Niantic is no longer taking requests for new Gyms and PokeStops in Pokemon GO. Now, the developer is taking petitions in order to remove unwanted PokeStops and Gyms in their game.

The removal service is meant to benefit business and building owners who have Stops and Gyms located on private property or in dangerous areas. There is now also the option to report issues with a PokeStop or Gym. This can be used for technical issues where a Stop is no longer working due to a bug or glitch. It can also be used if there are issues accessing the point of interest in real life (for example, new construction now makes it impossible to reach a spot).

You can visit Niantic’s website to petition for a PokeStop or Gym to be removed.

A Reddit user has recently discovered a way to choose your Eevee’s evolution in Pokemon GO. Eevee appears to evolve at random in normal cases, but the discovered method seems to allow players to choose what evolutionary path their Eevee will take. The trick requires knowledge of the Pokemon anime episode “The Eevee Brothers,” in which three brothers all owned their own “eeveelutions.” By using the nickname of the respective eeveelution, players may manipulate what Pokemon their Eevee evolves into.

Pokemon GO is available on Android and iOS devices.
