List of 23 new Pokemon that are now appearing in Pokemon GO: Dragon and Ground edition

Trainers,

we are happy to announce that we’ve assembled the full list of the 23 new Pokemon that are now appearing in Pokemon GO. A majority of these Pokemon are commonly native to rough terrain, caves, rocky and dusty rocky biomes, hence the casual fan made name for this release is “The Rock and Ground wave“.

Update: let’s call it Rock / Ground wave, the comment section is up in arms about the Dragon / Ground wave name.

We shared our thoughts on these new Pokemon in the bottom portion of the article, so check it out to see which Pokemon are worth farming and investing Stardust. For a full list of Generation III Pokemon and our coverage of Gen III families check out this page: Generation 3.

Best Pokemon in this wave

Aggron is a very exciting addition mostly due to it’s resistances and raw power. Aggron is the strongest currently available Steel type in the game and seems like a great counter for any Ice and Fairy type. If Articuno makes a comeback, Aggron will rise triumphant. Same goes for Regice.

Flygon is interesting, although not as powerful as other Dragons currently in the game. It’s strength comes from it’s versatility and we wouldn’t be surprised to see him in raids.

Other than these two, there are some interesting additions, but nothing ground breaking:

  • Exploud has an interesting move pool, worth checking out, but lack of STAB makes it lackluster-ish.
  • “The rocks” (Lunatone and Solrock) are basically budget versions of popular Psychic types, but again, nothing too exciting.
  • Whismur is the new Pidgey
