  3. Trainers from San Francisco and Bay Area, attention! Three Unown letters have been spotted at the GDC 2019 venue in San Francisco, letters G, D & C. The spawns are expected to last from March 18 (today) to March 22nd, when the conference ends. These are the Unown letters to watch out for: G Unown D Unown C Unown Unlike previous years, when Niantic didn’t have a dedicated talk, Niantic employees are holding three lectures and even participating in one of the Workshops: When Trainers’ Eyes Meet: Creating Real-Time Combat for ‘Pokemon GO’ March 18, Rob Giusti (Software Developer, Niantic) “In July 2016, Niantic Inc. launched ‘Pokemon GO’, which grew into a worldwide phenomenon. However, it was not until December 2018 when the development team added a directly competitive, player-versus-player feature. In this session, Engineering Combat Lead Rob Giusti will discuss why Niantic chose to build this new feature at this point in the game’s lifecycle, and what decisions were made to make the feature true to its roots in the Pokemon franchise, while also creating a foundation for further game development in a live, growing game.” Basic Tools for Healthy Communities (Presented by Fair Play Alliance) March 20, Laura Warner (Game Designer, Niantic) This session consists of a set of micro-talks where several Fair Play Alliance member companies share some of their easy-to-implement tools that can make a real and measurable difference in terms of protecting your users as well as your brand. The State & Future of AR Games: Rose-Colored Glasses March 21, John Hanke (Founder and CEO, Niantic) The future of augmented reality games is about play experiences that weave in and out of your everyday life. In this Vision Track talk, John Hanke, founder and CEO of ‘Pokemon GO’ and ‘Ingress’ creator Niantic will provide a deep look at AR today, and help you imagine near and long term AR games and experiences that deliver persistent shared experiences in the real world. Game Design Workshop Day 1 and 2 March 18 and 19, Sam Villanueva (Game Designer, Niantic) and many others This intensive two-day workshop will explore the day-to-day craft of game design through hands-on activities, group discussion, analysis and critique. Attendees will immerse themselves in the iterative process of refining a game design and discover design concepts that will help them think more clearly about their designs and make better games.

  8. This Week In Pokémon GO With updates, activities, events, and more coming out every single week in Pokémon GO, we thought it was about time to take a look at this week, and how it stacks up with what we have seen in previous years. TWIPGH, or “This Week in Pokemon GO History”, is a series on GO Hub that takes a look at this calendar week from 2019 to 2016. This Week in Pokémon GO History Index Segment: Featuring: 2019 Rayquaza Raid Weekend / Legendary Lunch Hour 2018 Lugia Returns / Pokéstop submissions / Unown Event 2017 Security Update Final Notes My closing thoughts on this week of Pokémon GO In this edition of TWIPGH, we will be taking a look at Week 11 of this year, which takes into account March 11th to March 17th. Week 11 of 2019 This week of 2019 was legendary to say the least, the return of a previously beloved legendary, and with a special event featuring the current legendary. Rayquaza Raid Weekend To get Trainers out and about in the midst of Dialga Raids, Niantic decided to surprise Trainers with a Rayquaza Raid Weekend! However, many Trainers were disappointed as Niantic had to clarify that this event would not be introducing Shiny Rayquaza, a much anticipated shiny Legendary. Because of this, the only thing that event really provided was returning Rayquaza to raid battles, and nothing more. Legendary Lunch Hour This event has to have been one of the shortest in Pokémon GO’s lifetime. LLH was a one-hour experimental event during which the Legendary at the time (Dialga) would appear in every single gym as a Raid Boss during the hour as long as the gym wasn’t raid blocked by another boss. This experiment was met with a diversity of opinions. Week 11 of 2018 This week of 2018 saw the return of Pokémon GO’s first legendary, a lot of changes to the code, and a special event for Unown! Lugia Returns The return of Lugia was something special, not only did it bring in a new and improved Sky Attack move, but it also gave Trainers the shot at catching their very first Shiny Legendary Pokémon. Lugia’s return also brought a new Raid Boss shakeup featuring six never before seen bosses. Game Data Changes – Pokéstop