Apple App Store Accidentally Reveals Gen 3 Starters for Pokémon Go

By Laura Kate Dale on at

While we already have the first few Gen 3 Pokémon in Pokémon Go thanks to this year's Halloween event, the wider rollout of Gen 3 creatures hasn't yet happened. While some speculated it might be coming in the new year, a leaked image on the Apple app store suggests Pokémon Go Gen 3 might be coming sooner than expected.

The image, uploaded to the iOS App Store earlier than intended by someone at Niantic, shows off the three starter Pokémon for Gen 3 — Mudkip Treeco and Torchic.

The Pokémon Go Halloween event was leaked in a similar fashion a few days before it began, suggesting to many the new starters may be coming very soon.
