The development team behind Pokemon Go has brought in some massive and much needed changes to the game that will directly impact the overall gameplay. Firstly, the developer has made adjustments to the combat power of number of Pokemon. According to the Niantic, the change in the combat power of numerous Pokemon will allow a more balanced and competitive battling and training experience in Gyms.
Niantic provided the example: “Some Pokemon such as Alakazam, Rhydon, Gengar will have their CP increased. Others will have their CP lowered.” In addition to this, Niantic also promised to keep adjusting the CP in coming days in order to improve the game balance when necessary.
In another news, Niantic has announced a double XP and Stardust event as a Thank You gift from developer to the Pokemon Go community. Niantic said: “Starting November 23rd at 00:00 UTC and going through November 30th 00:00 UTC, we will double the amount of XP and Stardust you receive when completing in-game actions.”
Last but not the least, Niantic has expanded the Nearby feature to some new areas after reviewing the feedback from the players. The developer changed to feature to only show the Nearby feature if a Pokestop is close to player’s location. In addition, the developer also made changes to the way Sightings now works.
