"Pokemon Go" promised in the near future some potential surprises and features that can be of great benefit to the fans respectively. One that was announced recently is the Capture Bonus.

As Niantic made its impact to the world recently for the Buddy System and some other remarkable patch notes, "Pokemon Go" may be heading to another direction with the Capture Bonus. Some fans may not know what this is entirely about just yet, but the said feature is more than just useful in one sense.

According to Game Spot, the Capture Bonus is linked to the earned medals that a "Pokemon Go" trainer gets whenever they catch a specific type of Pokemon respectively. Examples given include the Psychic, Gardener and Kindler, which proves fruitful not only for the accolade but also for the rewards it can give.

Pokemon Go Live reported that when a player gets to a higher tier for the Kindler Medal, for example, the bonus to catch Fire type Pokemon will increase as well, such as Charmander, Vulpix and Ponyta. In the same manner, the Trainers can strive harder to achieve a new tier through capturing multiple creatures of the identical type in "Pokemon Go."

Multiple types of creatures in "Pokemon Go" provide a different mechanic, as per Heavy. One to note is Pidgey, since the creature is a Normal and also a Flying type-the bonus will be the average of the Normal type and Flying type bonuses, which applies for all the others like it.

Some fans expect the said "Pokemon Go" feature to be the big surprise coming from Niantic. This has not been confirmed yet, since there are other prominent teases and ideas laid out by the team behind it, such as the multiplayer battle which could ultimately generate more massive fan bases.

No release date has been given yet for the Capture Bonus feature for "Pokemon Go." Nevertheless, the journey to getting more updates and feats for the said augmented reality title continue to flourish, Niantic hinting more and more as the days pass.
