Weather is an in-game phenomenon that mimics a Trainer's real-world weather experience. The current weather is reflected in the Map View and capture phase. Weather conditions make Pokémon of certain types stronger and cause their attacks to be more effective. Pokémon will appear more frequently in wild and award more Stardust when captured; depending on what the weather condition is.[1]
