New Unova Themed Loading Screen Discovered by Data Miners

Pokémon GO Loading Screen 2020

Pokémon GO data miners have discovered a new loading screen (pictured above), hidden among the files Pokémon GO downloads on launch. As with all data mined information, this information is also speculative and not confirmed by Niantic!

The new loading screen features several unreleased Pokémon, which goes hand in hand with Niantic’s recent announcement that more Unova Pokémon are coming in 2020:

  • Scolipede
  • Axew
  • Sewaddle

The loading screen features other, already released, Pokémon:

  • Gible
  • Nidorina
  • Tyranitar
  • Mightyena
  • Quilava
  • Marill
  • Pikachu

Judging by the snowy setting, it seems like this is a winter themed wallpaper, likely coming after New Years Eve if it turns out to be legitimate.

Curiously, both Scolipede and Sewaddle are Bug types. Axew doesn’t fit the Bug theme, but it did have an encounter with Scolipede in BW009 episode titled “The Bloom Is On Axew!” and it did encounter Sewaddle in Pinwheel Forest.
