Pokémon Trainers rejoice! Catching ‘em all has just become more exciting with the addition of a number of Generation II Pokémon, first seen in the Johto Region in Pokémon Gold and Silver, to Pokémon GO. As revealed by developer Niantic, starting today at 10 A.M. PST players can visit and spin PokéStops to acquire eggs which later might hatch a Togepi, Pichu, or “select other Pokemon”.

Another day, another Pokemon GO piece of news, or in this case, some news along with a game update. Niantic Labs has pushed out a new update that brings with it a few helpful new features for trainers to use. However, inside the game’s code, more goodies have been found, but this time it looks to be about holiday costumes coming to the game in another update before Christmas.

We recently reported on some datamined goodness with Pokemon GO that revealed the game would be getting 100 new 2nd generation Pokemon in an update coming soon. However there is one 1st generation Pokemon that has yet to be found, and that is Ditto. This, however, has changed. Ditto is now available for trainers to find and collect, but there’s a catch to getting one.
As you may or may not be aware of by now, Niantic Labs has announced that they will be launching their third global event in a couple of days. The event, which is Niantic’s way of saying thank you for making their game a ridiculous success, will have trainers receiving double the XP and Stardust for a week.
Niantic has pushed out a new update for Pokemon GO that brings with it some interesting changes to the game. One of the bigger additions is that of a Pokemon Appraisal system for trainers to use. Besides that there are a few other tweaks to the game, as well as some bug fixes.
