Your 2017 Guide To Pokémon Go Eggs, Evolution Items, And More

Pokémon Go captured the world when it launched in summer 2016.
Beyond the excitement of traveling to new locations to catch monsters and meet
like-minded trainers, one of the things that made Niantic's collaboration with
The Pokémon Company so interesting was the mystery that surrounded nearly every
element about the game.

The mystery was thrilling at first, but after a while, being
in the dark wore on users of the app, and they decided to do something about
it. Players scoured their local areas, data-mined the app, and started
crowd-sourced sites on where to find the best monsters and how to be the most
efficient trainers they could be.

Each time a new major update hits, the sense of mystery in
Pokémon Go is reinvigorated. However, thanks to the methods discovered and
created by players in the original release, light is shed on each successive
update quicker than ever before.

Check out the latest information on Pokémon Go below, and if
you have anything you think would be helpful to add, let us know in the
comments section.

People Still Play
Pokémon Go?

Yes. Lots. As recently as February 22, 2017, it was the
top-grossing app in the iOS App Store. Alright, now that we have that out of
the way…

Well, I've never
played it. How do I start and what should I focus on at first?

Well, all you need to do is download it on the iOS App Store
or the Google Play store. It's a free app with optional microtransactions. Once
you're in, you'll be asked to choose a starter Pokémon. You can choose between
Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle, or do a secret trick to get Pikachu as your
starter
.

Once you're up and running, simply walk around
and start catching things that you encounter and spinning the disks of each
PokéStop you stumble upon to earn items. Each new monster brings you one step
closer to filling up your Pokédex, which is for many, the ultimate goal of the
game. Each time you catch a Pokémon, you earn candies, which can be used to
evolve some Pokémon or, when combined with stardust, power them up. I'd
recommend holding off on powering up any Pokémon until you get to a higher
level, as each time you level up your profile, you are able to catch more
powerful monsters. Until then, just save up your candies not used for evolution
and stockpile any stardust – you'll love having an abundance of stardust later
on when your monsters are ready to take on gyms. For more on gym battles, head

Where Can I Find A
Specific Pokémon?

Due to the nature of Pokémon Go's spawns, there is
unfortunately no reliable way to tell you to go to a specific spot to always
catch a specific Pokémon. However, many monsters do "nest" in the game, meaning
that if you go to a particular spot while their nest is located there, you're
likely to catch several of that monster.

Nests are not mentioned in Pokémon Go itself, but you can
find out what nests are around you (and even search on specific species of
Pokémon) using The Silph Road's Nest Atlas tool. This tool features reliable
crowd-sourced information from Pokémon Go players all over the world who report
the nests they encounter.

If you find an accessible nest of a creature
that you need, it's not a good idea to wait. Nests migrate approximately every
two weeks, which means many of the nests near you will be replaced by another
creature. The silver lining is that the Weedle nest next to your house could
very well become a Kabuto nest for a couple of weeks. 

What Pokémon Are
Region-Exclusive?

Just like in the mainline Pokémon games, some monsters can
only be found in certain regions. Check out the full list of known regional
exclusives below.

  • Tauros – North America
  • Farfetch'd – Asia
  • Mr. Mime – Europe
  • Kangaskhan – Australia
  • Heracross – Central and South America, Southern
    Florida and Texas
  • Corsola – Tropical Regions (Appears to be within
    30 degrees of the equator)

What Do I Get From
Eggs?

If you can't find a particular Pokémon, sometimes the best
way to find it is to leave it up to the roulette that is hatching eggs. You get
eggs from PokéStops and can hold up to nine at a time. In order to hatch eggs,
you must equip an incubator and walk the distance required for the type of egg
it is.

Each trainer is provided one incubator that can be used an
infinite amount of time. Additional incubators can be earned through leveling
up (though that becomes much rarer at higher levels), but the easiest way to
get more incubators is to buy them for 150 Pokécoins each in Pokémon Go's
in-app shop. Unfortunately, every incubator earned or purchased outside of the
original one can only be used to hatch three eggs.

A popular strategy is to use limited-use incubators on 5km
and 10km eggs, while only using the unlimited-use incubator every trainer has
on the multitude of 2km eggs you're sure to encounter. This will ensure you
don't burn through your premium incubators on eggs that not only hatch quickly,
but are also less likely to yield anything good. In addition, the higher the
egg distance, the more candy you'll receive for the Pokémon that hatches.

