Niantic are in the middle of rolling out Gen 5 to Pokemon Go, but which species have already been added? Here’s the full list of Generation 5 Pokemon that can be found in the mobile game.

There have been several rollouts so far (excluding the legends), totalling 134 Pokemon. The first of them was a big one, as 46 species were released as part of the Ultra Bonus Challenge event in September.

There has since been two more released for the Pokemon Go 2019 Halloween event, another three over the Christmas holidays, alongside Cobalion, Terrakion and Virizion as five-star Raid Battles. A further 34 were released alongside the addition of trade evolutions to Pokemon Go. Following that an additional four were released as part of the 2020 Lunar New Year even – and plenty more.


The most recently Legendary additions are Reshiram, Zekrom and Kyurem.

Predictably the Gen 5 starters – Snivy, Tepig and Oshawott – were among the first to be released…

There are still plenty of exciting Generation 5 Pokemon to be released…

When are the next Pokemon from Unova coming?

With 134 Gen 5 ‘mons already in the Pokemon Go world, this means there are still 22 remaining. We would expect all of these, if not all but one or two, to be released within 2020.

This would then keep to pattern of previous generations whereby they have been released over a (roughly) 10 month period. However, Generation 5 added more species to the series than any other, including the 151 Kanto initially brought.

As a result, Niantic may opt to prolong its release, taking it into the latter stages of 2020. This means Gen 6 may only just sneak its way into this year.
