Pokemon Go Gen 5: First Pokemon from Unova revealed via datamine

Paul Cot

Niantic revealed that Gen 5 was finally coming to Pokemon Go in its Ultra Bonus Challenge announcement but now we may know which Unova Pokemon are coming first.

Renowned Pokemon Go dataminer, Chrales, shared images of various generation 5 Pokemon. It is accompanied by the caption “recently found unova pokémon” which leaves some uncertainty.

Given Chrales’ general content of tweets though, it is reasonable to say it’s likely that this is indeed referring to the first batch of Unova Pokemon that will appear in Pokemon Go.

Trainers are excited about the prospect of Gen 5 coming to Pokemon Go!

The list itself is quite substantial and includes 61 different species, including evolutions. The Unova Pokedex has a total of 156 Pokemon, which suggests that the entirety of this 61 long list won’t be added straight away.

By contrast Gen 4’s first batch only added 26. This did include the starter Pokemon – Turtwig, Chimchar and Piplup – the first of which headlines the Pokemon Go September Community Day. It also included the regional birds but didn’t add any legendaries, which isn’t exactly surprising.

We can expect to see a similar number added when Gen 5 is finally added on September 16. This will be the third bonus week of the Ultra Bonus Challenge.
