Finally the big Pokémon Go news that everyone has been waiting for is here today, and fans are so excited about it that the game is trending worldwide on Twitter once again, just like those heady days last summer.
Pokémon Go developer Niantic has caused all the fuss today by announcing that more than 80 new Pokémon from the Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver games will be arriving in Pokémon Go later this week. This includes the likes of Chikorita, Cyndaquil, and Totodile, to name but a few, as well as Pokémon with gender-specific variations.
And that’s not all, as there are also some new evolution possibilities for some of the current Pokémon that are already found in the game, and you’ll be able to pick up new Evolution items at PokéStops that can be used for these new evolutions.
Other new items that you’ll be able to pick up by spinning the Photo Disc at PokéStops include two new Berry types, Nanab Berries and Pinap Berries. When trying to catch a Pokémon, give it a Nanab Berry to slow it down and make it easier to catch, and a Pinap Berry to double the amount of Candy earned from catching it, should you be successful.
As far as your Trainer avatar is concerned, you’ll be able to choose from many more wardrobe items, including new hats, shirts, pants, and other items.
And finally, Niantic has added some new encounter gameplay animations, so you can expect Pokémon to act in different ways when you’re trying to catch them. Item carousels have also been added so that you can select Berries and Poké Balls without having to leave the catch screen.
