Trainers! Get ready to harness the power of special new lures, and meet more Pokémon! Exciting news came from Niantic today, as they have officially announced that more Pokémon from the Sinnoh Region will be making their way into Pokémon GO. But that’s not all, also announced is the addition of a new move, Earth Power! Finally, the previously leaked New Lures have now been officially confirmed. Glacial Lure Modules, Mossy Lure Modules, and Magnetic Lure Modules will be coming soon to the in-game shop!


New Sinnoh Pokémon

So far, only Cherubi, Gible, and Hippopotas have been officially confirmed, but more are expected, found both in the wild and hatched from eggs. Stay tuned as we will keep this list updated as more sightings are reported.

Per the Official Announcement by Niantic:

We’re excited to announce that more Pokémon originally discovered in the Sinnoh region are coming to Pokémon GO! From seas and beaches to mountains and beyond, be on the lookout for Cherubi, Gible, Hippopotas, and others. We hope you’ll enjoy the fun and surprises as you encounter these Pokémon in the wild and hatch them from Eggs.


Earth Power

Another new move is coming to Pokémon GO in the form of the powerful Ground-type move—Earth Power!

  • Earth Power is a powerful Ground-type Charged Attack that could lower your opponent’s defense in Trainer Battles.
  • Certain Pokémon recently arrived from the Sinnoh region will know Earth Power.
  • Other Pokémon that could know Earth Power include Nidoqueen, Nidoking, Aerodactyl, Camerupt, and Claydol.

New Lures Modules

Three new Lure Modules have now been officially announced. Glacial Lure Modules, Mossy Lure Modules, and Magnetic Lure Modules can be obtained in the in-game shop and will be available later this season as rewards for completing new Special Research tasks. These New Lures will also finally give us a way to evolve Glaceon, Leafeon, Magnezone, and Probopass.

Per the Official Announcement by Niantic:

Thanks to your dedication in helping Professor Willow with his research, he has made some amazing improvements to our favorite module—the Lure Module. Inspired by research collected from around the world, three upgraded Lure Modules have been developed. These modules attract Pokémon in the surrounding area while creating a temporary special habitat. Soon you’ll be able to harness the power of Glacial Lure Modules, Mossy Lure Modules, and Magnetic Lure Modules. These lures might even have the potential to cause Evolution in certain Pokémon!

  • When Trainers are within range of a PokéStop with an active lure of the appropriate type, and they can successfully spin its Photo Disc, Evolution of Magneton and Nosepass will be enabled, as well as certain Evolutions of Eevee.
  • You can choose whether or not to proceed with these special Evolutions on the Pokémon’s detail screen.
