The Generation 2 update for Pokémon Go is now live and trainers can begin to catch and stock up on Pokémon candy to get every new ‘Mon from the Johto Region.

And just like the first batch of Pokémon, some of the Gen 2 ‘Mon will be able to evolve to give trainers a quick way to fill up their PokeDexes because not all of these new Pokémon will be easily accessible.

In Generation 2, new evolutionary items were introduced and Pokémon Go will also be implementing those items into how Pokémon evolve in the Gen 2 update.

So here’s a list of all the new Pokémon from Generation 2 and how to evolve them in Pokémon Go.

Note: this list is being compiled and updated.

BABY POKEMON

Generation 2, technically, already came to Pokémon Go in 2016 with the introduction of Baby Pokémon.
