Pokemon Go Gets Datamined Again, Has Shinies and Sponsored Items

Pokemon Go – the highly popular, augmented reality monster catching game – has had its latest patch datamined by industrious fans. The major discovery? The sound files for Pokemon Gold and Silver’s 100 new monsters has been found.

While this news isn’t concrete proof that we’ll see the new critters in the next scheduled update, developer Niantic did hint at an announcement on December 12.

Other new features have been uncovered too, including:

  • Pokemon Genders. No new UI treatment will display this information, so creatures may already have one assigned.
  • Shiny Pokemon. For those unfamiliar, these are rare, re-coloured versions of the base creatures.
  • Avatar customisation. New hair and outfits.
  • New buddy position. It’s referenced to as “BABY,” which could mean that you hold the Pokemon while posing.
  • Sponsorship placeholders. Items tagged “GRILL” and “SMOKER” have been discovered.
  • Pokemon costumes. The first type discovered is tagged “HOLIDAY.”

So there you have it. Any of this potential new content have you excited? Let us know in the comments below!

SInce the above was announced, they also discovered that the audio for all gen 2 pokemon are in the latest APK. Gen 2 is nearly complete, it's just a matter of when they turn it on. (though might still be waiting for movesets unless they are serverside or something)

Pokémon Go will be adding new monsters next week, on December 12, coinciding with the launch of its first two US partnerships, the official Pokémon Company announced this week.

“More Pokémon are coming to #PokemonGO,” the company tweeted on Wednesday. “Stay tuned for details on 12/12, Trainers!”

It’s unclear if players outside the US will also be able to catch the new Pokémon, which originally debuted in the Gold and Silver games back in 2000.
