Pokémon Go fans are eagerly looking forward to the day when new Pokémon will be added to the game, especially Pokémon from the second generation. The second generation, introduced with Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal, contains many Pokémon beloved by fans.
Here are a few of our best expectations for second generation Pokémon that could be added to Pokémon Go.
Eevee is an unusual Pokémon in that it can evolve into several different forms, all of which have different elements. So far, only its three Generation 1 evolutions—Flareon, Jolteon, and Vaporeon—are available in Pokémon Go. It seems like a natural choice that when Generation 2 Pokémon are added to the game, Eevee’s Generation 2 evolutions—Espeon and Umbreon—will be among the first to appear.
Other Cross-Gen Evolutions
Eevee isn’t the only Pokémon with evolutions that only arrived in the second generation (or beyond). For example, Golbat, which evolves from Zubat, gained the ability to evolve into Crobat in Generation 2. In the main series, Golbat evolves when your friendship stat with it is high enough. Friendship-based evolution was introduced with Generation 2, and it will be interesting to see if Pokémon Go handles these evolutions differently if a Pokémon like Crobat is added.
In addition to new evolutions, Generation 2 also includes several pre-evolution forms, such as Pichu (baby form of Pikachu), Cleffa (baby form of Clefairy), and Magby (baby form of Magmar), among others.
Popular New Pokémon
While those might be some of the most obvious, Generation 2 was filled with brand-new Pokémon not tied to the previous generation. For example, the owl Pokémon Hoothoot, the lamb-like Mareep, and the fiery dog Houndour all feel like excellent choices to introduce to Pokémon Go.
Meanwhile, we’d love to see how they could implement Unown, the mysterious Pokémon shaped like letters and symbols that show up in the main games’ ruins.
Those are our choices for some of the Generation 2 Pokémon we either want to see in Pokémon go or just think would make sense to add. What second generation Pokémon do you most like to see added to Pokémon Go?
