  • 'Pokemon Go' to Add New Shiny Pokemon to Commemorate Launch of 'Ingress Prime'

Niantic is realistic about Ingress Prime's audience when compared to the Pokmon phenomenon, but as Ingress is Niantic's own intellectual property, it is able to experiment within the game and around it more freely - and then apply learnings to its other titles. Niantic plans to host 12 "large-scale" Primary Anomaly events around the world, beginning with one in select cities later this month, on November 17.To commemorate the launch of Ingress Prime, Pokemon Go players have a chance to catch two special Pokemon right now.

Shiny Ponytas and Cubones are now spawning in the wild at a slightly higher rate than usual and will likely not appear in eggs. It was received positively and garnered quite the player base, though by the time Pokemon Go came out in 2016, Ingress' player numbers had plummeted drastically. Along with a much needed tutorial system for new players. It certainly feels like this could be added to Pokmon Go properly in the near future.

You can grab a copy of Ingress Prime on Google Play or the App Store.

Thought the offer was $100 million short, there were no hard feelings between Harper and the team. The San Francisco Giants are not expected to be interested now that the price tag is visible.

Upon completing the training, players must choose a side between The Enlightened and The Resistance, two factions battling for control of these landmarks and the fate of the world.

The team at Niantic is now hoping some of the features in the newer version of Ingress can be implemented into GO eventually.

"Ingress Prime is built on Niantic's Real World Platform and serves as a key driver for innovation around gameplay and technologies for all Niantic products", said John Hanke, founder and CEO of Niantic. It's now called Ingress Prime, and acts as a reset to the Ingress universe. It was a hit for a small niche market when it launched in 2012, a market that may have felt a bit abandoned when Niantic turned its eyes on Pokemon GO. It's the flawless time to get back into the game if you've fallen out of it.
