Pokémon from the series’ sixth generation, including popular Kalos starters Froakie, Chespin, and Fennekin, are finally on the verge of being added to the Pokemon Go Pokedex, developers Niantic have confirmed.

So far in Pokemon Go, regions like Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, Unova, Alola, and Galar have had their time in the spotlight. Now it’s finally Kalos’ turn.

Niantic has confirmed as many as 17 new Pokemon will be added to the handheld game during the December event. This includes the previously listed Kalos starter Pokemon and, of course, their first and second stage evolutions.

The update will add one of the most popular Pokemon in the franchise, Greninja, who ranked as this year’s fan-voted Pokemon of the Year. Kalos fave Talonflame ⁠— an iconic competitive monster ⁠— will also be included.

Other Kalos critters confirmed in Niantic’s next expansion include Bunnelby, Diggersby, Fletchling, Fletchinder, Litleo, and Pyroar (both forms).

Greninja, the 2020 Pokemon of the Year, is finally coming to Pokemon Go in December.

Niantic has also confirmed Klefki, the Steel/Fairy Pokemon, will also be coming to Pokemon Go in the December event. The key-shaped Pokemon will be region-locked, however; trainers will only be able to catch Klefki in France.

The rest of the Kalos Pokemon will be widely available. Pokemon trainers can find them in the wild, through egg breeding, or by evolving basic stage Pokemon.

The initial update is only adding a small number of Kalos Pokemon. Niantic is expected to roll out more of the sixth-generation region’s critters throughout 2021, in a fashion similar to their last few expansions.

  • Quilladin

Niantic also mentioned Mega Evolutions in the December notes. While it may just be a reference point for Kalos itself, the devs may also be teasing the popular Pokemon feature’s arrival in their global game ⁠— we’ll have to wait and see!

In other Pokemon Go news, the devs are also shifting the level cap up to 50 in January. The new level shift marks the first time since the title was first released in 2016 that trainers will be able to level up past level 40, the game’s original rank.

If you’re looking to one-shot enemies in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War with a shotgun, there’s an incredible Hauer 77 loadout that will help you dominate your Multiplayer matches in no time. 

Shotguns are back in the secondary slot in Treyarch‘s Black Ops Cold War and players are loving the one-shot potential of the weapons. Currently, there are only two shotguns in-gamem with those being the Gallo SA12 and Hauer 77.

When comparing the weapons, the Hauer 77 comes out on top for base firepower but the Gallo SA12 has a significantly faster rate of fire. Both have their place in Multiplayer, but when making your choice consider your playstyle and which weapon suits you best.

The Hauer 77 is the shotty players unlock first at level 7 and is the weapon we’ll be covering today. Here’s one of the best loadouts for the Hauer 77.

There are multiple great attachment options for the Hauer 77.

Best Hauer 77 loadout in Black Ops Cold War

Here’s how you need to kit out your Hauer 77 shotgun for the most effective multiplayer loadout.

Hauer 77 loadout Attachments

  • Muzzle: Duckbill Choke
  • Barrel: 25.2 Task Force
  • Body: SWAT 5mW Laser Sight
  • Stock: Shotgun Stock
  • Handle: Serpent Wrap

Primary Weapon

  • M16

Perks

  • Perk 1: Tactical Mask + Flak Jacket
  • Perk 2: Scavenger + Tracker
  • Perk 3: Ninja + Gung-Ho

Wild Card

  • Perk Greed

Equipment

  • Lethal: Frag Grenade
  • Tactical: Stimshot
  • Field Upgrade: Trophy System

This loadout strictly focuses on dominating opponents at close range with the shotgun. The Task Force Barrell increases the Hauer’s damage output at close quarters by 45%. Alongside the SWAT 5mW Laser Sight, the weapon has unbelievably effective hip-fire. The addition of the Shotgun Stock increases sprint to fire time by 15%. This allows players to run around the map and pull out their gun with ease when it’s needed.

In terms of choosing a primary weapon, the M16 provides this loadout with a medium to long-range option for players. However, the M16 is replaceable with any other assault rifle you prefer.

The M16 provides players with a long to medium range option.

In terms of perks, the six slots provided by Perk Greed allows this class to shine at close range while remaining undetected by enemies. On top of this, the Hauer struggles with its ammo usage so running Scavenger eliminates this issue. The addition of Flak Jacket and Tactical Mask makes this combination heavily resistant to enemy equipment and capable of clearing areas quickly.

Finally, the equipment choices are fairly standard but running Stimshot in the tactical slot is a must. After rushing into a room and taking multiple close-quarter gunfights, the Stimshot is ideal in preparing for your next encounter with an enemy.

Now, all there’s to do is make this Hauer 77 loadout and try it out in Multiplayer for yourself.
