4. 100 new Pokémon?
According to various sources, Niantic is reportedly planning a huge Pokémon Go update for December that will include more than 100 new common and Legendary Pokémon. Among the new Legendary Pokémon are Mew and Mewtwo, and there may be Gen 2 Pokémon as well.
This was revealed by an analysis of the game’s code by people associated with web-scanner PokeVS, which showed before-and-after comparisons of the code. It remains to be seen if the update will come all at once or over time. Perhaps we can look forward to an advent calendar of new Pokémon.
