Major Additions To Pokemon GO Announced


Familiar Faces Are Incoming To The Smartphone App

Pokémon has gone through a massive renaissance over the last year. Besides 2016 being the 20th anniversary of the series, a number of public outreach events took place. Monthly Legendary Pokémon giveaways, brand releases entitled "Pokémon: Sun" and "Pokémon: Moon", (the biggest pre-orders in Nintendo's history), and the launch of the super popular catching game, Pokémon GO.


Now, they're looking to keep the celebration going with a huge announcement.

Anyone who's played any of the handheld games knows that new Pokémon is always something to be excited about. The first time players got a taste of brand new Pokémon after the original 150 was in "Pokémon Gold" and "Pokémon Silver," released in the U.S. in 2000. Bringing forth 100 new creatures, "Gold" and "Silver" took players to a new part of the world called Johto. These new Johto Pokémon are the buddies coming to Pokémon GO.
