5 Legendaries You Should Consider Powering Up in Pokemon GO

Legendary Pokemon are cool. There’s no denying it. And in Pokemon GO, you can catch lots of Legendary Pokemon. However, Legendary Pokemon are hard to get candy for. While the stardust costs are the same, candy isn’t. You can’t reliably walk a Legendary Pokemon like a normal buddy. And since they rotate in and out of raids, you either have to go ham or not get candy. Assuming the bastards even catch. So with candy in short supply, what Pokemon are worth powering up? It’s easy to say “all of them to level 40”, but frankly, getting a handful to… [Continue Reading]

What’s The Point of Double Candy if there’s Nothing to Catch?

On the 12th and 13th of June, we had a small mini-event in Pokemon GO. The event was very simple: get double candy for catching Pokemon. There were some other bonuses as well, like a higher chance to get XL candy. But that only applied to level 40+ players. Sounds great in theory. However, there’s a small problem here. There was nothing to really catch. We had overlapping events! This candy event started in the middle of A Very Slow Discovery. As you can probably guess, the Pokemon in this event are mostly Slowpoke. Sure, we get the release of… [Continue Reading]

On Painting Everyone with the Same Furry Brush

When I first clambered onto the internet, I used the name “Phovos the Raptor” as my online persona. The name, to me at least, sounded unique and cool and slightly badass, and was fitting for a 16 year old girl pretending to be a 16 year old boy who spent most of her time writing bad Bionicle fan fiction and being overly apologetic towards Bohrok and Rahkshi. In hindsight, it’s not a great name at all, but I still occasionally use the name Phovos if my preferred usernames Medic and Retvik aren’t available. These days though, I tend to leave… [Continue Reading]

Legendary Pokemon You’ll Probably Only Need One of in Pokemon GO

Generally, when you catch a Legendary Pokemon, it’s pretty cool. In the main series games in particular, it’s part of the story. You tend to only get one of them in a single play-through, and they’re generally of great importance. If you wanted a shiny Pokemon, you’d have to reset the game countless times for a tiny, tiny chance. And that only applied to earlier games – newer ones are relegated to events. However, in Pokemon GO, it’s possible to get many, many of the same type of Legendary. Raids regularly cycle through Pokemon, and even with just free passes,… [Continue Reading]

Please Let Us Keep the Dog Days Ephemera

When Dog Days came by last year, one of the biggest requests was that we needed the cute rubber rings as a cosmetic. There was also huge demand for the water gun as a weapon skin. Sadly our wishes were not granted, and Dog Days 2020 faded away. But in 2021, we got our wishes. For 490 Nakak Pearls, you could buy the weapon skin. And for one Nakak Pearl, the Dog Days Ephemera was ours to keep. Except it’s not. The Dog Days Ephemera will go away after Dog Days ends. Why? I don’t know. For some reason, the… [Continue Reading]

On Using The Command Artifact

Artifacts are unlockable modifiers in Risk of Rain 2 that alter how the game plays out. Unlike most items though, you choose which artifacts you want to use at the start of the game, and they last until the end of your run. However, the majority of artifracts add challenging modifiers and make the game more difficult. Or, at the very least, they have heavy downsides. However, there is one artifact that makes a Risk of Rain run much, much easier: The Artifact of Command. Choose your items! The Artifact of Command is quite simple. When you get an item,… [Continue Reading]

The Difficulties in Farming Endo

When the new clan affinity system came out, all clans could built an altar and level up their clan. Back then, I was a more fledgling member of my clan, but we had quite a bit of affinity. With everything added up, we were clan level 9. And the altar we’d built would give us endo for reaching that level. From it, I got 45,000 endo. I had never felt richer when it came to the vital mod-upgrading shiny stuff. But the more I thought about it, even back then, the more I realized that farming endo is tough. Early… [Continue Reading]

My Least Favourite Minecraft Enemies

I’ve been playing Minecraft more and more recently, which means there’s lots of zombies to slay. However, since I took a break from Minecraft, there’s a lot of newer features that I’m only vaguely aware of. But despite that, Minecraft is still a very familiar game that’s filled with hostile mobs that want to kill you. Some of these enemies though do annoy me, and I’d be quite happy if they didn’t exist. Drowned While I do appreciate oceans being much more lively now, there is one massive thing that bothers me: Drowned. Drowned are basically underwater zombies. They can… [Continue Reading]

Season of Discovery reminds me of Pre-Seasons Pokemon GO

On June 1st, the Season of Legends ended and the Season of Discovery began. To be honest, the Season of Legends wasn’t that legendary. And the Season of Discovery probably won’t have many discoveries. But something about this new season is odd. Despite being new, it feels old. Why is that? Can’t be the events. The events this June are pretty similar to previous months: constant and hard to keep track of. We’re having a ‘slow’ event soon which will have Slowpoke and similar Pokemon take up 99% of the spawns, and the new Pokemon we want will probably be… [Continue Reading]

More Shinies for Everyone

I was browsing a Pokemon GO subreddit the other day, and in one thread, someone was bitching about shinies. However, they weren’t complaining because they didn’t have any. The opposite, they were arguing that shinies are way too common in Pokemon GO. According to them, shinies should be a super rare experience and we should have to WORK for them. But what this person seemed to forget is that Pokemon GO isn’t a main series Pokemon game. If anything, collecting shinies is a core part of Pokemon GO. Think about it. We have PvP, yes, but it’s very different from… [Continue Reading]
