Current/Upcoming Events:

Community Day Event - Website Link
Every month will feature a special 3 hour window special event for communities to get together.

Each new Community Day Pokemon will have it's shiny variant available!





Current Legendaries






Friendship & Trading!

After a long wait, Trading is finally here! You can friend anyone in the world, but to do actual trades you will need to be within 100 Meters of that person to do so. Even if you are far away, friending someone is still a nice and good idea. You will start to notice "Gifts" popping from Pokestops. You can take these Gifts and send it to your friends at any time. Among nice little items like Ultra Balls and Max Revives, will be a new 7k egg. These contain new Alohan Pokemon!

The Quest System - Special Research




Quests are here and they rock! Quests gives you an extra thing to work for with an award that scales with it's difficulty. For example you can be getting a Larvitar for a Throw 3 Excellent Throws in a Row, a Magikarp for 10 Pokemon caught or 5 Berries for catching 5 Pokemon. Remember, you can at any time delete the quest if the quest itself or the reward doesn't seem worth it.

There are 2 types of Quests, Field and Research. Field Quests can be found from any Pokestop (no Gyms though). Each Pokestop will hand out the exact same Quest per day to everyone. So if you find a good quest, like Hatch 5 Eggs for Chansey Quest, you can then share it's location with your friends so they can get it too. Research is sort of Pokemon Go's Story mode. This will be used to get the current Mystical Pokemon like Mew. It will have a bunch of stages with varying degree of difficulty with the end result of getting your very own special Mew!




Weather



Weather now directly plays a part during your gameplay! Depending on the weather in your local area, you can see more frequent spawns of those boosted Pokemon. Not only do these Pokemon appear more often, but all Pokemon of those types will be boosted as well. Meaning +5 levels and higher IVs as well. The max wild boosted Pokemon for lv 30s and above will be lv 35. This can become very useful in saving that precious stardust. All weather boosted pokemon also award you 25% more stardust upon capture.

Thanks for the thread!

Still playing, after all this time, but my motivation to engage has kinda died since they introduced legendary raids.

Nice to see the thread back. I stopped playing a month ago, but the release of gen 3 might entice me to come back and get to level 38. Chasing and catching new Pokemon was always the most fun part for me.

Raids were fun for a moment, but after I while I just felt dissapointed and burnt out. Legends didn't seem special at all.

Raids really made the local scene special. But I'm a little burned out at moment on that too. Legendaries are kinda cool. But mostly worthless. Esp since you can't place in gyms. My Raikou is likely the only 1 I ever really powered up. That one 1 of the few that is special.

This is an interesting thread for me.

I was AFK watching football and hanging with the family all last weekend. Went for a Poke walk before my team played on Sat night.

Caught some new Poke so I uploaded a couple screens to abload to post in this thread. That's when I first learned GAF had died.

I'm throwing a Halloween party tonight. It's Pokémon themed and I've invited most of the local Pokémon go players I've raided with. Should be fun!

Hello again from my side.
Got the 780 coins to buy the special incubators today and hatched all eggs I had. 5km eggs were pretty good. 10km was miltank ...

Also I found out about calcy IVs feature to propose the best couters for raids and gyms. Pretty great.
 
#17
Finally found you guys, muy bien
I have almost 500 Gastly candy. I've love to hit 1000, but I'd have to hardcore grind this weekend, not sure if I can do that.
Will probably hit as many Entei raids as possible this weekend to get a 1900+ Entei.

I wish more ttars raids would spawn. ;_; Managed to drop by one after work today and there were 40 people there. Most I've seen in a while around my area

I really think the majority of people who stopped playing would have remained if there was a trading system by now.

Wish they had made that priority.

Friend of mine got the Duskull last night. He now has every shiny.

I got the Sableye but no Duskull yet.

Gonna be grinding hard for 36, just hit 35 on Tuesday and I'm closing in on 700,000

Edit: Just super proud that I finally solo'd an Alakazam raid!

Sweet. Haven't managed to solo it myself but haven't tried it in a while. The last one had focus blast which destroyed me hard.

Honest question I haven't found an answer for: are cheaters unable to join raids? I've used GPS joystick (never got a pokemon with a mark though) before and the game simply kicks me out of raids every time.

It feels like there's more demand for Tyranitar raids than Entei raids these days, though that could just be because there are far fewer of them. I don't expect this to change much once Suicune hits, either.

Of course, of the two I've been able to do this event, I tried to two-man one of them like an idiot (spoiler: failure) and the one I did today was successful but I caught it on the one throw I forgot to pinap like an idiot.

From what I gather you need 11 fully powered Machamps to 2-man a Ttar

When do the legendary raids swap again? I really want that Raiku. No one seems to care about Suicune anymore
Tuesday I believe is swap day

The other night I did three Tyranitar raids in a row, gathering 100 Larvitar candy in total.

Promptly used it on a 100% Larvitar I picked up a few months ago. RIP my stardust

I've been using discord scanners for a while now and they cover a very large area. Some of it is like an hour drive, and still I've never seen a 100% larvitar. That's insanely rare. Jealous af.

Curious: how often did you raid before the Mewtwo invite? (also congrats!)
I really only started raiding at all about 5 weeks before me invite. Did a few solo Magikarp and Quilava to get my weight up, get a feel for the systems. It was actually a Magikarp raid at a Starbucks gym on my campus that ended up being the EX location.
 
#41
oh shit shiny duskull/dusclops. more stuff i'll never catch neat.

Add me to that list then, RNG is almost never on my side with this shit. Plenty of regulars around here got multiple Magikarp shinies and Pikachu shinies by now, a few even had Sableye and Duskull ones now, and I am stuck with none still, and I caught ALOT.

Also looking forwrd to wednesday, when that pesky Suicune goes away and to hoping I have more luck with Raikou, Suicune just would not let itself be caught, still have the sole one from the 2nd raid I ever did, after that a whole lot of nothing.
Niantic sure doing their best to get me to kill the app sooner rather than later.

Spent most of the day raiding, think I did 5 Entei's today. Only caught 2 bleh-tiers though. I'm still not having much success with 1900+ ones though. Only seen 3 so far, and the 3rd one I encountered today also ran. I'm going to try again tomorrow, but I've pretty much given up hope. My 86% will have to do.

On another note, I now have 830+ Gastly candies. :D

Yay, glad to see this thread again. So is the Ex raid stuff still being tested? Because my area has really gotten shafted with those raids so far.

Yeah there are invites that were sent out immediately after the last I think, but my area got none this time as far as anyone can tell.

Been grinding hard lately, 36 and still running. Just want that stupid shiny Duskull. Over 750 and still no luck.

Also no EX pass for me. Damn this system, it's awful.
 
#49
Still haven't bothered with a second Suicune. It is time to bring out Raikou.
Wait what? Don't skip legendary raids; they are the best exp in the game. If you get in a coordinated group you can do 2, sometimes 3 legendary raids in a single lucky egg, netting 60k + catch exp. This current double candy event is also the best time to catch legendary and rare monsters, as well as transfer the extras for even more candy.

I don't care for experience at this point, I jumped to level 35 recently so there is very little waiting for me. Only will use the lucky egg I earned on a next double xp event.
