“We are adding a new feature which grants a catch bonus when you earn medals based on catching certain types of Pokémon (Kindler, Psychic, Gardener, etc.),” an update on Niantic’s website says. “These new bonuses will give you a better chance of capturing Pokémon with a related type. For example, as you reach a higher tier for the Kindler Medal, your bonus to catch Fire-type Pokémon such as Charmander, Vulpix and Ponyta increases.”
So, for example, if you’re sick of constantly catching Pidgeys, there will actually be a benefit to doing so: It increases the chances that you’ll catch a rare Flying or Normal type Pokémon in the future.
And, in the case of Pidgey, who is a combination of two Pokémon types, “Your bonus in this case would be the average of your Normal-type and Flying-type bonuses,” according to Niantic.
By the looks of it some double type pokemon will give you 2 bonuses, This will mean will get a few more rare Pokemon but the standard pidgeys and common pokemon. Pokemon Go To Receive new Update Are Niantic Loyal?
