Niantic refutes claims of dwindling revenue, reaffirms Pokemon Go’s robust performance

Company claims a recent report stating otherwise is “inaccurate.” Niantic Labs has denied a report that Pokemon Go revenue is down to its lowest since 2018. Yesterday, reported March revenue for Pokemon Go was down to $42.8 million, compared to $58 million in February. It also reported that April revenue dropped even further to $34.7 million. Season 10: Rising Heroes in Pokemon Go is live through June 1. That figure would make Niantic’s total monthly total the lowest it’s been since February 2018, according to the data gleaned from AppMagic. Niantic has denied the report, called it “inaccurate,” and…

Pokemon Go Remote Raid Pass changes are coming, and prices are going up

The rumors were unfortunately true. Niantic Labs is changing how Remote Raid Passes work in Pokemon Go, and looking over rumblings on the internet, it seems many players are none too happy about it. Starting on April 6, the price of a pack of three Remote Raid Passes will cost you 525 PokeCoins instead of 300 PokeCoins – a 75% price increase. Prices of single Raid Passes are also increasing and soon will run you 195 PokeCoins instead of 100 PokeCoins – a 95% increase.

With Ash’s story wrapped up, Pokemon: Horizons will keep the anime rolling

Ash’s time in the Pokemon anime has finally come to an end in Japan, and a trailer for the new series, Pokemon Horizons, sets up the adventures to come. We’ve known for a while now that Ash Ketchum, our beloved protagonist who caught barely any Pokemon, would no longer be the protagonist of the Pokemon anime. The final episode of Pokemon Journeys: The Series (the full title of the last season) has aired in Japan, bringing Ash’s story to a close, and likely a teary eye to many who grew up with the world’s best Pokemon trainer. But there’s a…

A couple of bug researchers have named a cockroach after a Pokemon

Obviously it’s a bug type. A new cockroach just dropped, and the pair of entomologists that discovered it have named it after a bug-type Pokemon. Pokemon, obviously, are not real. That’s probably a good thing considering the animal rights issues that would be at play, but it would be nice to have a pet Grubbin, they’re just such a funny lil critter. While Pokemon might not be real, that doesn’t mean there aren’t living creatures with Pokemon names, as just recently a newly documented cockroach was named after Pheromosa, a bug-fighting type Pokemon (yes I know it’s technically an Ultra…

Detective Pikachu movie sequel takes a step forward by hiring a director

No confirmation on what the film will be about, though. Detective Pikachu 2, the movie, not the game, might finally be on the way, as a director might finally be attached to the project. According to Deadline, Portlandia co-creator Jonathon Krisel is currently in talks to direct the untitled live-action Detective Pikachu sequel from Legendary Entertainment. Deadline also reports that Chris Galletta, writer of The Kings of Summer, is attached to pen the screenplay for the Pokemon film. Very little else is known about the project though, but it’s been a long time in the making, as the first film…

Pokemon Trading Card Game Classic is a stroke of genius

Revisiting the classic Pokemon TCG experience with a premium new set may seem like an odd move, but it’s a very, very canny one. Let’s not mince words. Pokemon is ultimately for children. A lot of us grown-ups love it, yes, but this isn’t one of those game franchises that has sort of ‘grown up’ with its audience while trying to simultaneously appeal to older fans, like Final Fantasy or Zelda. This is a franchise in a perpetual Peter Pan-like state of adolescence. Catch the debut of Pokemon Trading Card Game Classic here. If you know this scene, it’s pure…

Over 230 familiar Pokemon not present in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet will be encountered in the DLC

These Pokemon will appear in Part 1: The Teal Mask and Part 2: The Indigo Disk, none of which have appeared in either game. Nintendo has decided not to provide a list of the returning Pokemon, as it wants you to find out for yourself by playing the game.
