Pokémon Go data miners have uncovered a few interesting features in the mobile game’s latest update, including the global arrival of Celebi.
According to Pokémon Go Hub‘s breakdown of update 0.111.2, the next Special Research Quest featuring Generation II’s Mythical is ready to go. The analysis of the package confirmed that the new questline could be added at any time. Trainers that attended this year’s Go Fest were given an early chance to capture the Psychic/Grass-type creature, but the upcoming Special Research will finally give players across the globe an opportunity to catch it.
The data miners also uncovered an odd and mysterious new item. Hidden within the update’s static assets was what appeared to be an alternately colored Pinap Berry. Instead of being yellow, the item appeared silver. Currently, Pinap Berries can be used on wild Pokémon to increase the number of candies that are awarded after capture, but it’s unclear if this silver version will have a similar effect.
The update also contained references to the new Lucky Pokémon. However, Niantic has already published a blog post covering the new creatures, which will apparently be traded Pokémon that will take less Stardust and candy to power up. Trainers can now try some trading experiments, as the Lucky ‘mons have officially been added.
Apart from trading and more quests, Pokémon Go players can hunt down new raid bosses that were recently added. Two new Alolan forms—Raichu and Marowak—are now available through the Gym battle system, as well as the Hoenn Legendary Registeel.
Pokémon Go is available for iOS and Android.
