Pokemon GO Celebrating Easter

The official Pokémon GO blog has outlined their new Easter event that is taking place from today until Thursday, April 20th. Check out the full details below regarding the fun-filled event:

Lace up your walking shoes and get ready to put a spring in your step—the Pokémon GO Eggstravaganza is nearly here! From 1:00 P.M. PDT on April 13 to 1:00 P.M. PDT on April 20, 2017, a greater variety of Pokémon can now be found in 2 km Eggs, so get cracking and see what you find! Your Egg-venture doesn’t stop there, though—you’ll also earn more Candy for every Egg you hatch!

Throughout this Eggstravaganza, you’ll also level up even faster with double XP! Combine this Egg-cellent bonus with a Lucky Egg, and you’ll earn four times the XP you normally would. To make this Eggstravaganza even sweeter, Lucky Eggs will be 50% off in the in-game shop!

I was going to say “Egg-cellent” but I see it’s already used above…. I will have to figure out another egg-centric pun some other time.

POKEMON GO – TRAINERS CAUGHT OVER 589 MILLION MAGIKARP

Pokemon Go players caught over 589 Million Magikarp during the gams first water-themed event. Players who logged in enjoyed a healthy number of water based Pokemon and it looks as though Magikarp was in high demand. I only was able to catch a couple of Marikarp myself, I did catch a number of new water-type Pokemon and I am excited for more events like this in the future.

How many Magikarp did you catch?

Pokemon GO Now on Apple iWatch

Don’t look now, but the immensely popular Pokemon GO is now available on the Apple iWatch. Players who own the watch will be able to do a number of key features by downloading the app, so here’s a quick recap on what you can do:

Log each play session as a workout, with gameplay counting toward personal Activity rings
Receive notifications about nearby Pokémon
Count distance toward hatching Pokémon Eggs and receiving Candy with your Buddy Pokémon
Receive notifications about PokéStops nearby and collect items from them
Receive notifications when Eggs hatch and medals are awarded

It seems like Pokemon GO is a natural fit for the device and we are eager to see what you guys think about having the game on your wrist.

More Pokemon Added to Pokemon GO

Good news Pokemon GO players; more cute creatures have been added to the immensely popular mobile game! Beginning today, players will have the opportunity to add Togepi, Pichu and select Pokémon originally discovered in the Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver video games to their Pokémon GO Pokédex. Check out the full rundown below and get ready to catch more Pokemon!

Here is what they had to say:

“As we race toward 2017, we can’t help but feel grateful for the support and reaction the Pokémon GO community has given us, and we’re delighted to start rolling out select Pokémon for them to hatch,” said Kei Kawai, director of product at Niantic, Inc. “We’re also looking forward to celebrating the season with our community by introducing a Pikachu wearing a festive hat, providing Trainers the opportunity to get out and explore their neighborhoods with friends and family as they gather for the holidays.”

“Fans around the world fell in love with Pokémon GO for the opportunity to encounter Pokémon—beloved pop-culture and gaming icons for 20 years—in the real world. Matched with the innovative technology and development of the mobile game by Niantic, hundreds of millions of players have filled their Pokédexes with over 100 available Pokémon in Pokémon GO while exploring the world around them,” said J.C. Smith, senior director of consumer marketing at The Pokémon Company International. “The opportunity to hatch select Pokémon originally discovered in the Johto region is just the beginning of how more Pokémon will be added to the game for Trainers to continue their Pokémon GO adventures.”

I must say I love the newest changes in the title and cannot wait until we can trade as well. We fully expect Pokemon GO to continue to be very popular well into 2017. Enjoy.

Halloween Event Propels Pokemon GO To Top Grossing Mobile Game

Once again, Pokemon Go sits atop the top grossing games list on the iOS charts. The Halloween event most likely has given the popular title the boost so I am certain Niantic is taking notice. Last week, the game had fallen as low as number ten. With the additions coming to Pokemon GO, we can see this trend continuing for the near future.

More as it develops.

Pokemon GO Back on Top

unnamed

Pokemon Go is now back on top in the U.S. top grossing charts on iOS. It looks as though the “fad” is back and I cannot wait to see what Pokemon GO will bring to us in the future. With the promise of trading, more gyms/Pokecenters, it looks like Pokemon GO will have a bright future ahead of it. I still log into my game from time to time but I think I may try and focus back up and level my character. With Niantic providing regular updates it seems to have kept users interested in the application and has once again captured players money and attention…

Pokemon GO Breaking Guinness World Records

The official Guinness World Records site has reported that Pokemon GO has broken 5 records. They are “Most revenue grossed by a mobile game in its first month”, “Most downloaded mobile game in its first month”, “Most international charts topped simultaneously for a mobile game in its first month (downloads)”, “Most international charts topped simultaneously for a mobile game in its first month (revenue)” and “Fastest time to gross $100 million by a mobile game”. The site says the records were confirmed after “consulting the kings of digital data SuperData”.

The game is also said to be on track to earn over 1 BILLION (yes, with a “B”) by the end of 2016.

Pokemon GO Now Available in Brazil

The immensely popular Pokemon GO game is now available in Brazil. The game has been a long time coming to the country, so it will be sweet to see Pokemon GO head straight to #1 there as well. I have been having a decent time with the game although I need to get “back into it” as I have took a break from hunting down Pokemon (I needed to load up on Pokeballs and I refuse to pay just yet)..

In other Pokemon Go news, the game has apparently made over 160 MILLION in revenue. Players could buy in game items with real money and apparently everyone is doing so.

Gotta catch em all I guess.

Pokemon GO Plus Delayed Until September

PokemonGoPlus-e1466115992508

The Pokemon Go Plus accessory, a separate device that enhances the gaming experience for Pokemon Go, has been delayed until September. The device is another way for Nintendo to profit from the game’s runaway success and no reason was given for the delay of the accessory. The Pokemon Go Plus accessory will no doubt send the gaming public into a swirl and I am certain this thing is going to sell like hotcakes when it’s finally released.
