I am back - Pokemon go summer recap

Image
Hey readers, I am back. well I went on summer vacay and to my surprise. There were no devices and I can't blog from a phone. Plus i needed to get closer to my family. You know how it is.  Plus me and my friends got our YouTube channel up and running. It is on https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHrTc5KFyaykl925sEXxJ2A

Time to recap all I have missed.
New Gym System

Prestige has been scrapped and there is a new system known as motivation. If you claim a gym, your pokemon will have a motivation bar. its motivation is directly linked with its CP. So if the pokemon's motivation reduces so does it's cp.

So how does the cp reduce? Simple, an opponent battles your pokemon. And it also drops slightly over time. So let's say you place a 2000 cp gyrados in a gym. He's left alone for two days and his motivation has reduced to 1890. A tyranitar beats him up and his motivation (and cp) becomes 1450. He will then become easier to beat.

Though you can help your team by feeding a pok…

Blog Times

As you may know I am a really busy person. I might not get the chance to blog alot. So I will only be blogging on the weekends.

To make it up to you guys, I will make three posts every weekend. Even though I do want you to be up to date on the latest news I just can't find enough time. Bear with me.

Pokemon Go Fest

Image
Wow, it has been so long, I have learnt a lot from playing pokemon go. Met new people, made new friends, saw new places, explored  new regions, caught new pokemon, evolved new pokemon, and much more. 
As the one year anniversary draws closer, we begin to wonder, what does niantic have in store for us? So join me as I do a special blog series known as 'Pokemon Go: A year to remember'
They are starting things with a Fire and Ice event (also known as the Solstice event) is the first event to be celebrated. 
This event was leaked earlier, and I didn't post it because I don't like 'sources'. Since they have won my favour for correctly leaking about four or five events i will post it if they have any other info.
Since summer is approaching the northern hemisphere and winter is approaching the southern hemisphere, they decided a fire and ice event will be appropriate.
It starts from today the 13th of June till the 20th. As you may have guessed there will be increased…

Lame Lockdown

Image
There have been several ways to punish cheaters, soft bans, permanent bans, the occasional mii character who shouts at you, but pokemon go just topped the charts.

Now if you are caught cheating you shall be shadowbanned. Niantic has a new automated system which can easily differentiate between how to punish you.

For those of you G.P.S guys no more soft bans, now either perma bans or shadow bans.

But what is the mysterious shadowban. Well, while everyone else sees a tyranitar, you see a pidgey. Cruel right.

It makes you unable to see strong pokemon and leaves you with thrash. That is complete evil, like wow, i mean, WOW. But how do you know if you've been shadowbanned?
How to tell if you've been shadowbanned
The easiest and most obvious way is through this warning. I mean, come on that is just an indirect way of saying, Haha you were cheating and we caught you! Now prepare for pidgey filled torture.

Another way incase you still want another reason instead of the super obvious w…

Promo Codes

Image
Hey viewers, you know me, bringing you the latest news. Sadly this time it is the latest as in I am late. I never found out but ever since May 2. There have been promo codes in the game.
I don't mean in data mines, they have already been implemented. That's right you can go down and get a promo code, to get some free stuff.... Wait, no codes have been released. There are currently no available promo codes.
Another downside is that for now it is Android only. That's because of legal issues with Apple. Though I suspect Apple users will be able to redeem promo codes online.
To get to the promo code section go to the store and scroll to the bottom.
"Pokémon GO occasionally offers promotional codes through our partnerships and special events. Promo codes can be used to redeem items such as Poké Balls, Lure Modules, Lucky Eggs, and more." That's what the pokemon company said.
There is a high probability that what's gonna happen is, you buy something at McDonald…

Adventure Time

Image
First of all, that was not a reference to the T.V series Adventure Time. The title is about woohoo!
Another event! But before I continue I would like you to know that me and a couple of my friends are making a YouTube channel named "BlueCammo" it's not yet ready but the YouTube channel is setup and all that remains is to post a video.

Without further ado, introducing Pokemon Go's very own. Adventure Week!


So many stuff are happening right now! So grab your boots, bag, snacks, and water and go out and adventure.

Now the good stuff, all that is going to happen, keep in mind  adventure week starts from  May 18 to May 25, 2017. It's a week long event. Unlike the grass event that lasted a few days.

So to get that sweet sweet pokeball stack pokestops now give more items, and are half off in the store.

As someone who lives in a Pokestop free environment and I have to go about six kilometers to get a few pokeballs, now the journey will be worth it.

I love pokeballs they …

Best Team in pokemon go

Image
Yes, I am serious. Many blogs beat around the bush but I am going to get a chainsaw and annihilate that bush. I am sorry bush!

So here are our contestants.

Team Mystic
Team Valor
Team Instinct

To truly tell who is the best I won't be using opinion. I will be using information. Let's analyze the contestants.

But before that please remember that it's your faith that counts, if you believe that your team is the best then your team is the best.

I will be judging them on these key subjects. Number of gyms ruled, strongest fighters, strongest defenders, how easy it is to place your pokemon to defend there.

