Why was Spark removed from Pokemon GO? That we don't know, but Niantic has heard the concern from Pokemon GO fans. The company has confirmed that Spark will return in the game’s next client update. There's no official date for that, but let's hope we see it hit soon!
Have you been collecting the Pokémon TCG: Sun & Moon—Guardians Rising cards? If you've been checking off your cards on our checklist, you've probably noticed that there are 145 cards in the collection. Well, it turns out that number isn't entirely accurate—there are actually 24 secret cards in the expansion that are numbered beyond those initial 145, for a grand total of 169!
These cards are exceptionally rare, and most are different versions of more common cards, so you might miss them if you're not paying close attention. In the Sun & Moon—Guardians Rising expansion, look for full-art Pokémon-GX in the amazing rare Rainbow style, where the Pokémon are outlined against a cool reflective rainbow background. And other secret cards might look like other cards you're familiar with—including basic Energy cards—with a telltale gold border to let you know they're cards to look out for.
These cards are obviously huge for collectors, with alternate designs and a special numbering system to make them worth seeking out. But they're also great for players, as these cards are often selected because of their usefulness in battle! Let's take a look at some of the awesome secret cards in the Sun & Moon—Guardians Rising expansion.
An extra burst of power from Mega Evolution can help you defeat your toughest enemies—as long as you have the right Mega Stones. You'll only be able to find a few Mega Stones while travelling around the Alola region, but you can supplement your supply of Mega Stones by entering some special codes. This month's code is for the Abomasite, Aggronite, Manectite, and Tyranitarite Mega Stones, which can help Abomasnow, Aggron, Manectric, and Tyranitar Mega Evolve. There were also special codes released in April, May, and June, so check out those links if you need to catch up.
Each of this month's marvelous Mega-Evolved Pokémon can be extremely powerful under the right circumstances, so we'll break down how to take each one to the next level. But please note that you won't be able to catch these Pokémon in the Alola region. You can transfer them through Pokémon Bank and Poké Transporter if you teamed up with them during your previous adventures, but you'll have to make some trades with your friends if you didn't.
You'll need the Key Stone for your Z-Ring in Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon before your Pokémon will be able to Mega Evolve. Continue exploring Poni Island if you haven't already acquired this Key Item. Your adventures in Alola will nearly be complete once your Pokémon can Mega Evolve, so we'll focus on top tactics for the tough battles you might face against other players or at the Battle Tree. And don't forget that only one of your Pokémon can Mega Evolve per battle!

snakebyte Invites you to Switch to a Better Controller with the Announcement of the Wireless GAME:PAD S PRO
San Diego, CA – July 25th 2017 – snakebyte® group, leading innovators of consumer electronics hardware, announced today the launch of the Wireless GAME:PAD S PRO™, a superior quality, professional grade controller for us with Nintendo® Switch™ and one of the first third party wireless controllers to be available for the system.
Expected to begin shipping in Fall 2017, the Wireless GAME:PAD S PRO follows the recent announcement of a second wave of Switch compatible accessories from the hardware group and follows the Company’s tradition of being amongst the first to market with quality products for the Switch gamer.
Designed to connect wirelessly to the Nintendo Switch using the same Bluetooth® technology as standard JoyCon™ controllers, the Wireless GAME:PAD S PRO offers the precision control of an authentic console game pad, without sacrificing the ease of connectivity and low-latency enjoyed by Switch owners. High-quality analog thumbsticks and digital d-pad combine with dual-vibration motors, delivering enhanced haptic feedback for the complete gaming experience.
Switch owners will immediately appreciate the difference delivered by the high-performance build quality and familiar controller layout, while the integrated Capture Button allows players to snap their favourite moments in an instant! Rechargeable lithium-ion batteries charge the controller ultra-quickly and the Wireless GAME:PAD S PRO also features a user-assigned turbo function to add further customisation to gaming sessions.
“After its impressive start at retail, Nintendo Switch has continued to capture the imagination of gamers worldwide and snakebyte are excited to deliver a truly authentic console game pad for those serious about gaming performance,” said Nick Repenning, CEO for snakebyte USA. “snakebyte enjoyed a successful launch for the Switch thanks to being first to market with a range of quality peripherals for the console and we’re excited to build upon this success with the Wireless GAME:PAD S PRO, one of the first Bluetooth® controllers to launch, and a product that we believe enhances the Switch experience.”
In addition to the Wireless GAME:PAD S PRO, snakebyte will also be launching a wired version of the controller with the GAME:PAD S. Expected to ship alongside the wireless variant the wired controller is identical in build and design, connecting effortlessly to the USB socket of the Nintendo Switch, delivering premium performance for gamers not in need of a wireless connection.
