My 5 year old walks too slow.  Like c'mon bro, these things aren't gonna catch themselves and I don't have all ####### day.  And then he's like "Daddy can I catch this one please?"  Uh, you mean

So I am sitting in my garage this afternoon, drinking some brew, and I see my neighbor walking by slowly, looking at his phone. I yelled out: "Pokemon?"  He giggles and says: "YES!!!!"  I wa

Haven't played since the first 2 months. Have I missed much? Worth picking back up?

It has really added a lot of features. I am biased because I enjoy it, but I think it is definitely worth your time.

Yes. I reinstalled it about three weeks ago and am having a blast. It’s no longer just Pidgies and those stupid green worms everywhere.

madshot,

Do you need the friend accept for Coffee4LifeYo currently?  The majority of my 22 friends are FBGs with the exception of a handful of Georgetown, DC folks I've encountered around the office.  I don't know how many board members are left and would like to hold for when we've got another friend requirement in task 6.

Thanks.

PS, I'm going to have to work these locals to get my 3 trades in Task 5.

PPS,  Everyone holding off on claiming rewards for each task and popping a Lucky Egg to close out the task?  I started with Task 2 and evolved a bunch of new Gen 4 & 5 I've been saving to my Pokedex clearing about 80k xp. 670k to Level 39.

 

 

I’m good, a bunch of fbgs took my invite. We can friend up when we are on that quest.

So what are the leagues? I just got to a field research that says battle another person in the great league....

The league determines which Pokemon you can use when you battle another trainer. The Great League is the lowest of the 3 leagues, so you can use any of your Pokemon with CP of 1500 or lower when you battle against another trainer. The higher leagues allow you to use Pokemon with higher CP in the battle.

So doing the dratini quest you apparently get party hat pikachu. The wife just got him when I was telling her to do the same. He didn’t pop up for me earlier today. :(

Wait - the end award for this quest is a stupid party Pikachu?  I’ve got like 20 of the stupid event ones already.

I was looking on Ebay for different things and I stumbled on Pokemon Go. The amount of money people for some of these Pokemon is just crazy.  I really want a Kangaskhan, and there is no way I will ever travel to get one, but I just don't see risking my account to buy one. The cost for some of the Shiny ones is off the chain.  I got lucky my neighbor just came back from Europe and got me a Mr. Mime.

How much are the ones with a filled out Pokédex?  I assume that or one with a lot of legendaries are the most expensive.  Level 40 accounts don’t seem to be that rare any more.

The shark move is to go for party hat pichu.  Pichus with hats worth more in trades.

(Hint: 7km and 2km hatches)

I don't think you can long distance trade....if we could I have Corsolas and Heracrosses to deal

So someone in Paris can’t trade with someone in the US? Can they do the trade when arrive back in the US?

Probably a dumb question. How do I know which Pokémon are worth keeping? To upgrade, or just dump?

I basically only keep “Wonders” and then use Pokie Genie (downloadable app) to figure out the IV

Basically just hit appraisal and keep anything strong to amazing. Then use Poke Gene (you have to download) to further realize if you want to keep. 

Still don't have a Groudon--daughter and I tried a raid today with two lower level players---wow, that sucked. 

Next week the armored Mewtwo come out in raids. Already working on setting up groups to go after this.

My 16 year old drives he and his little brother to the Mall of America twice this week. That place must have a dozen gyms and 30 pokestops. And a crapload of people (many skilled Japanese tourists) who just go around slaughtering in the raids.

Kind of jealous - I have access to lots of stops and gyms but I never see groups out - not sure I'm ready seek out a cornhole with strangers to play Pokemon

So, I want the Pokemon with 3 stars?

Correct. You can also search your list of pokemon to find any perfect IV pokemon by entering 4* on the search line. Doing that search will produce a list of all pokemon you have that have perfect IV.

Of all the ones I have, I have TWO with perfect IV's.  One Glaceon and one Bonsly.  I've got more shiney's than 4*.  I do wonder how many I transferred using the old appraisal that may have been 4* under the new system...

