Just when you think you might be over Pokemon GO, Niantic release a bit of news that has you digging for your favorite trainer cap and heading back out into the world. The ever popular mobile game has an update scheduled for December that is rumored to contain some pretty exciting stuff.
Hold your breath people, trading might actually be a thing. Since the game’s release in July, fans have been begging for a trading system that would allow you to swap Pokemon with your friends. Also, a new mechanic will allow you to actually “raise” your hatched Pokemon (think Tamogatchis). As if all of this wasn’t exciting enough, they will possibly be introducing over 100 new Pokemon into the virtual world.
Up to this point, Pokemon GO has only featured Pokemon from the first generation, and they rounded out the collection last week by releasing Dittos into the world during their Thanksgiving event. However, if the rumors are correct, there will now be 100 new Pokemon, normal and legendary, from the Second and Third Generations. Totodile, Cyndaquill, Lugia, Ho-oh, and yes, even Mew and Mewtwo, are just a few of the Pokemon rumored to be released.
I hate to say it, but don’t run out to get Pokemon GO Plus to assist in your search for Mew just yet. Niantic has not released anything official stating that these will be a part of the next updates. Yes, Niantic has said these were all possibilities in the future, but that is about all they have said. The group that brought us PokeVS has deduced that these will be a part of the next few updates after an analysis of the games code. If all of this is true, along with the release of Pokemon GO Plus, I would expect another boom of Pokemon trainers flocking to and stampeding through their local parks.
Unfortunately, it appears that the tracker is still broken. We can’t get everything we want, right? Happy hunting, Pokemon trainers!
