Pokémon Go will see more Kalos region Pokémon coming to the game sooner rather than later. The most recent datamining efforts by Pokéminers have confirmed an upcoming background feature where players will need to flip their devices upside down to evolve a Pokémon.

Players used this technique to transform Inkay into its evolved form, Malamar. While the exact release date has not been shared, the recent APK push will come with this new feature. The full APK teardown for 0.201.0 by the datamining team can be seen on their recent Reddit post to TheSilphRoad group.

The team also shared that an upcoming feature called egg transparency is on the way. This new format will allow players to directly see what Pokémon could potentially be hatching from their eggs while they’re resting in the incubator. Previously, there was a large general pool of Pokémon for every egg type. After players reached the walking requirement, the egg would hatch from any of those potential Pokémon, and players had no idea what it would be. The upcoming egg transparency system should make it a bit more clear or show various rarity tiers for each Pokémon that can hatch from that egg.

Other Pokémon are also on the way from the Galar region, with the Niantic team adding in Galarian Slowking and Cursola. Both of these Pokémon will likely be available for a limited time through special events released in the future.

Pokémon Go released the Kalos Pokémon alongside their massive Beyond Go update in late November. With Inkay on the way, there are likely other Kalos region Pokémon coming alongside it. Developer Niantic has been giving a lot of love to Kalos Pokémon, such as Fletching, who will be featured in March as the Community Day Pokémon to learn the Fire-type fast move incinerate.
