Niantic and The Pokémon Company have officially announced that an additional 80 Pokémon will appear in Pokémon GO later this week. These include Pokémon in the Johto region from the Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver video games, including Chikorita, Cyndaquil, and Totodile. Apart from brand new Pokémon, other gameplay additions such as new Evolution items, two new Berries, and expanded outfit options for their Trainer avatars have been added.
New Pokémon evolution options will give players the ability to use new Evolution items to evolve their Pokémon into ones that were originally discovered in the Johto region. While catching Pokémon, Trainers can use two new Berries — the Nanab Berry and the Pinap Berry — which doubles the amount of Candy received if the next catch attempt succeeds.
Trainers will also be able to customize their avatar’s appearance with a wider selection of hats, shirts, pants, and other items. We’ve also been told that the Pokémon GO shop will have more items available as in-app purchases. Other than that, be on the lookout for the update later this week.
