A massive December update for Pokemon Go is reportedly on the way, delivering “more than 100 new normal and Legendary Pokémon, player-versus-player battles” as well as Pokemon trading and the ability to raise your Pokemon like Tamagotchi. Perhaps the biggest news though is that legendary Pokemon Mew and Mewto are finally expected to appear in the game.
The information comes via an analysis of game code performed by developers associated with the Pokemon map PokeVS, shared with Venture Beat. “PokeVS showed before-and-after comparisons of the code that indicated where the updates are expected to be implemented. This code could change, but as it is, it shows what’s coming.”
All of these features have been discussed publicly by Niantic Labs’ CEO John Hanke already, but no official confirmation of the update has yet been made. According to Venture Beat, a Niantic spokesperson has simply confirmed that “Gen 2” is coming, but didn’t explain what that update will entail.
