Now the developers behind Pokémon Go are teasing that a whole new generation of Pokémon could soon be coming to the mobile augmented reality game.
The new monsters were shown off in a promotional image shared through Niantic’s Twitter and Instagram account. The picture features Pokémon from generations one through four, as well as a few player avatars.
The company also showed off the three starter Pokémon from the Sinnoh Region, including the water-type Piplup, the grass-type Turtwig and the fire starter Chimchar. These three Pokémon made their debuts in the Nintendo DS games Pokémon Dimond and Pokémon Pearl back in 2007.

Niantic didn’t offer a timeline for when these new Pokémon will be added to the game, but since the image has been posted it seems like it will likely happen sooner rather than later. There is speculation that the new Pokémon could be released on July 14th or 15th since Pokémon Go Fest is scheduled to take place in Chicago during that weekend.
This news is exciting for me personally since Pokémon Dimond was the first Pokémon game I played to completion. There are a lot of cool Pokémon in this generation too, including the always cool Luxray and the evolved form of Roselia, Roserade.
Speaking of Roserade, trainers may want to start stocking up on some specific Candies because a lot of older Pokémon are likely to get new evolutions in Generation 4.
