Although there has been no official date announced, the Pokemon Go Twitter strongly indicates that we'll be able to catch lucky versions of our favourite creates soon. The picture included in the tweet shows two trainers trading Pokemon. But you can see on the left phone above Pikachu's type the phrase "Lucky: 2".
These Lucky Pokemon will cost much less dust to level up, as well as have special colourful backgrounds to accompany their portrait.
Other than this, we still don't know much about them, like how we actually catch them for our collection? Do all Pokemon have a lucky version or just a selected amount? Hopefully, all of our questions will be answered by Niantic soon.
Lucky Pokemon were hidden in the background of the most recent game update on Android but this update is still to come to iOS.
Pokemon Go has been seeing something of a resurgence recently, probably due to the fact that it will be compatible with the new Pokemon Switch game. But if you don't plan on getting that game, there is still a lot of fun to be had with the much improved Pokemon Go.
