Title: Pokemon Go -- who wants to be friends?
Post by: Haruna on June 24, 2018, 08:41:31 PM
So Pokemon Go added a friend feature this past week and I thought it would be fun to be friends with some Pokemon Go-playing Arena members! We could send gifts (and trade Pokémon, but only if you’re very close by as trades are conducted in-person)

I don't think I'm allowed to post a link on how to send gifts, but if needed you can Google the topic and lots of good info comes up. If anyone needs help I can answer some questions, too (though I'm still learning how to do this since it's a new feature!) I think for safety's/privacy's sake, we could PM our trainer codes to each other instead of posting them publicly, since this sub is visible to non-Arena members Edit 6/30: Kiwi has pointed out that if you put your trainer code in a spoiler, this will keep it hidden from non-Arena members as only Arena members can see spoiler content. So if you'd like to keep it semi-private, just put your trainer code (and username because it's helpful) in a spoiler! ^.^ Mine is:

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Looking forward to being friends with you guys! Post here with your thoughts and your trainer codes :)

Great, tailrustedtealeaf! I'll send you a friend request :) (I'm PinkNinjaKitty). Do you want to post your trainer code there? I'm not sure if strangers might see it here and then I guess request you as a friend. Of course, you could always reject their request. I'm not sure of the best way to go about this!  ^^; Anyway, I'll message you in PoGo now!

Thank you for the concern, but I'm alright! It's no different than seeing people list their nintendo 3DS friend codes, and I need to have it on hand here anyway for when people ask.

Myself and my husband are the only ones we know who are still actively playing so we'd love more friends for gifts! My sister plays but infrequently as she has a lot of log in problems.

What do you guys think about getting Alolan eggs from the friendship gifts? I've hatched one so far and it was a Meowth. It's hard for me to keep an open space since where I work I can reach two stops and I spin them a lot. Even if you have an open egg space you might not get an egg from a gift. My husband has two open spots and is afraid to visit any stops before he can get eggs from gifts.
Overall it's an interesting feature and adds a different kind of challenge.

Yeah, I know what you mean about avoiding spinning stops in order to stop egg slots from filling with regular eggs. Currently I’m just trying to keep an eye on egg slots; I keep them all full and once an egg hatches I quickly open a gift  and usually one of the gifts will have an Alolan egg which I then incubate. I’ve been buying super incubators because I’m impatient :) (but only with in-game gym money so far; I haven’t given into buying incubators with real money . . . yet.) It does help the Alolan eggs hatch faster, of course, which is a nice feeling. I’m really hoping to hatch a white Vulpix but they’re pretty rare!

Already frustrated with the eggs. I've hatched 3 and two were meowths and 1 a rattata. Rattatas are spawning all over here why the heck would I want to hatch one?? Lol still having fun overall though. I like seeing the stops people got gifts from!

NinaMarie, I feel you on the eggs! Why Rattata, Niantic? Lol. A lot of mine have been Rattata; I’ve had several Meowth; and one Grimer and some Sandshrews, which are really cute! (I’ve been using super incubators and getting egg distance like a crazy person). I want to get enough Grimer candy to make a technicolor Muk :D My grail is Alolan Vulpix. Waiting for her will make it all the more special when I get her. Or at least that’s what I tell myself :lol:

Accepted your friend request, Lempuri! Hope you get your Alolan Persian, Sapphire Rain. Regular Meowth candy counts toward Alolan candy, too, so you can catch as many of those as you see. Right now I’m slowly collecting Vulpix candy . . .

Cheers, Haruna!

What kind of Alolans do you get from eggs? I wonder if it varies between countries or continents. I've gotten way too many Meowths and Sandshrews, luckily also a Vulpix and a Grimer.

I’m pretty sure those four, plus Alolan Rattata, are the Alolans available right now. That’s awesome that you got a Vulpix! So far I’ve hatched mostly Rattata (argh), and then after that about three each of Grimer and Sandshrew, as of today. I thought I hatched more but apparently only hatched two Meowth. No Vulpixes so far! Crossing my fingers . . .

