By on

It’s officially here! The Generation 2 of Pokemon has finally arrived on Niantic’s hit mobile game Pokemon GO. There are 80 new creatures in the game and it will certainly make the game more interesting. So, without further ado, here are the top 10 Pokemon you should watch out for in the latest update.

  • Espeon and Umbreon

These two Pokemons will be taken as one for they are both evolution of the dog-Pokemon Eevee. In the first generation of creatures, there are already three transformations available–Jolteon, Vaporeon and Flareon. With the update, there will now be five all-in-all.

  • Steelix

Coming from Onix in Gen 1, the update will bring Steelix on the roster of creatures. It is a steel type Pokemon that you can acquire with 50 candies. For those who have yet to save candies, you better start now for at least one high IV Rating Onix.

  • Slowking

Known as the dumb Pokemon, Slowpoke can now evolve into Slowking through the latest Gen 2 Update of Pokemon GO. According to RankedBoost, it will cost trainers 50 candies alongside an item called King’s Rock. Once it evolves, it will become one of the strongest psychic Pokemon in the game.

  • Kingdra

If you want a Kingdra on your Pokedex, you should now start saving Horsea. It will cost 100 candies with the use of the item Dragon Scale. From a water-type Pokemon, Horsea will become a Dragon-type capable of skills like Dragonbreath.

  • Blissey

If Chansey is a rare Pokemon in Gen 1, what more its evolution. The Pokemon GO update will bring Blissey in the game. RankedBoost noted it will require 50 candies so you better save up Chanseys now.

  • Bellossom

Back in Gen 1, your Gloom has only one evolution, Vileplume. Now that Gen 2 has arrived, trainers will now have an additional transformation in the form of Bellossom. It is a pure grass type compared to a grass/poison Vileplume. It will require 100 candies and the use of the item Sun Stone.

  • Crobat

Its original form Zubat is one of the most common Pokemon in the game. But, with the second generation creatures coming in the game, it can now evolve into a Crobat. It will require 100 candies to transform and the evolution will certainly make it stronger.

  • Scizor

Scizor is considered one of the cool creatures in the game. Evolving from Scyther, trainers should have 50 candies to acquire the Pokemon.

  • Porygon2

Another rare Pokemon in the Gen 1 Pokemon is Porygon. Obviously, acquiring its evolution is as well a tough challenge for trainers. Porygon will need 50 candies to evolve directly into a Porygon2.

  • Politoed

Lastly, we have Politoed. Coming from Poliwag, gamers will need 100 candies to evolve it into a Poliwhirl then a Kings Rock into a Politoed. As you can see, acquiring the newly-added creature will not be that easy so be sure to be patient.
