Pokémon Go Ultimate Hack!

Confession time: We have not caught a single Caterpie or thrown even one PokéBall. But we get that a whole lot of folks think Pokémon Go is the most awesome thing to come down the pike since Candy Crush (which is the game we’re still playing, thank you very much!). With that in mind, we’re pointing you toward a guide that is going to change how you play the game.


The folks at — which describes itself as offering “tips, tricks and downloads for getting things done” — are ready to help you take your game to the next level. Literally. In fact, they claim that by following their extensive list of helpful tips, you will “go from novice trainer to unbeatable gym leader faster than you can spit out the PokéRap.”

And yes, there’s such a thing as a PokéRap.

Live and learn, kids. Live and learn.

In any case, the article will teach you tricks like how to earn more experience points, why you want to transfer pokémon with low combat power to Professor Willow in exchange for candies, and how a Lucky Egg can give you a major boost.  (It almost sounds like we know what we’re talking about, doesn’t it?) And we’re told the advice on how to “take over PokéGyms With Ease” is a must-read for those playing in teams.

Now, for those of us uneducated in all things Pokémon Go, a lot of this reads like wildly entertaining gibberish. For example, this pro tip the site offers up: “Evolving four Pidgeys into Pidgeottos will cost you 48 candies and net you 4,000 XP with a Lucky Egg activated, but just one Pidgeot will cost you 50 candies and only get you 1,000 XP with a Lucky Egg.”

But for those in the know, the article not only contains lots of helpful tips, but contains a ton of helpful links. So read it, absorb it… and then go forth and capture!



Anxiety Blob Is Here To Help!

We’ve all felt anxiety at one point or another, but have you ever wondered what it might actually look like? When Nanea Hoffman, founder of Sweatpants & Coffee, decided to not only face her anxiety but give it form, she found it to be slightly lumpy, vaguely worried… and surprisingly cuddly! And thus, the Anxiety Blob was born.


Before long, the folks at SP&C had teamed up with Fleece Menagerie, makers of a pretty fantastic assortment of stuffed animals, to turn AB, as we like to call him/her, into a creature so adorable, you’ll happily take your anxieties to bed each night.

If you’re not familiar with Sweapants & Coffee, you really should be. The site — which bills itself as “a bastion of comfort and sanity in an often uncomfortable world” — has been providing readers with thoughtful commentary, inspirational memes,  hysterical weekly tweet round-ups and so much more on a daily basis since it’s inception three years ago. And given that our own mission here at Moment of Awesome is to offer people a daily respite from their worries, cares and concerns, it’s only natural that we’d love a site devoted to helping people feel better about themselves and the the world in which we live.


Better still, Nanea — yes, we’re fortune enough to be on a first-name basis with the site’s Big Cheese — is one of the best people you could ever hope to cross paths with. She and her crew work hard to cultivate a cross-section of regular and guest columnists who give the site a true feeling of community. There’s a reason so many visitors walk away knowing that they’ve found their “tribe!”


Now, if you’re wondering how in the world you’ve lived without an Anxiety Blob of your very own for so long, then click here to order your very own. Like the anxieties which spawned them, no two Blobs area alike. And because everyone — including that friend you think has it all together — has things bubbling beneath the surface you probably know nothing about, they also make the perfect gift!
