Private raid parties were created so you could battle raid bosses with your friends and prevent your party from being filled with spoofers. Though, that all seems to have been changed, now that spoofers found a way to get into your party!
After figuring out how the Pokemon code matrix worked, it becomes clear on how these lazy trainers were able to join in on your parties without being handed the code. Here is a picture of how the Pokemon are displaced.
After creating a private lobby, you are given a code that consists of 3 Pokemon shown above. It’s a random code and is given to the trainers who started the party and is shared with the rest of the team. However, this system is actually flawed.
Once a new private lobby is created. the code uses the same first 2 Pokemon as the one made before. Only the 3rd code Pokemon is the next one in line. meaning if your party code is 112. The next one will be 113. A spoofer can easily enter your lobby, knowing this simple flaw. All they have to do is enter 112 when joining a private party.
Has this happened to you or are you worried about it happening to you and your friends? Don’t worry too much about it. Once Niantic figured out a more randomized way to create codes this shouldn’t be a problem anymore.
Though, there is an easy way around it. Surely, there will be more than one trainer you wish to join you. If a few trainers created lobbies that had a few people in each. The spoofer won’t know which party you will really be using to battle with. After about 30 seconds are left on the timer. Pick the lobby without the spoofer(s), give everyone the code, and battle without unwanted trainers.
Pokemon GO Introduce Daily Bonuses To Pokestops
Pokemon Go was released a year and a half ago! At this point in the games life cycle, you would think one of the most important parts of the game would be working properly and have all the tweaks in needs finalized. Though, that isn’t the case. However, it does appear Niantic is changing them daily, or even weekly.
The Pokestops are Pokemon Go’s major features that are used in order to collect items which allows you to “progress” further into the game. When the game was first released. Trainers quickly realized the importance of these stops and request for more if their towns didn’t have plenty.
The loot table for these photospins did have a lot of items until generation 2 came out. Once that happened we saw new barries along with 5 evolution items used to evolve certain Pokemon in the game. Pokestops have been seen to favor items. Sometimes it would last for a day, sometimes it would last longer.
For all we know, Niantic is testing something pretty fun and interesting. Anyone who has played Trove or other games that hold these daily bonuses would know. In Trove, there are set days for certain bonuses. For example every Tuesday, there is a bonus for gathering materials.
This is a feature Niantic could add for Pokestops. Each day could be an increased bonus for certain items which we will go over shortly. Some may not like this, however, knowing that you have a good chance of collecting items you need would be motivating to get out and hit the stops. Continue Reading…
