While we’re in the midst of celebrating the Valentine’s event in Pokémon GO, Niantic decided to drop a huge announcement! More Pokémon from the Johto region are now coming to the game. Chikorita, Cyndaquil, Totodile and more will be obtainable in the coming weeks.
Over 80 new Pokémon are being let loose for us to catch. It will even go as far as including gender variations to some of the Pokémon. With the inclusion of Johto comes new evolutions for already existing Pokémon. There will be specific items to find in order to perhaps receive Espeon, Umbreon, Slowking and more.
Some adjustments have been made to battling and catching. Pokémon have different reactions and animations when attempting to catch them. There is also easier item selection directly during battle. The addition of new berries makes it easier to capture Pokémon or earn extra Candy. Finally, new clothing options gives you the most fashionable look for a brand new adventure.
