Several Starbucks employees have come forward with an apparent internal message pertaining to Pokemon GO. It points to something potentially huge happening with the mobile game later this week.

Assuming the message is legitimate – which seems very likely at this point – Pokemon GO is receiving some sort of update on Thursday. It states that Niantic’s title “is about to expand with new Pokemon” – plus a new Starbucks beverage to celebrate.

A Pokemon GO update was implemented last month which affected training at Gyms. Fans weren’t pleased with the changes, but training rewards have returned to their original levels.

Niantic posted on Facebook earlier today:


After November’s Pokemon GO update, the amount of prestige points players could earn at gyms reduced to 500. That was a big drop from the original number of 1,000. These points are necessary to level up Gyms and protect them further.

A new My Nintendo video was recently shared across Europe that reveals some interesting elements about the upcoming integration with Super Mario Run.

Just like Miitomo, players will be able to earn points on the membership service. It’s almost certain that you’ll be completing certain missions in order to earn Super Mario Run Platinum Points (which combine with all Platinum Points you earn).

The video also shows Rally Tickets as an upcoming reward on My Nintendo. Tickets are needed to play Toad Rally in Super Mario Run. Aside from earning them on My Nintendo, you can also earn these in different ways like finishing worlds or through bonus games in your kingdom.

Another Super Mario Run reward is depicted showing Toad. However, its purpose isn’t entirely known just yet. We should be finding out when the game launches on December 15.

Miitomo has been updated with more content. Users will find returning stages with more items.

“Out of this world! Futuristic Fashion” is the returning stage theme. They provide the following:

– Pressure suit helmet (set)
– Pressure suit (set)
– Space shuttle
– Saturn prismatic pin
– Galactic parka
– Galactic shorts
– Galactic tights
– Galactic sneakers
– Planet Earth hood
– Alien-life tee
– Invading UFO skirt
– Alien-abduction tights

These stages and items are available until December 4 at 6 PM PT / 9 PM ET.

Nintendo brought out a major Miitomo update last month, but another one is on the way. It will encompass the following:

– You will be able to teach Sidekick Mii charaters how to answer questions
– “Sidekick Central,” a place where you can share your Sidekick Mii characters’ answers with other users, will be added
– Emoji in your Mii characters’ answers will trigger sound effects
– Various performance improvements

Nintendo asks users to “wait just a little longer for this update”.

In other news, Miitomo has been updated with new content. Players can nab the latest items in the Miitomo Drop stage, “‘Tis the season! Happy Holidays #1”.

The new version of Pokemon GO’s Nearby feature is starting to be deployed to a wider region.
