Pokemon Go creator Niantic has thrown a curveball and surprised players with a massive Community Weekend celebrating the year of events. The weekend will take place on Friday November 30 and, as the community have found out, all of the Community Day-specific Pokemon combine. This means you will see Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, Pikachu, Eevee, Dratini, Chikorita, Cyndaquil, Mareep, Larvitar, and Beldum in the wild. Players will see an increase in the Shiny versions of these Pokemon all weekend too rather than just the normal three hour timeframe. There will also be a mini event on December 1 from 10am until 1pm where you will receive Double Catch XP, Double Catch Stardust and Double Incubator effectiveness. As usual lures will last the duration of the event. The Exclusive move for all Pokemon will be available, so make sure you are IV checking as you go and save your best ones to evolve before the event ends. Do not panic too much however, as you have until 9pm on Sunday December 2. … [Read more...] about Pokemon Go December Community Weekend bonanza has treats in store for players
4 Hot off the rip-roaring success of Pokémon Go, the mobile app that had kids of all ages prowling the streets in search of the cutesy pocket monsters, here is the Switch console’s Pokémon Let’s Go. It is a bridge of sorts; both to its colourful pop-up book world of Kanto and between that mobile phenomenon and Pokémon RPGs that made Pikachu and co’s name. And it has been no secret that Let’s Go has been developed as that link between old and new players. For the old, a nostalgia-fuelled distraction in a refreshed version of Pokémon Yellow. For the new, a breezy introduction to the minutiae of Pokémon training. A new ‘core’ Pokémon game lands in late 2019 and developer Game Freak wants as many players primed as possible. Fans? Gotta catch ‘em all. It is an important distinction to make and one that makes Pokémon Let’s Go a tricky game to pin down. Let’s Go follows your Pokémon trainer … [Read more...] about Pokémon Let’s Go review: Is new Switch game next step for Pokémon Go players?
GOOGLE has delivered another amazing handset in the Pixel 3 XL - but can it go toe-to-toe with the likes of the iPhone XR, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, the Galaxy S9, or any of 2018's other biggest launches? By Dom Peppiatt / Published 10th November 2018 Pixel 3 XL Review: Google's flagship may be the BEST phone you can get in 2018 (Pic: DS) Google has come a long way since the launch of the original Pixel phone some three years ago.Ever since the company moved away from relying on manufacturers such as Samsung and Motorola to provide its handsets, Google has seen a steady increase in quality, and is not delivering tech that rivals even Apple and the flagship iPhone brands.The Google Pixel 3 XL - released earlier this week - is definitive proof that Google can stand toe-to-toe with the biggest and best phone manufacturers out there.Despite the criticism the handset has drawn thanks to the notch forever stuck at the top of the screen, we're confident in saying the Pixel 3 XL … [Read more...] about Pixel 3 XL Review: Google’s flagship may be the BEST phone you can get in 2018
