Can you get Hoopa in Pokemon go?

This special research quest is available to all players and hints at Hoopa, a mythical Pokémon from Gen 6, being released into Pokémon Go. ... Everything we know about Hoopa in Pokémon Go. Eurogamer.netPokémon Go Strange Rings special research quest tasks and rewards explained

The Nintendo Switch is soon poised to receive an all-new controller based on the beloved Legend of Zelda franchise. Specifically, this new controller is going to be modeled after the highly popular entry The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and prominently features the game's titular character on the front side. While the controller itself isn't one that is being released by Nintendo, its sleek look definitely would definitely make for a good addition to any Switch collection.

This specific new Breath of the Wild controller comes by way of PowerA, which is a third-party controller company. The new controller in question is known as the "Blood Moon Zelda" model and features Zelda herself on the right-hand side of the faceplate. Meanwhile, the majority of the controller's left and middle portions are taken up by Calamity Ganon, who is the primary villain found in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. You can get a look at the controller itself in the image below.

As a whole, this controller is obviously meant to be a third-party equivalent to the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller. This means that it features Bluetooth technology so that you can wirelessly play any game that you might like either in handheld or docked modes. It's also said to have a battery life that lasts up to 30 hours and also comes packed in with a 10-foot USB-C cable for you to recharge it. Lastly, and perhaps most unique of all, it also includes two additional buttons not seen on the standard Pro Controller on the backside. These "Advanced Gaming Buttons" can be programmed to work in any way that you might see fit.

When it comes to the release date of this new Zelda controller, it's set to arrive next month on August 15. It will also be retailing for $54.99, which is actually less than what Nintendo charges for its own Pro Controller model.

So what do you think about this new Breath of the Wild controller? Do you think you might pick it up for yourself next month? Let me know either down in the comments or over on Twitter at @MooreMan12.

Pokémon Go Rayquaza counters, weaknesses and moveset explained

Eurogamer.net 18 July, 2021 - 07:01am

Everything you need to know about the return of Rayquaza.

Rayquaza has returned to raids in Pokémon Go.

Known as the Sky High Pokémon, due to being a massive green dragon, you may also be able to catch a shiny, black, Rayquaza.

Like the legendary Pokémon it shares the Hoenn region with, including Groudon and Kyogre, Rayquaza will be available in five-star Raids, so, if you want to defeat this mighty dragon, you'll need to form a team of trainers.

Pokemon Go! - Rayquaza Returns Teaser Trailer

Here is a list of Rayquaza counters to help you add it your Pokédex:

Rayquaza will have the following CP ranges:

Rayquaza will be able to learn and use a variety of move in Pokémon Go, including:

Rayquaza is a legendary Pokémon who hails from the Hoenn region. There it's part of the elemental trio, alongside Groudon and Kyogre.

The members of this legendary trio are each a guardian of different elemental sphere. Groudon is the guardian of the lithosphere, so the land, Kyogre watches over the hydrosphere, the world's seas, and Rayquaza guards the atmosphere.

When Groudon and Kyogre clash, which they always seem to do, Rayquaza descends from the sky to stop their fight and help them return to their slumbers.

Since both Groudon and Kyogre have been making appearances in Pokémon Go recently, it only makes sense Rayquaza would eventually return.

Pokémon Go Virizion counters, weaknesses and moveset explained

Eurogamer.net 18 July, 2021 - 04:02am

The grass and fighting-type member of the Sword of Justice makes its appearance in Pokémon Go.

Virizion, the grassland Pokémon, has arrived in Pokémon Go.

The third member of the Swords of Justice quartet, Virizion joins its fellow members - Terrakion and Cobalion.

Like all Legendary Pokémon in Pokémon Go, Virizion is available in five-star raids, so, if you want to add this Gen 5 legendary to your Pokédex, you'll need at least one other trainer to help you take it down.

Here's a list of everything you need to know about Virizion's counters and weaknesses in Pokémon Go:

Virizion should have the following CP ranges:

Virizion can know a variety of fast and charged moves in Pokémon Go, such as:

Virizion, along with Cobalion, Terrakion and Keldeo, is a member of the Swords of Justice, which is a group of legendary Pokémon who help protect the Unova region.

Just like the other members of the Swords of Justice, Virizion is inspired by a character from The Three Musketeers, written by Alexandre Dumas, pére. Virizion's particular inspiration is the character Aramis, who is depicted as being the most romantic, yet vain, member of the musketeers.

Virizion's head also resembles a tricorne hat, which were worn by French musketeers throughout the 17th and 18th centuries.

In the Pokémon mythos, the Swords of Justice are known for protecting wild Pokémon during a forest fire in the Moor of Icirrus. As part of this rescue , Virizion used its impressive speed to act as a shield between the wild Pokémon and the fire itself.

Pokémon Go Mewtwo raid guide: Best moveset and counters

Polygon 16 July, 2021 - 01:35pm

Mewtwo is one of the best attackers in the game

Mewtwo was originally the star of the first batch of EX raids but has since moved to regular tier-five raids multiple times now.

To take on a Mewtwo with ease, capitalize on bug-, ghost-, and dark-type moves. Here are some of the best Mewtwo counters and weaknesses:

As usual, the most important thing is that your attacking Pokémon have moves that are super effective against Mewtwo. If you have the resources, using Mega Evolved Pokémon like Mega Gengar, Mega Houndoom, or even Mega Beedrill, will help immensely.

Weather boosts can also help. Foggy weather boosts dark- and ghost-type moves, and rainy weather boosts bug-type moves.

Once you have your Mewtwo, congratulations! You now have one of the best attackers in all of Pokémon Go. The latest rerelease of Mewtwo includes the exclusive move Psystrike, the strongest psychic-type move. A Mewtwo with Confusion and Psystrike is one of the best overall DPS Pokémon in the game. If you have a legacy Mewtwo that knows Shadow Ball, hold on to it. Shadow Ball still has its uses against ghost- and psychic- types.

For non-legacy moves, Ice Beam and Thunderbolt are great as charge moves, paired with Confusion, and it turns Mewtwo into a pretty good flex attacker.

If Mewtwo is in raids, get out there and horde as many as you can for a huge attack boost in your raid teams and for candy ... or at least grab one to fill in your Pokédex entry.
