Lucky Pokémon Coming Soon to Pokémon GO
Today, Niantic announced that Lucky Pokémon will soon be introduced to Pokémon GO to coincide with the recently released Friends and Trading features. When traded, Pokémon will have the chance to become sparkly Lucky Pokemon, requiring less Stardust to power up. The longer a Pokémon spends inside a Trainer’s storage prior to the trade, the higher the chance of them becoming Lucky Pokémon once Traded with a Friend.
“Professor Willow has made an important new discovery about Pokémon! His findings suggest that Pokémon can take on a new trait when they are traded. The trait’s origin is a mystery, and you can experience it soon in Pokémon GO!”
The longer the Pokémon spends inside a Trainer’s Pokémon storage, the higher the chance of them becoming Lucky Pokémon when they are traded. Whether or not being in storage causes Pokémon to become Lucky Pokémon remains a mystery, but be sure to stay posted for more results from the professor’s research.
With the discovery of Lucky Pokémon, Gifts also can include special new surprises. Trainers who send Gifts to friends will now receive XP for doing so and Gifts also have a chance of containing Stardust!
