New Evolution Item Mechanics Leak, No Free Storage and Pokestop & Gym Update

Here’s a quick roundup of recent news in Pokémon GO. Some are good, some are bad, but overall it’s a good time to be a GO Player. You should follow us on Twitter for real time updates and news.

Evolution Items Mechanics Leak

In a very exciting Tweet, serebii shared a preview of how Evolution items will work in Pokémon GO. The leak is verified, but we are unfortunately unable to name the source. Here you go, feast your eyes on Scyther and Metal Coat:


We won’t receive a free Storage Upgrade

Niantic made this crystal clear on their official Twitter. Instead of a free Storage Upgrade, the in game store price is reduced by 50% from February 16th – 28th (PST zone). That brings a Storage Upgrade to 100 Coins, making it very, very affordable.

To help you prepare for upcoming adventures, Pokémon Storage upgrades require 50% fewer PokéCoins starting the afternoon of Feb. 16–28 PST!
We’re not quite surprised by this, but we would still like to get at least 1 free Storage upgrade.
