Niantic also changed up so called Pokemon spawn points. While nests are producing many of the same type of Pokemon, spawn point only have a single Pokemon appear on a predictable basis. Nick from Trainer Tips is explaining Pokemon spawn points in his latest video tutorial you can watch below.
The new migration brought a whole more randomness to where Pokemon nests and spawn points are and what type of Pokemon spawn there. The SilphRoad nest atlas recorded close to 3,000 new nests in the first 24 hours of the 3rd migration.
In related news, the run on the Pokemon Go Plus on September 16 was incredible. The Pokemon Go Plus Bluetooth gadget has sold out within 24 hours. Right now there is still no way to buy a Pokemon Go Plus online and in stores. It is completely sold out. Nintendo will be releasing the next wave of Pokemon Go Plus end of October.
We have one Pokemon Go Plus that ships end of this month. You can win a Pokemon Go Plus in our Pokemon Go Plus Give Away. There only two days left to enter.
The Pokemon Go hype is definitely over. The remaining trainers are still a huge community, but Pokemon Go has now slipped to 3rd place in the top grossing apps on iTunes.
Niantic CEO John Hanke has recently said that he believes Pokemon Go will be around for years to come. There will be soon real world social events that glue the trainer community together. At these events new generations of Pokemon come to live. The journey of Pokemon Go has just begun. We will see if Niantic can keep the augmented reality game relevant over the winter.
