Posted on 2 hours ago by Fernando in Mobile, News | 4 Comments | 0 Likes
Dataminers at The Silph Road have found more signs of arriving new Pokémon inside the raw data of Pokémon GO’s most recent patch.
Specifically, there’s some new mentions for evolution items such as King’s Rock, Metal Coat or Upgrade, which can be used to evolve Slowbro into Slowking, Onix into Steelix and Porygon into Porygon2. There’s also the Sun Stone and the Dragon Scale, evolutionary items that are needed to get Bellossom and Kingdra. All of these Generation 2 Pokémon would be ready to obtain in future updates along with Unowns, which have been mentioned explicitly as forms ranging from Unown A to Unown Exclamation Point.
According to The Silph Road, there has been an addition of 38 new moves. This is the first time that Niantic has implemented moves to Pokémon GO if we don’t take into account Ditto’s Transform.
Additionally, they have found more mentions to avatar customization such as belts, glasses and necklaces, more code to support the shiny and gender variations of pokémon and a new system for debugging purposes.
It is expected that Niantic will implement these new features in a future Pokémon GO update.

China is not allowing Pokémon GO due to safety measures
Posted on 1 week ago by Fernando in Mobile, News | 4 Comments | 0 Likes
Niantic’s Pokémon GO never became available in China since its launch last summer and the reason for that is apparently the potential security risks that the Chinese state censor is foreseeing.
According to Reuters, Pokémon GO won’t be licensed in China until the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television evaluates the dangers of the augmented reality game in which players capture fictional creatures in the real world using a smartphone.
And they have reason to worry. Since Pokémon GO came out there has been a lot of news about car crashings, dead body findings and some types of crime related to it. Additionally, the censor is preoccupied about the implementation of Google Maps in order to track a player’s position, which is blocked in China.
When asked about this situation, a representative of Niantic told Kotaku that they are “focused elsewhere at the moment”. So it doesn’t seem like Niantic is obsessed about not being able to implement Pokémon GO in China.
