Try making a forecast: Will Niantic update Pokémon Go to allow users to trade Pokémon by the end of January 2017?

What do you think the chances are?

Here's how AlphaCast works:

1
Gaze into the Future

Look at the predictions of others. Learn precisely how rosy people expect the future to be.

2
Contribute Predictions

Add your own predictions to the discussion. Be surprised when they aren’t met and reflect. Predictions provide the ideal feedback loop to build and demonstrate foresight.

3
Start The Conversation

Use predictions to sell what your are passionate about. Ask leaders to make predictions to justify their prioritization. A new prediction thread is a great way to start conversations.

4
Just Do It

Don’t worry too much about your first predictions being “right” or “justified”. The learning comes from the feedback loop, not spending hours making your first prediction and then giving up.

 

Expert Tip!

Update your forecast often to reflect your latest thinking and information available to you.

Updating your forecasts often ensures you stay up to date with the rest of the crowd. To make this even easier for you we have a mobile app you can download so making a forecast from anywhere is just plan easy!
