Niantic has announced some general Trainer Battle bug fixes and updates to attacks to Pokémon GO.

Pokémon GO - Community Note: Attack updates and more

Trainers, In this community note, we’d like to share some info about general Trainer Battle bug fixes and updates to attacks.

Updates to the combat system
We have one last batch of changes to Trainer Battles to set the stage for an exciting upcoming feature.

  • Charged Attacks and switching will now be queued and activated at the end of the current Fast Attack and won’t be overridden by any following Fast Attacks.
  • Certain visual bugs in battles have been fixed.

Updates to existing attacks in Pokémon GO
There have been updates to the following existing attacks in Pokémon GO.
  • Megahorn - This Bug-type Charged Attack now deals more damage.
  • Volt Switch - This Electric-type Fast Attack now activates and generates energy more quickly.

Attacks new to Pokémon GO
Certain Pokémon will soon be able to learn attacks that hadn’t yet been seen in Pokémon GO!
  • Flying Press - We hear this Fighting-type Charged Attack has cropped up in the world of Pokémon GO! However, we haven’t figured out which Pokémon is able to learn it yet. Stay tuned as we investigate!

Pokémon that can learn more attacks
The following Pokémon will be able to learn attacks they couldn’t before.

  • Plusle and Minun: Grass Knot - This Grass-type Charged Attack will help the Cheering Pokémon deal with Ground-type Pokémon that could give them trouble in the Great League.
  • Lanturn: Spark - Lanturn didn’t previously have an Electric-type attack that was comparable to its Water-type attacks in power. Spark will help make Lanturn a strong lead and help it counter Azumarill with supereffective damage and hit Altaria with neutral damage.
  • Ampharos: Thunder Punch - This Charged Attack will make Ampharos a powerful Electric-type attacker in the Great and Ultra Leagues.
  • Masquerain: Bubble Beam - This Water-type Charged Attack will give Masquerain a good coverage attack to counter Fire- and Rock-type Pokémon that could otherwise give this Bug- and Flying-type Pokémon trouble.
  • Vespiquen: Fury Cutter and Air Slash - The addition of these Bug- and Flying-type attacks gives Vespiquen a boost in power since these attacks match Vespiquen’s types, making Vespiquen more viable in battle.

Pokémon that can learn old attacks once again
As part of the group of Pokémon to debut with Pokémon GO, some Pokémon originally discovered in Kanto have had their attacks change a lot over time! We’re adding back some of the stronger attacks a few of these Pokémon used to learn back in 2016 to make sure these attacks are accessible to players who have joined since then. We’ll look at bringing back more of these attacks over time.

  • Raichu: Thunder Shock
  • Magneton: Thunder Shock, Discharge
  • Venomoth: Poison Fang
  • Haunter: Shadow Ball
  • Hypno: Shadow Ball

The official Japanese Pokémon website has a presentation of the Pokémon Booth at the Next Generation World Hobby Fair '20 Winter. Translations follow:

The Next Generation World Hobby Fair '20 Winter


The Next Generation World Hobby Fair '20 Winter will be held at four locations across Japan starting Sunday January 19th. There, we will present the latest Pokémon info, which of course includes info on "Pocket Monsters Sword/Shield", but also on the "Pokémon Card Game", the "Pocket Monsters" anime, and more!

The Max Raid Battle Experience Section
In the "Pocket Monsters Sword/Shield" section you'll be able to experience "Max Raid Battles" against Kyodaimaxed Sekitanzan and Laplace.
Those of you who challenged Sekitanzan (Kyodaimax form) will be given a serial code with which you can get a Kyodaimaxing Sekitanzan, and those of you who challenged Laplace (Kyodaimax form) will be given a serial code with which you can get a Kyodaimaxing Laplace! You'll be able to experience these battles even if you don't have a Nintendo Switch or the game, so make sure to try it out, okay?



*You will need the Nintendo Switch game "Pocket Monsters Sword/Shield" and a place where you can connect your Nintendo Switch to the Internet in order to receive the Pokémon.
*The system's user needs to be linked to a Nintendo Account in order to connect to the Internet. (The user does not need to be subscribed to "Nintendo Switch Online".)
*Please note that this is a one time gift for a single save data in a single game. It can not be received more than once.
*The expiration date for the serial codes to receive the Kyodaimaxing Sekitanzan/Laplace is Saturday February 29th 2020. Make sure to receive it before the deadline is up.
*For info on how to receive Pokémon, go here.

