Pokémon Go plans to keep players around by increasing level cap to 50

Pokémon Go plans to keep players around by increasing level cap to 50

Pokémon Go might not be as popular as it once was, but there are still plenty of trainers out there catching 'em all. Now the game has announced tweaks that should help make the leveling up process more fun than ever, as well as allow for players to reach up to level 50 — although that won't be easy to do.

Pokémon Go now lets you transfer your pocket monsters to other games

Pokémon Go now lets you transfer your pocket monsters to other games

Pokémon Go might not be as popular as it was at launch, but it still has a massive player base across Android and iOS. However, you've never been able to transfer Pokémon caught in Go to other games, even though official transfer tools (starting with Pokémon Bank) have existed for years. Thankfully, that's finally changing.

Pokémon Go removes some temporary bonuses introduced due to COVID-19

Pokémon Go removes some temporary bonuses introduced due to COVID-19

Remember Pokémon Go? The global phenomenon came to Android in 2016 and was downloaded from the Play Store over a million times in a single month. Players have kept on "catching 'em all" since then, with Niantic making some temporary changes to the game earlier this year due to the pandemic. Now it looks like some of those changes are going permanent — but others are vanishing faster than a wild Rattata.

Pokémon Unite is a new MOBA coming to Android, iOS, and Nintendo Switch

Pokémon Unite is a new MOBA coming to Android, iOS, and Nintendo Switch

The Official Pokémon YouTube channel has announced a new Pokémon game for Android, iOS, and the Nintendo Switch. It's called Pokémon Unite, and it's a MOBA. As you would expect, you'll be tasked with collecting Pokémon as part of the MOBA's team-based online-multiplayer battle arena gameplay. Unsurprisingly, Pokémon Unite is being developed in partnership with Tencent, so I fully expect the game to land as a blatant cash grab, just like Pokémon Café Mix. Clearly, The Pokemon Company is intent on running this franchise through the mud, just so long as it can make a quick buck with lazy clones on mobile.

Returning to Pokémon Go in 2020: What's new, different, and improved

Returning to Pokémon Go in 2020: What's new, different, and improved

The summer of 2016 was a strange time to be outdoors. Every public space was jam-packed with people playing Pokémon Go. After the initial hype died down, Niantic continued adding new features, and the experience is very different today. With many of us at home and looking for ways to pass the time, there's an understandable desire to return to the familiar. However, it can be daunting to get back into Pokémon Go after four years of changes. There are tons more Pokémon, a completely revamped gym system, and even remote raids. Here's what returning Pokémon Go players can expect in 2020.

Pokémon Rumble Rush is shutting down on July 22

Pokémon Rumble Rush is shutting down on July 22

Pokémon Rumble Rush hasn't even been available in the US for a year yet (since it was originally released in the West in May 2019), and The Pokémon Company has already announced that it will close the game on July 22nd, 2020. Pokémon Rumble Rush clearly had issues during development, which is why it was originally known as Pokéland back in 2017, promptly falling off the map until 2019 when it reappeared under the new name, but was still under development. Once Pokémon Rumble Rush was officially launched across the globe in May 2019, it was clear the title was released as a cash grab to soak up money before the developer completely abandoned it, which we now know will take place this July.

Pokémon GO will expand online PvP battles with a new ranked league in 2020 (Update: First season March 13)

Pokémon GO will expand online PvP battles with a new ranked league in 2020 (Update: First season March 13)

Pokémon GO got a little closer to its established universe when Pokémon trading was added to the game, which was soon followed by player versus player (PvP) Trainer Battles. Players are required to be within close physical proximity — or have a certain friendship level for battle — to use either feature. Niantic plans to get rid of this limit, at least for trainer fights, with the upcoming GO Battle League that will pair you with an opponent, regardless of their location

Pokémon Home lets you share your Pokémon across multiple devices and games (Update: Out now, APK download)

Pokémon has been an international phenomenon ever since it populated the early Game Boys. By now, the franchise has become considerably more cross-platform, with Pokémon GO available on Android and iOS and Pokémon Let's Go on the Nintendo Switch. At a press conference on Tuesday, the company behind the games announced Pokémon Home, the missing link between its games: It allows trainers to bring over their favorite pocket monsters from one platform to another for the first time (well, wirelessly anyway).

The Pokémon GO team has announced today that Pokémon GO will receive an update that brings new Pokémon from the Unova region (Pokémon Black and Pokémon White).

New shinies are also expected, and the Unova Stone makes its first appearance, which will allow specific Pokémon to evolve.
