The past 24 hours have been immense, and I’ve been chilling because I think I’m starting to come down with a cold. But I have made progress, and need to (somehow) find 10 Ghost type Pokemon for my research task. I’ve never seen foggy weather in-game before. Please help me.
We also have brand new information. Supposedly, the first Mew has been caught – by a spoofer. But we also know that Niantic sent out the dreaded warning messages to suspected accounts, and also, Mew cannot be transferred in any way. So Mythical Pokemon such as Mew, Celebi and Jirachi cannot ever be transferred.
In tradition for April Fool’s, Niantic changed all of the sprites from 3D to 8-bit pixels, which is pretty cool for a while. But every possible sprite has been changed to 8-bit.
We also now have shiny Murkrow added to the game in a surprise move. Of all Pokemon, but this will pave the way for extra surprise shinies in the future, as well as shiny Honchkrow in Gen 4.
Altogether, I’m loving the new research feature. I’ve been going out of my way to get new tasks, finish the special tasks, even walking my shiny Gyarados again. I can’t wait to finish part 5, and then it’ll be plain sailing from there I think.
