POKEMON Go news includes an Equinox extension, and a big new Mewtwo update.
Pokemon Go developer Niantic has extended the Equinox event after a recent outage.
Fans were unable to login to the Pokemon Go app earlier this week, as Niantic worked on a solution to server problems.
Some fans speculated that Niantic was adding Gen 3 Pokemon to the game (see the gallery below), although sadly this wasn’t the case.
As a result of the outage, Niantic decided to extend the Equinox event, which will now run until 9pm UK time on October 3.
“Early this morning, we discovered an issue which prevented several players from logging into the game,” Niantic explains.
“After working with our partners, we were able to resolve the issue and can now confirm that login functionality has fully stabilised.
“As a result of this outage, the equinox celebration will be extended by 24-hours and will now end at 1pm PDT on October 3.
“We greatly appreciate your patience and hope to see you out and about earning Stardust and hatching eggs.”

Pokemon Go fans are currently able to hatch rare Pokemon from 2km eggs as part of the Equinox event.
And with the event in full swing, fans have identified exactly which Pokemon can be hatched from 2km eggs and Super Incubators.
According to Reddit users, common Pokemon include Slugma, Pineco, Porygon, Remoraid, Chinchou and Slowpoke.
The uncommon category features Nidoran, Larvitar, Pichu, Oddish, Zubat, Magikarp and Mareep.
In terms of Rare Pokemon, fans can find Skarmory, Sudowudo, Togepi, Dratini and Miltank, while Ultra-Rare Pokemon include Tyrogue, Snorlax and Chansey.
Fans hoping to hatch the rarest Pokemon will want to invest in some Super Incubators, which hatch eggs 1.5 times faster than regular Incubators.
The Pokemon Go Ex Raid beta has been extended, as Niantic sends invites to players from across the world.
Trainers from the UK, Spain, Brazil, Sweden, Netherlands, France, Poland, South Africa and India have been sent Ex Raid Battle invites.
The UK Raids will take place in the likes of Guildford, Taunton and Lichfield.
Interestingly, the latest batch of Ex Raids won’t just take place in sponsored locations like Starbucks.
