Takeaways from the leak

The general expectation from the Gen 8 Pokedex was that around 100 Pokemon would be added. This list adds 131 Pokemon, not including Meltan and Melmetal.

One of the many concept designs for the final evolutions of Grookey, Scorbunny and Sobble…

Starter evolutions

Much speculation has surrounded the evolutions of Grookey, Scorbunny and Sobble. Officially, they have been the only Pokemon confirmed the 2019 game.

The list suggests Grookey will evolve into a pure grass-type, Scorbunny a dual fire and steel and Sobble water and ghost. Respectively their final evolutions are called Chimpongo, Moltare and Fearliz.


Eevee evolutions

Much has been made about the potential new Eevee evolutions or as they’re often referred to as “eeveelutions”. Pokemon trainers will be excited to see the list includes two new ones – a ground and steel-type. The ground-type is called Quakeon and the steel-type Titaneon.

Galarian forms

Much like Alolan forms where Pokemon already in existence adapt to the Alola region, there are 17 Galarian forms which adapt to Galar.

More dubious Pokemon trainers are questioning the list saying that some of the names seem too simplistic – suggesting the list is fake. One example of this is Fearliz which is a play on Sobble’s clear placidity. Others look to the overly simplistic Eevee evolution names of Quakeon and Titaneon.


One Twitter user noted that the names of the Pokemon are in English from a Japanese source – which certainly questions the legitimacy of the leak.

We may find out whether the list is true, or somewhat true, at this week’s Pokemon Direct (June 5).


While the whole Pokedex probably won’t be revealed, we will likely get confirmation of some of these Pokemon.

Pokemon Go Autumn event – Start time, new Gen 5 Pokemon, bonuses, more

Published: 8/Oct/2020 1:57 Updated: 8/Oct/2020 1:59

by Paul Cot


To celebrate the change of season, Niantic is hosting an autumn-themed Pokemon Go event. A new Gen 5 Pokemon will be introduced as well as other bonuses.

The 2020 Pokemon Go autumn event starts on Friday, October 9, 8 am PDT and finishes on Monday, October 12, 1 pm PDT. That’s an 11 am EDT start for those on the east coast of the US and 4 pm BST for those residing in the UK.


To the surprise of nobody, the event will feature various fall-themed Pokemon. These ‘mons can be found in the wild and in eggs when you hatch them.

Double effective Berries

Elsewhere, autumn is the time harvest and that seemingly applies to Pokemon Go, too. As a result, Berries can be found more often when spinning PokeStops. There will also be berry-themed Field and Timed Research.


During the event, all Berries will be twice as effective when giving them to your Buddy Pokemon as treats. Perhaps more excitingly, however, is that Pinap Berries will also become doubly as effective.

This means that instead of just double Candy when capturing a Pokemon, you’ll actually get four times the amount! Other Berries such as the Razz variety won’t be doubly as effective, though.

Autumn-themed Pokemon

Meanwhile, the following Pokemon will be appearing more frequently in the wild:

  • Oddish
  • Vulpix
  • Bayleef
  • Hoothoot
  • Sudowoodo
  • Yanma
  • Pineco
  • Zigzagoon
  • Seedot
  • Shroomish
  • Plant Cloak Burmy
  • Foongus

Others will be appearing in 5km eggs but those Pokemon weren’t released in the Pokemon Go blog post.

Additionally, Shiny Vulpix will be spawning more often. The ever-popular Fox Pokemon has already had its Shiny form released previously but few trainers will want to miss out on the chance to get another or even their first!

Deerling Pokemon Go
Deerling changes color depending on what seasonal form it is…


As is very apt for the change of season, Deerling will be introduced to the world of Pokemon Go for the first time. The Season Pokemon has four forms – Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter – so expect to come across its autumn variant.


It evolves into Sawsbuck, which has the same four forms, also. Deerling needs 50 Candy to evolve, so if you want to get Sawsbuck during the event you’ll need to catch as many Deerling as possible. When using a Pinap Berry though, you’ll only need to catch five of them!

There’s plenty to look forward to in Pokemon Go during October. Charmander is coming to a Community Day a second time with the exclusive move Dragon Breath and there is even a surprise Raid Boss to look forward to at the end of the month.
