Secret features of the new wave: Shiny Aron, rotating regionals, new sale, wild spawns and nest migration

Posted in


without much intro, here’s what has changed in the past 20 or so minutes in the world of Pokemon GO (and was not reported by Niantic).

Huge shout out to our newly formed research team on Discord, we nailed this release! If you want to be on the bleeding edge of Pokemon GO news, hop on here

Shiny Aron is available! Hype!

Yes, you read that right. Arguably the best / strongest Pokemon to come out in this wave is available as a Shiny variant. Don’t try reaching us any time soon, we’re hunting for a 100% or a shiny Aron…

Lunatone and Solrock are regional… kinda

According to an article on the official website, Lunatone and Solrock are a new for of rotational region exclusive:

Of particular note are the mighty Lunatone and Solrock, which can be found throughout the world, but never in the same region at the same time. 

Our guess is that they follow the night and day cycle, which perfectly fits the “mini riddle” in the quote above.

New wild spawns

These Pokemon are confirmed to spawn in the wild, kudos again to our research team:

  • Whismur
  • Loudred
  • Aron
  • Lairon
  • Numel

A forced nest migration took place

As the new Pokemon were rolling out, a forced migration took place changing all existing nests. We advise you head over to your local park and see what’s new.

Super incubator sale is live

A new sale is live, featuring Super incubators for 200 Poke Coin – not great, but not bad either. At least they’re available now.

We’re going to end this article with this creepy image of Lileep:
