A new patch is now available for Pokemon Duel that brings the game up to Version 7.0.0 and introduces a “Z-Powered” update.

Niantic has announced a new feature for Pokemon GO. The company today revealed “GO Snapshot”, which will be a way for players to take photos of any Pokemon they have in their Pokemon Storage. It can be found when looking at specific Pokemon or accessing the camera in your Bag of items.

Here’s how it works:

It’s simple to use. Select a Pokémon and tap on the screen to throw its Poké Ball to that spot. Once your Pokémon is situated in the ideal spot, you can then move around it to find the best angle for your photo. Is your Pokémon distracted or looking the wrong way? Brush across it to get its attention, and it will be sure to face you.

Take as many photos as you like during your session. Once you’re finished, all photos are saved to your device automatically! It’s also easier than ever to share your favorite photo via social media. Just select the linked social channel you want to share with, and you can show your friends your masterpiece with a couple of quick taps.

GO Snapshot will be added to Pokemon GO “soon”.


Following on the latest trend, two battle-themed Summoning Focuses are now live in Fire Emblem Heroes — “Takumi and Hinoka’s Battle” and “Cherche and Virion’s Battle”.

While the first is slated to only last 24 hours, “Cherche and Virion’s Battle” will go until February 18th. “Takumi and Hinoka’s Battle” will feature Takumi (Wild Card), Hinoka (Warrior Princess), and Sakura (Loving Priestess), while Cherche (Wyvern Friend), Virion (Eliter Acher), and Tiki (Naga’s Voice) are the focus in the other.


Two returning Summoning Focuses are now back and live in Fire Emblem Heroes — “Tiki & Nowi’s Battle” and “Love Abounds”.

The first of these will only last for the next 24 hours, and will fittingly feature Tiki (Naga’s Voice), Nowi (Eternal Witch), and Robin (Fell Reincarnation).

Separately, the “Love Abounds” Focus is back just in time for Valentine’s Day, and will feature Lyn (Wind’s Embrace), Hector (Just Here To Fight), Lilina (Blush of Youth), and Roy (Youthful Gifts). This set will be available to summon from until March 11th.

On a side note, the 13th Tap Battle: Illusory Dungeon event is now also live in the mobile title, dubbed “Carrying the Flame”. This event will go until March 4th.