The "Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Rescue Team DX" Section
"Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Rescue Team DX" is the newest Pokémon video game, and it's set for release Friday March 6th. If you answer a special quiz exclusive to this event, you'll receive some items that will help you on your adventure! Not only that, you can also look forward to the Scarfed Pikachu that appears in the game dropping by this section in between the stage shows!



The "Pocket Monsters Sword/Shield" Max Raid Battle Stage Show
During the "Pocket Monsters Sword/Shield" stage show, four extravagant performers, some of them Pokénchi residents, will work together to take on a "Max Raid Battle". Make sure to come watch.

Battle Abareru-kun with the Pokémon Card Game Starter Set V!



Abareru-kun will be at the Pokémon Card stage show, and battles using the "Starter Set V" are going to take place there! Abareru-kun's opponents will be selected from you guys in the audience that are grade school age or younger. Master how to play the Pokémon Card Game and come battle Abareru-kun.

*We will lend you a "Starter Set V" you will use during the match, so there is no need to bring your own deck or any other equipment.
*The schedule has one person from the audience battling Abareru-kun per stage show.

The Special "Pocket Monsters" Anime Stage Show
Play fun games you know from TV, like "PokéRiddles" and "Pokémon Shiritori"! We'll have extravagant prizes too. The super popular Pokénchi residents will be there during the show at the Tokyo fair!



Go Meet Sarunori, Hibanny, Messon and Tachifusaguma!

Trainers, The year of 2019 featured an incredible lineup of live events for Pokémon GO.

Pokémon that will be appearing include the Electric-type Pokémon Mareep and Electrike. Volbeat, a Bug-type Pokémon known for illuminating the skies, will be appearing throughout the city alongside Illumise, a Bug-type Pokémon that guides Volbeat to draw light patterns. Illumise is typically available only in North America, South America, and Africa, so locals might want to catch one while they have the chance! Catch an Unown L to celebrate the light-themed event, and enjoy the lovely sounds of Chimecho, the Wind Chime Pokémon.

Celebrating the culture of Missouri with Safari Zone St. Louis
We’re excited to have the very first Safari Zone event of the year take place in St. Louis, Missouri!

Tickets will be sold through the Pokémon GO app and will be first come, first served. General admission tickets will be $12, and early access tickets will be $18. Early access ticket holders will be able to access event gameplay two hours early.

Trainers can look forward to encountering Mankey, Unown S, Teddiursa, Snivy, and Ferroseed throughout the park. Trainers from the northern hemisphere can sing for joy: Chatot, which usually appears only in the southern hemisphere, will also be appearing in Tower Grove Park!

Saluting the sea with Water-type Pokémon at Safari Zone Liverpool
Ready your sails—the UK’s first-ever Safari Zone will be taking place in beautiful waterfront Liverpool! Enjoy this ticketed event in the magnificent 235-acre Sefton Park from Friday, April 17, to Sunday, April 19, 2020.

During this maritime-themed event, Trainers will have the opportunity to encounter Krabby, Dratini, Chinchou, Unown V, and Oshawott in the wild. Relicanth—typically available only in New Zealand, Samoa, and some other islands in the southwest Pacific—will also be appearing in the wild, so be sure to catch one if you haven’t already.

Tickets will be first come, first served. General admission tickets will be £12, and early access tickets will be £18.

Niantic has announced that for the February 2020 Community Day, players of Pokémon GO will have the chance to vote for the featured Pokémon for the day.

Pokémon GO - Vote for February Community Day’s featured Pokémon

Trainers, Community Day is a key piece of what makes Pokémon GO a unique gaming experience. It’s an event that encourages all Trainers to go out and play together one day a month, and we’ve been endlessly inspired by the impact it’s had on building local communities. To allow Community Day to live up to its name even more, we’re letting Trainers everywhere vote for what the next featured Community Day Pokémon will be.

We hope to take the lessons from this experiment and use them to make Community Day the best it can be, and we thank you for your patience. More info below.

