Pokemon Go introduces XXS and XXL size ‘Mons’

It looks like Pokémon Trainers might need to add a portable scale to their kit. A new feature in Pokemon Go is the introduction of two new size variants, XXS and XXL, for certain Pokemon. While this new feature doesn’t really affect gameplay, a tiny Poochyena sounds adorable!

According to Nintendo Life, these new size variants are already available in the mobile game and currently only affect Poochyena, Mightyena, and Mawile. No one knows why these Pokemon are the only ones available in the new sizes, but it’s likely that it will be extended to others in the future. They honestly can’t include a size feature and not give us a tiny Pikachu or a mega-large Togepi.

Catching one of the new size Pokemon is completely random. Like the shiny variants, they can be found in nature. However, if you come across one, you will be immediately alerted with a new animation. This animation alerts you if what you are trying to capture is a larger or smaller version than normal.

To keep track of all the sizes of these Pokemon you catch, the Pokedex is also being updated with a new size tracker. With this, you will be able to see the largest and smallest sizes of these Pokemon that you have caught. Of course, you will also be able to see if a Pokémon is bigger or smaller, since these XXS and XXL versions are different in the app.

Players will also be notified when they break certain in-game records. Those who have caught three Pokémon of a certain type can receive a celebratory message when they catch another one that is smaller or larger than the ones they caught. Additionally, there are several new medals based on Pokémon sizes available for trainers to battle for.
