After teasing the trainers last weekend, Niantic announced the Mysterious Raid Egg and that’s Espurr! You can now challenge Espurr, the Restraining Pokémon, in One Star Raids. This Psychic-type Pokémon was originally encountered in the Kalos region of Generation VI. With 50 candies, Espurr can evolve into the powerful Psychic-type Pokémon, Meowstic. Meowstic is a Pokémon with unique gender variance, both in appearance and movement. Female Meowstic in Pokémon Go has access to the powerful Ghost-type move, Shadow Ball, which makes her particularly promising.
While this is the first Generation VI Pokémon available in Pokémon Go, other Generation VI Pokémon, including starters, will make their Pokémon Go debut in the coming days. The starters, Chespin, Fennekin, and Froakie, along with Litleo, Pyroar, Fletchling, Flechinder, Talonflame, and Klefki will be the first batch of Generation VI Pokémon coming soon to Pokémon Go.
