Pokemon Go’s three new lure modules give players a targeted choice of pokemon!
Pokemon Go ain’t dead yet and Niantic is continuing to pump new content to their viral AR (augmented reality) title. This time around, we’re getting three new lure modules to attract specific types of pokemon — the Glacial Lure, Mossy Lure, and Magnetic Lure.

Glacial Lures attract certain Pokémon that love the cold.
Mossy Lures attract certain Pokémon that love to frolic in the leaves.
Magnetic Lures attract certain Pokémon with magnetic personalities. Wow! pic.twitter.com/fWgO9An91H
Just as their names suggest these modules attract certain types of pokemon:
- Glacial Lure Module — For cold-loving Pokemon (Water and Ice)
- Mossy Lure Module — For leaf-loving Pokemon (Bug, Grass, and Poison)
- Magnetic Lure Module — For electromagnetic force-loving Pokemon (Electric, Steel, and Rock)
These new modules are not just there to attract pokemon, they also give the ability to allow certain ones (like Magneton, Nosepass, and even Eevee) to evolve. The lures, for now, are available in the in-game shop but Niantic will introduce them later this season as rewards for special research tasks. To top it all off additional Sinnoh Pokemon (Niantic didn’t specify) are now available to catch in the wild and hatch from eggs.
