New characters and lure modules coming to Pokemon GO
Although it might have been faded from the spotlight a bit, Pokemon GO is still alive and kicking. Its latest update comes with quite a few changes, the most important ones being the general availability of more Pokemon originally discovered in the Sinnoh region, three upgraded Lure Modules, and much more.
Without further ado, these are the highlights of the latest Pokemon GO update:
- More Pokemon from Sinnoh available to catch in the wild and hatch from Eggs, including Hippopotas, Gible, Cherubi, and others.
- A new Ground-type Charged Attack, namely Earth Power.
- Three new Lure Modules: Glacial, Mossy, and Magnetic.
- When Trainers are within range of a PokéStop with one of the lures above active, if that lure is of the appropriate type and they can spin its Photo Disc, Evolution of Magneton and Nosepass will be enabled. Even more, certain Evolutions of Eevee can also be enabled.
Originally released in early July 2016, Pokemon GO is available for both iOS and Android handsets. Thanks to its popularity all over the world, the game was able to hit the 1 billion downloads milestone in February 2019 and currently has over 145 million active users. By December 2018, this title had managed to gross over US$3 billion in worldwide revenue.
