Some major changes are coming to Niantic’s Pokémon Go and I am all for it. When the update drops you will be able to team up with your friends and take on super powerful Pokemon throughout your neighborhood. Unfortunately, the update won’t feature one thing we have been all waiting for which is player vs player battles. Also within this update players will be able to access gyms more easily.
The update is currently dropping for select players now and it will continue to roll out to all remaining player throughout the weeks. A new system will be a part of the update called Motivation. As the defending Gyms, Pokémon continues to try to defend the gym their motivation will drop and as their motivation drops so does that CP. So even if you are unsuccessful from beating the Pokémon, you can still take a chunk out of their motivation. The owners will be able to increase the motivation by feeding the Pokémon with Berries.
As more updates come up, we will continue to keep you all updated! Let us know in the comment section below if you’re still playing Pokémon Go!
