00:00 - 00:03I was working in Niantic's Pokemon Divsion
00:03 - 00:05and John Hanke came in
00:05 - 00:07and he was pissed
00:07 - 00:09He said "You guys need to step it up!"
00:09 - 00:11"Our users are dropping like flies"
00:11 - 00:13the employees threw out some ideas
00:13 - 00:17generation 2, decreased walking requirements, shinny mon
00:17 - 00:19until some smartass said:
00:19 - 00:24"make new mon only available from eggs and put a hat on pikachu"
00:24 - 00:27"a santa hat"
00:31 - 00:32"a hat"
00:32 - 00:36and John loved the idea!!!!
00:36 - 00:41new pokemon only available from eggs in winter and a new hat!
00:41 - 00:46So all of these people who were waiting for legendaries,
00:46 - 00:54or waiting for trading and PvP battles
00:54 - 01:01now have to hatch all old eggs before they can hatch anything new
01:03 - 01:08good thing its the middle of winter!
01:08 - 01:12people will need to walk in the freezing cold to make room for new mon!
01:12 - 01:16and incubators are still 150 coins each
01:16 - 01:22that's over $2.00 per incubator
01:24 - 01:28You can't even discard old eggs if you wanted to take advantage right now
01:34 - 01:38We had tell the Niantic customer service employees
01:39 - 01:44to just start responding to emails with "r."
01:42 - 01:47One guy asked if they are getting increased pokemon storage
01:47 - 01:50so i told him
01:50 - 01:53here you can upgrade your pokemon storage
01:53 - 01:56It's only "$2.78"
01:57 - 01:59get used to it, fanboy.
02:01 - 02:02You want mew/mewtwo?
02:02 - 02:04nope not yet
02:07 - 02:11a santa hat and new mon only in eggs.
02:13 - 02:15maybe..
02:15 - 02:22maybe we should get rid of wild pokemon and just start selling them
02:24 - 02:28we have more people complaining about the game than we do playing.
02:28 - 02:30John Hanke has lost his mind
02:30 - 02:31- he's crazy
02:31 - 02:33- money crazy
02:36 - 02:39he doesnt have a clue
02:40 - 02:42he's crazy for santa hats.
02:50 - 02:55that man loves his santa hats.
02:56 - 02:58do you plan to keep working for Niantic?
02:58 - 03:04- no im going to start a new company
03:04 - 03:09we're going to make santa hats for pokemon go
03:09 - 03:11looks like a good business.
03:16 - 03:20You want a pikachu with a hat?
03:23 - 03:26maybe someone in the audience?
03:31 - 03:36Screw Niantic I'll sell you incubators for half the price
