"Pokemon GO" players are very much looking forward to the release of its second update because of the coming of the legendary birds that have not made its appearance on the current version of the game yet. If speculations are right, the next update is coming in a few months, probably in March or May 2017.

Many players were wondering if the legendary birds really exist because they have not made any appearance in the first generation of "Pokemon Go." Thus, in the upcoming Gen 2, players are expecting that it will feature the elusive rare birds as well as the evolution of some Gen 1 pocket monsters.

Expert gamers surmised that "Pokemon GO" Gen 2 is going to be the best update to come to the game since its launch. This is because, aside from the appearance of rare Pokemon and legendary birds, it will also offer PvP battles and Pokemon breeding.

The most anticipated in the "Pokemon GO" update is definitely the Legendary Birds consisting of Moltres, Articuno and Zapdos. No trainer has ever seen any of them in the wild so gamers want them in Gen 2. Moreover, it was reported that Niantic is preparing for an event where trainers could finally encounter the birds, GamenGuide reported.

Some special monsters from Gen 1 that are likely to be included in Gen 2 are Umbreon, Steelix, Hitmontop, Blissey, Tyrogue, Espeon, Crobat, Politoed, Kingdra, Scizor, Bellosom and Slowking. Seeing the line-up, many "Pokemon GO" players expressed excitement at the prospect of playing the updated version.

Now, as the Gen 2 update is coming, players have been advised to start stocking up their candies. This is because, it will play a big role in the next "Pokemon GO" update, probably it is connected with meeting and catching the Legendary Birds.

Finally, to get more candies while waiting for "Pokemon GO" update, take advantage of the Buddy System since simply walking with the chosen Pokemon buddy will help players earn more candies. The Buddy System is one of the new features that was added in the game through the recent update.
