Eyes here trainers! Druddigon is officially making its debut in Pokémon GO. The Cave Pokémon joins the game courtesy of the Dragonspiral Descent, which starts today until December 12.

The thing is, Professor Willow believes that Druddigon may just be the first of many that may appear. That’s because many Pokémon that also call Dragonspiral Tower their home. There could be an unprecedented surge of Fire-, Electric-, and Ice-type Pokémon appearing, which could be connected to Dragon-type Legendary Pokémon of Unova.
