Rumors have it that the upcoming second generation of Niantic’s hit augmented reality game “Pokmon GO” may see the arrival more interesting and evolved forms of the pocket monsters.
According to Ranked Boost, the touted update will see more advanced forms of the first-generation pocket monsters. These include Crobat from Golbat, Bellossom from Gloom, Politoed from Poliwhirl, Slowking from Slowpoke, Steelix from Onix, Blissey from Chansey, Kingdra from Seadra, Scizor from Scyther, Porygon2 from Polygon and Espeon and Umbreon from Eevee.
When it comes to combat power (CP), it is believed that Umbreon will have a maximum 1938 stat while Espeon has 1911, and each evolution costs 25 candies. Meanwhile, Blissey with a CP of 921 can be acquired for 50 candies; Kingdra with CP of 2300 for 100 candies; and Crobat with a top CP of 1997 for 100 candies as well.
Moreover, Porygon2 apparently has CP of 2290, Scizor with 1910, Politoed with 2089, Bellossom with 2031, Slowking with 2232 and Steelix with 1754.
Aside the aforementioned Pokemon, the website also shared that there may even be characters first introduced in the games “Pokemon Gold” and “Pokemon Silver.” The list features Chikorita, Cyndaquil, Totodile, Sentret, Hoothoot, Ledyba, Spinarak, Chinchou, Pichu, Togepi and Marill.
Among them, only five have stage 3 evolutions such as Chikorita to Bayleef and then Meganium, Cyndaquil to Quilava to Typhlosion, Totodile to Croconaw to Feraligatr, Mareep to Flaaffy to Ampharos and Hoppip to Skiploom to Jumpluff.
However, since Niantic has yet to officially announce the new content, available information should be taken with a grain of salt.
On a related note, players are deemed to possibly have a better and easier time evolving any chosen Pokmon from their collection using the new Buddy feature. The said system has been confirmed by the developer and will allow gamers to have a Pokmon walking alongside their avatars. As they both move around the map, they will get loot and candies as rewards.
