Pokémon Go: Pokédex sorts and real-time light in test

Update, June 29, 2021:

The developers of Pokémon Go are reporting two full-blown events. First, testing of the ambient light mechanic has begun in certain regions, meaning that Pokémon Go's world map will be colored according to the local lighting conditions. The test of the feature has now started for players in Australia, Singapore, the United Kingdom, and Mexico. More countries are sure to follow shortly.Recommended EditorialContentThisiswhere you will find external content from [PLATTFORM].

The other mechanic that the creators of Pokémon Go want to try is advanced filters for the Pokédex. Select players have been unlocked for the test, and they will now find more classifications in the Pokédex than just "Mega" and "All." Among other things, the Pokédex will now show which Mon you've already caught as Shiny. You'll also be able to see only Recovered Pocket Monsters, Crypto Monsters, Pokémon with a 100% IV value, Lucky Pokémon, and more.

Original news on July 18, 2021 : Everything new ... makes June, at least on the official website for Niantic's pocket monster collection game Pokémon Go. It's been given a new and more modern makeover, and if you want, you can admire it for yourself. As part of the new design, the folks at Niantic also dropped a new post to hint at two new features.

Local lighting conditions in real time

The first feature is a new game mechanic that "mimics local lighting conditions in real time," according to official communication. Exactly what this is all about is not yet known. Here's a hint in the dark: maybe it has something to do with seventh-gen Ultra developments.

After all, 2021 is halfway over and the time is approaching when the makers of Pokémon Go could tease the seventh generation - yeah, okay, it probably won't be until November or December 2021. Plus, yes, the mechanics would have to be tested with other Mon before then.

Pokédex classifications

You can also expect new classifications in the Pokédex in the near future, which could be based on Pokémon variants and attributes. Perhaps this isn't just a convenience goodie for sorting costumed mon, Sesokitz, Rotom, Giratina, and the like, but also a hint that after Xerneas and Yveltal, Zygarde and its various manifestations will soon be available in the game? Even if that doesn't mean the arrival of the Legendary; helpful are the new classification features for the hardcore fans of Pokémon Go in any case.
