Pokémon Go does not often launch a new Pokémon - and when it does, it'll usually arrive alongside a wave of others, or at the start of a new month's raiding cycle.
Not so last night, when the game quietly dropped Spinda as a brand new task reward, for landing three curveball throws in a row.
The spiral-eyed Pokémon (hence the curveball quest) had been one of the game's handful of skipped species - unusual breeds with odd gameplay quirks which require more planning from developer Niantic than usual to implement.
In the main Pokémon games, Spinda is notable for having randomised colour spots dotted across its body. The mathmatical total for all possible variants is just over four billion.
In Pokémon Go, developer Niantic has simplified things - a lot - by creating eight specific designs it will release as separate forms. As of last night, one is available.
Every PokéStop with the task offers this same Spinda design - a little chap with a colour spots which look like a goatee. In your Pokémon Go Pokédex, it is listed as Spinda's form number eight.
All of which begs the question - when will other Spinda forms be released? Will they be daily? If number eight is the start, are they counting down to something?
