Pokémon Go Celebrates Sword and Shield with Galarian Weezing

Posted by | Mobile, News | No Comments

Mobile AR game Pokémon GO is celebrating the recent release of Pokémon Sword and Shield on Nintendo Switch. An exclusive Galarian version of Gen 1 Pokémon Weezing can now be found in raid battles.

Galarian Weezing is a regional variant Pokémon, which were first introduced in Pokémon Sun and Moon with the Alolan Region. Regional variant Pokémon use a similar base model but have a different appearance and different typing than their base counterparts. In this case, Galarian Weezing is Poison and Fairy type.

New avatar items based on clothes from Pokémon Sword and Shield have also been added to Pokémon GO.

In addition to Galarian Weezing, Pokémon GO is hosting several events throughout November.

The Supereffective Week runs through next Tuesday, Nov. 26. During the week you’ll find more Pokémon who are particularly effective against Team Rocket. You will also earn double the Stardust from Trainer Battles and receive more potions and revives from PokéStops.

The following week, from Nov. 27 through Dec. 2, is the Friend Fest event. During that week, you will encounter more family-themed Pokémon in the wild, such as Nidoran and Nidorano. You’ll also gain an attack boost when raiding with friends, and get a 50% stardust discount on trading Pokémon with friends.

Finally, Terrakion, the Legendary Cavern Pokémon will be added to Pokémon GO later this month. Beginning Nov. 26, Terrakion will begin appearing in five-star raids, through Dec. 17.

Pokémon GO Halloween Event Begins this Week

Posted by | Mobile, News | No Comments

Can you guess which kind of Pokémon will more frequently appear during Pokémon GO’s seasonal Halloween event? We’ve had three years of Halloween events and by now you know the drill: more Ghost and Dark-type Pokémon will be found in the wild, hatched from eggs, and appear in raids starting this Thursday, October 17 at 1 pm Pacific/4 pm Eastern.

The big difference this year is that a new generation of Pokémon has been added since last year, with the Spirit Pokémon Yamask making its debut during the Halloween event. Darkrai can be found elusively in five-star raid battles.

Another new addition are Pokémon wearing costumes. During the Halloween event you can find Bulbasaur wearing Shedinja costumes, Charmander wearing Cubone costumes, and Squirtle wearing Yamask costumes. These costume-wearing Pokémon can be found in raid battles, but a Mimikyu-wearing Pikachu can be found in the wild, and all of them have a rare chance of appearing as shiny versions.

New Shadow Pokémon from Team Rocket have also been added, including Weedle, Beedril, Lapras, Sableye, and Duskull. Shadow Pokémon can be fought and rescued from Team GO Rocket Grunts at PokéStops.

The Halloween event also features new dress-up avatar items, new Field Research tasks, and double the candy bonuses for catching, hatching, and transferring Pokémon.

The Pokémon GO Halloween event begins Oct. 17 and ends Friday, Nov. 1. It’s available on iOS and Android mobile devices and rated E for Everyone.
