Download the huge ‘Pokemon Go’ Generation 3 update right now
Just two days after announcing that 50 new Pokemon from the Hoenn region would be making their way to the world of Pokemon Go, Niantic has released a new update for the game. If you ever played Pokemon Ruby or Sapphire, you should be familiar with most of these critters, including starters Mudkip, Torchic and Treecko.
The rollout of Generation 3 actually began over Halloween, as five Ghost-type Pokemon debuted in-game. There will be 135 new Pokemon in all this generation, but they’ll make their way into the game in waves, similar to how Niantic handled the introduction of Gen 2 back in February. But the new Pokemon are just a portion of the update.
