Hey there everyone! Today I’m going to discuss the future of Pokémon Go and incorporating the new Pokémon from the various different regions and legendary Pokémon. I’m going to look at this from a fan’s point of view, as well as a business point of view since I’m in the gaming/animation business as well! lets get started!
First off, we are still in the original KANTO region with the original 150 Pokémon. The game has offered us every Pokémon available EXLUDING the following,
- and any other legendary if I’m forgetting one.
So, here’s my first thought from a Fan’s point of view. Now we all want to beat the game and capture every Pokémon, so we all know we need the legendaries to do that. We all saw Mewtwo in the trailer for the game. So how and when exactly will we get that? Well, here is from a business point of view!
Niantic knows weve been demanding them lol. Oh, yeah they’ve known since the beginning before anyone even beat the game. They’re plotting over there believe me. Here is what I personally think alright. So, as for the legendaries right, remember in the original Pokémon games for the Gameboy and DS how there were special “events” to get certain things? I remember in order to get Jirachi and Deoxys , you had to enter a special event where you were allowed access to capture them, and that was the ONLY way to capture them!
So I believe Niantic is going host these special events at certain places around the world where you will have to PAY in order to access the chance to capture them. And if you fail, you end up having to pay again. And of course, it’ll be a LIMITED time only event. Paying either with Poke Coins or of course, your actual real money.
I also believe, they’re going to space them out as a way to stall. Stall for what exactly you might ask? Well, they’re stalling so they have enough time to create the next region of Pokémon, JOHTO. 3D modeling characters take time, as well creating sound design and programming and animating them for us to enjoy as a game. So, I do believe they’re going to do this for EVERY SINGLE REGION until Gamefreak runs out of Pokémon to give us ( which will never happen, lets be real lol).
So yes, Pokémon Go is here to stay for at least another 10 years if people give up and rage quit playing. Currently I’m only level 21….and making progress is ridiculously time consuming unless you’re constantly walking and catching Pokémon. Anyways, expect updates from Niantic as they’re trying to give us the best experience possible. Yes, it is a business at the end of the day but hey, were catching Pokémon around the world! Enjoy the game everyone! Let me know what you all think as well.
