Comprehensive list of gen 3 Pokémon Trainers can catch right now

Pokemon GO.jpg

Earlier this week, a bunch of new gen three Pokémon (mostly) of the dragon and flying type were released in the wild. The Silph Road has been compiling a comprehensive list detailing all the new content released with the update. These include the new gen three Pokémon, Raid additions to catch, new nesting Pokémon, and lots more.

Keep in mind that Niantic is only allowing gen 3 Pokémon to spawn in the wild until February 14, so it'll be a lot simpler to spot these. Now is the best time to fill up your Pokedex with the six-hour lures that remain active until February 24.

South African Trainers will be delighted to know that the Silph Road reports that so far it looks like at least two of the new gen three Pokémon get region exclusive treatment - and Africa is included in the list to catch Illumise and Tropius.

New Gen 3 Pokémon to catch right now

  1. Castform: Has three forms depending on the weather (sunny, rainy, and snowy)
  2. Swablu: Evolves into Altaria; it can be either a normal or a flying Pokémon and requires 400 candy to evolve
  3. Surskit: Evolves into Masquerain; it can be either a normal or water Pokémon
  4. Bagon (dragon): Evolves into Shelgon, then into Salamence
  5. Taillow: Evolves into Swellow; it can be either a normal or a flying Pokémon
  6. Volbeat (Bug): can produce Eggs that contain either Illumise or Volbeat when bred with Ditto
  7. Illumise (Bug): Can evolve into any other Pokémon
  8. Beldum (Steel/Psychic): Evolves into Metang, then into Metagross
  9. Tropius: A grass/flying Pokémon that grows stronger in bright sunlight
