It's time to catch them all, again, after augmented reality monster catching game Pokémon Go has released its fourth generation creatures.
In a post by Niantic, it announced that some of the Pokémon from the original franchise's fourth generation – which are featured in Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum – will be introduced to the mobile game.
"Pokémon originally discovered in the Sinnoh region will be making their way to Pokémon Go in waves! So, you can look forward to discovering even more Pokémon over the next few weeks appearing in the wild, hatching from Eggs, and battling in raids," it says.
So far, around a dozen new Pokemon are available, including several region specific ones.
According to some gaming sites, Malaysian players will be able to catch a parakeet-like Pokemon Chatot, which is exclusive to the Southern hemisphere.
Niantic adds that new Pokémon features and expansions to the game are also in the works.
According to PokemonGoLive, there's also another reason to go out and play this weekend with a Community Day planned this Sunday.
For Malaysian players, the event will take place between 11am to 2pm, local time.
During the event, a rare Pokemon Beldum will be made temporarily more common, with lucky players also standing a chance to catch a special "shiny" version of it, in an alternate colour scheme.
