Second generation Pokemon could be on their way to Pokemon Go soon. Some folks from Pokemon Go fansite The Silph Road have been poking around the code of the latest Pokemon Go APK file, which has revealed a few clues about what’s coming up next in the hit augmented reality title.
The biggest news is that 100 new Pokemon have been referenced, number 152 (Chikorita) to number 251 (Celebi), as well as 52 new Pokemon families. This would be the first influx of new Pokemon since the game’s July launch. Additionally, a new quick move, ‘Transform’ is mentioned – a move associated with Ditto, the only non-legendary Pokemon of the original 151 yet to be seen in the game.
Rounding things off, the code also suggests that an anti-gym-lockout system – to prevent players who weren’t active in a gym takeover reaping the rewards – is on its way.
There’s no indication as to when these additions will appear in Pokemon Go but their presence in the code implies that they aren’t far off.
Are you excited to catch 100 new Pokemon? Let us know in the comments.
