New Pokemon in Pokemon Go arrive in a variety of ways, including in special Events and Updates. Below is a history of the new Pokemon added to Pokemon Go.
Pokemon Go February 2017 Update
Niantic and The Pokemon Company announced on February 15, 2017 that more than 80 new Pokemon from Generation Two–Pokemon Gold and Pokemon Silver–would begin to appear “later this week.”
It’s assumed the Legendary Pokemon won’t appear in the wild, but will be obtainable through Events in the future. This update also includes new Evolution Items and Berries with different effects.
See a list of the new Pokemon Go Pokemon available below.
Not counting the Pokemon already released or the Legendary Pokemon from Johto leaves us with 87 Pokemon from Gen 2. Because the announcement says “more than 80,” a very large majority of these Pokemon, if not all, are available.
