It looks like Pokemon Go might make a healthy comeback this winter in releasing of new Pokemon. In an effort to get people back on the crazy train that was Pokemon Go, the popular mobile game has begun updating to Generation 2 Pokemon, slowly but surely. With the addition of 9 confirmed new Pokemon, it seems like Gen 2 is well on its way. Pictured below you can see the newest update in your Pokedex:
- Magby, which evolves into Magmar
- Elekid, which evolves into Electabuzz
- Cleffa, which evolves into Clefairy
- Igglypuff, which evolves into Jigglypuff
- Pichu, which evolves into Pikachu
- Smoochum, which evolves into Jynx
The one Pokemon missing from this list is Tyrogue, which evolves into Hitmonlee and Hitmonchan.
So far, it’s been confirmed that Cleffa and Igglypuff hatch from 2 km eggs like their evolved forms, and Pichu and Togepi hatch from 5 km eggs. With this new wrinkle in the evolutions, we will see if the game gains popularity again or if this update will just go by without notice.
