Kyogre Is Almost Definitely Coming To ‘Pokémon GO’ Soon

Kyogre.

A new Pokémon made its way into the code for Pokémon GO recently — dataminers at Silph Road noticed that assets for Kyogre were just added to the game server, clearing the way for the Legendary Water-type to make its way into the game soon. Groudon is the Legendary Pokémon to catch in the game right now, but that Dinosaur-like monstrosity is only around until January 15. Since the game is still loading us up with Legendaries one after the other, it seems likely that Kyogre is next up.

There’s also been some other evidence circumstantial and otherwise that we’ll be getting Kyogre in-game soon. We saw the creature in the promotional image for the recent Water and Ice-type event below, despite the fact that that event is now over. It would also just make sense to release Kyogre after Groudon: Groudon is the mascot of Pokémon Ruby, and Kyogre is the mascot of Pokémon Sapphire. The two have come into mythological conflict as manifestations of land and ocean, and they make a solid introduction to the Gen-3 Legendary suite. I suppose it wouldn’t have to be the next Legendary Pokémon on offer, but at this point it’s looking pretty likely.

That means you’ll want to be training up your Electric-types to attack Kyogre’s straight Water-typing: players with Zapdos or Raikou are bound to have an easier time putting up a solid offensive against Kyogre. Kyogre will be a fine prize for those that manage to catch it, as well: like Groudon, it comes along with a max CP of 4074, making it one of the strongest creatures in the game by raw stats, with only the quixotic Slaking coming in higher when it comes to straight CP. It also has a strong attack stat, which is always what you want to see in a meta dominated by Raids where the time limit is as big a consideration as the opposing Pokémon.

Check back in on the 15th for the next update, as I doubt that Niantic will be letting us know what’s up with Kyogre until it actually landed in the game. There was a brief period without Legendary Pokémon in the hours before Groudon was released, and it’s not impossible that we’ll see something similar with Kyogre as well.
