Pokemon Go Weather Effects Disabled for Six Months, Issue Status is Still Investigating

Trainers, Niantic and Pokemon Go disabled the weather effect in the game for six months now, and there is still no word if they’re going to fix the issues and enable the weather-related visual effects.

The weather effects were causing problems in Pokemon Go, so Niantic has temporarily disabled them back on December 8, 2021. It has been six months since the change, and most players want to know what’s the status of this. Well, nothing is changing at the moment, and the weather effects are not in the game.

Niantic and Pokemon Go announced the weather feature on December 6, 2017, and released it on December 8, 2017. On the same day, they released 50 Pokemon originally discovered in the Hoenn region, and real-world weather conditions in Map View, in battle, and when catching Pokemon. The weather in Pokemon Go matched the weather in your local area and different types of weather will boost different types of Pokemon.
