Niantic announced this morning that details about new Pokémon for Pokémon Go are coming next week, as well as a partnership with Sprint that creates more PokéStops for everyone.

Details about new Pokémon will release on Monday, December 12. Exactly when and how many Pokémon will be added is unclear. If it's generation 2 in full, it could add 100 new Pokémon to the game. Niantic also says it has more events planned for before the end of the year, as well.

Niantic also announced a partnership with Sprint which will turn 10,500 Sprint, Boost Mobile ,and Sprint at Radioshack stores into PokéStops and Gyms. Those stores will also feature charging stations with Pokémon Go in mind.

Our Take
I was worried Niantic's plans with Sprint would create exclusive content for the game for Sprint customers. I'm glad to hear that's not the case. I am still playing the game regularly so I am excited for new new Pokémon! Even though Game Informer is based in Minnesota. And It's December. Hopefully it's Gen 2 in its entirety.
