Castform and Deoxys are the first 2 Pokemon that were given different forms depending on certain attributes. Making it a challenge for Niantic to add such Pokemon into the game. While not all generation 3 Pokemon are in the game yet. It will be hard to tell which ones will become the Ditto, Smeargle, and Delibird of generation 3.
Some would have guess Pokemon such as one that has several forms would be excluded from the game for a decent amount of time. However, a recent look at the games APK suggests that Castform and Deoxys will be in the game relatively soon.
Niantic recently mentioned that Mewtwo will soon be retiring from EX raids. Though, 2 more legendaries will take its place. While Castform isn’t a legendary Pokemon, Deoxys is. It would be very odd to see Castform in EX raids, honestly a little degrading is the passes are handed out as often as Mewtwo’s.
Could Deoxys be one of the legendary Pokemon replacing Mewtwo? Yes, it very well could be, though, based on the legendaries from Generations 1 and 2 that still need an appearance. Niantic really should hold off on adding any generation 3 Pokemon to their list of EX raid bosses.
As for Castform. It’s speculated that you will be able to find this Pokemon in any weather condition that correlates to its form. Castform has 4 forms so it will probably be as common as Pidgey, Weedle, and all those fun Pokemon. Here are the codes for Castform and Deoxys that were recently found.
- “form_normal” “Normal”
- “form_sun” “Sunny”
- “form_rain” “Rainy”
- “form_snow” “Snowy”
- “form_defense” “Defense
- “form_attack” “Attack”
- “form_speed” “Speed”
- “form_deoxys_normal” “Normal”
As far as how good Castform will be in battles, it will most likely depend on its form. Castform was able to change its form depending on the weather. This means, hopefully, Niantic has introduced a Pokemon that will be different according to the weather patterns that surround it.
Whenever it’s raining outside. Every Castform you have caught or come across will be in its rain form. Though, it’s it’s nice and sunny out. The Castform you have in your Pokemon storage will turn into its sunny form, even if they were caught in the rain.

Pokemon GO Introduce Daily Bonuses To Pokestops
Pokemon Go was released a year and a half ago! At this point in the games life cycle, you would think one of the most important parts of the game would be working properly and have all the tweaks in needs finalized. Though, that isn’t the case. However, it does appear Niantic is changing them daily, or even weekly.
The Pokestops are Pokemon Go’s major features that are used in order to collect items which allows you to “progress” further into the game. When the game was first released. Trainers quickly realized the importance of these stops and request for more if their towns didn’t have plenty.
The loot table for these photospins did have a lot of items until generation 2 came out. Once that happened we saw new barries along with 5 evolution items used to evolve certain Pokemon in the game. Pokestops have been seen to favor items. Sometimes it would last for a day, sometimes it would last longer.
For all we know, Niantic is testing something pretty fun and interesting. Anyone who has played Trove or other games that hold these daily bonuses would know. In Trove, there are set days for certain bonuses. For example every Tuesday, there is a bonus for gathering materials.
This is a feature Niantic could add for Pokestops. Each day could be an increased bonus for certain items which we will go over shortly. Some may not like this, however, knowing that you have a good chance of collecting items you need would be motivating to get out and hit the stops. Continue Reading…
