A lot has changed since the whole world was swept away in a wave of Pokémon hysteria. That summer of 2016 saw many fall back in love with the game that consumed their childhood, but slowly users drifted away like the hardened, cynical adults we’ve become.
Since then, Niantic and Nintendo have been working hard to implement new features the fans are craving. Raid battles, rare Pokémon, plus weekly quests to find a legendary creature - filling your Pokédex has never been more fun. There’s even been more in-depth research quests to catch mythicals like Mew and Celebi.

With new legendaries, Eeveelutions, meta-breakers and some iconic characters, let's take a look at the seven Sinnoh newbies you won't want to miss.
