Pokémon Go Strategy Leading Up to the Fest.

As the Fire and Ice event wraps up for Pokémon Go players, the question has turned to, “What next?” I’m going to share my personal strategy for how I’ll approach the next month leading up to Pokémon Go Fest on July 22.
What we know from Niantic is that the gym system is going away for at least the next month. That means that a lot of what Pokémon Go players have focused on, winning and maintaining gyms, will no longer be available, there is an uncertainty around what to do in this time period of gymlessness. My idea is – BULK UP!

NEXT LEVEL:
I’m going to spend the next few weeks attempting to level up and gain as much XP as possible.
I’m using my current stash of coins on lucky eggs. I will strategically evolve as many Pokémon as I can while the lucky eggs are giving me the double XP. I currently sit at level 33 with 950,000 XP needed to get to level 34. So I’m going to attempt to level up by July 22.
CATCH EVERYTHING:
I’m going to catch every Pokémon that I come across. I’m going to spend my time collecting candy and XP by catching anything that I come across. I don’t care how many of them that I have caught before, I’m going to catch it. I want to be in a position to have hundreds of evolves in the next month to help me gain 1,000,000 XP. Catching everything is the best way that I’ll be able to level up. Also, I will gain a ton more Stardust in the process. Also, I can consistently use up my Pokéballs and generate more Great Balls and Ultra Balls.
BAG MANAGEMENT:
My bag is filled up with a lot of revives and potions that will not be needed while there are no gyms. I’m going to remove all of those and focus on filling up my bags with Pokéballs and berries. I can spend time in the week leading up to Pokémon Go Fest replenishing the potions. With my main focus on leveling up and catching everything, I want to have the maximum amount of balls available.
GET STRONGER:
I want to max out as many high CP Pokémon as I can. With the can’t and Stardust I’ll have from catching everything, I should be able to power up many of my stronger Mon to max level. I want to have the strongest lineup I can have by the time July 22 rolls around.
MY LOGIC:
Why am I going to focus on leveling up and getting stronger? There are two reasons. The first reason is, there most likely with me player vs player fighting coming soon. So I want to be in a position of power versus the other players that I come across. So I want to me at the highest level with the strongest Pokémon. I want to be able to win more than I lose.
Most importantly, LEGENDARY POKÉMON!! If Legendary Pokemon are finally released, players may have to fight the Pokémon and weaken it before being able to catch it. So I want to be as strong as I can to be able to catch them! I’m not sure exactly how the process will be, but I want to be prepared.
Let me know what your strategy is going to be as we make our way to July 22 and Pokémon Go Fest, where we hopefully will have PVP and Legendary Pokémon to keep up occupied for the rest of the summer.

How to Choose the Evolution of your Eevee in Pokemon Go

Pokemon Go has been the biggest smash hit of 2016. People all over the world are playing the game nonstop. It has been a giant boost for Nintendo and a great catalyst for exercise!

There are many things in the game that seem random, and many trying to figure out how to control what your Eevee evolves into.

Redditor smithnigel posted about a trick he found to choose the evolution of your Eevee in Pokemon Go.

It would seem that there is in fact a way to force an evolution of your Eevee. The Eevee Brothers from the original anime were named Rainer, Pyro, Sparky and they owned a Vaporeon, Flareon and Jolteon respectively. If you nickname your Eevee either Rainer, Pyro or Sparky, your Eevee will evolve into that desired Eeveelution!

Sparky = Jolteon

Rainer = Vaporeon

Pyro = Flareon

I have tried it on a few Eevees and so have friends, and we’ve seen a 100% success rate. Feel free to give it a try and post back here with results!

I have tried it, along with a few others and it is 100% so far. Watch the video below to see it in action.
