Pokemon Go has more than proven itself to be a game that appeals to the masses -- regardless of their age. The need to “catch ‘em all’ has certainly pushed Nintendo’s stock far higher than it was in the early days of Pokemon Go, and is now a steady revenue stream for Nintendo and the game’s developer, Niantic. When you have got a good thing going on, what do you do? Find new ways to monetize the experience, of course, while hoping that the existing customer base continues to expand further. Niantic’s Pokemon Go Gen 2 is set to be released in a couple of months’ time -- although there is also the very real possibility of March 2017 as the release date, so do expect to see and of course, catch a bunch of new Pokemon.
In Pokemon Go Gen 2, you can be sure that your Pokemon vocabulary will expand even further for the non-seasoned veterans, as Porygon leds the line. There are also whispers of new evolutions which will be made available to the masses from Pokemon Go Informer, including Bellosom, Politoed, Slowking, Steelix, Crobat, Tyrogue, Scizor, Umbreon, Hitmontop, Blissey”, Kingdra and Espeon, among others.
These are certainly zany names when you think about it, and surely there are many different Pokemon combinations that come into mind which result in such evolution names. To ensure that your existing stable of Pokemon will evolve to these new types, you would need candy. Plenty of candy. And as we all know, such candies can be rather difficult to come by.
One of the easiest (and cheapest, of course) methods to pick up candies in Pokemon Go would be to walk. A whole lot of walking, actually. After all, that is how the game was designed, and when played fairly, basically the person who walks the most, would statistically speaking, end up with the most amount of candy.
With Pokemon Go candy, that is one of the main prerequisites in making all of the evolutions possible in Pokemon Gen 2, and Niantic intends to help gamers with the Buddy System. The Buddy System will help you obtain candy through walking, although gamers are keeping their fingers crossed that the candy returns on Pokemon Go Gen 2 will be improve -- meaning more candy with less walking.
Should Pokemon Go Gen 2 be released in March next year at the earliest, this would mean you have at least half a year more for you to build on your candy collection. After all, a whole lot of walking would also do you a world of good as you burn those calories while having fun. Just watch out for traffic and ensure that you follow all road rules as a pedestrian, and you should be all right.
For the moment, it would be best to make use of your candies wisely, and perform evolutions only on those creatures that really matter, rather than frivolously wasting candy on the likes of Pidgey, Squirtle and Rattata. Now that is common sense for sure, but then again, common sense ain't so common these days.
