We are excited to tell you about the new Pokemon GO update rolling in soon. Niantic is adding this feature, as part of the new update, to allow catching rare Pokemon easier. If you catch many Pokemon of the same type, you’re chance of catching that type of Pokemon will increase.

Pokemon GO Update will give you more bonus for catching Pokemon


We want to give you a sneak peek of a feature coming soon to Pokémon GO. We are adding a new feature which grants a catch bonus when you earn medals based on catching certain types of Pokémon (Kindler, Psychic, Gardener, etc.). These new bonuses will give you a better chance of capturing Pokémon with a related type. For example, as you reach a higher tier for the Kindler Medal, your bonus to catch Fire-type Pokémon such as Charmander, Vulpix and Ponyta increases.

Trainers can work their way to a new tier by catching many Pokémon of the same type. If a Pokémon has multiple types, your bonus will be the average of your bonuses for each type. For example, Pidgey is both Normal and Flying type. Your bonus in this case would be the average of your Normal-type and Flying-type bonuses.”

So, if you have a Water/ Psychic type and one medal is bronze while the other is gold, then overall it will average out. So, if one bonus is two and the other is three, then it should be 2.5. This is really awesome because some Pokemon are really hard to catch, hence dubbed rare.

Let us know what you think of this new Pokemon GO update. Stay tuned to MoibPicker for more news related to the updates of this game as well as other. You can read the rest of the update sneak peek on Niantic’s site.
