Gen 4 Pokemon have been appearing in Pokemon Go since they were first introduced in October 2018. However, the Eevee evolutions, Leafeon and Glaceon still aren’t available…

Remaining Gen 4 Pokemon

It’s no secret that the Eevee evolutions are some of the more popular Pokemon. Even with the remaining Gen 4 legendary Pokemon yet to be released, Pokemon fans still query the whereabouts of Leafeon and Glaceon ahead of them.

With, at the time of writing, only 27 Gen 4 Pokemon yet to be released, we should be expecting the remaining over the coming months. Given the popularity of both Leafeon and Glaceon, it seems more than likely that Niantic will create separate events for each of them.

Where are Leafeon and Glaceon?

There has been no official announcements regarding either Leafeon or Glaceon from Niantic thus far. This means their whereabouts is only speculation at this point.

It had been rumored that as part of the Pokemon Go Equinox event leak, that the grass-type evolved form of Eevee, Leafeon, would be introduced. This proved not to be true, which was surprising to some considering the event was made around grass-type Pokemon.

Glaceon and Leafeon’s Pokemon Go arrival is imminent…

Nevertheless, this only increases the hype for both of them. Bi-weekly events have been a welcomed addition to Pokemon Go in 2019. It is one of these that look the most likely to host the introduction of them.

Additionally, Niantic recently announced an array of live Pokemon Go events, which will take place in Dortmund, Chicago and an unnamed location in Asia. It could be Niantic are saving the long awaited grass and ice-type Eevee evolutions for an event of this magnitude.

If not, with summer closing in, there are plenty of opportunities to introduce Leafeon. However, with Glaceon being an ice-type it would seem more suited to a winter event. Would Niantic dare make Pokemon Go players wait until the winter of 2019 to get their hands on Glaceon? Time will tell.

A Pokemon Sword & Shield cosplayer made waves on TikTok after sharing her mind-blowing transformation in Gen 8’s Water-type Gym Leader, Nessa.

The Pokemon franchise entered its eighth generation with the release of Sword & Shield on the Nintendo Switch. The 2019 RPG introduced players to a whole new cast of characters and was the debut of the Galar region.

A talented cosplayer celebrated the game by bringing popular character Nessa to life with an insanely accurate portrayal. The artist’s stunning video transformation into the Gym Leader will leave fans of the Water-type Trainer in awe.

At the start of the Gen 8 title, the protagonist receives an invitation to the Pokemon League by reigning Champion Leon. On the player’s quest to become the very best, they face off against a host of new Gym Leaders – including Nessa of Hulbury.

Cosplayer ‘nerdtasticmel’ made a splash on Instagram after sharing her incredible true-to-life take on the Trainer. The artist faithfully recreated the heroine’s signature two-piece white and blue Galar league uniform.

Mel’s re-creation of the attire is full of little details, such as the water drop logo on her crop top and the number 049 on her swim shorts. She also faithfully included the character’s belly button chain accessory which wraps around her stomach.

Despite only releasing at the end of 2019, the eighth gen RPG is already the third-highest selling game in the entire franchise. Proof that Pokemon’s addicting “Gotta Catch ‘Em All” design is more popular than it’s ever been.

In October, the title got its second major DLC expansion, The Crown Tundra. While it’s unclear if the add-on will be the last content the Switch release gets, the update closed out the Galar region with an epic finale.
