This post talks about the newest Pokemon Go API, the Weather Boosts API at pogoapi.net.
Weather Boosts In Pokemon Go
While playing Pokemon Go the weather will cause a number of effects, some of which may be beneficial.
One of the changes is that depending on the weather certain Pokemon may be caught “boosted”. This is shown by a circling blue swirl around the Pokemon. These will be higher level than normal.
In addition to this, all raid bosses of a type currently weather boosted will be stronger. Moves also affected by the boost will do 20% more damage.
There are some cases where the weather will be marked as “Extreme”. This turns off all weather affects and typically only occurs when there is severe weather warnings in your area.
Getting the Weather Boosts Information
This API lists what each weather type boosts.
Returns a JSON dict where each key is the weather type and the value is an array of boosted types.
The full documentation is available on the PoGoAPI.net documentation page.
