17 February 2017, 7:00 am EST By Catherine G. Mobile & Apps

The "Pokemon GO" Gen 2 release is reportedly going to be launched the coming week by Niantic. it is said to be the biggest update in the game ever since its original launch last mid year.

Niantic has now revealed several new features that have been hidden as different commands and codes in game files. The "Pokemon GO" Gen 2 release will take place this coming week for both Apple and Android smartphones. The biggest "Pokemon GO" update reportedly will bring 80 new Pocket Monsters for being caught by the players. They are also launching new berries for collection and usage. Not just this, even evolution items have been collected. According to the latest gathered information, the berries will be used for different purposes:

The Bluk Berry: It keeps the Pokemon in a trance and does not allow it to move.

The Razz Berry: This berry boosts the probability of capturing a Pokemon by almost 1.5 times!

The Wepar Berry: The radius of target circle increases- increasing chances of catching Pokemon.

The Nanab Berry: When the berry is used, the Pokemon does not return attack on the player.

The Pinap Berry: This helps slow down the shrinking of the capture circle.

However, it should be known that not all of the latest features, berries and Pokemon from the "Pokemon GO" Gen 2 game will be released together.

"More than 80 Pokemon that were originally discovered in the Johto region in the Pokemon Gold and Pokémon Silver video games, as well as Pokemon with gender-specific variations, will start rolling out in Pokemon Go," the Niantic statement reads. Atleast we should rejoice the fact that some of the new Pokemon will be released as a part of this massive "Pokemon GO" update.

Niantic didn't reveal all the reported information in a single go during their announcement. However, they did drop strong hints about the release of new animation and items. "When you encounter Pokemon in the wild, don't be surprised if they react in new ways as you're trying to catch them," they revealed earlier today.
