‘Pokemon Go’: Which Generation 1 Pokemon Evolve Into Generation 2 Pokemon?


‘Pokemon Go’ is available for iOS and Android devices. (Niantic)

Millions of Pokemon Go trainers have been crossing their fingers today hoping that the second generation of Pokemon is about to launch. How should players prepare for this release?

Though we don’t know for sure that the second generation is coming today, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to save up some candies just in case. That’s because if you have the right Pokemon and the right number of candies, you’ll be able to immediately make use of the new evolutions. Yes, there are some brand new Pokemon that will be added to the game in the second generation, but some of your first generation Pokemon will also receive an additional evolution.

The following is a list of the Pokemon that currently exist in Pokemon Go that will receive a new evolution in the second generation:

  • Chansey: Now evolves into Blissey
  • Horsea: Now evolves into Kingdra
  • Onix: Now evolves into Steelix
  • Porygon: Now evolves into Porygon2
  • Scyther: Now evolves into Scizor
  • Zubat: Now evolves into Crobat

In addition, there are also some Pokemon that will receive what’s called a split evolution. This means that the Pokemon can evolve into one of several Pokemon depending on certain conditions. This already exists in Pokemon Go with Eevee, which can evolve into Vaporeon, Flareon, or Jolteon depending on what you name it.

It’s not yet clear how these new evolution branches will be handled and what conditions will need to be met, but that’s something players will likely figure out not long after the new Pokemon launch.

The new split evolutions are:

  • Eevee: Can now evolve into Espeon or Umbreon under certain conditions
  • Oddish: Can now evolve into Bellossom under certain conditions
  • Poliwag: Can now evolve into Politoed under certain conditions
  • Slowpoke: Can now evolve into Slowking under certain conditions

Nobody knows for sure that the second generation of Pokemon is being released this week. All we know is that on Monday, December 12th, Niantic will be making an announcement concerning the addition of new Pokemon. Most players are assuming that this has to do with the second generation, although it could just as easily be about the legendary birds instead. Regardless, Niantic has said the second generation will be released in Pokemon Go at some point, so it’s just a matter of if it will be this week or if we’ll have to wait until next year.
