Pokémon Go Updates, Don't Miss Out

There are new features to Pokémon Go that you really don't want to miss out on. If you are a little bit lost with all of these updates, don't worry our team is here to lead you through this amazing Pokémon Go world!

  • Lucky Egg upgrade: Niantic has shortened the animation that plays while your Pokémon evolve.  This means you can evolve even more Pokémon in 30 minutes.  One of our teammates was able to evolve more than 88 Pokémon, this gave her 88,000 XP!  Level 40 now seems less far away from us.
  • Pokémon Buddy System. Tired of walking alone? Choose your favorite Pokémon to take for a walk and collect Candy on the way, this allows you to power up or evolve your chosen Pokémon.
    Choosing your buddy: No need to walk a Pokémon that is already fully powered up, choose a Pokémon that needs a little bit of Candy to evolve or to power up. Just like hatching an egg you need to keep your screen open while you walk your Pokémon, different Pokémon have different distances required, but regardless of the distance you will receive one candy per target distance, it could be 1km, 3km or 5! You can also switch out your buddy whenever you choose. Our team likes to choose Pokémon that are powerful or rare, depending on whether they play to battle in a gym or to power up rare Pokémon regardless of their CP.

 

       

 

  • Pokémon Gym: Those who love to do battle will get more gym time! This gym update now allows you to select up to 6 Pokémon to train in a friendly gym, previously you could only take one Pokémon into a friendly gym to train. This made it incredibly difficult to boost your gyms prestige as you had to fight and beat all the Pokémon in a high level gym with just one Pokémon, (although we were fans of battlling one Pokémon and if we won, run).
    Now that you are allowed a full team of 6 into your teams’ gym, you can boost the prestige of the gym by battling and beating them all, especially if you choose Pokémon to battle with lower CP than those in the gym. One of our teammates is a gym rat and loves that he gets to spend more time in friendly gyms as it helps him improve and be better when battling other teams gyms.
  • Professors Appraisal: Finally, you can learn about your Pokémon’s Individual Value (IV) quickly. In one easy tap, the professor will give you a breakdown of your Pokémon stats and strongest feature, providing you are able to understand the key phrases.

No worries, we’re here to help you. First, it depends of your team color so here we goooo :

 

Mystic team (blue):

 “Overall, your Pokémon is a wonder! What a breathtaking Pokémon!” => Congratulations! Your Pokémon IV is between 82.2% to 100%.

“Overall, your Pokémon has certainly caught my attention.” => Not too bad! Your Pokémon IV is between 66.7% to 80%.

“Overall, your Pokémon is above average.” => Hum… Your Pokémon  IV is between 51.1% to 64.4%.

“Overall, your Pokémon is not likely to make much headway in battle.” => Less than 48.9%! Go catch another Pokémon immediately…!

 

Valor team (red):

 “Overall, your Pokémon simply amazes me. It can accomplish anything!” => Congratulations! Your Pokémon IV is between 82.2% to 100%.

“Overall, your Pokémon is a strong Pokémon. You should be proud!” => Not too bad! Your Pokémon IV is between 66.7% to 80%.

“Overall, your Pokémon is a decent Pokémon” => Hum… Your Pokémon IV is between 51.1% to 64.4%.

“Overall, your Pokémon may not be great in battle, but I still like it!” => Less than 48.9%! Go catch another Pokémon immediately…!

Valor team (Yellow):

 “Overall, your Pokémon looks like it can really battle with the best of them!” => Congratulations! Your Pokémon IV is between 82.2% to 100%.

“Overall, your Pokémon is really strong!” => Not too bad! Your Pokémon IV is between 66.7% to 80%.

“Overall, your Pokémon is pretty decent!” => Hum… Your Pokémon IV is between 51.1% to 64.4%.

“Overall, your Pokémon has room for improvement as far as battling goes.” => Less than 48.9%! Go catch another Pokémon immediately…!

 

After that the Professor will tell you what is the best feature of your Pokémon (either attack, defense or stamina (HP)). If you’re lucky he can tell you 2 or even 3 if they are all perfect IV.

Again, from what he says you will learn the IV Value with these phrases:

 

Mystic team (blue):

 “Its stats exceed my calculations. It's incredible!” => Wow! The IV for this feature is totally crazy, 15/15!

“I am certainly impressed by its stats, I must say.” => Well done! The IV for this feature is between 13 to 14.

“Its stats are noticeably trending to the positive.” => Could be worse… The IV for this feature is between 8 to 12.

“Its stats are not out of the norm, in my estimation.” => Sad, you’re definitively unlucky!!! The IV for this feature is less than 7.

 

Valor team (red):

  “I'm blown away by its stats. WOW!” => Wow! The IV of this feature is totally perfect, 15/15!

“It's got excellent stats! How exciting!” => Well done! The IV of this feature is valued 13 to 14.

“Its stats indicate that in battle, it'll get the job done.” => Could be worse… The IV of this feature is valued 8 to 12.

“Its stats don't point to greatness in battle.” => Sad, you’re definitively unlucky!!! The IV of this feature is less than 7.

 

Valor team (Yellow):

  “Its stats are the best I've ever seen! No doubt about it!” => Wow! The IV of this feature is totally perfect, 15/15!

“Its stats are really strong! Impressive.” => Well done! The IV of this feature is valued 13 to 14.

“It's definitely got some good stats. Definitely!” => Could be worse… The IV of this feature is valued 8 to 12.

“Its stats are all right, but kinda basic, as far as I can see.” Sad, you’re definitively unlucky !!! The IV of this feature is less than 7.

Halloween is coming! For a limited time you will be able to double the amount of Candy gained from the Pokémon you catch, the eggs you hatch and the Pokémon you transfer. Looks like it time to go out Trick or Treating to get more Candy.
