Pokemon GO News Update: new ways to hack the game

Niantic's efforts to stop hacking of Pokemon GO seem to have gone away - at least, so seems to think the Reddit masses. As a result, several methods for mayhem have surfaced, or re-surfaced with new techniques. Players are currently able to walk around the world with a simple joystick controller on their smartphone device in Pokemon GO without hacking at all - and with only a minor threat of banning.

Pokemon Red in Minecraft faithfully recreates even the bugs

We can never really get tired of all the wild and insane things people come up with in Minecraft? Recreate a real-world city “to scale”? Go for it! Recreate a classic game? Definitely!

Pokemon GO’s Eevee evolution update and future news

Pokemon GO’s Eevee evolution update and future news

Now that Gen 2 of Pokemon GO has been released, Eevee is no longer the star of the game. Or at least that would be true if Gen 2 didn't include two more Eevee evolutions in Espeon and Umbreon - but there we have it. While more powerful Pokemon exist, and easier-to-catch Pokemon exist, there's no more pervasive Pokemon base and evolution combo that's better captured the imagination of the masses that play Pokemon GO. Part of the reason why is in the seemingly random (but not actually random) nature of Eevee's evolutionary forms.

Pokemon GO to get legendary Pokemon by end of the year

One of the biggest problems that plagued the Pokemon GO AR game after its initial hype was the lack of variety of monsters, despite the original game itself having hundreds. That was somewhat rectified when developers Niantic Labs unleashed the Generation 2 monsters last month as a Valentine’s gift to players, but there were still some missing, even from Gen 1. Those are the one-of-a-kind legendary Pokemon and, according to Niantic CEO John Hanke, those could come before 2017 ends.

Pokemon GO: Eevee evolutions and Special Items update

The most common question asked by Pokemon GO users since the dawn of the game involves Eevee. How do I evolve Eevee to get the evolution I want?

Pokemon GO tips: How to beat Blissey

Pokemon GO tips: How to beat Blissey

There's a monster named Blissey in Pokemon GO right this minute, keeping Pokemon Gyms stacked and making it near-impossible to battle. We've done some research here at SlashGear and have found a few different ways in which Blissey can be blasted with relative ease. Ease as in not impossible to battle because Blissey has such an epic amount of hit points that there's generally little that can be done before time runs out.

Inside the device, there's a way to turn the appearance of PokeStops into automatic spins of said PokeStops, thereby making attempts at finding Pokemon GO Special Items far, far simpler.
