Pokémon Go: Second generation Pokémon look set to appear this week

Leaked Starbucks documents suggest that Pokémon Go will receive second generation Pokémon as early as this week.

Documents, vouched for by anonymous Starbucks employees (via Reddit) state that the new Pokémon will appear in-game from 8 December (or closer to 9 December here in Australia.

“The world of Pokémon Go is about to expand with new Pokémon and a new Starbucks beverage!” the internal memo reads. Most US Starbucks stores across will become PokéStops or Gyms at the same time. The company will also offer a Pokémon Go-branded Frappuccino.

Datamining in November uncovered 100 Pokémon Gold and Silver characters alongside the already-released Ditto.

Developer Niantic has already entered into an agreement with McDonald’s in Japan, so one with Starbucks in the US doesn’t seem that… Farfetch’d.

We’ll keep you posted.
