Along with the launch of a special Santa hat clad Pikachu, Niantic has also rolled out a selection of generation 2 Pokémon in Pokémon Go, though the new Pocket Monsters have been confined to “baby” creatures that hatch from eggs, at least so far.
While it was initially believed that only Togepi and Pichu were added to the game, Pokémasters have uncovered a variety of other creatures that stem from eggs.
Currently, the confirmed new Pokémon are Pichu, Togepi, Igglybuff, Cleffa, Elekid, Magby and Smoochum. While some may feel not revealing all the new creatures is a frustrating move by Niantic, it actually also brings a new sense of discovery to the mobile title.
All of these Pokémon can only be caught through hatching eggs, which in some cases requires players to walk as far as real-world kilometres.
