To celebrate the change of season, Niantic is hosting an autumn-themed Pokemon Go event. A new Gen 5 Pokemon will be introduced as well as other bonuses.

The 2020 Pokemon Go autumn event starts on Friday, October 9, 8 am PDT and finishes on Monday, October 12, 1 pm PDT. That’s an 11 am EDT start for those on the east coast of the US and 4 pm BST for those residing in the UK.


To the surprise of nobody, the event will feature various fall-themed Pokemon. These ‘mons can be found in the wild and in eggs when you hatch them.

Double effective Berries

Elsewhere, autumn is the time harvest and that seemingly applies to Pokemon Go, too. As a result, Berries can be found more often when spinning PokeStops. There will also be berry-themed Field and Timed Research.


During the event, all Berries will be twice as effective when giving them to your Buddy Pokemon as treats. Perhaps more excitingly, however, is that Pinap Berries will also become doubly as effective.

This means that instead of just double Candy when capturing a Pokemon, you’ll actually get four times the amount! Other Berries such as the Razz variety won’t be doubly as effective, though.

Autumn-themed Pokemon

Meanwhile, the following Pokemon will be appearing more frequently in the wild:

  • Oddish
  • Vulpix
  • Bayleef
  • Hoothoot
  • Sudowoodo
  • Yanma
  • Pineco
  • Zigzagoon
  • Seedot
  • Shroomish
  • Plant Cloak Burmy
  • Foongus

Others will be appearing in 5km eggs but those Pokemon weren’t released in the Pokemon Go blog post.

Additionally, Shiny Vulpix will be spawning more often. The ever-popular Fox Pokemon has already had its Shiny form released previously but few trainers will want to miss out on the chance to get another or even their first!

Deerling Pokemon Go
Deerling changes color depending on what seasonal form it is…


As is very apt for the change of season, Deerling will be introduced to the world of Pokemon Go for the first time. The Season Pokemon has four forms – Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter – so expect to come across its autumn variant.


It evolves into Sawsbuck, which has the same four forms, also. Deerling needs 50 Candy to evolve, so if you want to get Sawsbuck during the event you’ll need to catch as many Deerling as possible. When using a Pinap Berry though, you’ll only need to catch five of them!

There’s plenty to look forward to in Pokemon Go during October. Charmander is coming to a Community Day a second time with the exclusive move Dragon Breath and there is even a surprise Raid Boss to look forward to at the end of the month.


xQc claims he’s “done” with Among Us after receiving lots of hate

Twitch streamer xQc has recently claimed that he is “done” with the popular online multiplayer game ‘Among Us,’ apparently due to people who clip out his reactions when he gets frustrated.

At this point, everyone knows that Among Us has skyrocketed in popularity. The online game on PC and mobile devices has quickly become the talk of the town, and so far it has shown no signs of slowing down, still being one of the top streamed titles on Twitch every single day.


Despite this consistent popularity among (no pun intended) players, there’s now one person who says he’s “done” with the game: streamer Félix Lengyel, better known by his online name ‘xQc.’


When most people hear that a Twitch streamer or YouTuber is leaving a certain popular game behind, it’s usually because that person doesn’t think it’s fun anymore for one reason or another. With xQc, on the other hand, the situation is a bit different, as he even outright says that he still “loves” the experience Among Us offers.

During a recent Twitch stream, Lengyel alluded that the reason he’s leaving the game behind is because of people who like to clip out his fails and frustrations when playing. While he didn’t outright say that this is the reason, all the evidence points to that being the case.


“A lot of livestream fails people, need hate in their life to guide them through their normal hurdles,” Lengyel said during the stream. “They need to feel something, they need to chase demons that aren’t there, to feel like their life is worth living, and since I won’t be playing anymore, they won’t have anything to clip anymore.”

While watching anyone fail at a video game can be a bit fun, it’s easy to see why xQc would decide to leave Among Us behind. Watching yourself show up on livestream fails consistently can’t be easy.
