'Pokemon Go' Latest News & Update: Legendary Pokemon Ho-Oh, Other Generation-2 Pokemon To Be Added To Pokedex; Game Cheats, Tips & Tricks
Think you're done with "Pokemon Go"? Think again, because Niantic still has a lot of tricks and surprises up its sleeves, even after a phenomenal beginning and continuing success. And apparently one secret is currently lurking in the game right now--and CEO John Hankie refuses to dish.
Even so, reports suggest that this could have something to do with the new 100 Gen 2 Pokemon--and the legendary Pokemon--that will be making their debut in "Pokemon Go." Although Niantic hasn't yet announced an official launch date for these new Pokemon, they could debut soon as they already exist in the current "Pokemon Go" codes and on the official Niantic sites.
Excited to catch 'em all? Get to know some of the new creatures in "Pokemon Go" and where to find them!
Gen 2 Starter Pokemon
So far, two out of three Gen 2 starter Pokemon will appear on "Pokemon Go," and those are Cyndaquil (fire-type) and Chikorita (grass-type). Cyndaquil evolves into Quilava and Typhlosion and boasts high speed and special attack stats. Chikorita, meanwhile, evolves in Bayleef and Meganium, and packs high attack, defense and special defense across the board.
Other Pokemon being added to the "Pokemon Go" list are on the Pokedex number 152-251. Keep an eye out for Pokemon like cute ones like Pichu, Togepi and Togetic, and prepare Eevee for two more additional evolutions: Umbreon and Espeon.
Perhaps the most important addition to "Pokemon Go" is the legendary Ho-Oh, which is said to live "at the foot of a rainbow." Its addition is a curious thing especially since the Niantic game has yet to record any player catching a legendary Pokemon yet. As such, it's widely believed that Ho-Oh, alongside Gen 1 legendaries Mewtwo, Mew, Articuno, Moltres and Zapdos will be available to players during a "Pokemon Go" public event.
