Dozens and dozens of Pokémon originally discovered in the Hoenn region in the Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire video games are now appearing in Pokémon Go for the first time. Yes. Gen 3 is here.

The ghosts were first. Then the Fairy, Electric, Grass, Normal, Poison, Dark, and Fighting. Then it was Ice and Water's turn. Then Rock and desert dwellers. Now, it's time for the dragons. And this is what you need to know to catch 'em all!

June 21, 2018: Pokémon Go Gen 3: Regice is here and Lunatone & Solrock swapped!

Regice is the first of the Legendary titans of Hoenn to enter Pokémon Go — and will be available to Raid until July 19!

Pokémon's legendary year continues with three Legendary Pokémon originally discovered in the Hoenn region harnessing their power to take over Raid Battles in Pokémon GO, starting with Regice on June 21!

Regice, the Iceberg Pokémon, has awakened from its slumber and will be the first to appear in Raid Battles across the world until July 19. This Ice-type Legendary Pokémon has a strong defense, but is weak to Fire-, Fighting-, Rock-, and Steel-type attacks.

The presence of this defensive powerhouse kicks off a summer of earth-shattering events, as Regirock and Registeel will also roar into Gyms worldwide!

Don't miss this chance to catch this Legendary Pokémon before it returns to another long slumber! Stay safe, and happy exploring!

April 2, 2018: The Eon Duo, Legendary Dragon-types Latios and Latias, are now appearing in Raids

Gen 3 is all about the Dragon-types, including the first Legendary Dragons, and Latios and Latias — the Eon Duo — are here.

From Pokémon Go:

As Pokémon's legendary year continues, two Legendary Pokémon originally discovered in the Hoenn region are appearing in Pokémon GO Raid Battles for the first time! Dragon- and Psychic-type Pokémon Latias and Latios will appear in different areas around the world for a limited time starting April 2.

Drawn to compassionate spirits, the Eon Pokémon Latias and Latios are known for being highly intelligent, and are able to communicate telepathically with humans. They are also stealthy and extremely fast in flight—with Latias able to use its down to refract light to make itself invisible and Latios able to overtake jet planes. Make sure you encounter these special and elusive Pokémon while they roam during this limited time!

The Legendary Pokémon Latias will appear in Raid Battles across Europe and Asia, while Latios will appear in North America, South America, and Africa. On May 8, the Eon Pokémon will switch locations and will be available until June 5, so all Trainers will have the opportunity to catch both powerful Pokémon.

Which Gen 3 Pokémon are out now?

Gen 3 kicked off with Ghost-types for Halloween, starting October 20, 2017, at 12:00 P.M. PDT.

On December 15, we saw the first Gen 3 Legendary, with Groudon Raids starting up.

From Pokémon Go:

Groudon, the Ground-type Legendary Pokémon originally discovered in the Hoenn region, is now appearing in Raid Battles around the world!

Who are the Pokémon Go Gen 3 starters?

Just like Gen 1 had Bulbasaur, Squirtle, and Charmander, and Gen 2 had Chikorita, Cyndaquil, and Totodile, Gen 3 has a set of Grass-, Fire-, and Water-type starters all its own. Gen 2 didn't make any special use of its starters, aside from making them characteristically hard to catch and keeping them out of Pokémon Eggs for extended periods of time. It's likely Gen 3 won't either. Still, if the starters hold a special place in your heart, here's a reminder of who they are in Gen 3:

Gen 3 Grass-type starter Pokémon and evolutions

  • Treecko: Grass — 923
  • Grovyle: Grass — 1508
  • Sceptile: Grass — 2584

Gen 3 Fire-type starter Pokémon and evolutions

  • Torchic: Fire — 959
  • Combusken: Fire / Fighting — 1472
  • Blaziken: Fire / Fighting — 2631

Gen 3 Water-type starter Pokémon and evolutions

  • Mudkip: Water — 981
  • Marshtomp: Water / Ground — 1617
  • Swampert: Water / Ground — 2815

Any common Gen 3 Pokémon good for XP grinding?

