For those that still play the Pokémon Go, we have seen several cool updates, we haven’t seen the trading or the battle each other as they had promised from this game but I believe the game may get better, I hope is sooner than later. During the weekend Niantics did a small tweak to our PokeDex, something that many of us would love and many would hate. The Pokedex was updated to show 8-bit art from each Pokémon. Now this is not the old 8-bit images we remember, these are created to show 4K definition, so the quality is awesome! This does not only change the Pokedex but also the nearby Pokémon that we see in the bottom right side of the screen. What do you think of this update? Do you love it or hate it? I personally like it, remind me of my first Pokémon game ever played, which for me was Pokémon Silver in the original Game Boy, what about you?

For all those that are interested in playing a retro style game from this cool show, let me tell you that Indie Game Developer BonusXP has created a nice game for Stranger Things. The game looks really nice and is free, not In-App Purchases, really all free. This is available for iOS and Android. I think the game is worth playing, more because as noted its free!
UPDATE: So it seems like legendary Pokémon won't be that easy to spawn. I forgot to mention that some Challenges have to be completed in order to help those awesome bird to spawn. We all people at the event and the rest of us that couldn't go have to work together to catch as many Pokémon as possible to allow them legendary Pokémon to appear. There is no specific amount on how many Pokémon we have to catch, but once they spawn at Chicago Event, them they will start spawning elsewhere, so stop reading and get to cath'm all!
On July 20th, so 2 days ago, Pokémon Go had a new announcement, Legendary Pokémon are coming to Pokémon Go. These legendary Pokémon will spawn in July 22 so that is TODAY! The Pokemon that we will be able to see are the 3 Legendary birds from Kanto Region, Articuno, Moltress and Zapdos. But they are not the only ones, as we know we have 2nd Generation Pokemon in the game so besides those 3 birds we will also have Lugia and Ho-Oh.
These legendary Pokemon will be available at Raids, so I am assuming they will be the Tier 5 raids. Just as shown in the first preview when people fought Mewtwo, once the raid is over and the Pokemon is defeated, everyone will have a chance to capture the Pokemon. One thing you will not be able to do with your Legendary Pokemon is leave it at a Gym as those Pokemon will have to stay with its trainer.
If you watch the full video above you will see some cool details, I wish the game was VR like the way the video shows it. The video is 2:39 minutes long, it shows how the people fight in Gyms and how they feed treats to their Pokemon guarding gyms to continue winning. Then we see a raid alert and we see the 5 birds. Once the fights starts you will have a timer as other raids so better be quick. At the end of the video we see Pikachu beating Lugia and everyone gets the message that it has been captured. Then the camera zooms out over earth and we see….Mewtwo!
After some days waiting and news circling around about the new enhanced Gyms, the new update has come out and well I can say I like it but there are some things I am not a fan of. The new alerts when there is a new Raid is cool, we can be walking in an area and get alerted of this Raid and we can walk towards that gym. There are 5 tiers of Raids with Pink Eggs the Level one Tier. Each tier will hold a certain Pokemon to be defeated, and of course as a higher Tier the tougher the Pokemon will be, the Pokemon that you can encounter will be different by Tier, they can range from Magikarp, Bayleef, Magmar, Arcanine, Charizard and Tyranitar, and more of course. Another addition to the Gyms that I like is the Poke-Stop spinner on top, I read that this was added for those that have less Pokestops in the area, so if you have a few Gyms you can head to them and spin the image above them and get free items.
How you defeat the Pokemon in the Raid is the same as a normal Gym battle, use a Pokemon that is strong against certain type of other Pokemon and done. When the Raid is completed you get a chance to capture that Pokemon. Tier 5 is what is kind of unknown right now, so far a list Pokemon has been released for Tier 1-4 but for Tier 5 people are speculating that this can be left alone for Ultra Rare Pokemon, like Mewtwo as seen in the promo video. Now what I don’t like personally is the level cap to start a Raid, Level 35. I mean if there are 5 Tiers (4 open at the moment) why make the level requirement so high? I am currently on level 21 only because I stopped playing due to the issues with the game. Looks like I have to catch up to enjoy the raids.
I think there are still things to be updated like Trading and a bit more enhancement to the game. I know those will come sooner than later, for the meantime lets enjoy what we have and have fun!
Is about to be a year since Pokémon Go launched, remember how it was said in that one E3 last year that the game was going to be launch in a week, everyone went nuts knowing the game they had been waiting for so long it was about to be launched. Several days later the game was launched in specific locations first, then it spread to everyone else. I remember when we first saw the launch video, trading, capturing Pokémon in the wild, battles, gyms and all that stuff, only to be received by an app that felt half way made. Well as time has passed we have seen new updates come to the game, new Pokémon from Gen 2, and more recently new events that give players more XP, candy and ability to capture specific kind of Pokémon on an specific date for a short period of time.
Well now we have heard that Pokémon Go since is closing to the year mark, will be having more special events, a couple of them Real-Live Events. Starting next week, we will be having what is called the Solstice Event, which will run next June the 13th, this even will allow you to capture more Fire and Ice Pokémon along with XP Bonus and discounted Lucky Eggs. As for the Real-Live Event, this will kick off on July 22nd, the Pokémon Go Fest Chicago will take place in…. Chicago. The tickets will go on sale June 19th, no pricing has been made available and no actual information on what is going to happen at the event. Other Real-Live events are planned to happen in Europe between July and September while in Japan will get an event called “Pikachu Outbreak” I am guessing by the name there will be a Pikachu heaven! I hope that with these new events they give us news soon about what is to be of the game, new Gym features, trades, and raids.

Many Pokemon Go players have been waiting since launch day to get their hands in awesome Pokemon. We have spent hours walking around, others “flying” and others cheating doing all possible to get their hands on every single Pokemon out in the wild. We wanted more rare Pokemon, the first one we got that made many of us happy was Ditto! We have been waiting for more and more rare Pokemon, to be exact Legendary Pokemon. Recently at the 21st Webby Award, we were given a hint, or what we think it may be a hint for Legendary Pokemon. The marketing product lead Bhargava said “This Summer will be Legendary”, this is what made many y people think we are weeks away from seeing Lengedary Pokemon spawn near us.
What do you think of this? It was not a statement it was a simple sentence said that has made people think it will be happening soon. We have been waiting since we saw the first Articuno, which was taken away pretty soon. I do hope this happens soon, we have waited long enough and this summer is the time to Catch’em All!!
Hello Pokemon Go Trainers, Niantics has a new Pokemon Go event that will start on May 18th and will run until May 25th. This event will consist on capturing Rock Pokemon and the Fossil kinds as well. So if you need some Omanyte, Kabuto, Aerodactyl, Onix and other rock type Pokemon, this event is what you were waiting for. But that is not all, Pokestops will provide extra items as well as the buddy Pokemon will require less steps in order to obtain more candy.