Looking forward to the Squirtle Community Day today! I hope to find a shiny and to do a task that gets me a Squirtle Squad one :)
Title: Re: Pokemon Go -- who wants to be friends?
Post by: NinaMarie on July 08, 2018, 05:36:26 PM
I've missed out on pretty much every community day and the potential rewards. The 3 hour window is a bit inconvenient. LOL I learned about the timeframe for the first event AFTER it was over. I think the stars will be aligned today though! I've yet to get a shiny ANYTHING so here's hoping it's my lucky day!

I am actually hoping I hatch a grimer soon. The regular ones are nowhere to be seen around here. I caught one a long time ago and promptly named it smooze. Never seen them since.
Regular Vulpix have been showing up frequently so by the time I hatch any alolan ones I'll have enough candy to evolve two!

I'm glad I've got incense, I'm no longer on vacation so pokestops are few and far between in my area!
3 hours isn't a very long time, and pretty inconvenient to anyone working today.
Edit: Just visited the two pokestops in my area! Got a nice handful of Squirtles, and a shiny event one! ooo. I can't wait until the weather is a little more...my temperature to do longer hauls.

Aweseome, a shiny! :D

My sister and I got back a little while ago from the mall. Someone advised us to go to the mall to find Squirtles on Community Day, and it was good advice -- Squirtles were everywhere! I'm not kidding when I say there were probably fifteen around us at one point. I did the quest to do the Squirtles with sunglasses many times and named them after the Ninja Turtles. :biggrin:

I hatched 7 eggs yesterday and thought I'd share the results here. I'm going to list the locations they came from as well just for kicks.

x3 Rattatas - Duck, North Carolina; Tampa, Florida; Boston, Massachussets
x2 Sandshrews - both from Bay Lake, Florida
Meowth -Newport News, Virginia
Grimer - Oamaru, Otago New Zealand

Oh wow, this seems so much fun! I do not know anyone IRL who still plays, so when this gifting option came in I was a little sad to see another item just taking up space in my bag (and it can't be deleted...) - now I will have a chance to give them away to people who may actually find them useful :) I'll start adding you :)

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

With all these new variations and gens out, I currently heavily struggle with space... I can only catch about 5 pokémon at a time before my storage is full. I am not willing to buy space for money, but I am slow at accumulating coins via defending gyms :( Yesterday was a good day though, as I found more gyms where there was some space left for my guys, even if only for a short time, so I won't complain.

Ok, so this is fun indeed!

Thank you for all the adds and gifts, everyone! :) I also sent out a ton of them (and keep giggling at how they may look weird to you, as most of the pokéstops have local names here :D ) So far I got 4 Alolan eggs, and hatched a Grimer and a Sandshrew! I was about to check where they came from specifically, and I did see their origins just a few days ago, but as per today I can no longer see it, it only says "hatched" (and this is true for the rest of my Pokémon too.. do you also have this issue?).

I can't decide if I like Grimer or Sandshrew more. Sandshrew is so cute in colour and animation, but aw, Grimer is so... teenie! She's so small compared to my reguar Grimer - is that normal? (she's not XS)

Already walking with the third Alolan egg, but now I only have one incubator, and the eggs no longer hatch in half the time, so it will take awhile...

As for the friends-features: guys, I wish trading was not a locally restricted thing... Mr. Mime is such an everyday sight here that I constantly just pass him and don't even bother to catch anymore... I would be happy to send a few over to those who are not residing in Europe and don't yet have him if that was an option!

Wow, I'd never noticed that! I compared my Grimers just now and yes, my Alolan Grimer is smaller than my Kanto one!

Oh, I totally agree! I can see why Niantic had to limit trading (spoofers, boo) but it would be so fun to trade with you guys even though we don't live close by. I don't have a Mr. Mime -- that's one of the few I still need and I don't think I'll get to Europe anytime soon!

Speaking of trading, I traded a Pokemon with my sister last night and it turned into a lucky Pokemon! It was an Eevee and I traded her an Alolan Meowth that also turned lucky. I thought older Pokemon were supposed to be more likely to turn lucky, but we had caught/hatched both of those that day. *shrug* Anyway, I'm glad my first (and possibly only!) lucky is an Eevee. And I can't wait for Eevee community day!!!!!

Yep, I'm on Android. I really hope this is just a glitch in the latest update, and will be fixed with the following one, knowing where all my Pokémon are from was such a cool feature, and it existed ever since I can remember...

Not much news here... I was away for the weekend and didn't get to play. Still struggling with space issues (quite heavily now: now that I hatched another Alolan Pokémon, a Meowth, I only have 2 free slots...), but I can hardly find gyms to put my Pokémon in to earn coins, and once I do they are kicked out strangely quickly... 46 coins to go to reach 200, so that I can buy a storage upgrade. I hope I get there soon, because looking up newly caught Pokémon to transfer them after every second catch is getting a little annoying, diplomatically said :pout:

The ultra friends bonus is sooo nice. Had my lucky egg popped so got 100,000 from it on community day. So good. Thanks for adding me everyone!
Awesome!!

 
Would anyone be bothered if I shared some codes with my mother? She plays even more than I do and has only 2 people on her list. She constantly bugs me to open gifts because she has too many and no one to send them to.

Her UN is suzzysmom
I don’t mind at all! :) My trainer code again is

My sister wants to make three new friends for the Celebi quest and wants them to be nice people, so she asked me if I'd post her trainer code here. Please request her as a friend! :)

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Also, I have a white Vulpix!!!!!! I was so happy to hatch her on Eevee community day. Thanks to the trainer (not sure who since it only gives location!) who gave me that egg and thanks everyone for the gifts so far :)

Wow, Bekuno, that is so cool that your mother also plays :) Do you sometimes play together? It must be fun to have someone who you can talk to about the game :)
I am happy to accept a friend request from her, here is my trainer code again:
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

I am happy to add your sister too, Haruna, but the code does not seem to work for me unfortunately (it states invalid trainer code, I tried multiple times to make sure I didn't mistype) :huh: Could you check with her?

As for the friends-features: guys, I wish trading was not a locally restricted thing... Mr. Mime is such an everyday sight here that I constantly just pass him and don't even bother to catch anymore... I would be happy to send a few over to those who are not residing in Europe and don't yet have him if that was an option!
Oh, I totally agree! I can see why Niantic had to limit trading (spoofers, boo) but it would be so fun to trade with you guys even though we don't live close by. I don't have a Mr. Mime -- that's one of the few I still need and I don't think I'll get to Europe anytime soon!

Speaking of trading, I traded a Pokemon with my sister last night and it turned into a lucky Pokemon! It was an Eevee and I traded her an Alolan Meowth that also turned lucky. I thought older Pokemon were supposed to be more likely to turn lucky, but we had caught/hatched both of those that day. *shrug* Anyway, I'm glad my first (and possibly only!) lucky is an Eevee. And I can't wait for Eevee community day!!!!!

Same! I'm still looking for Tauros and Kangaskhan!

Yep I'd love to trade Tauros for Mr. Mime and Kangaskhan. Tauros has been popping up by my apartment a lot lately..
I'm secretly wishing for global trading to become available at least on special occasions (e.g. events), how awesome that would be! I am keeping 3 extra Mr.Mimes in my storage to send away if this ever happens :)

Haven't posted in awhile. But it's good to see people still playing the game. I'm working on the Celebi quest and was hoping to if some of you would add me as a friend. I try and give out gifts regularly, unfortunately the pokestops by me can be a little stingy with gifts. Anyway my code is 4130 7832 2845.

Sure thing!

Did anyone take part in the Moltres event yesterday? My sister got the pink chicken :P (shiny version). I kinda want it and she said she might trade it to me. For us, the event started rough. We were at a mall with about four gyms. While we were battling the first Moltres with about 12 other players, the game glitched and the Moltres' health bar never went down. We all had to exit and go back in, although some players couldn't reenter because of network errors. The second time we tried, Moltres was beaten at first, but then the game stopped there and we had to wait until it finally brought us to the rewards and catch screen.

All the same, despite the glitches, it was a good day. The glitches ironed out and I was able to catch Moltres, and it was exciting seeing my sister get a shiny.

I have just sent out friend requests to both of you, Einhornbaby and Mori :)

I finally got back my location info, so I can now see where my hatched Alolan Pokémon are from - it's so funny to have these guys from all around the world :) I have just hatched a second Grimer yesterday, and I already have enough candies to evolve her into a technicolor Muk - I'm just collecting some more pokémon to evolve at once using a lucky egg. I am currently walking with one of my two Alolan Sandshrews (they are so beautiful! :heart: ), and I only need 3 candies to evolve one of them into a Sandslash.

My fiance and I have become so obsessed with Pokemon Go lately! I'd love to get some more friends :D I send gifts when I can, usually on the weekends when I have access to more than 3 Pokestops haha.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

I caught a shiny Magikarp on my fiance's phone today and that's probably my biggest accomplishment in the game. We've both been hunting Magikarps since I got a phone because he desperately wants a Gyarados. He's been so jealous of the couple trainers in our area who drops shiny ones in gyms.

Loona, do you have your Sandslash yet? And I’m so glad they put regionals in eggs, at least for a little while! That must have been so exciting, NinaMarie. I hope to get a Kangaskhan — fingers crossed!

Taxel, I sent you a friend request! My trainer name is PinkNinjaKitty.

Have you guys noticed rare spawns? The other day I saw a Lapras at a Pokestop near me. :shocked: I had to go catch it, of course! I’ve never seen them spawn here, not even for any of the events. And then, to cap it off, on the way home from my brothers house, I found another!!!! I’ve only ever seen 4 before, out of 1000s of Pokemon caught. Later I also found two Chanseys!! And there are some Hitmonchans and Hitmonlees running around. The spawns are mostly common but these have been unusual!
Title: Re: Pokemon Go -- who wants to be friends?
Post by: NinaMarie on September 16, 2018, 08:38:20 PM
Yes all kinds pokemon I never usually see have been popping up like crazy! Until this started happening I hadn't seen a Hitmonlee in the entire time I've played. Except for the regional pokemon and two legendary you could only get from raids my pokedex for Kanto is complete! It's really exciting!

Taxel and Einhornbaby I sent you friend requests.

I've notice the increase in rare spawns too. I've caught 2 Chansey recently. I've noticed Hitmonlee and Hitmonchan popping up much more frequently. The last time I saw them was during the fighting event. And my boyfriend and I found 2 each this weekend. Made him very happy as those are his 2 favorites and he had never caught them.

Congratulations on Mr. Mime NinaMarie!

Unfortunately I can’t get any raids that big as it’s just my husband and I and we have no one else to raid with :(

I was rather upset with my husband because he has been getting so many random shinies, wingull, geodude, magickarp. But we both got a shiny chickorita during the event and I have hatched all the regionals so I guess we are even.

Thats a shame NinaMarie.. Id raid with you if we were closer :)

Got a Deoxy raid on Thursday with a big bunch. Our city has four separate EX raids that day... Pretty good seeing as theres only a few hundred odd players and most of them aren't active.  I have noticed quite a few older players returning though... 4 in the last week!!!! I mean they've been out for well over 16 months but for some reason somethings got them hooked again :)

I still wish they made events when friends can trade internationally (and I still keep Mr. Mimes for if this ever happens) *sigh*

I'll share my silliness from yesterday in hope you might feel a little better: yesterday I was going through my Pokémon, checking which to keep, transfer or evolve, and I realised I have 2 Machokes and 99 Machop candies. I was keeping the two Machokes exactly to evolve one of them into a Machamp when I get enough candy, in hope that they evolve to be stronger than my current Machamp. So in I go to my items, use a rare candy to make my candy count 100, go back to my Pokémon, select the Machoke with the bigger CP, and, like a robot...
I push "Transfer", and then I select OK when I get the warning that this is something I cannot undo...
and when there is suddenly only one Machoke instead of the evolution animation, I realise this is not what I wanted to do :facepalm:

At least your hubs has a shiny Buneary now ;)

No, as far as I'm aware, trading is still available only when you're standing next to each other. I too think this is a missed opportunity, especially in today's world where there's little you cannot do with others online... I also agree that I wouldn't need this to be a regular thing, but it would be great if it was possible on dedicated special events at least...

How is everyone doing with the game recently? I've kept on playing but not very actively. The most recent events left me a bit neutral (and I've never even seen a silhouette of a Pikachu in a detective hat), so I'm starting to lose a little interest again. All the Snorlax lying around looked funny today though :) I caught one with CP over 2400, more than my "old" Snorlax I caught via some event/monthly challenge back in 2016, so I'm happy with that, but other than that I find this event a little lacking: I already had two Snorlax(es?), and the only extra feature is a special move? They could have given us a Snorlax in a sleeping hat :3 or at least a shiny - though I'm very unlucky with shinies, I think I've only ever caught 4 or 5 shiny Pokémon.

ETA: I also got massively unlucky today. I was playing on the bus, on the way to work today morning, and suddenly we passed a Lombre. I have never seen a Lombre in the wild before, and Lotad is so uncommon here that I only managed to evolve one Lotad so far, and I only have 8 candies, so very far from a Ludicolo, so I was eager to tap him - only to find that I reached the max capacity of my storage box. This of course happened between two stops, so the bus was speeding fast and there was no way I could transfer a Pokémon fast enough to create space (and I was late, so taking off, catching it and waiting for the next bus was also out of question). Needless to say, in just 5 seconds we also passed a Swablu - I'm still nowhere near close to evolving to Altaria, because Swablu is also not very common here, so every candy counts... I quickly freed up 3 or 4 places, but it was also not there anymore, and nothing else interesting showed up on the rest of the trip.

ETA2: when did the game start to censor the nicknames you can give to a Pokémon? I caught an Aipom with 666 CP, so I tried to rename her SatanAipom, but got an error stating "The name contains inappropriate text." :O About two or three years ago I had a Machop called Satanka ("ka" is a diminitive in Hungarian, so it roughly translates to "Little Satan"), for the same reason, and I could rename the guy without an issue (we renamed him with a friend while working together at an anime convention. He has never seen the game, and all he knew about Pokémon was probably Pikachu, so I was showing him all the Pokémon I had). Satanka was with me for years until one day I accidentally powered him up, only to realise that it actually took the fun away from him. I had another Machop with much higher CP, so the poor guy got transferred in the end.

I'm playing every day, pretty much, but casually and just focusing on what I want -- which would mainly be shiny Growlithe at this point. :lol: I have two research quests that give Growlithe as a reward, so I'm hoping one will be shiny.

You're right, a shiny Snorlax possibility would be fun. That's the most fun part of the game for me right now -- finding shinies -- but also the most frustrating, since it rarely happens. It is quite funny to see the Snorlax lying everywhere, lol.

Oh, and I'm also looking forward to evolving a Glaceon and Leafeon. I almost have enough coins saved up from gyms to buy the lure that evolves Glaceon.

I believe the only way to get the Pikachu was to take a picture with your camera, then he would show up. (once a day, I think).

I love all the sleeping snorlax. I will be sad when they are gone. ;_;*

I've played casually since day 1 of the game. So I still have fun with it. With the one exception -- not being able to find magikarp frustrates me. a lot. :( I live near water. I see all other fishies. Why not magikarp?

I'm lucky that theres a park that's not far where people play all the time. They put up the special lures yesterday and I was able to get leafeon and glaceon. *^_^*

Lucky! I hope you'll also get Magikarp soon!

