Plus find a festive holiday season Pikachu.
Niantic has announced that new Pokemon from Pokemon Gold and Silver are coming to Pokemon Go.
Starting today, trainers will be able to find Togepi and Pichu in eggs, as well as “select other” Pokemon from Pokemon Gold and Pokemon Silver. As always, trainers can acquire eggs by visiting PokeStops and spinning the image that appears, which can provide Pokeballs, potions, revives, and other items in addition to eggs.
In a blog post on Pokemon Go’s official site, the developer teased that “these are the first of more Pokémon coming to Pokemon Go over the next few months.”
In a statement, The Pokemon Company International’s JC Smith teased that “the opportunity to hatch select Pokémon originally discovered in the Johto region is just the beginning of how more Pokémon will be added to the game for Trainers to continue their Pokemon Go adventures.”
Beyond the new Johto Pokemon, from today through December 29, players will also be able to encounter a special edition Pikachu wearing a “festive hat” in the wild, and Niantic promises the special Piachu “will appear in large quantities during this period.”
This festive Pikachu can be found in-game starting today
