It is not yet confirmed how long the promotion will last.
This promotion is perfect considering recent changes to the game. Not only are Super Incubators on sale for a limited time which let you hatch Eggs faster, but Niantic released 23 additional Pokemon from generation three into the game. Here’s a list of the Pokemon confirmed to be in the game thanks to the photo included in the announcement post:
That’s just 15 confirmed Pokemon so far, but users on The Silph Road subreddit theorize that since the photo takes place in the desert, then the other Pokemon should be ones that are found in the desert regions of the gen three games (Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald). They also included Pokemon revived from fossils found in the deserts. Here are the eight Pokemon theorized to appear in the game:
We will update the list once we get proof of the existence of the above Pokemon. Let us know in the comment section below if you caught the above Pokemon.
