Data miners, start hunting. Pokémon Go is apparently hiding a big secret.
The news comes by way of Niantic CEO John Hanke, who confirmed that although the game “always” has secrets due to Niantic adding in new features, there’s a big one out there right now that nobody has found.
“There’s one out there right now,” he told GamesRadar. “And we’ll see how that plays out over the course of the next few weeks.”
When asked for more details, Hanke just said that he’s “not giving [us] any clues.”
So far, data miners have recently found hints pointing towards Ditto?a shapeshifting Pokémon that hasn’t yet been caught by anyone in-game?and signs that Niantic is preparing to release a whole new set of generation 2 Pokémon.
While fans have been expecting these new Pokémon to be unveiled since Pokémon Go‘s release, the past few weeks have also seen a few updates no one was expecting, such as a bonus candy and Ghost-type themed Halloween week and this week’s bonus increased spawns. With all the recent updates, it’s entirely possible that Niantic’s slipped something new into the game.
