Pokemon Go Unova Pokemon have been added to the game in an update today, bringing the first representatives from the game's fifth generation to mobile devices. It's been more than three years since the game first launched, and now Snivy, Oshawott, Lillipup, and more are making their way into the game!

Pokemon Go Unova Pokemon — Where to find them

You'll be able to find Unova Pokemon throughout the various aspects of the game. Whether you're catching them in the wild, hatching an egg, or battling in a raid, you now have the opportunity to catch more than a dozen new creatures!

Unova Pokemon Found in the Wild

The news post announcing this patch specifically states that you'll be able to find  Blitzle, Lillipup, Oshawoot, Patrat, Pidove, Purrloin, Snivy, and Tepig in the wild. It also adds 'and more" to this list; suffice it to say, they may be holding their cards close to the chest by including some Pokemon not specifically mentioned anywhere in this update.

Region Exclusives

Af has happened before, certain Pokemon can only be caught in certain places in the world. Here are the regional exclusives for this update:
  • Asia-Pacific: Pansage, the Grass Monkey Pokémon
  • Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and India: Pansear, the High Temp Pokémon
  • The Americas and Greenland: Panpour, the Spray Pokémon
  • Western hemisphere: Heatmor, the Anteater Pokémon
  • Eastern hemisphere: Durant, the Iron Ant Pokémon

Unova Pokemon Found in Eggs

Eggs are a time-honored way to collect creatures in this game, and the Pokemon Go Unova update doesn't disappoint. Here's a list of which Pokemon you can find in which eggs!

2km Eggs

  • Lillipup
  • Patrat
  • Pidove
  • Purrloin

5km Eggs

Unova Pokemon Found in Raids

Lillipup, Patrat, and Klink can be encountered in raids. It should be noted that Klink is specifically mentioned as one of the Pokemon Go Unova additions that you can't catch in the wild; if you're after this particular Pokemon, you'll only be able to get it in a raid or a 10km egg.

Finally, the Unova Stone is an item that allows for some new Unova evolutions. You can read the full announcement for additional details on this patch.

I've had a controller in my hand since I was 4 and I haven't stopped gaming since. CCGs, Tabletop Games, Pen & Paper RPGs - I've tried a whole bunch of stuff over the years and I'm always looking to try more!
