    No Articuno here. Oh well, it's likely it'll be back sometime. Perhaps as early as after Zapdos (if raids cycle, just probably less common than they are now), of after the dogs (if they do the same thing they're doing with the birds), or as late as next year (since they want to attract new players, they'll have to give new people a chance to get legendaries at some time I'd think), and who knows when trading will be here to get one that way.

    Quite a few people locally seem to have not gotten an Articuno, which actually makes them a bit special IMO, even if I didn't get one. It makes the Lugia I have seem special, and gives me more motivation to catch Moltres and Zapdos I suppose.

    On the bright side, Moltres should be much easier to beat than Articuno, with some people being able to beat it with 2 people (very difficult), and 3 people seeming to be able to be done consistently for higher level players with good counters (4-5 should be plenty if people know what they're doing).

  6. So i've been hearing some rumors of a method to seriously up the catch rate of legendaries...

    first throw - nanaberry (must hit with ball and if it escapes, proceed)
    second throw - golden raz (again, must hit/escape/proceed if nec)
    third throw - nanaberry (this is the one that should be the almost guaranteed catch)

    using this people have seen almost 100% catches. The caveat is that you MUST hit the bird with each consecutive throw and at least have it spin/escape. Any misses or even throws that get attacked (bounce off it) will mess up the sequence.

    Also, theres two tricks other tricks:
    1) to attempt to change the cp of the bird you're catching (can go up, but also down), get to the bonus challenge/capture phase, then completely exit the game (close it out so you have to restart). Go back into the gym upon reload and it will put you back to the challenge, but the cp will be different. Only issue is that it can go down as well so its a bit of a gamble.
    2) if you can get your phone to error or network error and kick you out of the catch portion, when you go back in you will have more balls than you had before as well as changed cp

    Oddly I've seen different tricks used here

    Watched a guy go 3/3 using Pinapps lol. His trick was based on the throw release time once the target circle was about to reset to full size

    He had guaranteed great or excellent throws but if that way ensures a catch I'll be trying thanks man

    yeah i've seen the great/ex throw trick where you hold til its close, then wait for an attack, then throw before its over so its exactly where you left it. still ahs to be an accurate throw though so not even that is guaranteed

    man thats a bummer. i have over 800 piled up and evolved probably 2-3 including a shiny. Saving enough so that I can evolve another shiny if I catch one with good iv's (haven't caught one since the first event when they came out when i caught 2)

    yeah i heard about that and was super peeved... not that I've done even a single raid above lv3 due to being alone in the middle of nowhere (I literally held a gym, by myself, for 4 days straight without ever feeding) but I want actual rare items, not stop items... i throw most of my regular and super potions away anyhow

    Also, not sure I'll even have a chance to get moltres, zapdos, or lugia now... and forget mewtwo ha

    Just got my first gym to go Gold, though it doesn't list any benefits... I assumed I'd get better items from spinning or something but I can't tell!

    Achieved that while going for the 1000 hours defending medal, pretty easy if you can hold a few gyms at a time. I held down a minimum of 5 at a time until I got it, so about 120+ hours added daily.

    Anyone else get bored enough to go for medals? Some of these are going to take a good while

    Getting boring at times but I'm competitive so I make it work with some healthy local competition. Plus this is the only nerdy hobby that also has me out walking/running so I'm trying to stick with it

    I try for most of them. The few Gold I'm missing are pikachu, tiny rats, unown (obv), Magikarp, dragon, fighting, steel and raids (1000 wtf?!)

    I want Entei just for his crazy CP cap, and Ho-Oh, but Lugia was my fave gen 2 legendary

    Mewtwo > Lugia > Zapdos

    My faves, and past gen 2 I never played
