  2. Driven, do you have any legacy Omastar with dual rock moves? They should be great for Moltres and Articuno too.

    I do, I actually get a lot of Omanytes here and he's come in handy a few times.

    Man your CP caps are high, what lvl are you now?

    Nice. I'm 31, almost 32, but I caught these guys with high CP as Geodudes during the adventure week event, and evolved them into high-CP Golem; I just had to switch earthquake on them with TMs. I think I plan on keeping most of my mon at level 30-31, wherever the point is where you only get 1/2 the CP increase per level up, just to make more efficient use of stardust, which is pretty scarce in the new gym reward system. I think it makes sense to have a team of 6 ~L30 mon for each tier 3-5 Raid boss than just a few maxed out mon. Raid bosses may also change sometime, so I want to have a diverse army of 30s, not just a few maxed mon.

  5. I could use a few more TTar, so I have a TTar counter team marked:
    IMG_3940.jpg
    a Mew/Mewtwo (and also Alakazam by extension) team that I need to upgrade:
    IMG_3941.jpg
    and a bird counter team:
    IMG_3942.jpg
    I want to switch Omastar's ground moves to water to make him more viable against Moltres/Charizard, so they also serve as good Charizard counters.

    I've heard speculation that the raid bosses will change; Kanto mid-evolution starters replacing Johto for Tier 2, and Johto stage-three starters replacing Kanto for Tier 4. Potentially Dragonite replacing TTar (making Lapras, Cloyster, Jynx, etc) very viable again, etc.

  6. Is anyone going to chicago for go fest?

  7. Fest was a complete dumpster fire apparently. Huge connection/server/glitch issues. Everyone that went is getting refunds, $100 in pokecoins, and lugia.

    Lugia and articuno have also started popping up as raid bosses all over the world. Lugia is around 42k cp, articuno 37k

    Double xp, candy, dust; half buddy distance and increased spawns all are on from now til Monday 5p PST.

    Yeah. One issue is what about people who bought tickets off other people? Is the original seller going to get the refund and the Lugia and not the person who bought the ticket from the original buyer and went to Chicago? For everyone who didn't spend the time/money going to the event, it looks like the rest of the world got a good deal with all the bonuses.

    Nah whoever was there will be good. There was a qr code to scan as you went in that links to your account.

    Yeah everyone else def got the better deal. I can't imagine how pissed I'd be if I had spent all that money to fly, hotel, maybe rental car all just to get screwed. That's hundreds of $ wasted and what's most dangerous for niantic is they just screwed the people who were surely the major money spenders in the game. This could kill their revenue and ruin them.

    That makes sense. I've heard someone suggest that they'd be better off doing a "concert tour" style event(s) next time to try to actually have a functional event; something where having multiple locations/times will hopefully reduce the amount of players/data use at one time, and also give people more opportunities to attend an event near them, so no dishing out plane and/or hotel money in the hopes of having a working event. I'm not sure what to think haha.

    Also, apparently you can catch multiple of each legendary. I suppose it does help the odds of having enough people at raids (so it's not just one and done on Day 1 then good luck to anyone else trying to beat it), and really Mewtwo and to a lesser degree (because of moves) Ho-Oh are the only real OP mon; I think Lugia is only around TTar CP, and even then based more on defense than attack, meaning there are still better raid options than just 6 Lugia spamming for most raids. A team of 6 Mewtwo would just destroy the meta though. Multiple Lugia isn't anything new though:

  11. One interesting thing I heard is you won't be able to put legendaries in gyms. Thought that was odd

    It sort of makes sense I guess. Even though you can have multiple and use them to attack/raid, seeing them in every gym could get old and further ruin their "special" status. The thing is, only Mewtwo and Ho-Oh have crazy OP stats, and Ho-Oh does have a double weakness to rock. I think only Mewtwo would be an OP defender, and even then, I think he'll still be faster to take down than Blissey. It's not like taking down gyms is anything really difficult ATM anyway. Most legendaries are at DNite/TTar CP range, if that. I think that a lot of people assume that legendary mon are OP or inherently the strongest in the game, but that's not always the case.

    Lugia should be great for Machamp raids though; SE damage and double resistance to fighting moves. His attack isn't that high at all though, so I don't know if he's "fast" enough to solo a Machamp raid?

    Sorry to hear that. Hopefully you catch another one. I'd be happy with 1-2 of each really (I don't have any yet though). The bonus rewards (candy, stardust, etc) is nice though, and should help me fill up my dex faster.

    The strange thing is that the candy bonus for catching mons isn't actually doubled; it's just +3 candy, so using a Pinap looks like this:

    -Stage 1: (3+3)*2 = 12 candy

    -Stage 2: (5+3)*2 = 16 candy (not 20 candy if it was truly double)

    -Stage 3: (10+3)*2 = 26 candy (not 40 candy if it was truly double)

    You do get the 2 candy from transferring them instead of one as well.

    That plus the shorter buddy distance should help me complete the last few evolutions I need in my dex.

    I finally caught a Blissey, just sitting in class the other day. Not particularly high CP or IV, but it does fill the dex just the same. I'm very close to evolving Flaafy into Ampharos (I need 2 candy from walking and another 0.1km), and then Magnemite into Magneton (need 5 candy). Then it's just Snubbull (I need 40 more candy) and I'll have evolved everything I can, with only Porygon and Tyrogue left to evolve (and catch; I still don't have either of them). I also still haven't caught Wobbofet or Unknown.

    Jana just got a Blissey and a Lavitar with over 50 candy back to back, an hour after completing her Dragonite.

    Beating me to everything!
    Her 10K luck trumps the hell out of mine

    At least TTar can be caught from raids, as I don't have enough candy to evolve one yet, but I got one from a raid. I just hatched a Mantine from a 10k haha. Before that I got a Mareep though, so it's not all bad. GPS drift got me that last 0.1km for Ampharos:

  19. I'm 0-6 catching ttar at raids and now 0-1 each lugia and articuno. My raid luck is atrocious (which is bs as I'm typically one of the top damage ppl due to my level and squad) ha

    Yeah I've still never caught a ttar, either. Still walking eggs and hoping lol.

    MP You mentioned you were missing Porygon? Man I've started deleting them lol I have one evolved and 103 candy with 2 standing ready for the upgrade chip; I never seem to find the damn upgrade items. Well, I have 4 steel coats but nothing else lol

    No Porygon here, but I think I have multiple upgrades waiting for it. I haven't seen any legendary raids near me, and there are several gyms I've been checking. There have hardly been any raids at all today. I've heard that Articuno may not be around for long, and other birds may be coming soon, so I'd like to catch one today, but that means one needs to show up nearby.

  22. 1/1 on Lugia, but 0/2 on Articuno; I can't help but wonder if it's because I only have the silver ice medal, as every little bonus in catch rate helps.

    Congrats on the TTar; he probably has more use in the meta than either of the birds ATM. Bite and Stone Edge or Crunch is ideal.
