Niantic parent company of the most famous AR game Pokemon Go has been seriously updating Pokemon Go in recent times.Pokemon Go has seen many updates in recent times, which changed alot of things in the game.
Pokemon Go has seen mountains and valleys till now. The recent update of Pokemon Go was revoked by Niantic as it consisted of many crashing bugs with other smaller but persistent issues.
The most recent change was in that of Legendary Raid pattern.Players on Reddit mentioned there had been a massive drop in Legendary raid drop.Players said it was seen that Niantic is no longer providing as many Legendary raids they did before.
Pokemon Go Player _whatevs_ mentions,”Where I live there are four gyms on my radar, and there used to be about one legendary raid per gym per day. Ours is a small community of players; we always struggle to find enough people to raid. We post almost every raid that pops up in a messaging group. We’ve noticed that this past week or so, the frequency has dropped to about 1/day, and there were two days where not even once.”
Player sobrique mentions,”I’m seeing the same. Which is annoying, because we only just got Raikou, which is the best of the bunch.”
Trainer siamkor adds,”Yeah, it sucks. We get one our less at the end of the day for raids due to Niantic ignoring DST, then we get 15 minutes less at the end of the raids (and consequently at the end of the day) due to Niantic changing the raid timer, and now we get even fewer raids.Honestly, I’m expecting them to nerf the premier balls to half the current amount and reduce Raikou’s base catch rate to 0,5% before the week is over, just to show us who’s in charge.”
Also recently, fans had noticed that the PokeStop item drops had changed, providing a few more than the usual in October.
This change in drop rate was a significant boost for players who use the app daily, as it can reduce the grind somewhat and help to avoid using up PokeCoins.However, since Pokemon Go updated to newer version, it appears that Niantic has deployed another patch which has changed item drop rate.
According to players and communities, potions and revives have become pretty rare drops from PokeStops. They can still be picked up from Gyms, and it appears that the Niantic may have taken note of some emerging trends.
Trainers who are just there to catch Pokemon can now head to their nearest PokeStops to stock up PokeBalls, and those who are more interested in taking over Gyms and playing Raids can still grab everything necessary too.
No official announcement has been made by Niantic, who usually stay quiet on these small-scale changes until they become fully incorporated.One player on community page commented “After a week of receiving zero potions or revives from Pokestops, I now receive very few – probably consistent with the findings here,”
“I’m quite happy with the distribution now. I still get some from the Pokestop I spin all day at work – and get plenty more from gyms and raids at other times.”But while this makes sense for a lot of Trainers, those who live in rural areas will be hoping to get as many items as possible from a few places they have.
Some trainers mentioned this is an intended change while some disagreed. Also recently it was seen that Niantic imposed a soft ban on players as when a trainer presses “leave” after defeating one Pokemon.Community players came together as Soft-bans started to take place, there was some reason spotted that why would a player press “leave” after defeating one Pokemon.
But if you consider all these conditions, soft-bans would least affect the shaver trainers and would pose an effect on legit players. As the community of players came together for these soft-bans Niantic should look into this issue.It’s also a chance these soft-bans are the result of faulty update that Niantic rolled out.
However, many of players communities aren’t happy with the changes. Many Pokemon Go players have pointed out that they need the full 60 minutes to get enough players to do a raid, and that the crowds often didn’t come out until the very end of the raid window. While the smaller raid timer might benefit players who need “random” players to fill out their raid teams, it doesn’t precisely help players who are organizing via Discord or Facebook.

10 Gen 3 Pokemon That Are As Strong As Legendary Pokemon
Here is the list of Top 10 Gen 3 Pokemon That Are As Strong As Legendary Pokemon, and can help any player to capture and attack gyms.
Number 10 – Milotic
MAX CP- 2542
ATTACK – 60
DEFENSE – 79
STAMINA – 190
Milotic is an aquatic, serpentine Pokémon with a primarily cream-colored body. It has red eyes with long, pinkish antennae above them. Additionally, there are long, hair-like fins above its eyes, which begin thin and thicken towards the tips. These eyebrows extend to almost half of Milotic’s body length and will be longer on the female than the male. On top of its relatively small head is a straight spike. The tail consists of four large, blue fins with pink ovals in their centers. Each of the tail fins overlaps the next slightly, causing it to resemble a fan. While it has not been depicted, Milotic’s scales are said to change color depending on the viewing angle.
Number 9 – Flygon
MAX CP- 2458
ATTACK – 100
DEFENSE – 80
STAMINA – 160
Flygon resembles a slightly insectoid, bipedal dragon. It is primarily light green and has a pair of large rhombus-shaped wings with a red trim, toeless hind legs, and skinny arms with three-clawed hands. Its tail has several dark green stripes and three small green rhombus shapes with red trims at the end. It has large eyes and a pair of green antennae that point back. The eyes have red covers that prevent sand from getting into its eyes. With its wings, it kicks up sandstorms to hide. Its wings make a “singing” sound when they are flapped, earning Flygon the name “The Desert Spirit”. It lives in the desert.
Number 8 – Gardevoir
MAX CP- 2341
ATTACK – 65
DEFENSE – 65
STAMINA – 136
Beginning its life as Ralts (the Pokemon that kinda looks like male genitalia), it’s a little surprising it turns into Gardevoir – who looks a lot like some kind of elegant dancer (and a lot of other things, if you dare to venture into Google Image Search – which reminds us: NEVER GOOGLE IMAGE SEARCH ANY POKEMON EVER BUT ESPECIALLY NOT GARDEVOIR). Apart from its traumatic internet legacy, it’s a pretty solid Pokemon (now one of the added Fairy-types), and its Pokedex entries indicate that it would do anything to protect its trainer. Always nice to know your Pokemon has Stockholm’s Syndrome.
