Following the Generation 4 announcement last week, Niantic surprised their fans by releasing the Gen 4 Pokemon from the Sinnoh region in Pokemon GO today.
Last week, Pokemon GO has announced the coming of Generation 4 Pokemon in the game. However, no release date has been announced yet.
While most of the fans are expecting to have this new Pokemon from the Sinnoh region when an event is released, Niantic has surprised everyone as they officially released the Gen 4 Pokemon in Pokemon GO.
“The world of Pokémon GO is evolving once again!” the official blog post said. “This week, keep an eye out for Pokémon originally discovered in the Sinnoh region, featured in Pokémon Diamond, Pokémon Pearl, and Pokémon Platinum! Get ready to see Pokémon like Turtwig, Chimchar, and Piplup as they appear in Pokémon GO for the first time ever.”
As of now, only select Pokemon from the Sinnoh region is available in Pokemon GO. However, Niantic has confirmed that more Generation 4 Pokemon will be coming to the game in the next few weeks.
“Pokémon originally discovered in the Sinnoh region will be making their way to Pokémon GO in waves! So, you can look forward to discovering even more Pokémon over the next few weeks appearing in the wild, hatching from Eggs, and battling in raids.” Pokemon Go said.
