Pokemon Go has received a steady stream of tweaks and updates since its explosive debut back in Summer 2016, but the game will get its first major branded update next month. Dubbed Go Beyond, the massive update will be rolled out over the week of November 30, and it introduces some significant changes to the mobile game, including the first Gen 6 Pokemon, a higher level cap, seasons, and much more.
Niantic had previously teased that Kalos Pokemon were on the way to Pokemon Go, and the first Gen 6 monsters will arrive as part of the Go Beyond update. Starting December 2, players will be able to encounter a handful of Gen 6 Pokemon (and their evolutions) in the game, including X and Y starters Chespin, Fennekin, and Froakie, as well as Bunnelby, Fletchling, and Litleo.
To coincide with the arrival of Gen 6 Pokemon, Niantic is holding a special event in the game in early December. Throughout the event, Gen 6 Pokemon will appear in the wild more frequently, effectively ensuring everyone gets a chance to catch them. The event kicks off at 10 AM local time on December 2 and runs until 10 PM local time on December 8.
