In today’s news roundup we got Hisuan Zorua and Zoroark artwork reveal, increased Wayspot contribution limit goes live and Niantic hints exclusive sponsored EE raids.
Plus, we got Niantic announcing Pikmin Bloom, a brand new game rolling out today (Australia and Singapore, more countries soon).
Hisuan Zorua and Zoroark revealed
Trainers, two new Pokémon are coming with Pokémon Legends Arceus: Hisuan Zorua and Zoroark! Both have the newly invented Normal / Ghost typing, which makes them quite unique.
We are keeping a track of newly released Hisuan Pokémon forms in expectation of a Legends Arceus x Pokémon GO event. Every main series game was featured in GO to date, and we expect Legends Arceus to be featured as well.
A video trailer has been released as well:
Increased PokéStop submission limit
Trainers can now submit up to 40 PokéStop nominations per day. Reddit user TheRealHankWolfman spotted this change and shared the updated numbers. For those looking forward to submitting new PokéStops, be sure to check the following resources before submitting:
