Eight months ago, Pokemon GO developer Niantic announced the AR game Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. The upcoming mobile game will let players fight powerful enemies, learn spells, team up with other witches and wizards, and more. However, despite this game being based around J.K. Rowling’s famous works, Niantic says that it will also take some cues from Pokemon GO. In a new interview, Niantic CEO John Hanke shed a little more light on what fans could expect from Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. The executive revealed that the game will draw from Pokemon GO “in terms of what worked about that game.” In particular, “it will be a game where you go outside” where players will be “drawn to new places” and will play Harry Potter: Wizards Unite with their friends.Those who love Pokemon GO will be delighted with these comments. That game recently introduced a trading and friendship feature, rewarding players who make an effort to cultivate their friendships … [Read more...] about How Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Borrows From Pokemon GO Success

Adventure Week for Pokemon GO started earlier today and brought with it a variety of things for players to look forward to, like Rock-type Pokemon appearing more frequently and earning more XP from Gym and Pokestop photo discs. It now seems that some new shiny Pokemon have been added to the mix, as well. From the sounds of it, five more shiny versions of Pokemon were added to Pokemon GO for the event. Those five happen to be Aerodactyl, Kabuto, Kabutops, Omanyte, and Omastar. Some may remember them from Generation 1 Pokemon games as the Pokemon that had to be resurrected from different fossils. A dataminer by the name of Chrales had initially broken the news and some lucky players confirmed it later after running into some of the shiny Pokemon in the game after the event went live.Of course, there is a difference in appearance for each of these new shiny Pokemon to tell them apart from their non-shiny brethren.
