As developer Niantic has been promising for months now, a new wave of Pokémon is upon us. According to the official Twitter and YouTube Channel, Togepi, Pichu, and other lovable pocket monsters from the Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver games can now be found all over the world, and more can be expected to join them soon. While the game’s community has diminished drastically from its huge summer popularity, the inclusion of new characters could easily increase the game’s staying power and even attract some new players. It certainly doesn’t hurt your fanbase to add free content!
For a limited time, players can also catch a holiday-themed Pikachu, appearing commonly throughout the game. Be quick, though, because you only have until December 29th to catch him.

If you’re one of the few people that haven’t tried Pokémon Go, or you’re one of the many people that have given it up, you can (re)download the free game from the iOS app store here.
