How To Catch (& Evolve) New Unova Region Pokémon | Gen 5 Guide

New Gen 5 (Black and White) Pokémon are appearing in Pokémon GO. Before we get into the details of this update, here’s a quick list of all the Pokémon coming soon to a region near you.

These Pokémon will appear in the wild, so you’ll be able to capture any of them. Others are exclusive to specific regions — they’ll also appear in the wild, but only if you’re in that particular region, of course!

  • New Unova Pokémon [Region Specifc]
    • Pansage [Asia-Pacific]
    • Pansear [Europe, Middle-East, Africa & India]
    • Panpour [North America, South America & Greenland]
    • Heatmor [Western Hemisphere]
    • Durant [Eastern Hemisphere]

That’s all the Pokémon you’ll encounter in the wilds while exploring your map. There are still more Pokémon you can find by hatching eggs. Depending on the distance, different Pokémon will start to hatch.

  • Pokemon Hatching From Incubating Eggs [Gen 5]
    • 2 km Eggs: Patrat, Lillipup, Purrlion, Pidove
