  Pokémon Go’s first 2020 Community Day features Piplup!
Posted by: Avia - Jan 08, 2020 7:48 PM - No Replies

Pokémon Go’s January 2020 Community Day will feature Piplup, the adorable penguin water-type Pokémon.

The Community Day will take place on Sunday, Jan. 19, but the event time will be different depending on which hemisphere you live in, which is a first for the game. Players in the Northern Hemisphere will have their event active from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. in their local time, and players in the Southern Hemisphere will have their event from 3 p.m. until 6 p.m. in their local time.

During this event, Piplup will be spawning in large numbers, with a high chance to find it Shiny.

The special Community Day move for Piplup has yet to be officially announced, but it’s pretty safe to say it’s going to be Hydro Cannon, like all the other water-type starter Pokémon. Evolving Piplup into its final evolution, Empoleon, during the event period will give it this powerful move. This is a great move on Empoleon, making it a strong water-type attacker, only behind Kingler, Kyogre, and Swampert.

All eggs put into Incubators during the event period will also hatch four times faster than usual. As with all other Community Days, Lures will also last for three hours.

  Pokémon Go Adventure Sync Hatchathon event guide: bonuses and special Pokémon!
Posted by: Avia - Jan 03, 2020 1:35 PM - No Replies


Pokémon Go is having its Adventure Sync Hatchathon to celebrate the new year until Jan 16 at 4 p.m. ET, encouraging players to walk around and hatch some eggs.

There’s doubled Stardust and candy from hatching eggs, as well as bonuses for any players who walk a whopping 50 kilometers this week. If you manage this feat, you’ll get 50,000 Stardust, 15 Rare Candies, and a Unova Stone.

Pichu and Pikachu with party hats return for the event, with Pichu only being able to be hatched from two and seven kilometer eggs, and Pikachu spawning in the wild. Party hat-wearing Raticate, Wobbuffet, and Wurmple are making their first-ever appearance, with Raticate and Wobbuffet showing up in raids and Wurmple hatching out of two kilometer eggs. Players can also get a Raichu with a party hat, though you’ll have to evolve your party hat Pikachu.

All of these party Pokémon are also available to find Shiny, if you’re lucky.

  Baby Pikachu's origin story will be explored in the new Pokemon anime series!
Posted by: Avia - Nov 03, 2019 1:50 PM - No Replies


[Image: dqW4eWEXeU6J8tBpZTpqy5-650-80.jpg]

A trailer for the new Pokemon anime series based on the first episode has been released, which looks set to explore the origin story of Pikachu as a Pichu before the little mouse met Ash. The first episode is titled "the Birth of Pikachu," and will give us our first look at the adorable baby Pikachu's story in the Kanto region.

The trailer was released on the official Japanese website for the anime series, with the show set to air in Japan on November 17. While the trailer is in Japanese, Crunchyroll reports that the Pichu depicted appears to allude to Pikachu before the little mouse was all grown up and teamed up with the iconic trainer.

A synopsis for the first episode was also detailed on the website, and thanks to Crunchyroll's translation, we know it reads:

"In a forest somewhere in Kanto, there once was a lonely Pichu. This Pichu - who was still quite young - had a certain encounter and farewell. This took place shortly before Ash and his partner Pikachu started travelling together. This is the beginning of the anime "Pocket Monster.""

"A lonely Pichu" - are you crying yet? Because I am. In the trailer you can also see Pokemon new and old make an appearance, including Pokemon from Pokemon Sword and Shield's new Galar region - which makes sense given the new series will launch shortly after the worldwide release of the game.

The series will see Ash join up with a new companion and protagonist by the name of Gou, who apparently dreams of finding Mew and catching em' all. With a new art style that's more in-keeping with the cartoony look of the Pokemon: Sun and Moon animated series than the original 1997 series, the adventure will once again begin in the Kanto region.

  Grookey and Sobble evolutions have (possibly) leaked!
Posted by: Avia - Nov 01, 2019 2:31 PM - Replies (4)


[Image: evo-leak-800x400.jpg]

We are swiftly approaching the launch of Pokémon Sword and Shield. With only two weeks to go, many avid fans are still perplexed that we know so little about the game’s new Pokémon. We have no official information about the evolutions of the three starters. Even Impidimp, a Pokémon featured heavily during the forest livestream, was never officially revealed. However, it appears that we might have a little leak on our hands, and we might now know what Sobble and Grookey will look like once they evolve.

A throwaway account named @LeakPokemon posted on Twitter two screenshots of the potential mid-forms of the Sobble and Grookey lines. The account was quickly deleted, but the tweet itself was screen capped by several people, including prominent leaker Sabi.

[Image: w1LlDRJ.png]

The awkward teenage evolutions…

Sobble’s evolution appears to turn into Brendon Uxie of Poké! at the Disco. It’s a very appropriate evolution, if I do say so myself. The progression from sensitive child to emo teen is something many Millennials can identify with. Grookey’s evolution dual-wields two sticks not unlike a drummer, continuing Grookey’s possible musical theme. Sadly, Scorbunny’s evolution is absent from the leak, which means we’re going to have to wait even longer to see if it turns into a dreaded Fire/Fighting.

Whether it’s an actual leak or just some fancy fan art is still up for debate. The screenshots are fairly high-quality and this isn’t some random 4chan text leak, but Nintendo fans should always remember Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s infamous “Grinch Leak.” Still, this also isn’t the first time starter evolutions have been leaked like this. Decidueye, Incineroar, and Primarina were all leaked months before Pokémon Sun and Moon’s release via confidential anime concept art.

Only time will tell if the leak is a genuine one. But even if it isn’t genuine, these are still some neat designs.

I like those, I hope they're real!

  Pokemon Sword and Shield Length Revealed
Posted by: Avia - Oct 29, 2019 8:02 PM - No Replies


How long will Pokemon Sword and Shield be? Well, according to Game Freak, the Nintendo Switch exclusive titles will be roughly as long as previous games in the series and include a similar amount of content. In other words, if you want to mainline the games, it will take you about 30 hours. Meanwhile, the average playthrough will be roughly 50 hours. And lastly, if you're a completionist, you could be looking at 100-150 hours.

Word of the game's approximate length comes from director of the game, Shigeru Ohmori , who revealed as much while speaking with Game Informer. Further, according to Ohmori, the game's new Wild Area should add a considerable deal of replayability.

“I think it’s hard to go into details of that, but in terms of the volume or the amount of content in the main adventure, it’s comparable to other Pokemon generations that we’ve played,” said Ohmori. “I think there’s a lot of interesting activities that, for example, completing the Pokédex or really going out into the Wild Area and engaging with those mechanics, that’ll add a lot of replay value for players who are looking to get really hardcore into that.”

Pokemon Sword and Shield are set to release November 15 via the Nintendo Switch.

Meanwhile, as always, feel free to leave a comment or two letting us know what you think or, alternatively, hit me up on Twitter @Tyler_Fischer_ and let me know over there.

"Begin your adventure as a Pokemon Trainer by choosing one of three new partner Pokemon: Grookey, Scorbunny, or Sobble," reads an official pitch of the game. "Then embark on a journey in the new Galar region, where you’ll challenge the troublemakers of Team Yell, while unraveling the mystery behind the Legendary Pokemon Zacian and Zamazenta! Explore the Wild Area, a vast expanse of land where the player can freely control the camera. Team up with three other players locally or online in the new multiplayer co-op Max Raid Battles in which players will face off against gigantic and super-strong Pokemon known as Dynamax Pokemon."
