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.”

In general, there's still very little that can outclass R/B Golbat in terms of creepiness.

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.

Alexander Steinberg, an 18-year-old aspiring filmmaker managed to put together a video that encourages us all as an audience to take a minute, and ask ourselves, 'why does Pokémon GO! matter?'

Does it really? Or is there something more meaningful, impactful 'afoot? Is it the game's ability to unite strangers that'd otherwise never cross paths? One quote captured in the video sticks out in particular:

“You know my favorite part about this? Number one my brother and I used to play this as kids. He ends up passing away,” CrobinMaxxis said, pointing up. “He’s up there still, still, having a better fuckin’ collection than I do. But all the violence in the world, brutality, all this fucking racism. Look around here. You see this?” he said, gesturing to the crowd. “Not a single one is the same. Everyone is having a good time. This is what the world needs now.”

Pokémon Sun and Moon's Alolan Dugtrio Has Fabulous Hair, and the Internet Can't Even Right Now

The public Sun and Moon demo dropped, and reliable sources and committed hackers alike have since then confirmed that the demo contains files showing off the sprites of many of the unannounced Pokémon, including the final evolutions of the starters. But in all fairness, we're here to argue that Dugtrio and that fabulous hair is kind of stealing the dang show. And the folks of the internet seem to agree.
