Niantic has just made some major changes to Pokemon Go, altering the maximum combat power for most of the game’s creatures.

This update came on November 21st to the surprise of players around the world, with Niantic making the announcement on its website. Many Pokemon have received a significant CP bump, while others have seen a large reduction. According to its website, Niantic says it is doing this because it “will allow a more balanced and competitive battling and training experience in Gyms.”

In terms of increases, the biggest CP boost goes to Chansey, whose CP has risen 157 percent. Another noteworthy bump goes to Abra, whose CP is 106 percent higher than it was yesterday. Meanwhile, Metapod has the biggest drop in CP, with its maximum combat power declining 31 percent. Jigglypuff also received a substantial nerf, down 26 percent in this update.

Based on research conducted by the Silph Road subreddit, here is the percentage increase or decrease for each Pokemon:

  1. Lowering the CP of the Pokémon is ridiculous we’ve played to build them to the level we have them. Don’t be surprised when many players quit playing

    • Yesterday when I logged onto the app, I noticed it almost immediately. And almost decided right then and there to quit the game. So I wouldn’t be surprised either!

  2. Balanced my ass, all of the eevelutions got a boost! That’s all I ever see in Gyms anyways! My entire team is unbalanced now and it screws up this in gyms too, this is really not the way to get people to come back. But I bet they are patting themselves on the back for the increase in EXP gains you can get now. Such bull.
