As previously announced, when Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee come out in November, as well as featuring the original 151 Pokemon, a brand new, Generation 8, Pokemon will also be available in the game, and as such, available to transfer into Pokemon Go as well.

This morning, an apparent mistake in updating the icons for Kecleon (a Pokemon that isn't currently available in Pokemon Go) was picked up by Pokemon Go Watcher @Chrales with what happened to not be icons for Kecleon at all.

The Pokedex number associated with these icons isn't even Kecleon's (#352), rather the number comes through at #891. That indicates that, assuming Generation 8 follows the trend of a somewhat relatively small increase in Pokemon numbers, this new fellow is actually quite towards the end of the Pokedex, rather than the beginning.

Once a year, the faithful gather around their screens to watch Apple's September conference, to get just a glimpse of the latest aluminium tat. Today was no different – but alongside the idealised product videos and reverential corporate preaching, John Hanke, the CEO of Niantic came on-stage to announce news far more relevant to Pokémon players: that Pokémon GO will be coming to Apple Watch. Full details inside...

Niantic have just revealed the newest feature for Pokémon GO: the Buddy System.
The Buddy system will allow trainers to choose a Pokémon from their collection to appear alongside their avatar on the profile screen. The Buddy Pokémon will provide bonuses, such as awarding Candy for walking with them, and trainers will be able to change out their Buddy Pokémon at any time.​

Does Pokemon Go fulfil its lofty promises? Or should it just Pokemon Go Away?
When Pokemon Go was announced last year, it perhaps wasn't really the Pokemon game we were all sitting around waiting to be announced (which if you had asked any of us at the time, was 100% going to be a Pokemon Z style game to follow on from X and Y). Now, after nearly a year of not really explaining all that much about what the game would actually be like, millions of players have gotten the chance to experience it for themselves first hand for the past week (mostly illicitly so far thanks to a frustratingly slow global roll out).

Its success is definitely in no question. For the first time in about 15 years, everyone is talking about Pokemon again and it's already the most successful mobile game ever released in the US and has surpassed install numbers of LinkedIn and Tinder - with even Twitter firmly in its sights. $14million...

Nearly ten months after its initial announcement, Niantic's new Pokémon GO game is now available to download on both iOS and Android in Australia and New Zealand. The game is free, but contains in-app purchases in the form of "Pokécoins". These range from $1.49 AUD for 100, up to $159.99 for 14,500, which is pretty typical for free-to-play mobile games.

There's no word right now on when the game will hit the US, Europe, and Japan, but soft-launches in Australia are quite common for mobile games, as it allows them to safely stress-test their servers and fix any early bugs before unleashing the game on the rest of the world. Expect the game to hit Western shores soon.

You can download the game from your respective app store if you're in the...
