Pokemon GO - Halloween event now live

Halloween is here, and Pokémon GO has its own treats to give out! Starting October 26 and lasting through November 1, you can receive way more Candies than usual. Every Pokémon you catch will award six Candies—twice the normal amount. The Professor will give you two Candies instead of one for every Pokémon you transfer to him. And your Buddy Pokémon will award Candy four times faster than they usually do. Plus, you'll get twice the Candy you'd normally get when you hatch Eggs. Walk and catch all the Pokémon you can to get your fill of Candy during this special event!

Some spooky Pokémon will also be much more common leading up to Halloween. Be on the lookout for more of the following Pokémon on your trick-or-treat route:








Don't miss this fun chance to catch more Pokémon and collect more Candies in Pokémon GO leading up to a happy Halloween. For more Halloween fun, be sure to visit Pokemon.com/Halloween, where you can download Pokémon pumpkin stencils and share your festive photos using the hashtag #PokemonHalloween.

Have a happy Pokémon Halloween!

Thanks to AlienboyVA for the heads up!

Japan - Next week's Wii U/3DS eShop releases

Nintendo's hardware sales - 2007 to 2017

You really see how great Nintendo had it during the Wii/DS eras, and how much they're hurting now. As I've said before, the Switch has a lot of heavy lifting to do. I'm keeping all fingers and toes crossed that Nintendo can pull off a major victory.

13AM Games, Pirate Pop Plus devs both interested in Switch

Coming from a Reddit AMA with 13AM Games and Dadako, the dev behing Pirare Pop Plus...

13AM: we think it's pretty cool. Dare we say "a switch in the right direction?" ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) edit: realize I wanted to give a bit more detail I also think that it FEELS like my old SNES. Gathering around, playing games with a friend, that's something that makes tons of sense to me on, like, a base-level. If it's also powerful enough to run Skyrim? Super cool.

Dadako: I think it's a step in the right direction, I love local two player games - and have always wanted to develop more.

With both Guacamelee and Severed being fantastic games, I think Nintendo needs to hop on this request right away! I'd love to see what these guys could do with the new system.
