Rumour: Pokemon Go to Raise Level Cap and Add Gen 4 Pokemon

Go Fest 2 Was Also Hinted at for Pokemon Go Players

A Pokemon Go player by the Twitter handle of PokemonDoctorYT just happened to be sharing a flight with Niantic’s CEO John Hanke, who told him some upcoming features and events for the game.

The conversation was retweeted and broken down by another Pokemon Go player, Reversal. In his breakdown, Reversal revealed that Niantic will be raising the level cap for Pokemon Go at some point in the future, that the next generation of Pokemon (generation 4) will be added, and that a Player Versus Players (PvP) system is in the works as well.

It comes as no surprise that the fourth generation of Pokemon was going to be added to Pokemon Go, as I would imagine every generation of Pokemon will find its way onto the mobile game, but a PvP system has been in the works for a while now, ever since the game’s release, and I’m happy to hear it’s finally getting some attention.

Hanke (Niantic’s CEO) also mentioned to PokemonDoctorYT that they were working on making the game’s map more raid friendly, allowing players to request PokeStops at some point in the future, some new items in the works, and more action taken against spoofers (players who cheat to get different types of Pokemon, or to give themselves an unfair advantage), with Niantic already banning plenty of them from their game.

As there has yet to be an official confirmation from Niantic, we’re taking all the information with a pinch of salt, and will update this article should the information be false.