Submissions The first thing to notice is the addition of code referencing Pokéstop Submissions, something that would come later on. Then we saw some updates to dodge and camera distances, moves, and some code referencing Spinda. Finally, Trainers observed a strange push notification with some vague text to follow. Mini-News Roundup – Unown Event This mini-news roundup reminds us of a special Unown event that occurred at SXSW on the final day of the event. This unown event saw the spawn of Unown S, X, and W. Besides this, we also saw the previous sponsor ‘Globe Telecom’ from the Philippines decide to end its contract with Niantic! Week 11 of 2017 This week of 2017 was a bit lonely, only bringing us a small update for certain users. Game Data Changes – Security Update On this occasion, the only thing to show was that android users had a security update which completely disabled GPS spoofing, in other words, users were unable to fake their GPS location in Pokémon GO. This Week in Pokémon GO Final Notes Above all else, the one thing that comes to mind is “Legendary”. Of course, 2017 doesn’t really mention this at all, but when I take a look back at 2018 and seeing the first shiny legendary and then taking a look at this week of 2019 with Rayquaza’s raid weekend, Dialga, and Legendary lunch Hour, it makes me smile at how far Pokémon GO has progressed. Do us a favor, tell us about this week in your own Pokémon GO history, what was your best catch this week? How about your best catch this same week of 2018? How about from 2017? How has your Pokémon journey evolved since then? Be sure to tell us in the comments below. Have fun, and stay safe, Trainers!

  10. Following my latest article on how to introduce Gym Leaders and the Elite Four, I made a glaring and deliberate omission. The Champion. Now it’s time continue the path to the champion. The reason for such an exclusion was because this section would be the pinnacle of the single-player story. Having completed exhibition matches against the Elite Four you are now eligible to take on one of the games regional champions. From the various games, there have been many Champions, usually one per Region. Depending on your version of the game, this can be mixed up. In Pokémon Emerald, for example, Wallace was the Champion instead of Steven for the Hoenn League. For the sake of this concept, I will work with the following list of Champions per Region. Region Champion Kanto Blue Johto Lance Hoenn Steven / Wallace Sinnoh Cynthia Unova Alder / Iris Kalos Diantha In line with the main series, defeating the Elite Four will allow you the opportunity to challenge a champion. This will be the single part story that would involve a time sink prior to the battle, such as Celebi’s Visit PokéStops 7 days in a row or Spiritomb’s Use 108 Berries to help catch Pokémon followed immediately by, Catch 108 Pokémon. An appropriate task maybe to Catch {x} Pokémon originally discovered in the Champions Region. Upon completing the task(s) you are offered a Battle. This battle can only be completed in the Master League format and the Champion will be using Pokémon beyond level 40, have two charge moves, and will block attacks. The battle will be in a 6v6 format so preparation will be required. Upon defeating the Champion you will be awarded items and a Title such as %name, Kanto Champion Titles? Titles are an aesthetic reward in many MMOs and other online games to give a visual representation of something you have achieved in-game. They are usually instantly recognizable by other players on what a player has completed. Titles have been used in the franchise before, most recently in Let’s Go for defeating a Pokémon Master. This would then be displayed when you go into battle online. In Pokémon GO, your Title will be displayed when queuing for raids and when people inspect your character. Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu – Earning a Master title Player Profile mock-up including Title Style collection screen including Titles mock-up Queuing for Raids including Titles mock-up Player Inspection including Titles mock-up Defeating a Champion will not only grant you a Title, but it will also give you an exclusive in-game item, a Golden Bottlecap. This, once used, will automatically upgrade a Pokémon’s IV’s to 100% (15/15/15). I have also considered that defeating an Elite 4 member should award a Regular Bottlecap (a single IV to 100%) in addition to the EX TM’s from my last article. For details on Bottlecaps and how they have worked historically, see the article How Bottle Caps could improve Pokémon GO by DiogodosSantos How Bottle Caps (IV Boost Item) could improve Pokemon GO Once a title is obtained, the respective Champion cannot be re-challenged, but upon defeating 4x Champions a new challenge will unlock. An Insurmountable Champion Red has been the pinnacle of Pokémon challenges across multiple generations, rarely talks and kicks serious butt. If you are unsure the significance of this character, below is a snippet from Bulbapedia, who do a much better job of explaining than I. Bulbapedia Entry Red is known throughout as the Champion from Pallet Town, as well as the living legend for his defeat of Team Rocket in Kanto during his quest. He is the final opponent in the Generation II games Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal, their Generation IV remakes Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, and Pokémon Stadium 2. He is a participant in the Pokémon World Tournament’s Champions Tournament in Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 and works as a boss of the Battle Tree in the Generation VII games Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun, and Ultra Moon. In Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee!, he appears as the highest-level Trainer in the game, capable of being challenged after defeating six Master Trainers. If you found a Champion a nigh impossible challenge, Red will be insurmountable… and that’s the point. This trainer is the top of the difficulty ladder. Designed for Pokémon at level 40 and trainers who will take many tries to overcome. Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu – Challenging Red opening screenRed uses Pokémon at levels beyond the Champion. When defeated he will award the title Pokémon Master and 5x Golden Bottlecaps, along with additional bonuses. Some additional reward ideas I had upon completing these challenges included the coveted Masterball or a Shiny Charm. These are possible options and I am sure there are many more. Outfit additions like Lance’s Cape could also be made available. Let’s Wrap this Up There we have it, a path that started with a fight against Gym Leaders from the main series, ending with you fighting Red. Having reviewed some of the feedback (shout out to peponzio) I have to say that 4 Gyms for an Elite 4 fight maybe too many for Pokémon GO. Below is a little structure I have designed to suggest how the story would play out. Venasto1se’s Trainer PvE Challenge StructureFor those unable to see the flow diagram (happens sometimes) I am suggesting the following: 2x Gym Leaders = Elite 4 Challenge 2x Elite 4 Wins = Champion Challenge 4x Championships = Red Challenge I would love to hear further feedback on this. I hope you enjoyed my mock-up artwork of how I think this would look in game. Here’s hoping Niantic is listening. Expanding content beyond the current story can only enhance the game for both the solo player and the overall community.

  14. There are many different ways that you can play Pokémon Go and many different aspects of the game that you can focus on. But we’d like to know why you play… What keeps you going and what parts do you enjoy the most? Below are what we would consider to be some of the main goals and aspects of the game that keep us enthusiastic. At the bottom, there’s a link to a short form so you can tell us which of them you focus on in your day-to-day Pokémon Go journeys. We will publish and discuss the results in a future article to see what most people enjoy about this amazing game. Completing the Pokédex Why Do You Play Pokemon Go? – A complete Pokédex (correct on date of writing)Arguably, the most important goal of, ‘catching them all’ has been made slightly easier since the introduction of Rare Candy and Trading, but catching every single available Pokémon is still no easy feat… To date, we have 466 Pokémon available in the game, with more being added every few weeks. Once a Trainer has caught one of every species, they may want to take things to the next level and try to get one of each gender for each species. There are also multiple forms of some Pokémon, shiny forms and even versions that are costumed like Event Pikachu with hats and Event Eevee (and its eeveelutions) with flowers. If anyone has managed to complete the ‘dex to its full extent, they’re truly an Elite! Chasing High IV Raid Bosses and Raid Rewards For many Trainers, Raiding seems to be high on the agenda of day-to-day gameplay, with the top prize for successfully beating a Raid Boss being the chance to catch it. Getting one that has high IVs though, is the icing on the Legendary cake. Many players seek to max out (fully power-up) at least one of each Legendary Pokémon, and if you’re going to spend huge amounts of your resources in doing so, then you might as well aim to spend them on the best one you can get your hands on. Bragging rights play a huge part in this competitive, community-driven game and they don’t get much bigger than when you have a 100% Legendary to show off to your friends! The rewards received from Raids are also a major incentives that keeps us buying Raid passes. Rare Candy, TMs and Golden Razzberries are all very important resources and are most easily gained by this method. Shiny Hunting There’s great satisfaction in being the first person to catch the latest Shiny variant and despite most being nothing more than collectibles (i.e. not useful in battle), finding a very rare version of an already released Pokémon can be very exciting and can quickly earn you the jealousy of your co-Trainers. Some communities have Shiny leaderboards too, with the aim to be the Trainer who has the most unique shiny forms. Building Strong Raid Counter Teams Why Do You Play Pokemon Go? – A Dialga Raid Boss counter team on a level 39 account – Optimised using our Dialga Heat MapIf you hope to give yourself the best chance of catching Raid Bosses, then optimizing your counters for each one will help you to do this in two ways; The Trainers who deal the most damage to a Raid Boss secure themselves a ‘Damage Bonus’ – up to three extra Premier Balls with which to try and catch the Raid Boss! If you’re low on Trainers for a Raid, ensuring that everyone deals as much damage as possible can sometimes be the only way to guarantee you beat the Boss before the timer runs out. For the most hardcore players, there are plenty of Raid Guides and info-graphics around which tell you the best counters if the Pokémon are fully powered up. But for a lot of players that don’t have fully powered up counters (or the resources to fully power them up), our Heat Maps can help you work out exactly which of your Pokémon will hit the hardest at their current levels. As an example, here’s our Heat Map for Rayquaza. ‘Short-Manning’ Raids Similar to the process of ‘Building Strong Raid Counter Teams’, ‘Short-manning’ Raids is basically trying to beat high-level Raid Bosses with as few accounts as possible. This is generally a pursuit for the more hardcore Trainers who find themselves with resources in excess of those required to simply beat Bosses using a less than an ideal number of accounts. This could be a trio, a duo or even a solo, and factors such as Boss movesets, Weather Boosts, and Friendship Bonuses can be the difference between success and failure, so the investment of a lot of time, planning and resources are often required too. But if you can do it, the feat alone, never mind the acknowledgment from the community, can give an enormous sense of achievement! IV Hunting While it should be well known that IVs only make a slight difference in battle situations, having one of every species with excellent IVs is high on the agenda for a lot of Trainers, especially if they’re meta-relevant because if you’re going to power something up, it might as well be the best it can be. Some Trainers even actively seek out and keep Pokémon with 0% IVs just for that extra challenge and trophy aspect. Reaching XP Milestones Why do you play Pokémon Go? – EastBayRag’s next milestone of 160m XP will be the equivalent of hitting Level 40 eight times!Whether it be reaching a new level, hitting level 40, or going many millions of XP beyond that, aiming to reach that next milestone can still be an exciting achievement. The easiest way to gain XP fast is by hitting Ultra or Best Friends with other trainers and doubling the large amounts of XP gained, by using a lucky egg. Building the Best PvP Teams Why Do You Play Pokemon Go? – Ultra league teams in the process of being optimizedThe introduction of Trainer Battles (PvP) in Pokémon Go gave some players a lot of new options for how to spend their hard-earned resources. Pokémon that were once nothing more than Pokédex fillers are now having such large amounts of stardust spent on them that it would have seemed crazy just a few months ago. Analyzing your teams and thinking about which ones deserve to have their CPs brought up the League caps is now an aspect of the game that many players would describe as their main focus of gameplay. There’s a great satisfaction to be had from spending your time and resources to carefully develop a battle strategy on paper and to then see it work successfully on the battlefield. Completing Medals We have medals for many aspects of the game now but for the more hardcore players, achieving gold on all of them is often a focus. No major bonuses are unlocked by doing this (only some Avatar clothing items and a higher catch rate for each level of the Type Medals) but again, the sense of satisfaction for achieving all of the goals the developers set out, some of which require a lot of hard work, must be amazing. Controlling Gyms Many players still enjoy the challenge of taking down and defending Gyms. There is, of course, the potential bonus of 50 Pokécoins per day for defending Gyms, and extra items from spinning a Gym that your Team controls, but beyond that, it really comes down to competitiveness between the Teams. Earning Gold Gym Badges Even for a casual player, getting a single Gym Badge to Gold is fairly easy, especially if it’s a Gym you pass every day or live close to. But getting Gold Medals for all of the gyms in your city or even town is something that can take a lot of effort and dedication. The only in-game benefit that Gold Gym Medals currently give is that you receive more items from spinning that Gym’s PhotoDisc, but are also legitimate sources of those all-important bragging rights. Taking AR Photos We at Go Hub love AR photos. We even have a monthly series featuring the best of our readers’ photos called the AR Showcase. But for the Trainer with a creative side, finding that perfect shot can be a strong focus of their day-to-day gameplay and since the Go Snapshot feature was added in February 2019, AR photography in Pokémon Go has become much easier; Using the camera button on each Pokémon’s information screen, you can place any of your Pokémon into the real world and snap away without fear of losing it. Some communities even hold Go Snapshot competitions! If you love taking AR photos and want to encourage more people to try it, why not suggest a competition to your Admins? Why Do You Play Pokemon Go? – A Go Snapshot photo by LMSharpy / gosnapspkmnHelping Other Trainers As a writer for Pokémon Go Hub, this is a part of the game that I can personally identify with. But writing (hopefully) informative articles is far from the only way we can help each other. Many Trainers who have been playing Pokémon Go religiously since launch, often have the experience and knowledge of the game to be able to help those who don’t know it quite as well. Virtually every community will have those players who share valuable information, news, tips, tricks, insights, info-graphics, Raid locations, Research task locations, Trade offers, rare/ high IV spawns, nest locations, EX Raid invitations, etc, etc. In a game as socially active as Pokémon Go, not only does sharing this type of information help everyone in the community to progress more quickly and more efficiently, but it feels great to know you’ve helped others – it’s a real win-win. Playing for Exercise We’re arguably more immersed by this game than any other game in history; among smaller details that reinforce this, the world is our gaming environment and for many players, this has never stopped being a novelty… Apart from those who live at a Pokéstop or Gym, you have to leave the house to play Pokémon Go and whether you play while you exercise or exercise while you play, the health benefits of Pokémon Go are certainly a major factor for why many people still play it. As someone who used to have no real desire to leave the house, I now spend very little of my free time inside it, thanks entirely to this game. Playing Socially Similarly to playing for exercise, some players weren’t actively socializing before they discovered this game. But now they’re part of a passionate community, most of whom meet up almost daily to Raid, Battle, Trade, share information and news, and ultimately have fun playing Pokémon Go. The formation of great friendships and strengthening of family bonds are just two of many positive effects of this game’s existence. Why Do You Play Pokémon Go? Of the fifteen reasons above, which five would you say keep you playing the most? Please let us know by filling in this form. We’ll analyze the results to see if we can find any interesting correlations and share them with you in a follow-up article. I’d also like to note that this article (and some of its contents) was partly inspired by a similar question on The Silph Road’s Travelers Card form where they ask what your ‘current primary goal’ is… We’re also interested in the answer to this but would like to know about your secondary goals too.

  16. Trainers, the Equinox event has just been announced! Pokémon GO Equinox event 2019 takes place from March 19th – 26th and features increased spawns of Grass type Pokemon, Lunatone and Solrock switching places and two new moves: Acid Spray and Leaf Tornado. We don’t know which (if any) new shiny Pokémon will be available. Equinox Event 2019 fact chart Event Equinox Event 2019 Date & Time from Mar. 19, 2019, at 1:00 p.m. PDT to Mar. 26, 2019, at 1:00 p.m. PDT (GMT −7) Features Increased Grass type spawns (Oddish, Exeggcute, Sunkern, and Shroomish mentioned in the announcement) Lunatone and Solrock switch hemispheres permanently Grass-type Pokémon in raids and Grass-type themed field research Two new moves will be permanently added to the game New moves Acid Spray: Arbok, Victreebel, Tentacruel, Muk, Alolan Muk, Quagsire, Qwilfish, Octillery, and Swalot. Leaf Tornado: Victreebel, Shiftry The Equinox event comes right after the upcoming weekend featuring Rayquaza raids and just in time to celebrate the March’s equinox phenomena (yes, March’s, there are two in a year!). For those who don’t know it, an equinox is the moment at which the center of the visible Sun is directly above the Equator. It happens twice a year, on March 20th and on September 23rd and Pokémon GO celebrates it accordingly! Niantic is following up on the trend of permanently adding new moves during events as Power-Up Punch was added during Pokémon GO Battle Showdown 2019. Both new moves seem to be part of the 18 moves that were silently slipped into the game five months ago, confirming our theory that Niantic is not yet happy with move variety in Pokémon GO. The following Pokémon will permanently get access to Acid Spray Poison: Arbok Victreebel Tentacruel Muk Muk (Alola) Quagsire Qwilfish Octillery Swalot The following Pokemon will permanently get access to Leaf Tornado Grass: Victreebel Shiftry It remains to be seen how much each Pokémon will benefit from the new moves. Stay tuned for our moves analysis and be on the lookout for potential new shinies! It’s kinda strange that there aren’t any XP, candy or Stardust bonuses, which makes us think that Niantic could have something different in store.

Moltres is a fire and flying type Pokemon and is weak to rock, electric, and water type Pokemon.

  19. This News Roundup sees that Niantic’s recent trend of dropping new content/events in bunches has continued and seemingly knows no end. With the introduction of Legendary Lunch Hour, the announcement of Rayquaza Raid Weekend, Defense Forme Deoxys taking over as the new EX Raid Boss, and Pokéstop Submissions going live in Indonesia, this has truly been an eventful week. Legendary Lunch Hour Niantic rolled out this new event to try and cater to the working class during their lunch breaks. Legendary Lunch Hour was introduced as an hour-long window where trainers could pretty much do as many Dialga Raids as time would allow should they so choose. And while feedback on this event has been mixed, we can’t wait to see what Niantic does with it in the future. For more information about Legendary Lunch Hour be sure to read our Legendary Lunch Hour: Event Guide and Legendary Lunch Hour: Initial Thoughts. Rayquaza Raid Weekend The return everyone was waiting for! Well, kind of anyways. Niantic announced that the Legendary Pokémon Rayqauaza would be returning for a special Raid Weekend starting March 15th at 1 PM PST and ending on March 18th at 1 PM PST. The initial excitement about the return of Rayquaza was quickly muted though, upon the revelation that Shiny Rayquaza would not be available to catch upon completion of these raids. Though this may bum some of you out, keep in mind that Rayquaza is an extremely useful Pokémon to have in your arsenal, so taking part in this Raid Weekend will still benefit you in the long run. For more information about this weekend-long event see: Rayquaza is Coming Back for a Special Raid Weekend. We also have our Rayquaza Counters Guide and Rayquaza Counters Heat Map at your disposal. Defense Forme Deoxys A new EX Raid Boss is coming, Trainers! Defense Forme Deoxys was announced to be taking over for Attack Forme Deoxys as the next EX Raid Boss starting on March 25th. We hope you enjoyed soloing Attack Forme Deoxys because the Defense Forme of this Orange Alien is no pushover. Even the most hardcore of raiding groups will require a group of at least 4 Trainers to take down Defense Forme Deoxys. Take a look at our Defense Forme Deoxys Raid Guide for more information on how to beat the Legendary Alien most efficiently. Pokéstop Submissions in Indonesia Niantic has announced that the PokeStop nomination system is now live in Indonesia – for everyone who is eligible. Trainers level 40 and above can now participate and create new portal candidates which are then reviewed by OPR agents.
