Pokemon Go Adds Johto Content Later This Week

Niantic has announced that Pokemon GO will finally get its Johto-themed content update this week.

The new update will add 80 new Pokemon to the game, alongside other new content. Featured above, you can view a new trailer for the update.

Here’s a rundown on what to expect, via Nintendo:

  • New encounter gameplay.
  • New Evolution items – New Pokemon evolution options will give players the ability to use new Evolution items to evolve their Pokemon into ones that were originally discovered in the Johto region.
  • Two new Berries – The Nanab Berry, which slows a Pokemon’s movements, and the Pinap Berry, which doubles the amount of Candy received if the next catch attempt succeeds.
  • New selection of hats, shirts, pants, and other items for trainers to wear. Additional items will be available for purchase from the in-game shop.

    Some were already added (the baby pokemon of gen 2), plus it is reasonable to assume legendary pokemon will not be avalable to catch right away, that should accout for the 20 pokemon discrepancy

    People still play this? I no longer see people walking around searching for them pokeymans. Might have something to do with the increase in smartphone theft.
