Trainers, Niantic and Pokemon Go have confirmed that Mega Evolutions are coming to the game this year, and that means that the Pokemon from Kalos region, or Gen 6, will make their debut simultaneously with the Mega Evolutions and the last Eeveelution, Sylveon.
The 6th Gen will bring 72 new Pokemon species from the Kalos region, one evolution from a Pokemon featured in a previous generation Eevee-Sylveon, Mega Evolutions, and new moves. What is quite interesting is that in the main series, they introduced a new villainous team, Team Flare.
Team Flare has only bad intentions – to make money and create a “beautiful and better” world for themselves and eliminate all who don’t meet their standards.
This doesn’t confirm that we’re going to get a new set of villains, like previously Team GO Rocket, but this would definitely make the game more fun. That means we could get Team Flare Field Research tasks, face their Leader Lysandre in a battle, and show them who’s the best Pokemon Go Trainer.
Sylveon is the only one evolution from a Pokemon featured in previous generations, Gen 1 Eevee, and is the last Eeveelution.
The Mega Evolutions will definitely change the pace of the game, and we’re curious to find out how they will implement this new feature. They didn’t share any details about the Mega Evolution feature, nor which Pokemon will be released, but we expect to see all 46 species of Pokemon that are capable of Mega Evolution at some point.
As mentioned above, they did confirm Mega Evolution is coming later in 2020, and this feature was introduced in Gen 6. That being said, without any doubt Gen 6 Pokemon will make their debut alongside Mega Evolutions.
There is no word about the release date, so we just have to guess when they will make their debut in Pokemon Go.
Until this day, they introduced Pokemon from Gen 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 8 and we follow the pattern (excluding Gen 8), we could guess when they will most likely receive the Gen 6 Pokemon.
- Gen 2 – 2/17/2017
- Gen 3 – 10/20/2017
- Gen 4 – 10/16/2018
- Gen 5 – 9/16/2019
We expect them to release the first wave of Gen 6 Pokemon (probably the starters) sometime from September 2020 until October 2020, and then to release the rest as part of in-game events.