Now lets analyze,
First up is,
Team Mystic



Team mystic is led by Blanche, Blanche uses science to study pokemon. Blanche is very serious towards her study and she focuses on evolution. Mystic has the highest number of players because of three key reasons. Number 1, the color. Blue is the most popular color in the world.

It has been proven that if you were to choose between sev…

Blooming Bonanza

Image
Grass type event. Well it is spring. I saw it coming, did you? Ok I lied i never saw anything coming but there could be more to this. We know that there are are monthly events but why now. Making an event this early means players will get bored longer.

It's illogical. It makes no sense, like trying to lick your elbow. Please don't try it, I went on a three hour elbow licking marathon. Let's just say I never licked my elbow.

So pokemon go obviously needs its players back, otherwise it shall turn into a fad that will soon get an e. It will fade.

If it fades away I will have to close the blog and and and... I am overreacting here. Back to the point, it needs something new, something inspiring something to get that groove. So far it's been having mini events and a few major events like gen 2 and stuff.


Mini events were like the magikarp shiny event and now micro events. Micro events don't add new game play. They are just brief intervals for fun. So that might hint at m…

Spoofer block and how to get past it

Image
Sorry I'm late, I got an aggressive schedule. I have been working on an amazing side project. Its a secret.

Pokemon go as we all know is constantly being hacked. You may be a hacker, I may be a hacker. I assure you i'm not a hacker. I kinda take that stuff offensive cause I have to be playing fair and square while someone moves a joystick.

So spoofers everywhere got well, banned. I know a guy who hacks i'll ask him to see if he's banned. You didn't here this from me but I hope he is banned.

Since a lot has happened I am going to make this section quite short. So spoofers have gotten a huge hit. Niantic closed down a bunch of third party apps and updated the security making it even harder to access the game's files.

This was because of the extremely high number of cheaters that are playing. I estimated forty percent of all players are currently cheating, and another twenty percent have cheats every once in a while or has cheated before.

Come on, hacking is in my…

Co-Op coming

Image
“I hope you are looking forward to this huge event this Summer” Niantic general manager said. Their engineers are working extra hard he said.

Trading, PvP, and raids are among co-op features that are coming. Raids are when multiple players come together to face legendaries and get rewarded for it
Trading and PvP are reportedly coming out this spring and I think those will be awesome ideas. But you know niantic just wants us to come together which I respect.

So don't be suprised if you just see everyone in your neighbourhood staring at their phones cause pokemon go is coming back!

Legendaries might be somewhat unfair but hey that's what makes em legends. Their power!

Though PvP and trading seem to be a better option than trading because of how they are more likely to be used while raids seem to be something that happens every once in a while.

There is also regional discrimination where raids might only happen in places  like the U.S while other regions are left out.

That will be very …

Easter Eggstragavanza (Late)

Image
Sorry I am so late, Hey spending Easter with your family is more important than blogging. So pokemon go had that easter event afterall. I saw that coming.

With recent drops in players they need more events. Come on before you know it there will be a bush event. Where they celebrate bushes. So sad, the bush uprising is coming and we don't even see it.

Anyway, The Easter event offers bonuses such as,


Just two days left, but on the bright side.... Fine there isn't a bright side about being late. So, we'll I hope you aren't mad at me.

Don't worry it won't happen again. Back to the point,
Aerodactyl (usually 10km)DunsparceEevee (usually 5km)Elekid (usually 5km)Girafarig (usually 5km)Grimer (usually 5km)Growlithe (usually 5km)Koffing (usually 5km)Lapras (usually 10km)Lickitung (usually 5km)Magby (usually 5km)Miltank (usually 10km)Onix (usually 5km)Phanphy (usually 5km)Rhyhorn (usually 5km)Scyther (usually 5km)Shellder (usually 5km)Shuckle (usually 5km)Skarmory (usuall…

Leaked info, more features coming

Image
Hi guys, i was just reading blogs here and there,  then I checked silph road and realized there is something I didn't know in the newest update code.

Apparently there are new features coming, most of have to do with gym battling and we know that John Hanke already promised there will be a major gym revamp. So this is probably the beginning.

Based on this more updates to come will most likely contain more gym battling code like this, plus trust me don't go looking for the code it's highly illegal. Don't risk it.

So the new features are actually just new phrases that hint at something big to come, they are so little but the posibilities are so big.

The phrases are,
“(Pokémon name) has fought hard and returned!” “(Pokémon name) lost a battle!” “(Pokémon name) defended the Gym!”
“(Pokémon name) is hungry!” “(Pokémon name) needs a pick-me-up!” “(Pokémon name) wants a berry!”
“There’s a raid about to start near you!” “A raid’s going to start nearby!” Yep, that's a lot of…

Pokemon go faces downfall

Image
Things haven't been so good for pokemon go as it's daily users had dropped from 28.5 million to 5 million. As reported by recode.

I can't believe it, you can't believe it, but yet we still saw it coming. Back in July things were up and awesome, but now things are kinda meh. Well there are a bunch of stuff the game needs.

It's too early for a revamp but the game needs new features. I'm not say it ain't fun I'm just saying the same thing over and over for almost a year.

