Fly Added to Pokémon GO’s Game Master File

Fly, a Flying type move, has been added to Pokémon GO’s GAME MASTER file, indicating that it will become available in the near future. Fly is a highly coveted move from the Main Series Games, and it has a solid potential to shake up the meta game.

Unfortunately, at this moment, we do not know which Pokémon will have access to Fly, but we’re fairly certain that the upcoming Flying Pikachu will be one of those.
