A big priority Niantic has for Pokemon GO is to improve the gym system. Studio CEO John Hanke recently spoke about the need to improve the gameplay, and that’s something senior product manager Tatsuo Nomura discussed with Polygon as well.

Nomura told the site:

“The gym portion [of Pokémon Go] needs a lot more work, and we are trying to improve it and make a bigger change to how the system works. Overall, I think we need a little bit more time to think through how we do it.”

“We needed to define [gyms] in a way that works in a mobile game. For example, we didn’t have … there’s no non-playable characters. That’s not how the game works. We’re an MMO, and we expect people to play with other people.”

“We expected more people to play that portion, and a lot of that is game balancing and just mechanics-wise, there’s some part of that that needs refinement.”

Niantic hasn’t shared a timetable as to when we can expect a new approach to gyms in Pokemon GO. The company does have a few updates planned for 2017 though, so it’s possible that there could be something by the end of the year. 


Nintendo is bringing back the Loads of Coins event. Starting today, those who win a Toad Rally will receive 1.5 times as many coins as usual. This will last until March 22.

Fire Emblem Heroes has received a new update, but don’t expect any major content. Nintendo pushed out version 1.1.1 on both iOS and Android today. According to the patch notes, the update implements bug fixes.

Round of the Princes vs Princesses Voting Gauntlet has now finished – and the victors are Chrom, Ephraim, Lucina and Eirika. Ranking rewards for the first round can now be claimed and you get a bonus if the army you supported won. If your army lost, you can now join a different one in round 2. The round 2 matchups are Chrom vs Ephraim and Lucina vs Eirika.

Also, the next Grand Hero Battle will start tomorrow, March 10th. This time, players will face off against Ursula from Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade. A new summoning focus will also be available for the duration of the Grand Hero Battle.


Update: Bumped to the top. The same update is out now. For some reason, it’s version 1.0.1 rather than 1.0.2.

Original: A new update is out now for the Switch Parental Controls app, but only on Android as of now. It’s changed to version 1.0.2 on the device. Nintendo says that bug fixes were implemented, and that’s pretty much it.

Nintendo made it known that Fire Emblem Heroes is adding the new Inherit Skill feature on March 16. Additional details have since been published on the official Japanese Twitter account.

It shares the following:

– You can inherit up to three skills from one hero
– The inherited skills will start off as mastered (on the new owner)
– To learn the inherited skills, you’ll need 1.5 times more SP than usual

The Twitter account goes on to say that exclusive hero skills like Falchion cannot be inherited. Finally, some skills may not be transferable depending on the inheritor hero’s weapon type and movement type.


The Voting Gauntlet currently running in Fire Emblem Heroes has rewards for all participating players based on the end score. The highest goal was originally for 5 billion total score, but the current score is 6,089,630,753. As such, additional goals have been added.

If players can total 8 billion points, everyone will be rewarded 15 Orbs, 5 of each Great Badge, and 2000 Universal Crystals. If the total hits 10 billion, everyone will be rewarded 20 Orbs, 5 of each Great Badge, and 5000 Universal Crystals. Get to battling, everyone!

Fire Emblem Heroes will be getting its Inherit Skill update on March 16, at 3:00 AM (EST). It will allow Heroes to learn skills from other Heroes. The notification states that the release time could change.
