Additional pocket monsters from the Unova region are heading to Pokemon Go next year, but Niantic wasn’t ready to reveal which ones just yet. For now, Trainers can prepare for Lapras, shadow Moltres, Adventure Sync Hatchathon, research, and Heatran raids. Sounds like a fantastic way to start the new year and kick off those resolutions!
