Niantic is introducing a buddy system in Pokemon Go

Pokemon GO, despite its relatively short lifespan on the mobile games market, has gone through many different iterations. What began as a buggy yet addictive mobile app has successfully managed to transition through the loss of 15 million daily Pokemon GO users and into a game that has made noticeably large strides toward upgrading its features and overall performance. The development team behind Pokemon GO has been busy attempting to meet the expectations of over 200 million players, and unbelievably, the process has been met with fan support in recent weeks.

Mysterious Pikachu monument pops up in New Orleans

The power of Pokémon and Pokémon Go is great and can compel people to do some amazing things, as has been well documented thus far, but in terms of mysterious events, we may have just reached the peak: Overnight in New Orleans, a large statue of a defiant-looking Pikachu popped up, and nobody seems to know how it got there. Since Sunday, Coliseum Square Park has been the home to this “Pokémonument,” as it’s being called due to the inscription on the back, and fans are flocking to see the statue that looks like bronze, but is actually made out of fiberglass.

Pokéball fireworks explode during japanese fireworks display

Japan has been hosting fireworks festivals since the 1700s, when they would be fired into the sky to ward off evil spirits. Today, the tradition continues, mostly in July and August.

Over time, groups of pyrotechnical experts would compete for the most impressive display, which led to a great deal of artistry that, again, has carried over to today. Naturally, since Pokémon has been a Japanese pop culture phenomenon for the past 20 years, the franchise has worked its way into the festivities. We can’t exactly expect people to paint a Charizard in the night sky using only colorful explosives, but the Japanese sure have figured out how to make a Pokéball:

Meet the Unlikely Singer of the Electrifying Pokémon Theme Song

Witness the makings of a timeless classic.

18 years ago, Jason Paige found himself in a studio recording session for a theme song to the American version of Pokémon. With previous experience with jingles and other commercial work, this seemed like any other ordinary gig, but it wasn’t until he started to hear his voice playing out of Pokémon merchandise that he realized that his was becoming the voice of a cultural phenomenon. Eventually, Paige was given a one time payment from 7 different companies, so he will not see any compensation for the recent 400 percent spike in Spotify plays following the launch of Pokemon GO, but he feels that the joy and inspiration this song brings to people is already gratifying enough.

Since then, the 47-year-old recording artist has worked with major names like Aerosmith, Enrique Iglesias, and even served as backup vocals for Michael Jackson — while more recently recording music for Seth Rogen’s upcoming animated flick, Sausage Party. While the cartoon is on its 18th season and no longer using his version of the theme song, his voice is widely associated with the Pokémon franchise. Look forward to an upcoming live performance of the epic song on July 28th in Los Angeles, where he will include more Poké-themed surprises combined with original music.

How to play other Pokemon games on your smartphone

Pokemon Go is on its way to become another social phenomenon. Everyone’s talking about it and its putting some people off and making them hate it. Some Pokefans do not like how everyone suddenly is playing Pokemon when all of these supposed Pokemon fans didn’t care before Pokemon Go. Things are happening. So, have you ever played a Pokemon game before? Do you know the most fun elements of a Pokemon game that you’re missing out in Pokemon GO? If you want to find out by playing some of those games from the 90s, here’s how you can do it on your android.

1. Find an emulator that can play the version of Pokémon you want. There are many different versions of Pokémon that have been released for all of the different Gameboys over the years. You will need a different emulator depending on which version you want to play.

  • Red, Blue, Gold, Silver, Crystal – You’ll need a Game Boy Color emulator. One of the most popular is John GBC. There is a free version or a more full-featured version for a few dollars.[1]
  • Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, HeartGold, SoulSilver – You’ll need a Game Boy Advance emulator to run these games. Popular GBA emulators include My Boy! andGBA.emu. Note that these emulators can usually also run Game Boy and Game Boy Color games.[2]
  • Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, Black, White, Black 2, White 2 – You’ll need a Nintendo DS emulator. The current king in this department is DraStic DS Emulator. It costs a little more than other emulators but runs Nintendo DS games flawlessly on most devices. There are also free emulators available.[3]
  • X, Y, Omega Ruby, Alpha Sapphire – It is not currently possible to play Nintendo 3DS games on Android, as there is no legitimate emulator. Avoid any site that claims to host a 3DS emulator, as these are most likely scams.

2. Check the system requirements. Before downloading an emulator, ensure that your phone meets the system requirements for the app. Some of the newer emulators such as DraStic may only run on newer devices. All apps will post their system requirements in the App Description.

SEE : Pokemon Go Tips

3.  Install the emulator. All of the most popular emulators can be downloaded directly from the Google Play Store. If you want to install an emulator that isn’t available on the Google Play Store, you’ll need to enable installing apps from other sources:

  • Open your device’s Settings menu.
  • Tap Security.
  • Check the “Unknown sources” box.
  • Download the emulator from its website, or copy the APK file onto your Android device from your computer.
  • Find the APK file on your device using a File Explorer app. Tap it to install the app.

4. Download the Game Boy Advance BIOS file. If you are installing a Game Boy Advance emulator, you will need to download a separate BIOS file. This file is not included for legal reasons, but can easily be found online by searching for “gba_bios.bin”

  • Place this BIOS file somewhere on your phone that is easy to find. It is recommended that you place it in the same folder that you will be placing your ROM files in.
  • You will be asked to locate the BIOS file when you start your Game Boy Advance emulator for the first time.

5. Search Google for the game you want plus the word “ROM”. For example, if you want Pokémon Emerald, search “Pokémon Emerald ROM”. A ROM file is a copy of the game that the emulator will load. It is essentially a copy of the original cartridge. It is illegal to download a ROM of a game that you do not own.

6. Download the ROM file. Once you’ve found a good link, tap the Download button on the ROM’s page to download it to your device. Look carefully for the real download link. Oftentimes there will be advertisements disguised as Download buttons. Files will be downloaded in .ZIP or .7z format to your Download folder.

  • The time the game takes to download varies depending on the game. Pokémon Red is a much smaller file than Pokémon Black 2.

7. Place the ROM in a dedicated folder. You may find it easier to collect all of your ROM files in one place, especially if you are downloading multiple games. You can use a file manager app on your phone to move the files to a dedicated folder, or you can plug your device into your computer and use Windows Explorer to move files around

8. Open your emulator. Depending on which emulator you chose, the process for opening ROMs may vary. Some emulators will ask you to browse for the ROM immediately when you launch the emulator, others you will need to tap “Load ROM” or “Open”.

  • Some emulators such as GBAoid will prompt you for your ROM folder location. This is when having all of your ROMs in one location will make things much easier.

9. Select your game. After the app completes its search, the list of games you have downloaded will appear on the menu. To play, simply tap on the name and the game will start automatically.

10. Start playing. Most emulators will place virtual buttons on the touchscreen that emulate the physical directional pad and buttons on a Game Boy. Use these to control just as you would on a real Game Boy.

Have Fun!
