Trainers, it seems like some Pokemon now have new animation when you first encounter them.
Niantic and Pokemon Go changed the encounter animation on certain Pokemon when you first encounter them, or by making them your Buddy and doing the “Play with Buddy” animation.
Not all Pokemon have a new animation, and thanks to DankieKang we now have the list of Pokemon with new animations.
Pokemon with new Animations
- All Kanto Pokemon
- All Galar/Alolan forms of Kanto Pokemon (except G. Weezing)
- All megas except Beedrill, Ampharos, Houndoom, Manectric, Lopunny, and Abomasnow
- Zigzagoon (regular and Galarian)
Some buddy animations have returned/been added! Here are some of my favorites! You can see these by encountering specific Pokémon, or by making them your buddy and doing the “Play with Buddy” animation! #Pokemon #PokemonGO #GOsnapshot pic.twitter.com/DXTRCSMoVm
