Just a place to add my thoughts and updates about the popular freemium mobile game, Pokemon Go.
Team Rocket has been spotted in the app!
Basically the PokeStop will turn Black when it has been 'corrupted' by Team Rocket. Battling here will allow you to collect a Shadow Pokemon which you can purify for a badge and a moderatly high CP pokemon. I'll update with more info as I get it.
3 years... Has it been 3 years already? I remember doing everything I could to get ahold of the beta version for this game and eventually finding an APK 3 days before general release.
It's been a mad journey though. I've made a lot of real life friends from this game, I've strengthened my existing relationships with my friends and I've found out just how competitive my wife is as she did everything she could to catch them all before me.
There is still bugs, some very annoying bugs, but you can't deny it has come a long way from the crashing every 30 seconds issues we had at launch. Mind you, nobody anticipated how popular it would be. Not even Niantic.
But I digress.
In celebration of the games 3rd anniversary, there is a lot of new features and shiny Pokémon being released as of 8pm UK time tonight. Full information can be found on their website here: https://pokemongolive.com/en/post/birthday2019/
The lake guardians are now present in raids as well as in the wild! Keep in mind they are region locked though.
Uxie - Asia region
Mespirit - Europe, Middle East, Africa and India
Azelf - The Americas
Uxie will have a Raid CP of 35,356, will require 4-8 high level players to defeat, and is weak against Bug, Dark and Ghost.
Mespirit will have a Raid CP of 41,887, will require 3-7 high level players to defeat, and is weak against Bug, Dark and Ghost.
Azelf will have a Raid CP of 44,972, will require 3-6 high level players to defeat, and is weak against Bug, Dark and Ghost.
Once you have a Tyrogue, how it evolves from into the three fighting types depends on its stats:
If Attack is higher than other stats, Tyrogue evolves into Hitmonlee
If Defence is higher than other stats, Tyrogue evolves into Hitmonchan
If Stamina / HP is higher than other stats, Tyrogue evolves into Hitmontop
