Pokemon GO Gen 4 Pokemon, Sinnoh region

A horde of brand new Sinnoh Region/Gen 4 Pokemon are now available to find worldwide in Pokemon GO, including the likes of Bidoof, Turtwig, Lucario, Infernape, and more.

In addition to this, there have been a number of changes to the meta. We've listed all of these gen 4 updates below:

  • CP values will be adjusted
  • HP values will be changed to close the gap between high HP pokemon and low HP pokemon
  • Pokemon defense and stamina values will be rebalanced, with the hope to allow highly defensive pokemon to be valuable in battle by outlasting opponents rather than simply running out the clock.
  • Defense values have been lowered to help level the playing field between high defense and low defense pokemon.
  • AR+ on Android devices has been added

New Raid Bosses have also been added to the game including Bidoof, Shinx and Buneary, and more.
