The whole Pokemon GO community is once again riding the hype train, following a recent release of datamined leaks and information. Following the release of the recent update (0.45.0), a brand new code was found in the game's APK. While this should be taken as a grain of salt, these things can't simply be undermined. For now, here's a list of possible Pokemon coming to the game once Gen 2 gets released.
It's worth noting that this was revealed via The Silph Road, suggesting that there's a total of 100 new Pokemon GO creatures. The information was reportedly acquired from the aforementioned version of the game via an APK code. Apart from that, a total of 52 Pokemon creature families have been added. Obviously, in a sense, these species should be part of the highly anticipated Gen 2 update.
First Things First, Pokemon GO Players
Pokemon GO is said to include names of creatures from Pokedex #152 (Chikorita) all the way to #251 (Celibi). All of these apparently have been added to the code. However, in terms of their respective movesets, these have yet to appear. This could simply mean that a server-side update as well as a regular update are needed in order to make them a reality. Unfortunately for now, Niantic hasn't given out any work in terms of these patches or updates.
New Pokemon GO Features
If and only if the names appeared in a systematically or there's a certain formula of sort, Pokemon GO players would've possible obtain a release date for Gen 2 update. For instance, like Daily Quests -- before its arrival, it was found in a code being added prior to the arrival of the update. So, since this isn't happening today, the release date of the second generation update remains unknown. Nonetheless, there are a couple of new features to look forward to.
Regardless of the aforementioned Pokemon GO shenanigans, a list of new Pokemon arriving via Gen 2 has surfaced. These are namely, Chikorita, Bayleef, Meganium, Cyndaquil, Quilava, Typhlosion, Totodile, Croconaw and. Feraligatr. Moving forward: Sentret, Furret, Hoothoot, Noctowl, Ledyba, Ledian and Spinarak.
The Pokemon GO list doesn't stop there though. It still covers the likes of Ariados, Crobat, Chinchou, Lanturn, Pichu, Cleffa, Igglybuff, Togepi and Togetic. Natu, Xatu, Mareep, Flaaffy, Ampharos, Bellossom, Marill, Azumarill, Sudowoodo and Politoed. Hoppip, Skiploom, Jumpluff, Aipom, Sunkern, Sunflora, Yanma and Wooper. Quagsire, Espeon, Umbreon, Murkrow, Slowking, Misdreavus, Unown, Wobbuffet and Girafarig. Pineco, Forretress, Dunsparce, Gligar, Steelix, Snubbull, Granbull, Qwilfish, Scizor, Shuckle, Heracross and Sneasel.
Furthermore, the Pokemon GO new creatures are Teddiursa, Ursaring, Slugma, Magcargo, Swinub, Piloswine, Corsola, Remoraid, Octillery and Delibird.
