Pokemon GO to feature capture bonuses to increase odds of catching rare Pokemon
According to developer Niantic, the new feature, which is likely to be added in the next update, will provide a catch bonus when players earn medals based on catching certain types of Pokemon like Kindler, Psychic, Gardener and so on.
Also, Niantic explained that if a Pokemon belongs to multiple types, the bonus will be the average of bonuses for each type. So, if a Pokemon is both Normal and Flying, the bonus would be the average of the player's Normal-type and Flying-type bonuses.
Aside from the sneak peek of the new feature, the developers also announced their Pokemon GO is now available in 31 more countries.
So, beginning early October, Android and iOS users will be able to download the game in the following countries: Kenya, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Rwanda, Seychelles, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, Chad, Gabon, Sao Tome and Principe, Egypt, Morocco, Botswana, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Benin, Burkina Faso, Cape Verde, Cote d’Ivoire, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea-Bissau, Liberia, Mauritania, Niger, Sierra Leone, and Togo.
