If you're like me you might've been out there trying to catch 'em all, stressed out about making the most outta your limited supply of incense, and completely unaware that the best way to attract Pokémon while using an incense is to jog...at exactly 7.5 miles per hour. So, reasonably damn fast. 

Yes, according to Pokémon GO's coding (first discovered by the Redditor __isitin__), Incense'll spawn one Pokémon every five minutes, if the player is not moving around. Except, the spawn rate surges to once a minute if a player travels at least 200 meters between spawns---about 7.5 MPH.

Based off Pokémon GO's frustratingly glitchy tracking system, and players actually taking pit stops to catch the Pokémon they find---you'd probably be able to catch between 10-15 Pokémon while your incense is active.

Just a day after we learned that the hit game Pokémon GO was requesting full access permission to a user's Google account, developer Niantic went on to release a software update that aims to resolve the security scare.

A few weeks ago an anonymous group of inspired artists erected a giant Pikachu statue in New Orleans, as a landmark of sorts for the Pokémon GO fans to appreciate. Check out the following video, which explains why the statue was taken down:

Gen 2 Pokemon Are Here! Well, Sort of.

Niantic, we're shaking our head. Again. We can't help but wonder what Pokemon GO would be today with a different development team at the helm, and we can't help but wonder what Nintendo was thinking in hiring such an inexperienced team to handle such a beloved and closely guarded franchise. Maybe Mario Flappy Bird will be better?

Anyways, we're shaking our head because Niantic has just botched the long awaited release of Gen 2.

The coding that hints at the prospect of Niantic soon introducing buddy Pokémon that follow your avatar around, was first noticed in a github depository, which uploaded all of Pokémon GO's data from newest update.



The coding shows off three different possibilities for how 'buddy Pokémon' will appear on-screen:

-Perched on player's shoulder
-Flying next to player
-Walking behind player (could be tied in to the height/weight measurements previously discovered in Pokémon GO data mine

Would be pretty cool to see Niantic implement a feature that's available in other Pokémon games (Pokémon Yellow, HeartGold/SoulSilver). Can you imagine walking round town with a Zapdos as your 'buddy Pokémon' though?...



So much yes.
