New Pokemon GO Update to Improve Gyms, and Help You Catch Rare Pokemon

Pokemon GO

Yay Gyms.

Niantic continues to improve the Pokemon GO app as they release new updates to enhance the experience. First up, players will now be able to earn bonuses from catching certain types of Pokemon, and this will make it a little easier to catch higher leveled creatures of the same type.

‘These new bonuses will give you a better chance of capturing Pokémon with a related type. For example, as you reach a higher tier for the Kindler Medal, your bonus to catch Fire-type Pokémon such as Charmander, Vulpix and Ponyta increases.’

There will also be an update to Gyms where players will now be able to bring in six Pokemon to train at a friendly Gym instead of just one. There’s no ETA on when these updates will be coming, but we’ll keep you updated as more info comes our way. Are you still catching Pokemon on your phone? What are your thoughts on these updates?

Pokemon GO is now available on iOS and Android devices.
