Niantic Labs Announces Ingress Prime Now Available

We're here to introduce you to Ingress Prime - a game that'll take you to interesting places in the world around you.

To celebrate Ingress Prime's launch, Niantic is also hosting an event in Pokémon Go where players can catch a shiny green Cubone and a blue Ponyta.

Shiny Ponytas and Cubones are now spawning in the wild at a slightly higher rate than usual and will likely not appear in eggs.

While this would be fine if the game had been made better, according to numerous game's fans, the sci-fi massively multiplayer title is now demonstrably worse.

On top of that, Niantic is also releasing two brand new shiny Pokemon that trainers might be able to find in the wild. It certainly feels like this could be added to Pokmon Go properly in the near future.

Earlier today, Niantic sent out a press release announcing the release of Ingress Prime, a sequel to their popular Ingress mobile game.

The team at Niantic is now hoping some of the features in the newer version of Ingress can be implemented into GO eventually.

In Ingress Prime players (dubbed agents) are tasked with visiting virtual portals situated around real-world landmarks in order to collect "Exotic Matter".

"Ingress Prime is built on Niantic's Real World Platform and serves as a key driver for innovation around gameplay and technologies for all Niantic products", said John Hanke, founder and CEO of Niantic. Your account information such as names, badges, progress, and other important data will be transferred over from Ingress to Ingress Prime. The tides are turning, however, and as the popularity of Pokemon Go slowly (but surely) fizzles out, Niantic Labs is launching a reboot of its original AR game. It is a game wherein you are tasked with choosing one of two sides in a conflict which involves the worldwide players.
