Big news trainers. Niantic just confirmed a big update for Pokemon Go – stating it will add more than 80 Pokemon from the Johto region. That means Chikorita, Cyndaquil, Totodile, and others will be at your fingertips as you traverse the world during your Pokemon journey.
Niantic’s news release states that there will gender specific variations, as well as Pokemon that require special items to evolve. Those items will be available at Pokestops.
There’s also going to be new berries and a new and expanded wardrobe, something I’m looking forward to. Even Pokemon are going to react differently when you encounter them in the wild.
This is cool news and something that trainers and critics have been asking for since the game dropped in July. With the weather warming up, I’ve been getting back outside and collecting Pokemon, but this is a nice update. Johto is one of my favorite regions and I’m excited about catching some new Pokemon.
