Pokemon Go is back on top of the App Store thanks to the latest update

21 Feb

Thanks to last week’s Generation 2 update, Pokemon Go is once again the highest grossing game on iTunes in the United States.


While number one on the App Store, Pokemon Go came in third on Google Play behind Mobile Strike and Game of War – Fire Age, respectively.

Pokemon Go hasn’t been number one on the App Store since its New Years event on January 4.

If you head over to mobile tracking site App Annie, using the drop down menu, you’ll find the game is still faring well in other regions of the world.

Last week’s update did more than just add over 80 new Pokemon, the update also increased rewards when catching evolved Pokemon, a new night mode map, gender-specific variations of select Pokemon, two new berries and Evolution items. We cover all of this and more in our updated Pokemon Go guide.

If you click the links above, you will also find the general notes for the update.

Pokemon Go Gen 2 Pokemon Evolution Guide – How to Evolve, Evolution Items

21 Feb

Pokemon Go Gen 2 Pokemon Evolution Guide to help you learn everything you need to know about evolving along with evolution items.

Niantic Labs has finally release generation 2 Pokemon for Pokemon Go. Players have access to generation 2 Pokemon but they need special items that would allow generation 1 Pokemon to generation 2.

However, players are having a hard time understanding how this works and what items they need to evolve certain times to generation 1 Pokemon to generation 2.

For more help on Pokemon Go, read out our Pokemon Types Farming Guide, How to Throw PokeBalls Properly, and How to Track Nearby Pokemon.

Pokemon Go gen 2 Pokemon evolution guide will help you understand what items to use and how the system works.

Pokemon Go Gen 2 Pokemon Evolution Guide

Developers have added Metal Coat, Sun Stone, Dragon Scale, Up-Grade and King’s Rock evolution items to Pokemon Go. You can get all of the above-mentioned items at the Pokeshop.  You can also get Nanab and Pinap, the two new berries. Keep in mind that getting these items at Pokeshop early on may not happen. Evolution items are rare so you need to be patient.

  • Metal Coat – Scyther – Scizor
  • Sun Stone – Gloom – Bellossom
  • Sun Stone – Sunkern – Sunflora
  • Up-Grade – Porygon – Porygon 2
  • King’s Rock – Slowbrow – Slowking
  • Metal Coat – Onix – Steelix
  • Dragon Scale – Seadra – Kingdra
  • King’s Rock – Poliwhirl – Politoed

Berries are much easier to find compared to evolution items. You can visit different Pokestops collecting berries. That is not the only way to get your hands on berries, you can do also earn them via level up rewards. Hopefully, Niantic Labs will adjust the drop rate for evolution items as they are extremely rare.

Pokemon Go is now available on iOS and Android devices.

Pokemon Go Guide: How to Unlock Umbreon and Espeon

21 Feb

Pokemon Go guide will help you get your hands on Umbreon and Espeon. For those who don’t know, Pokemon Go players now have access to gen 2 Pokemon. There are two Pokemon available right now, Umbreon and Espeon.

For more help on Pokemon Go, read out our Potions Guide, Combat Tips and Strategy Guide, and Lucky Eggs and Incubator Guide.

Pokemon Go guide will discuss how you can get your hands on Umbreon and Espeon. Keep mind that both will Evolve from Eevee so you need to find this Pokemon first.

Pokemon Go Guide

Eevee will evolve into Umbreon but first you need to name Eevee Tamao.  Meanwhile, those trying to make Eevee evolve into Espeon, name it Sakura. Keep in mind that this process will work only one time so make sure that Eevee you have is worth evolving.

Evolving the first Eevee you come across may not be the first idea as using Umbreon and Espeon in battle won’t be as effective. Being careful about which Eevee and when to evolve is very important as it will increase their efficiency in battle.

There are other ways to get these gen 2 Pokemon but this is the most convenient and quick process. Niantic Labs will keep adding more Pokemon to the mix so we will have more for you in the future.

Pokemon Go is now available on iOS and Android.