Gen 1 gave us three common, 12-candy evolutions to grind for XP: Pidgey, Caterpie, and Weedle. Gen 2... gave us none. With Gen 3, we have two so far:

  1. Wurmple: Bug — 502
  2. Whismur: Normal — 603

There are no 25 candy evolutions in Gen 3 so far, so nothing equivalent to Rattata or Sentrat.


How do you evolve Feebas into Milotic? Does it need Friendship?

Milotic is a Water-type Pokémon, sometimes called the Gyarados. It evolves from Feebas, which is reminiscent of Magikarp. Unlike Gyarados and Magikarp candy, though, It doesn't take 400 Feebas candy to evolve Milotic. It only takes 100. But, it also takes Friendship.

Friendship is a mechanic we saw in Pokémon Go Gen 2 where, in order to evolve an Eevee into Espeon or Umbreon, you had to make it your Buddy Pokémon and walk it for 10 KM.

Feebas is similar. But in order to evolve it into Miltoic, you need to walk it 20 KM.

Important: You can't just walk any Feebas for 20 KM in order to evolve one into Milotic. You need to walk the specific Feebas you want to evolve for 20 KM. That means, if you want a good (high iV) Milotic, you first need to find a good (high IV) Feebas. If you find a better Feebas you'd rather evolve, you'll have to start over.

  1. Tap on your Avatar.
  2. Tap on your Buddy.
  3. Tap on the Switch button, bottom right.
  4. Tap on Yes to confirm you want to switch buddies.
  5. Choose the Feebas you want to walk.
  6. Walk with your Feebas Buddy for 20 KM.
  7. Collect 100 Feebas candy as you go (if you haven't already).
  8. Tap on your Feebas Buddy.
  9. Tap Evolve.

Once you're done, you'll have your Milotic. If you didn't get Waterfall and Surf as the Fast and Charge moves, you'll want to TM them at your soonest opportunity. If you want the best moveset, that is.

How do you evolve Wailord and Altaria?

Wailord is one of the biggest Pokémon in the game — a literal blue whale Water-type. Altaria is another Dragon / Flying-type in a generation that includes some of the biggest and baddest in the game. Neither of them are as potent as Gyarados, but they still require 400 candy to evolve.

But, hey, at least they don't need Friendship.

  1. Wailmer: Water — 1424
  2. Wailord: Water — 2258

  3. Swablu: Normal / Flying — 722

  4. Altaria: Dragon / Flying — 1868


Is Wailord as ridiculously oversized in Gyms as Steelix?

More. Even funnier is Wailord as a buddy. Behind you, you can only see its eye. In front of you, you can't see anything else. Including you.

How do you evolve Wurmple into Dustox and Beautifly? Is it really random?

Wurmple has a split second-stage evolution: It can evolve into either Cascoon or Silcoon. Split evolutions are something we've seen since Gen 1, also with Eevee. Evolve an Eevee and you could get Flareon, Jolteon, or Vaporeon. Picture that, but with only two second-stage possibilities — and with each of those possibilities having a third stage evolution.

Important: Unlike Eevee in Gen 1, there's no trainer name trick you can use to guarantee control of at least one of each evolution. Unlike Eevee in Gen 2, there's also no Friendship mechanic and day vs. night trick to guarantee control over all evolutions. With Wurmple, second stage evolutions seem to be totally and completely random.

  1. Choose the Wurmple you want to evolve.
  2. Tap Evolve.
  3. Repeat as often as is necessary to get both Cascoon and Silcoon.
  4. Evolve Cascoon into Dustox and Silcoon into Beautifly whenever you have the candy and the opportunity.

Which of the current Gen 3 Pokémon can you hatch from Pokémon Eggs?

