WATCH | Niantic just made its biggest announcement yet for its popular augmented reality app.
Pichu and Togepi are first up
The second generation of Pokémon, located in the Johto region as introduced by the series' Gold and Silver versions, are coming to the game starting today.
Pichu and Togepi are among the first available to be hatched in the app, with the rest of the creatures from the generation coming over the span of several months. No further details were given.
To promote the holiday season, a special-edition Pikachu is also available until the end of the month, which can be seen and caught in the wild.
The app has been consistently updating features, including adding Ditto and fixed tracking.
Partnerships with Sprint and Starbucks added new Pokéstops, among other benefits.
The speculation of Legendary creatures being available has yet to be addressed, but with the consistent updates and announcements seen in the past month alone, perhaps this will be something to be touched on in the near future.
