Pokémon GO - Upcoming Plans

During a talk at the Game Developer Conference, Niantic revealed some future plans for Pokémon GO. In it, they shared some prototype images of the game, showcasing the original characters were to be Brendan/May from Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire before being changed to the characters we have now, as well as revealing a few interesting tidbits. First, there was initially a plan to showcase weather in real-time in the game, such as it being overcast. They also planned to have the day transition into the night gradually with an evening look. Both of these plans are intended for the future. They also reconfirmed their plan to hold big events akin to Ingress Portals for people to gather. Full details of these have yet to be announced but we'll bring details as they come

Pokémon - Trademark

Earlier today, a trademark went live in Japan, registered by Nintendo, Creatures Inc. and Game Freak. This trademark is for the word ポケダリング (literally Pokedaringu, possibly translated as PokéDaring or PokéDulling - we won't get a proper romanisation until some context is given). It's not currently known what this trademark is for, as it doesn't appear to be used in any previous products. However, it could be for a game, merchandise line or even just an item in a game. We'll bring more on this trademark as and when it comes so be sure to keep checking back

Until Next Time, See Ya
