The news has come as a surprise to fans as the latest update has evidence of Gen 2 Pokemon. Data miners have uncovered nearly 40 new moves that point to Gen 2 release. Last time when Niantic introduced new moves, fans saw the release of Ditto, followed by the first Gen 2 Pokemon.

“Pokemon GO” fans uncovered the secrets of the update along with new features such as Shiny Pokemon and Evolution items. According to Express.co.uk, the new moves introduction must make up for new distance tracking changes that will reportedly make it harder to hatch eggs. Currently, “Pokemon GO” trainers are able to rack up few additional steps even when they are standing still as the game tracks distance travelled by a trainer via GPS.

The v0.53.1 “Pokemon GO” update has also upgraded the Apple Watch to display Eggs obtained from PokeStops and has also made text fixes. The new Pokemon moves discovered by data miners are Counter, Powder Snow, Charge Beam, Volt Switch, Dragon Tail, Infestation, Struggle Bug, Astonish, Iron Tail, Fire Spin, Bullet Seed, Extrasensory, Air Slash, Hex, Snarl Close Combat, Dynamic Punch, Focus Blast, Aurora Beam, Wild Charge, Zap Cannon, Avalanche and Brave Bird.

Other moves discovered in “Pokemon GO” are Sky Attack, Sand Tomb, Rock Blast, Silver Wind, Night Shade, Gyro Ball, Heavy Slam, Overheat, Grass Knot, Energy Ball, Futuresight, Mirror Coat, Outrage, Crunch and Foul Play. Meanwhile, another update has added 17 Pokestops to the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos to combat poverty, The Next Web reports. The 17 new Pokestops are in recognition of the 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development.

“We’ve always wanted both Niantic and Pokémon GO to be a force for good in the world. We are extremely proud to partner with the Global Goals campaign to help remind people of how critically important the Goals are while hopefully keeping the world’s leaders focused on delivering on them,” said founder of Niantic, John Hanke.
