With the Mountains of Power event wrapped up, Trainers were treated to good old vanilla Season of Heritage spawns. This opens up the spawn pool to nearly 100 different Pokémon and the return of evolved forms to the wild. DO you think that we should see more downtime between events to allow us to hunt for a wider range of species?


The Power Plant event is here and will bring us the debut of Helioptile who scores mega cute points. While the event Raids do not seem so strong, we do have a pretty solid encounter and Field Research pool with plenty of shinies to hunt.


The Love Cup will be here soon and we review a few of the best counters and how they can be used. With the removal of Defense Deoxys it seems like the meta will return to being balanced and evenly competitive. Will you bring any spice picks? Ken may bring Rotom just for kicks.


Before wrapping up with a discussion about the Raid System, we have some fun with random Twitter responses to Niantic tweets. It leads us to believe that many people may not understand the ELO system and how while it is functioning perfectly, it may actually feel like it is designed to hold you back!
