Pokemon GO is popular now as it was when it first came out, but it seems like drastic changes have been made to make the game more unpredictable. It used to be easy to spot some of the rare spawn nests, but it seems like Niantic is going to change their locations soon. It might not be a popular move, but it does make sure fans go out and explore more.
Niantic shuffled the Pokemon in several nest locations, so it could have an Eevee for 1-2 weeks and a Scyther the next. Apparently, Niantic has done this on purpose so that players could discover new Pokemon and continue exploring a number of areas with friends. There were a few nests that spawned rare Pokemon such as Dratini, but that has been fixed in recent weeks, since it made it really easy for some players to farm candies for a Dragonite, who is supposed to be a rare Pokemon.
These rare spawn nests won’t disappear, but it seems like they won’t always have rare Pokemon anymore. Considering how overpowered some Pokemon GO players are over others, this might not be such a bad move. While it will still be hard to get a Dragonite or a Charizard, it does encourage players to be more adventurous and explore areas for new Pokemon.
It will be interesting to see how the community reacts to the spawn nest changes, should they come. The developers in Niantic recently released an update for the game, but that doesn’t mean that fans shouldn’t expect certain changes to be made, though the nests are already pretty random. It even feels like the game prefers certain players over others, but that’s a different story for another time.
Will we see massive changes to the spawn nests this week? It’s definitely possible, though we won’t know until Niantic says something. Until an announcement is made, fans should carry on with their Pokemon adventures.
Pokemon GO is available now on iOS and Android. The game is a free download for both devices but also has an in-game store that requires real-life money for certain purchases.
