Pokemon Go developer Niantic has announced that they will be removing tier 2 and tier 4 raid battles from the game. Both the tiers were removed because it was felt by the developers that they are in a weird position difficulty wise and the removal will make it easier to balance rewards and raiding difficulty across the game.
Here is what Niantic said via twitter:
“Trainers we’ve made some changes to the raid tiers.
There will no longer be 2-star and 4-star raids
Pokemon from the 2-star and 4-star raids have been added to the tier below them respectively
Rewards for 1-star and 3-star raids are increased to what 2-star and 4-star raids were awarded respectively
We will be releasing a more detailed update on the changes soon. Thank you.”
With the addition of mega evolutions and removal of the 2-star and 4-star raids, and a month full of events in September, Niantic is busy these days. We will keep you posted on any news or update regarding the game. Please stay tuned on otakuintown.com.
