Pokémon Go has just dropped the fourth generation of Pokémon. If you’re reading this and you’re a Pokémon Go aficionado… why aren’t you out there catching Pokémon already?

Included in this first drop are Gen 4 starters Turtwig, Chimchar and Piplup, plus common species such as Bidoof and Starly.

At present, Pokémon from previous generations with new Gen 4 evolutions (such as Magmar, Electabuzz and Tangela) can not be evolved.

As expected, Gen 4 Pokémon will launch in Pokémon Go in waves, with later additions to appear in eggs, in the wild and also in raids.

Current reports list the available Gen 4 Pokémon as:

  • Turtwig, Grotle, Torterra
  • Chimchar, Monferno, Infernape
  • Piplup, Prinplup, Empoleon
  • Starly, Staravia, Stararaptor
  • Bidoof, Bibarel
  • Kricketot, Kricketune
  • Buneary, Lopunny
  • Shinx, Luxio, Luxray (Shinx available in 10km eggs, Tier 1 raids)
  • Riolu, Lucario (Riolu in 10km eggs)
  • Chatot (regional to areas in southern hemisphere)
  • Carnivine (regional to areas in south-east US)
  • Pachirisu (regional to areas in Arctic regions)
