Pokemon Go April 2022 Plans Include Multiple Events, New Raids, and New Legendary Pokemon

Niantic has revealed its April 2022 plans for Pokemon Go, with multiple weekly events, raids, and Pokemon Spotlight Hours coming through the month.

Four limited-time events will run throughout the month, each with its own central theme:

  • April 1: April Fools' 2-Oh?-22
  • April 3 - 7: All Hands Rocket Retreat
  • April 12 - 18: Spring Into Spring
  • April 20 - 25: Sustainability Week
Tapu Bulu charges into Pokemon Go as a five-star raid in April.

Multiple legendary Pokemon will be making their way to five-star raids throughout April, including the next Alolan legendary in Tapu Bulu and the Therian Formes of both Thundurus and Landorus. The schedule for April's raids looks like this:

Raid Hours will also continue in April, with a special Raid Hour highlighting a specific five-star raid Pokemon every Wednesday from 6 PM to 7 PM local time. The list of featured Pokemon is as follows:

  • April 6: Thundurus Therian Forme
  • April 13 and 20: Tapu Bulu
  • April 27: Landorus Therian Forme

Finally, a Pokemon Spotlight Hour will occur every Tuesday from 6 PM to 7 PM local time, each week featuring a different Pokemon more frequently in the wild with a special bonus to match. Here's the rundown of spotlighted Pokemon and bonuses:

  • April 5
    • Pokemon: Stunky
    • Bonus: Amount of Candy earned when transferring a Pokemon is doubled
  • April 12
    • Pokemon: Bunnelby
    • Bonus: Amount of XP earned through evolving a Pokemon is doubled
  • April 19
    • Pokemon: Oddish
    • Bonus: Amount of Stardust earned by catching a Pokemon is doubled
  • April 26
    • Pokemon: Sunshine Form Cherrim
    • Bonus: Amount of XP earned for catching a Pokemon is doubled

The Pokemon Go April 2022 event schedule will begin just as the current event, Lush Jungle, is wrapping up. If you've finished all of the events and need some extra challenges before April begins, try taking on the current five-star raid Tapu Lele or Mega Charizard Y in a Mega Raid.

Pokemon Go Thundurus Therian Forme Raid Guide: Best Counters, Weaknesses, Raid Hours, And More Tips

Niantic has announced the full slate of raids for Pokemon Go in April, and trainers will meet the second Therian Forme of a Unova-region legendary beginning April 5.

Thundurus Therian Forme is on its way to Pokemon Go once again, featuring as the five-star raid April 5-12. It follows Tornadus Therian Forme's run as the top raid which ran from March 15 to March 20. Thundurus Therian Forme's time as a five-star raid Pokemon was announced along with the Pokemon Go April 2022 event schedule, which runs concurrently with the game's Season of Alola event introducing Pokemon Sun and Moon to the game.

Thundurus Therian Forme is the second of three Therian Forme legendaries to rotate into the five-star raid scene, with the final member of the trio Landorus Therian Forme entering the arena April 26. If you caught Tornadus and plan on taking on Landorus, you might as well challenge the Thundurus raid as well, so check out our tips below.

Thundurus Therian Forme returns to Pokemon Go in mid-April.

Thundurus Therian Forme Raid Schedule

Thundurus Therian Forme enters the five-star Raid ring starting April 5 at 10 AM local time, remaining there until 8 PM on April 12. Unfortunately the game does not follow any set schedules with its raid--there's no guarantee Thundurus will be charging into a Gym for a battle--but the game constantly tells you who's around to raid, so just keep an eye out.

There is one hope for those who need a Thundurus Therian Forme appearance though: Pokemon Go's weekly Raid Hour on Wednesday nights. The Raid Hour event on April 6--running from 6 PM to 7 PM local time--will feature the Bolt Strike Pokemon at nearly every Gym in the game. If you want a guaranteed shot at Thundurus Therian Forme, gather your friends and head out after dinner on April 6.

Thundurus Therian Forme And Counters

Thundurus Therian Forme is an Electric- and Flying-type Pokemon, a combination that does not yield very many weaknesses. In fact, only two of Pokemon's 18 types will produce extra damage to this beast, so it's important to know what those are and plan accordingly.

Ice- and Rock-type Pokemon are the only two Pokemon types with moves that will deal extra damage to Thundurus Therian Forme. Unfortunately the only Pokemon in existence with that dual-typing, Generation VI's Aurorus, isn't in Pokemon Go yet, so you'll have to get creative with your team. Alolan Ninetales is a solid choice for this raid, as it's a powerful attacker with no weakness to Thundurus's attacks, while Beartic, Lycanroc, Sudowoodo, and two of the three Regis in Regirock and Regice will also make great choices.

