Comparing the Alola Maps

Comparing the Alola Maps

A comparison between the Alola map from Pokémon Sun and Moon with the new Alola map from Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. Some beaches have expanded. Construction spots on the islands seem to have all the construction complete with new buildings there. While the E4 is not new, we see it on the new map since it wasn't finished at the start of our adventure. The Wormhole is the obvious feature on the new map, but the Pokémon swimming away from Ula'ula Island is interesting.

Downgrade Your Pokémon GO App to get Trainer Club Access Again!

Did you upgrade to v1.0.1 from the App Store and got locked out of Pokémon GO? Do you use a Pokémon Trainer Club account? I didn't have an older version of Pokémon GO on any of my devices.

LA Pokémon Boutique - Fan Pictures!

LA Pokémon Boutique - Fan Pictures!

It was a small store, but it had a good amount of Pokémon merch. They had plushes, shirts & dresses, as well as wallets, suspenders and the like.

They were a bit pricey, but we figured they were special editions so why not splurge?
