Related Articles

Hello Trainers! Pokémon GO 0.245.0 is currently rolling out to a device near you and it brings with it all of Vivillon’s forms, Water Shuriken (Froakie CD?), new Pikachu costumes, and more!

Please read through all of this with a grain of salt – we often post data mining reports which end up taking months to release, and we don’t want our readers to be disappointed. Be smart, read this like speculation and be happy once it goes live.

💡 Disclaimer: You know the drill by now, everything in this article is data mined, and therefore subject to change or not even being released at all. All of this information is publicly provided by the PokéMiners and includes some of my commentaries.

0.245.0 Assets

All of the new assets that come with this update, including an option to use the “Remember last-used Poké ball” bug, a Vivillon map that is oddly marked “Delete me”, a 3D asset for Water Shuriken, and more 

New Moves

.V0372_MOVE_METEOR_BEAM 
.V0373_MOVE_WATER_SHURIKEN_FAST

In the main series games, Meteor beam is a 2-turn damage-dealing move, on the first turn it raises the user’s special attack then deals damage on the 2nd turn. This is likely an attack-boosting PvP move.

In the main series games, Water Shuriken is a damage-dealing move and is the signature move of Accelgor. Interestingly, the only other Pokémon that can learn Water Shuriken is Greninja. Froakie Community Day confirmed?! … ok, maybe not.
