The world of Pokémon GO is evolving once again! This week, keep an eye out for Pokémon originally discovered in the Sinnoh region, featured in Pokémon Diamond, Pokémon Pearl, and Pokémon Platinum! Get ready to see Pokémon like Turtwig, Chimchar, and Piplup as they appear in Pokémon GO for the first time ever.
Pokémon originally discovered in the Sinnoh region will be making their way to Pokémon GO in waves! So, you can look forward to discovering even more Pokémon over the next few weeks appearing in the wild, hatching from Eggs, and battling in raids. Stay tuned to our official channels for updates about new Pokémon, new features, and expansions to existing features like Pokémon storage and more!
More discoveries from the Sinnoh region await, Trainers, so let’s get ready to GO!
Are you ready for a Sinnoh adventure? We’re excited to let you know that in preparation for the arrival of Pokémon originally discovered in the Sinnoh region, we are making two key shifts to the game balance in the coming weeks. These changes are based on Trainer feedback and are designed to promote an improved overall experience.
Changes to Pokémon Migration and Behavior
As you explore the world of Pokémon GO, the following changes will affect the Pokémon that appear around you:
We are making adjustments to weather and, moving forward, it will have a reduced effect on the rate at which Pokémon appear.
As you explore a given area, you will notice that a greater variety of Pokémon species will appear over time and at different rates.
Certain areas, such as parks and nature reserves, will now contain more varied Pokémon species.
Changes to Pokémon Effectiveness in Battle
We also wanted to use this opportunity to rebalance in-game battle mechanics. You may notice some of the following changes in the coming weeks:
CP values will be adjusted going forward to improve game balance.
HP values will be adjusted to close the gap between high HP Pokémon and low HP Pokémon.
Pokémon Defense and Stamina values will be retroactively rebalanced, allowing highly defensive Pokémon to be valuable in battle by outlasting opponents rather than simply running out the clock.
Defense values have also been slightly retroactively reduced for most Pokémon. Changes like these will help narrow the gap between Pokémon with the highest defensive stats and other Pokémon.
Moving forward, you can expect to see further tweaks designed to help Trainers and their Pokémon reach their full potential. We’re looking forward to experiencing these changes with you as we explore the world together! Let’s get out there and GO!

Get a Cardio Workout at Home or On the Go with Fitness Boxing for Nintendo Switch
It’s time to get off the couch and get moving! In the Fitness Boxinggame, a Nintendo Switch exclusive launching on Jan. 4, you can participate in boxing-based workouts while bopping along to instrumental versions of some popular music hits.
While gripping the Nintendo Switch Joy-Con controllers, you will be punching, weaving and squatting using the built-in motion controls to get your whole body moving – no need for additional gym equipment! It’s a great way to burn off some calories after holiday gatherings or work on those fitness New Year’s resolutions you make every year.
Daily training in Fitness Boxing offers both low- and high-intensity options. After selecting from a diverse group of trainers, you can customize their looks with unlockable trainer outfits. The game estimates your approximate body mass index (BMI) and daily calories burned so you can track your progress. As you move toward reaching your goals, you can earn more songs and will also have the opportunity to engage with more challenging training circuits.
With two-player mode, you can team up with a friend or family member to play in tandem or face off in a virtual boxing ring.
Because of the portable power of the Nintendo Switch system, Fitness Boxing can be played at home in TV Mode or on the go using Tabletop mode. For busy moms that might not have time to head to the gym, this game is a great way to get in a quick workout no matter where you are.
