Earlier today, Niantic had released information regarding the release of more generation 3 Pokemon. Rather or not it is the rest of generation 3 Pokemon we are still uncertain. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the ones that come today.
It appears the most of the Pokemon we will be catching today will be most of the ground type Pokemon of generation 3. The last release of new creatures was mostly water type Pokemon. The theme of which Pokemon Niantic will be introducing suggests there will be one more wave of generation 3 Pokemon.
Since 2018 begin Pokemon GO is updating data-miners recently discovered that Pokemon Go developers had added new 3D assets to a new shiny Pokemon.The new Pokemon is shiny versions of Chikorita and its evolutions. These weren’t exactly new additions, as it appears that the game’s developers had added the Shiny versions of the Johto Starter Pokemon about a month ago.
Shiny Pokemon have alternate colorations than normal non-Shiny Pokemon and are prized by Pokemon collectors due to their extreme rarity. While Pokemon Go developers have added 3D assets for many Shiny Pokemon in the game (including all the “Gen 3” Pokemon and all the Legendary Pokemon,) only a handful of Shiny Pokemon are currently available in the game.
On average, developers add one new set of Shiny Pokemon every few months. Most recently, Pokemon Go added Shiny versions of Snorunt and Glalie as part of last December’s Holiday celebration. Players can also get Shiny versions of Magikarp, Gyarados, Pichu, Pikachu, Raichu, Duskull, Dusclops, Shuppet, Banette, Sableye, Absol, and Mawile.
The most noticeable difference between a regular Chikorita and its Shiny form is the color of its leaf. While a normal Chikorita has a regular green leaf, a Shiny Chikorita’s leaf is brown. Shiny Bayleef’s body is much browner hue than a normal Bayleef and a Shiny Meganium has yellow skin and an orange flower instead of its usual green skin and pink flower.
So why did Pokemon Go add a Shiny Chikorita to the game? Well….no-one really knows. Pokemon Go’s recent emphasis has been on “Gen 3” Pokemon, but it’s possible that we could see a Shiny Chikorita appear as part of an upcoming event. After all, Pokemon Go recently increased the spawn rate of Shiny Pikachu for about three hours as part of last weekend’s “Community Day” mini-event. If a future Community Day somehow involves a Chikorita, don’t be surprised if we see its Shiny variants sneaked into the game as well.
There’s lots of unreleased Shiny Pokemon in Pokemon Go, so this could be nothing, or it could be a hint at what’s coming next.Along with all this excitement, Niantic announced next community day event.As Pokemon Go’s first ever Community Day may have only taken place this past weekend, but developer Niantic has already announced details for the next event. The second Pokemon Go Community Day will be held next month, on February 24, and it’ll give players a chance to catch a rare Dragon-type Pokemon.
Unlike previous Pokemon Go events such as Chicago’s Pokemon Go Fest and Europe’s Safari Zone events, Community Days aren’t held at a specific location, but rather during a designated window of time. This gives players around the world a chance to meet up at local parks at the specified time and catch Pokemon together. Players are able to earn in-game bonuses for the duration of the event; during February’s Community Day, catching Pokemon will net you triple the normal amount of Stardust, while Lure Modules will last for an extended period of three hours.
Most importantly, each Pokemon Go Community Day will feature a special Pokemon that knows a move it cannot typically learn in the game. During January’s Community Day, players were able to capture a Pikachu that could use Surf.
Dratini’s involvement is huge for the Pokemon Go community, as its evolved form Dragonite is one of the most powerful Pokemon in the game. Even though Legendary Pokemon have snatched the title of “Strongest Attacker” away from Dragonite, it’s still considered a top-tier attacker and has added value for being such a bulky defender in the game.
While Pokemon Go revealed the date and time of the next Community Day, they didn’t reveal what exclusive move Dratini would learn…or whether it would retain its special move after evolving. That special move could make all the difference as to how useful this new Dratini will be in battle.
The other big announcement was that the upcoming Community Day will have a 3x Stardust bonus, which will help players stockpile Stardust for powering up their Pokemon. When coupled with a Star Piece, players can get up to 4.5x the amount of Stardust than they usually do.

10 Gen 3 Pokemon That Are As Strong As Legendary Pokemon
Here is the list of Top 10 Gen 3 Pokemon That Are As Strong As Legendary Pokemon, and can help any player to capture and attack gyms.
Number 10 – Milotic
MAX CP- 2542
ATTACK – 60
DEFENSE – 79
STAMINA – 190
Milotic is an aquatic, serpentine Pokémon with a primarily cream-colored body. It has red eyes with long, pinkish antennae above them. Additionally, there are long, hair-like fins above its eyes, which begin thin and thicken towards the tips. These eyebrows extend to almost half of Milotic’s body length and will be longer on the female than the male. On top of its relatively small head is a straight spike. The tail consists of four large, blue fins with pink ovals in their centers. Each of the tail fins overlaps the next slightly, causing it to resemble a fan. While it has not been depicted, Milotic’s scales are said to change color depending on the viewing angle.
Number 9 – Flygon
MAX CP- 2458
ATTACK – 100
DEFENSE – 80
STAMINA – 160
Flygon resembles a slightly insectoid, bipedal dragon. It is primarily light green and has a pair of large rhombus-shaped wings with a red trim, toeless hind legs, and skinny arms with three-clawed hands. Its tail has several dark green stripes and three small green rhombus shapes with red trims at the end. It has large eyes and a pair of green antennae that point back. The eyes have red covers that prevent sand from getting into its eyes. With its wings, it kicks up sandstorms to hide. Its wings make a “singing” sound when they are flapped, earning Flygon the name “The Desert Spirit”. It lives in the desert.
Number 8 – Gardevoir
MAX CP- 2341
ATTACK – 65
DEFENSE – 65
STAMINA – 136
Beginning its life as Ralts (the Pokemon that kinda looks like male genitalia), it’s a little surprising it turns into Gardevoir – who looks a lot like some kind of elegant dancer (and a lot of other things, if you dare to venture into Google Image Search – which reminds us: NEVER GOOGLE IMAGE SEARCH ANY POKEMON EVER BUT ESPECIALLY NOT GARDEVOIR). Apart from its traumatic internet legacy, it’s a pretty solid Pokemon (now one of the added Fairy-types), and its Pokedex entries indicate that it would do anything to protect its trainer. Always nice to know your Pokemon has Stockholm’s Syndrome.
Number 7 –….
