‘Pokemon Go’ Latest News & Update: Pokemon Creatures To Stockpile For Gen2 Release; Candy Costs Revealed
"Pokemon Go" players have been eagerly awaiting for the release of new Pokemon creatures to Niantic's mobile gaming app. Latest gaming news teased of the potential candy costs needed to evolve several first generation Pokemon into stronger creatures.
Niantic's popular gaming app "Pokemon Go" gave gamers a different playing experience given its capability to "capture" game characters in the real world. Despite post-launch games issues that frustrated many players, the game managed to retain a strong fanbase.
Previous reports have revealed leaked gaming files that uncovered hidden game codes for upcoming second generation Pokemon creatures. With the potential to increase the "Pokemon Go" Pokedex to over 200 characters, many fans have been eagerly awaiting for the said creatures' deployment to Niantic's gaming app.
To prepare for the speculated release of second generation Pokemon, "Pokemon Go" gamers are advised to stock up on candies and hang on to a few creatures, according to gaming tips posted on Business Insider. Pokemon monsters such as Eevee, Slowpoke, Seadra, Golbat, Chansey, Gloom, Onix, Poliwhirl and Scyther could potentially evolve into some of the second generation creatures.
With a candy cost of 25 candies each, Eevee can evolve into Espeon and Umbreon in the speculated second generation update for "Pokemon Go." Meanwhile, the creatures Seadra, Golbat, Chansey and Bloom can transform into Kingdra, Crobat, Blissey and Bellossom, respectively, for 100 candies each.
Poliwag candies will also come in handy when Niantic deploys its highly anticipated update for "Pokemon Go." Poliwhirl can evolve into Politoed or Poliwrath for a cost of 100 candies, while Scyther can turn into Scrizor for the same candy amount.
For Slowpoke and Onix, the two Pokemon creatures can evolve into Slowbro or Slowking and Steelix, respectively. With an evolution cost of 50 candies each, "Pokemon Go" players should start stockpiling candies to prepare for the speculated update.
Meanwhile, Niantic is expected to release more gaming events for "Pokemon Go." Similar to the Halloween event and the Daily Reward program, the gaming company is set to unveil more gaming challenges, as well as enhancements, to keep players happy.
"Pokemon Go" was launched in July in select countries before it was released to other markets. Learn more about the game's speculated December update in the clip below:
