Meet Pokemon Go's Newest Characters: Pichu & Togepi!
Pokemon Go

For those of us still walking miles every day hunting Pokemon on our smart phones, Pokemon Go has finally released two new characters! Now you can add the adorable Pichu and Togepi to your squad, along with several other second generation Pokemon.

Niantic, Pokemon Go's developer, hasn't announced specifics about how many new Pokemon will be added to the games or what other second generation Pokemon will be joining Togepi and Pichu. But we do know that they you won't find them out in the wild. Instead, you'll have to hope those eggs you pick up at Pokestops hatch into one of these cuties. Remember to incubate them by walking as much as possible. (More motivation for getting your 12,000 steps a day, TBH!)

For those of you who have let the app sit on your phone untouched for the summer, there's an incentive for you to open it up again. Beginning on December 29, a limited edition Pikachu will be available to catch. What makes him limited edition? Uh, he's wearing a Santa hat. Duh.
