The Next Pokémon GO Update Makes Catching Rare Pokémon A Little Easier

Niantic has announced that there’s a brand new update in the works for the immensely popular Pokémon GO on mobile platforms. The latest update will make catching rare monsters a little easier this time around. You can read the proposed changes, below.

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.

      1. Doesn’t that kinda take away the big feeling of achievement and being able to show your friends what you caught after such hard work of adventuring everywhere to catch one?

  1. When they can sort out the lack of Pokemon in rural areas then I might log in again. At the moment it’s just a battery drainer for caterpies and pidgeys.

  2. Since english is not my first language I don’t understant the meaning of this article. That bonus means rare pokemon appear more frequently OR if you are trying to catch a rare pokemon you have more chances to achieve it.

    1. You have a higher chance of catching it in each Pokeball. That means you won’t have to throw as many Pokeballs to capture it.
