Last night, the rest of the non-Legendary Generation 4 Pokémon got released into Pokémon GO. However, with this came the evolutions that are exclusive to when you evolve near a Lure Module, but it has been discovered that there is a way to get Leafeon and Glaceon without it. With the prior evolutions, there was a naming trick where a nickname will force the Eevee to evolve into a certain evolution. This time, you can get Leafeon if you nickname your Eevee Linnea and Glaceon if you nickname your Eevee Rea. This is tied in with the Eevium Z quest of Pokémon Sun & Moon as they are the names of the trainers you face with those Pokémon. This only works once. In addition to this, overnight Shellos became a Regional Exclusive Pokémon based on locational longitude. Everything west of 0.0000° longitude is West Sea Shellos and everything east of 0.0000° longitude is East Sea Shellos

As we reported on Monday, Uniqlo had a competition for various T-Shirt designs for Pokémon that will then get sold, with the grand prize winner having their T-Shirt implemented into Pokémon Sword & Shield. However, the winner was since found to have violated the rules having previously sold their own design which they entered into this contest. Due to this, that entry has been disqualified and no Grand Prize winner will be included and thus it means that none of the T-Shirt winners will be implemented into Pokémon Sword & Shield as the note about that element has been removed from all official material. They'll provide further information as it comes so be sure to keep checking back
