The Next 100 Monsters That Might Come To Pokémon Go

What comes next? This is the question Pokémon Go players want answered most, and Niantic has not been upfront with any concrete information following the game's launch earlier this month. We know that future updates bring the promise of trading, improved PokéStops and gyms, leaderboards, and potentially raids, but will there be new Pokémon to catch as well? In an interview with Forbes, Niantic's CEO John Hanke says new Pokémon will be introduced into the game "around special events at certain times in certain parts of the world," but we don't know if the company plans on following Pokémon's timeline for the roll-out of new critters.

For those of you that don't know, all of the monsters in Pokémon Go are from Pokémon Red and Blue, the original two Pokémon games that launched in 1998. The next games in the series, Pokémon Silver and Gold introduced 100 new creatures to catch, putting the total number of Pokémon in the game at 251. People assume (and hope) Niantic will follow the same timeline as the original games, but there's also a chance that the next batch of Pokémon may instead come from the forthcoming Pokémon Sun and Moon games for Nintendo 3DS (launching November 18). If this is the route Niantic takes, all bets are off for future updates.

If they do adhere to the established release schedule, Pokémon Silver and Gold's creatures could be mined for more than just 100 new creatures to catch. This sequel added Pokémon genders and breeding. The baby Pokémon inherit the traits of their parents and grow at a daycare. Gold and Silver also debuted a feature that would likely turn Pokémon Go into an even bigger sensation: Shiny Pokémon. If you thought hunting down rare Pokémon was fun now, picture what would happen if an even rarer Pokémon showed up. Shiny Pokémon are basically palette-swaps with new colors that are extremely rare. Gold and Silver also introduce pre-evolutions for Pokémon that didn't have three forms in the previous game, such as Pikachu who starts out as the adorable Pichu. And yes, there are also third evolutions for critters like Zubat that didn't have them in Red and Blue.
