Reports of Niantic states that new Pokemons will soon be surfacing the augmented reality mobile game "Pokemon Go" soon, but official word of it is still nowhere to be found. Recent reports states that Niantic is announcing more "Pokemon Go" information on Dec. 12 with some player assuming that Gen 2 Pokemons will be out at that time, while other believes that Legendary Pokemons will be released.

Legendary Pokemons In 'Pokemon Go'

The Pokemon Company International and Niantic recently announced that more details on new Pokemons will be revealed on Dec. 12. This was released by the company four days, after the Starbucks event was announced.

Many believed that in the upcoming "Pokemon Go" announcement by Niantic and The Pokemon Company on Dec. 12 is all about the Legendary Pokemons. While 100 Pokemons were clearly revealed on the "Pokemon Go" data, there is still possibilities that Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Mew and Mewtwo will be available on the Starbucks event.

Meanwhile, Starbucks could actually have a full house of "Pokemon Go" players if the coffee company promises that Articuno would appear if players bought a Frappuccino rather than a normal Gen 2 Pokemon. Meaning, it's a lot easier for Niantic to get "Pokemon Go" players hyped up for a whole bunch of Legendary Pokemons in the upcoming Starbucks event.

However, there is still no official statement from Niantic and The Pokemon Company which of the Pokemons will appear on the Starbuck event. The only clue that the companies stated is "Pokemon Go" roster will be bigger than before.

"Pokemon Go" Gen 2 Pokemons is believed to be on the Johto Region from the "Pokemon Gold and Silver" series with Pokemons like Pupitar, Qwilfish, and Wooper. The Starbuck event is happening on December 12 with the said coffee company hosting a "Pokemon Go" worldwide event.