Pokemon Go: these new Evolution items are obtained at PokeStops – but the drop rate’s all over the place

18 Feb

The large Pokemon GO update this week not only brought with it 80 new monsters and customization options, but new Evolution Items as well. Apparently, they are also rather rare.


According to Nintendo Life, the new Evolution Items in Pokemon Go can be obtained at PokeStops, and currently there are five stone types:

  • Dragon Scale: Evolves Seadra into Kingdra
  • King’s Rock: Evolves Poliwhirl into Politoed / Slowpoke into Slowking
  • Metal Coat: Onix into Steelix / Scyther into Scizor
  • Sun Stone: Gloom into Bellossom / Sunkern into Sunflora
  • Upgrade: Porygon into Porygon2

These Evolution items are used to evolve the aforementioned Gen 1 Pokemon into Gen 2 creatures. However, the drop rate for the Evolution times seems to vary, hugely.

Over on reddit, some users report going to multiple PokeStops without obtaining a single Evolution item. One user said they spun over 250 times and went home empty handed, while another obtained one on their first PokeStop spin.

Along with Evolution items, there are two new berries at PokeStops which help players entice Pokemon: Nanab and Pinap.

The former slows the Pokemon down to make it easier to catch, while the latter doubles the candy handed over upon being caught. The drop rate on these berries is said to be much higher than the Evolution items.

In other words, keep trying and use those berries. It’s unknown if this intended programming on Niantic’s part, or if there is a balancing issue.

But at this point, it’s basically like rolling for loot in D&D: some have better luck than others.

Pokemon Go is getting a huge update that will add gameplay improvements and over 80 new Pokemon.

Pokemon Go developer Niantic has announced that it’ll be releasing a big update for the game this week that’ll bring updated encounter gameplay, new evolution options, new Berries, and more. More importantly, over 80 new Pokemon will also be added from Pokemon Gold & Silver.

Chikorita, Cyndaquil, and Totodile are among the new Pokemon. These will be found in the wild, not exclusively from eggs.

The Nanab Berry slows Pokemon movements, and the Pinap Berry doubles the amount of Candy received if the following catch attempt succeeds.

Trainer avatar items are also getting expanded, and you’ll be able to choose from a selection of new hats, shirts, pants, and other cosmetic items. Some will be available for purchase from the in-game store.

8 Feb

Valentine’s Day and Candy go hand-in-hand, and Niantic are making sure you get your fair share in the Pokémon Go Valentine’s Day event.

pokemon go valentines day event

Pokémon GO is still on one hell of a roll, becoming the fastest app to reach $1B in global revenue.

Niantic has been doing a good job of retaining players’ interest with reward events themed around various holidays.

Seeing as we’re hurtling towards mid-February, next up is Valentine’s Day, and this month’s event is a doozy.

Over the course of the event players will earn double the amount of Candy for catching, hatching, and transferring pokémon. Not only that, but Buddy pokémon will also find Candy twice as fast.

To help get those catch numbers up, Lure Modules will last for a whopping six hours during the event.

Don’t be surprised to see more pink pokémon floating around than usual as the encounter rate is up for all of them until the event wraps up. Plus Cleffa, Igglybuff, and Smoochum will be more likely to hatch from Eggs.

The Pokémon Go Valentine’s Day event kicks off today at 11AM PST/ 2PM EST/ 7PM GMT and closes on February 15 at 11AM PST/ 2PM EST/ 7PM GMT.

Pokemon Go becomes the fastest app to reach $1B in global revenue, up $500M in a single month

1 Feb

Pokemon Go cannot be stopped. Apparently it cannot even be slowed.


Pokemon Go has crossed off another major milestone by totting up $1 billion in gross global revenue.

That’s according to SensorTower, which also reports that Pokemon Go has set a record for being the app the reach $1 billion in the shortest amount of time – just short of seven months since its July 2016 release. To give you some context, Clash Royale is yet to reach $1 billion, although after ten months on the market it’s pretty close to it.

The last time we got an update, Pokemon Go topped $950 million in revenue. That data was for launch to the end of December 2016, so Pokemon Go has generated about $50 million in one month – and a month without a major seasonal event.

