How was Pokemon Go received in India?

Pokemon Go Image

Pokemon Go is one of the most famous AI (Augmented reality) games of our time. Released in 2016, it quickly became a rage within a community of Pokemon fans that are young kids. This rage spread across the world and one could see kids with phones running around the neighborhood pointing the phones at places trying to capture characters and objects in augmented reality.

In fact, many people thought this sort of excitement within the kids was similar to the kind that casino players would experience on hitting jackpot or getting free spin offers. This excitement also spread to countries like India where even though it took a while to arrive, the fandom spent no time to make it popular. It only took six months extra for the game to arrive but anxious gamers had already started finding ways to download the game from American sites so much so that the publishers had to find a way to block these Indian downloads. The other issue with downloading from random sites was that these gamers would not be eligible for all the updates that the publisher kept giving out.  It was only in December 2016 that the game was presented to the Indian market. So how did the game do in India?

Niantic Adjusts to the New Reality with Pokemon GO

The ongoing pandemic has changed the way we live our lives, confining many of us to our homes - and, despite the easing of the lockdown measures in several countries, being locked inside is still a reality for many of us. This situation was not a big change for some dedicated gamers - they were already spending most of their free time inside, in front of their computers.

Pokémon GO players, in turn, didn’t have it so easy. The game relies on people going out to hunt but due to the spread of the virus, now everyone would rather stay inside and play games at the 7Sultans Casino than go out to catch ‘em all. But Niantic, the developer behind Pokémon GO, didn’t abandon its fans due to them being confined to their homes. Instead, they adapted their real-world gaming titles to the new reality.

New features for the new reality

With people locked in their homes, going out and taking steps can rarely be counted toward their daily exercise goal. So, Niantic decided to track their indoor movement instead. Chores like cleaning and exercise like running on a treadmill now count toward game achievements thanks to the improved Adventure Sync features in the games. For those missing the great outdoors, the developers have added the possibility to revisit their favorite places virtually within their games.The social features in the games are also being boosted to allow more meaningful interactions in their virtual worlds. In Pokémon GO, Niantic has enhanced the in-game virtual social features to allow players to team up with their friends and go on Raid Battles together. Also, they plan to add live events to the mix in an effort to reimagine the Pokémon GO Fest this summer.

GO Battle League

Niantic added a new form of gameplay in GO Battle League, one that allows players to join from all over the world - including their homes. The walking requirements for the participants have been reduced from 3km - which was easy to achieve in the pre-Corona times - to zero. Plus, they have reduced the cost of Incense and Poké Balls to help people catch Pokémon without having to go far from the safety of their homes, while still being able to catch Metagross and Pikachu Libre. At the same time, Niantic has added new Pokémon to the rewards, including Stunfisk (Rank 4), Rufflet (Rank 8), and Scraggy (Rank 9). Go Battle League Season 2 has been delayed by a few days due to technical issues that were left to be solved.

 

Pokémon’s Quest at the Behest of Wizards of the Coast

Have you ever wondered why Nintendo didn’t continue its partnership with Wizards of the Coast? It seems like a question that we’ve all asked, even indirectly. Yet, though we’ve all asked this question, it’s also more than likely that we haven’t thought about it for too long, nor really cared that much, either. It just seems to be a fact of life that we all mutually accept as something that happened, and is now forgotten.

Film Review: Detective Pikachu

Film Review: Detective Pikachu

When the theater grew dark, there was an unsaid intensity that everybody was feeling in the room. It was almost audible in the unusually unsettled audience, and to be honest, I felt it, too. It sounds almost stupid really; a dark room full of adults staring at a movie screen like their lives depended on it, but in a way, they did. Or, at least the lives that many had built up in their childhood was about to be represented in a completely different way, and that feeling of uncertainty towards just how it’d turn out, was everywhere.

Detecting the Detective Pikachu TCG Sets

Exhaustive. It’s hard to describe a series with twenty one movie adaptations (arguably more if you count TV specials and other lesser-known releases), in any other way. Now, Pokémon is set to release its twenty second, and first live-action film in theatres this May. Change is here. For one thing, every movie came with a promotional card or set of cards, but as the years went by, these exhausted themselves along with the movies. It may be cool to own an Ancient Mew card from the first movie, but nobody’s really talking about the promotional Keldeo card from Kyurem vs. the Sword of Justice. In fact, with some promotional cards like the above-named Keldeo card, not only are they not talked about, but they’re not really worth anything, are basically useless in competitive play, and are not valued among collectors. It’s a harsh reality. But, Detective Pikachu has promised us something different, and delivered. This new Detective Pikachu TCG expansion is fresh, exciting and even a little risky. But, is it worth the hype?

Pokemon TCG is Truly the Only Suitable TCG for Young Kids!

Parents let me explain why Pokemon TCG is truly the only suitable TCG for young kids. I am a father of four and have scoured the Earth for suitable games for my children to play that are fun yet provide a challenge to play. And one of those games is Pokemon TCG.

First off everyone who gives Pokemon a chance falls in love it it. From super cute to super cool there is a Pokemon character for everyone.My children range in age from 18 months to 10 years old. As they grow their tastes change but one thing has remained the same. They all love Pokemon. My 5 year old son loves, you guessed it, Pikachu, Rowlet, Litten and Poplio. The super cute Basic Pokemon are easy for the littlest ones to love. My middle son is 7 years old and now cares more for Ultra Beasts and the Evolved Stage Pokemon which are stronger and have cooler abilities. Don’t get me wrong he still has a soft spot in his heart for Pikachu. Then you have my 10 year old daughter. She’s kind of on the darker side of Pokemon right now. She’s into, that’s right, Dark and Ghost type Pokemon, with a side of Fire type. She likes Gengar and Banette most right now. As for me, Daddy likes Charizard and Rayquaza. You can’t go wrong with some iconic dragons. There is a Pokemon character for everyone to love so go find out which one is calling you.

Why Pokémon Go can be good for your Health

It’s rare for anyone to suggest that a video game could be good for your well-being. After all, most releases are associated with youngsters and their consoles who find themselves confined to their rooms as they battle in front of the screen.

Too much time indoors isn’t healthy for anyone but that’s why Pokémon Go has bucked a trend to provide computer gaming with some better publicity from medical science. The game has been a roaring success since its release but it also deserves praise for its potential health benefits.

LET’S GET WEIRD WITH POKEMON SPINOFFS

We love the idea of Pokémon spinoff games. It makes sense that there are already many, given the scope of the Pokémon world, and the opportunities that it represents, yet we can’t help but always hope for more. More games, weirder spinoffs, crossing every genre imaginable. Sure, not all of these can end up being hits, but there is always a place for a gaming Magicarp, even if just as a stepping stone to a gaming Gyarados.
