This new feature arrives alongside the reveal of over a hundred new Pokemon that will be in the game in the future such as:
This feature is not necessarily a completely new one to the franchise. In the original Pokemon games, baby Pokemon were bred rather than simply caught. This indicates that baby Pokemon in the mobile app will be hatched rather than obtained through catching them.
Not all original Pokemon had baby versions however. Here’s a list of what ones did though:
- Pikachu (Pichu)
- Clefairy (Cleffa)
- Jigglypuff (Igglybuff)
- Electabuzz (Elekid)
- Snorlax (Munchlax)
- Magmar (Magby)
- Hitmonlee (Tyrogue)
- Jinx (Smoochum)
- Mr. Mime (Mime Jr.)
- Chansey (Happiny)
Apparently, these Pokemon will carry onto the new mobile app and will continue the legacy of them. Most creatures cannot be bred into legendary types also. It’s quite a limited range.
The inclusion of Baby Pokemon arrives as the new Buddy System is taking shape. It marks an exciting future ahead for players still invested in Pokemon’s mobile offering.