Several. And, as expected, they run the gamut of distances and rarity tiers. Only one of them is exclusive to Eggs so far:: Baby Azurill.

  1. Poochyena: Dark — 564

How about Raid Battles? Are any of the Gen 3 Pokémon Raid bosses?

A lot now. most seem to spawn and show up in Raids. But Mawile and Absol are Raid-only for now. And, of course, the Legendaries are exclusive to Raids.

  1. Tier 2: Mawile: Steel — 1484
  2. Tier 4: Absol: Dark — 2280
  3. Tier 5: Groudon: Ground — 4074 [Over]

What are the regional exclusive Pokémon in Gen 3?

Image via The Sliph Road

There are a bunch. The first few are somewhat traditional:

  1. Relicanth: Rock / Water — 2557 (New Zealand and surrounding islands)
  2. Torkoal: Fire — 2036 (India)
  3. Tropius: Grass / Flying — 1846 (Africa and the Mediterranean.)

The next few rotate between regions, but in pairs that never cross paths. So, if one is in the Americas, the other may be in Europe, or vice versa.

  1. Zangoose: Normal — 2214
  2. Seviper: Poison — 1928

Zangoose started in the Americas and Africa but switched to Europe, Asia, and Australia on January 4, 2018. Seviper, vice versa.

  1. Volbeat: Bug — 1620
  2. Illumise: Bug — 1620

Volbeat currently appears in the same region as Zangoose, Illumise the same as Seviper.

  1. Lunatone: Rock / Psychic — 2245
  2. Solrock: Rock / Psychic — 2245

Solrock started in the Americas and Africa but switched to Europe, Asia, and Australia on Summer, June 21, 2018. Lunatone, vice versa.

There are a couple of Pokémon that started out as hemispheric regionals as well, but quickly switched to be universal.

  1. Plusle: Electric — 1681 (Americas and Africa)
  2. Minun: Electric — 1585 (Europe, Asia, and Australia)

Conventional wisdom is the Pokémon Company pointed out to Niantic that, in the mythos, the two were best friends who shouldn't be separated. Awwww.

Who are the Legendary Pokémon in Gen 3?

Legendary Pokémon are significantly boosted in Gen 3 with a whopping eight new arrivals — almost as many as in Gen 1 and Gen 2 combined. There are a couple of new Mythicals as well.

Weather Trio

The Weather Trio represent the hydrosphere, the lithosphere, and the atmosphere, and were the icons of the original Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald games.

Currently, the Weather Trio are the only Gen 3 Legendary Pokémon available in Pokémon Go, but only in Tier 5 Raids and each only for a limited time:

  1. Groudon: Ground — 4074 (ended January 15, 2018).
  2. Kyogre: Water — 4074 (ended Februrary 14, 2018, returned in Shiny form until June 21).
  3. Rayquaza: Dragon / Flying — 3645 (ended March 16, 2018).

Legendary Titans

Where Gen 1 had Legendary Birds and Gen 2 had Legendary Beasts, Gen 3 has Legendary Titans. Unlike previous generations, the Titans aren't based on the typical red/fire, yellow/electric, blue/water or ice formula. With Gen 3, we get some rock and some steel. Also, like Gen 1, the Legendary Titan's master doesn't show up until the next generation — in this case, Regigigas in Gen 4.

  • Regirock: Rock — 3087 (currently in Raids until July 19)
  • Regice: Ice — 3087
  • Registeel: Steel — 2261

Eon Duo

"Eon Duo" is a term applied to a pair of powerful psychic dragons — the female Latias and male Latios.

  • Latias: Dragon / Psychic — 3377 (ended June 5, 2018)
  • Latios: Dragon / Psychic — 3644 (ended June 5, 2018)

Jirachi

Jirachi is a Steel- and Psychic-type Pokémon. Since we haven't seen Gen 1's Mew or Gen 2's Celebi yet, Jirachi is likely still a long way off.

