Latios and Latias: How to catch the Eon Duo in Pokémon Go

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

These delightful little dragons are no joke in a battle, so make sure you come prepared!

Pokémon Go has made Latios and Latias, known originally as the Eon Duo, available in different places across the world from April 3 to May 8, where they will switch places and be available everywhere else for until June5. If you want them, you’re going to have to beat ’em and catch ’em!

What is Latios and Latias in Pokémon Go?

Latios and Latias are Legendary Pokemon from the Hoenn region, making them Generation 3 Pokemon. These Dragon/Psychic creatures has shown up in several episodes of the show and movies, usually show up together. In Pokemon Go, you’ll be battling them individually like you would any other Legendary raid.

Here’s the official description from Pokemon:

Latios has the ability to make others see an image of what it has seen or imagines in its head. This Pokémon is intelligent and understands human speech.

And from Bulbapedia:

Latios is a bird-like, dragon Pokémon with an aerodynamic body. The lower half of its body is blue with jet-plane wings and fin-like feet. It has a red triangular marking on its chest. By tucking its wings and forelimbs, it can fly faster than a jet. It has white and blue arms that can be tucked into its body. The upper-half of its body is white. It has triangular ears and a blue face with a white oval in the middle. Latios is a male only species; Latias is the female counterpart.

How do you beat the Legendary Latios and Latias Raid Bosses in Pokémon Go?

Since Latios and Latias are Dragon and Phychic hybrid types, the list of true weaknesses is actually a little on the slim side. Broadly speaking, the kinds of attacks you want to use are:

  • Bug
  • Dark
  • Fairy
  • Dragon
  • Ghost
  • Ice

You should avoid using Pokemon these two are strong against, which includes:

  • Electric
  • Fire
  • Grass
  • Fighting
  • Psychic
  • Water

The Pokemon/Move combinations to use against these kinds of opponents are:

Pokémon Fast Move Charge Move
Dragonite Dragon Tail Outrage/Draco Meteor
Rayquaza Dragon Tail Outrage
Tyranitar Bite Crunch
Scizor Fury Cutter X-Scissor
Gengar Shadow Claw Shadow Ball
Absol Snarl Dark Pulse

There aren’t a ton of differences between fighting Latios and Latias, but the one big difference is access to the Charge Move Solar Beam. Some versions of Latios will have it, but no versions of Latias will have it. This means you can use different anchor Pokemon to fight the Eon Duo depending on what your full complement of team members looks like. For example, Kyogre and Groudon can typically absorb quite a bit of damage but Solar Beam will tear right through them both.

It’s also important to know Latios and Latias have access to multiple Fast Moves which truly live up to the name. These Legendaries attack faster than just about anything else you are likely to encounter in this form, and they hit hard. Standard versions of Latios and Latias are 49323 Raid Boss CP and 45704 Raid Boss CP respectively, so not only do the Eon Duo hit hard and fast but they also absorb quite a bit of damage and don’t have a tone of easy to exploit weaknesses. If you are used to taking on a Legendary Raid with 4-5 people, you may want to make sure you have at least one other person to help with these fights.

How do you catch the Legendary Latios and Latias Raid Boss in Pokémon Go?

Legendary Raid Bosses are really hard to catch by design, but Latios and Latias aren’t quite as difficult to hit as some of the others you may have encountered so far. The Eon Duo are the smallest of the Hoenn Legendaries by far, which means they are closer to you and you don’t have to throw the ball quite as far back.

That having been said, these are still hovering dragons which move around quite a bit. For the best results, I recommend:

  1. ABC. Always be curving. Once you can nail Curve Ball every time, you’ll get a 1.7x bonus every time.
  2. Max out your medals. If you have both the Flying and Fire medals, it’s an automatic 1.1x to 1.3x bonus to your catch.
  3. Play patient. Raid bosses defend better than normal Pokémon, so wait until 3/4 of the way through their attack animation and then make your catch. You should hit just as the ring appears.
  4. Consistency counts. Aim for the smallest throw bonus you can nail every time. If that’s Nice, it’s nice. If that’s Great or Excellent, even nicer. But better the bonus you get then one you miss, and every extra 1.3 to 2x counts.
  5. Nanab over nothing. If you have a hard time even hitting the Ho-Oh, use a Nanab. Some chance is better than no chance.
  6. Go Golden: If you have Golden Razz Berries, and the Raid Boss you’re trying to catch is either your first or the higher stats (IV) you’ve encountered, lay them on. Their 2.5x modifiers are the best in the game.
  7. Keep hitting. Your chance to catch with any one Premier Ball is low but your chance to catch with multiple Premier Ball hits over multiple Raids becomes close to a statistical sure thing. So never give up!

