Recently, a new glitch was discovered in Pokemon GO that cuts down on the amount of time it takes to catch a Pokemon. Players have found a way to bypass the catching animation during a Pokemon battle, saving a bit of time in the process.

During a battle, try holding the Poke Ball menu with one hand while attempting to catch the Pokemon with the other. You’ll then need to let go of the Poke Ball menu when the Pokemon starts wriggling around inside the Poke Ball. Next tap the screen to bring up the run away option. After you choose that, you’ll return to the map.

You can see if you managed to catch the Pokemon by looking at your journal. Note that an error message may appear indicating that your catch was successful.

GREE, a Japanese company with a great deal of success in the mobile space, is now pursuing console development. We found out that they’re developing Fishing Star for Switch just a few days ago.

Apparently, GREE is considering using Nintendo Labo. The company said that it “may” take advantage of the fishing rod accessory.

As for how GREE is handling Fishing Star on Switch, it’s planned as a single-purchase title as opposed to free-to-play. It was selected as the company’s entry into the console market since there’s a minimum risk involved, there’s a certain scale in the fishing game market, and they want to collect know-how (on the market). Switch was chosen because of the Joy-Con and due to the fact that casual games are doing well on the platform.
