The Pokémon GO app will soon be updatet with the second generation of Pokémon. In this article I will tell you everything you need to know about the upcoming update. After this article you will know Pokémon GO second generation release date, upcoming evolutions and more!
Last week the tracker update was rolled out, which finally make searching and tracking Pokémon more bearable. The buddy system is also live since a couple of weeks and all these improvements made the game better and more complete. Since a couple of days you can also finally transfer multiply Pokémon at once, it’s a huge timesaver and it just makes life easier.
Pokémon GO second generation release date?
On the 12th of December Niantic will come with more information, as was confirmed in a Tweet the Pokémon Company send earlier this week:
It will be likely that on that day Niantic and The Pokémon Company will reveal the exact release date. Some even speculate that the 12th of december will actually be the actual release date of the second generation update for Pokémon GO.
Cool things that are coming to Pokémon GO
A little breakdown of all the features that are coming to Pokémon GO;
- Daycare options
- Baby Pokémon
- Larger Pokédex
- More Evolutions
- More attack/defence moves
- Balance in stats
It’s cool to realise that the recently added Ditto will most likely also play a huge part in the breeding function. The same as it did in the Gameboy/(3)DS games.
New Pokémon that are coming to Pokémon GO
It’s most likely that you know your classics, but it could also be that you have never really experienced the second generation of Pokémon. That’s why I will give you this list of the Pokémon that will be added. This will help you in your choice in catching the right Pokémons, so you can immediately start evolving some of the first generation of Pokémon. Like for example; start catching all the Zubats you encounter because Crobat is waiting for you! This is the evolution of Golbat and adds a much cooler look and higher speed in stats.
The following list will tell you which Pokémon from the first generation you will need to evolve to get their second gen counterpart:
- Espeon – 25 Eevee candies for a Eevee
- Umbreon – 25 Eevee candies for a Eevee
- Steelix – 50 Onix candies for a Onix
- Slowking – 50 or 100 candies for a Slowpoke
- Kingdra – 100 candies for a Horsea
- Blissey – 50 candies for a Chansey
- Bellossom – 100 candies for a Gloom (so you will need 100 Oddish candies)
- Crobat – 100 candies for a Golbat (100 Zubat candies)
- Scizor – 50 candies for a Scyther
- Porygon 2 – 50 candies for a Porygon
- Politoad – 50 candies for a Poliwhirl (100 Poliwag candies)
These are the only ones with a relationship with the first generation of Pokémon. There are even 90+ more Pokémon to come.
