Trainers have now discovered that among the new Gen 3 Pocket Monsters, it’s now possible to grab a shiny Aron.
Numbers aren’t in on just how rare this new find is, however, Aron is just one of a number of new Pokemon now available to catch.
In total, Niantic have released 23 new Pocket Monsters into the wild, with some of them harder to find than others.
According to the official Pokemon Company website, there are two new Pokemon which are now part of a rotating regional launch.
“Of particular note are the mighty Lunatone and Solrock, which can be found throughout the world, but never in the same region at the same time,” the official Pokemon announcement reads.
“Trainers should also be on the lookout for other familiar Pokémon like Aggron, Trapinch, Nosepass, and Camerupt. So stock up on Poké Balls and head on out for your next Pokémon GO adventure. That Pokédex isn’t going to complete itself.”
And while there are plenty of new catches to choose from, early indications show that Aron maybe one of the strongest new additions to the game.
And from that image, fans have put together a quick list of which new Pokemon will be available to catch.
They’ve done this by looking at the new Gen 3 Pokemon covered in the announcement, before adding evolutions and variants, as well as other datamined information.
The Pokemon Go fan-list includes: Cacnea, Cacturne, Numel, Camerupt, Aron, Lairon, Aggron, Trapinch, Vibrava, Flygon,, Whismur, Loudred, Exploud, Solrock and Lunatune.
“Looks desert themed so I would guess what’s pictured along with the fossils,” One fans wrote online.
“That only leaves 4 more slots. so maybe baltoy/claydol and then another duo (not metagross).”
Niantic have not released an official list on what new Pokemon are coming to the game and will probably leave it up to Trainers to find out exactly what has been let loose into the wild.
“Starting later today, 23 additional Pokémon originally discovered in the Hoenn region in the Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire video games will begin appearing in Pokémon GO for the very first time,” the official teaser from the studio reads.
“As you’re out adventuring with friends and family and exploring your local neighborhoods, be sure to share your favorite moments and photos using #PokemonGO on your social media channels.”
The image posted by Niantic also includes Kyogre, who just so happens to be this month’s big Legendary catch.
He’s available until February 14 and it seems unlikely that he’ll be part of the new Pokemon that will be available to catch in the wild.
It’s currently unknown when these new Pokemon will be released, Niantic have not provided a time for launch.
However, based on how other events have been rolled out, the new Pokemon Go Gen 3 release could start happening around 9pm, GMT.
Pokemon Go developer Niantic also recently announced the second Community Day event.
The next Community Day will take place on February 24 from 10am UK time until 1pm GMT.
Players will earn three times the amount of Stardust for the duration of the event, while Lures will last for all 3 hours.
If the first Community event is anything to go by, Dratini could get a Shiny variant.
It’s also useful if you want to evolve your Dratini into Dragonair and the powerful Dragonite.
Fans can keep up to date with the monthly Pokemon Go events by bookmarking the brand new Community Day page.
“Get out and play together in your local community parks on Pokemon GO Community Day,” reads a Niantic post.
“For just a few hours each month, you can encounter a special Pokemon in the wild.
“During these hours, there’s a chance to learn a previously unavailable move for that Pokemon, as well as earn some Community Day bonuses.
