New Pokemon Announced For ‘Pokemon Go’

Pokemon Go is finally getting a new batch of Pokemon, just in time for the holidays.

Developer Niantic has announced that starting today, second generation Pokemon such as Togepi, Pichu, and several others will begin hatching from eggs, which is currently the only way to attain them. This is the first wave of new Pokemon being added to the game, with more from Gen 2 to follow in the coming months.

In addition, players will also be able to find a special edition Pikachu sporting a Santa hat from now through December 29, 2016. Considering I haven’t even been able to find a normal Pikachu yet, I am holding out little hope of finding this one, but it’s still a neat edition regardless and could convince lapsed players to pick the game up again over the holidays.
