A new feature will be coming to Pokémon GO later this week: Friends!
This will allow trainers to connect with local friends by sharing Trainer Codes and even unlock special benefits by playing with them — ✧ Spin Photo Discs at Gyms and Poké Stops for a chance at Gifts! You can only give these to friends; and they contain helpful items and maybe even Alolan Pokémon Eggs ✧ Increase your Friendship Level by giving Gifts, trading, and participating in Raids/Gym battles together ✧ Higher Friendship Levels unlock cool bonuses such as an attack boost during Raid battles ✧ Friendship levels can be increased once per day, per friend ✧ If you are Level 10 or higher and near a friend, trading is possible which gives you Candy for the Pokémon traded ✧ Trades require Stardust, and that requirement will lessen the better friends you are with someone ✧ Special Trades, such as trading Shiny or Legendary Pokémon, may only happen once a day with a Great/Best Friend, and require a lot of Stardust

How did the Nintendo E3 and Treehouse gameplay make you feel? Are you more excited about the games?
Congratulations! You beat the Pokémon League, and now you're the new Champion! But what comes next? After all, there's only so much fun to be had out of battling from running around beating up the AI. Enter competitive battling. Say goodbye to your Revives and soft resets, because this is the real deal. Today I'll be explaining some of the common factors about the Pokémon you'll encounter in competitive battling. Hopefully these guidelines will be useful when building your own team and when facing an opponent. Before I jump into discussing set archetypes, however, we need to define some terms. What is a set? And what is an archetype?

Welcome to Azurilland's Game of the Month! We hope that you enjoy the games and participate in the fun.
What is Game of the Month? On the fifth of every month, the hosts will release a new game for the community to complete. These games include but are not limited to crosswords, word searches, and quizzes. Games are themed around Pokémon or Azurilland itself. All members who complete the month's game will be listed in next month's post. Submitting the most correct answers in the shortest time will also be recognized.
Are there any rules? Players must complete these games entirely on their own unless the game specifies that collaboration is allowed. Research is allowed unless otherwise told. You are also allowed to submit incomplete entries if you cannot solve everything. Any other necessary clarifications will be listed in the game's description.
This Month's Game: Kanto City Crossword
NOTE: You can record your answers by either filling in the puzzle or saying which answer goes where.
**IMPORTANT**: Meru is a derp and misspelled 'Vermilion' as 'Vermillion,' so please use two L's in your answer for that blank. My apologies!
Want to submit your own idea? If you wish to contribute a game of your own, you may do so by filling out the following form and sending it via Private Message to Merushii and Thundawave. Please maintain a Pokémon or Azurilland theme when creating your game.

What is the Monthly Art Contest (or MAC for short)?
The Monthly Art Contest is a fun competition to promote art where members create original works (digital or traditional) based on a theme — these submitted works are then voted on by the community, and the entry with the most votes wins.
The winner of that month's competition will then choose the theme for the next, just like the Signature of the Month contest.
