Niantic had released the highly popular Pokemon GO game at the beginning of July. Since then?players had?put all their efforts in finding legendary Pokemon but they were unable to find them because Niantic is yet to make?them available in the game. The company is expected to release a new update that is speculated to bring along second generation creatures of Pokemon GO. Rumors are rife that it will bring along the much awaited legendary Pokemon.

Recently, a player from Ohio had claimed to have found Articuno, the legendary Pokemon. Since legendary creatures were not supposed to appear in the first edition of the game, Niantic had responded by stating, ?We recently notice that a few Legendary Pokemon got into few accounts when they shouldn?t have. To preserve the game?s integrity and as a measure of fairness, we have rectified the situation and revoked the legendary Pokemon from the Trainers? accounts.?

Although Niantic did not intend to introduce Articuno?in the game so soon, it did make an appearance. Hence, it is being speculated that legendary Pokemon?may be introduced in the near future. Moreover, the references of legendaries like Zapdos, Moltres, Mew, MewTwo and Ditto are also reportedly present in the internal files of the game.

At the San Diego Comic-Con 2016 event that was held in the previous month, the company had said confirmed that current version is only 10 percent of the final product. Hence, the next major update for Pokemon GO will bring second generation creatures.


It is also expected to include new features like Pokemon trading. Speculations also indicate the update will bring along additional region specific Pokemon.
