Plenty of topics to cover today both from the Newsroom and from the Community! We will recap what many trainers thought to be a relaxing week of Pokémon GO. With Heatran still in Legendary Raids and Eevee taking the Spotlight, there wasn’t too much FOMO out there to worry the player base. With the issues that faced the launch of Mega Evolutions, it seemed like Trainers were taking it easy there too.


The break may seem short lived  as we have a very full month of September including 3 weeks of Mega Events, 5 Spotlight Hours, and changes to the Mega mechanics that will get people excited to Mega Evolve! We will break down all of the news, updates, and best practices to help make your September as efficient as possible!


On the community front, we take a look at how the Pokémon GO community on Twitter has devolved into a bit of an angry mob, with some content creators as the focus. We discuss how feelings of optimism and positivity by creators has become synonymous with being a shill or a sell out. To clear the air, we break down our relationship with Niantic, and explain our perspective on critical coverage of the game.
