Pokémon Go Gen 3: How to prepare right now!

Pokémon Go Gen 3 isn’t here yet, but it’s on its way — and here are the Pokémon, Candy, and information you need to prepare!

Pokémon Gen 2 launched in the early spring of 2017, some 8 months after the launch of Gen 1. If Pokémon Go sticks to the same pattern, that would put Gen 3 at winter 2017 and Gen 4 at summer or fall 2018. In other words, still a ways off. But time is a funny thing — it moves fast. Right now, for example, Pokémon Go is already adding the names for Gen 3 in an app update. Here’s what you need to know!

Update October 2, 2017: The Pokémon Company potentially teases new Gen 3 Pokémon for Halloween.

From TPC:

Ghostly Goodies in Pokémon GO

The Halloween season is a special time in Pokémon GO. Plenty of good stuff is coming to the game later this October, and we can’t wait to get out and about to see what sort of excitement we can scare up while catching new Pokémon to fill out our Pokédex.

Stay tuned for more details about Pokémon GO’s Halloween event coming soon!

Last year the Halloween event was announced on October 24 and ran from October 26 to November 1. And, in addition to an increased encounter rate for spooky spawns, it offered double candy. This will be the first time Pokémon Go has had a chance to repeat an event since it launched in the summer of 2016, so it’ll be interesting to see how it evolves on the original theme, if at all.

The language The Pokémon Company used has caused some to speculate (hope) that it means all-new Gen 3 Ghost and Dark-types will be released for Halloween. Others that it simply means new-for-you Gen 1 and Gen 2 Ghost and Dark-types if you haven’t caught them already.

The former is much more exciting than the latter, of course. (And few people will have gone this long without catching the existing Ghost- and Dark-types.

If it is Gen 3, then these are the new Ghost-types we could see:

  • 292: Shedinja (421)
  • 302: Sableye (1305)
  • 353: Shuppet (872)
  • 354: Banette Banette (2073)
  • 355: Duskull Duskull (523)
  • 356: Dusclops Dusclops (1335)

And the potential new Dark-types:

  • 261: Poochyena (564)
  • 262: Mightyena (1783)
  • 274: Nuzleaf (1117)
  • 275: Shiftry (2186)
  • 302: Sableye (1305)
  • 318: Carvanha (874)
  • 319: Sharpedo (1986)
  • 332: Cacturne (2092)
  • 342: Crawdaunt (2317)
  • 359: Absol (2280)

Fingers (and claws) crossed.

Updated August 21, 2017: Pokémon Go has added the names for the Gen 3 Pokémon in the game’s master file.

The names for all 135 new Pokémon in Gen 3 have been added to the GAME_MASTER file in Pokémon Go.

From The Sliph Road:

It’s finally time to get hyped, travelers!

135 new species (all Gen III species) have now appeared in the APK metadata. With that also comes 73 new candy ‘families’ from Treecko to Deoxys. We anticipate it will be a little while yet before these species begin appearing. The following do not appear yet in the APK, and will be needed before Gen III goes live:

  • Sound files for each species (their battle ‘cries’)
  • Any additional moves that may be added for the Gen III species’ use

No new moves were added to the APK just yet.

It could still be a matter of months, but it’s one more step towards Gen 3!

Are there any new evolutions for existing Pokémon in Gen 3?

Sadly, no. Gen 3 is pretty much its own thing. Gen 4, though will introduce several new evolutions for Gen 1 and Gen 2 Pokémon alike, so it’s worth catching and saving high stat (IV) versions of each, and accumulating candy, starting now.

Here’s the list of Gen 1 and Gen 2 Pokémon that evolve in Gen 4:

  • Magnemite to evolve Magneton into Magnazone.
  • Lickitung to evolve into Lickilicky.
  • Rhynhorn to evolve into Rhyperior.
  • Tangela to evolve into Tangrowth.
  • Elekid to evolve Electabuzz into Electivire.
  • Magby to evolve Magmar into Magmortar.
  • Eevee to evolve into Leafeon and Glaceon (Split).
  • Porygon to evolve Porygon2 into Porygon-Z.
  • Aipom to evolve into Ambipom.
  • Yanma to evolve into Yanmega.
  • Murkrow to evolve into Honchkrow.
  • Misdreavus to evolve into Mismagius.
  • Gligar to evolve into Gliscor.
  • Sneasel to evolve into Weavile.
  • Swinub to evolve Piloswine into Mamoswine.
  • Togetic to evolve into Togekiss

What about babies? Any new Pokémon babies in Gen 3?
