Good news, Pokémon GO patrons!
Those still playing the augmented-reality game might have something to look forward to in the near future, after reports of 100 new Pokémon and the existence of Ditto surfaced recently.
The Silph Road claims that after auditing the Android application package (or APK) of the game's latest update v0.45.0, Ditto's move "Transform" has been added to the game, and Pokédex entries #152 (which is Chikorita) to #251 (Celebi) have been referenced in its code, among other developments.
With the hit game having somewhat plateaued, a major update is sorely needed to bring back aspiring Pokémon masters. And the simplest and most effective way to do just that is with more pocket monsters for catching.
That said, FHM lists the new Pokémon that would make us pick up our phones and wander the streets again (Stay safe!):
Gen. 2's version of Charizard. No offense to Meganium (from Chikorita) and Typhlosion (Cyndaquil), but let's be honest, Totodile's final form is the only one worth taking seriously.
Even the toughest of men couldn't resist the charm of this little guy. Although Niantic might experience difficulty like Ditto's "Transform" move, this time with "Metronome."
One of the biggest mysteries in the Pokémon world—looks like a tree but is actually a Rock-type. It's like production took a break while thinking of the oddity, and came back with something else in mind.
Additional Eevee-lutions (Umbreon, Espeon)
The reason we are still saving up on Eevee candies. It would be interesting to see how the game's developers add an Easter egg like the Sparky-Pyro-Rainer reference when choosing between the Dark and Light evolutions.
Aside from being a Normal/Psychic-type, what makes this long-necked such a curious case is its tail that has a mind of its own. Goes to show that even in fictional worlds, two heads are better than one.
How to make a gigantic rock snake creature more scary? Turn it into a Steel-type and put a meaner (and creepier) face.
Honestly, we just want something to help us oust Dragonite swarms in Gyms. The final evolution of Horsea is an underrated option to combat its fellow Dragon-types.
Baby Pokémon (Smoochum, Elekid, Magby)
Tired of getting Jynx, Electabuzz, and Magmar from your 10K eggs? Their adorable infatile counterparts are sure to bring a smile to your face especially if your catch or hatch one.
When Gen. 2 was introduced, the dinosaur-like monster became an instant favorite. The intimidating sight of its armored build is enough to draw (as well as scare) trainers.
Of course, who could forget the pink blob? It's high time to introduce the master of mimicry, which we think is also the key to reviving the game.
