Pokémon GO - Team GO Rocket Leaders vs team leaders face-off recap!

Posted by Sunain | November 12th 2019 at 08:29 PM EST
Tags: Pokémon GO, Niantic
Comments: 0
Niantic has written a recap of the events that took place between the Team GO Rocket’s leaders, the leaders of Team Instinct, Team Mystic, and Team Valor in Pokémon GO.


Team GO Rocket Leaders vs team leaders face-off recap!

Trainers, We’ve received word from the team leaders that they’ve fought and defeated the Team GO Rocket Leaders! Since their initial meetings with each of Team GO Rocket’s leaders, the leaders of Team Instinct, Team Mystic, and Team Valor have practiced their battle strategies, learned from each other, and felt inspired by each of you to better prepare for their next battle. To catch up with the events that have led to this point, be sure to check out the Willow Report. Here’s a recap of how the battles went.


Blanche vs Cliff
After Blanche and Cliff’s first meeting and messages challenging each other to battle, Blanche used the Rocket Radar to track Cliff’s location. The radar led the Team Mystic Leader back to the site of that first meeting. Cliff gave another warning, but this time, Blanche was not going to back down.

Battle Results
  • Team Mystic Pokémon remaining: 3
  • Team GO Rocket Pokémon remaining: 0
  • Team Mystic Leader Blanche, utilizing amazing accuracy, took the battle with a clean and effortless strategy and secured the win with all Pokémon remaining.
  • Team GO Rocket Leader Cliff, despite having incredibly strong Shadow Pokémon, chose to use all his shields too early in the battle, leaving his defenses wide open in the late game. The battle ended quickly, with Blanche as the victor.

While this battle was a clear win, Cliff retreated in anger, saying that Team GO Rocket will never be defeated. Blanche left the battle feeling sure that Cliff was planning to set up a new hideout to continue Team GO Rocket’s mission.


Spark vs Sierra
Ready to redeem Team Instinct and defend innocent Pokémon from being turned into Shadow Pokémon, Spark used the Rocket Radar and discovered Sierra at a nearby PokéStop. With Poké Balls in hand, Spark called out to the Team GO Rocket Leader, “Let’s battle!” Despite being startled and appearing slightly annoyed by the Team Instinct Leader’s challenge, Sierra accepted.

Battle Results
  • Team Instinct Pokémon remaining: 1
  • Team GO Rocket Pokémon remaining: 0
  • Team Instinct Leader Spark, with a strong and fast team, was evenly matched against Sierra’s Shadow Pokémon. The excitement of the battle fueled both opponents as they enjoyed the thrill of the matchup.
  • Team GO Rocket Leader Sierra showed a natural talent for battling, countering Spark’s Pokémon, but her experience wasn’t enough to defeat the energetic Team Instinct Leader. The battle was intense and almost ended in a tie, but Spark outmaneuvered Sierra and won the battle.

Sierra was clearly frustrated by Spark’s victory and quickly dismissed it. The Team GO Rocket Leader said that she and Spark were now even and that she’d taken pity on the unprepared team leader by going easy on him this time. While retreating, Sierra threatened that this was not the end and by far not their last battle.


Candela vs Arlo
Candela was ready to face Team GO Rocket Leader Arlo and was prepared for battle. The Team Valor Leader had an idea of where to find Arlo, and headed back to the Ponyta field where she had most recently seen him. Taking Willow’s words of wisdom to heart, Candela channeled all her fiery passion—along with what she’s learned from her fellow team leaders—into strategizing, resulting in a near-flawless battle tactic. As Candela approached the Ponyta field where she’d last seen the Team GO Rocket Leader she was looking for, Arlo emerged from the shadows, apparently having been lying in wait. Did Arlo hear about the previous two battles from Cliff and Sierra? With a quick exchange of nods between the opponents, the battle began.

Battle Results
  • Team Valor Pokémon remaining: 3
  • Team GO Rocket Pokémon remaining: 1
  • Team Valor Leader Candela set the rules, saying she would not battle against Arlo’s Shadow Pokémon, instead demanding they use the same teams that she and Arlo had battled with in the past
  • Team GO Rocket Leader Arlo agreed to those terms, and the battle was intense from the very start. After two of Arlo’s Pokémon fainted, the Team GO Rocket Leader fled from the battle. Due to this exit, the win went to Team Valor.
Arlo hesitated to continue the battle once two of his Pokémon had fainted without taking down any of Candela’s. Another loss wasn’t an option for him. Candela took a step closer and said, “It doesn’t have to be this way. We could be a team again, like old times.” Disgust flashed across Arlo’s face as he spat out his reply: “I’m a leader now, and I don’t need your pity.” The Team GO Rocket Leader then abruptly turned around and fled without finishing the battle. Candela knew this wouldn’t be the last time they met.

Our team leaders and the Team GO Rocket Leaders have faced off, but this battle is not over. While they’ve retreated for now, Sierra, Cliff, and Arlo will set up more hideouts to continue their mission, and we must stop them. Stay alert, as they might be targeting your area. Team GO Rocket’s boss, Giovanni, is out there, and we need accomplished Trainers to face him and show him that the world of Pokémon GO will not be taken over! Professor Willow has Special Research that will prepare you to take on the one and only Giovanni. Do you have what it takes to defeat Giovanni and secure your area against this threat?

Pokémon Sword and Shield - A Few Musical Notes from Game Developer Toby Fox

Posted by Sunain | November 9th 2019 at 05:46 PM EST

Game Developer Toby Fox, Undertale’s creator and composer, has created a song just for Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield! He posted a letter to let people know about the partnership and how it came to be.


A Special Letter and Song from Undertale Game Creator Toby Fox

The indie game creator talks about his musical contribution to Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield.

Toby Fox is a rising star in the world of indie video games, having created the breakout hit Undertale almost entirely on his own. He even composed all the music for it! Undertale caught the eye of the Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield developers at GAME FREAK, who invited him to write a song for the upcoming adventure.

We're delighted to share Toby's letter to Pokémon fans about how our partnership with him came to be and about how excited he is to share his latest song. You can even listen to a snippet of the song by clicking the play button at the top of this page!

Toby Fox Letter

Hi everyone! I'm Toby Fox. Have you heard of me before? Well, that's 'cause I just said my name. LOL

Jokes aside, aren't you interested in how all of this happened? Well... OK. I'll tell you, I guess.

Once upon a time, I created an RPG game called UNDERTALE. For one reason or another, it seems a lot of people from GAME FREAK ended up becoming fans of this game.

One day, I noticed Go Ichinose-san, one of the composers for Pokémon, was following me on Twitter, so... I messaged him out of the blue.

Eventually, we became friends and I was able to meet many other people from GAME FREAK, too! After eating sukiyaki with members of the company one day, we went to a cafe. There, I ordered a bottled green tea and selfishly, randomly asked if I could make a song for Pokémon someday...

... they said yes! Right there in the cafe, they immediately told me a concept for a song I could make, and, as I walked home, my heart was burning with inspiration... a melody entered my head, and as I stumbled past salarymen in the dark, I sang it to myself over and over so I wouldn't forget it!

In the end, that song... became the song you can hear in the game!

It's a fierce track full of explosive power. I wanted to show the energy and passion I felt when asked to create a song for Pokémon! Yeahh! Let's get wild, baby!!! Ah, but wait, wait a second. It's the only song I made, and you can't hear it until you beat the game, so... make sure you enjoy GAME FREAK's music properly first, OK!? Adachi-san and Ichinose-san worked hard.... Don't rush through the whole game just to hear my song.... (No one would actually ever do that.)

Oh, and this goes without saying, but it's a huge honor to be allowed to make music for GAME FREAK! I'm so, so happy and thankful I was allowed to do this. So please look forward to the song, and to Pokémon Sword and Shield, as well! Yamper yam yam!

PS - If you like it, please let GAME FREAK know. They might treat me to sukiyaki again. (No one would ever actually do that.)
