One of Pokémon Go‘s latest Generation III additions—Castform—is finally receiving its iconic move, according to data miners.
In a teardown of the upcoming 0.93.3 update, Pokémon Go Hub discovered notes for Castform’s “Weather Ball” in the game’s files. As you can see below, the unique attack is listed as part of the master file, meaning trainers will see the move in a patch down the line.
Castform originally appeared in the mainline games Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire and stood out to the community for its use of weather mechanics. Its featured attack, Weather Ball, changed typing depending on the in-battle weather, giving Castform the opportunity to use a multi-elemental move at any time. With weather mechanics now present in Pokémon Go, the attack will likely work similarly.
Apart from the attack, there are differences when comparing Castform’s appearance in the mainline games and Pokémon Go. In Ruby and Sapphire, the Normal version of Castform could change into one of three forms in battle—Sunny, Rainy, and Snowy—but then switch back to Normal once the match ended. As for Pokémon Go, Niantic made the different forms of Castform as separate Pokémon, meaning trainers can have, for example, a Rainy version at all times.
While the new move is an exciting find in the files, Pokémon Go Hub didn’t locate anything else noteworthy. For now, trainers can enjoy the current Legendary Week rewards. Thanks to trainers defeating more Rayquaza than Kyogre and Groudon in Legendary raid battles, Double XP and an increased chance of hatching windy weather Pokémon are the bonuses now available until March 16th.
Pokémon Go is available for iOS and Android.
