[Fun Watch] This Taiwanese grandpa plays Pokémon GO with 15 phones mounted to his bike

Wednesday, November 14th, 2018

Do you love Pokémon GO? Do you really, really love it? If you answered yes, you may need to rethink your passion to the game when you see how far ahead of you this Taiwanese grandpa is. If catching 'em all is possible, I bet he'd be the one to do it and we'll all be just standing here applauding.

After learning about the game from his grandson, the 70-year-old man went ahead and rigged his bicycle with fifteen smartphones, mounts, cables, and power banks to last him an entire night — $4800 worth of gear overall.

Thursday, October 11th, 2018

Pokémon Go is still alive and kicking. Earlier this year, players finally got the ability to trade monsters with friends, a hallmark of the core Pokémon series fans had been asking for since the game's launch. Now, a new update is set to bring enhanced augmented reality (AR+) and creatures from the Sinnoh region featured in the series' fourth generation of games.

AR+ arrived on iPhones months ago, but it's only now making its way to Android.

Pokémon GO is locking out users after scanning internal storage for evidence of rooting

Monday, August 20th, 2018

Mobile games don't tend to look favorably on rooted devices — i.e. smartphones where the user has root access to the system code — due to the potential for cheating. However, not many go to the extreme that Niantic has just imposed with a recent update for its massively popular Pokémon GO game.

After an August 18th update to v0.115.2 of the AR-based Pokémon title, user .NetRoller 3D on the XDA Developers forums reported receiving the unauthorized device error despite running stock Android, and was locked out of the game.

Niantic Kids Parent Portal brings new child-oversight controls to ‘Pokémon Go’

Thursday, August 16th, 2018

"Pokémon Go" developer Niantic Labs has announced that it's partnered with kid-focused web service company SuperAwesome to create a new platform called Niantic Kids Parent Portal. With it, parents can manage accounts for their kids, "review and approve [their] child’s permissions," and control what information about the child is shared.

Aside from location data — which generally isn't visible to other players — not a whole lot of personal information is shared in "Pokémon Go." Still, it's reasonable that parents would want some extra peace of mind about young kids' online gaming experiences.

Niantic bringing PvP to ‘Pokémon GO’ by year’s end

Tuesday, August 7th, 2018

In a recent Gram Magazine interview with the European head of product marketing for Niantic, Anne Beuttenmüller revealed that Pokémon GO is finally going to get a player-versus-player mechanic, and we should expect to see this new content before the year is out. Few details were provided, so it's anyone's guess as to how it will all work. Despite some concerns over the unknown, I'm sure fans will be plenty excited to hear that they'll finally be able to battle their friends in Pokémon GO within the next five months.

Weekend poll: Are you still playing Pokémon Go?

Sunday, July 15th, 2018

Back in the far-off summer of 2016, Pokémon Go descended upon the world in a flurry of unstoppable nostalgia. It's not unreasonable to say that many if not most of us spent a good chunk of that season chasing down augmented reality models of our collective childhood. But not much later, analytics for the game suggested participation might be in decline. Now, two years on, Pokémon Go fest 2018 is in full swing in Chicago, and the summer weather across the US is perfect for the outdoor game.

‘Pokémon Go’ developer Niantic shows off AR tech that lets Pikachu hide behind real-world objects

Thursday, June 28th, 2018

An annoying but understandable quirk about the current state of most augmented reality applications is that virtual items imposed on an AR view don't relate to the world in a believable way: they just sit on top of a scene, regardless of whether or not real-world objects should appear in front of them. "Pokémon Go" developer Niantic showed off its impressive solution to this problem today in what it's calling Codename: Niantic Occlusion — using of course, Pokémon.

Two years on, Pokémon GO finally gets trading, ways to interact with friends in-game

Monday, June 18th, 2018

When Pokémon GO first launched almost two years ago, people downloaded the game in droves. It was arguably the first game whose gameplay relied heavily on interacting with the real world, enabling players to explore new places and capturing Pokémon through an AR lens. However, for all its emphasis on getting players off the couch and exploring the world together, Pokémon GO never truly supported any way for players to interact with one another — no kind of in-game chat exists, and trading, one of the most central parts in the original game series, has never received more that a passing hint or mention from Niantic.
