Water Festival Event 2018 has seriously knocked my socks off!

Trainers,
It’s time to make a splash! Our Water Festival returns June 7 at 1:00 p.m. PDT, with Water-type Pokémon such as Magikarp and Wailmer appearing more frequently in the wild. Some lucky Trainers may even encounter a rare Shiny Shellder for the very first time during the event! Plus, enjoy Field Research tasks highlighting Water-type Pokémon until June 21 at 1:00 p.m. PDT.

Alongside increased appearance of Water-type Pokémon appearing all over the world, you’ll be able to earn 3× Stardust for catching Water-type Pokémon. Plus, 2 km Eggs will hatch exciting Pokémon such as Totodile, Mudkip, and Corphish—earn Double Candy and Stardust for every Egg hatched!

Raid Battles will also feature powerful Water-type Pokémon for the duration of the celebration, including the exciting return of the Legendary Pokémon Kyogre. And, if you challenge Kyogre during the event and come out victorious, there is a chance you’ll encounter its Shiny form!

So Trainers, dive on in to this water-focused event before it ends on June 21!

Trainers,

Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! are coming to the Nintendo Switch in November 2018! Once released, Pokémon originally discovered in the Kanto region that you have caught in Pokémon GO can be brought into these two new Nintendo Switch games. In celebration of this announcement, Alolan Exeggutor will now appear all over the world in Pokémon GO! This is the first Alolan form of a Pokémon originally discovered in the Kanto region to arrive in Pokémon GO. Keep an eye out for this Pokémon’s tall and stately presence all over the world, where it will appear more often for a limited time.

Funny story…

I had to work late last night, and WhySoSalty was chilling at home.  After I got home, we ate dinner and watched a bit of Doctor Who.
I opened my PoGo (which I hadn’t played for most of the day due to work) and saw there was a forced update.  I do the update and open the game…
and **GASP!** “Alolan Exeggutor!  Come on, let’s go play!”

So we rush out in our pajamas and slippers, at 10:30pm, and go catch like 40 something Alolan Exeggutors each.

We also got some funny AR+ pics.  Maybe we’ll show you those sometime…

I hope you all are getting these Exeggutors!

Ummmmmm, who else is excited about this unexpected announcement??!?!?!!!

Ho-Oh Back in Raids!

Ho Oh is back in raids and better than ever! This time it returns as a possible shiny! Starting today he will appear along side Latios and Latias in Level 5 eggs. If they keep the same format as shiny Lugia release then when you encounter a shiny it will have %100 catch rate. With that in mind make sure you pinap it so you are sure to get those extra candies! Good luck finding a shiny everyone! Happy raiding!!

New Boxes Available in the Shop!

I have reviewed the contents of all 3 available boxes. Honestly all of them are a great value. Each box has lucky eggs, super incubators, and ultra balls, but all of them have a unique item for the 4th one. Make your decision based off what items you are lacking on the most. Star pieces – community day box, incense – great box, and finally raid passes – ultra box.

Now if you are looking for the best bang for your buck then the ultra box is definitely the way to go! If you look at it this way you are getting super incubators at regular incubator price and then getting all the other items for free!! HippoChick and I decided to get ultra boxes ourselves to go ahead and stock up on those sweet incubators! Plus you can never have to many raid passes! Take advantage of these great deals while you can and enjoy your community tomorrow!!
