Over 80 more Pokémon and new features coming this week to Pokémon GO

Posted on February 15, 2017 by Jason Nason

Chikorita, Cyndaquil, Totodile, and many more Pokémon are nearly here in Pokémon GO! Starting later this week, more than 80 Pokémon originally discovered in the Johto region in the Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver video games will be available in Pokémon GO.

Pokémon with gender-specific variations, will also start rolling out in Pokémon GO.

New Evolutions: Some Pokémon originally discovered in the Kanto region will soon be able to evolve—into Pokémon that inhabit the Johto region. New Evolution items will also be available at PokéStops, which you’ll need to evolve some Pokémon.

When you encounter Pokémon in the wild, don’t be surprised if they react in new ways as you’re trying to catch them. New item carousels that allow you to select Berries and Poké Balls directly from the encounter screen will be added in this week’s update.

Two new Berries are being added when spinning the Photo Disc at PokéStops—Nanab Berries and Pinap Berries! Giving a Pokémon a Nanab Berry will slow its movements, making it easier to catch. The Pinap Berry doubles the amount of Candy you’ll receive if your next catch attempt succeeds.

New Avatars and an Expanded Wardrobe will also be added, allowing you to give your avatar a complete upgrade! Customize your look with a whole new selection of hats, shirts, pants, and other items.
