The latest "Pokemon Go" update involving baby Gen 2 Pokemon has reportedly elicited mixed reactions from the players. On the bright side, the "Pokemon Go" latest update was well-received because it was like a breath of fresh air to see new creatures in the game.

According to reports, Niantic initially targeted close to 100 new Pokemon to be unveiled as Gen 2 Pokemon. However, due to time and staff constraints, it appears that Gen 2 Pokemon will have to be released in batches.

This would be a strategic move that will benefit Niantic as players will have to stay hooked and keep the augmented-reality game always updated. Out of the 100 expected Gen 2 Pokemon to be released in "Pokemon Go" leatest update, only seven were unveiled.

Take note that the seven Gen 2 Pokemon are not readily available. Specifically, players need to hatch the eggs first, much like with the already existing egg hatching system of "Pokemon Go."
