Pokémon Go's Gen 3 offers over 130 new Pokémon, the biggest addition of new creatures to the game since it's summer 2016 debut - even more than the 80 or so added in Gen 2.

These Gen 3 Pokémon are from the franchise's third generation of games - Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald, the vast majority of which were original creatures, alongside a couple of baby Pokémon and brand new Legendary creatures.

Not all have arrived at once, however, and though Niantic has released five waves of Gen 3 releases, there are still more yet to come.

On this page:

Which Pokémon from Gen 3 are in the game so far

At the end of this article is a complete list (with images and Types) of the 135 Pokémon from the Hoenn region in the main games, including their evolution methods.

As with Gen 2, they didn't arrive at once, with a first wave of Ghost Types during Halloween, another 50 arriving in early December and another 20 as part of a Christmas event.

A fourth wave was then added in January 2018, and the fifth and final wave in February 2018.

Pokémon Go Gen 3 Pokémon list

As with the first two generations, most evolutions should require Candy, though we suspect new Special Items matching those used in the main game, or even additional new mechanics for others. We'll know more when they release.
