Evolution in Pokémon Go can be a pain due to the Candy process that it involves. Even more so in the case of rarer Pokémon, as it's twice as hard to come up with the rewuired amount of Candy, and they usually require a large amount. In this case, it is definitely helpful for Trainers to know ahead of time which Pokémon will be released in the mobile game next so they can start walking the pals they need to now.
One of the most exciting prospects in the last few months has been the release of Generation 4 Pokémon. Before coming to Pokémon Go, the Sinnoh creatures originally appeared in Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl.
This is the fourth batch of Generation 4 Pokémon to be released in Niantic's augmented reality game. We know that they are coming and their identities thanks to Chrales, a respected Dataminer for Pokémon Go. It seems that Trainers wwill have their chance to capturing one of these four Sinnoh creatures - Yanmega, Tangrowth, Bonsly, and Croagunk. These guys are relatives to Yanma, Tangela, and Sudowoodo, respectively, so it will be exciting for Trainers who have these Pokémon currently to take their Poképals to the next level, or for those who don't to go out and search for them!
Even though only four new creatures were discovered, Charles' datamining also discovered the holiday options for Pikachu's evolution, Raichu. This is a different image than the Raichu with the Christmas hat some Trainers might have earned from evolving Holiday Pikachu. You can view these images as well as the four new Sinnoh species in the tweets below. Let us know your thoughts!
