Niantic Switches Up Pokemon Spawns In Latest Pokemon Go Update 

Niantic continues to tweak their mobile smash hit Pokemon GO behind the scenes on a regular basis and adventurous users aren’t far behind them, discovering and cataloguing even the most minute changes to the game.

Users over on The Silph road have discovered that Pokemon Nests, that is locations where catchable Pokemon spawn, have been swapped around. Based upon a pattern discovered by users on the sub-reddit it appears that some monsters have been swapped with ones with a lower Pokedex number while other nests appear to spawn up to two new monsters now.

Here is the entire list that The Silph road has compiled about known Pokemon Nest spawn changes. My area (Calgary, Alberta, Canada) is full of Drowzees and also a lot of Jynx. According to these changes I can look forward to seeing a lot more Seels and the Scythers.

Why did Niantic chose to change up nests? It certainly allows Pokemon Trainers to catch up as many monsters as possible.