I have to go out of my way to hit a stop on a given day.  I drive by 1 after dropping the kids off at daycare, and to get my streak (and bonus evolution item) every 7 days, I'll pull into a parking spot to spin there...otherwise, NO stops anywhere I am for an extended period.  None at the office, None at home.  I also NEVER EVER EVER have pokemon show up at my house.  I can burn an incense and maybe get 1.  I'm one of those fools who has to buy pokeballs sometimes.  If we stay at a hotel or something that has a stop, my wife gets pissed at me constantly playing.

No 4* :bag: 

I have 6:

Mantine

Whiscash

Onix

Lapras

Vaporeon

Jynx

 

I have always been a big IV watcher and would scan anything that I caught that appraised as amazing.   I have 640 guys  in my Dex and every one of them has a number and letter next to their name. :nerd:

With the addition of Shadow Pokemons in this latest update, I am going to have to expand my storage, but I haven't seen one yet. 

Last weekend the Entei raid was insane here. There were 2500-3000 people gathered downtown around the museum playing. I caught 2 shiny ones. The Mudkip event is this weekend. We have a very active Pokemon community here.

does that iv thing even matter?? i mean they nerfed gyms.....maybe for high level raid parties?? 

I think most of the craziest Pokemon players (and money spenders) have at least some form of OCD, this is part of it.

Or think of them like PSA 10's for baseball card collectors.

"Gotta catch'em all!"

I'm out of balls because my ####### backpack is always full. 

I pretty much dump non-max potions, regular revives, nanab berries, razz berries, and great balls to make room for the better stuff.

I'm up to 2000 item storage so not as much of a problem anymore, just need to decide what to do with these 250 rare candies.

You gotta get rid of the stuff you don't use.  I almost never find gyms...so I don't carry much as far as potions.  I also trash most of my pineapples.  

With that said, we were in NYC this weekend and I gave my 5 year old my phone to use a good bit.  I told him NOT to use anything but the red balls - now I'm 100% out of red balls and have TONS of blue.  Oy.

I'm still a pretty avid player. Lots of players around me still and we have a good whatsapp group for raiding.

I've got 75 4*, almost 200 gold gyms, well over 100k pokestops and 100k pm caught.  Yeah - I play too much. 

Got my shiny alolan raichu today! One more shiny off the 'to-do' list.

Shiny Rayquazza starts!

Got mine yesterday along with three regular ones. 

Also finished out all my normal Ralts evolves and did shiny evolves of it as well.

The shadow Pokemon thing is challenging. I am one of those collectors who wants one of everything. Having a Rattata. shiny Rattata, shadow Rattata, purified Rattata , Alolan Rattata and shiny Alolan Rattata then rinse and repeat with the Raticate really puts a strain on my Pokemon storage. 

The other thing about the shadow battles is the toll it takes on your revives and potions. I don't notice it as much because I am surrounded by stops at my job, but my daughter (who is still in the low 30's) is always out of revives and potions.. Some of those battles are tough even when you have a high CP guy in there.

I realIzed I have a 1* shiny Pokémon. What do I do with that? He’s pretty lame TBH

For now I’m keeping any shinys I get. Even if it’s a Pidgey or whatever.

So I got my first 1,000+ Pokemon, but it doesn't appraise as a 3*. Worth keeping?

My Pokedex is constantly evolving--especially now with the streamlined appraisal system. If I catch something that is 3 stars, I will then scan it with Pokegenie and get the exact number on it. If it is better than the one I have, I just transfer that other one out. I just always keep striving to get the closest to perfect IV's  on every one of them I can. Yeah, I know I need a life. 

As far as shinys, I keep all of them. It is cost prohibitive to trade them, but you never know if you run into someone who really wants it. 

My daughter gets me watching a lot of the YouTube Pokemon people like Mystic7 and Trader Tips and those guys have 10 million stardust.. How the heck do you get that much?
