Coming from our friend Emily Rogers...
Well then, I guess we should keep our eyes glued to the internet for some details soon! Would certainly be nice to hear some concrete info after all this talk of rumors and unspecified specs.
- app available on the Play Store called PokeDetector,
- pairs an Android Wear smartwatch with Pokemon GO
- gives a heads-up when you’re near a Pokémon
- keep the game running on your phone while it's in your pocket and be notified on your wrist

A portion of a GamesIndustry interview with Strauss Zelnick, CEO of Take-Two...
"We're believers. We never want to count Nintendo out. They do it over and over and over again. So we feel pretty enthusiastic actually. (Nintendo's position in the console race is) not a slump, it's intentional. They come to market, they do really well, and then they sort of exit the market for a period of time. They've been doing it for like 150 years, and that company has been doing the same thing... They're really thoughtful, they come to market with something they really think is going to work, more often than not it really works, it blows up and then eventually they let it decline and they move on to the next thing. They don't mind having time in between."
Level-5's big Vision conference on July 27th. It looks like the company might be preparing some trademarks for that event right now, giving fans some very interesting things to talk about. Here's some of the trademarks the company just grabbed for Europe.
- Lady Layton
- Inazuma Eleven Ares
- Megaton Musashi
- Otome Hero
- Yo-Kai Daijiten
- Yo-Kai Watch Geraporhythm
Will these all turn out to be new games, or are some of these just trademarks to throw fans of Level-5's scent? I guess we'll find out on July 27th!
Thanks to Animated for the heads up!
Find local dates, friends, or teammates! PokeMatch allows you to meet new people who are also interested in Pokemon Go. It allows you to both meet people to just be friends or to find your new Brock or Misty ;) It is based around the idea of catching Pokemon together. Since the last version, you can now also find friends based on your team.
The application itself works in a fairly simple matter, you sign in with your facebook account and your profile picture will be used as your in-app picture to display to other users'
Once you're in the app you get matched with people who are close to your location. If you'd like to know more about someone swipe them to the right, if not swipe them to the left. If you swipe someone to the the left they will not receive a notification that tells them that you have.
If you have both swiped/liked or caught each other as we like to call it you will be able to send private messages with each other and get to know each other better.
You will either meet many great new friends, or perhaps even your special new Brock or Misty ;)
Tsuruma Park in Nagoya, Japan looks like a Pokeball. That little fact alone was enough to spawn a wild goose chase for Mewtwo in Pokemon GO. Sadly the mention of Mewtwo was a prank, but it was believed by enough people to turn the park into quite a crazy scene.
誰かが「ミュウツーGET！！」て叫んで、みんなダッシュで駆け寄ってきたんだけどコラッタしかいなかった時の深夜１時、鶴舞公園の様子。 pic.twitter.com/OVWPNM2XH3— まつ村 (@matu_k58) July 24, 2016
Well over a thousand people were in the park up until the wee hours in the morning. While there were no Mewtwos caught, it seems that people did have a great time just meeting up, hanging out and playing alongside other Pokemon GO fans.
