@Nanis23
@Mac_Arrowny

And I've done a poor job of nicknaming people so I don't know who "SuperNerdTR is from gamefaqs" or I would include him as well.

I'm sitting at 1 day to ultra with all 3 of you and wanted everyone to have an opportunity to coordinate a lucky egg before we tier up.

Meanwhile ..

@Drakeryn we are 9 days from BF so we have that right switch the corner. You are level 40 though so I suppose I can just help myself you that one.

.

And @JackMan we are 3 days from ultra so that's coming up soon. Though I have a few people around 7-9 days so I might wait a few days to hit it and lump you in with them if they are close.

.

Also there are a bunch of people I didn't nickname and could use help identifying.

Oh and how was everyone's Community Weekend?

My spoils were as follows:

Bulb(1) - 96
Char(1) - Shiny27
Squirtle(1) - 93
Dratini(3) - Lucky98, Shiny56, 98
Larvitar(3) - 100, Shiny53, Lucky96
Beldum(1) - 97
Mareep(q) - 93

Evolved each of them up to their 3rd form to get the special move. I know it's strictly a downgrade for Dragonite, but I'm hoping either Draco Meteor gets buffed or Outrage gets nerfed at some point.

Didnt end up getting out this weekend but I did get a couple Dratini by my house which was nice.

Did everyone see the PvP announcement today?

Soon you'll be able to challenge another Trainer at any time in Pokmon GO. With Trainer Battles, you can match up against another Trainer using a Battle Code, then face off using teams of three Pokmon. When the match is over, both participants will receive great rewards, including a chance at rare Evolution items. To make sure the battle is even, Trainers must compete in the same Trainer Battle League, which determines the highest CP permitted for the participating Pokmon.

The fast-paced battles take place in real time, and your Pokmon will be able to use both their Fast Attack and Charged Attack moves. You'll also be able to use Stardust and Candy prior to battle to unlock a bonus Charged Attack for your Pokmon.

Battles aren't just about who has the toughest Pokmon and the strongest moves. Timing is important, too. If you keep an eye on your opponent's moves, you may be able to deploy a Protect Shield to save your Pokmon from taking critical damage. But you only have a limited number of Protect Shields before your Pokmon will be left defenseless against big attacks.

Your opponent will usually have to be nearby for you to initiate a Trainer Battle. But you can challenge Trainers you're Ultra Friends or Best Friends with from any distance.

If you're looking to improve your Trainer Battle skills, take on team leaders Spark, Candela, and Blanche! You can earn daily rewards when training with a team leader, including Stardust to help power up your Pokmon. You'll also be working toward earning the Ace Trainer medal!

Start training and get ready for new ways to compete with Trainer Battles in Pokmon GO!

Yeah, help yourself. (I was looking at our friendship and thinking you were going to be making this topic soon)

RoronoaTobi is @ctesjbuvf
starfox I assume is @stafoc

For community weekend I got a shiny Charmander, Eevee, Dratini x2, and Mareep. Eevee is the only one I really care about (this one will be a Glaceon, still going to need a couple more for Leafeon/Sylveon). Also I evolved a couple TTar because why not. I've now got a full squad of 6 for Smack Down.

I'm really bad at coordinating these things and I'm not that bothered about levelling up, so feel free to do it whenever you want. I'll keep sending gifts as I get them.

Also, I got a shiny Dratini and Cyndaquil, two shiny Larvitars and four shiny Pikachus.

When you go from Ultra Friends to Best Friends you get a hefty exp boost. If you have a Lucky Egg going when you receive the boost it gets doubled like all other exp. So its nice if possible to coordinate with your friend so that the day you are to get the promotion you both wait to open a gift from each other until you both have an egg going.

That's a nice haul, any with good IVs?

I wasn't catching chikorita or cyndaquil because I cleaned up well enough during their CDs but I was still shiny checking them all and didn't see one.

I think for shinies I only found
1 Eevee 46%
2 Dratini. best was 56% and evolved to dragonite. Worst got traded to wife for shiny Charmander, which was the 27% I evolved
1 larvitar, 53% evolved to ttar

I caught a TON the whole weekend too, including non stop during the 3 hour window, but had pretty bad pick.

My wife on the other hand got 2 shiny of each Charmander, Squirtle and Bulbasaur, 1 Eevee, 3 Pikachu and 4 Mareep.

Well technically you can't.

I have a gift from you but had not sent you one in a bit so we'd be stuck at 1 day from promotion until I opened it.

