Everything you need to know about the 7 newest Pokémon in ‘Pokémon Go’


Cartoon Network

It’s been nearly a week since new creatures were finally made available in “Pokémon Go.”

Togepi, Pichu, and other “baby” Pokémon from the game’s second generation of creatures are now available — but only by hatching eggs.

If you’re unfamiliar with “Pokémon Go,” you collect eggs by visiting Pokéstops, which are landmarks for physical locations in the real world that you can spin every five minutes to get more items. Players can hold up to nine eggs at once, and hatch those eggs by putting them in incubators, and walking around for a specified distance (2km, 5km, or 10km) until the egg hatches.

Pokémon Go creator Niantic Labs has teased that more creatures are coming to the game soon, and players have yet to see the powerful “Legendaries” like Mewtwo that were shown when the game was first announced.

We’ve gathered everything you need to know about the seven newest Pokémon in Pokémon Go, including their descriptions from the official Pokédex and information provided by members of The Silph Road on Reddit:
