Pokemon GO Developer Teases Solution To Catching Regional Pokemon, Potential Use Of Smart Glasses
The main problem with regional monsters in Pokemon GO is that players in certain localities have difficulty trying to complete their Pokedex. Luckily, it seems like Niantic might be working on a solution to this problem including the potential feature of Smart Glasses.
Solving Regional Pokemon Problems Through Migration?
During a recent interview with the German news outlet WIRED, Niantic CEO, John Hanke, shared some more details about the possible future of the mobile Pokemon game. There, he went on a walk on the streets of Berlin while on the hunt for monsters to catch. He claimed that the Pokemon in the locality were different from those back in his hometown in San Francisco where there is an abundance of Krabby.
Hanke noted that there are certain monsters that live on specific continents only with this being a problem for players who are trying to complete their Pokedex. However, the CEO mentioned that there might be a migration of monsters somewhere. While he had not mentioned anything else beyond this, there might be a chance that Niantic might be including a migration feature in the near future for players to catch regional Pokemon.
On the other hand, he believes that while smart glasses might change the game a bit, he wants to keep players focused on interacting with the environment. One of his main goals for the game is for fans to discover new parts and places of their city and it is easier to do this if they are not always fixated on their smartphones. However, he hopes that virtual reality will one day make appropriate hardware that would be fitting for the game.
