Pokemon GO January APK teardown: New moves, evolution items, Gen2

The first update for Pokemon GO of the year and we've found a whole bunch of new moves for Pokemon from Gen2. This first update for the game had very little in it for the everyday user - a bit of an update for walking distance and Pokemon Eggs for Apple Watch. But for those that dug deeper - there's a bunch of fun bits and pieces that tell us about the near future of the game.

The next Pokemon GO event update could be Magikarp heavy

The next Pokemon GO event update could be Magikarp heavy

The Pokemon called Magikarp might very well be the subject of the first Pokemon GO event of April, 2017. A Silph Road user and Pokemon GO analyst by the name of S.Dangles decided earlier this week that the possibility of a Magikarp-infused event set for April Fool's Day was real. While we don't have our normal verification of consideration from our source familiar with the information, the possibilities for this next Pokemon GO event are just too intriguing to ignore.

Next Pokemon GO update may summon Legendary New Year Event

The next update to Pokemon GO may indeed be the one where Legendary Pokemon appear for the first time. Word from the underground (and our anonymous source with knowledge on the subject) suggests that considerations are being made for China's sake. After being blocked in China just this week, Niantic is seeking a way to come back with a bang (once they've got their issues sorted with China’s State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television, or "SAPPRFT".)

Pokemon GO blocked from China release, missing out on population of 1.3b

Pokemon GO blocked from China release, missing out on population of 1.3b

It looks like Pokemon GO is going to lose a large chunk of potential players, as China has put a hold on the game's release for the time being. That means Pokemon GO won't be able to tap into the country of 1.3 billion people, at least not until it addresses some of China's concerns. Given the sheer number of people in China, Pokemon GO developer Niantic may be moved to do just that.

Pokemon GO: Here’s how baby Pokemon affect egg hatch rates

Baby Pokemon recently made their way into Pokemon GO, but now it's becoming a little more clear that their addition did more than just inject the game with some cuteness. Ever since these baby Pokemon began appearing back at the start of December, players have been reporting that their evolved forms were no longer hatching from eggs. Reports of these hatch rate changes were ultimately conflicting, leading the sleuths over at The Silph Road to conduct an experience of their own and get to the bottom of this.

Tech’s 8 biggest winners of 2016

The biggest winners of the year this year really shine a light on where our priorities are as a collective unconscious. This list is not based on the "most popular stories" or "most searched topics" or anything scientific like that - instead it's based on my perception of the tech world as a reporter and a participant. It's also important to note that I consider "tech" to include technology, science, and science fiction entertainment, as well - so those that have any items to add, please, by all means speak up.