These eggs look different based on how far you must walk to
hatch them. 2km eggs are colored with green spots, 5km eggs feature yellow
spots, while 10km eggs have blue spots. While it might sound like you'd only
want 2km eggs so that you can burn through them and gather as many Pokémon as
quickly as possible, the higher the distance required by the egg, the better
the pool of Pokémon is that can hatch from it.

You cannot acquire regional exclusive Pokémon from eggs not
found in those regions, and stats have shown that if you visit the same PokéStops
every day, you'll likely hatch the same handful of Pokémon each time. In
addition, only the most basic form of that Pokémon's evolution chain is able to
be hatched, meaning you'll never find a Charizard or Dragonite in your eggs,
but rather those Pokémon's pre-evolution forms, Charmander and Dratini.

The Coolest Pokémon Sun And Moon Cards We Pulled From Booster Packs

Pokémon Sun and Moon were enormous successes for Nintendo when they launched on 3DS in 2016, and the makers of the Pokémon Trading Card Game hope to capitalize on that popularity with the new Sun & Moon expansion. The expansion boasts hundreds of new cards featuring the new monsters that debuted in the latest games, as well as new cards featuring classic monsters in either their original or Alolan forms.

We were sent a box of 36 booster packs, as well as the three theme decks that feature the three starters from Sun and Moon (Litten, Popplio, and Rowlet) all the way up to their third forms. We pulled the ones that were either the coolest or most powerful from the packs we opened. 

Scroll to the gallery below to see our favorite cards we opened from the Sun & Moon expansion. For our favorite cards that we pulled from the more retro-facing Generations and XY Evolutions expansions, head to this gallery.

 

On the next page, we highlight more of the best cards we pulled from our Sun and Moon booster packs.

How To Easily Evolve Eevee Into Umbreon Or Espeon In Pokémon Go

When Pokémon Go first launch, crafty players quickly figured out that if they renamed their eevee Sparky, Rainer, or Pyro then the little 'mons would evolve into Jolteon, Vaporeon, and Flareon, respectively. A similar trick seems to work for the recently released set of generation two critters.

The Silph Road ‏recently reported that if you rename your eevee Tamao before you evolve it then it will evolve into an Umbreon. Likewise, if you name your eevee Sakura it will turn into Espeon. We were able to confirm that this trick works when we tested it ourselves. Hopefully you stockpiled a few extra eevees. Happy Pokémon hunting!

New Pokémon Are Not Yet Available In Go, But The Promised Update Is Live

The promised update for Pokémon Go is now available, but new Gold & Silver Pokémon are not showing up in the wild yet.

The update changes some UI things (like being able to select Poké Balls and berries more easily), and also gives more clothing options (like being able to remove your hat), but doesn't deliver the big addition yet – new Pokémon.

We'll be keeping an eye on the game to see when the new creatures are available, but for now it's probably a good idea to go ahead and grab the update.

 

Our Take
It's borderline embarrassing how excited I am to catch new Pokémon.

Pokémon Center Launches Ditto Plush Collection

Look at this cute Pikachu doll! Isn't it absolutely… wait, what's up with its eyes? Surprise, it was Ditto all along!

The Pokémon Center's new Ditto Plush Collection has the series' shape-shifting creature taking the form of well-known Pokémon from the original 150. Plushes and keychains of Gen 1's starters, Eeveelutions, Clefairy, and Gengar sport Ditto's trademark beady-eyed smile. The line also includes Ditto in its original, non-transformed state as a keychain and a sleepy 17-inch plush to cuddle with for a post-battle nap.

Pokémon Go Aims For The Heart With Valentine’s Day Event

Niantic and The Pokémon Company are getting into the Valentine's Day spirit with a special holiday event. From today through February 15, players can get a candy boost and better odds of tracking down a handful of Pokémon.

You'll earn double candy from catching, hatching, and transferring Pokémon, and your buddy Pokémon will also find the sweet stuff twice as quickly. Pink Pokémon have an increased spawn rate, too, so you're more likely to find Chansey, Clefable, and Porygon out in the wild, while Cleffa, Igglybuff, and Smoochum are more likely to hatch from the eggs that you find. Lures also last six hours instead of 30 minutes during the event.

The Valentine's Day celebration lasts from today at 11:00 a.m. Pacific through 11 a.m. on February 15.

 

Our Take
It's 1 degree in Minneapolis. No Pokémon – no matter what color – could entice me to spend an extra fraction of a second outside. For people in more temperate climates, congrats on your pleasant lives.
