The world of Pokémon Go is undoubtedly an interesting one. When the game first came out players had to literally hunt for their pokemons. Not in the sense of sitting at home and exploring the fictional universe of the game but actually traveling around your town in order to find the locations where you could catch a Pokémon. And that’s not all.
If you thought that just by going to the park in your town, for example, you would find a Pokémon, tap on it and add it to your collection just like that, you are terribly misguided.
You have to catch it by trapping it into one of the Poke balls. And that is not always as easy as it sounds. You have to angle the way in which you throw the ball and the speed at which you are throwing it to make sure that you are successful. Pokémons are tricky little things, and they will not go down that easily.
And after you caught one you could keep hunting for others to have a bigger collection. And if you captured more of the same Pokemon then you could start to upgrade them.
Nevertheless, the process is a tricky but entertaining one, and we do not have to tell fans of the game how to play it. We just wanted to briefly explain to the audience why Pokémon Go is so amazing. Now, Niantic is continuously adding more Pokemon to the game.
They come from a number of different generations, and today we will be talking about the current generations of Pokémon that are present in the game and the next generation of Pokémons that is about to come to the game. We’ll also briefly mention some events that are going to happen in the Pokémon Go community this summer. So, if you want to find out more then read on!
New Kanto-region Pokémon
Pokémon Go has featured monsters only from the first three generations of the series and fans have started to expect Niantic to roll out more pokemon from the fourth generation, then the fifth and so on and so forth. However, they are in for a surprise.
A blog post from the game’s website has announced the fact that Pokémon Go will soon feature new monsters from the Kanto-region. These pokemon are drawn from Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. They are the Alolan variants of familiar pokemon such as Raichu, Meowth, and Diglett, among others. Do we have your attention? Do you want to find out which Pokemon we are talking about?
What pokemons are they?
The Alolan pokemons that we are talking about are as follows: Rattata (Dark and Normal), Marowak (Fire and Ghost) Raticate (Dark and nromal), Exeggutor (Grass and Dragon), Raichu (Electric and Psychic), Muk (Poison and Dark), Sandshrew (Ice and Steel), Grimer (Poison and Dark), Sadnslash (Ice and Steel), Golem (Rock and Electric), Vulpix (Ice), Graveler (Rock and Electric), Ninetales (Ice and Fairy), Geodude (Rock and Electric), Diglett (Ground and Steel), Persian (Dark), Dugtrio (Ground and Steel) and last but not least, Meowth (Dark). In the parentheses, we have added the types of the Pokémon that you can encounter. Some pokemon may have two new types whereas others only have one.
As we have mentioned before, these Pokémons are variants of the 151 Kanto Pokémon that were initially introduced in 2016 with Pokémon Sun and Moon.
The update came with a teaser image. In this image, we can see a large number of Pokémon silhouettes, and for some people, it may be a bit hard to distinguish which is which. This is why we gave you a list of all the new Pokémons that will soon come to the game. The small monsters will debut in Pokémon Go very soon, and players may expect to start to see them while they are exploring the world of the game.
These summer community events are all part of Niantic’s Summer Tour 2018. This will start next month. The first event will take place in Germany, named the Safari Zone event. Next, we will have the annual Pokémon Go Fest in Chicago in July. Just after that, there will also be a special Safari zone event which will take place in Yokosuka.
We can also expect Niantic to come with some other small events that players all around the world can compete in. However, we do not have more details about such event right now, and we admit that it is just our guess. Coming up with other activities for fans will surely be interesting. Maybe we will even get to see a small contest being organized so that fans can compete and fight their way to the top to receive some prize, perhaps a unique Pokémon.
If and when that happens we will surely keep you posted. For now, we cannot wait to start to see these new Alolan Pokémons appear in our games as well so we can capture as many as we find. They will be a lovely part of our collection, and we cannot wait to see what it will take to upgrade them and have the strongest little monsters out there.
We bet that what we are thinking right now is on the minds of other Pokémon Go fans as well. We want to wish them the best of luck, and we hope that they will indeed get around to catching them all!
