Ryota Otsubo's Event Pokémon Distribution

The official Pokémon website has announced that a Krookodile based on the one used by Ryota Otsubo in the 2017's Pokémon World Championships Video Game Masters Division, will be distributed at the Pokémon North America International Championships at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio, between Friday, July 6th, 2018 and Sunday, July 8th, 2018.


Get a Champion's Krookodile!

Stop by the North America International Championships to add last year’s champion's Pokémon to your game.

The Pokémon North America International Championships features some of the finest players in the world battling it out in fierce Pokémon Trading Card Game and video game competitions. To commemorate the hard work that goes into being the best, Pokémon fans will be able to get a Krookodile that matches the one that Ryota Otsubo used to become 2017's Pokémon World Championships Video Game Masters Division Champion. During his victory, Ryota's Krookodile held a Groundium Z Z-Crystal, which this Pokémon will not be holding. You can, however, let your Krookodile hold the Groundium Z that you earn from Hapu when you defeat her in the Poni Island grand trial.

Come to the Pokémon North America International Championships at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio, between Friday, July 6 and Sunday, July 8, 2018, and look for signs there to find out how to get your Krookodile via local wireless. You'll need your own system in the Nintendo 3DS family and a copy of Pokémon Ultra Sun, Pokémon Ultra Moon, Pokémon Sun, or Pokémon Moon to get Ryota's Krookodile. You can receive Ryota's Krookodile even if you don't have an event badge.

From June 21st, 2018 until July 19th, 2018, players of Pokémon GO will be able to battle Regice in Raid Battles. Regirock and Registeel will be available later in the summer.


The Legendary Pokémon Regice Is Ready for Bone-Chilling Raid Battles!

Trainers, Pokémon’s legendary year continues with three Legendary Pokémon originally discovered in the Hoenn region harnessing their power to take over Raid Battles in Pokémon GO, starting with Regice on June 21!

Regice, the Iceberg Pokémon, has awakened from its slumber and will be the first to appear in Raid Battles across the world until July 19. This Ice-type Legendary Pokémon has a strong defense, but is weak to Fire-, Fighting-, Rock-, and Steel-type attacks.

The presence of this defensive powerhouse kicks off a summer of earth-shattering events, as Regirock and Registeel will also roar into Gyms worldwide!

Don’t miss this chance to catch this Legendary Pokémon before it returns to another long slumber! Stay safe, and happy exploring!

Make Way for Friends, Trading, and Gifting in Pokémon GO!

Niantic has announced that new features will be coming to Pokémon GO and they include: Friends, Trading, and Gifting. Further details are below in the press release.


Make Way for Friends, Trading, and Gifting in Pokémon GO!

Trainers, We’re excited to share brand-new ways to interact with your friends in Pokémon GO! The Friends feature will start rolling out to Trainers later this week, allowing you to connect with your real-life friends and keep track of their adventures in Pokémon GO. You’ll be able to send them items, earn bonuses—and even trade Pokémon!

In order to add a friend in Pokémon GO, you must first ask them to share their Trainer Code with you. To invite a Trainer to become your friend, simply enter their Trainer Code and then send them a request. If they accept, you’ll become friends, and you’ll see them in your Friends List.

Trainer Profile / Friends List

When you spin a Photo Disc at a PokéStop or Gym, you have a chance of receiving a special Gift. Although you can’t open the Gifts you receive from PokéStops, you can send them to a friend on your Friend List. Inside the Gift will be a stash of helpful items, which your friend will receive along with a postcard showing where you picked up your Gift. Gifts can also include a special surprise: an Egg that, when hatched, will contain an Alolan form of a Pokémon originally discovered in the Kanto region!

Gift / Open a Gift / Send a Gift / Gift Postcard

When you send a Gift to a friend or participate in a raid or Gym battle with them, you can increase your Friendship Level. As your Friendship Level builds, you’ll then unlock bonuses when you play together. For example, when you and a Great Friend participate in a Gym battle or Raid Battle together, you can earn an Attack bonus to give your Pokémon an edge! You can increase your Friendship Level once per day per friend.

Good Friend / Great Friend / Ultra Friend / Best Friend

You can also build your Friendship Level by trading Pokémon with a friend. If you’re near a friend and have a Trainer Level of 10 or higher, you can trade Pokémon you’ve caught with that friend. Completing a trade earns a bonus Candy for the Pokémon you’ve traded away, and that bonus can increase if the Pokémon you traded were caught in locations far apart from each other! All trades are powered by Stardust, and some trades require more Stardust than others. As you build your Friendship Level with the friend you are trading with, you’ll find that you can complete the trade with much less Stardust.

Trading with Friends / Trade with Stardust / Special Trade / Candy Bonuses / Pokémon CP and HP in Trade

Certain Pokémon, such as a Legendary Pokémon, a Shiny Pokémon, or a Pokémon not currently in your Pokédex, require a Special Trade to complete, so keep that in mind before trading away that golden Magikarp! Special Trades can only occur once per day with a Great Friend or Best Friend, and it often requires a lot of Stardust to complete a Special Trade. Special Trades are a great way to show a friend how much you care!