How do I know if I caught a good Latios or Latias?

After you’ve caught one or both of the Eon Duo, you can use the Appriase function in your Pokedex to see if you caught a good one. In this case, there are two primary versions of each Pokemon to keep an eye out for.

Latios will show up as a 2083 CP Pokemon at 100% IV in normal catch situations, but if you catch while the weather bonus in-game is Windy you will see 2603 CP at 100% IV.

Latias will show up as a 1929 CP Pokemon at 100% IV in normal catch situations, but when the in-game weather is Windy it will be boosted to 2412 CP.

Basically, you want to go and fight in Eon Duo raids when it is Windy, and you’ll get the best possible versions of these Pokemon.

Now get out there and catch ’em!

Niantic Will Reportedly Settle the ‘Pokemon GO’ Fest Lawsuit for over $1.5 Million

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

You’re probably aware of how big a disaster the Pokemon GO [Free] Fest was in Chicago. Eli was at the fest and was posting updates as the situation progressed. Niantic apologized for the event and posted about how they worked with a partner who spoke to major carriers to ensure everything goes smooth. Things obviously didn’t turn out well and some people sued. We hadn’t heard anything about this until now and it looks like Niantic is going to settle it and a dedicated website will go live for the settlement.

A TechCrunch report has now been published stating that Niantic will finally settle the lawsuit by paying out over $ 1.5 million dollars. This is to cover the costs attendees picked up on the way to the event including hotel costs, airplane tickets, pariking fees, and more. An official website is supposed to go up for the settlement. People claiming to be a part of the settlement will need to have been checked in at the fest.

Any money left over after all claims and lawyer fees in addition to other costs will be split evenly and donated to the non profit organization Chicago Run and the Illinois Bar foundation. No money will come back to Niantic as per the report. If you missed out on the fest, read up here on what actually went down.

Pokémon Go and Mew: How to finish Mythical Discovery Field Research fast!

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

How do you complete the Mythical Discovery Field Research in Pokémon Go and get Mew as fast as possible? Like this!

Mew is the last of Pokémon Go Generation 1 to be released. The potential origin of all Pokémon, it’s fitting Mew’s introducing brings with it an all-new game mechanic as well: Field Research. In specific, Professor Willow is back with a Mythical Discovery quest that, if you complete all the goals, will get you to Mew, and get Mew to your PokéDex.

What is Field Research?

Field Research is a new game mechanic in Pokémon Go that rewards you for demonstrating core skills like making Great Shots, winning Gym battles or Raids, catching Pokémon, walking your Buddy, hatching Eggs, and more. Some are easy, like transferring 5 Pokémon. Others are hard, like catching Ditto or evolving a Gyarados.

From Pokémon Go:

A series of mysterious happenings is occurring all over the world, and Professor Willow is seeking Trainers to help him find out if this is connected to the Mythical Pokémon Mew. These research tasks will become available to Trainers around the world later this week!

There are two different types of research you can contribute to: Field Research and Special Research. Gather Field Research tasks by spinning nearby PokéStops, which will give you objectives that include discovering and catching certain Pokémon or engaging with battles, among other things. Special Research may be requested by Professor Willow himself, and will take you on a journey to make important discoveries!

Both types of research offer great rewards, including a variety of useful items and even encounters with certain Pokémon! You can complete as many research tasks as you want every day, leading to a full day of adventures. These tasks also have different levels of difficulty, so the more challenging a research task is, the greater the reward waiting for you.

You can earn one Stamp per day by completing at least one Field Research task, and when you obtain seven stamps, you can achieve a Research Breakthrough to receive even greater rewards! You may even have an encounter with a Legendary Pokémon!

Research tasks will provide interesting challenges that will help you get better at discovering, battling, and catching Pokémon! We’re excited to see your contributions to the exciting field of Pokémon research, and we can’t wait to hear about the adventures you have along the way! Let’s get moving!

You can find out more about how the team developed Field Research at Pokémon Go as well.

So, um, who’s Mew?

Mew is a Mythical Pokémon from Generation 1, sometimes suspected of being the origin of all Pokémon.

Here’s what the official Pokémon site has to say:

Mew is said to possess the genetic composition of all Pokémon. It is capable of making itself invisible at will, so it entirely avoids notice even if it approaches people.

And, from Bulbapedia:

Mew is a pink, bipedal Pokémon with mammalian features. Its snout is short and wide, and it has triangular ears and large, blue eyes. It has short arms with three-fingered paws, large hind legs and feet with oval markings on the soles, and a long, thin tail ending in an ovoid tip. Its fur is so fine and thin, it can only be seen under a microscope. Mew is said to have the DNA of every single Pokémon contained within its body, and as such is able to learn any attack.

As demonstrated by its behavior in the first and eighth Pokémon movies, it shows signs of intelligence, curiosity, playfulness, and even selflessness. Mew is incredibly adaptable, able to travel freely in the air or underwater. As seen in Pokémon Snap, it can create a green/yellow/pink orb of energy around itself for protection.

How do you catch Mew in Pokémon Go?

Thanks to the new Field Research mechanic in Pokémon Go, you can catch Mew if you complete Professor Wilow’s Mythical Discovery Quest.

What are the stages of Mythical Discovery and how do you finish them fast?

Image via The Silph Road

Mythical Discovery consists of eight sections with three tasks each.

Stage 1: Spin 5 PokéStops, catch 10 Pokémon, Transfer 5 Pokémon

This one is just the basics. Go to a place where you have 5 PokéStops handy, go for a walk, spin, catch, and transfer at least half of your catches.

Stage 2: Walk for 2 Buddy Candies, make 10 Great Throws, Hatch 3 Eggs

Switch your Buddy to one that only requires 1 KM per Candy. Magikarp is your best choice since you’ll need to evolve Gyarados later on — yeah… — and that’ll require 400 Karp (or Rare) Candies.

Then, if you’re not already walking Eggs, throw three 2 KM Eggs into Incubators — or Super Incubators, if you have them handy — and walk for both your Buddy Candies and your Egg hatches.

For Great Throws, your best bet is a Raid, specifically a big Tier 4 or Legendary Tier 5 Raid. Typically, they have large target circles and, if you don’t use Gold Razz, they’ll jump out a lot, giving you lots of chances to get your Great Throws in.

Stage 3: Reach Level 15, Battle 2x in a Gym, Battle 2x in Raids

If you’ve already reached Level 15, you’ll get auto-completed for that task. If you haven’t, crack some Lucky Eggs and do as many back-to-back Legendary Raids as you need to to level up. At 20,000 XP a pop, you’ll get there in no time.

For the Gym battles, just roll up on any Gym not controlled by your team and battle twice. Pick a big Dragonite or Tyranitar, or a Machamp if it’s filled with Blissey, Snorlax, Chansey, and Slaking. You don’t have to win, just battle. But Gyms are typically so weak right now it would be hard for you not to win two quick battles in a row.

Raids are the same. You don’t have to win, just battle. So, you can either do two quick Tier 1 or Tier 2 Raids or, if you don’t want to or can’t travel, you can do the same Raid twice. Just lose the first time, then win or lose the second.

Stage 4: Earn a Silver Kanto medal, evolve 20 Pokémon, walk for 5 Buddy Candies

If you’ve already got a silver Kanto medal, you’ll auto-complete this task as well. If you haven’t, you’ll need to make sure you have at least 50 different Generation 1 Pokémon to your PokéDex. The Silph Road Atlas can help you track them down.

