Niantic has released a series of updates and events in "Pokemon Go" over the past few weeks to improve the mobile game and entice more "Pokemon Go" players to catch more monsters. However "Pokemon Go" players are still hoping that they will be catching the Generation 2 Pokemon soon but players might won't wait any longer because there have been rumors reported that it will be released on Dec. 7.

In the previous updates, the dataminers have discovered some new sponsors to be advertised in Pokestops in "Pokemon Go." In a report by Pokemon Go Hub, a Pokemon Go fanatic Starbuck employee leaked an internal email which mentions that Starbucks will be a part of the Generation 2 release and even has a special frappuccino drink for the launch.

"Based on the description of the event, it would require Niantic to put a Pokestop at every Starbucks," the barista said to Pokemon Go Pocket. "Lastly, I realize this may seem strange, especially with the "Pokeman", but it's a real email and I can send proof to the mods if required," he continued as he also stated that Pokemon Go information was very vague.

Pokemon Go Hub also discovered that the Generation2 codes were available in the "Pokemon" Go v0.45.0. The new code includes Generation 2 starter Pokemon and their evolution forms Chikorita, Bayleef, Meganium, Cyndaquil, Quilava, Typhlosion, Totodile, Croconaw and Fergalatatr.

"Pokemon Go" Generation 2 is also reported to have regional exclusives of Pokemon across the globe. Europe will have a Smeargle exclusive, Milktank in North America, Dunspace in Australia and Quillfish will be an exclusive in Asia.

In Africa a Girafarig will be their exclusive Pokemon, the penguin-like Delibird will be an exclusive in Antartica and Heracross for South America. Players will have to wait until Dec. 7 to know whether the Generation 2 will be truly released by Niantic for "Pokemon Go". Check back here on GameNGuide and we'll keep you updated on the release.
