Are you getting tired of seeing the same Pokemon appear when you’re playing Pokemon GO? We suppose at the start it was kind of exciting to see Pokemon in “real-life”, but given how many months it has been since the game was released, we’re sure that many gamers are looking forward to more new features.

The good news is that your wish will soon come true. In an announcement on the Pokemon GO website, Niantic has revealed that an upcoming update will add 80 new Pokemon to the game. “More than 80 Pokémon that were originally discovered in the Johto region in the Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver video games, as well as Pokémon with gender-specific variations, will start rolling out in Pokémon GO.”

Niantic is also teasing new evolutions where there are now opportunities than before to evolve your Pokemon. For example some Pokemon discovered in the Kanto region will be able to evolve into those that stay in the Johto region. Other new features added to the game include new Encounter gameplay, new berries, and new avatars and an expanded wardrobe.

That being said there is no mention of trading or PvP battles, but as per our previous report, those are features that are expected to arrive in 2017 in future updates.
