It doesn't seem like they're following the Gameboy rule of only catching Ladyba in the morning and Hoothoot at night.

The sense of time was one of the coolest things when I first played Silver, not that it really matters.

Did some more hunting tonight. Got a load of commons. Was able to evolve a Steelix, metal coat +50 candy. Didn't have the Scyther candy for it, or I would have gotten Scizor because he is better

How common are evo items? I probably hit 50+ stops today and got 1 metal coat and nothing else.

Good. I'm loving tired of every gym being Vape, Vape, Vape, Vape, then a couple of Dragonite or Gyarados on top.

I always said you should get more experience from catching evolved forms since they're harder to catch and give you no extra incentive to do it. This is a good middle ground.

That isn't a result of them being the best defenders, they just have high CP and are easy to get.

I've seen a few gyms that were gyarados all the way down. Until they revamp the whole system that's just the way it will be, although we'll probably see a lot of the new mons placed just for the novelty.

Looks like Espeon is the new Jolteon except Psychic moves are a dime a dozen so it's not even that useful. Umbreon should be good though, gen 1 was really missing a good Dark moveset.

Umbeon has a pretty low cp but a pretty good health pool and defense. Hopefully it will be a solution for the snorlax infestation.

Has anyone evolved an umbreon or espeon without using the name trick?

Is PGNexus crapping out on anyone else too? I hope it's just everything getting slammed that's causing it to wig out, but it's not letting me refresh what Pokemon I have.

I'm also withholding powering anything up/evolving until a few days in when there's more data about what's even worth powering up. Blissey having high CP is nice though because my fear was that they would be just low enough CP to end up at the bottom of gyms when low level teammates or idiots put them in there and make the gym impossible to train up.

Yeah, mine lost about 200 cp.

Also I feel like they changed gym mechanics again? It feels much slower with the intention of forcing you to be more deliberate with your moves but its still janky as gently caress. I wish they would just fully commit to making it turn based instead of this garbage

Base stats are basically set at this point. They're calculated directly from the base stats from the main series. Lapras was the only exception but they adjusted it to match the formula of every other pokemon when gen 2 dropped.

https://thesilphroad.com/species-stats

Assuming this chart is correct, (it hasn't updated lapras) blissey has a higher max CP than vaporeon.

yeah it's cool that of the top 10 or so gym defenders by CP I have no hope of getting half of them and just evolving Eevee after Eevee in the hopes of vaporeons (of which I've had two total compared to 15 of the other two)

edit:

Tyranitar, Dragonite, Snorlax, Rhydon, Gyrados, Blissey (that will SUCK), Vaporeon, Donphan, Espeon, Lapras

of that list it took me til last week to get my first ever gyrados who has crap CP, snorlax don't have enough candy to juice up, same with rhydon, nowhere near a Dragonite, only seem a Lapras once that ran.

good times

This might be valid if Gyms were equal opportunity. Right now its "Live in an area with good gym pokemon spawns and a healthy gym scene where no one team dominates" or "get lucky that your team has lockdown the area and you managed to sneak a few mons in there"

I live in the middle of nowhere, and for the first time ever, I'm pulling in Pokémon without effort whatsoever. I've caught 11 new mons in 30 minutes just by walking around in my backyard and a few more by walking a few yards down the street. Finally the game is playable without driving into town (at least for the moment).

Is Lapras on that list not adjusted for the nerf? Because my Exeggutors and Arcanine currently sit higher on CP than my Lapras which is like 86% IVs and I've walked loads of kilometers to keep it powered all the way up. I highly doubt it's the 10th most powerful one anymore and I'm really disappointed by this because Lapras is a personal fave despite CP tiers. Like, thanks for not nerfing all the ill-gotten Snorlaxes and Dragonites that GPS spoofers target for the most.
