Trainers, it seems like Niantic and Pokemon Go launched the new XXS and XXL size feature in the game.
Niantic and Pokemon Go announced the new Mythical Wishes Season in the game and along with their announcement they revealed that XXS and XXL Pokemon are coming soon. It seems that soon is now, and some players are reporting that the new XXS and XXL feature is live in Pokemon Go. Alongside the new feature, there are new badges for XXS and XXL Pokemon. It requires you to catch specific numbers of XXS and XXL Pokemon to earn these medals.
There are three different sizes of Pokemon in Pokemon Go now, XXS, Normal, and XXL. XXS and XXL Pokemon are elusive; only a few will appear in XXS and XXL sizes. Also, the difference in size doesn’t make the Pokemon weaker or stronger.
Here is an overview of the new XXS and XXL size feature:
Time to break out the scales – Trainers have recently discovered XXS and XXL Pokemon!
Pokemon such as Poochyena, Mightyena, and Mawile have recently been observed in these sizes, and your Pokedex has been updated to start tracking the sizes of the Pokemon that you catch. We wonder if other Pokemon may have undiscovered sizes as well!
Keep a sharp eye out, Trainers. Will you try to find these elusive Pokemon and update the records in your Pokedex?
More sizes of Pokemon are appearing in Pokemon GO!
Trainers around the world have encountered Pokemon in previously undiscovered sizes – XXS and XXL. These sizes have been observed in the following Pokemon so far:
- If you’re lucky, you may encounter a Shiny one!
New encounter animations
When you encounter an XXS or XXL Pokemon, you may notice that things look a little different.
Visible size variation!
XXL and XXS Pokemon are visually larger or smaller than their standard sizes when you observe them in an encounter or adventure with them as your buddy.
Sizes will now be tracked in the Pokedex
Once you catch at least three of any one Pokemon, your Pokedex will begin to showcase your records for the largest, smallest, heaviest, and lightest specimens that you have caught
New celebratory message for breaking records!
Trainers who catch XXS or XXL Pokemon – or find smaller XS- or XL-sized Pokemon than they caught previously – can enjoy a new celebratory message when they break their record.
Trainers need to catch at least three of any particular Pokemon to set a record for that Pokemon.”
