There are exciting things on the horizon for us Pokémon GO players, with developer Niantic revealing some familiar faces are making their way to the mobile title soon. In a post on its official blog, it was revealed some classic Kanto monsters will be making their way to the ranks, albeit in their Alolan form. Here's the official post from Niantic:

Trainers,

Sunny days are ahead! Whether your forecast calls for rain or shine, we’re celebrating all around the world by introducing some special Pokémon from the tropical Alola region to Pokémon GO.
