5 Features Pokemon GO Players Can't Wait To See - More Items/Pokemon

Things Niantic can add to Pokemon GO to make players want to hop back in and catch em’ all.

1. More Items/Pokemon

Let us start this one off by saying that we actually like that there are only 150 Pokemon in Pokemon GO. It fills us with nostalgia, and takes us back to the early days of Pokemon where we could easily name them all in the “Who’s That Pokemon?” segment of the Pokemon animated series. However, after playing Pokemon GO for a while and seeing the same Pokemon over and over again, we’ve come to the conclusion that adding a few more Pokemon wouldn’t be a bad idea.

Keep in mind, we don’t want Niantic to go crazy and add in hundreds of additional Pokemon overnight. But adding in 25 more? That seems do-able (we'd personally love a Cyndaquil). While they’re at it, adding in a few new items to play around with would help spice up the game and keep things interesting (like items for sale in the previously mentioned PokeMarket). Niantic could even add rare items that drop from PokeStops, encouraging players to get out there and hit up as many stops as they can to try and find cool items (Rare Candy anyone?).

After all, if rare Pokemon spawn and despawn at random times, why not have rare items spawn and despawn at randomized PokeStops? It’d be a nice surprise to spin a PokeStop and see a Rare Egg added to your inventory, or a Rare Candy that will instantly boost a Pokemon’s CP by 25-50 points. The possibilities for additional items and Pokemon are endless!

Bonus: Team Rocket & Team Harmony

Whether you’re sick of the fighting between teams, or simply want something a little different, the addition of these two teams would be just the thing. Some players have expressed a desire to join Team Rocket, while others who are sick of fighting have created Team Harmony represented by the legendary Pokemon Lugia. Whether you’re a fan of the mischievous Team Rocket, or wish to bring everyone together under Team Harmony, the addition of one or both teams would certainly be fun!

Overall, these additions to Pokemon GO are only a few of many suggestions that players have for the game. Keep in mind, Pokemon GO is still quite new, which means that Niantic is still working on improving the game and working out the kinks. Although Pokemon GO’s last update was disappointing (because of how much potential the game has), there’s still time for Niantic to do right by players and give them some of the things they’ve been begging for.
