It’s been two months since Pokemon Go launched in Singapore, but we don’t blame you if you’re nowhere near completing your Pokedex. After all, not all of us can be the best like no one ever was, and besides, the title of Singapore’s first Pokemon Master already went to Chapman Sim.
Buuuuuuuuut, if you’re still missing that Dragonite or Snorlax or Alakazam, the next update should make things much easier for you. According to the Pokemon Go website, Niantic will be rolling out a feature that gives players a catch bonus whenever they earn a medal based on Pokemon types:
“We are adding a new feature which grants a catch bonus when you earn medals based on catching certain types of Pokémon (Kindler, Psychic, Gardener, etc.). 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’s been much talk about the sharp decline of Pokemon Go players since about a month ago, but we’re guessing this update might just be incentive enough for players to go back into the game?
