1 PokeCoin bundles are returning to Pokemon Go throughout February 2021, with a different bundle available every week. Here’s what you’ll find inside each one.

There’s plenty for Pokemon Go players to look forward to in February: As well as raid battles featuring the likes of Legendary beasts Raikou and Suicune, there’s a special Kanto celebration event to honor the 25th anniversary of the franchise.

Niantic have also announced that 1 PokeCoin bundles will be returning, giving trainers the chance to stock up on some much-needed items like PokeBalls, Incense, and Remote Raid Passes for a grand total of — yes, you guessed it — just 1 PokeCoin.

It’s a welcome return for the bundles, especially ahead of the Pokemon Go Tour: Kanto event when trainers will want to catch as many Gen 1 creatures like Squirtle, Charmander, and Bulbasaur as possible.

There will be a total of four 1 PokeCoin bundles going live through February. The first 1 PokeCoin bundle will go live on February 1, 2021, and the final 1 PokeCoin bundle will go live on February 22, 2021.

Each bundle will be available to purchase from the in-game Shop for one week and will disappear when the next arrives, so grab them as soon as you can.

The 1 PokeCoin Bundles appearing throughout February 2021 in Pokemon Go are as follows:

  • February 1, 2021: 20 PokeBalls, a Remote Raid Pass, and a Rocket Radar
  • February 8, 2021: 8 Incense, 16 Razz Berries, and 10 Pinap Berries.
  • February 15, 2021: 20 PokeBalls, 10 Great Balls, and 5 Ultra Balls.
  • February 22, 2021: 20 PokeBalls, a Remote Raid Pass, and 5 Incense.

If you’re running low on PokeCoins, or you’re not sure how to get them in the first place, there are two ways to do it. You can earn six PokeCoins per hour defending a Gym, or you can purchase them with real money.

Trainers will do well to stock up on PokeBalls, Berries, and Incense through this month, as the upcoming Pokemon Go Tour: Kanto event (which begins February 20, 2021) will ask them to collect all 150 original Pokemon to earn rewards.

That’s not all, though, as all 150 Pokemon will be available in Shiny Form, and there will be an event-exclusive Special Research story that will lead to an encounter with Shiny Mew for the first time ever in Pokemon Go.

Valorant world records: Longest matches, most kills, popular weapons, more

Bragging rights are all too important in Valorant but who actually stands atop the pack and truly leads on the global standings? From the longest match in Valorant history to the players with the most kills, here are the current world records for Riot’s tactical FPS.

Valorant has been out for over six months at the time of writing. From new maps to additional Agents and a ton of balancing updates, we’ve already been through a great deal as the competitive scene finds its footing.

Elite players have been able to climb through the ranks to Radiant and even cement their spot among the top 100 each month. Meanwhile, the world’s very best teams have been battling it out in a number of official and community-driven tournaments.

Here’s a list of the most impressive world records for Valorant. We’ll be keeping this updated as new players climb the rankings and new trends emerge.

Longest match in Valorant history

While competitive play started out with a simple ‘sudden death’ overtime rule, a new system requires players to win by two rounds. This means that games could theoretically run forever if teams continue to trade round win after round win.

So long as a draw isn’t called, a single match can just keep on going. That’s exactly what happened in one particular game on Ascent throughout 2020.

One hour and 28 minutes is the longest game in Valorant history so far, according to a December 28 post from Riot Games.

A total of 58 rounds were played, making it more than twice the duration of a regular game, if said game went the distance. 

There are no specific details on who was in the match, whether a vote was called for in the end, or what rank this all played out at. It’s safe to assume the players in that lobby all took a break after that one.

Most kills in professional Valorant

With competitions taking place all over the world, pro players have had ample opportunity to showcase their skills. While eliminations aren’t everything, being an aggressive player certainly comes with some style points.

Indian player Debanjan ‘DEATHMAKER’ Das currently holds the world record for the most kills in a single map. During the TEC Challenger Series, Velocity Gaming secured a 21-19 victory on Haven over GodSquad. Throughout this lengthy map, DEATHMAKER came one away from a 50-bomb, dropping 49 kills on Jett.

DEATHMAKER has a fitting alias, as he currently holds the record for the most kills in a single map.

When it comes to the most kills overall in professional Valorant, however, that record is currently held by Brady ‘thief’ Dever of Luminosity Gaming.

The North American player has a staggering 1,171 kills to his name at the time of writing.

While there are no leaderboards that track this particular stat for competitive or unrated, we still have a decent idea of who’s leading the charge.

Early into the release of Valorant’s competitive ladder, ‘lunviu’ placed in Iron 1. After grinding up the ranks, they swapped over to unrated where they secured a 73 kill win on Split.

In terms of the highest overall kills in Valorant, there’s currently no way to track this record. 

Most popular weapons in Valorant

From now until the end of time it’s likely the Vandal vs Phantom argument will continue on. Everyone has their preference from the top pro players to casual grinders, you’ll get a different answer everywhere you look.

But Riot cleared up the debate once and for all on December 28. The Vandal reigns supreme as the ‘deadliest’ weapon in the game. Players have tallied more kills with the weapon than any other in Valorant.

Naturally, the Phantom follows close behind in second place. Though the third entry might come as a surprise.

While the Operator is a fan favorite pick and Sidearms can always come in handy, it’s the Spectre that rounds out the top three. The powerful SMG has the third-most kills of any weapon in Valorant to date.
