Pokémon GO Entire Meta Could Shift with Move Balance Changes Next Season, Time to Pause Powering Up Pokémon?

Michael Steranka, Pokémon GO’s director, has dropped some major hints about what’s to come next Season, and it’s not just another run-of-the-mill update. After wrapping up the 2023 Pokémon GO Worlds, Steranka gave an interview and let slip that big move balance changes are coming next Season.

Steranka wasn’t spilling all the beans, but he made it clear that the Pokémon GO team is ready to shake things up more than usual. Could this be the rumored Paldea update, allowing Pokémon to change their type temporarily? It might be the easiest thing for them to do, but with all the bugs and recurring issues, some players might be more worried than excited about Niantic’s updates.

Here’s a piece of advice, you might want to hold off on powering up Pokémon. The entire meta could change in just three weeks.

  1. Pokemon Go does not have a meta. The entire game is mash button faster to win. I still don’t understand why they even have an event for this at worlds. It’s essentially the special Olympics of the Pokemon community. Hence why they are trying to run it into the ground so they can make room for something new.
