After numerous teases, the first Gen 5 Pokemon are finally making their debut in Pokemon Go today as part of the game’s third and final set of Ultra Bonuses. Players around the world will soon be able to encounter a variety of monsters originally from Pokemon Black and White, with even more to come over the next few months.
As teased, the three Unova starters–Snivy, Tepig, and Oshawott–will be among the new Pokemon you can find, and they’ll be available both in the wild and from certain eggs. They certainly aren’t the only Gen 5 monsters coming to the game, however. Pidove, Lillipup, Patrat, and more will also appear in the wild, while Litwick, Ferroseed, Deino, and others can hatch from 10 km eggs.
Depending on where you live, you’ll also be able to encounter a handful of new region-exclusive Pokemon. Durant and Heatmor will only appear in the Eastern and Western hemispheres, respectively, while the three elemental monkeys Pansage, Pansear, and Panpour will each be exclusive to certain parts of the world.
Finally, to coincide with the Gen 5, Niantic is introducing a new evolutionary item to the game called the Unova Stone. Much like the Sinnoh Stone, this is required to evolve certain Gen 5 Pokemon, such Lampent, and it can be obtained through Research Breakthroughs.
Below, we’ve rounded up all the Gen 5 Pokemon confirmed for Pokemon Go so far, along with all the known ways you can obtain them. We’ll continue to update this list as more Gen 5 Pokemon are introduced to the game, so be sure to check back often if you’re looking to add a particular Unova Pokemon to your collection.
