The new update is coming any day now but there are even more exciting prospects coming to Pokémon Go when Gen 2 is released.
We know that with Gen 2 we’ll get 100 new Pokémon such as Hoppip, Marill, and Wooper but that’s not all. Gen 2 will also feature baby Pokémon.
In the original Pokémon games, baby Pokémon weren’t caught, they were bred so it is likely that users will only be able to attain them by hatching them. Not every Gen 1 Pokémon has a baby Pokémon that came before it but the ones that do are Pikachu (Pichu), Clefairy (Cleffa), Jigglypuff (Igglybuff), Electabuzz (Elekid), Snorlax (Munchlax), Magmar (Magby), Hitmonlee (Tyrogue), Jinx (Smoochum), Mr. Mime (Mime Jr.), and Chansey (Happiny). Togepi is also a Gen 2 exclusive baby Pokémon that you might remember as Misty’s little egg-shaped pal from the TV show.
According to GameNGuide,
“These are basically Pokémon which are hatched from an egg through Pokémon breeding and will continue the legacy of evolution of some Pokémon which includes Onyx, Zubat, Chansey and Evee. Since breeding is limited only to very few Pokémons, it is not likely that these can be bred in order to produce Legendary types.”
Thanks to Pokémon Go Hub, we have a possible egg chart that features baby Pokémon from Gen 2:
There are lots of exciting new features coming soon. The Buddy System feature is coming any day now, trading is possibly coming in October, and special incense types are coming at some point down the road as well.
