Pokémon Go developer Niantic thinks being the very best like no one ever was should include a bit of community cleanup in honor of this year’s upcoming Earth Day.
App developer Niantic has settled a lawsuit over a botched Pokémon GO festival in Chicago’s Grant Park in July 2017 for nearly $1.6 million, TechCrunch reported on Saturday.
After a few years of running around outside catching wild Pokémon, fans will soon have the opportunity to do the same with dinosaurs.
More than a year after its initial launch, Pokemon Go is often remembered for its rabid players that overwhelmed parks and swarmed streets looking for cute little pocket monsters. But people tend to forget that Pokemon Go was also many people’s first experience with augmented reality. And while today’s trainer count…
The Pokémon GO phenomenon has mostly faded, but the destruction left in its wake could be far larger than anyone imagined. Two professors from Purdue University have attempted to get an idea of the game’s effect on traffic accidents by studying data from one county in Indiana. The results don’t reflect well on Pikachu…
The pitch was Pokemon Go meets Call of Duty. I couldn’t quite fathom how that would turn into a cool as hell game, but it involved augmented reality, a key feature of Pokemon Go, and laser tag, and those are both very fun things. Then I sat down with the team from Skyrocket and got to actually hold one of the guns…
Ruslan Sokolovsky, a blogger who was arrested for played Pokémon Go in a Russian church, was found guilty today of charges ranging from “violating religious feelings” to illegal possession of a pen that contained a video camera.
Last month, a grown man in fluffy Pikachu jammies performed a manic routine from Hell on Russian state-controlled Channel 1, complete with Pokébabes and Pokéhunks dancing with giant prop iPhones, half-twerking and bouncing about on blow-up Pokéballs.
On Saturday, Russian officials announced that atheist vlogger Ruslan Sokolovsky has been detained for two months for “inciting hatred” and “insulting religious feelings” after posting a video of himself playing Pokémon Go inside a historic cathedral. He reportedly faces up to five years in jail if convicted.
This past weekend, many Pokemon Go gyms were rendered unplayable. Players trying to battle at sites like Big Ben were greeted not by a ‘mon but by an egg that glitched the game, protecting these gyms from being defeated. Eggs appeared in New York City, London, and elsewhere—and almost all of them were placed there by…
The producers of an upcoming live-action Pokémon movie have just caught themselves two writers with lots of experience points. They’re Nicole Perlman, co-writer of Guardians of the Galaxy and the upcoming Captain Marvel, along with Alex Hirsch, the creator of Disney’s hit show Gravity Falls.
Niantic Inc., the company behind that app you won’t stop hearing about Pokémon Go, has taken a stand against cheaters in the past, or anybody who violates its terms of service, such as sending out cease and desist letters to tracker apps. Now the company has stated that it will outright ban users for those violations.
Ever think all you see in Pokémon Go is that stupid Pidgey bird or that dumb Ekans snake one or that ugly Zubat? There’s a simple reason for this: they obviously get carpet bombed all over the Earth to clutter your map and drain your smartphone battery. Or at least, that’s what Nixolas imagines. His hilarious and…
Woah buddy it’s 10:30am on a Monday and this hungover blogger has something to get off his chest. After writing no fewer than 17 posts in the past few weeks about our nation’s newest craze, I have some sad news to report to you all: Pokémon Go is a bad, bad game.
Now that Niantic has taken a lot of the fun out of Pokémon Go, you have even fewer reasons to feel guilty about finding out-of-the-box ways to improve your game play (translation: cheating). A clunky 3D-printed smartphone case is one solution, but a finger-guiding invisible screen protector is a much better way to go.
While Pokémon Go has proven itself massively popular (duh) all over the world, some countries aren’t getting in on the action, or haven’t yet. However, one country announced today that it won’t be participating at all.
My kids aren’t playing Pokémon Go yet, but the older one had heard enough about it that he started reading up about it. When I looked at the screen after he’d been on the computer, I encountered this incredible wall of text:
What do Rio Olympians and New York state sex offenders have in common? Soon, neither will be playing Pokémon Go, or at least that’s the hope of Governor Andrew Cuomo.
