A recent data mine for the popular mobile game Pokémon Go reveals possible new evolution methods are coming.

According to known Pokémon Go dataminer Chrales, three new lure modules were added into Pokémon Go's coding. The first is the Glacial Lure Module, which “attracts Pokémon for 30 minutes, especially ones that love the cold. It can also cause some Pokémon to evolve.”

The Magnetic Lure Module has the following description: “An electronic Lure Module that attracts Pokémon for 30 minutes, especially ones that possess a magnetic field. It can also cause some Pokémon to evolve.”

Finally, the Mossy Lure Module which is “a natural Lure Module that attracts Pokémon for 30 minutes, especially ones that love mossy scents. It can also cause some Pokémon to evolve.”

While Chrales' findings didn't specify which Pokémon can evolve with these new Lure Modules, many Pokémon fans have deduced that four evolutions from the Sinnoh region will finally make their Pokémon Go debuts. They are Leafeon, Glaceon, Probopass and Magnezone.

Leafeon and Glaceon are the sixth and seventh evolutions for the Normal-type Eevee. As their names suggest, Leafeon is a Grass-type while Glaceon is the line's Ice-type. In the Pokémon games, Leafeon and Glaceon can be obtained if they level up while near a specific area in the region. Usually, an Eevee that levels up near a Moss Rock will evolve into Leafeon. Eevee that levels up near an Icy Rock will evolve into Glaceon. Similarly, if Magneton or Nosepass levels up near the Electric Rock, they evolve into Magnezone and Probopass, respectively.

It's unclear how much resources Pokémon Go trainers will need to use to evolve and receive these new Pokémon. It's likely that 100 Pokémon-specific candy and one Sinnoh Stone will be required like other Pokémon that have evolutions that debuted in Generation 4.

We will update if more information is found.
