava pointed out that it might take a while before the features get added into the game since Niantic still has to properly investigate the feasibility of the features. Instead, they will be released gradually in due course. Although Niantic still has a lot of generations to work within the Pokemon universe, it can not introduce them all at the same time. This will supposedly be geo-specific, meaning that, if it's raining or snowing in real life, those changes will be reflected in the game.
