Pokemon GO update that adds dynamic weather and more Gen 3 is live

The Pokemon GO update detailed earlier this week is live.

Niantic has released Pokemon GO update 0.85.2 for Android and 1.55.1 for iOS devices.

This is the update which adds location based, dynamic weather along with more Gen 3 Pokemon from the Hoenn region. Or, Pokemon Ruby Sapphire for those who aren't familiar with Pokemon geography.

Treecko, Torchic, Mudkip, and others will start showing up today with more Gen 3 arriving over the next several weeks.
