For anyone who is a Gen 3 Pokemon fans, Niantic have helpfully provided a very big boost this week.While most of the recent Pokemon Go news  has been dominated by the release of the new wave of Pocket Monsters, the development team is also offering a helpful bonus.For a limited time, Trainers can guarantee to grab as many Gen 3 Pokemon as they can from whatever new eggs they hatch.

The news was confirmed on the game’s official Twitter page, explaining: “Trainers, we have some Egg-citing news! Super Incubators are now available in the in-game shop until 2/1.

“Get hatching, Trainers. For a limited time, every Egg you hatch will feature a Pokémon originally discovered in the Hoenn region.”

So until February 1, Trainers have a great chance of bulking out their current Gen 3 lineup, with plenty of incentive to do it.

That’s because a few new Shiny Pokemon have been revealed, some of which can pack quite a punch.Arons are now available to catch in the wild and are among the best of the new Pokemon added this week.What makes them even better is that they also come in a Shiny variant and have three evolution stages.

That means Trainers have the chance of grabbing a new Shiny they want, while also adding a top Pokemon to their team.

The final evolution for Aron is Aggron, which is also currently available to battle as a Raid boss.

However, fans can avoid this encounter and instead go for an epic Aron evolution mission, made even better if you track down a shiny version too.

This new Gen 3 Raid boss is now live and comes in at the tier 4 level, and can provide 1716 CP if caught at Level 20 as a 100% IV.

This can be boosted to 2145 CP if caught with the right Weather Effect active.

In terms of which new Pokemon to use to catch Aggron, Kyogre, Groudon and Machamp have all been identified as good picks.

Having a good mix of Fighting, Ground and Water Pokemon will make taking on Aggron easier, although there is another way to obtain it.

The next wave of Gen 3 Pokemon could be announced next month, with February 15 serving as a good launch day.

That’s when the latest Kyogre Raid run will be done and will also be around the same time in 2017 when a lot of Gen 2 Pokemon were added to the game.