Types To Avoid

Thundurus has triple the amount of resistances that it has weaknesses, meaning one-third of all Pokemon types will do reduced damage in the heat of battle. Bug-, Fighting-, Flying-, Grass-, Ground-, and Steel-type Pokemon are all weak against Thundurus's Electric- and Flying-type barrage, so do not bring any Pokemon or use any attacks of those types and you should be home free.

There's still some time before Thundurus Therian Forme joins the five-star raid roster, so get yourself ready by taking on the current five-star raid Tapu Lele or the Mega Charizard Y Mega Raid if you haven't done so already.

Analogue Achieves Revenue and Net Profit Growth to HK$5,351 Million and HK$314 Million Respectively Despite Adverse Market

Tag Template - News Hub PRO

HONG KONG, Mar 25, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - Analogue Holdings Limited ("Analogue" or the "Company", together with its subsidiaries, collectively the "Group") (stock code: 1977), a leading electrical and mechanical ("E&M") engineering service provider in Hong Kong, today announced its annual results for the year ended 31 December 2021 ("the Year" or "FY2021") with revenue and net profit growth, posting a solid performance amid the pandemic and global uncertainty.

Highlights
-- Total revenue reached HK$5,350.7 million, an increase of 10.8% compared with adjusted revenue in FY2020
-- Profit attributable to owners of the Company grew 4.3% year-on-year to HK$314.3 million
-- Revenue from maintenance services increased 7.2% to HK$945 million
-- High dividend payout ratio maintained at 50.2%

During the Year, the Group's total revenue increased by 4.4% year-on-year to HK$5,350.7 million, mainly driven by both Building Services and Environmental Engineering segments. After adjusting the revenue for FY2020 from Transel Elevator & Electric Inc. ("TEI"), which has been reported as an associate of the Group since August 2020, the Group's total revenue would have increased by 10.8% year-on-year. In particular, revenue from maintenance services, a source of recurring income, increased by 7.2% year-on-year to HK$945 million, accounting for an increased proportion to 17.7% of the total revenue. Gross profit amounted to HK$878.4 million, with gross profit margin at 16.4%. Profit attributable to owners of the Company grew by 4.3% year-on-year to HK$314.3 million, even in the absence of such wage subsidies as the Government's "Employment Support Scheme" in 2020, which is evidence that the Year is most encouraging.

The Board has proposed a second interim dividend of HK7.25 cents per share. Together with the first interim dividend of HK4.02 cents per share, the total dividend for the Year amounted to HK11.27 cents per share, representing a high dividend payout ratio of 50.2%.

The Group has drawn on its exceptional project execution capability to deliver on the order book throughout 2021. Contracts-in-hand reached approximately HK$11,309 million as at 31 December 2021. Tendering activities remained active during the reporting period, with a total of 1,676 tenders valued at over HK$1 million each.

Dr. Otto Poon Lok-to, Chairman of Analogue Holdings Limited, said, "In 2021, although the E&M engineering sector was less affected by COVID-19 when compared with other industries, we still faced various challenges, such as interruptions in tendering for public works projects, high material and labour costs, etc. At Analogue, we upheld our motto 'We commit, We perform, We deliver' while doubling efforts to overcome challenges, which included optimising all facets of operation. In terms of business mix, we intentionally increased the proportion of contributions from maintenance services to ensure a stable source of income. Regarding geographical expansion, we leveraged our successful track record in Hong Kong, Macau and Mainland China to establish footholds overseas. As an advocate of innovation, we continued to direct our efforts towards enriching business operations through applications of new technologies. Our strategies have resulted in increased revenue and profitability in FY2021 despite the testing environment."

With active project delivery throughout the Year, Building Services segment's contracts-in-hand reached HK$4,892 million as of 31 December 2021. As an early adopter of cutting-edge building technologies, the Group pioneered the first high-rise building in Hong Kong using the advanced Modular Integrated Construction ("MiC") method. This track record won it HK$150 million worth of MiC contracts in FY2021. In light of the surging demand for MiC, the Group has been expanding its Multi-trade Integrated Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing ("MiMEP") facilities and developing its proprietary ATAL Building Services Prefabrication and Modularisation Construction Technology ("ABSPM") to further improve the speed, cost, safety, and quality of construction work. During the Year, the Group participated in the building services work for one of the biggest data centres and secured additional installations and maintenance projects from major data centre operators in Hong Kong. Other key projects secured include a major hospital term contract and seven residential projects worth approximately HK$800 million, as well as a major contract for a Hong Kong racehorse training facility located in Guangzhou.