Niantic  promised to introduce several new features. There are meant to be 3 more stuff. So based on my calculations the next one is coming on either May or June.



Niantic revealed that even with their drop they still have 65 million players per month.

So on behalf of my favourite game please just go to a park or something and whip out your phone.

Cause' I known they haven't been in their A game but minecraft has only 55 million players per month. So come on, they deserve more views…

The Origins

Image
While pokemon go was obviously based on ingress their origins lie deeper. The beginning of pokemon go started with a prank! Yep a little gag, a funny trick. But wait are you saying a million dollars started because of a prank?
Yes that's exactly what i'm telling you.

Many of those who work in niantic are actually people who used to work in Google, because the type of mapping tech google uses will be useful for AR games.

But it wasn't just any prank, it was an April Fool's prank. You see for me blogging on April fool's can be what's the word, oh ya, terrible. Misleading titles, fake posts, and the youtube videos are even worse.

Though youtube videos lie a lot already, I mean haven't you seen those videos where they day watch a full movie meanwhile they just say click the link in the description.

Let's get back to the point, pokemon go is a prank. Need proof, oh whatever I say you won't believe me. I feel so sad!!😣  Wait, will the Google team convinc…

Magikarp's time to shine

Image
There is now a pokemon go water festival and too me they chose bad timing. Well does this sound like a good idea, you just finished freezing from winter and they just out of nowhere said go get a magikarp inside your pool it's shiny!

 Hold up, magikarp is shiny! Yep, shinnies are now in pokemon go. Shiny bulbasaur , shiny squirtle, shiny wait a second! It's just magikarp.

The only pokemon that's shiny is magikarp. Does that make shinnies good or bad? The answer good, u know why? 'Cause' of shiny, [drum roll] GYARADOS! Yep, we can find shiny gyaradoss, gyarodoses, gyaradi?

Shinnies are cool but their only use is telling your friend look my magikarp is golden!, thought that's still awesome. Magikarp is regarded as useless, so i guess this their time to SHINE. Magikarp has constantly  been rejected by players, but ironically everyone is crazy for it's evolved form gyarados.

The best part is, also gyarados(I found out that is both singular and plural) are shiny.

All that has happened so far

Image
Sorry for not blogging, I have been busy. To apologize I will make one giant blog posts about everything that happened while I was gone.
First of all its;
Where is Smeargle and Delibird.
Out of the new gen 2, two pokemon who aren't legendaries aren't in the game yet. The first is smeargle. Smeargle's name comes from smear(to stain or smudge something) and beagle(a type of dog which smeargle is based of). From that you can tell he is a painter. So the reason he isn't out is because he as the move sketch which copies the last move an opponent played. So he could as well be the new ditto. Yep, we got another copycat, Let's get the flamethrower 'cause' we ain't going through that ditto turning into my gyrados and beating me again. Smeargle is probably going to come out on April 15 which is art day. Seeing as how niantic does that a lot it'll make sense. On a second thought that might be what niantic wants me to think so if it does com out on art day I wa…

More new features are coming

Image
We all are excited about  gen 2. The thing is its fading quickly. Why?! Cause of niantic! Remember when the baby pokemon came in, you know how we got bonuses, multipliers, increased odds, a new loading screen art! That was just for 7 pokemon.

Because of how niantic celebrated and gave players more reason to play it took us flying. With 80 new pokemon niantic did nothing. They took a dish gave us our food with no bonuses or tiny umbrella in our drink then they ask for tips.

Imagine giving a baby a spoon of food then that baby smiles, you will want to give him more, but if that baby takes a bowl of food without doing anything you will just be blank. That's what's happening.

With that going on you may wonder what's next? John Hanke has an answer,
A few days ago, Niantic CEO John Hanke gave a speech in Spain where he announced that there would be three major updates for Pokemon GO in 2017, with each of these updates expected to be as large as the recent Gen 2 update.

Pokemon Day and region exclusives

Pokemon Day!
Tomorrow is the one day of the year dedicated to our little fuzzy pocket monsters. It has gone from red to ash, mega evolution to z moves, gen 1 to gen 2. This is the best thank you pokemon.

Gen 2 tips and tricks

Image
Hey guys, sorry about not blogging lately gen 2 got me all mixed up! So without further a do!

Umbreon And Espeon
We probably know by now that to get evee into vaporeon you name it rainer, flareon is pyro, jolteon is sparky. What about our gen 2 eveelutions umbreon and espeon. Well if you watched the pokemon anime series you might know a trainer named Sakura or one named Tamao. Well, give yourself a patt on the back, you wasted 20 years of year life! (dun, dun, duuuun). Back to the point Name Eevee “Sakura” to evolve it into Espeon
Name Eevee “Tamao” to evolve it into Umbreon. Yep, just like the three evee brothers sakura and tamao originated from the anime. Wait a second! Didn't Ash's pokedex once say evee can only evolve into jolteon, flareon, or vaporeon back in the indigo league! Ash needs to get a refund cause that 'dex' is broken.

Gen 2 increase
Well by now you probably have some gen 2 pokemon but the thing is there is an increased chance of finding them. To test this…
