Niantic just announced that later this week it will add more than 80 new Pokémon to Pokémon Go, including Chikorita, Cyndaquil, Totodile, and other Pokémon originally discovered in the Johto region in the Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver video games.

On top of that, the game will get new evolutions, new berries, new wardrobe items for your avatar, and new encounter gameplay (the Pokémon will react in new ways when you’re trying to catch them).

“Today is a momentous occasion for our team here at Niantic which has been hard at work to deliver these additional Pokémon and build upon the encounter and capture mechanics for our passionate global community of Trainers playing Pokémon GO,” said John Hanke, founder and Chief Executive Officer, Niantic, Inc. “Pokémon GO is a live experience which we’ll be continuing to support and evolve in new and interesting ways for years to come with new gameplay features, in-game and live events, more Pokémon to discover and much more.”

“With Pokémon GO, The Pokémon Company endeavored to create a compelling game based on the concept of encountering and catching Pokémon in the real world,” said J.C. Smith, Senior Director, Consumer Marketing, The Pokémon Company International. “The amazing response to Pokémon GO by millions of existing and new Pokémon fans around the world is remarkable. We’re thrilled to keep the adventure going by welcoming these Pokémon to this engaging new way of experiencing the fun of the Pokémon brand.”


Pokémon Go – Upcoming New Features
  • New Pokémon – more than 80 Pokémon originally discovered in the Johto region in the Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver video games.
  • New Evolutions – Pokémon originally discovered in the Kanto region will soon be able to evolve into Pokémon that inhabit the Johto region.
