Pokemon GO APK download and what to avoid

Those in the minority in the world today unable to play Pokemon GO are searching for the app before final release. As such, today we're reporting on the only safe locations for download and loading of the game Pokemon GO. Spoiler alert: user choices are few and in-between. To avoid hackers and exploits of all sorts, users are going to need to stay away from sites they don't trust. As Tim Erlin, Senior Director of IT Security and Risk Strategy for Tripwire suggested earlier this month, "When it comes to malware, you really don't want to catch 'em all."

Today Pokemon GO server status is down: what to do

This morning Pokemon GO began seeing service disruptions in Japan - now the spread has headed toward the United States. Service disruptions have been reported throughout the United States, though this disruption seems to be affecting the East Coast most of all. We're also seeing reports galore coming from pockets of activity in California - though, given that the coast is one of two of the world's most-visited Pokemon spots, that bit isn't the least bit surprising.

Pokemon GO player hits level cap, but needed a bot to get there

With Pokemon GO developer Niantic remaining tight-lipped on a number of the game's inner workings, players have been left to postulate and discuss what could be going on behind the scenes. One of the most discussed topics seems to be Pokemon GO's level cap, with Niantic never stating outright that there's a hard cap in the game. Well, we now have an answer to that question, as one player has managed to hit the level cap and took to Reddit to share that success.

Pokemon Radar downloads: the app everyone is cheating with

Pokemon Radar downloads: the app everyone is cheating with

Cheating at Pokemon GO isn't especially difficult, as a rabble of Android and iOS developers will tell you this week. Today the quickest rising app on either app store is an app called "Poke Radar" which, as you'll soon find out, isn't what it suggests it is. It works just how it says it's supposed to, but if you're looking for a Pokemon Radar that works, you'll need to look elsewhere. Meanwhile, there's an app called "Poke Scanner" that'll do just what you want it to.

Pokemon GO server status is down, but also up

How can Pokemon GO be down, but also up at the same time? Pokemon GO is a multi-tiered system, one in which more than one level of log-on and play is included. Today users have found several problems occurring at different times. Earlier today is was a bit of down time on the main server - high latency and inability to see Pokemon and/or Gyms and PokeStops. That down time seems to be fading, while a different down situation seems to be rising up.

Pokemon GO Cheats and Tips : catch em all (almost) every time

Pokemon GO Cheats and Tips : catch em all (almost) every time

The modern equivalent to holding down arrow + B in Pokemon GO appears to have been found. Users that used to hold their down-arrow down and press B, or spam B, or any combination of buttons when their Pokeball was first tossed, should rejoice today. This "cheat" as some might call it has to do with animations. Each Pokemon has a series of animations they're capable of doing when they're face to face with a user with a Pokeball - we're looking for "Happy."

Why Nintendo deserves credit for Pokemon GO

Why Nintendo deserves credit for Pokemon GO

It should have been clear from the start that Nintendo did not create Pokemon GO. The Pokemon Company did that with Niantic, a company spun off from Google after creating the game Ingress, a game on whose engine Pokemon GO is built. I say Nintendo deserves credit not just because they helped Niantic spin off from Google, and not just because they own part of the Pokemon Company. I say Nintendo deserves credit because of their inevitable mega-growth in the very near future, due in a big way to the success of Pokemon GO.

Pokemon GO ain’t done yet, future features teased

Pokemon GO may have already peaked in the US, but that's probably because, given the rush, players have mostly squeezed out all they can from the augmented reality game. But fear not, Pokefans, because Niantic Labs still has a few more up their sleeves. Well, they better be lest they feel first hand the ire of an angry mob hungry for new content. At Comic Con 2016, the developer dropped a few hints at what's still in store for the game. At least for the immediate future.
