The health regained from a distant berry will be less than that from actually returning to the gym but it's a convenient addition.Other small but convenient changes include the ability to see which gym you've placed your Pokemon in via its stat screen and your journal will now tell you how many Pokecoins a Pokemon has garnered when you withdraw it from a gym.Called Groudon, this ground-type Pokemon will be available to catch for the next 30 days (until January 15) in Raids at Gyms worldwide.Taking on Groudon won't be easy but with the game's new weather system coming into play you may find that conditions which boost your grass and water attacks are favorable.The expansion into generation 2 Johto region Pokémon was the first of three major updates planned for this year according to Niantic CEO John Hanke.
Trading was a key component in the original games so it makes sense that Niantic plans to bring it to Pokemon Go.
Pokémon Go has been out for a long time now, and while the app has progressed a lot in this time - just remember how unstable the servers when it launched - there's still lots more work to be done.
Some of these features are ones that developer Niantic spoke about prior to the release of the game, while others have been promised since the game's release.
Though Hanke didn't detail what exactly these update would be, we at Tech Radar guessed they would involve player-versus-player battling, trading and commercial partnerships.
Since then, commercial partnerships with companies like Starbucks have already happened and Niantic has confirmed that both player-versus-player battling and trading will be coming to Pokemon Go in the future.
