Earlier this week, we heard about a new Team Medallion that had been datamined for Pokemon GO. Niantic has now made it official.

Just as was leaked, the Team Medallion lets players change teams. It can be purchased once every 365 days for 1,000 PokeCoins. Niantic will officially introduce the item on February 26 at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET.

The GO Snapshot that was revealed alst week by Niantic is now available for Android users in Pokemon GO.

However, at this time, only trainers that are over the level of 5 will have access to the feature. This is part of the gradual rollout that the developers intend to do in order to fine tune the addition.

Niantic has announced a Special Raid Weekend for Pokemon GO. Starting on Friday at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET, the Legendary Pokemon Latias will be available in Raid Battles. You may also encounter Shiny Latias if you’re lucky enough.

The event ends on February 25 at the same time.


Polygon recently spoke with Niantic product manager Matt Slemon about all things Pokemon GO. Slemon talked about the mobile game’s past, present, and future.

As for what lies ahead, Slemon said that Pokemon GO is almost at “the point where our original launch trailer promise has been delivered”. While there will be “small iterations to our existing features”, the team is now going to concentrate a bit less on traditional Pokemon features and focus on “features that are more about really showing what it means to be an AR real-world game”.

The latest Summoning Focus for Fire Emblem Heroes — Kitsune and Wolfskin — is now live, along with a new Forging Bonds event.

As stated previously, the Focus features long-requested characters from Fire Emblem Fates, Keaton, Velouria, Kaden, and Selkie. Players will be able to try for these heroes from this set until March 8th.

Separately, however, Panne (Proud Taguel) from Fire Emblem Awakening will be available as part of a new Grand Hero Battle starting on February 24th going until March 5th.

Finally, a new Forging Bonds event — titled “The Orb Case” — is now live as well. It will be available for players to participate in and strengthen bonds with the new characters in until March 6th.

Becoming the primary focus of this month in Dragalia Lost, Cygames has provided yet another update on Void Battle details.

This time around, the developers discuss weapons to be used in the new mode, as well as a Treasure Trade system. The info can be viewed below.

Pokemon GO appears to be preparing for a new item that will allow players to change teams. “Team Medallion” seems to be coming in the next update based on what has been datamined by Chrales, which lets players transfer to another team. You’ll need to pay for the item, but it can only be purchased from the shop once every 365 days.

Note that there is no confirmed pricing for Team Medallion at this time. Niantic will presumably have more to say about this very soon.
