After much anticipation, Pokemon Go has finally delivered us with its fully realized version of PvP, the Go Battle League. The League is an online matchmaking system with a fully integrated ranking and elo system. Designed basically the same as most other online competitive gaming systems, the Go Battle League of course has the single goal of trainers competing to be the very best, like no one ever was.

December paved the way for yet another new take on the Silph Arena themed cups, bringing us another original set of rules and restrictions. The Timeless Cup intended to bring us back to the main series games by choosing your starter Pokemon and building your team around that. In this cup you could only choose pokemon from the Kanto, Johto, Hoenn and Sinnoh regions and you had to include one, and only one, starter in your lineup. Also, targeted bans were placed on Fighting-, Normal-, Fairy-, Flying-, Steel- and Psychic-type Pokemon, as well as legandaries, mythicals, Alolan and Galarian forms, Umbreon and Sableye. Again, this was to try and encourage as much variability within teams as possible and not have certain Pokemon dominate the meta. While the idea was right, it kinda failed.

The month of November gave us rise to a new type of themed cup from Silph Arena. The Ferocious Cup was the first cup to not be restricted to a handful of typing’s as the theme, but instead to a whitelist of 130 species, or as they like to say, “land-based beast pokemon inspired by the fearsome beasts that rule the land”. While the goal of this cup was to provide an interesting and diverse meta, it still ended up revolving around a single Pokemon (one that I didn’t have) and that was Last Resort Umbreon.

With Go Battle League on its way and my new found love of Pokemon Go with the emergence of the Silph Arena, it is time to start cataloging my teams, battles and experiences. To this end, coupled with my other love of making the world come more alive by bringing the Pokemon Go AR experience into my photography, I will endeavor to write about this here on my extremely sporadic website!

With my current success with live streaming Pokemon Go, it is time to build on that by also making and uploading short videos showing my exploits in Seoul. From raids to PvP tournaments, I will try to cover these much more regularly and it gives me a way to keep releasing content! So here is the first video. Enjoy!
It keeps on being awhile between updates, I really must strive to do better with my own website.
I have done well with my Facebook and I’m making way with my streaming but it’s still not consistent and that’s something I really need to improve. But in saying that, it’s not easy when things keep changing and get more hectic! I have been recording a lot more stuff and have a few videos that I need to edit and upload so I have content, just need to sort it out and start posting it up!
I managed to record my next video when I was in Busan, I will try and do more on the road videos like this over the summer since I should be out and about quite a bit and the change of scenery is always nice! My next video will explain a bit more about the things I am working on at the moment but for now, enjoy checking Gwangali!
