Trainers,

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: SwabluSnorunt,
  • T2: Dewgong
  • T3: JynxAzumarillPiloswine
  • 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.
