Malware-plagued Pokemon GO app making the rounds on Android

Malware-plagued Pokemon GO app making the rounds on Android

If you haven't heard by now, Pokemon GO is taking over the world. As the most popular mobile game in recent history, the augmented reality-based app has people out searching their neighborhoods while on the hunt for Pokemon — sometimes even finding things other than Nintendo's creatures. The game is turning out to be such a big hit that its global rollout has been slowed due to overloaded servers.

Pokemon GO rollout ‘paused’ while server woes are fixed

Pokemon GO rollout ‘paused’ while server woes are fixed

If you're located in a nation where Pokemon GO hasn't yet launched and you're chomping at the bit to get access, we've got some bad news for you: the game's international rollout has been 'paused' for now so that the game's server issues can be corrected. The news was confirmed by Niantic CEO John Hanke recently. He specifically mentioned the rollout in the UK and the Netherlands as being paused, though it appears the expansion has been stopped in some other planned destinations temporarily, as well.

Pokémon Go player finds corpse while hunting monsters

Pokémon Go player finds corpse while hunting monsters

A bunch of people are wandering around outside in search of monsters thanks to Pokémon Go, and they’ve been advised to pay attention to their surroundings while doing so. One teen took that message to heart, and while searching for a water monster she noticed something odd in the river nearby. Upon closer inspection, that something turned out to be a dead body.

Start Pokemon GO with Pikachu : how to

Start Pokemon GO with Pikachu : how to

It's time we found the first secret Pokemon in Pokemon GO - none other than Pikachu himself. Or herself. Whatever they'd like to be identified as, of course. While players are encouraged to start with Charmander, Bulbasaur, or Squirtle, they can pick Pikachu instead, provided they have a bit of patience. All they'll need to do is start walking, and walking one whole heck of a lot.

Pokemon GO release puts Nintendo stock on the rise

Pokemon GO release puts Nintendo stock on the rise

It would appear that would-be Pokemon trainers aren't the only ones who are pleased to see Pokemon GO arrive on the scene. The launch and subsequent success of the game has sent Nintendo shares up, in a time when investors were wondering if Nintendo had lost that magic touch. It hasn't exactly been a secret that Nintendo investors have wanted the company to break into the mobile games scene, and now that Pokemon GO has had a successful launch in a few regions around the world, they seem to be rewarding Nintendo with a surge in stock prices.

Pokemon GO tips and mistakes I’ve made playing

Pokemon GO tips and mistakes I’ve made playing

Before Pokemon GO launched, I had the opportunity to test the game extensively. I played it as often as I could. That was my first mistake. I've found myself diving in to the game headfirst, attempting to take my entire region by storm - which should be easy since I've only seen one other trainer here in Bismarck, North Dakota taking over Pokemon Gyms. But I found out quickly that I needed to take this experience more in stride. And I needed to stop playing Pokemon GO in the car, immediately.

Pokemon GO US release: Download it now on iOS and Android

Pokemon GO US release: Download it now on iOS and Android

The time has finally come and you can start catching 'em all. Pokemon GO is now available in the US for everyone to download and try to be a Pokemon Master. Or maybe just see whether all the fuss and hype matches up to reality. Available for free on Android and iOS, the augmented reality game will, of course, have its fair (or unfair) share of in-app purchases. But Pokemon fans might not mind in exchange for leaving out their childhood, and not-so-childhood, dreams.

Pokemon GO is a go, but only in Australia, New Zealand

Pokemon GO is a go, but only in Australia, New Zealand

That didn't take too long. While we were still busy musing the date for the launch of Pokemon GO, Niantic Labs was apparently busy actually launching it. The much awaited, but still doubted, "sort of" augmented reality game is finally rolling out to everyone. And by "everyone", we mean "everyone who happens to be located in Australia and New Zealand". That isn't completely surprising, as these two countries did get the trial run first before anyone else. It does mean that it will only be a matter of time before it becomes available to everyone in the world, legitimately or otherwise.

Pokemon Go release date breakdown

Pokemon Go release date breakdown

Today we're having a brief look at what's possible for Pokemon GO for Android and iOS, launching on a date set within the next month. Before we go too far, we'll do some myth busting: there's been an image floating around that suggests July 6th will be the date of launch, supposedly "leaked" by IGN. That's not accurate. The image shows a feature story which will appear on Snapchat - the game will not be launching tomorrow. Instead, we've got some clues that may lead to the final date.

Minecraft Pokemon FireRed is all sorts of awesome and insane

Minecraft Pokemon FireRed is all sorts of awesome and insane

We've seen all sorts of sometimes near-impossible feats of creativity produced inside the blocky world of Minecraft. The fact that the virtual world doesn't provide you with all the tools and sophisticated machinery to make those things only makes the feat even more impressive. We've seen replicas of low bit computers and even a working cellphone (with video chat even!). But none of those, perhaps, match the insanity of implementing the GameBoy Advance Pokemon Fire Red game inside Minecraft, like what Redditor Requag and company have accomplished. It's gameception, Minecraft style!

The Top 5 Pokemon Sun and Moon features I’d like to see

The Top 5 Pokemon Sun and Moon features I’d like to see

It's kind of hard to believe that Pokemon will be celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. For those of us outside of Japan, we haven't had the franchise quite that long, but if you're old enough to remember the US or European launch of Pokemon Red and Blue, Pokemon's 20th anniversary serves as a reminder that it's been a really long time since we took that first journey through the Kanto region. Pokemon Sun and Moon are being released in conjunction with the franchise's 20th anniversary, and it looks to be one of the most exciting Pokemon releases we've had in a while. With that in mind, I've come up with a list of five features I'd like to see in Pokemon Sun and Moon to make them stand out from the rest of the titles in this admittedly by-the-books series.
