Pokemon Go is getting flooded with a ton of new Water-Type Pokemon for Christmas.
Over 20 new Pokemon are being added to Pokemon Go as part of the next wave of "Gen 3" Pokemon. Dataminers discovered the image assets for the new Pokemon on Pokemon Go's servers along with a news bulletin (shown below) for when the new Pokemon go live.
The new Pokemon are all either Water-Type or Ice-Type Pokemon and include fan favorites like Ludicolo and Milotic. The full list of new Pokemon included in the next wave are:
Shiny versions of all the Pokemon seen above were also added to Pokemon Go's servers. Developers have added Shiny versions of all the "Gen 3" Pokemon to the game's servers, even though players can only catch shiny versions of Absol, Mawile, and the "Gen 3" Ghost-Type Pokemon.

In addition to the 20 new "Gen 3" Pokemon, image assets for Delibird were also discovered, seemingly confirming the pending arrival of the holiday-themed Ice-Type Pokemon.
As Pokemon Go pushed a new update yesterday, we're expecting that these new Pokemon could officially be added to the game as soon as today. Pokemon Go has yet to make an announcement about its upcoming holiday event, but we should hear news about those plans in the next day or so too.
The new update will also contain a new AR mode that allows players to "sneak up" on a Pokemon in order to catch it.