Deoxys

The mythical Psychic-type Pokémon, Deoxys, has additional forms each of which focus on a different stat. (Speed isn't currently implemented in Pokémon Go, though Stamina is, so it'll be interesting to see how it's all implemented.)

  • Normal Form
  • Attack Form
  • Defense Form
  • Speed Form

Who are the new Dragonite, Tyranitar, Blissey, and Snorlax of Pokémon Go Gen 3?

When Pokémon Go Gen 2 debuted, Tyranitar was seen as the new Dragonite and Blissey as the new Snorlax. Gen 3 likewise brings some new super-powered Pokémon to the gaming table.

Slaking

Slacking should have had a CP over 5000 — FIVE THOUSAND — but Pokémon Go reduced (nerfed) it before it ever had a chance. Even so, it can still reach over 4500. And while Slaking doesn't have the stamina of Blissey or Snorlax, it ranks just below the latter. It's stuck with the powerless Yawn as a quick move, but Play Rough makes it a good defender — especially against the Fighter-types that would normally dynamic punch right through it.

  • Slakoth: Normal — 942
  • Vigoroth: Normal — 1896
  • Slaking: Normal — 4548

Metagross

Nothing is going to touch Tyranitar for generations to come, but Metagross and it's Psychic- and Steel-typing is going to significantly round things out.

  • Beldum: Steel / Psychic — 843
  • Metang: Steel / Psychic — 1570
  • Metagross: Steel / Psychic — 3644

Salamence

By contrast, Salamence will absolutely be the new Dragonite. Also a Dragon- and Flying-type, it does a little more damage but is a little less durable. We'll just have to see where the movesets land.

  • Bagon: Dragon — 1053
  • Shelgon: Dragon — 1958
  • Salamence: Dragon / Flying — 3532

Any Pokémon like Unown in Generation 3?

There are a couple of Pokémon in Gen 3 that have multiple forms, though none to the extent of Unown. One of them in Mythical, the other... cloudy. Speaking of Unown, it gets some additional forms in Gen 3 as well.

Unown

Everyone's favorite alphabet-shaped, Psychic-type Pokémon gets into punctuation in Gen 3. They aren't in the game yet, but eventually we should see:

  • Question Mark
  • Exclamation Point

Castform

Normal-type? Fire-type? Water-type? Ice-type? With Castform, it's appearance and even its typing varies based on the weather.

  • Normal
  • Sunny
  • Rainy
  • Snowy

Are there any new evolutions for existing Pokémon in Gen 3?

Sadly, no. Gen 3 is pretty much its own thing. Gen 4, though will introduce several new evolutions for Gen 1 and Gen 2 Pokémon alike.

What about babies? Any new Pokémon babies in Gen 3?

Because, babies, right? You don't have to prepare for them because they'll be new pre-evolutions, not post-evolutions. But, in case you're curious, here are the new Gen 3 babies:

  • Azurill (baby Marill)
  • Wynaut (baby Wobuffet)


Do any Pokémon from Gen 3 have new evolutions or babies in Gen 4?

Several! These are the Pokémon from Gen 3 that you'll want to keep catching and hatching so you get as much candy as possible and as good a candidate (high IV) as possible, for future evolutions.

  • Ralts and Kirlia to evolve into Galade (split)
  • Nosepass to evolve into Probopass.
  • Roselia to evolve into Roserade.
  • Duskull and Duskclops to evolve into Dusknoir.
  • Snorut to evolve into Froslass.

Gen 4 also adds a couple new babies for a couple Gen 3 Pokémon:

  • Budew (baby Roselia)
  • Chingling (baby Chimecho)

What do you want to see in Pokémon Go Gen 3?

How Pokémon Go deals with Rhydon — already a 3000+ CP 'mon — evolving into Rhyperior is going to be interesting, isn't it? If you have any idea, or any questions about Gen 3 or Gen 4 in general, drop 'em in the comments below!
