Could this be the big Gen 2 update we’ve been waiting for?

Niantic has officially announced that new Pokemon will be making their way to mobile AR title Pokemon Go.

While no specific details have been released about the number of new Pokemon that will be entering the game, the announcement follows the discovery of 100 new Pokemon by dataminders. According to the announcement, more news will be revealed on December 12.

The post also states that December will include “a few new experiences and in-game events,” along with announcing a partnership with Sprint.

“As part of this collaboration, Sprint, Boost Mobile and Sprint at Radioshack stores will become PokeStops and Gyms, giving you even more places to stock up on Poke Balls and Razz Berries and to battle your friends,” the post reads. “Sprint locations will also feature in-store charging stations to keep your Pokemon GO sessions going even longer.”

The announcement comes on the heels of yesterday’s leak, which pointed to a partnership with Starbucks. In that leak, pages that appear to have come from an employee website also stated that “the world of Pokemon Go is about to expand with new Pokemon.”
