“All of the sudden, spawn rates have skyrocketed nearby – the best I’ve ever seen is a single Ivysaur that didn’t even spawn at a nest, but now there is always Tauroses and Pinsirs, as well as the occasional very rare ‘mon, as pictured,”
There are different theories why the sudden appearance of the rare Pokémon for gamers to “maintain interest in the game.” The are criticisms on Pokémon Go that it’s starting to get boring with many users who initially downloaded the game not playing it anymore, according to rumors.
The other popular update recently is the Pokemon Go buddy system wherein users can choose a specific Pokemon to be their partner while gaining kilometers to get the precious candies they can use to evolve or power up.
