How to stop Pokemon GO push notifications

The latest version of Pokemon GO has a way to get rid of individual sorts of notifications. Earlier versions of Pokemon GO showed only a couple different sorts of Push Notifications in a list, which was sort of a bummer. If you're just viewing this game for the first time now since you quit a year ago - things have gotten better!

Shiny Pokemon odds just changed in a BIG way

Shiny Pokemon odds just changed in a BIG way

A new report on the latest Pokemon game seems to confirm the early leak about the odds of new Shiny Pokemon encounters in the near future. According to the folks at Serebii, specifically the writer Jon Hatch, it's shown that "encountering the same Pokemon in a chain increases shiny chance!" This means the odds of a Shiny version of a Pokemon get better each time you encounter a Pokemon with the same name in an unbroken line of encounters. God help you if you encounter a Ditto*.

What if Pokemon GO suddenly ended?

What if Pokemon GO suddenly ended?

What would you do if Niantic closed their doors tomorrow, and there was no more Pokemon GO? That's a question I had to ask a friend recently when they voiced concerns that Pokemon GO used to be fun, but more recently felt more like an obligation. This is the overarching issue with video games in general, but doubly so when the entirety of said game is played on servers at some remote location: After it's done, what's left?

Lucky Pokemon GO users found 2x happy accidents this morning

Lucky Pokemon GO users found 2x happy accidents this morning

Today we're looking at a variety of changes made to Pokemon GO this morning - the most interesting of which was a tiny mistake in the moves code. Those players who had Pokemon with the move "Giga Impact" could've (and in some cases did seem to) take advantage of a listed power of 9001 instead of just 200. This level of power in a single Pokemon move in Pokemon GO would, essentially, devastate any Pokemon opponent.

Giga Impact Power!

According to sources including Poke Miners, the Pokemon move "Giga Impact" had a lot more power than normal for a short period this morning. At approximately 16:53 hours on October 31 (last night), PokeMiners reported that changes had started to be made to the game's code - including moves like Giga Impact and Locked On. Giga Impact, at that time, had its power changed to 150.

At some point between then and approximately 7:24 AM this morning, another change was made, and the move Giga Impact had a listed power of 9001! That's enough power to knock out basically any Pokemon in the game in one go! The 7:24 AM update changed the power of Giga Impact to 200 instead of that whopping 9001. The image you see below shows one of the effects of the Mistaken Evolutions in the next section. This image comes from 8bitCR on The Silph Road.

Mistaken Evolutions

A few other oddities were in play for a while this week, too, fixed just this morning. One was an evolution of Bellsprout. Instead of Bellsprout's standard evolution into Weepinbell, it was reportedly evolving into Sandslash!

At the same time, reports suggest that the Pokemon Victreebel had a new evolution option - evolving into Dugtrio! It would appear that this was more of a mistaken image file situation, where a Diglett looked like a Victreebel, instead of an actual Victreebel having the ability to evolve into Dugtrio.

Shadow updates!

Another major set of Shadow Pokemon additions were made to the game's latest game files! You'll find these Pokemon listed in the image above! This could have a lot to do with the mistaken identities in evolutions above - or it could just mean we're about to get a very DARK FUTURE!
