Niantic has apparently launched its Pokémon Go Gen 2 update which was supposed to add about 100 new monsters to the game. The only update so far seems to be Baby Pokémon on December 12, but it is rumoured the rest will be added in the coming months!
The latest event has seen the world overrun with starter Pokémon and eggs with Gen 2 Pokémon inside. Niantic is keen to keep users engaged, and there have already been some predictions for the New Year. The developer has reportedly sent out a new message teasing the next big update.
Niantic’s teases latest update
It says: “That’s all for now. Look for another update from us in a few weeks. “You may even get a special message from Professor Willow. Remember to be alert at all times when playing Pokémon Go.” Professor Willow gives players their first Pokeball at the start of the game, the reference could mean the release of more monsters this month. Fans are already speculating that the next round of Pokémon will come in clusters, with more mini-events.
Most players bailed on the game once they had a full Pokedex, and it seemed like too much effort to get that final one of two they need. With mini-events, Niantic may be able to hold people’s interests with just six to 10 Pokémon at a time. In the meantime, there are Legendary Pokémon on the way – but there’s still a few months to go until that day.
The Pokémon Go Holiday event is coming to an end, which means no more single-use incubators supplied by the Pokestops. Players won’t be able to hatch eggs at the faster rate.
Gen 2 eggs
The evolved creatures from Baby Pokémon aren’t hatching. Siph Road, a Pokémon Go community site held an experiment with researchers collected eggs from December 12 to look at hatch rates. The results left them baffled, out of the 1,621 eggs they collected, not a single one hatched an evolved form of the Baby Pokémon. They also didn’t hatch any Regional Pokémon.
Legendary Pokémon are on their way
Finally! There are reports that Legendary Pokémon will be released in the next few months. Niantic has delayed their release as Spring and Summer are when most players will go back out and explore.
There is no exact date for the release as of yet. What do you think about those changes and when is the update gonna be released? Share your opinion in the comments.