Haruna, is there a specific tactic you can use for shinies, or are they just totally random? If it is the latter, I can imagine the frustration, as I guess you basically just have to catch every Pokémon you come across? I've only ever come across them a handful of times, and (IIRC) all of mine are from the wild (and none from events where shinies were said to appear more frequently...).

As I understand it, there are 1 out of the 450, say, Growlithes you'll meet in the wild that are shiny -- pretty bad odds. But I tap on any Growlithe because hope springs eternal. There are a few species who are more likely to be shiny if they come from research tasks, raids, or are hatched from eggs (like some baby Pokemon). I think Community Day rates for the featured Pokemon are 1 in 25, and I've had good luck with that usually, but I'm sorry you haven't. Sometimes the odds just work out really bad even when shiny rates are increased.

I've been negotiating a trade with a member on my local Discord server to get shiny Bulbasaur and shiny Dratini, so I'll be happy when we're Ultra Friends and that trade's completed. I have yet to find someone with a shiny Growlithe who needs what I have to trade, but you never know! Maybe I will find it in the wild.

I completely and utterly missed the slakoth event. Was sad I missed the opportunity for a pink sloth. It's not a common pokemon around here.

Continuing the subject of shinies I got super lucky with the research tasks reward and got a shiny Latias!

Wow, congrats on your shiny Latias, that's super cool!

I got lucky with the event this time - I was totally unaware, I opened the app quickly only to check if there are any pokéstops around (we were in an apartment on a holiday abroad, and we had a little rest time before we departed to an event that afternoon), and in the 5 minutes I had the app open I caught 3 Slakoths, 2 of which were shiny! :shocked: (who came up with this colour choice though? Poor things look like they were shaved nekkid :P ) Slakoth is totally uncommon here as well (the single one I had so far was hatched), so I was super happy :)

As I understand it, there are 1 out of the 450, say, Growlithes you'll meet in the wild that are shiny -- pretty bad odds. But I tap on any Growlithe because hope springs eternal. There are a few species who are more likely to be shiny if they come from research tasks, raids, or are hatched from eggs (like some baby Pokemon). I think Community Day rates for the featured Pokemon are 1 in 25, and I've had good luck with that usually, but I'm sorry you haven't.

Ah, I see. That really isn't a lot then... good luck with finding a shiny Growlithe! :) Are all Pokémon are available in shiny versions, or is this feature limited to certain species only? If they are, do you already have all the others, or is Growlithe just a special want?

Yay, I'm so happy for you! Shiny Slakoth does look pretty funky. Somehow I think the pink color is so random though that it's cute, lol.

Thank you! I was actually really happy this week because someone in my area has a shiny Growlithe they will trade me for a legacy move Gengar! Yay yay yay :)

Only certain species are available in shiny form right now; the infographic below is out of date but pretty accurate. (I forget who's left out of this chart -- probably some shiny legendaries, baby Pokemon, Pikachus with hats, and definitely the current shiny Alolans that came out this past Friday). Growlithe is just a special want for me :) I have some other shinies, mostly from Community Days; the non-Community-day one I'm proudest of is shiny Houndour. If it wasn't obvious I love fire-types and cat/dog-like Pokemon, lol.

Sorry for the late reaction, I added you too (aranyhaju here), we are already friends :)

That checklist is awesome Haruna, thank you for sharing! I've just Googled shinies, and there are a lot of similar lists going around, I don't know why I haven't thought of that these things exist XD I love love love shiny Omanyte and Dratini! Sadly the Dratini I got from the first step of the quest wasn't a shiny one. Thanks for the tip about keeping it! Now I'm wondering if it is absolutely necessary to evolve that Dratini for the quest to accept the evolution, or if it can be any Dratini - or Dragonair, for that matter. I have had two Dragonairs for a long time now, one was kept to be evolved further, and I would then wait with evolving one of those into a Dragonite until I'm at that step of the quest. Which I might not be able to complete anyway, because it involves trading and I literally don't know a single person who plays and is local. Another quest has also been parking in my quest list for months because of this same reason.

The checklist also reminded me how insanely few shinies I have... Squirtle, Magikarp, Hariyama (caught as a Makuhita), Ho-Oh, Poochyena, Aron, Swablu, Smoochum and Slakoth are the only ones I have in shiny form. I like Swablu the most, but Magikarp the goldfish is also very cute :)

I' m also happy to hear you are getting a shiny Growlithe - did the trade go through in the end?

Last week we spent a long weekend abroad, and holy boy, Novi Sad in Serbia is one big Slakoth nest! Remember how I said I felt lucky finding 3 Slakoths when we were abroad the last time, as my city just doesn't have them at all, and the single one I had before that was hatched? Here they were lying aroung everywhere! :O I wasn't playing a lot, but I still managed to catch enough to evolve one up until Slaking! :cool: I also found enough Skorupi to evolve one (this Pokémon is also totally uncommon here), so my weekend was totally successful Pokémon-wise. The only downside is that it's now slightly boring to be back home, there's hardly anything new coming up anymore here for me nowadays, so I'm starting to lose my interest...

That's tough that you don't have anyone to trade with :/ Again I wish that we could trade at a distance. I've found some trading partners through Discord; maybe you could find some close by people that way?

About the Dratini evolution chioce -- this might be important later on, but I'm not sure if you want to know more about the research task ahead of time, so I've put it in a spoiler. (I only learned this the other day when I got to this step XD):

Swablu is really cute as a shiny! You have some cool ones :) In about two weeks I'll be Ultra Friends with the two people (a second person also offered me a shiny Growlithe and I'll turn it into an Arcanine!) I'm trading with. It's so long to wait, lol.

Wow, that's a lot of Slakoth! I rarely see them, or Skorupi. I think I've only caught three Skorupi so far ^^; I have a lot of grass and bug Pokemon in my biome, and also a lot of cloudy weather that attracts normal and rock types.

I think the happiest thing that happened for me lately was catching a Groudon. I met up with some other trainers (from Discord) for a Groudon raid and they actually waited for me when there was only one minute left on the raid timer (how nice!). They laughed as I literally ran up to join them. We beat the Groudon and I caught it! This was after the discouragement of battling Kyogres and having them run away. I think Groudon is cool-looking, like a dragon ^.^

(not annoyed at you).
I would of liked to of known that in advance, as I would of waited to add more friends. There's probably no more to add from here...

And that I'm fairly sure people would of gone ahead and did the second evolution if they had enough and didn't know. (-_- I think my husband falls in this bucket maybe).

I think that there should be trading with people who have a high enough friend level. You can battle i think, so i don't see why you can't trade.

This made me check where my Smoochum (whom I nicknamed Shimmerchum :P ) has come from, as she's my only hatched shiny - she's from Tifton, Georgia, so whoever is there, thanks for the egg! :lovey:

Thanks for the additional quest info Haruna - it doesn't annoy me at all either, in fact it is useful, and it is what kept me away from evolving a Dragonair straight ahead :) As for the trading part, I did a quick search the other day and Discord has come up on a lot of places, so maybe I'll have to look into that after all. The thing is, as antisocial as it may sound, I don't really feel I would like to get to know locals through the game, I'd just like to get that trade done and that's it. I feel like some swinger only looking for a one-night stand :blush: It would be nice to know some locals to team up for raids, but since I don't really play around randomly (it's mostly on my way to work and back, or if I need to go somewhere far by public transport), I wouldn't be of much use for the "we'll go and team up against that raid boss tomorrow evening"-type of occasions. Oh, and I'm not on Facebook, never was, not interested, which would also make communication difficult.

My recent happy moments are tied, I cannot decide which one I'm happier about: I managed to catch yet another shiny: on my seventh day of research I encountered a shiny Latias! :shocked: :cool: but I might actually be happier for the Kyogre I caught on my previous seventh day, as I in general like water Pokémon a lot. I won't say I would have minded if he turned out to be shiny too, but with Kyogre I much prefer the original colour scheme.

