Pokemon Go Gen 5 List: Gen 5 Release Date, Unova Region Detailed

Here are all of the Pokemon that will make their way to Pokemon Go as part of the Gen 5 update.

Every now and then, Niantic adds a whole new set of Pokemon into Pokemon Go. This allows trainers to get back out into the world, in the hopes of filling up their Pokedex with new creatures. Currently, we’re awaiting the arrival of Gen 5 in Pokemon Go, and have just seen official confirmation from Niantic as to when Gen 5 will drop. Here's what you need to know.

When Will Pokemon Go Gen 5 Release?

The big question on everyone’s mind right now in Pokemon Go is when Gen 5 will release. Well, Niantic just revealed that the very first Gen 5 Pokemon will arrive in Pokemon Go on September 16. The three Pokemon that will arrive first are Klink, Lillipup and Patrat. There will also be shiny versions of the three, and they will appear in Raids and in the wild.

What Else Do You Need to Know About Pokemon Go Gen 5

Gen 5 of Pokemon is distinctly different to that of Gen 4. For a start, there are 40 more Pokemon in the roster, and many of them require special situations in order to evolve. Because of this, Gen 5 in Pokemon Go is likely to introduce new mechanics and items. There are no baby Pokemon this time around though, and no new evolutions for previous Pokemon. It’s also worth noting that many Legendary Pokemon have alternate forms, like Tornadus for example.
