New Pokémon Go update adds new Pokémon, cheaper storage

Niantic announced a new update this week that will add 80 new Pokémon from the second generation of games for players to collect and battle. The update will offer cheaper storage expansion for the next two weeks. New Pokémon from Pokemon Gold, Silver and Crystal coming to the game such as Chikorita, Espeon, and Umbreon will be found in the wild. New evolutionary items and berries will be added to enhance collections and increase challenge during battles. Additional features include Nanab Berries and Pinap Berries, which trainers use to slow Pokemon to prevent them from running away and collect double the candy on successful catches respectively. There will be additional customization features for trainers as well. Buying storage space will cost 50 percent less than normal, making upgrades 100 Poke Coins or 99 cents per purchase. The discount will begin from afternoon PST on February 16 and continue through February 28. Currently, maximum capacity is set to 1,000 Pokémon and each upgrade will give players 50 more slots. It will cost player around $15 to get maximum capacity. All Pokémon Go players will have access to the update by the end of the week.

These changes were weighted against purchases made on average days versus those made on Black Friday, which carries enormous amounts of deals, discounts and bundles. Last year, the Xbox One was declared the victor by InfoScout in terms of total percentage of sales on Black Friday.
