The Generation 2 update for Pokemon GO is rumored to hit Android and iOS devices this month. With it comes over 100 new Pokemon to collect and slot into your team.
We know you're already planning which new Pokemon you'll train up for competitive battling.

The following Pokemon are tough enough to go toe-to-toe with the top Legendaries in the game. Read on to discover the best Generation 2 Pokemon in Pokemon GO.
