Pokémon Go is a popular augmented reality game developed by Niantic for iOS and Android devices that is trending very fast. Here’s the latest update about the Pokémon Go. Pokémon Go gets a new Pokémon named Lucky Pokémon.
This Pokémon is recently introduced in the Pokémon World. Lucky Pokémon is a special status that Pokémon’s can have to them. The update says:
When Pokémon are traded, there is a chance that both traded Pokémon become Lucky Pokémon.
What actually are they? Is Shiny Pokémon similar to Lucky Pokémon?
The Shiny Pokémon have a different color, like tapping on your 398th Dratini, you will find that it’s bright pink instead of the standard blue. Likewise, with Aron, it has red eyes instead of blue.
The newly introduced Lucky Pokémon does not look any different keeping aside the shiny background. They have a functional advantage i.e. powering them up requires less stardust. By this, you can make them stronger and with less work.
How to get these Lucky Pokémon?
We can get them by trading. The non-Lucky Pokémon have a chance to become Lucky Pokémon with the help of trading from one player to another. According to Niantic, the developer of Pokémon Go, the odds of a Pokémon becoming “lucky” after a trade increases based on how long ago it was originally caught.
Trading updates in Pokémon Go
Along with the introduction of Lucky Pokémon, there are some more updates to look for like;
- You can give nicknames to your friend
- XP is introduced for sending gifts to friends
- You can send stardust as a gift
- You can also delete gift from your inventory
When is the Lucky Pokémon release date?
With the update still rolling out, it’s likely to get released by the end of this week (Friday, July 27th).
Lucky Pokémon is now a category in the Pokédex. This is also a clever way to get players to care about trading even after they’ve already caught every Pokémon in the game.
