Niantic has announced a new feature for Pokemon Go, a new type of Pokemon called Lucky Pokemon.
According to a blog post on Pokemon Go’s official site, Pokemon have a chance to become Lucky Pokemon when they’re traded. Lucky Pokemon will require less Stardust to power up than regular Pokemon, so you won’t have to spend as much to get them to their maximum CP.
According to Niantic’s post, a Pokemon is more likely to become Lucky the longer it’s spent in your Pokemon storage, so Pokemon from the game’s launch two years ago probably have a better chance than something you’ve caught recently.
“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,” the post says.
