From the Japanese, invite-only field test:
  • There are 151 Pokemon data files in the game. All are the original Gen I Pokemon, unfortunately. Classed into normal, legendary, and mythic.
  • 232 moves, 95 of which are 'quick' moves. These include moves that are not in the game in the original RBY games e.g. Moonblast. THERE MAY BE 2 MOVES PER POKEMON (Warning: this is not directly confirmed, only implied.)
  • Someone found a dodge function. Moves may not have 100% accuracy.
  • Badges = Achievements. Includes: Walking a certain distance (Ingress Trekker), Pokedex entries, Pokemon Captures, Forts(Gyms?) defeated (Ingress Liberator?), Evolved, Hatched, Encounters, Pokestops visited(Ingress Hacker?), Unique Pokestops(Ingress Explorer), Pokeball thrown.
  • 7 "natures" have been discovered in the game. These are Stoic, Guardian, Assassin, Raider, Protector, Sentry, and Champion.
  • All Pokemon types, including Fairy, Dark, and Steel, are included in the files.
  • Evolution works by collecting "evolution shards" from wild Pokemon to get "evolution stones". May or may not be unique for each Pokemon.
  • The game keeps track of several factors like Ingress, including distance walked, eggs hatched, etc. This might affect, say, egg-hatching.
  • There will be trainer customization. Example skin. There are in total 52 items (23,328 unique combinations)
  • A variable related to the PokeNav has been found.
  • IAPs spotted include "ball", "medicine", "food" bundles and "gem" packs. There are 4 tiers.
  • Items include Pokeballs, Potions, Max Revive, 3 battle items, and 5 types of Berries (Razz, Bluk, Nanab, Pinap, Wepear). All these berries are introduced in Gen III, and they have no battle effects in the main game. Separated into 6 categories: Pokeball, Food(berries?), Medicine, Boost, Utilities, Camera.
  • The trainer level cap seems to be at 50 for now. Inventory limit is 1000 for items, and 500 for Pokemon and eggs.
  • The menu includes the Pokedex, Pokemon, and Items. Game engine is built on Unity.
  • The teams are blue, red, and yellow.
  • DAMAGE variables are included in the files. Also: "PokemonAttack baseDef indivDef PokemonDefense". CPs seem to be unique to each individual Pokemon, and higher CP means a harder catch. Most likely stands for "Combat Points".
  • A variable called "Gym Points" was found. No idea what this means.
  • Biomes (courtesy of /u/DonniesCatch) can be found, including locations like "Train Station" or "Hospital". Separate biomes seem to have different backgrounds for Pokemon encounters/gym battles. Bonus pic.
  • From the game map screenshots, there seem to be a day-night cycle.

While the leaked gameplay footage showed a simplistic UI, the data mine shows that it's probably more complicated than meets the eye. Super excited!

I guess this is so they can add generations over time, because if not, yikes.

No Dark-type Pokemon, yet the Dark-type is in. Later Pokemon will be added over time.

Guys, you know how mobile always-on games work, right?

As long as it is successfull they will 1000000% add new content to the game. So relax, it'll be the first 151 Pokémon, for now.

Anyway, #TeamRED

Sounds like they actually listened to the fans who wanted them to get rid of every subsequent generation.

It's mobile, of course there will be updates.

They'll probably sell each gen as a "pack" you can buy.

The first 151 makes sense.
Mobile games receive constant updates especially free to play ganes. Since they need something to keep people returning.


Then again this is also a beta. So putting every Pokémon on it wouldn't make sense either.


Are these the same models as Pokémon 3DS? Some look better from an artistic point of view.
Could be the same models created. They have models with millions of polygons on them. Then scale them depending on the game.

Super Mystery Dungeon also has every Pokémon on it and looks different to the other games.

I don't know. They want you to play this game forever. Selling you content isn't really the business model with this kinda game. They want you to get frustrated and buy stuff to progress and show off and compete with friends (that's why there are teams in the first place).

I mean there's nothing wrong with the original 151.

They'll probably update it with more if the game does well enough.

Obviously the game will expand with more and more Pokemon later on.

I don't expect them (and don't want them) to have all Pokemon ready day 1 anyway. It's a mobile game and all successful mobile game can last for many years with updates.

151 are the only ones most people from the 90's care about/remember, so that's not surprising.

I was sure this would be pretty successful, but after reading those details... I'm convinced this will be UUUUUGE.

EDIT: original 151 is pure genius. WTF @ salt

Gen 1 makes sense since that's what most remember, but I do hope it won't take long for the other gens to be added. I want my faves.
