Pokemon GO – Gen 4 Might Be Released in June

There might not have been enough time since Niantic launched Generation 3 Pokemon in the game for trainers to catch them all, but people are still waiting the next generation. Even though there is no official release date, the fourth generation of Pokemon is expected to arrive soon.

Release schedule

The handheld games took years in-between new generation releases, however Pokemon GO already has all the ideas and assets, so of course we will get new Pokemon in the game quicker. The mobile game started with only Gen 1, then Gen 2 was released in February-March 2017 and finally the first selection of Gen 3 in July-August. The release of the whole third generation is still ongoing.

Niantic has changed their schedule for releasing new Pokemon, though, however a new batch should be here really soon. According to the release calendar, Niantic will probably start teasing Generation 4 in May or June and then mass release it in June/July. If not, though, then surely it will happen by August or September.

New Evolutions

The Generation 4 release is smaller than the previous generations because of all the new evolutions to already-existing Pokemon from all 3 previous generations. Therefore, the following evolutions will be able to happen.

  • Eevee → Leafeon/Glaceon
  • Magneton → Magnezone
  • Electabuzz → Electivire
  • Magmar → Magmortar
  • Lickitung → Lickilicky
  • Tangela → Tangrowth
  • Rhydon → Rhyperior
  • Aipom → Ambipom
  • Gligar → Gliscor
  • Misdreavus → Mismagius
  • Murkrow → Honchcrow
  • Piloswine → Mamoswine
  • Sneasel → Weavile
  • Togetic → Togekiss
  • Porygon 2 → Porygon-Z
  • Yanma → Yanmega
  • Dusclops → Dusknoir
  • Kirlia (male) → Gallade
  • Roselia → Roserade
  • Nosepass → Probopass
  • Snorunt (female) → Froslass

Release date & Upcoming event

Keep in mind that there is no official announcement from Niantic regarding Generation 4 getting released in the timeframe we said, so even though chances are quite high, there is always the slight possibility we are wrong with the prediction.

Anyhow, while waiting, players can enjoy a new Community Day event! On March 25th, from 11 AM EST to 5 PM EST, Pokemon GO fans will be able to capture a rare Pokemon that knows a unique special move!

When do you think Generation 4 will go live? Will you be participating in the event? Tell us your thoughts in the comments! As always, stay tuned for more news regarding Pokemon GO!
