This August Ruslan Sokolovsky recorded himself while playing Pokémon GO inside Church of All Saints in Yekaterinburg, after having been made aware such activity within the church could result in jail time...

“How can one offend by entering a church with a smartphone?” Sokolovsky asked. “I decided to just catch some Pokemon in church because, why not? I believe it’s both safe and not prohibited by law. Let’s go.”

Well, fast forward to after Sokolovsky posted the video he was investigated by police, and shortly thereafter charged with inciting hatred and offending religious sensibilities. He's being detained for two months, and stands to face up to five years in jail.

What do you guys think, does the punishment fit the crime here?

Jimmy Derocher wanted to prove to everyone out there that was saying it was impossible to get one million XP in a day, wrong...unfortunately, Niantic wasn't so down for the occasion. Derocher went ahead and put together a special walking plan for his goal as well:



“We place[d] in-game lures on 10 Pokestops in a 0.2 mile loop, which we [planned to] walk over and over,” Derocher said. “People casually call it ‘Jimmy’s loop.’”

Derocher even tried reaching out to Niantic before taking on the challenge, asking them if he could be 'whitelisted.'



Even though Derocher did end up getting softbanned he was still able to raise a decent enough amount of money for charity.

“I logged 25 miles using the app Charity Miles, and we’ll be able to donate $50-60 to charity thanks to stream donations,” Derocher said. “[But] we easily could’ve seen 1.5x that mileage and 5-10x the charity donations given...a full stream.”

Quotes from Bulbapedia:

The official Korean Pokémon site has revealed Mega Slowbro and Mega Audino. The pages for them where taken down quickly, and are currently offline. Mega Slowbro is Water/Psychic and has Shell Armor. Its Defense and Special Attack increase greatly. It is 2.0 m (6'07") tall and weighs 120.0 kg (264.6 lbs.).

Description: Energy becomes concentrated on Shellder which is biting its tail. The result, its shell's hardness increases so that it becomes a strong armor which cannot get be scratched by anyone. When a battle begins, it uses it tail to stand upright and moves by bending its tail like a spring and springing up and down/leaping. With its greater Defense and Sp. Attack stats, it can be relied on in long battles.


Mega Audino is Normal/Fairy and has Healer. Its Defense and Special Defense are increased. It is 1.5 m (4'11") tall and weighs 35.0 kg (70.5 lbs.).

Description: It makes a healing pulse and exudes it from its body to break its enemies. This pulse of healing is strong and makes anyone feel peaceful. Anyone who comes into contact with its 2nd extension/antenna-thing falls into a deep sleep. Its increase in Defense and Sp. Defense stats make it a good supporter in Double Battles.

Mewtwo has no official special moves in Super Smash Bros for Wii U/3DS, but you can hackily achieve them through the use of Miis.  In order to do it, you have to download a Mii not created on your system, then select it for play, deselect it, and select Mewtwo.  Mewtwo inherits that Mii's custom moves, but since this isn't supposed to happen things get pretty glitchy.
