The weather update will be released towards the end of December.Pokemon Go launched its most awaited Update of Generation 3 with one major addition.Pokemon Go this week is getting a dynamic weather system that will impact how you play and a slew of new Pokemon from the Pokemon Ruby and Pokemon Sapphire video games, developer Niantic announced today.
Starting sometime later this week, the view of the game will start to reflect what the actual weather looks like near players, according to Niantic. More importantly, the weather will also impact Pokemon in the area.
“For example, you’ll find your odds of discovering Mudkip splashing around will greatly improve on rainy days, as certain Pokémon types will be more commonly found during various weather conditions,” according to a blog post on the changes. “Additionally, attacks of certain types will be more effective during some weather conditions, so a Charizard’s Fire Spin will perform better on sunny days”.
In a press release, Niantic says that the weather will also allow players to sometimes earn more Stardust after catching a Pokemon.Also, weather condition will highly affect the spawn rate of Pokemon.
Foggy Weather type will provide boosted to DARK and GHOST
DARK species affected:
Houndour and Houndoom
Poochyena and Mightyena
Shiftry and Nuzleaf
Carvanha and Sharpedo
GHOST species affected:
Gastly, Haunter, Gengar
Shuppet and Banette
Duskull and Dusclops
The way Slemon and Archit Bhargava, global product marketing lead at Niantic, described the weather system is that its impact will be most deeply felt by serious gym battlers who use the effects to “sort of min-max their teams.” But players who live in more stable, predictable climates will also be able to gain something from the update.
“Everyone is always in a steady state of whatever the local geography is,” Slemon said. “So if you have a large number of different climates, you’ll have a large number of different map states. If you have consistent weather, you’re in a region that’s going to over time develop much stronger Pokémon of those types.”
Snow is on the way, at least for those of us in colder, Northern areas, so be prepared for your Ice-types to see a big boost over the next few months. The update applies not just to gen-three Pokémon, but to every monster in Pokémon Go.
And there are more updates to look forward to on the way, teased Bhargava. A big holiday update is in the works, with more details to be shared “soon.As we can clearly see Niantic is actively expanding the Pokemon GO development team to build many more amazing updates in 2018.“Stay tuned for news next week about upcoming improvements to certain features.” and as a trainer, I hope we get something much better than a global event.What are your thoughts?Lemme hear you guys out in the comments or you can get connected with me on Snapchat-Vibsz16 and Instagram.

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.
