Pokémon Go Gen 4 — the Pokémon First encountered in the Sinnoh region — could be coming any time. That means you should start preparing now. Unlike Gen 3, many current Pokémon get all-new evolutions in Gen 4. Some are powerful. Others are just plain cool. Here are the current Pokémon you want to catch and hatch now, so you have enough candy for the new Gen 4 evolutions next.

Who are the Gen 4 starters?

Unto every generation of Pokémon are born starters — grass, fire, and water-types to kick it off. For Gen 4, that includes:

  • Grass: Turtwig > Grotle > Torterra
  • Fire: Chimchar > Monferno > Infernape
  • Water: Piplup > Prinplup > Empoleon

Which Gen 4 Pokémon will be Regional in Pokémon Go?

We won't know for sure until Gen 4 launches.

What will they do with Mime Jr. considering Mr. Mime is already a Regional?

This is the thousand Euro question. Babies currently only hatch from eggs and Regionals currently don't hatch from eggs. There are also no regions with two exclusive Pokémon (overlapping Regionals notwithstanding.)

So, something is going to have to give.

Are there any Gen 4 Regionals?

Three so far:

  1. Pachirisu —Regional to the far north of Canada, Russia, Alaska (above Tauros)
  2. Chatot — Regional to the southern part of the Southern Hemisphere, including southern South America, Africa, and Australasia.
  3. Carnivine —Southern United States and Caribbean.
