The Pokemon Company has announced via their official Twitter that they will be teaming up with Niantic to donate $5 million to nonprofit organizations. This news comes shortly after the Pokemon Company donated $200,000 to organizations affiliated with the Black Lives Matter movement in support of those affected by systematic racism and police brutality.

This donation is set to take place after Pokemon Go Fest 2020 (July 25 and 26) and the specific charities being contributed to will be listed at a later date. This money is meant to go towards helping children and promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion at a young age. The statement also specifies that the money will go to organizations that will educate and mentor black children that may be in need.

Gods & Monsters

At E3 2019, Ubisoft revealed Gods & Monsters. The open-world action-adventure game, which has drawn a few comparisons to Zelda: Breath of the Wild, is currently experiencing extended development after being delayed well beyond its planned February 2020 launch. It’s been a year since the original announcement and we’ve yet to see much of the project, but a new leak has given us a look at the title in action. 

Today’s leak came about in a very unexpected way. It appears that an early development build briefly appeared on Google Stadia and a few users were actually able to get their hands on it. Clips show a big world to explore, a stamina meter like Breath of the Wild, combat, and more. However, it should be stressed that since this is a dev build, not all assets/elements are final, and there will be changes for the final release.
