Pokémon Go is getting a slew of new Pokémon this week as well as a dynamic weather system later this month. The game will soon reflect the real weather around you and that will affect which Pokémon you see and how strong they are. If it's raining, for example, you'll see more water-type Pokémon than usual and they'll start out with a higher CP than they typically would.
For this month of October, The Pokémon Company will be bringing more Mythical and Legendary Pokémon to Pokémon players in North America. Late last month, Darkrai was made available to mainline Pokémon games. Now, players have the chance to download Hoopa and, eventually, Volcanion and Keldeo as part of the 20th anniversary celebration of Pokémon. "Pokémon X," "Pokémon Y," "Pokémon Omega Ruby" and "Pokémon Alpha Sapphire" players who want to download Hoopa can now do so using the code 2016Hoopa in the Mystery Gift function of the games. This is actually the second time that players will have the chance to download Hoopa, since the pocket monster was made available for a limited time last fall.
"Pokémon Sun and Moon" players can certainly catch them all, even Pokémon from other titles, with the help of Pokémon Bank and Poké Transporter. The online service that was originally launched in December 2013 is getting an update that would provide support for Game Freak's upcoming games, "Pokémon Sun" and "Pokémon Moon." According to the official "Pokémon Sun and Moon" website, the Nintendo 3DS downloadable software called Pokémon Bank will be getting an update in January 2017, almost two months after "Pokémon Sun and Moon" hit the international markett on Nov. 18. Players of "Pokémon Omega Ruby," "Pokémon Alpha Sapphire," "Pokémon X" and "Pokémon Y" are surely familiar with this service as it provided them a means of transferring Pokémon from one game to another. With the update, "Pokémon Sun" and "Pokémon Moon" players will not only get the chance to move version-exclusive Pokémon, they will also be provided with a platform where they can generate their caught Pokémon from other titles into the new games.
The starter Pokémon for the upcoming Pokémon Sun and Moon games have been revealed, and they're as cute as ever. As they did with Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle in 1996's Pokémon Red and Blue, the players will be able to choose one of these three creatures at the very beginning of their quest. One of the options is Rowlet, a grass and flying-type Pokémon who looks a little bit like an owl. Rowlet's special ability is'Overgrow', and it can turn its head around 180 degrees. The second is Litten, a fire-type, who resembles a cat and spits flames at its opponents.
