Here’s my friend code anyway: 8725 3639 0945

Still a bit overwhelmed by the more technical stuff in the game. Have a working knowledge of IVs from playing on the DS back in college but I’m no expert. Are some Pokémon weather, seasonal or geography specific? I feel like I should be seeing more variation.

Took a run at a Machamp raid by myself and got it down to half HP. My best Pokémon is only at around 1800 CP so I thought that wasn’t a bad showing really. My problem is I don’t usually have time to wait around for people to join in on raids.

Friend request sent. (I'm Flynn Daff in game).

There are Regional Pokemon, and you just missed an event where some were available through 7km egg hatches so occasionally they can be caught outside of their home regions.

https://pokemongo.gamepress.gg/regional-pokemon-list#1

There are 'counter' pokemon that do more damage in raids. These are particular to an individual Pokemon (for example, Machamp is particularly weak against Alakazam and Espeon). Plenty of online guides for Raids detailing counters and weather boosts etc.

There's a lot of things to learn so it's best to pick it up as you go along.

Just accepted!

Most of my mons are too shit for much strategy yet so I’m mostly hitting gyms with raw power. Most of the ones i’ve caught so far have been stuff like Slugmas and Gulpins, but my Arcanine is looking decent after I caught a bunch of Growlithes. Caught a kickass Scyther yesterday but have fuck all candy for it.

Just leaving Magikarp as my companion for right now. Can’t beat a good Gyarados.

Just looked at that list there, I have Tauros, Sevipers, and Illumises for trade, if anyone needs em.

Sadly you can only trade if you're within 100m of the other player.

Well that’s annoying.

Oh, and if possible join your local raid chat. I didn't bother until last autumn, and consequently missed getting all the legendaries with actual uses, rather than the half arsed shite they've been flinging at us since. Also raid as much as you can at Ex gyms. If you get a pass and are able to get there for the Ex raid there should be a ton of other poindexters you can befriend and help beat the big bosses.

Saturday is a community day too, so 10 til 1 there will be a massively increased spawn of Totodiles, with a better chance of getting a shiny. Parks and town centres could well see lots of people wandering about hunched over their phones, so again, see if you can tag along, as these people will know what they're doing.

Indeed it is. I have a friend who lives within range but she's very casual and barely plays at the moment. God dammit.

And definitely get Calcy IV or the iPhone equivalent. I shudder to think how many good pokes I binned off over the first 18 months, and still cringe at some of the absolute rubbish I spent loads of candy and dust powering up.

Ehhh not sure I'm going to get that competitive with it. Probably just gonna be casually doing gyms and raids as a way to build the aul Pokedex, do I still need to fuck with all the IV stuff if so?

Not if you don't want to. It can be good for stuff like soloing raids etc though, like Tyranitar can now be soloed instead of just duoed. My friend and I got the new legendary duoed when it first came out, that was awesome.

Worth trying to evolve a good Totodile today before 2pm, it's the highest non-legendary water attacker with the community day move. So in other words Blast Cannon will put it just behind Kyogre, and it could be a while before Kyogre is in boxes or raids again.

So I needed to evolve it yesterday for it to be any good?

Fuck sake. What am I gonna do with my 53 Totodiles now.

(Hydro Cannon not blast cannon, to correct myself.)

Yes, you have an hour after community day ends, now. I only got one shiny as I didn’t go to Titanic, given I want to actively stay away from most of the community these days. But it was decent and I evolved the great IV ones I’d kept.

So yeah, it all comes around again eventually. I’d keep some Totodiles back, ideally the ones with best IVs, or the highest level ones - but your stuff will be low level anyway as you’re a noob, so yeah, don’t worry too much, just keep grinding. You need to evolve a magikarp anyway and Gyarados is still decentish DPS so that or a vaporeon will keep you going until Kyogre or hydro cannon Feraligator comes back again. BTW don’t put Gyarados in gyms.

Got a shiny with great IVs. Hail Satan.

Bah, I had to work.

Sort of enthused slightly about shiny Feebass - the Milotic looks very cool. But 20km to evolve when I could be getting candy for more useful stuff...

Chuffed that Kygore and Groudon are coming back.

1) I don't have them, as I wasn't in the local raid chat when they were about.

2) They're useful.

I still need a Groudon, yay. Got two maxed out Kyogres though, one a shiny although with only 13 attack, but still love it and took it to level 40. Wouldn't put money into more. Hopefully Groudon also gets a new move as he's still a bit lacking there.

Still waiting for Rayquaza to come back as a shiny, the king of DPS!

Collected a load of Pokemon today and yesterday. Some really cute ones as well. This bloke keeps wanting me to do some scientific mission for him but I'd rather just collect Pokemon for now. What is the next step for Pokemon novices when I get bored of it or fill up all my slots? This is still very new to me.
