Pokemon Go trading, PvP coming soon, gym battles to follow

Pokemon Go trading, PvP coming soon, gym battles to follow

There’s a price to pay for success, especially when said success is the worldwide phenomenon known as Pokemon GO. Although expected to be popular, the “semi” augmented reality game took the world by storm, despite its already staggered release, that developers Niantic Labs was caught unprepared. Add to that the dozens of hacks that tried to game the system and Niantic ended up spending most of its time putting out fires rather than working on some of the most requested game features. The good news is that two or three of those are confirmed to be coming really soon, including trading monsters, battling other players, and doing gym battles.

Pokemon GO Valentines Day event: next Gen 2 release revealed in APK mine

Pokemon GO Valentines Day event: next Gen 2 release revealed in APK mine

With this newest update to Pokemon GO for Valentine's Day, Niantic has made a bunch of updates to the code lending hints about the future. This is not uncommon - each time a new update of Pokemon GO is released, the code changes anywhere from a very tiny amount to massively - optimizations are usually the reason it happens. This week, however, we've got a glimpse into the future - Generation 2, aka Gen 2, is on the horizon!

Pokemon GO must get permit to put monsters in Milwaukee parks

Pokemon GO must get permit to put monsters in Milwaukee parks

The Milwaukee County Board has approved a new ordinance that will require Niantic — and other companies like it — to get a permit before involving the county’s parks in their games. This means, as of this year, Pokemon GO monsters can only be located in Milwaukee public parks if the appropriate permit is acquired, settling what has thus far been a long and drawn out squabble between the city and the game’s maker.

Pokemon GO Valentines Day event update: Porygon, Lickitung, Candy

Pokemon GO Valentines Day event update: Porygon, Lickitung, Candy

Earlier today the Pokemon GO event for Valentine's Day began, bringing double candy, halfsies on Buddy walking distance, and special event surprises too. Niantic was purposely vague about which Pokemon they'd be making more common in this update, suggesting that it was "Pink" Pokemon that'd be more likely to appear than normal. We've been tracking the spawns since the event was turned on, and there are some oddities!

Pokemon GO Valentine’s Day event details plus expanded Gen 2 news

As Valentine's Day draws ever nearer, the potential for Pokemon Go's Gen 2 update grows ever riper. One mighty Gen 2 update has the potential to be as much of a change to the platform as Gold/Silver were to the original series. Clues appeared in the most recent update to the game's APK file for Android pointing to a new set of Johto updates. This collection added to the already significant backlog of not-quite-published bit of code. UPDATE: The Valentine's Day event is official!*

Pokemon GO Update: time to start all over again

Pokemon GO Update: time to start all over again

Pokemon GO has reached a point at which reading news, checking Reddit, and waiting for Valentine's Day (or whatever other event is next) has gotten old. Niantic's lack of a significant update is a clear message to hardcore users. That message is, as the ODB might have said, "Niantic is for the children." In other words, a large amount of players don't play because of software updates or additions to the game, they play because they're kids and don't know the difference.

Pokemon Cobalt and Amethyst Minecraft map is all sorts of cool

Pokemon Cobalt and Amethyst Minecraft map is all sorts of cool

While Pokemon has long been a craze, even before things went crazy when Pokemon GO hit mainstream media. As such, there has been no shortage of fan-made games and content, many of which have sadly been taken down by the dreaded DMCA notice. Pokemon Cobalt and Amethyst, however, deserves a special honor. It's not a mere recreation of existing games and monsters but an almost completely new spin. But even more impressive is the fact that it all happens inside a vanilla Minecraft map.

Pokemon Go Valentine’s Day Update and big news event for February

While Reddit chatter dwindles in the main Pokemon GO forums, diehard fans badger Niantic for clues on the next big update. This update is tipped to come at around Valentine's Day - but the possibilities aren't quite so solid as they once were. Our anonymous source with knowledge of the subject suggests that Niantic is far less likely, now, to follow the end-of-month event schedule they'd more or less set in motion in the last several months of 2016.
