Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu / Let’s Go, Eevee!
Here’s two additional screenshots for Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu / Let’s Go, Eevee!:
Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu / Let’s Go, Eevee! (Switch) comes out on November 16th in Japan.
Soon, a new feature will be added to Pokémon GO: the PokéStop nomination system, which is going to enter its first beta. As the name implies, it will allow players to nominate locations for PokéStops in Pokémon GO.
At first, this beta will be limited to Level 40 Trainers in Brazil and South Korea. Said players will be able to nominate PokéStops by submitting photos and descriptions of the locations, and the submissions will be reviewed by “experienced users” in the Ingress Operation Portal Recon. You can find more details about the feature on the official website!
Naturally, the beta will be extended to other countries in the future.
Next: the Ultra Bonus event. During this event, Raid Battles last 1h30, and the eggs now give a 15 minute warning before hatching. Also, the Legendary Birds Pokémon know the special move they had during their respective event:
- Articuno: Hurricane
- Zapdos: Thundershock
- Moltres: Sky Attack
But that’s not all: new Shiny Pokémon can be found in-game, namely Shiny Geodude and Shin Grymer.
Finally, new boxes are available for purchase:
- Special Box (480 Coins): Incense x3, Incubator x4, Pinap Berry x10, Star Piece x2
- Great Box (780 Coins): Super Incubator x6, Premium Raid Pass x4, Star Piece x4, & Lure Module x2
- Ultra Box (1480 Coins): Incense (x6), Super Incubator (x12), Lucky Egg x6, Premium Raid Passes x8
Also, last week, Niantic announced that starting September 20th (1PM PT / 4PM ET / 9PM BST / 10PM CEST) / September 21st (5AM JST), Hyper Beam and Shadow Ball will become exclusive moves for Mewtwo caught in EX Raids. In other words, if you want your Mewtwo to know those moves without having to catch one from EX Raids, make sure to have it learn them before then!
