The hardest Pokemon to catch

Catching Pokemon in one of the hottest mobile games of all time is not always easy, regardless of bugs and other annoyances that might cause you even more trouble than normal. That’s because not all Pokemon have the same capture rates, a recent video explained. Furthermore, a high flee rate will make it difficult to catch some of the creatures in Niantic’s hit game. That means you’ll be able to catch some of them a lot easier than others, and you might have a tough timecatching them all, as the saying goes.

In what follows, you can see a list of the 15 most difficult Pokemon Go characters to catch, as compiled by Business Insider.

You should make note that the base percentages change as your Trainer increases. If you want to have any hope at all of catching the Pokemon on this list, you should definitely invest in better balls and berries for them.

Know more about the key of POKEMON GO

unduhan-9Over on a Pokémon Go Facebook group, Articuno’s owner kaitcovey claims to have been sent the legendary bird from the game’s developer Niantic after contacting them about an issue.

Seen below, a video making the rounds shows Articuno as a gym leader in the Ohio area. This is further corroborated by a Reddit thread of users claiming to have seen the same gym, with the same Pokémon guarding it. (UPDATE: The alleged Pokemon was also shown off on a Twitch livestream, in which kaitcovey showed off the Pokemon and attempted to prove its authenticity.)

While it’s possible Niantic could be giving out Pokémon as apology gifts, asEurogamer points out, there’s also a possibility the game’s data may have been modified. The Pokemon series has always had a dedicated fanbase who enjoy manipulating the game’s code – either via Action Replay-style devices or downloadable PC software – to alter Pokemon, be it EVs and IVs, moves, or shiny status.

Whether someone has used an outside device to manipulate the game’s code – to change a Pokedex ID number to that of Articuno, for example – isn’t clear. We do, however, know Niantic recently updated Pokémon Go. One of the big talking points of the update was patching the game so it no longer allows the use of certain third party apps.

Pokemon Go ‘3-Step’ Tracking Removal Is Finally Explained – IGN News


“We have limited access by third-party services which were interfering with our ability to maintain quality of service for our users and to bring Pokemon Go to users around the world,” said Niantic. “The large number of users has made the roll-out of Pokemon Go around the world an… interesting… challenge.”


images-9If we’ve learned anything from Pokemon Go, it’s that people will go to great lengths in order to successfully beef up their Pokedex and increase their levels. Some travel the world in an attempt to catch ‘em all, some make additional purchases for phone battery packs to maintain a good charge, and others accidentally stumble off a pier trying to line up the perfect shot.

But a subgroup of players have taken things a step further, harnessing the power of technology to create their own tools used to game the system and guarantee success in Pokemon Go. While many of these venture into morally gray territory — particularly those that cheat the mechanics and skip the intended progression — it just goes to show that people will use any means necessary to become Pokemon Masters.

A majority of these techniques use the Android version of the game, since it’s marginally easier to modify than iOS. IGN doesn’t condone the use of any third-party applications designed to skip the intended Pokemon Go progression path, not only because it goes against the spirit of the game’s design, but also because we can’t ensure the safety of these applications. As always, cheat at your risk. Or of course you can always check out IGN’s comprehensive Pokemon Go Wiki Guide to get ahead.

And if you’re one of the millions of players trying to legitimately earn your Pokedex, it’s still fascinating to see the lengths some players will go. Below are five ways players are cheating at Pokemon Go.

Pokemon Trackers

Pokemon Go itself is not particularly handy as a map tool. Street names are not present, and the only way to know which locations are Pokestops is to select the stop and read its description. This can be an issue, because there’s no real way of knowing exactly where a Poke Stop is or how far away it might be at any given moment.

To remedy this, many amateur developers have taken to creating a Pokemon tracking tool. Using Google Maps in real time, many of these tools correctly identify the exact locations of these stops and gyms to make them easier to locate. As an added bonus, programs like the now-defunct PokeTracker will highlight specifically where different Pokemon were spawning, sending the user an alert describing which Pokemon were nearby and where they could be found.

It’s technically cheating, since the point of the game is to wander and explore and stumble into Pokemon intermittently. But, it still requires one to get up and move around in order to make their catches, which largely remains faithful to the main game.

Automated Bots

For those who merely want ‘em all without putting forward any of the work, there are entire bots dedicated to playing the game for you. By sending falsified data to the Pokemon Go servers, these bots can do almost everything from easily capturing Pokemon to hatching eggs and duplicating items from Pokestops.

It essentially turns Pokemon Go into an idle game, bypassing the actual “Go” elements needed to make the core game work. It’s an option for those who want to play Pokemon Go without… actually playing it, really.

The Poke Black Market

Perhaps “black market” is a bit of a strong phrase here, but there are some players who make extra fun money by selling their accounts to prospective buyers. Kind of like using an Automated Bot, this is a way for players to automatically give themselves a boost in their Pokemon Go street cred without ever actually having to set foot outside.

There are multiple places where one can do this, and if the Pokemon Go Accounts page on Facebook is anything to judge by, it’s a relatively popular practice. People share details about their accounts, explaining their trainer’s level, key Pokemon in their possession, and how much Stardust they’re carrying, among other things. Some of these go relatively cheap — I saw one listed for $15 — while others continue to grow increasingly expensive with impressively large collections.

Messaging Apps

Vanilla Pokemon Go doesn’t have much by way of a social function built into its program. Instead, players will have to step outside and meet up with others if they plan on being social at all. But, several messaging applications linked to Pokemon Go may implement communication between trainers into the game.

MessGo is one such program, offering people the ability to message nearby trainers to chat about nearby Pokemon, their rosters, and allowing them the chance to team up, catch Pokemon, get leads on where the best ones are spawning, and maybe even organize to take down a gym together. Pokemon Go has become a huge social phenomenon, and apps like MessGo seem to bolster this.

Emulators for Playing on Desktop

This isn’t a widespread practice per se, but it’s still an interesting one: some players have figured out how to run Pokemon Go on their desktop computer via an Android emulator and a GPS feeding spoofed info to the servers.

One user has accomplished this by running one such emulator and using GPS spoofing to take the game virtually anywhere on the map in an effort to catch more Pokemon from around the globe. In GPS spoofing, the program feeds false information about the player’s location to the official Pokemon Go servers.

It’s obviously not the best way to experience the game — there’s a reason it’s designed with walking and traversal on mobile phones in mind — but it’s still a playable version, allowing people to join in the fun and capture all of these pocket monsters without ever leaving the comfort of their desktop.

Battlefield 1 is best games for male

images-10DICE and Electronic Arts’ latest entry in the Battlefield franchise is marching to a trench line near you, but what do we actually know about it so far?
The easy stuff first: There’s a battle, there are fields and 1 is considered the loneliest number. Fortunately there’s a lot more to Battlefield 1 than that and below is a growing list of facts drip feeding out of DICE and EA.
When is it set?
There’s a double meaning to the name Battlefield 1 as it ties nicely with its time period, which is arguably the very first major conflict of ‘modern warfare’. World War One or The Great War is the backdrop to Battlefield 1, but it’s not exactly how the history books remember it.
It’s got a bit of alternate history to its narrative excusing the reason why so many prototype weapons have joined the fray en masse in Battlefield 1. These prototypes did in fact exist but were rarely ever deployed.
What maps will we be fighting in?
DICE has started revealing the fields we’ll be scarring in Battlefield 1 and they’ve got some juicy teases on the official Battlefield website.
• St. Quentin Scar – Northern France
“A massive attack on the scarred battlefields of northern France. As part of the Kaiser’s battle, the German army throws everything they have to try to break through the British lines. Prepare for truly cataclysmic assaults as you push through the trenches of the St. Quentin Scar. Be the first soldier to break through the fortified lines and assault the pristine village of Travecy, untouched by the war… until now.”
• Sinai Desert – Egypt
“Engage in all-out war in Sinai Desert, a scorching hot battlefield located just East of El-Jifar. From infantry skirmishes in the narrow streets of the village of Bir el Mazar to dogfights above the majestic cliffs, you’ll need to make tactical use of the dunes as you engage in explosive battles. When all hope is lost, reinforcements will arrive in the shape of a powerful Behemoth: a deadly Armored Train charging through the desert sands.”
• Amiens – France
“A destructive clash in a majestic city. Fight on the streets and squares in French city of Amiens during the German spring offensive. A struggle in crumbling alleys, a courthouse, around bridges and railways where the British and the Germans desperately seek to control the depths of the city.”
• Monte Grappa – Venetian Alps, Italy
“Take part in one of the final battles among the peaks of kings in the Venetian Alps. High up above the clouds a desperate fight for control of mountain forts are challenging even the toughest soldiers. Utilize the massive fort cannons to stop the advancing enemies as they scale the mountainside. Up here, in this furious struggle, the Austro Hungarian Empire holds the upper hand, but the Italian Army won’t stop until they’ve taken back what’s theirs.”
• Empire’s Edge – Adriatic Coast
“Along the Adriatic coast a fierce struggle for land and life is taking place. A rugged but fortified shore becomes the battlefield for an empire under siege. What was once a beautiful Mediterranean village by the coast is now transformed by mechanized war, where waves and dreadnought battleships pound the remains of Italy’s Great War.”
What modes are there going to be?
The usual suspects are here – the staple of a Battlefield game – but DICE has already revealed a new type of mode they’re debuting called Operations. Basically they involve multiple maps as attackers and defenders get in massive tug-of-war rumbles.
• Conquest
“An all-time fan favorite of Battlefield players, Conquest is a large-scale game mode with up to 64 players fighting for the control of key objectives. With large armies on foot or behind the wheel and the addition of fearsome Behemoths, Conquest brings together all the elements of the signature Battlefield All-Out War.”
• Domination
“Domination offers a fast-paced infantry focused combat in close quarter locations. It’s a smaller, but more focused version of Conquest, and the fighting revolves around strategic objectives. Ready your shotgun and sharpen your hatchet – in the Domination game mode things tend to get close and personal.”
• Operations (NEW)
“Operations is a completely new way to experience Battlefield multiplayer, giving you the opportunity to fight on an entire front of the Great War. In a sequence of inter-connected battles, a team of attackers attempts to conquer ground and push the frontline forward, as the defenders are trying to push them back. “
“Should the defenders fail to hold their ground on a map, the Operation doesn’t stop here: they will fall back and regroup on a different map, while the attackers will push the assault. Sectors may fall, but players reinforced by gigantic Behemoths can still turn the tide.”
• Rush
“Communications and artillery were crucial during World War I, and Rush mode will have you interacting with both of them. In Rush, the Attacking forces must find and destroy the Defending force’s Telegraph Posts, which the defenders can use to call in artillery strikes.”
“The Defenders can deny the Attackers by disarming the explosives they plant, but should the Telegraph Posts be destroyed, the Defenders must fall back to another sector. The Attackers win the battle if the Telegraph Positions in every sector are destroyed. The Defenders come out victorious if they’re able to run the Attackers out of reinforcements, or by having at least one Telegraph Position left intact when time runs out.”
What about a single-player campaign?
Now what total buffoon would release a Battlefield game these days without a riveting single-player campaign? Think of all that massive warfare as a delicious backdrop to an alternate history of World War One. Sorry, no space battles though.
DICE hasn’t yet said much about the single-player campaign as they are focusing on making sure the multiplayer-side of Battlefield 1 is ready for front line deployment later this year. Lead designer Danny Berlin did say it would “more accurately reflect Battlefield’s open sandboxes.” The story will be from multiple points of view also.
What vehicles do we get to play with?
Vehicles are a serious cornerstone of Battlefield and the new Battlefield 1 is no exception as they even include World War One-era tanks. There’s also armoured trucks, motorcycles and four-legged modes of traversal (horses) to get us around.
Tanks are now a “teamplay-based armored vehicle class that we’ve never done before.”Players will need to work together to get the most out of these hulking machines of war.
We can take to the skies too with early aircraft retrofitted for the new ways of war as they compete for air supremacy and aiding allies on the ground. Yes, we can also pilot the massive Zeppelin of mega doom, and ride the armoured train known as the Behemoth.
“The airplane was a new technology during this period, and these machines had to do a lot of work to fight gravity. To capture that physicality, we focused more on the feeling of weight and drag and how to express that in our planes,” said a DICE senior designer.
“If dogfighting with jets was about pressing a button when you heard a beep, dogfighting with these machines is more about maneuvers, speed, and throwing bullets towards your target.”What classes can we enlist in?
Battlefield 1 splits itself across four main classes of soldier, but there’s also special roles as a Pilot or Tanker when you step into a vehicle. Assault are explosive experts, Support resupply and suppress, Medics heal and repair, Scouts snipe and provide recon.
“We worked hard to give each class their own distinct style in Battlefield 1, while making sure to stay true to the setting and the era. They all have their own little visual quirks that set them apart,” said DICE’s Julian Schimek.

