Fans of Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl, now is your time to shine.
The awaited launch of Sinnoh-region Pokemon has been expected for a little while now, and overnight Niantic announced that the gen 4 critters would finally be making their entrance in the AR game.
If you're struggling to remember what Pokemon that actually means, here's the cliff's notes: two new Eevee evolutions (hello Leafeon), the incredibly cool Luxray, and the Pokemon that's based off the Egyptian god of death, Lucario.
Niantic also announced some quality-of-life changes in a blog post, including more variety of Pokemon appearing in a given area and more varied species in particular spaces like nature reserves and parks.
Most Pokemon's defence values have been nerfed as well, helping lower "the gap between Pokemon with the highest defensive stats and other Pokemon". Stamina values have been adjusted too, allowing players to try and defeat high-defence Pokemon by outlasting them in battle.
