Pokémon GO getting over 80 more Pokémon and new features

Pokémon GO is getting over 80 more Pokémon and new features this week. Trainers are about to discover more than 80 Pokémon that were originally discovered in the Johto region in the Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver games are beginning to appear around the world, including Chikorita, Cyndaquil, and Totodile. Plus, new game features are launching that will enhance your Pokémon GO experience. Take a look at some of the exciting updates rolling out.

Pokémon Aplenty

More than 80 Pokémon from the Johto region will begin to show up in Pokémon GO for the first time. Plus, you’ll be able to discover and catch gender-specific variations of select wild Pokémon, so be on the lookout! And note that some of the Pokémon you may have already encountered may be able to evolve into Pokémon that were previously not seen in Pokémon GO. Look for new Evolution items that can be used to evolve some Pokémon. These items can be obtained by spinning Photo Discs at PokéStops.

Enhanced Encounters

Now, when you encounter Pokémon in the wild, don’t be surprised if they react in new ways when you try to catch them. There is also a simple new way to quickly select items during encounters.

A Bounty of Berries

When you visit a PokéStop, you’ll now have the opportunity to get new Berries that Pokémon love. Give a Pokémon a Nanab Berry to slow its movements, making it easier to catch. Or give it a Pinap Berry to double the amount of Candy you’ll receive if your next catch attempt succeeds.

Avatar Apparel

Give your avatar a new look with customizable apparel and accessories. Upgrade your style with new items.
