Pokemon GO - Raid Battles now open to Level 25 players

Random Time! - Japanese magazine offering Pokemon-themed marriage licenses

You think you've seen every type of Pokemon merch there is, and then Japanese wedding magazine Zexy comes along and reinvents the wheel. Yes, these are Pokemon legal documents for getting married. I can honestly say I've seen much weirder options for marriage certificates! I think this one is actually kind of cute!

Pokemon GO cheaters find workaround for slashed Pokemon, Niantic quickly squashes it

As we reported already, Pokemon GO cheaters were finding that their ill-gotten Pokemon were marked with red slashes. That way everyone would know they weren't legitimate captures. Not surprisingly, cheaters found a quick workaround. The slash would disappear if you evolved those Pokemon.

As soon as that evidence popped up online, Niantic was quick to fix the issue. What was the solution? Those with slashed Pokemon can't evolve them!
