    The 2017 Game Developers Choice Awards took place earlier this evening. At the event, there was one Nintendo-related winner.

    Pokemon GO was chosen as the “Best Handheld / Mobile Game”. It beat out Super Mario Run, Pokemon Sun / Moon, Clash Royale, and Reigns.


    My Nintendo has added in another Super Mario Run reward. For 300 Platinum Points, the Gold Peach Statue can be yours. The Mario and Bowser Gold statues are still on My Nintendo as well.

    Pokemon GO is still missing a key feature from the main Pokemon games: trading. It should be added via an update in the future, but Niantic still has some work to do before it’s ready.

    Speaking with Polygon at GDC, senior product manager Tatsuo Nomura confirmed that trading won’t happen through the internet. He also indicated that the team is still trying to figure out the best way to handle the functionality. Failing here could “easily kill the game.”

    Nomura said:

    “[Trading] won’t be through the internet. You shouldn’t be able to exchange your Pokémon with someone who is 100 miles away from you. … The person needs to be in your proximity.”

    “I wasn’t really thinking of trading as a way to solve the local area spawn issue. That was more, we have a couple Pokémon that only spawn in a couple regions, and that was the hope, that some Pokémon you have to know someone or find someone who lives in certain regions and meet and exchange. We don’t want to just have that be an online game that you can just exchange virtually.”

    “We’re still trying to come up with an answer [to trading] that makes sense so it doesn’t kill the game. If we fail this, we can easily kill the game.”


    Pokemon Duel will be receiving another update tomorrow. Several of the game’s characters will be impacted by balance changes.

    Serebii shares the following list:


    Ability – Charizard gets the ability Speed Booster which increases its Movement by 1 if it has evolved
    Move Iron Tail is changed to Dragon Tail


    Power of Dragon Breath increased from 80 to 100
    Power of Land’s Wratch increased from 60 to 70


    Ability – Metagross grets the ability Rapid Calculation which ignores ability-forced respin effects
    Power of Metal Claw increased from 80 to 90


    Ability – Tyranitar gains the new ability Speed Booster
    Earthquake piece size increased
    Power of Bite increased from 40 to 50
    Position of Earthquake and Crunch swapped
    Size of Miss piece reduced


    Fire Emblem Heroes has updated again. The update includes new missions for March, giving players various tasks to complete by the end of the month for rewards. If you complete all the missions on a difficulty level, harder missions with greater rewards will be unlocked. The Normal missions and their rewards are as follows:

  • Defeat 5 foes with blue-type allies – 1 Stamina Potion
  • Defeat 5 foes with armored allies – 1 Dueling Crest

    During a session at GDC this week, Niantic’s Dennis Hwang provided a look at how Pokemon GO changed throughout development. The company messed around with different versions of the overworld map, a variety of takes on the appearance of the battle screen, and even original plans for the trainer avatar.

    As for the trainer, originally Niantic had an avatar more in line with the character from Pokemon Ruby / Sapphire. However, it was scrapped during early stages of development.

    Hwang said during his talk:

    “[In] the original IP, the trainers have a much younger look as the target audience tends to skew younger. But for us, the avatars, we wanted to kind of elevate them to an older generation slightly.”

    “We didn’t want some super stylized big-headed, small-bodied characters running on the map when you’re the real game hero. We kind of wanted to match the virtual with the physical.”


    At a keynote in Barcelona at Mobile World Congress today, Niantic CEO John Hanke teased the future of Pokemon GO. Three major new releases are planned for the mobile game this year. Hanke didn’t clarify, but that’s likely in addition to the Generation 2 update.
