A lot of Pokemon GO information has only been confirmed through gameplay leaks that take place during the beta, showing just how popular the Pokemon franchise is. Now one of the game’s beta testers, or field testers as the developers call them, has decided to answer some of the frequently asked questions about the game and different features of Pokemon go account.
One of the gameplay details the field tester confirmed was that a number of the ingress portals were turned into. These are important for the game’s rural areas since they act as item portals, allowing players to get a rare item if they’re lucky enough.
The tester also confirmed that the current build of the game would only have the original 150 Pokemon, as creatures like Onyx and Lickitung have no evolution shard count. It’s possible that a future update of the game will add more Pokemon from the other generations, but for now, it seems like the main game will just have the aforementioned 150 since most fans grew up with them.
Another interesting tidbit that the tester revealed about Pokemon GO was about the Pokemon that come from eggs. While the Pokemon that come from them aren’t rare, they are actually stronger than most wild Pokemon in the game, which is interesting, to say the least.
Players will be able to throw Pokeballs in a variety of ways, as revealed by the field tester. They should be careful though as a wild Pokemon can actually deflect Pokeballs. Apparently, mobile players will have to get a good position for throwing the Pokeballs while also watching the various animations of the Pokemon so they can know when it would be a good time to throw a Pokeball.
The most interesting tidbit revealed was about Eevee. The Pokemon is apparently difficult to find and hard to catch. The tester wasn’t able to evolve Eevee yet, so it’s not yet clear if all of its evolutions from the original 150 will be in the game.
Interestingly enough, Pikachu, Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle are also hard to find in Pokemon GO. It seems like the developers are making sure fan favorites are hard to come by. Pokemon GO currently has no release date, but it will be coming to iOS and Android.
