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.”

Pokemon Go Nerfs Pidgey Spawns. So Here's an Extra Daily Dose of Pidgey

More good news for Pokemon GO players. Niantic continues on their recent trend of giving players more of what they want. In this case, the more is LESS of Pidgey, Ratata and Zubat.

We know that life just won't be the same for us without finding a pidgey on every damn corner of the earth. So let us remember the good times we shared with our little flappy friend with.

Well it looks like these crazed lunatics thought it was cruel or something that we're all out there trying to toss poké balls at the next animated Pidgey or whatever; but damn if they took matters too far when they decided to dress up as giant Pikachus to make their point...

What do you guys think? The gym leaders were revealed yesterday at San Diego Comic-Con, when hundreds of players also gathered with high hopes that a legendary might be unleashed...no such luck, unfortunately. Some other details covered:

  • There are easter eggs that nobody's discovered yet
  • They’re planning ways to customize Pokestops
  • Pokemon Centers are coming
  • There will be more functionality added to gyms, though the specifics aren’t clear
  • Niantic says the game is at about 10% of what they want it to be
  • They’re still discussing breeding, but nothing concrete in the works yet
  • The legendary birds are tied to teams in some way, as the original designs implied
  • Yep, they know about the three-step glitch.
  • It sounds like we can’t expect legendaries until after the game has been released on all regions, which makes sense

While up in space and waiting to be deployed into Earth's atmosphere for an underwater Russian facility, Harley Quinn encounters an exciting Pokémon (Mewtwo tho?..), and exclaims "Oooh, There's a Pokecutey up here!"

Suicide Squad #1 is authored by Rob Williams and pencilled by Jim Lee, with Alex Sinclair on coloring duties and Nate Piekos bringing it all together on the lettering. Here's the image of Harley trying to catch 'em all:
