Pokemon Go Update: Medal System Will Affect Pokemon Go Trainers' Capture Rate
Niantic seems to be sticking to their promise of giving new features every other week or so by adding some sort of 'bonus capture' functionality. However, this may not be as significant as the previously installed buddy system but, yeah, it's a big update alright.
At last, the medals you earned with Pokemon Go will be of use as it is reported to let players use the achievements to make it easier to catch a certain Pokemon type. Most of the medals earned have something to do with the type of Pokemon you often catch, and this will soon be linked with the upcoming feature.
Yes, we know that the statement above sounds confusing and so does what Niantic posted, even Forbes observed it to be not exactly clear too. As they stated:
"These new bonuses will give you a better chance of capturing Pokémon with a related type. For example, as you reach a higher tier for the Kindler Medal, your bonus to catch Fire-type Pokémon such as Charmander, Vulpix and Ponyta increases."
Trying to decipher, it seems that you will get some perk that as of this point un-measurable, similar to the popular Destiny's '+2 Agility' stat, it lacks context. To safely say, this could mean that some chance percentage to your Pokemon Go account will be added if you catch say a water type Pokemon often, you earn some 'catch bonus', increasing the chance to catch the same type going forward.
This is probably implemented in response to complaints about higher level, say 20+, Pokemon Go trainers having a difficult time to catch a wild Pokemon. There have been claims that if you reach beyond level 20, common Pokemon tend to increase their 'escape' percentage. In effect, lots of PokeBalls are wasted just to catch a common Pokemon.
As of this writing, and as mentioned above, the measurement is still unclear on how to add these 'capture bonus' to each Pokemon Go trainer. Some say it will be in terms of points like +1, others say it will be in terms of percentage. Whatever it will be, we are sure it will be exciting since the chances of capturing wild Pokemon will be adjusted according to what you usually get.
