As if this week hadn’t been exciting enough when it comes to leaks and data mines, the PokéMiners shared an update yesterday revealing that several new Gen 6 and 7 3D models were added in Pokémon GO update 0.205.0.
Our seasoned readers already know this, but it doesn’t hurt to say it one more time: information extracted from data is subject to change and is not endorsed by Niantic. We won’t tell you to get your hopes up, as things can change at any moment. Still, this is what PokéMiners have discovered.
New 3D models of the seventh generation in Pokémon GO
11 new Generation 7 Pokémon models found: Rowlett, Cutiefly, Toucannon, Sandygast, Palossand, Cosmog, Cosmoem, Solgaleo, Lunala, Necrozma, and Marshadow.
All of these models are Pokémon first discovered in the Pokémon Sun and Moon games, with Solgaleo and Lunala being the legendaries of the box. Necrozma is the mysterious third Legendary and Marshadow is a new Mythical Pokémon added in Sun & Moon. Rowlett is one of the Generation 7 starter Pokémon.
Our Pokémon GO database page for Generation 7 Pokémon already has preliminary stats for these Pokémon, so check it out with a grain of salt.
No 2D assets have been discovered, so this is likely Niantic’s way of putting assets into the game for an easier launch in the future. Near or distant future? We have no idea.
3D models of the new generation 6
In addition to the Generation 7 models, a handful of Generation 6 models were also added: Flabebe, Floette, 8 different Furfrou models, Clauncher, Pumpkaboo, Gourgeist, Zygarde, and Volcanion.
These Pokémon are some (if not all) of the missing Generation 6 models.
New Mega Pokémon Assets
Last but not least, 15 new Mega Pokémon models have been added, probably future-proofing the game for an easier launch:
- Mega Alakazam
- Mega Scizor
- Mega Heracross
- Mega Tyranitar
- Mega Aggron
- Mega swampert
- Mega Gardevoir
- Mega Medicham
- Mega Altana
- Mega Absol
- Mega Latias
- Mega Latios
- Mega Garchomp
- Mega lucario
- Mega audino
We’re still missing a few, but it sure looks like more Megas will come in the future. There are bright shapes too, but don’t get too excited about them; As we already know, the presence of an asset does not mean anything about its launch.
Post-New Gen 7, Gen 6, and Mega Pokémon 3D models detected in Pokémon GO assets first appeared in Pokémon GO Hub.
