The mobile app sensation Pokemon Go has had players trying to “catch ’em all” since its release in July, but Niantic CEO John Hanke has recently teased that there are still secrets yet to be discovered by players, and that new content is being added all the time.
Speaking to Gamesradar, the Niantic boss teased, “There’s one [secret] out there right now and we’ll see how that plays out over the course of the next few weeks.”
Rumors are abound over what could be hiding around the corner in Pokemon Go, especially after data miners revealed information regarding the elusive shape-shifting Pokemon, Ditto. It is not confirmed whether the recent Halloween update added new secret items. It is confirmed however, that Pokestops now give out more loot from the days first visit, and your first catch of the day awards players with extra XP and stardust. This is as well as the new daily bonus that was included as part of the last update.
Information revealed on Reddit suggests that 100 new Pokemon from Gold and Silver editions are out there somewhere, and the clue pointing towards Ditto’s existence in the game is the Pokemon command “Transform.” The Niantic boss is unwilling to shed more light on the situation, saying “I’m not giving you any more clues…”
The hunt for these rare Pokemon is already underway, and if somebody does manage to catch something special in their Pokeball, the news is sure to travel fast. For now though, we will just have to keep racking up those steps and keep hatching those eggs.
