New Pokémon Headed To Pokémon GO


When Pokemon Go was launched initially, the initial outcome was stronger than Lugia’s Aeroblast. When the game was officially launched in Sri Lanka, that hit us harder than Tyranitar’s Earthquake.

Now, with the latest update, there seems to be more ways to catch em all. Whilst including a few minor tweaks and changes to the gameplay such as fixes in text and a correction for GPS drift, some data miners have also uncovered a few new lines of code. According to these lines, more second-generation Pokémon could be coming soon to a neighborhood near you.

Gotta Catch em All

According to the popular Pokémon GO resource website The Silph Road, data miners have stumbled onto some new mentions of gen-two Pokémon. That’s not all. Anyone who has played the Gen Two games such as Pokémon Gold, Silver or Crystal would know that there were separate items that had to be held by Pokémon in order for them to evolve into gen-two ones.

Dragon Scale, Anyone?

This means items such as Dragon Scale, King’s Rock, Metal Coat, Sun Stone and Up-Grade will possibly be available in the next major update.

If you don’t know what the items are, here’s a list of them along with which Pokémon can use them to evolve:

King’s Rock:

  • Causes Poliwhirl to evolve into Politoed
  • Causes Slowpoke to evolve into SlowKing

Metal Coat:

  • Causes Onix to evolve into Steelix
  • Causes Scyther to evolve into Scizor

 Sun Stone:

  • Causes Gloom to evolve into Bellossom


  • Causes Porygon to evolve into Porygon2

Dragon Scale:

  • Causes Seadra to evolve into Kingdra

More Pokémon

That’s not all though. According to the code, we will also be seeing the appearance of Unown. The Unown are Pokémon that are shaped like letters of the alphabet (from A-Z plus two punctuation marks)

Furthermore, the datamine also gives us a possible look at new features such as customization for players’ avatars. This includes the addition of belts, glasses and necklaces. It also introduces a whopping 38 brand new moves for that extra oomph for Gym battles.

We still don’t have a date for when Gen-Two Pokemon will be released but our dream to be the very best that no one ever was, continues. We gotta catch ’em all.
