Pokemon Go Adding New Features & More Later in the Week

Announced today via Twit­ter, Niantic revealed Poké­mon Go is set to see some pret­ty sweet new fea­tures and additions. 

The biggest addi­tion is the arrival of 80 new Poké­mon, which were all from the Johto region in Poké­mon Gold and Poké­mon Sil­ver games. They also added gen­der-spe­cif­ic vari­a­tions, which every­one will start to see lat­er this week. Three of these were named specif­i­cal­ly, as they are the three you get to choose from when you start these two game edi­tions: Chiko­ri­ta, Cyn­daquil, Totodile. A pic­ture is below if you have nev­er seen them (they are among my favorites).

Pokemon Go Adding New Features & More Later in the WeekThe Poké­mon Go team also added new evo­lu­tions, berries, avatars, an expand­ed wardrobe, and new encounter game­play. It is all list­ed below for you to view.

New Evo­lu­tions

There are now more oppor­tu­ni­ties to evolve your Poké­mon in Poké­mon GO than ever before. Some Poké­mon orig­i­nal­ly dis­cov­ered in the Kan­to region will soon be able to evolve—into Poké­mon that inhab­it the Johto region! Be on the look­out for new Evo­lu­tion items at PokéStops, which you’ll need to evolve some Pokémon.

New Encounter Gameplay

When you encounter Poké­mon in the wild, don’t be sur­prised if they react in new ways as you’re try­ing to catch them. You’ll also notice the addi­tion of new item carousels that allow you to select Berries and Poké Balls direct­ly from the encounter screen. Hone your skills and catch those elu­sive Pokémon!

New Berries

Poké­mon enjoy eat­ing Berries, and you’ll have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to get two new Berries by spin­ning the Pho­to Disc at PokéStops—Nanab Berries and Pinap Berries! Giv­ing a Poké­mon a Nanab Berry will slow its move­ments, mak­ing it eas­i­er to catch. The Pinap Berry dou­bles the amount of Can­dy you’ll receive if your next catch attempt succeeds.

New Avatars and an Expand­ed Wardrobe

Now you’ll be able to give your avatar a com­plete upgrade! Cus­tomize your look with a whole new selec­tion of hats, shirts, pants, and oth­er items.
