Pokémon Go - new Gen 2 Pokémon from the Johto region in Gold and Silver and how to get them

A checklist of the 80+ creatures coming from Gold, Silver and Crystal as part of Pokémon Go's big new February update.

Pokémon Go's new Gen 2 Pokémon update adds over 80 new Pokémon, the biggest addition of new creatures to the game since it's summer 2016 debut.

The 80 new Pokémon are from the franchise's second generation of games - Pokémon Gold, Silver and Crystal - which originally introduced 100 new creatures from the new Johto region, including some evolutions and baby Pokémon from the original 251 - some of which we've already encountered as part of the December Baby Pokémon update.

In light of the new update - which also features new Pinap and Nanab Berries, evolution items, such as the Metal Coat, Sun Stone, Dragon Scale, Up-Grade and King's Rock, and new Trainer customisation - here is a list of all Gen 2 Johto Pokémon, and how we expect to catch and evolve them.

What we know about the Pokémon Go Gen 2 Pokémon from the Johto region

Below is a complete list of the 100 Pokémon from the Johto region in the main games, including their evolution methods.

Over 80 of these have been added as part of the February update. Why only over 80 out of 100? Between pre-existing Baby Pokémon added before Christmas (8) and the assumption Legendary Pokémon won't be available (8), that leaves us 86 - in other words, the mass majority, listed below.

Several have been held back from release - think Ditto from the first generation, or Legendaries which from either generation have yet to be seen - while two new creatures have been added to the roster of region exclusives.

Most evolutions require standard level-based evolutions requiring Candy, while the introduction of new Special Items match those we saw in the main games - all are detailed below.
