How are there Pokedex entries when I have not encountered the Pokemon?

When I updated Pokemon Go to the latest version, Version 0.41.2, I noticed my Pokedex contained additional entries that were not there before.

How quickly does a Pokémon lose motivation?

With the new gym update, Pokémon have a motivation meter while defending a gym. This meter degrades over time, which makes it easier to remove that Pokémon from its defending position. Motivation can be reduced quicker when it loses a fight defending the gym, but can also be replenished using berries. However, if a Pokémon […]

Why does the “evolve” button sometimes show only a silhouette?

After a recent update, I’ve noticed that the “evolve” button sometimes shows a miniature image of the next evolution of the Pokémon instead of just a silhouette. I’d assumed this was based on whether I’d caught the next evolution of the Pokémon. However, that appears to be wrong, as several Pokémon that I already have […]