But if you would like to benefit 100k from the tier up instead of 50k we can try to find a time that will work for you, mac and myself. Then I can post here 5-10 minutes before the designated time to confirm so you can have your eggs going.

The meltan quest line is absolutely atrocious.

It has "catch/evolve X or Y" at a bunch of different stages, and unless you ran through it very very fast you end up stuck on Task pages for things that are barely spawning in.

Yeah, they upped the spawn rate of all those things for a window of time, and yeah they had some quests that lent themselves towards some of them as well, but unless you could dedicate all the time necessary before they unflipped those switches you are just SoL.

Page 3 has "Catch a Ditto". Which was the reward for the "Let's go: make an excellent throw" task, but unless you knew that and you saved one of those reward turn ins you are stuck waiting for an actual ditto which could take days or weeks.

Page 4 has "catch 5 steel type", which depending on where you live is freaking awful. Yeah they had magnemite's encounter rate turned up, but if you didn't get to this page until later on, you will be stuck on this one for a long time as well.

Page 5 has evolve a grimer, and the evolve ones are generally terrible. If I have a perfect or near perfect IV grimer, chances are I already turned it into a Muk. And so now I have to catch enough other grimers, to evolve a presumably shitty IV'd one into a Muk just for the pleasure of wasting 50 candy. This page also has "Catch 5 Gulpin or Slugma". Gulpin encounter rate was sky high, but again, if you get to this page later, you are pretty SoL. Slugma is rather uncommon and except for the event spawning I don't think I've seen a wild Gulpin.

Page 6 has evolve a magnemite, which is the same complaint as the evolve a grimer one. I don't WANT to waste 50 candy evolving a shitty magnemite That's 13 catch+release of a relatively rare pokemon. Why can't there just be a "Show the Professor your Magneton" button and have that count the same? See, look, here is my 98% IV magneton I made forever ago, and that should count! This page also has catch 5 exeggcute. And this is where I've been stuck. I got to this page the last day of the altered spawn rates, and I caught 4 exeggcute. I am still at 4/5. But even when I get PAST this page, because one will show up eventually, there is no end in fucking sight.

Page 7:
Evolve 1 Drowzee
Catch 1 Cubone
Evolve 1 Scyther

Same complaint for the evolving. I don't even have a good scyther in my possession currently. I barely have 40 scyther candy so i'm currently walking the shitty scyther I do have so when I reach this page I'll be able to spend ALL my candy to make a badly statted Scizor. Standard evolution complaint for drowzee as well, but at least I have a few hundred of those candy so it wont be as bad.

Page 8:
And the crap cherry on top of the crap sundae.
Catch 2 Omanyte or Kabuto
Catch 2 Lileep or Anorith
Catch an Aerodactyl

Like, fucking WHAT? Of this page Omanyte and Kabuto will actually be the easiest, because there is a random spot in town where water types spawn in for seemingly no reason. There is no discernible body of water causing it, it just happens and always has, so I can spend a few hours there until the omanye and kabuto spawn. But Lileep? I never see them. Anorith? I never see them. Aerodactyl? I fucking NEVER see them. When I even get to this page I'm going to be stuck here for actually MONTHS.

And yes, all of these things spawned in regularly enough during the event. And Aerodactyl was one of the encounters for a field quest, but you had to know which one and you had to save the encounter knowing that you would need it.

This is the most absurd of all the special research.

Oh cool, a Pokemon Go topic.

I'm still stuck on "Catch a Cubone". This sucker seems like it has crazy low spawn rates. And I have no one to do Alolan Marowak raids with, because they either all have it already or don't wanna bother with it.

I only just got to the 4th part of the Meltan research. There are Magnemites around where I live often enough that it isn't too bad, but I didn't look ahead and the rest of those levels seem awful.

I'm still doing my 10 raids, but when I get to "catch a Cubone" RIP me, they basically never appear outside of events. Same for Omanyte/Kabuto.

The others are/were not so bad for me.
- I like Scyther way better than Scizor so I have a good IV Scyther just chilling.
- Here, Gulpin is super common, Magnemite/Anorith are moderately common. Even aside from recent Kanto events it seems like they upped the spawns of everything with a Gen IV evolution so I have a ton of Magnemite candy.
- I banked an Aerodactyl research task, otherwise I'd also be screwed on this one.

I only just got to the Magnemite/Exeggcute/raids step. Had a Magenmite Ive been sitting on for when I can get it to Magnezone so that went quickly. Exeggcute I havent seen lately, and raids I almost never do because I work at night and sleep through when raids are active.
