Update: Pokémon Go version 0.57.2 is now rolling out. The update introduces a night mode map, new berries, new encounter mechanics and — what we’ve all been waiting for — 80 new Pokémon! Read all of the details below and look out for the new build in the Play Store in the coming days.
Last week when Niantic Labs announced its Valentine’s Day event for Pokémon Go, we openly wondered why the developer was not making much of an effort to add real, substantial new content to the game since it launched in July 2016. Well, it looks like that day is finally arriving. Niantic has revealed plans for a huge Pokémon Go update that will add, among other things, a ton of new Pokémon to catch.

A few months ago, people who dived into the code of the game discovered evidence that over 100 new Pokémon creatures were about to be added to Pokémon Go. As it turned out, Niantic only added a few new creatures to catch in December. This week, the developer says that the floodgates will open with over 80 creatures being added, which come from the Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver console games. Also, some creatures will have some gender-specific variants to find and catch. In addition to all the new Pokémon that you can find hiding in your neighborhood, some of the older Pokémon from the Kanto region will be able to “evolve” into creatures from the Johto region, with the help of Evolution items that can be found at PokéStops.
