Pokemon Go Adds Espurr And Other Gen 6 Pokemon This Week

Pokemon Go‘s big Go Beyond update is now live, which means a new generation of Pokemon are soon making their debut in the mobile game. Niantic is introducing the first wave of Gen 6 Pokemon to Go this week as part of the new Kalos Celebration event, which kicks off tomorrow, December 2, at 8 AM local time.

Throughout the week-long event, a handful of Pokemon originally from the Kalos region will appear in the wild and hatch from eggs, including the Gen 6 starters Chespin, Fennekin, and Froakie. On top of that, players will be able to encounter some Kalos Pokemon in Raids. Among them will be the Psychic type Espurr, which will be appearing throughout the event in one-star Raids.

In addition to increased Pokemon spawns, there will be event-exclusive Field Research and Timed Research tasks to complete during the event. The Kalos Celebration runs until 10 PM local time on December 8. You can read more about the event on the official Pokemon Go website.

Those aren’t the only new Pokemon debuting in Go this week. Mega Abomasnow is also arriving as a new Mega Raid boss starting December 1, replacing Mega Blastoise. If you manage to defeat Mega Abomasnow in Raids, you’ll earn some Abomasnow Mega Energy, which you’ll be able to use to Mega-Evolve your own Abomasnow once you’ve collected enough.

Niantic has a few other December events lined up for the game as well, including a two-day Community Day weekend celebration starring all the previous featured Pokemon from this year, as well as new Spotlight Hour Pokemon and more. The Legendary Kyurem is also returning to five-star Raids all December long.
