Mewtwo and Pokemon GO’s newest secret weapon

Mewtwo and Pokemon GO’s newest secret weapon

As we wait for Halloween to roll up in Pokemon GO, Niantic's sprung a Solstice Event on us - and a new item.

At the same time, it's nearly time for everyone to have access to the master monster Mewtwo.

Pokemon GO event update: Equinox, time to start over!

Starting soon is the next Pokemon GO event, set right on top of the Summer Equinox. This event will allow users to jump in and start their game over again from the start, rewarding them for doing so.

Pokemon GO just committed a cardinal sin, so I quit

Pokemon GO just committed a cardinal sin, so I quit

Niantic just initiated a feature in Pokemon GO which has made me feel like it's time to quit the game. I've played since before day one - I was an early tester, and I've played almost non-stop since that time. Now I think it's time to throw in the towel. Not because of Raid Battles, and not because of the ever-changing gym. Not even because I've completely run out of cash and am now homeless because of the game (though that bit's a big blown out of proportion.)

Our Pokemon RAID Battle schedule is about to get shook up by the best holiday of the whole year - HALLOWEEN! According to our (anonymous) source - not that it wasn't already expected - like last year, Niantic will place a super-spooky Pokemon GO event on Halloween. Unlike last year, we've also got Raid Boss Battles to deal with. How will the two collide, and what'll it mean for Gengar?

Pokemon GO down just as new Legendary raids appear!

Pokemon GO down just as new Legendary raids appear!

This isn't the first time this has happened, but it's the first time in a LONG time that it's happened - these sort of problems seem to have largely been put in the past as Pokemon GO's userbase evens out to levels Niantic can handle.

Pokemon GO’s Mewtwo Raid has ONE tip you MUST know

Pokemon GO's big raid boss Mewtwo was released on a limited basis earlier this month and will come again soon - and there's ONE tip that's more important than all others. This is a Pokemon that's more powerful than all other Pokemon in the game thus far. Mewtwo's ability to destroy a Pokemon in a single hit is very, very real - but only if that one Pokemon doesn't know all the different moves one can execute during a Raid Battle.

Pokemon GO summer hype had another kick in the pants today as our countdown to Mewtwo hit start.
