While the viral hype surrounding Pokemon GO died off several months ago, millions of trainers are still passionately playing the mobile app on a daily basis. That daily number could grow, come December 12th, as Niantic announced earlier today that they would be adding new Pokemon to the game.

While rumors have been floating around for months with regard to new monsters being added, a bigger question exists around which ones will actually make it into the update. Some suggest that the second generation of monsters (i.e.: Pokemon Gold/Silver monsters) will officially be added, while others are convinced that the legendary Pokemon from the first generation will finally make an appearance.

Frankly, it makes more sense that Niantic would release the second generation of Pokemon in the upcoming update, as Legendary Pokemon should be reserved for being obtained through rare/special circumstances, such as unique Pokemon GO events. Who knows what will happen, though – Niantic has exhibited a pattern to do whatever it pleases (without communicating to the public), which has kept trainers on their toes whenever new app updates are released.

Regardless of whichever monsters do end up making it into Niantic’s big update on December 12th, you can most likely expect to see a viral resurgence of Pokemon trainers start to invade nearby parks, businesses, and other historical landmarks in hopes of catching them all (for the second time).

Which monsters would you rather see in Niantic’s December 12th update? Be sure to vote in our poll, and leave your update theories in the comments below!
