According to the Pokémon GO Twitter account, trainers will discover more Pokémon in previously lesser populated areas. "Trainers, we've observed increased numbers of Pokémon sightings in parks and other outdoor locations in urban and rural areas."
One of the most frustrating things about Pokémon GO is well, finding Pokémon - if you don't live in a rural area where PokéStops are few and far between. As players well know, Pokémon tends to gather at notable landmarks and more densely populated areas, which is, of course, a problem for trainers who don't live near such locations.
Niantic didn't expand on the tweet with specific countries, so all we know is that more Pokémon can be found, and that it's effective immediately. Trainers in both hemispheres are entering the season where playing Pokémon GO might prove difficult. South Africa is now in its hottest season, and walking great distances to find a Pokémon or to hatch a second generation egg could be a very exhausting ordeal. Trainers in the northern hemisphere have to combat cold weather and snow to catch Pokémon - lucky for them that Niantic announced the Starbucks partnership earlier this month.
Have you had any luck catching Togepi, Pichu, and the Pokémon wearing a festive hat?
