The latest update for Pokemon Go has been datamined, and it appears new moves and more second generation Pokemon are on the docket.
According to the data poured over by The Silph Road, 38 news moves, more Avatar customizations, gym radius tweaks, support for Evolution items, more Shiny Pokemon and Pokemon genders, and new Pokemon forms for gen-two Psychic-type Unown were also found.
The Evolution items seems to suggest gen-two versions of current Pokemon are in the works. For example, the Sun Stone evolves Gloom into Bellossom; Sunkern into Sunflora; Cottonee into Whimsicott; Petilil into Lilligant; and turns Helioptile into Heliolisk.
Other items besides the Sun Stone found in the files include: King’s Rock, Metal Coat, Dragon Scale and Upgrade. If you are unfamiliar with these, or need a refresher, hit up Bulbapedia.
Unown is a rather interesting entry,as the Pokemon has a from for each letter of the alphabet along with an exclamation point and question mark. The forms noted in the files are: Unown A-C, Z, question mark and exclamation point. One entry doesn’t contain any information.
A new button seems to be in the works for the in-game menu which will take users to a News section and three new sponsor codes were found (PAN, BBQ, FRYER), suggesting more PokeStops are on the way. Your guess is as good as ours as to which companies these symbols stand for (Panera Bread? Famous Dave’s? KFC? – who knows).
