Pokemon GO

Following yesterday’s update, new Pokemon are now live in Pokemon GO. The mobile game has added creatures originally discovered in the Sinnoh region, includong Turtwig, Chimchar, and Piplup.

Niantic says that new Pokemon will be rolled out in waves. These monsters will show up “over the next few weeks appearing in the wild, hatching from Eggs, and battling in raids.”


Niantic started rolling out the fourth generation of Pokemon in Pokemon GO today. Not all of them will be easy to catch, however. Based on early reports, new region-exclusive Pokemon have been added. Carnivine, Chatot, and Pachirisu are the Pokemon involved here.

Early player activity indicates that Carnivine is located in the southeastern United States. Florida, Maryland, and Georgia are among the states where the grass-type Pokemon are located.

Pokemon GO’s next notable update has gone live. On iOS, it’s version 1.91.1. Android users can access version 0.123.2.

The new update paves the way for Sinnoh region Pokemon, stat changes, and more. We’ve posted the official patch notes below.

Pokemon GO is still chugging along and seems to be doing quite well. After generating $84.8 million in September, it ranked at the fourth spot among all apps in terms of revenue.

Pokemon GO’s revenue is up 89% year-over-year. Furthermore, the app’s gross revenue was its highest since November 2017. Revenue also increased 15% from august.
