Pokemon Go Update: Few Generation 4 Pokemon Now Available
As Niantic slowly added in more Pokemon, they have released an update which has added Generation 4 Pokemon, based in Sinnoh. Gen 4 is known for releasing evolutions of older known Pokemon such as Magmortar, Electivire, Rhyperior, Togekiss, Porygon-Z, Weavile and more.
They have also added baby Pokemon such as Budew, which evolve into Pokemon introduced in previous generations. The Pokemon and the Sinnoh Region were introduced in the DS games Pearl, Diamond and Platinum.
You can get these Pokemon if you own the previous evolve stage Pokemon and if you have enough candies. You also need an item called the Sinnoh Stone in order to evolve these Pokemon. The only way to get a Sinnoh Stone is if you are able to complete enough Field Research tasks and consequently achieve a Research Breakthrough.
However, the update has not yet released all of the Gen 4 Pokemon. It has focused on evolving already-existing Pokemon in the game. You can now also transfer a Pokemon from Pokemon Go to Nintendo Switch's Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu! and Eevee.
Doing this will allow you to get Meltan, a mythical Pokemon introduced in Let's Go.
Out of the 22 cross-generation Pokemon, below are the ones that are currently available:
- Gligar to Gliscor
Below are the evolutions yet to be unveiled:
Pokemon Go is also having a Hatchathon event, where you can get eggs which hatch into the smaller evolution forms such as Rhyhorn, Magby, Porygon, Snorunt and others. The roll-out for the Sinnoh Pokemon has also changed the Egg Charts, Best Pokemon List, new Region exclusives and updates on the Field Research.
Niantic are yet to announce an official release date for the other Gen 4 Pokemon, including the Pokemon deities such as Dialga, Palkia, Giratina and Arceus. Be sure to watch this space for further updates in due course!
