The whole Pokemon universe contains around 700 different Pokemon. The mobile game Pokemon Go has just 145 Pokemons available right now, and these 145 pocket monsters are considered as the first generation. Ever since the game was launched, players were asking for more pocket monsters to be added since day one. Not necessarily meaning they have caught them all, maybe they were just wishing to find a different Pokemon that was not in the game.
Pokemon Fans have something to look forward to since the code for the second generation of pocket monsters have been found in the game’s data files. The code contains a new “transform” move and everyone is speculating that Ditto is finally coming to the game. Ditto is one of the original Pokemon and everyone was sad when they found out that Ditto is not in the game. Rumors are pointing out that because of his transform move being so overpowered, Niantic needed to find a way to balance it before releasing the Pokemon.
The code lines show that the next generation of pocket monsters is going to consist of 100 new Pokemon. The code lines have been discovered by TheSliphRoad community. The SliphRoad is a group of data collecting Pokemon Go players. Their focus is to gather data and use it to be able to track and find Pokemon. They are making Pokemon Go player’s life a lot more easier, giving them tips and trick on how to catch the pocket monsters they are looking for.
Even if the second generation of Pokemon is implemented in the games code, that does not mean they are available at the moment. Niantic are still figuring out what needs to be changed before doing that. Niantic Labs is not hurrying with this new update mostly because they don’t want to get it wrong. The main focus of the new addition of second generation Pokemons is to keep the game interesting for their players and to bring new ones at the same time.
