Glad to see that Unova Stones are going to be just as impossible to acquire as Sinnoh Stones (I still need one more of those to get Honchkrow)

A 2362 Mewtwo got away from me. I'm somewhat disappointed, but at least it wasn't an even higher IV.

I still don't have many Unova Pokemon >_< I had been hoping for some Drilburs which I could evo into Excadrills.

Sinnoh stones are super common from PvP (both your 3 daily trainer battles and 1 daily team leader fight) where they're a junk reward. Just find an ultra friend to battle each day, or stick to team leaders.

I never really do PVP (hence me being stuck at that part of the Jirachi quest line), but from the daily team leader battles, I pretty much have of Sinnoh stones (or lack thereof). Ive gotten 8 I think in the past month after what felt like 6-8 weeks with none

Or lucky, because it's a junk drop that shows up way too often =x

I toss them frequently, but I'm still sitting on 26. But I PVP and do my leader battle every day.

Huh. I didn't know dark blot was a location in the US. I thought it was in outer space.

And honestly it's not worth powering a perfect Gastly from 15 to 40, especially since there's no telling when or if Gengar will get another chance at SC or Lick (although Halloween is a good time for it)

My most recent 100 was a Azurill, but perfect Azurill is perfectly useless. He's too weak for UL and you're better off with a different stat distro for GL.

It makes more sense to evolve them first since they'll usually have better DPS that way. Granted, you shouldn't be doing a ton of powering up for most Pokemon in the first place. Once you hit lv30, a lot of stuff you'll use out of box and not power up at all. I have a team of Mamoswine -- levels 31-35 -- that I haven't powered up once and, if I had, I would have had less candy to evolve them. (Which is kind of a problem since in the past I had wasted Swinub candy like that.)

Got a few Mewtwo raids in today, but no shinies. One of the raiders was telling me that he heard that the Mewtwo dinner hour is going to be on a Tuesday in October, which is going to be fucking stupid if they run the Wednesday dinner hour as well. I'm looking at the Twitter feed and supposedly they *did* do something Wednesday after the hour itself or some shit. wtf?

Also SB Mewtwo is coming back to EX raids, which kinda sucks since I was hoping we'd see Darkrai if they're not using him as a normal boss. Their October line-up in general is garbage. Trapinch CD (instead of a ghost/dark/psychic type), flower crown Eevee breakthrough (even getting more Spiritomb would be better), and... well, at least we're getting some Giratina (I'm guessing we'll see Gira-O after Gira-A) in raids.

That's probably the easiest way to do it. Then just give her a team of 10CP Pokemon so you can OHKO everything.

Considering that SB is EX-exclusive and he's not even in EX raids for about another week, it would have been pretty fucking impressive if you had got one. XD

Depends on what you're talking about. IVs factor into CP so, if it's lower, it's likely quite a few levels lower. I wouldn't power up a 1-star or 2-star (which is sub-67), but a lv35 could be usable as-is if evolved.

However, in many cases, the answer is to just wait until you get something better.

Tauros isn't bad, compared to the other three Kanto regionals. However, I'm just pissed that we lost Zangoose and have had him replaced with Seviper for all this time.

Regionals aren't terribly rare within their region, except maybe Pachirisu.

The fact that 50% of stops is giving you that is unlucky. The quest given by a stop is locked to that stop until that day, and is the same for everyone.

I havent gotten any instances of that quest today

No way for me to trade to you unfortunately unless you use some kind of GPS hack (not recommended). Honestly just keep catching. Always comes when you least expect it.

@EvilMegas next time you open a gift from me, use a Lucky Egg (if you have one). It'll give you 100,000 Experience, which is like 50% more than you have now.

It won't count today because we already boosted our friendship level for today, but you can do it tomorrow

I don't really get it either, although I wouldn't mind that task since it's an easier one. I've had the 10k one twice now and I generally don't get 7k eggs from that far away.

Oh God no.


He's not that rare. I've caught two in the past week. I was going to post the list of its possible transformations, but I can't seem to readily find it.

It sucks that you started late, because after one CD there was like an hour of guaranteed Ditto spawns where they were camo'd as Meltan.

Those points pushed me to level 40 too, so good for both of us.

Is it just a coincidence, or do you start to get more items from spinning discs at Pokestops/gyms when you hit level 40? Ever since Saturday I've been getting like twice as many as I normally do. It actually got pretty bad, since the level 40 rewards alone put me 100 items over my maximum.
