Changes made to Pokemon Go Raid Bosses and Trainer Battles

Pokemon Go

Niantic is doing their best to keep Pokemon Go fans lured to the game by introducing new features to the game. Last year, Niantic has introduced all-new PvP feature to the game. Now, they have introduced a few balancing changes to raid bosses and trainer battles.

For the raid battle changes, the featured Pokemon will have an HP increase. It will balance the damage increases made to other Pokemon during last year. Niantic has observed Pokemon performances, and how well they are performing against other Pokemon. On the basis of their analysis, they have made a few balance changes and adjusted the power of some moves. They have also introduced a few new moves for some Pokemon.
