A new Gen2 update Bringing much anticipated features for Pokemon Go is out now, bringing some welcome changes to the game.
Chief among them 80 new Pokemon!!! You can also now easily access your different Poke Balls and berries right from the encounter screen. As pictured below, two new buttons have been added to the screen, saving you the trouble of opening the item list to access these commonly used items. There’s also new music during encounters, and in the world screen.
The Evolve button also looks a bit different when viewing a Pokemon. It now shows a silhouette of the evolution you’ll obtain if you evolve the chosen Pokemon. Notice that the various Pokemon now also have a gender sign attached to them to the right side of the HP bar.
Update notes for the iOS or Android versions don’t go into much further detail about what’s new. Various bugs and typos have been fixed, and if you’re connecting your phone to an Apple Watch, the connection should be more stable.
So the new Pokemon are here. FINALLY. Go catch’em all! Good Luck! check back for all the Gen2 guides in the coming weeks and months.
