These packs will bring back one of the favorite characters of the fans as well. The newly inducted characters include Pokémon known as Kubfu. In the first expansion, one of his evolved forms will be revealed and in the second another all-new evolved form is going to be released.
Apart from this character, we’ll be getting a lot of Pokémon which were not included in the game previously. These are a total of 200 Pokémon. This many Pokémon inducted seems to be an insane addition. Apart from all these details, the game itself is a pretty awesome one.