  1. Voting Timeline
  2. February 2020 Community Day Pokémon Candidates
  3. Voting-Day Field Research Tasks

Voting Timeline
Here is what you can expect in the coming weeks.

  1. Announcement of the Community Day candidates: On Wednesday, January 22, 2020 (today), we announce the Pokémon in the running to be the featured Community Day Pokémon, what their event-exclusive attacks will be, and the Field Research tasks you will need to complete to vote for your Pokémon of choice.
  2. Voting day: Voting day will be on Saturday, February 1, 2020, from 12:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. in your local time zone. Votes will be counted via the total number of Field Research tasks completed globally within the allotted time.
  3. Announcement of the winner: On Monday, February 3, 2020, two days after voting day closes, we will announce which Pokémon will be featured for February Community Day.
  4. February Community Day: The Community Day featuring the winning Pokémon will take place on Saturday, February 22, 2020. The featured bonus will be 3× Catch Stardust. Per the last update, Community Day for Trainers in the northern hemisphere will run from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. local time, while in the southern hemisphere, it will run from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. local time.

February 2020 Community Day Pokémon Candidates
Your candidates for the next Community Day are Vulpix, Machop, Rhyhorn, and Dratini. Learn about their Community Day attacks and more below.

  • Vulpix: Vulpix as originally discovered in the Kanto region will be appearing in the wild and in Eggs. Alolan Vulpix will be appearing in Field Research and Raid Battles. Evolve Vulpix or Alolan Vulpix into Ninetales or Alolan Ninetales for the Charged Attack Weather Ball. Ninetales will learn Fire-type Weather Ball, and Alolan Ninetales will learn Ice-type Weather Ball—attacks previously exclusive to Castform. Shiny Vulpix as originally discovered in the Kanto region will become available for the first time in Pokémon GO.
  • Machop: Evolve Machop into Machamp for the exclusive attack Payback. This Dark-type Charged Attack will give Machamp good coverage to deal with Psychic- and Ghost-type Pokémon that might otherwise give it trouble.
  • Rhyhorn: Evolve Rhyhorn into Rhyperior for the exclusive attack Rock Wrecker. Known to be Rhyperior’s signature move, this Rock-type Charged Attack will be a powerful addition to Rhyperior’s repertoire. Shiny Rhyhorn will also become available to encounter for the first time in Pokémon GO.
  • Dratini: Evolve Dratini into Dragonite for the Charged Attack Superpower. This powerful Fighting-type attack is a recent addition to Pokémon GO and could be a strategic option for Dragonite. For example, it could help Dragonite against Ice- and Rock-type Pokémon that would normally have an advantage over it. Superpower could also help Dragonite deal with Steel-type Pokémon that are weak to Fighting-type attacks.

Voting-Day Field Research Tasks
In order to ensure fairness, all candidates’ Field Research tasks will have the same objective you’ll need to complete in order to cast a vote for the February 2020 Community Day Pokémon. The Field Research objective you’ll need to complete will be...catching 20 Pokémon to earn 200 Stardust.

These are the four Field Research tasks you will see on voting day:
  • Vote for Machop Community Day! Catch 20 Pokémon
  • Vote for Rhyhorn Community Day! Catch 20 Pokémon
  • Vote for Vulpix Community Day! Catch 20 Pokémon
  • Vote for Dratini Community Day! Catch 20 Pokémon
The Field Research tasks will be available on voting day, Saturday, February 1, 2020, from 12:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. in your local time zone. Every PokéStop that day will have a voting-related research task. If the PokéStop you spin does not have a task for the Pokémon you want to vote for, please spin a different PokéStop. We will ensure that there is an even distribution of these research tasks among PokéStops, and we’ll account for areas that have fewer PokéStops as well.

One research task completed equates to one vote for the Pokémon listed on the completed task. You may complete more than one voting research task, and they will each count as a vote for whichever Pokémon is listed on each task. Be sure to complete as much research as you can for the Pokémon you want featured for Community Day!

We hope you’re just as excited as we are to have the first-ever community-chosen Community Day Pokémon! You have one week to help campaign for the Pokémon you most want to be chosen—be sure to use #PokemonGOCommunityDay when doing so!

Make your voices heard, Trainers. It’s time for you to choose which Pokémon you want as the next Community Day Pokémon. Let’s GO!