Environmental Engineering segment's contracts-in-hand amounted to HK$4,977 million. During the Year, the Group won four term contracts for the Hong Kong Government's Water Supplies Department that brings citywide benefits, covering all waterwork installations throughout the territory, such as the maintenance of mechanical and electrical equipment, instrumentation equipment, water quality monitoring equipment and plants. In addition, the Group took part in the iconic project of the Hong Kong Government Drainage Services department to upgrade the existing sewage treatment works to become the effluent polishing plant in Yuen Long which has been upgraded to meet future development needs, including expanding the treatment capacity from 70,000m3/day to 150,000m3/day. The deployment of the most advanced sewage treatment technologies featuring green design and community provisions will create an exemplary community asset and a more sustainable Hong Kong. The Group also commenced the operation and maintenance works for the sewage treatment plants in San Wai and power stations in Castle Peak and Black Point during the Year.

Information, Communications and Building Technologies ("ICBT") segment's contracts-in-hand increased by 2.7% to HK$877 million during the Year. To contribute to the development of Hong Kong's "Smart City" and "Smart Economy" initiatives, the Group rolled out a number of ICBT projects, including its proprietary Internet of Things ("IoT") applications for Smart Washrooms, Retro-commissioning (RCx) of electrical and mechanical systems, Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) Monitoring, Indoor Positioning and Video Analytics, as well as its in-house developed Cloud-based AI Energy Management Platform during the Year. In particular, the AI Energy Management Platform, IoT applications and Video Analytics technology have been chosen by more than 20 shopping malls, while its Photovoltaic ("PV") systems will be installed in more than 100 schools and NGOs. Such continuous contributions to streamlining digital processes and applying them will ultimately benefit society and advance the Smart City development in line with the government's blueprint.

The Lifts and Escalators segment's contracts-in-hand amounted to HK$563 million. During the Year, Anlev Elevator Group ("Anlev"), the Group's global brand of lifts, escalators, and moving walkways, completed the installation of Hong Kong's first commercial puzzle-stacking automated parking system, which advances "Smart Mobility" in Hong Kong, with the form of flexible automated parking system (APS). Designed by Anlev, the APS leverages innovative technology to provide 30 to 100 percent more parking spaces within the same footprint to alleviate the shortage of parking space in Hong Kong, enhance traffic planning and bring greater convenience to motorists. Following the success of the first APS project, Anlev was awarded a further contract to provide an APS for the new government building in the Kai Tak Development Area. For overseas markets, the alliance with TEI, one of the largest independent lift and escalator companies in New York, effectively enhanced the Group's operational and technical capabilities, and widened its service offering to international customers. The Group's new market strategy is also evidenced by the establishment of its first lifts and escalators company in the United Kingdom.

"On the green initiatives front, I am pleased that the Group has become the first E&M engineering group in Hong Kong to obtain a Sustainable Finance Certification from the Construction Industry Council and achieve the Green Loan Pre-Issuance Stage Certificate under the Green and Sustainable Finance Certification Scheme launched by the Hong Kong Quality Assurance Agency, as well as issuing a green financing instrument that will go towards enhancing water and wastewater management. In continuing this green journey, we are actively collaborating with prominent universities to develop more green energy and innovative environmental solutions," added Dr Poon.

In 2022, despite the emergence of the fifth wave of COVID-19 in Hong Kong having hampered the pace of economic recovery, on-going significant investments in infrastructure, the "Smart City" initiatives, the rise of IoT, as well as the rapid development of the Greater Bay Area are expected to present tremendous opportunities to Analogue. The outlook remains positive for the Group, which has been able to focus on its well-established foundation and innovative culture to sustain the operation through the uncertainties.

Dr Poon concluded, "Good opportunities arise even amidst challenging times. With strong business fundamentals and a sound financial position, we are well-positioned to grasp the growth opportunities ahead. Apart from organic growth, we will continue our efforts in exploring M&A opportunities in different parts of the world to support our expansion plans, with priorities placed on companies that have synergistic effects. 2022 marks the 45th anniversary of the Group. Over the past decades, we have dealt with numerous challenges, and have grown stronger from such experiences. With our pioneering spirit, utmost determination, wealth of experience and solid foundation, we are confident in achieving our expansion plans and propelling Analogue to new heights."
