Pokemon GO players are currently busy taking full advantage of the awesome bonuses available through the Extraordinary Raid Week event, but it’s never too early to start looking forward to the next big celebration. Yesterday, after a few weeks of fan predictions and speculation, Niantic officially confirmed that June’s Community Day will put the spotlight on Slakoth and its family of evolutions. The lazy gen 3 creature is very popular and is actually in a pretty high demand for a lot of Pokemon GO players. That should make June’s Community Day a very popular event even without considering the other bonuses that will take place during the three hour window. Although the exclusive move isn’t official yet, the Chinese Pokemon GO Twitter account may have accidentally spilled the beans on that. According to a translation of the tweet, it sounds like Slaking will be able to obtain the very powerful move Body Slam.“PokemonGoCommunityDay takes place on June 8th … [Read more...] about Pokemon GO Slaking Community Day Exclusive Move Leaked

Thanks to the Extraordinary Raid Week, Pokemon GO trainers have a ton of exciting Battle Raid opportunities during the rest of the month of May. There’s a new list of Battle Raid bosses to defeat and a few of them are strong metagame choices or possibly even new Pokedex entries for more casual players. Although many Pokemon GO players are most excited about the level 4 and level 5 bosses, Floatzel still has enough novelty to likely steal the attention of some trainers. The Pokemon is currently hatching from level 3 Battle Raid eggs and is pretty easily soloable for players who know what to expect from the fight. The best counters against Floatzel are going to be strong Electric-types. This is good news, since many Battle Raid veterans have likely already spent Stardust powering up a similar roster for previous bosses. Floatzel is also weak to Grass-type moves, so that’s another area to exploit if you need some alternate roster options.Best Counters (at level 30) Raikou … [Read more...] about Pokemon GO: How To Solo A Floatzel Raid
Pokemon GO implemented a ton of exciting changes in the last few days including everything from new Lure Modules to the long-rumored release of Glaceon and Leafeon. In the midst of new items and new steps towards a complete Pokedex, it may have been easy to overlook the addition of an exciting new move, as well. Pokemon GO players now have access to the popular Ground-type move Earth Power for certain new sinnoh region Pokemon. That’s not all though. A few existing Ground-type creatures are also gaining access to the powerful PvP charge move. Earth Power is a strong attack that can be used to lower the opponent’s defense in Trainer Battles. It should be a pretty relevant ability and actually have a significant impact on the metagame.“Certain Pokémon recently arrived from the Sinnoh region will know Earth Power. Other Pokémon that could know Earth Power include Nidoqueen, Nidoking, Aerodactyl, Camerupt, and Claydol.” With tons of shiny … [Read more...] about Pokemon GO Adds Earth Power Move For Some Ground-Types
Pokemon GO saw one of its biggest Gen 4 updates recently, adding not only new Pokemon and evolutions, but brand new Lure Modules as well. Pokemon GO players can use these Lure Modules to get some of the game’s most anticipated Pokemon, including the Eeveelutions Glaceon and Leafeon. However, there is another way to get Glaceon and Leafeon in Pokemon GO. Past Eeveelutions in Pokemon GO have let players use a “name trick” to be guaranteed a certain Eeveelution, with the names coming from the Pokemon anime. For example, if players want their Eevee to evolve to Flareon, they can nickname it “Pyro.” Alternatively, if they want their Eevee to evolve to Vaporeon, they can nickname it “Rainer,” and so on and so forth. Despite players being able to guarantee themselves a Glaceon or Leafeon using Lure Modules, they can also use the name trick to get them as well. Please note that the name trick will only work the first … [Read more...] about Pokemon GO: Does the Name Trick Work for Glaceon and Leafeon?
