Two new Evolution items are coming to Pokemon GO, according to an update on the game’s official support site.
The Deep Sea Scale and Deep Sea Tooth were included in a list of Evolution items posted on the site, as part of an explanation of the process.
“There are seven different types of Evolution items (Dragon Scale, Deepsea Scale, Deepsea Tooth, King’s Rock, Metal Coat, Sun Stone, and Up-Grade) that can be used to evolve these Pokemon.”
In Pokemon GO, certain Pokemon require Evolution items, in addition to Candy to evolve. The Deep Sea Scale and Deep Sea Tooth will be used to evolve Clamperl. Depending on the item used, it can be turned into either a Huntail or a Gorebyss. The two items will be available as PokeStop drops, which makes luck a factor in acquiring them both.
Clamperl, and its evolutions, are just some of the many generation 3 Pokemon added into the game recently as part of a major update. Players now have the opportunity to catch more than 50 new Pokemon from generation 3, some of which can be hatched from eggs. To save eager trainers some time, a hatching infographic was recently released that details which Pokemon from the new generation can be found in eggs.
Players aren’t entirely satisfied with the possibilities, however, and have complained about the inclusion of Sableye in the 10KM egg pool. As the Pokemon was extremely common during the game’s Halloween event, players aren’t thrilled about walking 10KM just to hatch something they already have. The large pool of Pokemon available in the 5KM eggs are also frustrating players, as a larger pool means lower probability of hatching the Pokemon they really want.
Another headache for players is a longstanding bug that is causing the nearby Pokemon radar to go blank. According to reports, the bug is affecting both the Android and iOS versions of the game, and has been for quite some time. Many players online are saying the recent addition of generation 3 Pokemon has only made it worse.
Currently, the only fix is a temporary one, which requires players to either restart the game or view their journal to get things working correctly again. Many who are experiencing the bug are baffled as to why it is being overlooked by developer Niantic. The delay could indicate the company hasn’t found a permanent fix quite yet.
Pokémon GO is available now for Android and iOS.
