Snivy Pokemon GO: First Look at the Generation V Starter

Snivy Pokemon GO has been teased as among the first Unova region Pokemon to be added to the game.

The Unova Unveiling Event is the final week of the Ultra Bonus, and will run from Sept. 16-23. The event will feature the first chance to catch Pokemon from the Unova region, originally appearing in the Black/White Versions of the mainline games. Officially, only Lillipup, Patrat and Klink had been officially announced (in Shiny form no less) for the introduction of Unova Pokemon.

Unova Pokemon were from Pokemon Black and White, part of Generation V.

Like previous generational introductions, it seems we'll also be getting our first taste of Unova with the three starters: Snivy, Oshawott and Tepig. The starters will likely be normal spawns like previous starter Pokemon.

Snivy is the Grass starter Pokemon from Unova. It evolves into Servine and then into Serperior. In the mainline games, the family's Hidden Ability Contrary inverts all stat changes, allowing them to use moves like Leaf Storm with startling efficiency.

We will likely see more teasers of the starters as Niantic unveils the rest of our first wave of Unova Pokemon.
