A new dynamic weather system for Pokemon Go will come into play starting December. This page covers everything we know about the new system.


  • Weather in Pokemon Go will reflect weather in your area in real time. If it’s raining in town, it will rain in-game.
  • Weather will increase certain Pokemon spawns, for example, Water-type Pokemon will appear more frequently during rain.
  • Those Pokemon will also give 25% more Stardust when captured and can have higher CP.
  • There are no weather exclusives.
  • Attacks will do more damage depending on the weather.
  • These benefits will apply to Raid Bosses as well.
  • There will be no negative changes due to weather. Fire-type moves won’t do less when it’s raining but Water-type moves will receive a buff.
Weather Types Affected
Fog Dark, Ghost
Clear/Sun Grass, Ground, Fire
Snow Ice, Steel
Rain Water, Bug, Electric
Wind Dragon, Flying, Psychic
Clouds Unknown as of yet.

We will keep this page updated as more information about weather is released.

Along with weather, 50 new Generation 3 Pokemon from Hoenn are also being added to Pokemon Go.
