Pokémon Go Gen 4 Pokémon list, estimated release date: Every creature from Diamond and Pearl's Sinnoh region listed
Pokémon Go's Gen 4 will offer 107 new Pokémon, the second largest addition of new creatures to the game since its summer 2016 debut - topping the 80 or so added in Gen 2, and close to the numbers we seen in Gen 3.
These Gen 4 Pokémon are from the franchise's fourth generation of games - Pokémon Diamond, Pearl and Platinum - and feature many evolutions of creatures from previous generations, as well as some new baby Pokémon and, as always, brand new Legendary creatures.
Gen 4 has finally been confirmed by Niantic, and even without one, their arrival one day is a certainty - especially as the game has jumped ahead and added Alolan Pokémon from the far future Gen 7.
With autumn here and certain events wrapping up, we have an estimated Pokémon Go Gen 4 release date.
Estimated Pokémon Go Gen 4 release date
Though Niantic has yet to reveal exactly when Gen 4 will arrive - the announcement alongside a host of game changes said they will be arriving in the coming weeks - we imagine it'll follow Gen 3's example of being rolled out in waves, with a handful of creatures to start with.
So when will it begin? Our best guess of an estimated Pokémon Go Gen 4 release date is around when Mewtwo has disappeared from raids. This takes place on Tuesday, October 23rd.
Niantic has been teasing Gen 4 starters on Twitter ahead of this date, however, while an update mentioning Sinnoh (Gen 4) creatures coming to the game has just been released - so it could be sooner:
That said, there is a strong chance Niantic will introduce a Halloween event towards the end of the month - and around October 23rd will be perfect timing.
The first Gen 3 types were Ghost Types during last year's Halloween event and we wouldn't be surprised to see something similar - especially with seven Ghost creatures in Gen 4, two of which (Dusknoir, Froslass) are evolutions of previously released Pokémon and one Legendary, Giratina.
What you need to know about Pokémon from Gen 4
Gen 4 follows some of the same traits as previous generations. There are three Grass, Fire and Water starters - all with two evolutions each - and the standard array of common birds and bugs alongside a fleet of powerful Legendaries.
There are, however, a number of interesting statistics that set it apart from previous generations:
