Today, we are covering a Pokémon introduced in the first generation.  It has three poisonous stingers on its forelegs and its tail. They are used to jab its enemy repeatedly. May appear in a swarm. Flies at violent speeds, all the while stabbing with the toxic stinger on its rear. Beedrill is extremely territorial. No one should ever approach its nest-this is for their own safety. If angered, they will attack in a furious swarm. So, here it is, the one-hundred & thirty-ninth entry, Beedrill.

This session will also include an appearance from Creative Fellow at Nintendo, Shigeru Miyamoto. We'll be providing live coverage of it all and post any news that comes so keep checking back
18:17: The plan for Pokémon GO is for eventually all Pokémon to be available, but it began with the first generation to celebrate the 20th anniversary
18:23: Consultation with The Pokémon Company allowed for Niantic to make Pokémon rarer if they're rare in the main games and keep their style of personality. 18:24: Focus was put on the catching of Pokémon. Chances increase when the circle on a Pokémon is the smallest. You get experience points for methods such as Curve Balls
18:29: Pokémon GO Plus, as previously announced, connects with smartphones and tells you what's going on by the colour of the icon on the device and by vibrating. It lets you play without opening your mobile device. This was done to get players to look around while exploring, rather than just looking at their smartphones
18:30: Pokémon GO Plus flashes Green when there is a Pokémon nearby. Press the button and it osolates to decide if it is caught or not. If it flashes a rainbow colour, then the Pokémon is caught. If it flashes Red, then the capture failed.
18:33: Pokémon GO Plus is being primed to be launched towards the end of July
18:35: Pokémon GO Plus will be available in certain retailers and through online stores and will cost $34.99
18:36: Pokémon GO will eventually have connectivity with Pokémon Sun & Moon
18:38: Evolution in Pokémon GO is different to the main games. It happens using candies. Catch a Pokémon you will receive candies and by collecting them, they can be used to Power Up Pokémon or Evolve. Catch 25 Squirtle and you will get 25 Squirtle candy which evolves Squirtle into Wartortle
18:40: Trading will be implemented at a later point after launch
18:42: There are plans for big events where players group together at a later point.
18:45: Pokémon GO will be primed to be released towards the end of July but this is not a solid date.
