Who are the Pokémon Go Gen 3 starters?

Just like Gen 1 had Bulbasaur, Squirtle, and Charmander, and Gen 2 had Chikorita, Cyndaquil, and Totodile, Gen 3 has a set of Grass-, Fire-, and Water-type starters all its own. Gen 2 didn't make any special use of its starters, aside from making them characteristically hard to catch and keeping them out of Pokémon Eggs for extended periods of time. It's likely Gen 3 won't either. Still, if the starters hold a special place in your heart, here's a reminder of who they are in Gen 3:

Gen 3 Grass-type starter Pokémon and evolutions

  • Treecko: Grass — 923
  • Grovyle: Grass — 1508
  • Sceptile: Grass — 2584

Gen 3 Fire-type starter Pokémon and evolutions

  • Torchic: Fire — 959
  • Combusken: Fire / Fighting — 1472
  • Blaziken: Fire / Fighting — 2631

Gen 3 Water-type starter Pokémon and evolutions

  • Mudkip: Water — 981
  • Marshtomp: Water / Ground — 1617
  • Swampert: Water / Ground — 2815

Who are the Legendary Pokémon in Gen 3?

Legendary Pokémon are significantly boosted in Gen 3 with a whopping eight new arrivals — almost as many as in Gen 1 and Gen 2 combined. There are a couple of new Mythicals as well.

Legendary Titans

Where Gen 1 had Legendary Birds and Gen 2 had Legendary Beasts, Gen 3 has Legendary Titans. Unlike previous generations, the Titans aren't based on the typical red/fire, yellow/electric, blue/water or ice formula. With Gen 3, we get some rock and some steel. Also, like Gen 1, the Legendary Titan's master doesn't show up until the next generation — in this case, Regigigas in Gen 4.

  • Regirock: Rock — 3087
  • Regice: Ice — 3087
  • Registeel: Steel — 2261

Eon Duo

"Eon Duo" is a term applied to a pair of powerful psychic dragons — the female Latias and male Latios.

  • Latias: Dragon / Psychic — 3377
  • Latios: Dragon / Psychic — 3644

Weather Trio

The Weather Trio represent the hydrosphere, the lithosphere, and the atmosphere, and were the icons of the original Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald games.

  • Kyogre: Water — 4874
  • Groudon: Ground — 4874
  • Rayquaza: Dragon / Flying — 4354

Jirachi

Jirachi is a Steel- and Psychic-type Pokémon. Since we haven't seen Gen 1's Mew or Gen 2's Celebi yet, Jirachi is likely still a long way off.

Deoxys

The mythical Psychic-type Pokémon, Deoxys, has additional forms each of which focus on a different stat. (Speed isn't currently implemented in Pokémon Go, though Stamina is, so it'll be interesting to see how it's all implemented.)

  • Normal Form
  • Attack Form
  • Defense Form
  • Speed Form

Who are the new Dragonite, Tyranitar, Blissey, and Snorlax of Pokémon Go Gen 3?

When Pokémon Go Gen 2 debuted, Tyranitar was seen as the new Dragonite and Blissey as the new Snorlax. Gen 3 likewise brings some new super-powered Pokémon to the gaming table.

Slaking

With a potential CP that soars over 5000 — FIVE THOUSAND — even though Slaking doesn't have the stamina of Blissey or Snorlax, it ranks just below the latter. Pokémon Go will have to do something to balance (if not outright nerf) Slaking open arrival, but it could still be among the most formidable Pokémon in the game.

  • Slakoth: Normal — 942
  • Vigoroth: Normal — 1896
  • Slaking: Normal — 5441

Metagross

Nothing is going to touch Tyranitar for generations to come, but Metagross and it's Psychic- and Steel-typing is going to significantly round things out.

  • Beldum: Steel / Psychic — 843
  • Metang: Steel / Psychic — 1570
  • Metagross: Steel / Psychic — 3644

Salamence

By contrast, Salamence will absolutely be the new Dragonite. Also a Dragon- and Flying-type, it does a little more damage but is a little less durable. We'll just have to see where the movesets land.

  • Bagon: Dragon — 1053
  • Shelgon: Dragon — 1958
  • Salamence: Dragon / Flying — 3532

Any Pokémon like Unown in Generation 3?

There are a couple of Pokémon in Gen 3 that have multiple forms, though none to the extent of Unown. One of them in Mythical, the other... cloudy. Speaking of Unown, it gets some additional forms in Gen 3 as well.

Unown

Everyone's favorite alphabet-shaped, Psychic-type Pokémon gets into punctuation in Gen 3.

  • Question Mark
  • Exclamation Point

Castform

Normal-type? Fire-type? Water-type? Ice-type? With Castform, it's appearance and even typing varies based on the weather. (Weather isn't currently implemented into Pokémon Go either but has been rumored for a while.)

  • Normal
  • Sunny
  • Rainy
  • Snowy

Are there any new evolutions for existing Pokémon in Gen 3?

Sadly, no. Gen 3 is pretty much its own thing. Gen 4, though will introduce several new evolutions for Gen 1 and Gen 2 Pokémon alike.

What about babies? Any new Pokémon babies in Gen 3?

Because babies, right? You don't have to prepare for them because they'll be new pre-evolutions, not post-evolutions. But, in case you're curious, here are the new Gen 3 babies:

  • Azurill (baby Marill)
  • Wynaut (baby Wobuffet)

What do you want to see in Pokémon Go Gen 3 and Gen 4?

How Pokémon Go deals with Rhydon — already a 3000+ CP 'mon — evolving into Rhyperior is going to be interesting, isn't it? If you have any idea, or any questions about Gen 3 or Gen 4 in general, drop 'em in the comments below!
