Niantic and mobile carrier Sprint are gearing up for a special announcement. Tomorrow, the two companies will have some sort of news to share about Pokemon GO. Marcelo Claure and John Hanke, chief executives of Sprint and Niantic, respectively, will be in attendance.

The event will be held at the following times:

– 8:30 AM PT
– 11:30 AM ET
– 4:30 PM in the UK
– 5:30 PM in Europe

It’s not clear what will be announced, but we’ll bring you the news as soon as we have it.


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.

The new version of Pokemon GO’s Nearby feature is starting to be deployed to a wider region. Niantic said today that it will be expanded “to the rest of the continental United States and large parts of Europe.” Additionally, the team “will continue to review the feedback submitted on our official social media accounts and in other channels and make changes if necessary.”


Rumor has it that Pokemon GO will be receiving a major update next month. Based on analysis of the game’s code done by people associated with web scanner PokeVS, 100 new normal and Legendary Pokemon will be added. That’s in addition to the possibility of player-versus-player battles, raising the Pokemon you catch similar to Tamagotchi pets, and trading.

GamesBeat, who reports on today’s story, says it’s unclear if Pokemon GO’s update will be dropped entirely at once over time. However, PokeVS’ before-and-after comparisons of the code indicated where the updates are expected to be implemented. Niantic told GamesBeat that the “Gen 2” is planned as an update, but didn’t share anything further.

Pokemon GO – Ditto promo

Posted on 1 year ago by (@NE_Brian) in Mobile, Videos | 0 comments | 0 Likes

The Pokemon Company and Niantic have now officially announced that Ditto can be caught in Pokemon GO. Along with the news, a brief promo has been shared – see it below.

Niantic has been testing Pokemon GO’s Nearby feature over the past few weeks and months. Primarily, those in San Francisco, California have had access. Niantic is using feedback gathered to improve the functionality.

Changes were made to the manner in which Nearby and Sightings works. Nearby in Pokemon GO now only shows if a PokeStop is close to your location.

Aside from Hawaii and Alaska, all states west of the Mississippi River can try out Nearby and Sightings. These features are also up across Australia in addition to select regions in Canada.

Head past the break for Niantic’s full message about Nearby and Sightings in Pokemon GO.

We’ve been hearing rumblings about Pokemon GO adding Ditto, and now it appears to be official. A ton of players are coming forward with claims that they’ve managed to capture the Pokemon.

Nabbing it works as you would expect. Pokemon that you catch will have a possibility of actually being Ditto.

Here’s one of many screenshots that have surfaced within the past few minutes:


It was thought that Ditto would soon be added to Pokemon GO after some signs were found within code of the latest update. We expect that Niantic will make an announcement soon now that players have spotted the Pokemon.


Between November 23 and November 30, Pokemon GO players will be given the opportunity to earn double the amount of XP and Stardust. Simply complete an in-game action during this period and you’ll be eligible for the bonus.

Over on the official Pokemon GO website, Niantic wrote the following about the promotion:

“It has been an incredible experience since we launched Pokémon GO a few short months ago in July. We are passionate about creating experiences that encourage exploration and promote exercise. We are humbled that hundreds of millions of you around the world have joined us on this journey. So we would like to say thank you – and what better way to say thank you than to celebrate our community.

So, starting November 23rd at 00:00 UTC and going through November 30th 00:00 UTC, we will double the amount of XP and Stardust you receive when completing in-game actions.”
