As we reach the midpoint of May, the in game events have been keeping Trainers satisfied and busy with a great blend of bonuses and spawns. With the announcement of GO Fest Berlin and Sapporo details, morale amongst the social community may be on the mend. In person events like Safari Zone Seville continue to push the point of returning to in person play.

We held off on recording live earlier in the week in order to maintain our embargo on the late week news! We start off with the Mega system revamp that we have all been waiting for! Niantic may have finally hit a home run as this update really engages you with the mechanic and makes it seem worth it to Mega Evolve! Hopefully our Mega Kangaskhan Mega Moment will go ...

The April Fool’s Ditto event left us wanting more as half of the community didn’t even know that there was a mini event tucked into 3 hours of the day. For whatever reason, this event hit the mark with Trainers even though it didn’t include any new Pokémon or bonuses. It was just an all around good old fashioned hunt.

With the Mountains of Power event wrapped up, Trainers were treated to good old vanilla Season of Heritage spawns. This opens up the spawn pool to nearly 100 different Pokémon and the return of evolved forms to the wild. DO you think that we should see more downtime between events to allow us to hunt for a wider range of species?

    Sympathy Pains

    Hosted by Laura Beil (Dr. Death, Bad Batch), Sympathy Pains is a six-part series from Neon Hum Media and iHeartRadio. For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
