A lot of fans has been talking about Pokemon Gen 2 for the past few days, especially after its sudden decrease in popularity just after the few months of its release. Just a few weeks ago, there were reports that an additional 100 new Pokemon from Gen 2 will soon be added to the latest "Pokemon Go". Although Niantic still hasn't made its official announcement yet, although it seems that it might have been mistakenly given away through a memo from Starbucks.

According to Pokemon GO Hub, a Starbucks employee uploaded an image to the "Pokemon Go" subreddit to share what he claims is an internal memo from a corporate office revealing a completely new marketing campaign which is somehow coinciding with "Pokemon" Gen 2 release. According to the image, Pokemon Gen 2 is scheduled to be released on December 7th.

It was officially announced on Twitter a few days ago that "Pokemon Go" just had its latest upgrade to 0.47.1 for Android and 1.17.0 for iOS. However, the main purpose of the update is to fix a glitch found in the egg-hatching cutscene animation. Other glitches that were supposed to be fixed are a couple of minor text fixes.

"Pokemon Go" was released as a mobile app for both Android and Apple devices across the world. It quickly rose to dominate the mobile gaming industry and became an instant phenomenon across the world. It uses GPS to help the players catch Pokemon by using a map which almost looks like a rough version of Google Maps. It also has an option to display grassy plains or the real world when looking fo a Pokemon.

The sheer volume of its user placed a huge toll on the servers, and the ability to connect to the game affected its gameplay. Although it did increase its popularity in a very short span of time, its soon died down, as soon as glitches and other issues appeared, Listverse reported.
