The Next Chapter for 'Pokemon GO' Will Be Wearables Like Glasses

  • The Pokemon Franchise Turns 21 Today

Niantic Inc., a San Francisco startup, will unveil three new updates to Pokemon Go this year, plus a new version of its original game Ingress, seeking to build on the success of its augmented reality offerings. Also, the festive Pikachu is part of the limited Pokemon Day event that is now live.

Just recently, Niantic added a new set of pocket monsters to Pokemon GO.

The update has arrived on February 27 and it lasts until March 6. The fans can catch a new Pikachu and Niantic is already planning another huge "Pokemon GO" event. Seeing how the inclusion of Generation 2 pocket monsters in Pokemon GO already started and is happening in stages, it seems that the three massive updates Hanke was referring to won't actually roll out on three occasions, but more of them. However, the Niantic chief insisted that Pokemon Go still sees a high number of daily users.

Takata Pleads Guilty to Airbag Fraud
Plaintiffs argue BMW, Ford, Honda, Nissan and Toyota were aware of unsafe inflator ruptures for years before recalls were issued. At least 16 deaths and more than 180 serious injuries have been linked to exploding Takata airbag inflators.

During this period, anyone playing Pokemon Go can find said Pikachus spawning on the map, though they don't have any special abilities (like throwing cake). The best thing about this is that Pikachu will keep its party hats even if the event ends.

Niantic also stated that in search of Pokémon. Although A.R. glasses probably weren't the Pokémon GO announcement fans were hoping for as part of this keynote, it makes sense as the next step for the game. This is quite a fantastic news for the players worldwide. Players can also transfer their shiny Pokemon but they will be getting a warning message (this warning message was never available earlier) before they try to swap their Shiny Pokemon for the sweets.

The backstory apparently involves a fisherman finding the odd phenomenon in the middle of his town, which doesn't really tell us much about gameplay.
