Although Niantic had previously suggested that players would get the chance to catch rare monsters at the upcoming Pokemon Go Fest, the developer has now revealed that those Pokemon will be legendaries.
Pokemon GO nails the feeling of being a Pokemon trainer in many ways. You have to walk around to get Pokemon, you have a partner Pokemon travel with you, there are other trainers in the world, etc. However, the one major way it’s not like a regular Pokemon game or like the Pokemon anime is that the Gym Battles don’t resemble anything like their counterparts.
Pokémon Go was all the rage not too long ago, with its popularity rapidly decreasing once the craze ran its course. That’s not to say that the game is dead, however, just that it’s not even half as popular as it was in its heyday not too long ago. However, developer Niantic are looking to bring back a host of old players, and give something back to those who’ve remained loyal to the game, with a number of new features scheduled to be released.
Pokemon GO continues to grow, and with the addition of Johto Pokemon, it doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon. Now though, in light of the arrival of Christmas and New Year’s, Niantic is getting even more into the holiday spirit with some special bonuses for Pokemon GO players.
After several new Pokemon were released into Pokemon Go earlier this year, developer Niantic has revealed that some of the creatures from the Johto region are now available to hatch from eggs as well as be caught in the wild. Specifically, both Togepi and Pichu can be hatched from eggs, in addition to a special edition version of Pikachu that is wearing a Christmas-themed hat. This special Pokemon will only be available until December 29.
According to a post on the official Pokémon Company website, gamers are now discovering the unique Pokemon Ditto in the Pokémon GO mobile game for the first time. According to the website, Ditto is a Pokemon unlike any other, with its curiously blobby shape and its ability to mimic the look and abilities of other Pokemon.”
While Pokemon Go may have lost some of the initial hype that it had when it first released, it still continues to be played by millions of people around the world. To help keep those legions of users happy, Niantic is set to make life slightly easier for them with a brand new update.
Although Pokemon Go has become one of the most popular games of all time since its release several weeks ago, there are still several issues that have frustrated players. One particularly irksome problem was the fact that team leaders didn’t seem to have any role to play. However, that is set to change with the latest update, with developer Niantic revealing that the team leaders will have a dedicated role from now on.
It seems not everyone in the world likes or wants to catch Pokemon. Well, there is one country in the world that cannot enjoy a popular mobile app. According to a report by Digital Spy, Pokémon Go has been banned in another country due to “security concerns.” The popular augmented reality mobile app was banned by the High Council of Virtual Spaces out of “security concerns.”
Niantic has released a new update for Pokemon GO, and it’s introduced a number of new changes for the popular mobile game (via Nintendo Insider). Update 0.31.0 is available now for the augmented reality app, and introduces new changes, giving gamers a way to re-customize their Trainer avatars. In addition, they can adjust their battle move damage values for specific Pokemon. Also, the update has improved memory issues and addresses a number of a big issues.
During the South Park 20th Anniversary special at San Diego Comic Con, a fan asked co-creator Trey Parker about whether the upcoming season would spoof the now mega popular Pokemon GO. Parker had a very interesting reply:
Pokemon Go has just launched in Japan alongside a massive McDonald’s sponsorship deal but millions of players around the world are still trying to get as much information about the game – specifically about the legendary Pokemon such as Mewtwo, Mew, and the legendary birds.
