Los Angeles police officers Louis Lozano and Eric Mitchell have been fired for “willfully abdicating their duty to assist a commanding officer’s response to a robbery in progress and playing a Pokemon mobile game while on duty.”

That game is, of course, Pokemon GO. All sorts of bizarre and crazy stories have come about relating to the mobile experience since it launched in 2016, but we haven’t quite seen something on this level.

Pokemon GO Mega Aerodactyl

Mega Aerodactyl will be making its first appearance in Pokemon GO, Niantic revealed today.

The company is gearing up for a new Mountains of Power event, which continues the Season of Heritage. Niantic teases: “Spark’s intuition leads him to believe that the mysterious door’s second mechanism requires the help of Rock- and Steel-type Pokémon to unlock it. Journey through terrain reminiscent of the mountains found in regions like Johto and Sinnoh, and work with Spark to unlock the next mechanism!”

Pokemon GO Bulbasaur Classic Community Day

Niantic has announced a special Community Day Classic for Pokemon GO that will feature Bulbasaur. This is being held during the Season of Heritage.

Those that evolve Ivysaur (Bulbasaur’s Evolution) during the Community Day or up to two hours afterward will receive a Venusaur that knows the Charged Attack Frenzy Plant.

That Shiny Pokemon in question is Hoothoot, who will show up if you’re lucky enough. The creature will also appear as noncostumed Shiny Hoothoot after the event ends.
