The world's first "Pokémon Master" was selected from among thousands of candidates applying to Funzing.com earlier this month.

Ivy Lim, a 22 year-old from Singapore, who is a Trainer Level 23, and has caught only 121 characters so far, will be paid $1,000 a month for at least three months to catch Pokémon, train others, hold events like lure parties, teach secrets, and share her experiences.

Maybe she can help me figure out how to evolve my Pidgeys faster?



Check her out below:



...and go here if you want to up your own game in the meantime.

A clever ad campaign has caught Londoners attention by threatening to deport Pokémon Go! characters as a ploy for getting attention for a petition demanding that EU Citizens be allowed to stay in the UK with the same rights as pre-BREXIT had allowed them. The signs were spotted all over London Monday, from the London Eye to Tube Stations:




The #POKEMONGOHOME Campaign has garnered a ton of attention...









So even though we love and adore THESE guys...





...Go Sign The Petition to guarantee EU Nationals a right to remain in the UK, because people are definitely better than freakin' Pidgeys.

Gary Dear, owner of Mad Hatter's Ice Cream in Anacortes found himself situated in the middle of a maddening Pokémon GO mecca. Eager players have flocked from miles and miles away to his shop, where there are three Poké Stops located nearby---many end up getting ice cream after their journeying around.

"Never in my wildest dreams did I ever expected it to end up like this," said Dear. "I've never seen anything take off like this."

Dear even estimates that his store's sales have doubled, if not tripled, on certain nights when the Poké Madness runs wild.

A fire department hailing out of Needville, Texas was recently forced to remove their status as a PokéStop due to public safety concerns; and the events that ensued after (slashing of tires) are being blamed on Pokémon GO players. What do you guys think---this a fair and warranted claim by the fire department?

As noted by Archangelus on Reddit, Vaporeon's go-to move Water Gun has been nerfed from from its previous power of 10, to 6. See in the screenshot below, provided by Alex Zandra:



Thing that's kind of awkward though is that at the same time, Vaporeon's Hydro Pump was deffinitely buffed -- 50% increase.

Anyone out there wanna be the best like no one ever was - but in the sheets?...Well these Pokémon-inspired dildos might be just what you're looking for.

Specifically, 'Pokémoan' is a creation from Geeky Sex Toys, a workshop of self-proclaimed 'cheeky nerds', currently based out of Brisbane, Australia. Brace yourself folks, cause some of the following images aren't exactly 'office-friendly'!

What do you guys think? The gym leaders were revealed yesterday at San Diego Comic-Con, when hundreds of players also gathered with high hopes that a legendary might be unleashed...no such luck, unfortunately. Some other details covered:

  • There are easter eggs that nobody's discovered yet
  • They’re planning ways to customize Pokestops
  • Pokemon Centers are coming
  • There will be more functionality added to gyms, though the specifics aren’t clear
  • Niantic says the game is at about 10% of what they want it to be
  • They’re still discussing breeding, but nothing concrete in the works yet
  • The legendary birds are tied to teams in some way, as the original designs implied
  • Yep, they know about the three-step glitch.
  • It sounds like we can’t expect legendaries until after the game has been released on all regions, which makes sense
