What’s up TEAM GG?!
We have a couple of Pokémon GO updates to go over! Lets get started.
9/2/2016 – Go out and explore with your Buddy Pokémon!
Pokémon GO introduces the new Buddy System which basically allows you to set one of your current Pokémon as “buddy”. You earn candy for having them out and about and earn “in-game rewards and experiences”. It’s still unclear what rewards or experiences Niantic is talking about, but I hoping it’s along the lines of Poké coins and more EXP. YEA~!
It’s a great way to farm Magikarp candies for Gyarados and other rare spawn Pokémon. More candies means more evolutions which could help you fill up that Pokédex or get that 100 IV Pokémon with the best move set.
The system could have been way more awesome by Pokémon out having an effect on capture rate vs Pokémon weak against them. Or… just blasting wild Pokémon with attacks to render them unconscious for that easy catch! LOL!
9/7/2016 – HEADS UP!
The new Apple Watch has Pokémon GO integration.

9/8/2016 – Pokémon GO Plus, JUST AROUND THE CORNER
Pokémon GO Plus is a small device that interacts with your phone without having to pull it out. It costs $34.99 can be worn on the wrist or a clip on. It allows you to claim Pokéstops by hitting that button at the top and even flashes when a Pokémon is near. The most intriguing feature it has is it allows you to “CATCH” or throw a Pokéball when a Pokémon is near. Awesome! If it vibrated too on egg hatch this device might be #worth !
Already better than the $370 apple watch right?
What do you think about the new updates / devices? Let me know in the comments. I’d love to hear from you!
