Pokémon Go adds new Gen 5 Pokémon today

The next generation of Pokémon, originating from the Unova region, are coming to Pokémon Go today, Sept. 16. That means new Pokémon that originally debuted in Pokémon Black and Pokémon White will start spawning in the wild, appearing in raids, and hatching from eggs. Some of those new Pokémon are exclusive to raid battles and certain areas of the world.


Here’s which Pokémon are confirmed to appear in the wild with Pokémon Go’s latest update: Snivy, Tepig, Oshawott, Patrat, Lillipup, Purrloin, Pidove, and Blitzle. Patrat and Lillipup can also appear in shiny form.

Some of those Pokémon, and others, can be hatched from eggs. Here’s a breakdown:

  • 2 km Eggs: Patrat, Lillipup, Purrloin, Pidove
  • 5 km Eggs: Snivy, Tepig, Oshawott, Blitzle, Drilbur, Foongus
  • 10 km Eggs: Ferroseed, Klink, Litwick, Golett, Deino

Lillipup, Patrat, and Klink will also appear in raids, and at least for now, Klink will be exclusive to raids and eggs — it won’t appear in the wild.

Other Pokémon can only be caught in certain parts of the world. Here are the confirmed region-exclusive Unova Pokémon coming to Pokémon Go:

  • Asia-Pacific: Pansage, the Grass Monkey Pokémon
  • Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and India: Pansear, the High Temp Pokémon
  • The Americas and Greenland: Panpour, the Spray Pokémon
  • Western hemisphere: Heatmor, the Anteater Pokémon
  • Eastern hemisphere: Durant, the Iron Ant Pokémon

Some artwork and a new teaser trailer for the new Unova Pokémon appears to confirm many more additions to Pokémon Go: Audino, Timburr, Conkeldurr, Tympole, Palpitoad, Seismitoad, Throh, Sewaddle, Leavanny, Whirlipede, Cottonee, Whimsicott, Petilil, Dwebble, Crustle, Scraggy, Scrafty, and Yamask, as well as Legendary Pokémon Cobalion, Terrakion, and Virizion.

Evolving the new Gen 5 Pokémon will require an Unova Stone, similar to the Sinnoh Stone item introduced in Pokémon Go last year. Trainers will be able to earn Unova Stones by completing Research Breakthroughs, the weekly rewards that can be earned by completing daily Research Tasks.
