It’s time to talk about Team Rocket Boss Giovanni’s favorite Pokemon: Persian.

Persian has been in Pokemon GO since the game’s launch in July 2016. Before that, it was widely known as the favored partner Pokemon of Team Rocket’s Giovanni and, thus, the “character” foil to the antagonistic Meowth. Alolan Persian was released in-game in June 2018 and the Pokemon’s Galarian form, Perrserker, joined the game a couple of years later in June 2020.

Persian is a unique case where each regional form has its own set of stats—especially when it comes to CP threshold.

The one thing they have it common is that they all come from their corresponding PokeDex number #052, Meowth, and can be evolved from it using 50 candies.

Each Persian has been sorted into its own subheading for reader convenience.

Kantonian Persian

The original Persian is from the Kanto region with a PokeDex number of #053. Also known as the “Classy Cat” Pokemon, its six whiskers give it a bold, fierce appearance. It uses these whiskers to sense danger in its environment. However, if trainers give it scritches in that area, it will immediately become friendly.

Kanto’s Persian is a pure normal-type with a weakness to fighting-types and double resistance against ghost-types. It has the following stats:

It’s best moveset contains the quick move Scratch and charged move Return.

Alolan Persian

Who could forget the often called spherical appearance of Alolan Persian? According to its PokeDex entry, its rounded face is actually a “symbol of wealth” in the region. “Persian that have bigger, plumper faces are considered more beautiful,” it reads. Like its Kanto cousin, Alolan Persian’s PokeDex number is #053.

This Persian is a pure dark-type with vulnerabilities to bug, fairy, and fighting-types. It’s strong against ghost and other dark-types with a double resistance to psychic-type attacks. It has the following stats:

Its best moveset contains the quick move Feint Attack and charged move Foul Play.

(Galarian) Perrserker

Perrserker is the most unique of the Persian forms in Pokemon GO. Not only is this Pokemon not quadrupedal like its cousins, it also sports an entirely different name and PokeDex entry.

Perrserker is also known as the “Viking” Pokemon—likely due to the shape of the fur on its head. In fact, its PokeDex entry makes reference to this, citing that “what appears to be an iron helmet is actually hardened hair. It is best known for its fighting spirit and eagerness for battle. Perrserker’s PokeDex number is #863.

As a pure steel-type, it has vulnerabilities to fire, fighting, and ground-types while being resistant to bug, dragon, fairy, flying, grass, ice, normal, psychic, and other steel-types. It has additional strength against poison-types.

Perrserker has the following stats:

Its best moveset contains the quick move Metal Claw and charged move Ironhead.

Hands (paws?) down, the winner here is Perrserker. Not only is it pretty impressive in its own right, but it also has the highest CP threshold and most impressive stats. If that’s not enough, its long list of resistances should seal the deal for any trainer looking to add a solid pure steel-type to their team—that isn’t Registeel.

New World team share details of upcoming server transfers in Q&A

Published

on

New World players have been eagerly awaiting news on the promised server transfers that Amazon Game Studios announced to remedy long server queues on launch. While they have been delayed, many questions were answered regarding the subject during a Q&A on the New World forum earlier today.

The Q&A took the most popular questions from the community regarding the server transfer service and provided some insight into its limitations, what players can expect, but sadly, no official date for it to join the game.

When server transfers are added to the game, all players will receive a single transfer token that is tied to the account, not character. This means that if you have multiple characters, you’ll only be able to transfer one. These tokens will be permanent so they can be used any time after distribution.

Amazon also confirmed that players will only be able to transfer between servers in the same region, but cross-region transfers are something the team is looking into for the future.

Something that players were worried about was not being able to transfer into servers that are currently marked ‘full,’ but the team attempted to ease fears of this by sharing that many servers will have the ‘full’ tag removed over the coming days.

“We monitor full status on a daily basis with changes as recently as today,” the spokesperson wrote. “’Full’ doesn’t indicate a server that always has queues, it indicates a server that during typical peak usage has a substantial queue. We will be relaxing Full status on many worlds when transfers start, to allow the most flexibility possible. After transfers have slowed down we will re-evaluate which worlds might still need the designation.”

If server transfers overwork a server, the team said they will re-evaluate and hand out new transfer tokens to players where necessary.

There were plenty of other questions answered so if you’d like to know what was said in detail you can check out the Q&A here.

NoPing releases its Dota 2 roster, will reform for next DPC season

Published

on

NoPing e-sports and its Dota 2 rosters have agreed to part ways ahead of the next Dota Pro Circuit season. In a statement, NoPing said it will be fielding a new roster for the next season, but the organization has no news to share at the moment. 

This is the second top-level South American roster to split with its sponsor organization in order to pursue other opportunities, following Thunder Predator doing the same following The International 10. 

“By decision of all players in the team, we will not continue with the current lineup,” NoPing said. “We respect the decision and wish success to the players that took the NoPing VPN name to various achievements in Dota 2.” 

Neither NoPing nor the players—William “hFn” Medeiros, Gonzalo “Darkmago” Herrera, Oscar Chavez, Farith “Matthew” Puente, and Jose “Panda” Padilla Hernandez—specified why the decision was made, but it is likely due to the team failing to qualify for TI10. Even though they were one of three teams from SA to make it to a Major, finishing ninth at the WePlay AniMajor, they flamed out in the regional qualifiers, losing to Infinity and Team Unknown.

It is also unclear if the players wish to continue playing together or if they will disband entirely and look to find teams elsewhere rather than pursuing a new sponsor together. Here are the players that are now looking for a new home. 

With this announcement, only beastcoast and SG esports remain untouched among the top four teams in SA, meaning they have an edge heading into the next DPC season if their squads remain together. The ex-TP players did note that they would continue playing together, so even if they don’t find a new sponsor they will likely still be a force in the region.

Call of Duty: Mobile season 9 is called Nightmare

Published

on

Call of Duty: Mobile’s season nine is almost here. The new season will be called Nightmare, Activision revealed today, as Halloween is right around the corner.

As usual, a lot of new content is dropping with the season. This includes a Battle Pass (BP) which contains a new operator, weapon, blueprints, calling cards, charms, and more.

At tier 14 of the free BP, players will be able to get the Tak-5 Operator Skill. This skill gives players the ability to heal their team in battle. Besides this, players will be able to get the Swordfish at tier 21. This tactical rifle was first seen in Black Ops 4 and is now making its way to CoD: Mobile as well.

Modern Warfare’s Havoc Sawmill will be the new map for season nine. Additionally, the Halloween Standoff is returning to the game for a limited time as well to mark the festival.

Later in the season, players will also be able to unlock a new weapon, tactical equipment, and battle royale class through seasonal challenges. The weapon is called Thumper, which is a grenade launcher with just one ammunition. Flash Drone is the new tactical equipment that blinds enemies. Finally, the Pumped BR Class gives players a jetpack to take to the skies.

The season will last for about a month. The new content will be available gradually throughout season nine, Nightmare.
