  1. Wow! It sounds like this guy IS the reason Nintendo isn't doing so hot in Russia. Not getting games translated properly, ending PKMN TCG sales, and just assuming more people wanted Let's GO! Pikachu over Eevee, thus providing less copies of Eevee. How the hell did this guy become CEO?! o_O On top of that he tries to blacklist people who leave Nintendo. WTF?!!!! WHAT AN ASSHOLE!! WHO THE HELL DOES HE THINK HE IS?!!!!! Hopefully with all this news coming out the higher-ups at NCL will get this fucktard out of there.
  2. Nice to know you don’t need Let’s GO! to get Meltan. 😊
  3. Some other things I'v noticed... - PKMN + trainer models now take a sec. to load (no issue with wild PKMN), as before they loaded instantly after the initial first time load of the models. - As mentioned above with the menus (PKMN Dex, Shop, Items, Trainer Menu), I've also noticed it a loads half a sec after the sound effect plays. So far I haven't noticed anything else. Everything else seems to run smooth (the game boots at the same speed, which is good). I really hope this is just an issue with the latest update and not iOS 12 on the iPhone SE (like i mentioned above, all other apps seem to run fine). I had to go though all this BS with updating iTunes (why does this always take forever?) and what not just to get iOS 12 my iPhone SE (I never wanted to update to it in the first place), so I could continue using PKMN GO, and the game is not going to run as smooth like on iOS 9? Thanks, Niantic! -__- Though, I guess I should be happy that there are no major issues. Still, It's kind of annoying after being so used to the game running so smoothly on iOS 9.

    Mario Kart 8 Thursday Night Throwdown! @ 10pm ET!

    2nd Thurs. of the month is fine with me...That is, if everyone doesn't want a separate night for battles.

    Mario Kart 8 Thursday Night Throwdown! @ 10pm ET!

    Yeah, I remember that and having a separate night on Wed. for MK8DX, since not every had the game or a Switch. As for battles, I wound't mind the 3rd Thursday of the month being battle night. This would be great for those who want to do battles and it also wouldn't interfere with other game nights. BTW, MK7 was on Monday nights at 10pm ET.
  6. I've noticed that after updating my iPhone SE to iOS 12 that some parts of PKMN GO don't run as smooth. Mainly, when I open my PKMN list it hangs there for half a sec (I can see the button is highlight showing that it has been pressed) and when it loads the animation isn't that smooth. I'm not sure if this is an issue with the latest update or just how the game runs on an iPhone SE with iOS 12. I haven't had any issues like this with any other apps. Anyone one else noticing that some parts of the game don't run as smooth after the latest update?
  7. WTF is this and why the F is it on Switch? O_O’ To be fair, I’ve seen far worse on the Switch eShop...But seriously, where’s your quality control, Nintendo!!!
  8. Back when the Spiritomb special research came out with that catch 108 PKMN task, It seemed to me that PKMN were slightly harder to catch. So, it's possible they made PKMN a bit harder to catch because of this.
  9. My iPhone SE is now updated and the latest version of PKMN GO is installed! Though, I could only update it via iTunes which also need to be updated. All this just for PKMN GO. To anyone running iOS 12, I noticed that the Bluetooth icon does not appear next to the batt. % icon when on/connected. Did they remove this icon?
  10. Seriously, you shouldn't have to worry about this when updating an older device. If it supports the latest update, it should run fine with no major issues. In the past it seems like Apple was still supporting older devices even though the latest iOS runs like shit on it (Ex. iOS 7 on iPhone 4), just to get people to upgrade their device. I guess with all there recent backlash of Apple showing down older phones, they set out to make damn sure iOS 12 runs well on older devices.
  11. Thanks! I recently got to check out iOS 12 on my mom's iPhone SE and it seems to run just fine on it. Though, like I previously mentioned I'm more worried about battery life. Coming from some comments I got on that tweet, it seems I not the only one bummed that they are dropping iOS 9 support.
  12. This video literately tells us noting about the game, unlike with the PKMN GO announcement trailer where it showed what we could expect from the game. This sounds like it could be pretty cool, but I'm not that into The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, though I do like the books/movies. Not sure how much Niantic is involved with the development of they game, but I think they are just licensing out their AR map engine they created of Ingress and PKMN GO.

    Detective Pikachu (Movie) - FIRST TRAILER!!!

    I'll be honest...That was actually better than I was expecting. Seeing all those realistic PKMN was a bit jarring aft first, but it made me think that a live-action version PKMN Origins would be pretty cool. Not sure how I feel about Ryan Reynolds voicing Pikachu, but it totally fits the style they're going for. I dig that movie poster, but it doesn't really scream PKMN movie. EDIT: *VIEW AT YOUR OWN RISK!*
  14. Got my shiny Cyndaquil and Typhlosion with Brun Blast.
