Although there have been some challenges, Pokémon Go developers have tried to expand and patch up some of its gameplay holes at the same time. While rumors of Generation 4 Creatures release have been going around the Pokémon Go Community, Niantic has, finally, Released the long-awaited, much anticipated Gen 3 Pokémon.

Newly released Generation 3 Pokémon

A new batch of Generation 3 Pokémon has been introduced.

This seems to be the tail end of the Generation 3 release into Pokémon Go. Some Pokémon added to the game are available in the wild, while some are available by evolving. The ones available in the wild include Castform, Surskit, Marquerain, Swablu, Bagon, Shelgon, Tailow, Swellow, Volbeat, Illumise, Beldum, Metang Tropins Chimecho, Wingull, and Pelipper, while those only available by evolving include Altaria the evolved form of Swablu, Salamence which is Gen 3’s equivalent of Dragonite, and Metagross which is the equivalent of Gen 3’s Tyranitar.

The Flying Dragon Type Legendary Rayquaza is the biggest addition to the game and the fact that it is weak on ice makes it easier to catch. In addition, a shiny treatment was given to the latest Gen 3 release and three more new regional and exclusive creatures were released alongside.

Gen 3 Pokémon has been made easy to catch

Pokémon Go has made it easier for Players to hunt down Generation 3 Pokémon. This is a great chance for players to catch as many Generation 3 Pokémon from the Hoenn Region as they can in the wild. However, this will only last until February 13th. While fans are counting down to the upcoming Valentine’s Day event, Niantic has decided to make some days before the event very interesting.

Trainers, who remain active during this period, will get the most out of it. Some weeks ago, the Pokémon Go Developer, Niantic did something similar to this when they announced that all eggs hatched within that period will contain a Gen 3 Pokémon.
