    The limited edition Nintendo DS featuring Pokémon characters will be making a stateside release. The black DS was exclusive to Japan for a while, but will “soon” be headed to your local retail establishment. Well, so claims an employee from GameStop. The DS, which will cost $129, comes with a bunch of Pokémon stuff, including a Pokémon Mystery Dungeon DVD and a carrying case.… Read More

  • 02/04/09--12:20: Sleepachu kawaii overload
  • Ah, late Winter — that time when a young trainer’s fancy turns to a sleeping shock-mouse. Believe it or not, that’s actually the proverb in Japan, and is the mythical inspiration for the Sleeping Pikachu fest being held at Pokémon centers all over Nippon. Read More

    This is a good news, bad news, type of thing. Nintendo Japan just announced some really cool new hardware (including two new bundles) that’ll be out this December. The bad news is, it’s not coming to the US. Read More

    So I got a random delivery today, and I was quite surprised to see it was from Nintendo. Even more surprising was when I opened the box and saw they had sent me the two latest Pokemon games, HeartGold and SoulSilver. What was even more interesting was when I started to read the enclosed literature that explained exactly what’s new about these two games. Read More

    I’m all for letting your geek flag fly, but this is a bit much. Perhaps he wanted to be able to control the car from the front? At least it’s something that you can hide under you hood. I dunno. Props for knowing your roots and such. Read More

    As the father of a freshly-minted Pokemon fiend, I find myself more and more often forced into the vicinity of Piplip, Liepard, and Purrloin than I’d like to admit. I was pleased, then, that I could bring my son to Saturday’s “Pokemon Festival”/Pokemon White/Black Version launch where we were able to play the new games, Black and White, and enjoy the song stylings of… Read More

    pokemon-y While iPhone launch days and big gadget reveals represent some of my most anticipated events because I’m a tech blogger, a day like today can still awaken just as much excitement. Today is the launch day of a new Pokemon game, you see – the newest installment of the “Catch ‘Em All” franchise, Pokemon X/Y for the Nintendo 3DS, hits store shelves and is being… Read More

    arduino-pokemon Pokemon X & Y has been out for a while now, and there’s been a lot of catching going on in my immediate environs. But it’s still hard to catch rare Pokemon, no matter how much of your life you dedicate to that repetitive task. A new hack using an Arduino Micro microcontroller board, developed by Arduino in conjunction with NY-based Adafruit, makes it possible to cycle… Read More

    Screen Shot 2014-08-07 at 7.49.44 AM I have, in my day, been something of an amateur aquarist, but I never thought to provide my fish with a pastime like playing Pokemon. One intrepid Twitch user has done just that, programming an interface that interprets their fish’s swimming habits as button presses on a virtual controller for the original Red/Blue version of Pokemon. The fish is a betta (or ‘Siamese… Read More

    pokemon-ipad Pokémon, the game franchise that I love more than most real things in the actual world, is coming to the iPad. I would weep for joy were the news not watered down somewhat by the fact that the first game arriving on Apple’s devices isn’t the actual monster collection and battling game that makes up the core franchise, but is instead the Pokémon trading card game. Now I own… Read More

Last month, the newly formed Niantic, Inc. announced that it had begun working on a project called Pokémon GO. Today? The company is announcing a $20M Series A round of funding with investments from Pokémon Company Group, Google and Nintendo. It could see $10M more if it hits… Read More

    Pokemon Go The Facebook event for a San Francisco Pokémon Go crawl on Wednesday has 3,600 people confirmed in attendance, with another 18K “interested” in the event. The event is set to start as a stroll through the city, before culminating in a bar crawl. It’ll be one hell of an overspill at even the biggest bars, however, if even a fraction of the respondents turn up. Read More

    pokemon go When you use Google to sign into Pokémon Go, as so many of you have already, the popular game for some reason grants itself (for some users, anyway) the highest possible level of access to your Google account, meaning it can read your email, location history, pretty much everything. Why does it need this, and why aren’t users told? Also this is definitely the last Poképost for a while. Read More

The makers of the hot, new mobile game are fixing a bug that allowed the app to gain full access to users’ accounts, when they signed in using their Google account information. The company claims it didn’t mean to ask for such elevated permissions, and it will now correct this. The app had the power to access your Gmail, your Google… Read More

    franken-AP Always with his finger on the pulse, Senator Al Franken today sent an official request to Niantic asking about particulars of the Pokémon Go privacy policy. “I am concerned about the extent to which Niantic may be unnecessarily collecting, using, and sharing a wide range of users’ personal information without their appropriate consent,” the letter reads.

    A woman holds up her cell phone as she plays the Pokemon Go game in Lafayette Park in front of the White House in Washington, DC, July 12, 2016.
Pokémon Go mania is sweeping the US as players armed with smartphones hunt streets, parks, rivers and elsewhere to capture monsters and gather supplies in the hit game. The free application based on a Nintendo title that debuted 20 years ago has been adapted to the mobile internet Age by Niantic Labs, a company spun out of Google last year after breaking ground with an "Ingress" game that merged mapping capabilities with play. As of July 11, 2016 Pokémon Go had been downloaded millions of times, jumping topping rankings at official online shops for applications tailored for smartphones powered by Apple or Google-backed Android software.

(Photo: JIM WATSON/AFP/Getty Images) Pokémon Go has quickly become one of the most viral mobile applications of all time. The game is now the biggest ever in the U.S.; it has now topped Twitter’s daily users, and it sees people spending more time in its app than in Facebook, according to reports from various tracking firms.
