It's obvious at this point that Pokémon GO is very much a work in progress. Aside from addressing the server issues the game still suffers from weeks after release, it's been said in the past that the game will eventually see trading, expanded gyms and Pokéstops, and new Pokémon. Granted, all of this has yet to come to fruition, but dataminers have recently uncovered details that could potentially point to what we might be seeing next.
The details come via Pokémon Fortress -- a fan site dedicated to Pokémon GO -- so bear in mind that this should all be taken with a grain of salt. Here's what's been found:
- The Trainer Level Cap is 40.
- Egg's cap at Level 20, so if you get an Egg at Level 37 it'll still hatch at the same quality as if you were level 20.
- Wild Pokemon cap at Level 30, meaning after Level 30 everyone will find the same max CP Pokemon and it'll be a matter of spending the candy and stardust to upgrade them to your level's cap based on their CP arc.
- There is an achievement/badge rank above gold.
- Curveballs and Accurate Throws (Nice, Great, Etc) help with the capture chance of a Pokeball throw.
- There may be future Incubators that reduce the amount of kilometers needed before they hatch.
- Moves have an Accuracy and a Critical Hit Rate.
- Each unique Pokemon has it's own Capture and Flee rate.
- Move Damage may go up with Trainer Level.
- Pokemon become harder to catch as you level up.
- Mewtwo, Moltres, Zapdos, Articuno are Legendary.
- Mew is Mythic.
- The Charge Meter is filled 0.5 for each 1 HP of damage dealt.
- To level from 39 to 40 takes five million experience, and going from 1 to 40 takes twenty million.
- Pokemon have a base Attack, Defense and Stamina (HP) - thus they do not have a Attack and Special Attack stat like in the 3DS games.
- Dragonite has the strongest base attack for non-legends, at 250.
- Mewtwo has a base attack of 284.
- Moltres has the highest base attack of the three legendary birds.
- Articuno has the highest base defense of the three.
- Zapdos is almost as high as Moltres in base attack but is likely lower due to Type Advantage.
- Pokemon have an evolution modifier and an HP modifier. When the Pokémon evolves, both CP and HP go up a set multiplier.
- Defending Pokemon at a Gym attack the player's Pokémon every 1.5 seconds.
- The Master Ball is in the game.
- The Legendary Pokemon do have a spawn rate, but no capture rate.
- STAB is present in the game, giving a 25% Bonus to an attack move.
What do you think? How will Legendary Pokémon be handled in the future? Do you think you'll ever make it to level 40? Drop us a comment in the section below
