How to evolve Eevee in Pokemon GO

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on July 22nd, 2016

By now, almost everyone should be hip to how to evolve Pokemon in Pokemon GO (and if not, there's a guide for that). Just gather enough candy of the appropriate type, feed them all to the Pokemon, and evolution happens. It's a miracle that would astound Darwin.

For every rule, though, an exception lurks in the shadows. And when it comes to Pokemon evolution, that exception has a name: Eevee.

It might not seem like there are all that many ways to go fast in a straight line, but CSR Racing 2 begs to differ.

The follow-up to CSR Racing has proven to be a hit for NaturalMotion and Zynga, bringing high production values and a few gameplay wrinkles to a winning drag racing formula. As players work their way up through five tiers of increasingly difficult competition in search of fame, fortune, and more expensive cars, their skills are put to the test in several different ways.

How to unlock more characters in Disney Emoji Blitz

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on July 21st, 2016

One of the big charms of Disney Emoji Blitz is seeing a wide variety of beloved Disney and Pixar characters transformed into smiling emojis. Even someone like the sneaky Randall from Monsters Inc., who probably never cracked a smile on film, is happy as can be until your time is running out.

But while seeing them on the playing field is one thing, the real draw is using your favorite as the avatar representing you. When you first start playing Disney Emoji Blitz, you'll have just a single Disney character at your disposal. Playing through all of the tutorials will grant you a second.

How can you unlock more of them? That's the question we're here to answer for you.

In your Pokemon Go adventures, one thing you're bound to realize is that Pokemon Eggs are the real deal. Not only do they encourage you to get out and walk around -- after all, you can drive to a PokeStop, but you pretty much need to hoof it to hatch those Eggs -- they provide an alternate method to catching Pokemon on a slow day.

If you've found enough of them, you've also undoubtedly realized that the Pokemon Egg comes in three varieties, distinguished by the distance you need to walk to incubate each one. Some Eggs require just a 2 km jaunt, while others need you to walk 5 or even 10 km to see what's inside.

How to play Pokemon GO without killing your battery

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on July 13th, 2016

Just like Benjamin Franklin said the only two certainties in life were death and taxes, there are two equally unavoidable truths about Pokemon GO. The first is that it's a phenomenon on a scale which mobile gaming has yet to see, and the second is that it's an absolute terror for the battery life of your iPhone or iPad.

We're talking about play sessions that can be measured in minutes, not hours, if you attempt to go out for a Pokemon-catching stroll without your battery indicator at 100 percent. And even fully charged, Pokemon GO eats up juice at a dizzying rate.

How to evolve Pokemon in Pokemon GO

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on July 12th, 2016

Unless you're a complete newcomer to the world of Pokemon, you already know that one of the pleasures of playing any game from the franchise is to evolve your pocket monsters into more powerful forms. It's been one of the core concepts of the IP from the start, and it's a part of Pokemon GO as well.

That said, it's also one of the many aspects of the game that isn't explained to new players at all. Unless you already know where to look or simply stumble into the best way to evolve Pokemon, there's nothing leading you in the right direction.

How to get Pokemon to come to you in Pokemon GO

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on July 12th, 2016

If one of the goals that went into the making of Pokemon GO was for Niantic and Nintendo to get more people to go outside and be more active -- and it certainly seems like it was -- them mission accomplished. Go just about anywhere that the smash mobile sensation has been officially rolled out (apologies again to our Canadian friends) and you'll find people out and about trying to add to their collections.

That's great to see, but there are times when it's simply not feasible to track Pokemon down where they live. All of us have work, school, or some other kind of obligation that keeps us tethered to a single spot for hours at a time. Wouldn't it be great if you could get Pokemon to come to you?

How to get more Pokeballs in Pokemon GO

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on July 11th, 2016

Pokemon GO has taken the mobile gaming world by storm, but its success has come despite, and definitely not because of, its almost complete lack of tutorials.

Sites like this one should be grateful though, as the game's bare bones approach to explaining the basics has allowed us to help pick up the slack. In this case, we're going to discuss how to ensure you never run out of that most essential of supplies, the Pokeball.

How to level up in Pokémon GO

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on July 9th, 2016

Now that it seems to be working a little more often for more players,Pokémon GO is turning out to be a lot of fun. Who wouldn't want to be able to catch Pokémon out in real world environments, after all?

The one big obstacle that stands in your way is how little you're told before you set off into the world to try catching those irresistible pocket monsters. A mysterious professor simply tells you he wants help with his research, gives you somePokéballsand an incubator and is like, "Okay, good luck!"

Getting started with Pokémon GO: A Guide to the basics

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on July 7th, 2016

After all kinds of anticipation, Pokémon GO has finally been released on the U.S. and most markets around the world. The first true mobile game from Nintendo, it allows players to live out a fantasy we've all had at one time or another and makes it as close to being a Pokémon Trainer in real life as possible thanks to its augmented reality focus.

And admit, you've definitely wanted to be a Pokémon Trainer at some point in your life.

In similar fashion to previous updates, this one included both new cards and balance changes made to various existing cards. There's even a brand new arena: Frozen Peak, which unlocks once you've reached 2300 trophies.

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on June 30th, 2016

NaturalMotion and Zynga brought a lot of real life cars to the table for CSR Racing 2. From souped up everyday rides made by Nissan and Hyundai to supercars produced by the likes of McLaren and Pagani, there really is something for everyone.

Naturally, the first question a lot of gamers have about a title like this is, "How many cars on there?" That's generally followed closely by another: "How do I get my hands on them?"

A "gotta catch 'em all" joke seems appropriate here, even though we're talking animals in Rodeo Stampede and not pocket monsters. By now you've probably had plenty of rides, tamed some animals and built yourself a pretty nice zoo

In Rodeo Stampede, honing your skills so you can jump from animal to animal and outrun the herd as long as possible is only half the fun. Once you've tamed a few animals, you can bring them home with you.

To live in your floating zoo in the sky, of course! We're not even making that up.