Pokémon TCG: Sword & Shield Prerelease Promo Cards Feature Galar Pokémon

The official Pokémon has announced that they will be distributing 4 Promo Card at Pokémon TCG: Sword & Shield Prerelease tournaments which will be held from January 25th, 2020 until February 3rd, 2020. Participants in the tournament will be able to get 1 of 4 cool promo cards: Rillaboom (SWSH006), Frosmoth (SWSH007), Galarian Perrserker (SWSH008), or Cinccino (SWSH009).

Pokémon TCG: Sword & Shield Prerelease Promo Cards Feature Galar Pokémon

Pokémon TCG Prerelease tournaments let players be the first to get their hands on the newest expansion and try out the latest cards in action. With the launch of the new Sword & Shield Series, Prerelease tournaments will be your first chance to play with Pokémon from the Galar region. Pokémon TCG: Sword & Shield Prerelease tournaments will be held January 25 – February 3, 2020, shortly before the expansion launches on February 7. In addition to getting cards early, you'll be able to pick up 1 of 4 cool promo cards: Rillaboom, Frosmoth, Galarian Perrserker, or Cinccino! Check with your local game store to see when they're hosting one of these events.

When you sit down to play at a Prerelease tournament, you'll receive a Build & Battle Box containing a 23-card Evolution pack, which includes an exclusive foil promo card and is designed to give you a strong foundation for building a new deck. Each box also includes four 10-card booster packs from Sword & Shield. You'll use these cards, plus basic Energy provided by the Tournament Organizer, to construct your own 40-card deck. You'll get to keep all the cards from your Build & Battle Box, whether you use them in your deck or not. If you're lucky, you might even open one of the new out-of-this-world Pokémon V or Pokémon VMAX.

The promo card you'll receive is a cool collector's item, with a shiny foil stamp marking it as a Prerelease promo. It can also be used in your deck, and you're likely to wind up with plenty of cards that match its type. Take a look at the four promo cards available at Sword & Shield Prerelease tournaments, and get some tips to make the most of the one you receive.

Rillaboom (SWSH006)

Sound off with the Grass-type Rillaboom, the final Evolution of Grookey. Its Voltage Beat Ability is super useful no matter the tournament format, allowing you to quickly get lots of Energy onto your Pokémon by grabbing 2 Grass Energy cards from your deck and attaching them to 1 of your Pokémon. Rillaboom will happily take that Energy for itself so it can power up its hard-hitting Hammer In attack. You're less likely to come across super-powerful Pokémon V in Prerelease tournaments, so 140 damage is likely to be enough to Knock Out a lot of foes in one hit.

tcg

Frosmoth (SWSH007)

Like Rillaboom, the chilly Frosmoth helps keep your Pokémon full of Energy with its Ice Dance Ability. It lets you attach a Water Energy card from your hand to your Benched Pokémon—and keep doing that as often as you like during your turn, powering them up quickly so they're ready to attack. Frosmoth is a Stage 1 Pokémon, meaning it's even easier for it to show off its moves. And remember, it doesn't have to be Active to use this Ability; Frosmoth can make an impact even when it's out of the spotlight.

tcg

Galarian Perrserker (SWSH008)

The Meowth of the Galar region take on a hairy new look and evolve in a new direction—Galarian Perrserker! This Pokémon sharpens the attacks of any of your Metal-type Pokémon (including itself) by making their attacks do 20 more damage. In a Prerelease tournament, every little bit helps, and a couple of these Pokémon on your Bench can make a massive difference in battle. At 120 HP, Galarian Perrserker is rather durable, too, making it potentially effective in the Active Spot and attacking with Metal Claw for a boosted 90 damage.

tcg

Cinccino (SWSH009)

The only Pokémon from this lineup who wasn't discovered in the Galar region, Cinccino has some useful skills to contribute to your Prerelease deck. Its Make Do Ability lets you turn over your hand by discarding a card to draw two more. Remember that you have only 40 cards in a Prerelease deck, so make sure you don't draw yourself out of cards. Speed up your Energy attachment by discarding an Energy with the Ability, then getting it onto a Benched Pokémon with Cinccino's Energy Assist attack—which also does 40 damage.
