Pokémon Trading Card Game players in Australia and New Zealand should prepare themselves as Play! Pokémon events will be returning on March 6, 2021. You’ll once again be able to visit stores hosting Play! Pokémon events to participate in Pokémon League and Prerelease tournaments against other players. For questions or concerns regarding events at participating stores, please see the Play! Pokémon COVID-19 requirements.

The brand-new Event Locator is now available to help players discover events. Currently, the Event Locator will only show events for Australia and New Zealand.

In-person events in other areas remain suspended, but conditions will be consistently reviewed for future re-openings. In the meantime, Players Cup, Team Challenge, and League at Home continue to be available to eligible players in all participating countries.

In more Play! Pokémon news, the new Pokémon Event Manager (PEM) has launched and will help Professors and Tournament Organizers create and track Play! Pokémon events. The initial version of the new PEM is available only in English. Event organizers in countries outside Australia and New Zealand can continue to test PEM, but please note that Team Challenge tournaments will continue to run with Tournament Operations Manager (TOM) software.

Continue to visit the Play! Pokémon Events website for the latest updates.


As with all new generations of games, X & Y bring a plethora of Pokémon to the fold.

How do you get the Pokémon Type Medals?

Pokémon Go Type Medals are similar to the achievement medals, but focused on specific Pokémon types. Unlike the Achievement Medals, though, the type medals do come with a pretty significant reward. Each Medal increases your chances of catching a Pokémon of that type by 10% (in cases when a Pokémon has two types, the bonus is the average of both types.)

Since you get the bonus without having to do anything special, like curve your shot, and without having to expend any additional resources, like a Razz Berry or Ultra Ball, the bonus is not only effortless once you get it, but essentially free and infinite. That’s a great reason to max out your type medals.

How do you earn medals?

To get a type medal, you need to hatch, catch, or evolve Pokémon of that type. Doing any one of those things gets you a point towards the medal and Pokémon with two types will award you with a point in both types.

  • Bronze: Catch 10 Pokémon
  • Silver: Catch 50 Pokémon
  • Gold: Catch 200 Pokémon
  • Platinum: Catch 2,500 Pokémon

While you’ll naturally come across Pokémon of every type in regular gameplay, one of the best ways to complete type medals fast is to focus on events in which certain Pokémon are boosted (especially Community Days) and to go to your local parks where specific Pokémon nests can be found. If you connect with other local trainers on social media, some groups even share nest locations so you can pick out the right park each week to find the type you’re trying to complete.

What about Pokémon that evolve into different types?

A few Pokémon change types as they evolve. For example, Shelldor and Seel are water types, but their evolutions, Cloyster and Dewgong are Water and Ice types. That means, if you catch or hatch the base Pokémon, you will get 1 point for your Water Medal but, when you evolve them, you’ll get a second Water point and an Ice point.

How do you get the Schoolkid Medal for Normal type Pokémon?

There are so many normal type Pokémon and so many common Pokémon like Pidgey and Rattata are normal types. Because mass evolving Pidgey is a staple of leveling up, this is one of the easiest medals to get.

Some common Pokémon you can Hatch, Catch, or Evolve to earn this Medal include:

  • Igglybuff
  • Azurill
  • Pidgey
  • Rattata
  • Farfetch’d
  • Kangaskhan
  • Tauros
  • Spearow
  • Meowth
  • Doduo
  • Lickitung
  • Chansey
  • Eevee
  • Snorlax
  • Teddiursa
  • Stantler
  • Miltank
  • Zigzagoon
  • Tailow
  • Slakoth
  • Whismur
  • Skitty
  • Swablu
  • Pidgeotto
  • Pidgeot
  • Raticate
  • Fearow
  • Jigglypuff
  • Wigglytuff
  • Persian
  • Dodrio
  • Furret
  • Ursaring
  • Blissey
  • Linoone
  • Swellow
  • Vigoroth
  • Slaking
  • Loudred
  • Exploud
  • Delcatty

Note: Farfetch’d, Kangaskhan, and Taurus are Regional Exclusives.

How do you get the Bird Keeper Medal for Flying type Pokémon?

Like Normal type Pokémon, Flying types abound, including the very common Pidgey, Spearow, and Zubat. Since mass evolving Pidgey to Pidgeotto is a…

Like most games, Pokémon GO runs various special events and in these events, many of the mechanics and systems alter sightly in order to provide a different themed experience. These range from giving special Pokémon, to extra bonuses and even special Raid Bosses. This section sets out all the major Pokémon GO events unrelated to real life events as well as their bonuses and special features.

The graphics are pretty well, the Pokémon are cute and lovely however I felt some battle animations were lacking. The game suffered from lag and slow down in some areas, especially in the wild area. The wild area was extremely fun, however. It’s easy to get distracted and lost for hours exploring and doing max raid battles. Dynamax didn’t feel overly gimmicky as it was mainly reserved for raids and gym battles. Speaking of gym battles the music was arguably the best part of the game. The story felt lacking. It’s suddenly just thrust at you near the end of the game and there’s no real explanation as to why the events are happening, the final battle is less of a struggle and more of letting the two cover legendaries do all the work. As for the rest of the game, it’s slightly challenging at the start but once you have access to the wild area it’s extremely easy to become over leveled and I spent the entire game from that point on 20 to 30 levels ahead of the trainers on the routes and gym leaders. The tournament at the end was a nice change, and some of the characters actually did feel a little more developed than the last few games. There’s a small bit of post game story but once that’s over the game begins to feel dull and repetitive. Not having the entire Pokédex did not effect the main game however it feels like the post game is lacking and missing something that adding a few more pokémon into the wild to track down could very well fix. Online interaction feels a little bare bones. There is no GTS, and no way to communicate to a person you may be trading with what pokémon you are offering or looking for, making getting specific version exclusives pokémon difficult. Over all, it was a fun experience but the game feels rushed, unpolished, and as if something more was intended but never fully realized.… Expand

Post Malone returned to the Grammys stage Sunday to give a performance of “Hollywood’s Bleeding” that gave off serious seance vibes. 

Posty, who was nominated for several awards throughout the night, gave the performance of a true scene kid.

He wore a floor-length leather trenchcoat that looked straight out of Ozzy Osbourne‘s closet. He was also surrounded by hooded figures holding candles in the dark. And there was a smoke machine, so it truly looked like a scene out of a horror movie.

Fans on Twitter could not get enough of Posty channeling his inner goth in the performance.


You can check out a video of Post Malone’s Grammys entrance and performance below.

The rapper last performed at the Grammys in 2019, when he joined the Red Hot Chili Peppers for a mashup of his songs “Stay” and “Rockstar,” before transitioning to his collab with the Chili Peppers. Malone played guitar with the band for “Dark Necessities” and sang backing vocals.

Post Malone is also making history with his Grammy nominations this year, as he’s up for Album of the Year for his full-length Hollywood’s Bleeding, along with Record of the Year and Song of the Year for “Circles.” 

It’s the third year in the row he’s been nominated for Record Of The Year after “Rockstar” feat. 21 Savage in 2019 and “Sunflower” feat. Swae Lee in 2020. Posty is the first artist to be nominated for Record of the Year three years in a row since 1988 when Steve Winwood accomplished the same record. However, he did not win this year, as H.E.R.‘s “I Can’t Breathe” took home the award. 

The rapper also was nominated for Album of the Year in 2019 for Beerbongs & Bentleys, but lost to Kacey Musgraves‘ Golden Hour.