I had this thought too, but I honestly cannot think of anyone... my husband hates it to the point that I just stopped playing if he's around, and my sister is totally not interested in games, never was. I could ask the husband's nephew who I know tried the game years ago, but I also know he hasn't been interested and quickly stopped, and we only meet when the family is together so the husband is there too.
Another thought I had was asking two colleagues who we used to play together with back in the beginning, long before the friend system was a thing, but I don't know if they still play, and one of them has moved away from our team a long time ago, and it would be a little awkward to ping him because of this :P
Oh well, some solution will come up eventually :)

My younger brother made it up over 20 years ago when I was signing up for a certain beanie baby site back in the days of dial up (he was obsessed with Star Wars and the user name I wanted to use wasn't available so he mushed them together).  Anyway...apparently I need to "make a friend" for some research.

Haruna, I'm so happy to hear you've finally got your shiny Growlithe! :) I haven't caught any more shinies since that.

I'm a little bit disappointed, as I was so looking forward to see at least a shiny Barboach or Carvanha during the current event, but despite catching a trillion of them, no shiny. I was really looking forward to this event (not because of the shinies, but because I love most water Pokémon), but after the first two days I got a bit less excited, even bored... Pokémon they've announced (and some of them I'd need) are showing up really scarcely... haven't seen a single Wartortle, Poliwhirl, Lapras, Quilfish,Mantine, Lotad, Feebas, Piplup, Buizel or Wooper, and I'm passing watery locations on a daily basis. I have seen a single Seaking, and have only caught a single Finneon. Wailmer is a bit more common, but I'm still not even close to 300 candies, let alone 400). Yesterday I barely turned the game on, and today only for the sake of evolving Caravanhas and Barboaches to complete a quest. Well, at least I won't be sad I'm missing two days, as I won't be able to play the game during the weekend, as we'll be away visiting family.

I haven't found any shinies, either :/ I haven't been playing the game much this past week because of phone issues, though. I've seen some water Pokemon, but I live in a grass and water Pokemon paradise so it isn't unusual for me. They've mostly been Carvanha and Barboach, and Wailmer. I was happy the day I found a Feebas, so I'll call that my rare catch for this event.

Yeah, sometimes either one of the two methods of logging into Pokemon Go (Google or a Pokemon Trainer Club, depending on what you signed up for) are not working because the respective servers are down. Google, at the very least, tends to be more reliable and the servers don't go down nearly as often as the PTC servers go down. It's frustrating, though.

So during the water event I managed to get a shiny. A charmander xD I have actually never encountered a shiny pokémon within the event it is promoted in :\ Really frustrating.

Caught a shiny Turtwig yesterday during the Community event and managed to catch enough Turtwigs (and use enough pinap berries) to evolve a Torterra to get the special attack.  :)

Just out of curiosity, how does everyone decide which pokemon to keep and which to send to the professor?  Is it based on attack power, how many stars it gets when your leader evaluates it or something else?

Awesome! I actually didn't know they were doing regional eggs  ^^; I'm out of the loop these days.

Just out of curiosity, how does everyone decide which pokemon to keep and which to send to the professor?  Is it based on attack power, how many stars it gets when your leader evaluates it or something else?
Typically people keep the Pokemon with most stars when the team leader evaluates it. Even Pokemon with the same number of stars can have slightly different defense, HP, and attack, though. I'm not an expert and don't battle all that much (especially not player vs. player), but I think in general if you're looking at a good defensive Pokemon -- say, Snorlax -- you'll want to keep the Snorlax with the highest HP stat, given that all else is equal. If you're looking at a great damage-per-second attack Pokemon, like Gengar, you'd want high attack stats. Does anyone else want to chime in with some advice?

Obviously, also you'll want to keep hard-to-find Pokemon (if you want a living dex or if you'll need to walk it to get candy to evolve it into another form).

Personally I also just keep the Pokemon I find cutest or the ones that have sentimental value for me (like my starter Charmander). I hope this helps a little :)
