You NEED to finish the “An Inter-egg-sting Development” Research!

After months of staying in hiding, Giovanni is back with a new plan. There are new shadow eggs that contain… honestly pretty basic Pokemon, and we need to, uh, liberate them from Team Rocket! Alongside these new eggs, we have a new special research! And unlike the old Team Rocket special researches, this one is important. It has some pretty damn good rewards. But you gotta work for them. I’m gonna cut to the chase. You can’t miss out on these rewards. The new special research gives two things: Firstly, at the very end of the research, it gives you… [Continue Reading]

On Trying to Decide Who My Next Buddy Should Be – Pokemon GO

After a day of being excited from Team Rocket battles during GO Fest, I finally became Best Buddies with my Tyranitar Wondershadow. It took me just over a month to get to Best Buddies, mostly because I’ve not been as active as normal. Well, outside of events like GO Fest. But I managed to get Wondershadow to be excited after constantly battling with him, and the extra hearts I earned were just enough to push me over the edge and get to Best Buddies. But with Wondershadow the Tyranitar satisfied, I wondered who I should walk next. After all, that… [Continue Reading]

The Eternal Question of What To Power Up Next

After trying to get an EX Pass for weeks (and only getting one because a ton of new EX Gyms were added), I am finally the proud owner of a Shadow Ball Mewtwo. It’s a mediocre Mewtwo with a mere 11 Attack and not really any good stats anywhere else, but it’s a Mewtwo with a rare legacy move that makes it super strong. So of course I’ve had people suggest I power it up. But should I power it up? I mean it IS a Mewtwo. With Shadow Ball. I have lots of Mewtwos though. About 30, to be… [Continue Reading]

Oh, Hey, Shiny Mewtwo Is Here in Pokemon Go…

What was that? Is that the sound of Mewtwo coming around to kick my Pokemon’s asses as he reappears in level 5 raids for a week? Why yes, yes it is! As of Monday (well, Tuesday for people not in the Americas), Mewtwo is replacing Deoxys as the level 5 raid boss and, for the first time ever, he’s appearing in shiny form. Which means everyone wants him. Yeah, that sounds just about right, especially since I ranted about how Mewtwo isn’t that amazing when it comes to Pokemon Go. At least, he’s not as amazing as everyone assumes. And… [Continue Reading]

On Mewtwo

While we’re on the subject of Pokemon, I think it’s worth having a quick chat about Mewtwo. Because Mewtwo is by far the best legendary Pokemon. By far. You ask someone to name a rare, legendary Pokemon, chances are, it’s Mewtwo. Heck, Mewtwo’s so badass that he was the first legendary Pokemon to get a Mega Evolution. For someone so old, Mewtwo still has a ton of pulling power. A lot of it has to do with the fact that pretty much everyone my age watched that first Pokemon movie. Sure, Mewtwo’s the bad guy, but he’s a smart Pokemon… [Continue Reading]

A Perfect Ending to a Mythical Discovery

After so damn long, I finally managed to finish A Mythical Discovery, the special research in Pokemon Go for Mew. I got stuck on this quest so many damn times. But it all finished very abruptly and probably in the best way possible. So the Mew quest is a bit of a funny one, and is actually a requirement if you want to do the Celebi quest. The Celebi quest unlocks when you reach stage 4 of 8 of A Mythical Discovery. But both quests are pretty similar, with the same old series of steps. The Mew quest though doesn’t… [Continue Reading]
