here’s the complete overview of the new wave, bringing together information that was previously scattered around in Tweets and Discord messages:
Swablu is available as a shiny in the wild and it’s appearing everywhere. Unfortunately, Swablu and Altaria are not really useful in Pokemon GO and Swablu requires 400 Candy to evolve.
There is a plethora of new raid bosses that have been confirmed, mostly based around Water and Ice, as a perfect counter for the new Rayquaza Raid Boss:
- T1: Swablu, Snorunt,
- T2: Dewgong
- T3: Jynx, Azumarill, Piloswine
- T4: Feraligatr
- T5: Rayquaza
Volbeat, Illumise and Tropius seem like new regionals, but it’s too early to confirm. As of this writing, these are the initial sightings:
- Volbeat (Europe, Asia-Pacific)
- Illumise (Americas)
- Tropius (Africa)
Ditto has been confirmed to hide as Taillow. Eggs are still a mystery, but it’s likely that Bagon is in the 10K pool.
