Pokemon Go is still going strong, and the newest Pokemon Go update added a ton of features, items, and new Pokemon for trainers to discover.
Three new Lure Modules have been added to the game. Each costs 200 Poké Coins to purchase and lures in specific Pokemon types. The Glacial Lure Module attracts Water and Ice-type Pokemon. The Mossy Lure Module attracts Bug, Grass, and Poison-type Pokemon. Finally, the Magnetic Lure Module attracts Electric, Steel, and Rock-type Pokemon.
Not only do these lures attract Pokemon, but can also be used to evolve Eevee into Leafeon and Glaceon. The Magnetic Lure can also be used to evolve Magneton into Magnezone and Nosepass into Probopass. Players must be in range of a PokeStop to get these evolutions. The player can also choose to refuse an evolution if it is triggered in this Pokemon Go update.
This update also brings with it a new move: Earth Power. It is a powerful ground-type move that can lower an opponent’s defense. New Ground-type Pokemon from the Sinnoh region will have the move, as well as several Pokemon from earlier regions.
Finally, the press release says New Pokemon from Sinnoh are coming to the game. We don’t yet know the full list of Pokemon, but Niantic promises “Cherubi, Gible, Hippopotas, and others.”
We will keep you updated on any new Pokemon Go update as it is released.
