First snow of the season here in the northeast, but because it's tied to a winter storm the app is stuck on "Extreme" until the advisory is over tomorrow morning.

Trainers,

Starting later this week, Treecko, Torchic, Mudkip, and several more Pokémon originally discovered in the Hoenn region in the Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire video games will start appearing in Pokémon GO for the first time ever—with even more to be discovered over the next several weeks!

There's new baby Pokémon in Azurill and Wynaut (which become Marill and Wobuffet), but otherwise they're all new.

Munchlax is Gen 4, yeah. There's several new baby Pokémon there, as well as some third-stage evolutions to existing monsters. But everything else Gen 3 is unique to that generation.

Munchlax is indeed Gen 4. The Sinnoh dex has a lot of pokemon that are related to previous ones: Rhyperior, Tangrowth, Magmortar, Electavire, Porygon-Z, etc. There's like 25 pokemon that are evolutions or baby forms of Gen 1-3 pokemon.

Edit: And that's pretty much the last time it happens. With the sole exception of Sylveon in the Kalos dex, all new pokemon past Gen 4 are brand new unless you count mega-evolutions and Alolan forms.

In no particular order:

Magnezone (Magneton, location-based), Electivire (Electabuzz, the Electrilizer item), Magmortar (Magmar, the Magmarizer item), Probospass (Nosepass, location-based), Mamoswine (Piloswine, level-up while knowing Ancient Power), Rhyperior (Rhydon, the Protector item), Tangrowth (Tangela, level-up while knowing Ancient Power), Lickilicky (Lickitung, level-up while knowing Rollout), Weavile (Sneasel, the Razor Claw item), Dusknoir (Duslops, the Reaper Cloth item), Yanmega (level-up while knowing Ancient Power), Roserade (the Shiny Stone item), Mismagius (Misdreavus, the Dusk Stone item), Honchkrow (Murkrow, the Dusk Stone item), Togekiss (Togetic, the Shiny Stone item), Frosslass (female Snorunt, the Dawn Stone item), and Glaceon and Leafeon (Eevee, location-based).

Edit: Well, those aren't all 3rd-stage, but all of the evolutions of preexisting monsters.

Caught two Zangoose today. They are kinda pointless for gyms but drat they look cool.

I have to admit I wasn't thrilled with Mudkip till I saw him, and now that cute fucker is possibly my next tattoo.

Firechicken has the best loving run around when you josh a ball, I intentionally threw a few bad ones to see it again!

Now have a Rhydon with Surf for a charge move, because why not? Is Waterfall any good for Gyarados?

edit: Skitty is also awesomely cute, but the worm is very odd looking. If I evolve him night or day, is that how you get the different evolutions?

Rhydon having Surf is the weirdest move combo. What benefit does that serve that ground or rock moves can't cover already?

From a defending Rhydon it'll be a nice surprise against ground-type attackers or those rock types with a fighting move such as other Rhydon.

For the first time in my city, non-sponsored locations that already had an EX raid got.. An EX raid. That is a terrible sentence. Tired.

Three repeat locations. One far east, one far west, one down in one of those small-city-in-a-big-city places.

Surprisingly, I got a pass. This is my 5th, and assuming I catch it, my 4th Mewtwo. The second one, I never had a chance, RNG wasn't letting it happen.

Anyway, I feel less than thrilled. Other people need one Mewtwo. Or two. Etc. And the person I've been playing with the most didn't get one, despite also soloing a Cloyster there on Sunday, in addition to raiding there more frequently than I do. His baby Valor account got a pass though, for whatever reason.


I hope they develop the EX pass system more. This one is a 35 minute drive, starts at 5:30 on a Friday. I'll go, but I'm lucky, I work for myself and have already decided I'm gonna go early and hit stops in the park to avoid traffic. Not everyone has that choice, or can afford to blow half a tank of gas on Mewtwo.

It would be nice if we could select a radius around our home zip code and time frames for EX passes. Obviously, you could just select "all, any time, any where" so as not to screw anyone. out of a pass.

In the main games there's unique identifying information that determines if Wurmple will become Silcoon and Beautifly or Cascoon and Dustox that makes it essentially random, I'd imagine this game follows suit.

Does anyone happen to have a link to that article that was hypothetically talking about which legendaries to spend rare candies on? Or an updated one now that they've all been released? I have 190 candies cluttering up my space and it's looking like I'm goddamn never getting a mewtwo(I'd save the majority obviously just in case but freeing up 50~ would be nice)

I caught a 2735 Ho-oh today when the seattle weather happened to shift to sunny . It's 84.4, am I right in thinking(unless I catch a higher iv one on a sunny day before it's gone) that I should take the hit on iv and power that one up? It seems like the returns given the rarity of rare candies vs it not being 90+% makes it worth it
