    Unplanned outages hit Texas power plants in soaring temperatures Chinas trekking elephants wait for youngster to catch up The many attacks available to your Pokémon in Pokémon Go make them complicated to balance to find the correct combination. If you teach it an incorrect fast move, or don’t give it the best charged attack, you’re going to be overwhelmed any fight whenever you use them.

    Racial divide in vaccination rates persists across much of US GOP delegates in Virginia to choose nominee for governor Azumarill is considered one of the better Pokémon a player can use in Pokémon Go, specifically when competing in the PvP arenas of the Great or Ultra League. These competitions feature Pokémon that do not exceed 1,500 or 2,500 CP, respectively, and Azumarill normally falls in as a better choice for the Great League. However, it’s been around for so long, players have enough candy to earn XL candy and boost it up even further when they reach level 50. What makes Azumarill exceptionally good is its stats and its moveset, so you want to use the best one available to it. © Provided by GamePur Azumarill is Fairy and Water-type Pokémon. It is weak to Electric, Grass, and Poison-type moves, but it is resistant against Bug, Dark, Dragon, Fighting, Fire, Ice, and Water-type attacks. With only a handful of weaknesses, Azumarill can be tough to nail down. What’s really nice is how bulky this Pokémon is and how defensive...
    Two Asian women stabbed in downtown San Francisco, police say; suspect arrested Biden administration backs lifting vaccine patent protections A global challenge is currently live in Pokémon Go, tasking players with capturing 500 million Fairy-type Pokémon before the challenge ends on May 9.  © Provided by Dot Esports Unlike previous Global Challenges, the Fairy-type Catch Challenge is only being updated on the official Pokémon Go Twitter account, not in the game’s Global Challenge Arena. And in the first update since it launched, Niantic has confirmed that players have successfully reached the halfway mark after just over two days.  That means players still have roughly four days to reach that goal of 500 million Fairy-type Pokémon.  If players can successfully reach that goal, they’ll be rewarded with triple capture XP, Pancham making its Pokémon Go debut in raids, and shiny Galarian Ponyta appearing in the game for the first time. Those rewards will go live on May 11 at 10am and last until May 17 at 8pm local time.  It isn’t surprising to see that number, since the challenge is...

In the RPG line of games, Goodra is considered one of the best pseudo-legendaries to trainers to stomp their competition. It seems like the same can be said in Pokémon Go with it boasting some of the highest damage and resistances around. Of course, its not as good as some other Dragon Pokémon due to its single Dragon typing, but it is still a powerhouse and something that can be useful in Gym Battles, Raids, or Fighting Team Rocket Go— but what moves should you run with it to get the best out of it? For its quick move, either Dragon Breath or Water Gun will work depending on what type of build you want your Goodra to be. Dragon Breath is all-rounded, while Water Gun is situationally powerful.

    The price of Pokémon cards is through the roof. Speculators are sinking hundreds of thousands of dollars into individual cards. Some are gobbling up vintage unopened boxes for extraordinary sums, flipping them onto an open market starved for the rarest ones. It’s reached the point where companies that grade the cards for auction simply can’t keep up. Now, the craze is extending to new-in-box Pokémon cards around the country, and retailers are struggling with unhappy customers. The situation peaked in February during a McDonald’s promotion. Participating restaurants gave out packs of collectible cards inside Happy Meals to celebrate the trading card game’s 25th anniversary. These bundles just happened to include some rare, holographic variants of beloved characters. Greedy adults rolled in before many kids could buy their share and wiped out the entire stock to flip them on the secondary market. Rapper Logic bought this Charizard for more than $183,000 at auction. With the buyer’s fee the transaction came close to a quarter million dollars.Image: Iconic Auctions The current situation at retailers like...

The situation can vary, but they’re good to have, and they’re a little rare. When you want to use it on a Pokéstop, click on the small icon...

    The arguments for and against statehood for D.C., Puerto Rico and Guam Democrats accuse GOP of new lows in culture wars When you’re exploring a Pokémon’s natural environment in Pokémon Snap, almost anything can happen while watching them. For many encounters, you need to see them while embarking on a particular route or using one of the items available to you inside the NEO-ONE. When attempting to complete A Light in the Depths request, you’ll need to take a picture of a Lanturn surrounded by Frillish. You can grab this photograph in the Maricopia region on the Lental Seafloor tour. © Provided by GamePur The specific route that contains this Lanturn is on the left pathway of the map. To reach this pathway, you need to use an Illumina orb on a Clawitzer attempting to destroy some rocks. The Illumina orb provides the Pokémon with the strength to shatter this object, granting you passage on the left side of the map. Once you’re going down this route, the interaction won’t happen for quite some time. You’re better off looking...

You can only capture a Smeargle during certain events, and when you can, you have to take a snapshot of another Pokémon. A Smeargle appears after photobombing the picture, and then you can catch it. What’s also unique about Smeargle is how it learns moves. It’s a Pokémon that can learn nearly any fast or charged move in the Pokémon Go, but to learn those charges, you have to take a picture with a Pokémon that knows it. That’s how you build Smeargle and give it one of the better movesets for PvP gameplay. Instead of listing out all of the moves Smeargle can learn, we’re going to list the best options and describe how they work and why they’re a solid combination. © Provided by GamePur Smeargle is a Normal-type Pokémon.

A shadow Pokémon has increased attack power but lower defenses. If you’re considering if the trade-off is a worthwhile choice for Moltres, you need to compare the two options, but we think it’s a good choice. It might not be much better in PvP, but it’s a good option in PvE. If you need a new Fire-type raid Pokémon, shadow Moltres is a good option.