You may get auto-completed for the evolutions as well — I was, for some strange reason — but if not, evolve away. If you lack the Pokémon and the Candy, start grinding. Pidgey, Caterpie, Weedle, Wurmple, and Whimsur are your best bets since they require only 12 Candy to evolve. With Pinap Berry, that’s only a couple catches each.

For the 5 Buddy Candies, just keep walking your 1 KM Buddy.

Stage 5: Catch Ditto, make 20 Great Throws, catch 10 Ghost Pokémon

Ditto is a Pokémon that disguises itself as other Pokémon. Currently, that includes:

  1. Pidgy
  2. Ratatta
  3. Zubat
  4. Ghastly
  5. Sentra
  6. Yanma
  7. Hoothoot
  8. Zigzagoon
  9. Taillow
  10. Whismur
  11. Gulpin

Unfortunately, there’s no way of knowing in advance which of those Pokémon might be a Ditto in disguise until after you catch it. So, you’ve got to grind: Catch every one of those Pokémon you can. Go to high-density spawn points, like parking lots at shopping centers and malls, and catch, catch, catch. It’s entirely random, so all you can do is keep catching until you get a Ditto.

Fortunately, that’ll give you a lot of opportunities to get your 20 Great Throws in! If by some chance you get Ditto before you get your throws, though, use the same strategy as before. Hit up the big Raids with the big Bosses and go for the easy Greats.

To get the Ghost-types, go out at night when they spawn more frequently, and look for Ghastly and Misdreavus nests near you in the Silph Road Atlas.

Stage 6: Reach Level 25, battle 10x Raids, evolve a Gyarados

If you’ve already reached Level 25, you’ll also get auto-completed for that task. If you haven’t, once again, crack some Lucky Eggs and do as many back-to-back Legendary Raids as you need to to level up. 20,000 XP a pop, what can I say?

For the 10x Raids, you can either get a group of friends together and get a Raid Train going, or you can find a couple Tier 4 or Tier 5 Raids you can’t possibly beat on your own and just lose them over and over again until you get to 10. It’s time-consuming but it’s not difficult.

Evolving a Gyarados, if you don’t have the Candy — now that’s difficult. Sadly, previous evolutions don’t count. You have to evovle a new one. So if you just evolved a Shiny, or were waiting to evolve a Shiny, tough luck. You’ll need to either track down enough Magikarp, Pinap Berry them, and get to 400 Candy, or Raid your heart out until you get enough Rare Candy to make up the difference, or both.

Yeah, this one can be a real wall.

Stage 7: Catch 50 Pokémon using a Berry, make 1 Excellent Curve Throw, earn a Gold Kanto medal

Catching the 50 Pokémon with a Berry is just grunt work. Go someplace with a ton of spawn points, like a parking lot at a shopping center or mall and start catching. Just Berry everything as you go. If you can find a place with PokéStops to refill your Berries as you go, so much the better. For weak Pokémon, use Nanab. They may as well be good for something. For the toughest of the tough, throw as many Golden Razz as you have to spare.

Getting at least 1 Excellent Curve Throw out of 50 catches shouldn’t be hard. Just make a point of going for it until you get it.

Again, if you’ve already have a Gold Kanto medal, you’ll auto-complete this task and be on your way. If you haven’t, you’ll need to make sure you have at least 100 different Generation 1 Pokémon to your PokéDex. And again, the Silph Road Atlas can help you track them down.

Stage 8: Catch Mew

If you’ve made it all the way here, enjoy! Mew is just a Poké Ball throw away!

Do you get rewards for completing each task and stage as well? What are they?

You do! You get XP awards for each task and item rewards for each stage. And that includes items you can typically only get from Raids!

  1. 500 XP x 3, 10x Great Balls, 1x Incubator, 3x Lures
  2. 1000 XP x 3, 20x Great Balls, 2000 Stardust, 3x Incense
  3. 1500 XP x3, 1x Fast TM, 1x Charge TM, 2x Star Pieces
  4. 2000 XP x 3, 20x Great Balls, 4000 Stardust, 3x Lures
  5. 2500 XP x3, 1x Raid Pass, 1x Lucky Egg, 15x Revives
  6. 3000 XP x 3, 5x. Rare Candy, 4000 Stardust, 3x Incense
  7. 3500 XP x3, 5x Ultra Balls, 8000 Stardust
  8. 4000 XP, 20x Mew Candy, 10,000 Stardust, 1x Super Incubator

You only get the rewards when you tap on them. So, if you want to crack a Lucky Egg or drop a Starpiece before you collect your XP or Stardust, that’s your opportunity to double — or 1.5x — dip.

What’s the best moveset for Mew?

Mew can learn Fast and Charge Moves of all types, making picking the best moveset equal parts math and feels. Mew won’t be topping any attacker or defenders charts, so go for what the numbers say is best or your personal favorites.

Since, given the variety, it will take a ton of TMs to get what you want anyway, and it won’t make a huge difference given Mew’s stats, you can simply keep what you get. If you really want to try your luck in the TM lottery, go for something that works well against whatever you typically fight the most, and have fun with it.

Niantic settles class action lawsuit following last year’s disastrous Pokémon Go Fest in Chicago

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Last summer, Niantic Labs celebrated the first year of Pokémon GO with an in-person event in Chicago, with others to follow in Europe. It didn’t go well: spotty cell signals and overwhelmed servers turned the event into a disaster, and two dozen attendees launched a class action lawsuit to try and recoup travel expenses. TechCrunch is reporting that Niantic has reached a settlement, to the tune of $ 1.5 million.

The company will end up paying $ 1,575,000 for attendees’ flights, hotel rooms, car rentals, parking fees, milage, and tolls. The company will put up a website by May 25th for individuals affected by the problems, and it will notify users via e-mail.

To qualify for the settlement, users have to have checked into the festival in…

Can a new story help rejuvenate Pokémon GO?

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Pokémon GO

It has been almost two years since Niantic launched Pokémon GO onto the world. A mobile game that uses augmented reality (AR) to put the ridiculously famous pocket monsters into our world blew up right out of the gate, becoming a global phenomenon in the process. For months after its launch you didn’t have to look far to see pictures of hundreds, and sometimes thousands, of players out there in the real world trying to collect their next find.

The furor has died down, as everyone expected it would eventually. Depending on where you stand, and what you think of the game, you might assume it died down pretty quickly, or maybe it went on a lot longer than you thought it would. Either way, while a lot of the attention has died down for the game, it’s still a popular title.

Even now, as the weather gets nicer, I see people out and about that are playing it. I still play the game with my kids. They don’t ask as often as they used to, but it’s still something that if we find ourselves in a park or something they want to try out, just to see what they can find.

Now, here we are just a few months out from the two year anniversary of the title and Niantic has just announced one of the game’s biggest updates ever.

The company is rolling out daily tasks, as well as more in-depth and story-driven research quests. Niantic, like many video game developers out there, wants to reward players for coming back to play the game on a daily basis. And, perhaps even more importantly, they are bringing in a story to the mix, too.

The developer hasn’t been a stranger to new content in general, bringing in new pocket monsters on a semi-regular basis. But this update is definitely noteworthy. And it got me wondering: is it enough to bring back the players that have left the title? A lot of mobile games aren’t really known for their story content, and there’s no word just yet on how much of a story there is in the upcoming update, but maybe some is better than none?

Then again, the idea of just going out into the world and collecting Pokémon, while also battling other players at gyms, seemed to be more than enough at launch and up until this point. So maybe a new story element won’t do anything to stir up attention for the game. One has to hope it’s at least enough to keep the current players around a bit longer.

What do you think? Is a story mode what Pokémon GO needs as it nears its second anniversary? Let me know!

Pokémon Go Easter Eggstravaganza 2018 Event Guide

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Spring has sprung for Pokémon Go and, if you act fast, you can get more candy from hatches and double dust all week!

Pokémon Go doesn’t have an Easter Event. Instead, it has an Eggstravaganza. And with it, you have the chance to hatch more Pokémon — including new Shiny Baby Pokémon — for more candy, and get double Stardust as well.

What is this Pokémon Go Easter / Spring Event of which you speak?

From Pokemon Go:

It’s time to get cracking on a special Egg event! The Pokémon GO Eggstravaganza is coming back on March 22 at 1:00 p.m. PDT, and this time you’ll have even more chances to hatch certain Pokémon!

