"Pokemon Go" has some new content to look out for, directed especially to those waiting for new updates. The Niantic Labs masterpiece is all but over when it comes to going back to the top as one of the most popular apps to date.

According to Slash Gear, the "Pokemon Go" update will be made up of over 80 new creatures in the Pokedex, primarily from the second generation, as well as the Johto addition. This is one feat that many have waited on for quite some time, but that is not all that is coming to the title. Version 0.57.2 for the Android has been divulged online, starting with the Shiny Pokemon.

It was said that the Shiny code for "Pokemon Go" has stayed hidden and it is only until recently that it was updated. New information suggests the coes "Play Shiny FX," "Shiny Spawn FX" and "Support Shiny," hinting what could be the next array of color schemes for the title. The same report mentioned an emerging "Sparkly FX" which could happen when a Shiny Pokemon first appears.

Evolution stone attributes were also raised as part of the "Pokemon Go" update, namely the Sun Stone, Metal Coat, Dragon Scale and Kings Rock. Upgrade is also included, although it is still questionable whether it will do the same as Evolve. Pokeball toss updates will similarly be in the mix, namely Critical Shake, Critical Click and Catch Success Critical. For now, it is said that it could either be active or perhaps will be soon enough.

New Avatar customization is expected to go live in the game, such as Skin, Shirt, Pants, Shoes, Hat, Eyes, Socks, Gloves, Belt, Necklaces and Glasses. New music are also said to be part of it, namely the Map Music for day and night, as well as the encounter music. Sadly, no clear news has emerged yet on when the Johto Pokemon will be launched.

"Pokemon Go" was launched last July 6, 2016. Since then, multiple updates have surfaced for the game, such as events, bug fixes and more. There may be some countries and vicinities that prohibit the use of this app, mostly due to the public pandemonium it can cause. Nonetheless, Niantic Labs continues to provide content for the game despite its somewhat faltering reputation.
