The last two weeks of gameplay have been unbelievable. Incredible bonuses, new Pokémon and new Shinies have kept most Trainers very busy. We recap our experiences with the Paldean events and reflect on how it feels now that they are gone. It is going to take some consistent doses of dopamine from Niantic to keep this momentum from plummeting.


PGO now has Hindi Language support which is a massive win for Trainers in India. With the success of the Wayfarer Challenge there, and now native language support, the game has an excellent foundation to take off. It will be exciting to see how many Trainers emerge from India after these updates.


The Unity game engine that PGO runs on has made a sweeping update to their developer pricing model, which has sent a surge of negativity near the top of the gaming world food chain. With the threats to Indie studios, and the incredible volume of downloads that PGO gets daily, this could be a very damaging update. We discuss whether or not Unity will stick to their decision or if they will bend. Either way, Niantic has some thinking to do.


Wayfarer announced a significant anti-cheat effort to moderate the service. Calling out bad-actors and review rings, it sounds like the Wayfarer team means business. If your not convinced, then just check out the 10 year ban that they added to their policy terms. While there are concerns about everyday Wayfinders throwing in the towel on the tool, we think this is a very positive move at large.


Routes have hit Campfire and we now have a proper way to prepare for Route play. This will be a gamechanger in the space, now we just have to hope that Trainers use it. Finally we wrap things up with a Raid Guide and Battle Party for Burn-Drive Genesect! KILL IT WITH FIRE!
