The Pokémon Go Team has announced that the game is getting 80 new Pokémon and features shortly. Starting later this week, gamers will have the opportunity to catch more than 80 Pokémon originally discovered in the Johto region in the Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver video games.
The developers have also implemented some new features to enhance the overall Pokémon GO experience. These new features include:
Additional Pokémon: More than 80 Pokémon that were originally discovered in the Johto region in the Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver video games, as well as Pokémon with gender-specific variations, will start rolling out in Pokémon GO.
New Evolutions: There are now more opportunities to evolve the Pokémon in Pokémon GO than ever before. Some Pokémon originally discovered in the Kanto region will soon be able to evolve—into Pokémon that inhabit the Johto region. Gamers need to be on the lookout for new Evolution items at PokéStops, which gamers will need in order to evolve some Pokémon.
New Encounter Gameplay: When gamers encounter Pokémon in the wild, don’t be surprised if they react in new ways when you try to catch them. Gamers will also notice the addition of new item carousels that allow you to select Berries and Poké Balls directly from the encounter screen.
New Berries: Pokémon enjoy eating Berries, and gamers will have the opportunity to get two new Berries by spinning the Photo Disc at PokéStops—Nanab Berries and Pinap Berries! Giving a Pokémon a Nanab Berry will slow its movements, making it easier to catch. The Pinap Berry doubles the amount of Candy gamers will receive if their next catch attempt succeeds.
New Avatars and an Expanded Wardrobe: Now gamers will be able to give their avatar a complete upgrade. You can customise your look with a whole new selection of hats, shirts, pants, and other items.

PUBG MOBILE Launches Version 2.0 Update
PUBG MOBILE has officially released its new Version 2.0 Update, packed with new additions to PUBG MOBILE’s iconic maps, alongside new content from acclaimed anime EVANGELION and more. Beginning on May 11th, Livik gets an explosive overhaul with an upgraded environmental redesign in its urban areas to showcase innovative new combat strategies. A new vehicle – the agile four-seater Utility Task Vehicle – has also been added to Livik and Aftermath, allowing players to quickly move back and forth across the map’s diverse landscape.
At the beginning of the match, a golden resource-rich area will spawn in a random urban area, allowing players to grab as many supplies as they can! Not to mention a great assemblage of mini-games and items, such as Random Crates, which can be tracked down with Treasure Maps, Blomster’s in-game Soccer Challenge, and a quick means of escape with the map’s new Zipline.
Airdrops come once a match in a designated area, while Recall Towers are dotted across Livik for players to revive their lost teammates. Lying beneath it all is Livik’s volcano, which may erupt at any given moment – hide from its wrath by dodging its explosions and sheltering in buildings! All this content and more lands in Livik today.
On May 19th, a new season comes to PUBG MOBILE! A new batch of Legendary rewards is available for Cycle 2 Season 6, including themed Glasses, Parachute, Mask, and much more. The tier system has also been adjusted, as more sub-tiers have been added within the Gold, Bronze, and Silver tiers.
With the new Royale Pass Month themes – Hidden Hunters for Month 11 – players can work their way up to rank 50 to pick between two rewards. They can also track the progress of their pass missions in matches through the mini-map and, with the Favorites Crate, select their preferred reward from any past season. A free Royale Pass Voucher will become available for next month’s Royale Pass – themed Toy World – and the chance to participate in the server-wide Golden Chicken event and bonus Royale Pass Point event.
PUBG MOBILE has today announced an upcoming partnership with the acclaimed anime title EVANGELION to bring the series’ fearsome Angels to PUBG MOBILE’s iconic maps in a special event coming soon. Stay tuned for more information! Other new additions to the PUBG MOBILE shop include new Mythic outfits from the Crystal Power Squad, including the Interstellar Chimera Set, Floret Fairy Set, Sacred Eminence Set, and Styx Sovereign Set, as well as a brand new character, Emilia the Materials Scientist, who can provide players with new equipment.
Also new to PUBG MOBILE are Wingman Finishes, obtainable through the Lucky Spin from May 17th to May 24th. Wingmen can accompany players through their game, flying around Spawn Island during the match, alongside the plane during the jump phase, and there to welcome players back to the lobby afterward.
A number of other improvements have been made to PUBG MOBILE, including visual improvements, UI upgrades, and much more. Security, in particular, has doubled down, with the intuitive new Eagle System and Fog of War Anti-Cheat System included to combat cheaters further.
Three Most Dangerous Types of Android Malware
Written by Lukas Stefanko, Malware Researcher at ESET
These days, the device in your pocket can do far more than call or send text messages. Your smartphone stores almost every aspect of your life, from memories, captured as photos to personal notes and schedules, log-in details, and various other kinds of sensitive data.
Android-powered devices command more than 70 percent of the mobile operating system market. Add to that the open nature of the Android ecosystem and it’s clearer why these devices bear the brunt of malicious attacks on mobile devices and remain a lucrative target for attackers.
Google has, of course, introduced a number of privacy- and security-enhancing features for Android devices. Just a few days ago, the company announced that it had stopped 1.2 million policy-violating apps from reaching Google Play last year, among other measures aimed at cracking down on malicious apps.
However, this is not to say you should let your guard down when it comes to all sorts of dangers that lurk especially in third-party app stores.
Malware comes in various forms and works in various vicious ways. Watch the video to learn more about some of the most dangerous types of malware affecting Android devices, including:
- Malicious software that can hold your device and data hostage, possibly “on behalf of the FBI”
- Malware that steals login credentials and can in some cases bypass two-factor authentication
- Android nasties that give hackers control over your entire device