The report notes that Pokemon Go revenue topped out at $18 million in launch month, but income may be as high as $2.5 million a day, especially during events and around updates. We can probably expect some pretty sharp spikes in revenue if Pokemon Go introduces Generation 2 Pokemon, something we’ve all been expecting for a while now.

Dang, Pokemon Go: leave some money for the rest of us. You can only Scrooge McDuck around in it for so long before you get bored, right?

Pokemon Go dataminers find code for gen-two Pokemon Unown, 38 moves, five new evolution items

18 Jan

The latest update for Pokemon Go has been datamined, and it appears new moves and more second generation Pokemon are on the docket.


According to the data poured over by The Silph Road, 38 news moves, more Avatar customizations, gym radius tweaks, support for Evolution items, more Shiny Pokemon and Pokemon genders, and new Pokemon forms for gen-two Psychic-type Unown were also found.

The Evolution items seems to suggest gen-two versions of current Pokemon are in the works. For example, the Sun Stone evolves Gloom into Bellossom; Sunkern into Sunflora; Cottonee into Whimsicott; Petilil into Lilligant; and turns Helioptile into Heliolisk.

Other items besides the Sun Stone found in the files include: King’s Rock, Metal Coat, Dragon Scale and Upgrade. If you are unfamiliar with these, or need a refresher, hit up Bulbapedia.

Unown is a rather interesting entry,as the Pokemon has a from for each letter of the alphabet along with an exclamation point and question mark. The forms noted in the files are: Unown A-C, Z, question mark and exclamation point. One entry doesn’t contain any information.

A new button seems to be in the works for the in-game menu which will take users to a News section and three new sponsor codes were found (PAN, BBQ, FRYER), suggesting more PokeStops are on the way. Your guess is as good as ours as to which companies these symbols stand for (Panera Bread? Famous Dave’s? KFC? – who knows).

Be sure to look over the full post from The Silph Road for more information.

Pokemon Go revenues hit $950 million during its five months on the market last year

18 Jan

Pokemon Go made tons of money last year, which you deduced by the headline. But, you knew that already, regardless.


According to a new report from mobile market firm App Annie, via VentureBeat, the Niantic Labs-developed Pokemon Go generated $950 million in revenue from July-December 2016.

“By attracting millions of non-gamers, it reached a level of success that eludes even some of the most successful traditional video games,” reads the report. “This was thanks to the game’s beloved intellectual property, simple mechanics, real-world augmented reality gameplay, and perhaps most of all, its social nature.”

In August, app optimization and marketing blog Sensor Tower reported the game had earned $160 million in revenue since one month post launch. By October, per figures reported by App Annie, Pokemon Go become the fastest mobile game to reach $600 million in revenues.

Pokemon Go was also the most downloaded game on Android and iOS last year. It didn’t generate the most revenue, though, as it came in third behind Monster Strike and Clash Royale, respectively.

Today, Pokemon Go was updated to version 0.53.1 on Android and 1.23.1 on iOS, and while it improved GPS tracking and applied other fixes, there wasn’t any new content made available.

However, dataminers looked over the files which suggest more second generation Pokemon are on the way.

Niantic has promised more new features on a more regular basis, so hopefully Pokemon Go players will be trying to catch, or hatch rather, more second-gen creatures soon.

Pokemon Go launched in limited markets on July 6, 2016 before slowly rolling out to other regions.

Pokemon Go update improves GPS tracking and makes some fixes, but no new features or content this time

18 Jan

Pokemon Go has been updated, but it’s pretty boring.

pokemon go

Pokemon Go has been updated on all platforms, bringing it to version 0.53.1 on Android and 1.23.1 on iOS.

The update is, unfortunately, not very exciting – no new Pokemon Go features or event content. The biggest change is an improvement to GPS tracking, which now accounts for drift.

Oh, and there’s a handy fix for those of you using your Apple Watch to play Pokemon Go, which must be someone, right?

Here’s are the latest, pretty boring Pokemon Go patch notes:

  • Updated Apple Watch to display Eggs obtained from PokéStops
  • Changed distance tracking to better account for GPS drift
  • Minor text fixes.
