Finally caught a shiny Turtwig today (which was my big regret about not really participating in the CD). Plus, with the spawn points changed, even if I head out late to a CD again (well, when I'm home), I'll have spawns that pop up right around me.

I hate this ditto shit.


Again, I've had more luck with Zubats.

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.


No.

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

Have you been hitting more gyms that you have the gold medal for? That will get you more items.

I still have a few eggs left to hatch, but so far I've gotten shit from this egg event. I just wanted one Corsola and/or Heracross to finish the Pokedex.

Same gyms, same badge rank, but twice as many items as I normally do.

Love the spawn point changes. Caught a Larvitar at home this evening, along with a Drilbur that I GPS-drifted to across the street.

Also caught a 98% Gira-A.

No, he's been in 10k eggs since the release. He's basically gen 5's version of Dratini.

It's good that you got a shiny Turtwig. I didn't get to do their respective community days and still don't have a shiny Charmander, Dratini, Bagon, or Totodile to this day.

I did the Charmander day -- during which it was raining because, well, of course -- and didn't get a shiny from that. However, much later I caught a lv35 shiny so it worked out. Dratini I only managed to do towards the end because I was at either a wedding or funeral that day and never got a shiny. Bagon & Totodile I didn't do and never got a shiny. Honestly, I'm not that upset by not getting a shiny Totodile, but shiny Salamence is kinda neat and shiny Dragonite would have been a nice change of pace.

Are you also doing team leader battles? Otherwise just keep at it, you'll have a few stones within the week.

It's possibly a 0% level 1 (max CP for a 0% lv1 Salamence is 46). Low IV lv1 Pokemon can have ridiculously low CPs. A 0% Bagon would have 12 cp at lv1. And, it's worth noting, a 0% lv1 Mewtwo would only have 52 CP.

I've had a few Pokemon like that, but I haven't had a 0%

I would honestly rather have your luck. I got 2 Sinnoh stones today when even the 500 dust would have been more useful.

Like 90% sure that Niantic hasn't actually confirmed any of that yet, it's just speculation based on what was found in the code vs what Niantic has announced.

Plus if it's like their real-world events, you'd just be buying early access.

Make an alt and do legendary raids by yourself then, lol >_>

Otherwise try to find if there's a Facebook or Discord group for your area, or visit other areas.

I've done it with 3 with a good amount of time remaining, especially vs DB/SS which is a joke moveset. I still need to try a real wb duo.

I was having trouble with an Alolan Raichu raid, when I realized I didn't have a double Dark Tyranitar. So I made one and powered it up, but by then the raid was over.

I later found another Raichu raid, got my Tyranitar ready to kill.. and got wrecked by Grass Knot.

Why the fuck does a psychic air surfing Raichu know Grass Knot??

Hilarious aint it?

Though that can play to your advantage sometimes. At least my double ground Rhyperior does alright normally against Raichu, but mud slap and earthquake are slow. Grass knot will certainly kill it faster, but itll recharge a second earthquake immediately and Ill get ahead on damage pace

Because Pokemon have varied move-sets in the main games to make them slightly more viable for PvP and it carries over to Go. GK is a very recent addition to its PG moveset.

At any rate, Raichu knowing GK is just one more advantage for Gira-O (who resists it) and is neutral for Excadrill (who, iirc, now has the highest ground DPS, along with a Steel subtype)

Or you could just use a better counter =p

They should be re-releasing Gira-O after Gira-A leaves the game, who has higher DPS for stuff like that and a better resistance table.

I could, but this is also a game of resource management and I simply dont have several Giratina-Os, nor would I for several years unless it becomes a breakthrough mon.

Gonna be a bit for me to walk enough candy to evolve an Excadrill, let alone power it up

He's an easy duo. Once he comes out, you just need to find one other player. And you really don't need that many and he's more powerful at lv30 than a lot of other Pokemon at lv40. Honestly, ground is such shit as an attacking type that high DPS neutrals can out-DPS many of its top Pokemon.

You can find them in the wild. They're not super rare and they only take 50 to evo. And, because Pokemon Go is a resource game, you should avoid wasting candy powering things up. I have a team of 6 Mamoswine, all lv30+, which I evo'd from WB'd Swinub. Had I just powered up some good IV low level ones, I'd probably only have 2-3 Mamoswine, which is a lot less useful.

Alpha218 posted...

Krook looks like he's going to be inferior to TTar. Bisharp might be a bit better off, but he's likely out-DPS'd by Hydrogein. Not that any of this matters, because all of them are going to be blown out of the water by Darkrai down the road.

He's rare enough that I've never seen one in the wild, playing every day. And evolving a bunch of Pokemon takes resources too, even if not Stardust. Like Mamoswine takes Sinnoh stones which he mentioned he isn't getting. You have to work with what you have, make some tough calls, and find a balance that works for you.

The Sinnoh stones are literally the least of the problems. If you do your daily team leader and PvP battles, you'll be drowning in them eventually. I just threw 40 away again because I realized I had 56.

I don't do trainer battles often, but I train with the team leaders a lot and I've only gotten two stones from them.

Today's community day sucked. I played almost the whole time and only got two shinies. Did a Giratina raid and didn't even catch it.

The Trapinch spawns were way, way down compared to other CDs. I didn't participate that much in the CD (because I hate the new hours), but what little I did play I saw far more non-Trapinch than I saw Trapinch. Usually they seem to overload things with CD Pokemon.

And I did another Gira raid without a shiny. It's hard to know how many I've done since it's been back (because I didn't think to check my dex and write down that number beforehand), but it's likely I'm over 20 dry now since I'm at 28 encounters and don't think I was able to do that many raids when he was out the first time.
