Pokémon GO Johto Update Announced!on February 16, 2017 by Max Williams
Over 80 Pokémon from Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver are due to be introduced very soon in the Pokémon GO Johto update! There will also be a bunch of extra gameplay features added, such as new Berries and new trainer customisation options! Watch the trailer below:
This is big news, and likely to cause a huge resurgence in Pokémon Go! Including Pokémon from the Johto region will allow some of the Kanto region Pokémon to evolve, as well as introducing some more gender-specific variations.
To help out with catching them all, there’ll be new Evolution items available at PokéStops and some new berries too. Spinning the Photo Disc at PokéStops will allow you to pick up some Nanab and Pinap Berries. Nanab Berries slow down a Pokémon’s movements, making it easier to catch, while Pinap Berries will double the amount of Candy you’ll get if your next catch succeeds. That sounds like a winning combination! When you face a Pokémon in an encounter, you’ll be able to select Berries and Poké Balls directly on the encounter screen to make the process easier.
Finally, there’ll be a whole load more hats, shirts, and other items to customise your trainer with.
Pokémon GO is free to download on iOS and Android devices. Look out for the update later this week!
