With the Water Festival ending and the legendary Water-type Kygore leaving legendary raid battles, Pokemon GO has seen fit to introduce a new third-generation legendary in the form of the Ice-type, Regice. Part of the legendary Pokemon golem trio composed of it, Regirock, and Registeel, the aforementioned titans were first introduced in theRuby and Sapphire games. Pokemon GO‘s addition of the golems follows rumors that leaked online last night of the trio being added to the game. While only Niantic knew in what form and how last night, the company officially revealed it in-game this morning with the following message: “Feel the CHILL! The Legendary Ice-type Pokemon Regice has come to Raid Battles until July 19.”The announcement reveals that players will have nearly a month to add the new legendary to their roster, and presumably, Regirock or Registeel will filter in afterward.

When Mew was finally added to Pokemon GO as part of the first Special Research quest, it meant that players could finally complete their Kanto region Pokedex (assuming they were willing to do a bit of globe-trotting to catch the region exclusives). However, at the time of this writing, it’s currently impossible for anyone to complete their Johto or Hoenn Pokedex, as there are still some Pokemon are that are simply missing from the game. Here are all the Pokemon currently missing from Pokemon GO, and the likely reasons why they have yet to be added to the popular mobile game.Generation 2 – Johto Region Generation 2 is currently missing two Pokemon in Pokemon GO. The first is Pokedex 235, Smeargle, which is a normal-type Pokemon. Smeargle’s move is Sketch, which allows it to use whatever attack was just used by its opponent.

Nearly two years after its initial launch, and Pokemon GO finally added the mythical Pokemon Mew to the game as part of a Special Research quest. This eight-step quest challenged players to complete specific tasks in Pokemon GO, with the final reward being an encounter with Mew, allowing players to fully complete their Kanto region Pokedex for the first time.

With that in mind, here are some possibilities as to which Pokemon will be featured in the next Special Research quest.Generation 2 The most obvious choice is Celebi. Datamining efforts have … [Read more...] about Pokemon GO: What Will Be the Next Special Research Quest?
Pokemon GO players who have been collecting Field Research stamps every day since the feature went live should be reaching their next breakthrough tomorrow, April 19. However, thanks to some players exploiting a time zone trick with their phones, we already know what the April 19 Field Research rewards have in store. Unfortunately for anyone hoping that the rewards would be something different this week, it looks like the Field Research rewards for the third week are the same as weeks 1 and 2. On the downside, this means that Pokemon GO players who have yet to add Articuno or Zapdos to their collection will still have some time to wait. On the brightside, those who have yet to catch Moltres will have another chance, and those that already have the fire-type legendary bird in their possession can use the extra candy to level up their Pokemon.An encounter with the legendary Pokemon Moltres isn’t the only thing Pokemon GO players have to look forward to tomorrow. Anyone … [Read more...] about Pokemon GO: April 19 Field Research Breakthrough Rewards Revealed
Not too long ago, the developer Niantic released a fresh trailer for Pokemon GO mimicking the tone and style of the BBC’s Planet Earth documentary series, with the video potentially teasing that Masquerain could be coming to the popular mobile augmented reality game. Speaking of new Pocket Monsters, a recent datamine recently revealed that a new Legendary creature is on deck to be added to PoGO as well. According to a datamine posted by Pokemon GO‘s The Silph Road subreddit user known as “Chrales,” not only does it look like Castform and all of its permutations will make its way into the game soon, but also it appears as if Deoxys is set to become the title’s next Legendary. In the case of Deoxys’ inclusion in PoGO, those players who were expecting Rayquaza to be the next Legendary will likely be quite surprised.
