It’s Pokemon GO nest migration time again, every mobile fan’s favorite or least favorite period of the month. To spice things up for the mobile game, Niantic switches the locations of various Pokemon so the title feels fresh. Results from this are pretty mixed, but they do usually lead to new Pokemon for certain players in specific areas.
The Silph Road confirmed that the mid-April nest migration has begun, so players will be waking up to new Pokemon. One fan even confirmed that they got a Mr. Mime, something that was a bit rare for the area. As usual, the results will vary and some players will be happier than others, but there’s no denying that it keeps the game interesting.
Changes Thus Far
Early reactions to the Pokemon GO nest migration have been interesting, with fans finding new monsters in their area. An avid fan stated that the Clefairy nest is now a Kabuto one, so that’s an interesting swap story. Other fans were able to catch some good Pokemon like Onix, Abra and Chikorita, so there are plenty of positives.
Sadly, there are also negative reactions to the migration, since this can result in an increase of common Pokemon, rather than a decrease. Poliwag, Ledyba and Hoothoot have started appearing more often for one player, which isn’t that great. While Poliwag does have a new Gen 2 evolution, an overdose of that Pokemon can get fans tired quickly.
You Win Some, You Lose Some
While the Pokemon GO nest migration won’t please everyone, there’s always a new one that will change things up again. These only last for two weeks, so fans should enjoy the new Pokemon they get, or use the opportunity to travel and get rarer monsters. Hopefully, most players will get more than a few new monsters in their party, maybe even getting an evolution or two.
Once the Easter event ends, it seems like these nest migrations will be the most exciting thing about the game. Until another one comes along, all mobile players can do is catch Pokemon and travel with their friends, which is the game’s goal. The fact that the game still has plenty of fans is impressive, since it stopped being a worldwide phenomenon sometime after it was released.
Pokemon GO is available now on iOS and Android devices as a free download. A gym overhaul has been confirmed, which a lot of fans are interested in.
