There’s also a chance to get your hands on Shiny Patrat and Shiny Lillipup so make sure that you get your trainer hats on and catch them all.
Here is the full announcement released by Niantic:
Over three years ago, your Pokémon GO journey started with Pokémon originally discovered in the Kanto region, and you’ve gone on to encounter hundreds of Pokémon first encountered in the Johto, Hoenn, and Sinnoh regions as you’ve battled, raided, and completed research. It’s almost time to continue your journey and encounter Pokémon originally discovered in the Unova region! Get ready to meet new friends and encounter Pokémon featured in Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version, appearing in Pokémon GO later today!
Snivy, Tepig, Oshawott, Patrat, Lillipup, Purrloin, Pidove, Blitzle, and more Pokémon originally discovered in the Unova region will be appearing in the wild.
Spark has been hard at work walking and incubating Eggs for his research and has found that the following Pokémon have started hatching from Eggs!
2 km Eggs: Patrat, Lillipup, Purrloin, Pidove
5 km Eggs: Snivy, Tepig, Oshawott, Blitzle, Drilbur, Foongus
