Today Pokemon Go developer Niantic announced that 80 new Pokemon are coming to Pokemon Go later this week. The new Pokemon will be from the Johto region found on GameBoy games Pokémon Gold, Silver and Crystal. This means it will finally be possible to obtain Pokemon such as Chikorita, Cyndaquil and Totodile.
Niantic state that Pokemon Go will also have 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.
In addition new berries will also be introduced. Trainers will 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.
A new new avatars and an expanded Wardrobe will also be introduced, allowing trainers to give their avatar a complete upgrade, with a whole new selection of hats, shirts, pants, and other items.
