Pokémon GO Valentine’s Day Celebration 2020

Trainers, Love is in the air! Our annual Valentine’s Day event is back. From Friday, February 14, 2020, at 8:00 a.m. to Monday, February 17, 2020, at 10:00 p.m. in your local time zone, pink Pokémon will be appearing more often in the wild, in raids, in Eggs, and as Field Research encounters.

Audino, the Hearing Pokémon, and Alomomola, the Caring Pokémon, will be making their Pokémon GO debut! They’ll be appearing in the wild and hatching from 7 km Eggs. They're rare though, so you might encounter them only if you’re very lucky! Audino and Alomomola will remain available (and incredibly hard to find!) in Pokémon GO after the event ends.

Regular Lure Modules activated during the event will last six hours, and you’ll receive a 2× Catch Candy bonus. Pink Pokémon—like Lickitung, Porygon, Cleffa, Igglybuff, Tyrogue, Smoochum, Luvdisc, and Happiny—will be hatching from 7 km Eggs. If you’re lucky, you might encounter a Shiny Chansey in the wild or hatch a Shiny Happiny!

Celebrate the lovely occasion with Valentine’s Day–themed avatar items like the Luvdisc Top, Ripped Luvdisc Jeans, and Luvdisc Shoes. Get them in the Style Shop!

Lickitung Raid Day
To continue the pink Pokémon festivities in celebration of Valentine’s Day, there will be a Raid Day featuring Lickitung on Saturday, February 15, 2020, from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. in your local time zone! Lickitung will be in four-star raids and know Body Slam! You can receive up to five Raid Passes at no cost during the event by spinning Photo Discs at Gyms. You cannot hold more than one of these Raid Passes at once, and they will not be available after the event ends. Lucky Trainers might encounter Shiny Lickitung!

Have a happy Valentine’s Day, Trainers! Be sure to follow us on social media, opt in to receive push notifications, and subscribe to our emails to stay updated. Let’s GO!

Discover iconic Liverpool locations with the City Explorer Pass during Safari Zone Liverpool

Trainers, 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. As previously announced, 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.

Interested in spending this spring weekend by the water with some splashy Water-type Pokémon? You can grab a ticket once tickets go live on Friday, February 14, 2020, at 8:00 a.m. GMT! Tickets 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 early and receive two additional hours of gameplay. Along with the general admission and early access tickets, we will also be offering an additional experience: the City Explorer Pass.

We’re excited to test out the City Explorer Pass, which will be available for purchase alongside Safari Zone tickets for those who want to get up and GO for the full event weekend—even outside the Safari Zone event area! The City Explorer Pass will be £8 and will be available for purchase only along with a Safari Zone ticket. It cannot be purchased after a ticket order is complete and is not eligible for refunds or transfers.

With the City Explorer Pass, you’ll be able to take part in City Explorer Raids, hatch Eggs faster throughout Liverpool, and access other exclusive bonuses for the full event weekend. City Explorers will enjoy the following benefits.

  • 10 City Explorer Raids on a 72-hour timer at iconic city locations that will be chosen in partnership with the City of Liverpool. These raids will be accessible only by City Explorers.
  • 1/2 Hatch Distance when Eggs are placed into Incubators within the city.
  • Exclusive Field Research tasks will be granted by PokéStops throughout the city.
  • Regular Lure Modules will last four hours if placed by City Explorers within the city. All Trainers will benefit from those four-hour Lure Modules, not just City Explorers.
  • Increased Incense duration within the city.

The City Explorer Pass gameplay experience will last the full weekend, from Friday, April 17, at 6:00 a.m. to Sunday, April 19, at 10:00 p.m. GMT. We know that Trainers come to our Safari Zones from all over to experience a special one-day Pokémon GO live event. By offering an additional experience that spans the entire weekend, we hope that City Explorers and their friends can embark on even more adventures throughout the host city. We’re excited to bring Pokémon GO adventures to the whole area and to explore the city together!

Are you ready to take in the fresh ocean air, Trainers and City Explorers to-be? Be sure to log in to Pokémon GO on Friday, February 14, 2020, at 8:00 a.m. GMT if you want to purchase a ticket to Safari Zone Liverpool along with a City Explorer Pass!

Pokémon Sword and Shield Information and Picture Leaks Joint Statement

Posted by Sunain | February 11th 2020 at 05:16 PM EST
Tags: Press Release, Nintendo, The Pokémon Company, Pokémon Sword, Pokémon Shield
Comments: 0

In a joint statement released today by Nintendo and The Pokémon Company, they announced that an employee for the Portuguese website FNintendo was responsible for posting information and pictures of Pokémon Sword and Shield to the Internet before its release date.

Image

Joint statement from Nintendo and The Pokémon Company

In early November, Nintendo identified a number of photographs taken from game play that revealed multiple new and unannounced Pokémon from Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield. These photographs had been posted online and Nintendo, together with The Pokémon Company, quickly identified the person responsible for these leaks, and took immediate action. FNintendo also posted a statement regarding this issue.

These Pokémon were leaked by a reviewer for the Portuguese website FNintendo, who had received an early copy of the game for review purposes. Both he and FNintendo failed to handle confidential material, resulting in a clear breach of the confidentiality agreement between Nintendo and the media outlet. As a result, Nintendo will no longer work with FNintendo.

Nintendo will always protect its intellectual property and brands. Leaks hurt not just Nintendo, but the thousands of employees who work hard to bring games to market, and the millions of fans around the world who look forward to news and surprises.

To surprise and delight players through new experiences is a shared passion for Nintendo and The Pokémon Company. We will pursue all avenues to preserve surprises for players of future Pokémon titles.

FNintendo's statement

To our readers,

At the beginning of November, a series of off-screen photographs leaked multiple new and unannounced Pokémon from Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield. We want to take this opportunity to openly admit to our readers that FNintendo was responsible for leaking some of these photos.

Nintendo offered us a copy of the game for review purposes, with clear embargo guidelines, to which we agreed. This copy was then sent to one of our reviewers, who leaked the information. Following the investigation, FNintendo severed its relationship with this reviewer.

Our relationship with Nintendo Portugal dates back 11 years, but our part in this leak is a clear breach of the confidentiality agreement between us, and, as a result, a total breach of trust with Nintendo. We recognise it is impermissible to break embargo guidelines and we failed to handle the review materials with sufficient care.

We fully respect Nintendo's decision to cancel the confidentiality agreement between our companies as a result of this breach of trust, and accept that we will no longer receive products from Nintendo, nor will we be invited to attend their events.

We want to apologise to Nintendo and The Pokémon Company, and to our readers for letting them down.
