A Pokémon GO Strategy for All Seasons

Recently, Pokémon GO introduced a dynamic weather system that affects how Trainers interact with Pokémon based on real-world weather conditions. More than a neat visual effect or simple gimmick, this meteorological modification changes the way that you should approach the game whether (heh) you're catching Pokémon or going up against a powerful Raid Boss in a battle. Let's take a deeper look at these updated mechanics to make sure you're getting the most out of your Pokémon GO experience.

Millions of people are still playing Pokemon GO, and I have no doubt plenty of you are as well. I'd love to hear how often you pop into the game. Is it still an every day affair, or have you dropped off to a couple times a week, or even less?

Honor the New Year with a Safari Zone event at the Chiayi Lantern Festival

For thousands of years, the Lantern Festival has symbolized good luck and fortune. See beautiful lights and honor the New Year with Pokémon GO during a special Safari Zone event at the Chiayi Lantern Festival in Taiwan, hosted by the Chiayi County government from February 26 to March 3.

Dratini, Mr. Mime, Growlithe and many other Pokémon will be appearing at the Pokémon GO Safari Zone event among the lanterns during the daytime, starting at 7:00 AM. At 5:00 PM, as the lanterns begin to glow, Trainers will see Chinchou and Lanturn in the wild! There will also be Pokémon to discover around Puzi City and the rest of Chiayi County, so make sure you walk around and enjoy all that Chiayi has to offer. And of course, don’t miss the beauty of the lanterns, which will bring good health, wealth and love in the New Year.

We also want to extend our thoughts and condolences to those affected by the nearby earthquake. We hope those lanterns will bring the people of Taiwan comfort, and we sincerely wish you healing and a strong recovery.

Pokemon GO glitch lets you catch Pokemon quicker
