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.
