Explaining the “new” updates to old players

I just watched Nick’s video from a couple days ago.  Super informative!

If you began playing Pokemon Go when it first came out, but along the way got frustrated or bored, or just stopped playing for whatever reason, but have picked it back up – this video is for you!  Trainer Tips covers the major game updates and talks about what we are still looking forward to.

If you aren’t already subscribed to his YouTube Channel, please do so. He consistently puts out amazing PoGo content.

 

Alolan Exeggutor is now available!!!

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. Enjoy, Trainers, and stay tuned for more news about Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! soon.

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!

Community Day Wrap up

Another successful Community Day has come to a close. Me and some friends rode around in a minivan and had an absolute blast rolling around our downtown district. We all came out with a plentiful bounty of shiny Charmander and shared more laughs than we can count. I ended up getting 13 shinys over the 3 hour event. I want to know how all of your community days went. Did you catch a lot of shinys or none at all?? Whether you caught a bunch or not did you have fun? Please let us know in the comment section.
