For anyone unaware, a Nest migration takes place every two weeks, and while it’s not a full-scale update to the game, it does have a big impact on the way you play.
Essentially this means that locations where you might have previously found an abundance of one certain Pokemon, will likely change to another species.
For instance, a local Pikachu nest might suddenly become a fantastic place to catch Dragonite. This is especially good news for anyone looking for some new Gen 3 Pokemon to catch, as your local Wurmple nest might switch to Slaking
The Silph Road, a website dedicated to covering all things Pokemon GO have a website to help track these nests, where users can report sightings of Pokemon in the wild.
“The 40th Nest Migration hit this evening! Head out and report back what species you discover nesting at your local parks, travelers” reads a message from The Silph Road team on Twitter early this morning.
Pokemon GO YouTuber, Trainer Tips, has also encouraged users to ensure they utilise the reporting feature on The Silph Road website, telling his fans:
“I know it’s been a while since nests were really exciting, but with so many new Gen 3 Pokémon out, it’s time to start reporting nests to @TheSilphRoad’s Nest Atlas again!”
Reportedly a new Pokemon update released earlier this week has allowed Niantic to roll out a new feature for players to use which mitigates the games Weather Warning system.
Essentially, the boosts provided to Pokemon by weather effects were being turned off when the game deemed it to be too rough outside.
However, players can now tell the game they are safe with a new “I am safe” button, which will reportedly leave the bonuses on.
“I figured they’d do something like this after all those complaints, and I’m happy!” one user wrote.
“Environment Canada tends to announce storms several days before they hit, so I just had my weather spawns blocked for four full days up to and including Christmas. Nice to know that won’t happen again!
“Totally agree – in my area, we could have winter storm warnings an entire day ahead of even potential weather (so much fun living in the area where the moist/warmer southern air and cold northern air meet, and it depends on exactly where they meet that results in either a great big storm or absolutely nothing…), so I am very happy not to be dealing with “extreme” weather while it’s sunny out!” another posted.
