Pokémon Storage increases coming for Pokémon GO

The maximum storage is increased to 1,500, and everyone gets a free upgrade by 50 spaces! The developers discuss the weather and Battle Party features as well.

Niantic have released a second edition of Developer Insights. In this post they discuss their own thoughts and motivation for the weather system and battle parties, with the latter being the first official announcement of the feature. The Battle Party feature is only currently in beta, but will get updates later on.

Players however may be interested mostly in the last part of the post:

Pokémon Storage:

  • Trainers will be able to increase the maximum number of Pokémon they can collect in their Pokémon Storage from 1,000 to 1,500 by purchasing Pokémon Storage Upgrades in the in-game shop.

Developer Comments: We’ve heard your feedback loud and clear. With the addition of Pokémon originally discovered in the Hoenn region, the need for more Pokémon Storage is greater than ever. You’ll now be able to store up to 1,500 Pokémon. We’ve also increased the minimum Pokémon Storage size by 50, so all Trainers will soon be able to carry 50 additional Pokémon.

Great news indeed for people running out of space for all their Pokémon! What are your thoughts on this news?
