Pokemon Go’s April Community Day returns to a three-hour event, stars Stufful

Niantic is bringing Community Day back to a pre-pandemic timeframe. The April Pokemon Go Community Day will be the first Community Day event since the pandemic started to last only three hours instead of six. According to Niantic, it is shifting back to a three-hour event because apparently only 5% of players particpate for more than three hours. Also, the company said people aren’t out and about at the same time with the longer event, which apparently doesn’t foster a sense of community as less people are around at the same time to “play together and connect outside.” “In 2020,…

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet: release date, trailer, gameplay, news, and more

Here’s everything we know about the next Pokemon game. Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are the next big games in the beloved monster-hunting series. These are being developed by none other than Game Freak, the trusted stalwart of mainline Pokemon games. The Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield entries released at the end of 2019 gave us the first real open-world, 3D Pokemon adventure fans had been clamouring for for many years. And after the success of the recent Pokemon Legends Arceus entry, Scarlet and Violet continue this trend of giving us deep, expansive adventures in the world of Pokemon. Pokemon Scarlet…

Pokemon Go Community Days for March through May dated

And there’s plenty to do while you wait. Niantic Labs has announced the dates for the next three Pokemon Go Community Days. While the featured Pokemon have yet to be revealed, it’s at least nice to know when the Community Days are coming so we can make plans ahead of time. However, the buzz around the internet points to either Chespin, Fennekin, or Froakie being the March Community Day Pokemon. But, since Niantic has yet to announce the Pokemon, it’s all just collective guessing at this point. Here are the dates for the next three Community Days: Sunday, March 13;…

Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl are faithful, basic remakes – for better and worse

The latest pair of Pokemon Remakes are perhaps the most faithful do-overs in the series yet, keeping things simple and changing little. Over the last few years, Pokemon has taken a few interesting detours. We’ve seen the series experiment with getting rid of the traditional gym battle structure, with open-world design, and famously with jettisoning some older Pokemon from the current playable Pokedex. Some of these changes fans have loved, some they’ve understood, and some they’ve criticized. The latest small adjustment to series traditions comes in its newest pair of remakes – which are a little different to those we’ve…