This year, an even greater variety of Pokémon will be found in 2 km Eggs, and only those Eggs will be available from PokéStops throughout the event! This means that Pokémon that normally hatch from 5 km or 10 km Eggs, such as Wynaut or Ralts, will be found in 2 km Eggs until the event ends on April 2 at 1:00 p.m. PDT. There will also be an increased hatch rate of certain Pokémon, such as Pichu and Togepi.

Your eggs-traordinary efforts will bring rewards! Every Egg hatched during the event will also include bonus Candy to help you power up your newly hatched Pokémon. Additionally, double Stardust is available throughout the event.

The in-game shop also has special boxes to help you get the most out of hatching your Eggs, which include Super Incubators and Star Pieces. So lace up your shoes and prepare for this egg-citing event!

When does the Pokémon Go Easter / Spring Event start and end exactly?

Here are the official times:

  • Start: March 22, 2018 at 1 p.m. PDT / 4 p.m. EDT
  • End: April 2, 2018 at 1 p.m. PDT / 4 p.m. EDT

So, a week of springtime fun.

How does ‘double Stardust’ break down?

Think of it like having a Star Piece running, but even better — 200% instead of 150%. Here’s what that looks like:

  • 40 Stardust per Berry fed to a friendly Pokémon on a Gym.
  • 200 Stardust per base-level Pokémon caught in the wild.
  • 600 Stardust per base-level Pokémon caught in the wild.
  • 1000 Stardust per base-level Pokémon caught in the wild.
  • 1000 Stardust per Raid Boss beaten.
  • 1200 Stardust for each Daily Catch Bonus.
  • 6000 Stardust for the 7-day Weekly Catch Bonus.
  • 800-1600 Stardust per KM Egg hatched.
  • 1600-3200 Stardust per 5 KM Egg hatched.
  • 3200-6400 Stardust per 10 KM Egg hatched.

Can you add a Star Piece as well for triple Stardust?

You can! And you’ll get 3x on your Stardust for the 30 min. duration of the Star Piece! That works out to:

  • 60 Stardust per Berry fed to a friendly Pokémon on a Gym.
  • 300 Stardust per base-level Pokémon caught in the wild.
  • 900 Stardust per base-level Pokémon caught in the wild.
  • 1000 Stardust per base-level Pokémon caught in the wild.
  • 1500 Stardust per Raid Boss beaten.
  • 1800 Stardust for each Daily Catch Bonus.
  • 9000 Stardust for the 7-day Weekly Catch Bonus.
  • 1200-2400 Stardust per KM Egg hatched.
  • 2400-4800 Stardust per 5 KM Egg hatched.
  • 4800-9600 Stardust per 10 KM Egg hatched.

What about the extra candy for egg hatches?

It looks like it might be doubled. If that’s the case, we’re looking at:

  • 10 to 30 Candies per 2 KM Egg hatched.
  • 20 to 42 Candies per 5 KM Egg hatched.
  • 32 to 64 Candies per 10 KM Egg hatched.

Is there also double candy for transfers or catches or anything else?

No, sadly. Only for egg hatches this time.

So, basically, the best time to power up Pokémon?

Absolutely, if you have Pokémon worth powering up!

What does a ‘greater variety of Pokémon can now be found in 2 km Eggs’ mean?

It means some Pokémon that previously hatched from 10 KM or 5 KM eggs now hatch from 2 KM egg.

So, you basically only have to walk 2 KM to hatch a Pokémon you’d normally have to walk 5 KM or even 10 KM to hatch.

Is it true – Shiny Pokémon Babies??

It’s true! You can now hatch Shiny Pokémon Babies from 2 KM eggs. They’re still incredibly rare, though. So luck over time is your only formula for success.

Does this affect old Pokémon Go Eggs you already have or only new ones you get during the event?

You’ll get double candy for hatching any Pokémon Egg you have, old or new. You’ll only get the “greater variety” or shiny babies in new eggs, though. Everything about a Pokémon Go Egg, including what’s inside it, is determined the moment you get it.
