Pokemon Go just added a key feature

If you are an ultimate Pokemon fan, you will know that the game feature called Trade Evolution has been one of the iconic traits of the game franchises.

According to a post on Sensor Tower, Pokemon Go was at its most profitable in 2019, generating approximately $894 million in gross player spending throughout the year.

Since its already 2020 and Pokemon GO seemed to forgotten to update their Pokemon list for more pocket monsters to catch on the wild, the augmented reality mobile game is now surely excited for the start of 2020 with this year's new unlocked batch of Pokemon available to be caught on the wild and on raids.

There are several Pokemons right now featuring in the game, but after this update, several new ones like Boldore, Gurdurr, Karrablast, Shelmet, and many more will also be lumped in the game. The second highlight of the update is the addition of new Pokemon from the Unova region.

In a blog article published on Friday, Pokemon GO disclosed it could be releasing a few Generation 5 Pokemon, which surfaced in Pokemon Black and White.


Though Trade Evolution was part of the Pokemon series because Red and Blue, using Pokemon such as Haunter, this is actually the first time that the trading mechanic has made some influence on the development process in the cell game. The difference in Pokemon GO, however, is that trade evolution is merely an optional route. Players have a chance to get Timburr, Tirtouga, Archen, and Axew from 10 km eggs. As of now, only a couple of Pokemon are eligible for trade evolution in the game. Timburr will be available in one-star raids. If you are luck you may also find the Shiny Piplup. North America, South America, and Africa can gain Throh in the wild or through 10 km eggs.

It's not bad when you consider Pokemon Go is a free download, and isn't particularly aggressive with its monetisation.

Pokemon Go just had its best year ever in 2019 - even better than its 2016 launch.

Pokemon GO is available now on iOS and Android devices.