“Every Class is now more efficient in combating enemy infantry. They still have different things that make them unique, but we wanted to make players feel like they were able to go toe-to-toe with anyone else they see running around on foot.”

Battlefield purists might note that a certain Engineer class is no longer on the sign-up sheet. DICE assures us though that’s because their abilities and perks have been split between Medic, who can now repair vehicles, and the Assault class with demolition.
• Assault
“Assaults come equipped with explosive Gadgets to combat vehicles, making them the go-to Class for taking down stuff that rolls, flies, sails, or does anything besides walk on two legs. These are your classic close-quarters specialists – if you’re facing one, you’re going to want to engage them from a distance, because once they close the gap you’ll lose your advantage.”
• Support
“When you absolutely, positively want to keep your enemy from moving, the Support class provides sustained fire to take out enemies or suppress. Their weaponry is fit for close and medium range and typically has a high rate of fire, letting you lay down a steady stream of bullets towards anyone you’d rather keep in one place. And when it comes to bullets themselves, they’ve a trick up their sleeve: their Gadgets can keep teammates resupplied or help protect positions.”
• Medic
“…Medics aren’t just trained in the art of keeping their teammates healthy – they can repair vehicles, too. They can still hold their own in the combat department, with medium-range weapons that can put down an enemy so fast that healing an ally might not even be necessary.”
• Scout
“These are your long-range specialist, able to take out enemies from afar with powerful sniper rifles. If you’re the kind of player that likes finding a nice, safe hill to hide on and engage enemies from a few hundred meters away, the Scout is definitely for you. But they are instrumental for team play as well – the Scout class can use its range and Gadgets to provide reconnaissance to their team, too, surveying the area and calling out locations for their teammates.”
• Pilot / Tanker
“Deploy into the driver seat of a plane or tank in Battlefield 1 and you’ll eschew your typical class in favor of the two new Vehicle classes. These replace your typical classes, letting you trade in your Medic or Support kit in favor of playing as a Tanker or Pilot. When you’re deploying into a tank or a plane, those vehicles are your primary weapon, and you’ll be fully absorbed into that role, rather than being an Assault who happens to by flying a biplane.”
The following three classes are referred to as Elite and are Battlefield 1’s version of pick-ups from Battefield 4 and Hardline. It’s a who-snagged-it-first system so when their respective ‘drops’ happen you better be quick to spawn as one of the three Elites.
Only a single instance of each can be in the battle at once and so it does prevent others from getting the option to use it until a new drop at specific spawn points.
• Flame Trooper Elite
“Wrapped in fire-resistant gear, a gas mask, and carrying a powerful flamethrower, the Flame Trooper brings with him chaos. Stay far away if you can, but if you find yourself eye-to-eye with the Flame Trooper, you’d best muster your courage, fix your bayonet, and charge into battle before he notices you. One wrong move and you’re likely to spend your last moments seeing red.”
• Sentry Elite
“The Sentry moves like a human tank. With a water-cooled automatic machine gun at his hip and strapped in plated armor, the Sentry can shower enemy positions with lead while still being able to withstand a lot of damage. His main weakness is his greatest strength – in order to keep up his defense, he eschews the use of a gas mask in favor of additional armor plating.”
• Tank Hunter Elite
“The Tank Hunter has mastered the use of the 1918 Tankgewehr, an absolute beast of a weapon. Standing almost as tall as a man, the Tankgewehr is capable of damaging enemy vehicles over great distances. With a well-placed shot, the Tank Hunter can focus fire on particular parts of the enemy vehicles, taking out the tracks, machine guns, or cannons on armored vehicles.”

Material Needs, Perler beads :

  • Black
  • Brown
  • Dark yellow
  • Light yellow
  • White
  • Dark green or Dark red
  • Green or Red
  • Light green or light red
  • Peg boards
  • Ironing/ perler paper
  • Iron
  • Hot glue gun & glue stick


To begin, use the question block guide below to lay out 4 of these blocks onto your peg boards.

Next, we need to remove some of the perler beads on the side edges of each sprite. Make sure to do this BEFORE you iron the beads together. On two of your question blocks follow the pattern: keep two, remove two starting at the bottom and working upward. For the other two question blocks follow the reverse pattern: remove two, keep two starting at the bottom and working upward. The pictures provided below show what the final products should look like.

Once all the appropriate perler beads have been placed and then removed from your question block, place perler paper over them and iron them together.


Use the guide below to create the bottom and top panels.

When all your perler beads are placed appropriately on the peg board place ironing paper over them and iron them together.


Use the guide below to create the item that will serve as a handle.

When all your perler beads are placed appropriately on the peg board place ironing paper over them and iron them together.


When you iron perler beads, work slowly! Move your iron in small circles over your project. Make sure that all the beads are sticking properly to the ironing paper; you know that this happens when you can clearly see the perler beads underneath the paper (the colors appear very bright and vivid). It is important to be careful so ensure that the perler beads do not move around on the peg board while you are ironing. I’ve had some times where beads have come loose and flipped sideways in the middle of ironing and my sprite was trashed.


Start with your four question block panels and hot glue them together by snapping them together using the crevices you’ve made. You can put hot glue in these holes but the “puzzle piece” like nature of them makes them perfectly stable without any glue.

Once all four question blocks are together and the glue has dried place hot glue all around the edges of your bottom panel and attach your question block piece. I found it helpful to turn the question block sides piece upside down and attach the bottom from the top.

Finally, glue the 1-Up or Super Mushroom that you have made in the middle of the top panel and there’s your lid.

Congratulations you’ve made a Super Mario “?” Block Perler Box!


When working with hot glue, work quickly but do not rush or worry! Hot glue has a generally quick drying time, but it can be scratched off of perler beads with relative ease (so long as the glue isn’t smushed between two panels or in a really tight space). Waiting an appropriate amount of time for your hot glue gun to fully heat up is especially important. When working with a fast drying glue, you’re going to want enough to come out of the gun so you can glue your project correctly. Some glue guns can also be finicky with what position you hold them in; mine, for instance, won’t have any glue come out of it if it is pointed downward. It only works if I have it pointed side to side or up. If your glue gun won’t shoot any glue just try moving it around a little bit.
