They're doing all right with the update schedule. If they keep this up, this puts Gen 4 somewhere in mid-2018, maybe just after the 2nd anniversary.

I can't wait to get nothing but water pokémon most of the year, and then some ice pokémon the days it actually snows instead of either raining or beeing dry and -15 to -20 in December, Jan, Feb, March, and April.

Perhaps it's in the nature of television. Just waves in space.


Weather's a great way to deal with the issue of Pokémon spawning less frequently as they add more gens, I'm surprised they actually did them but also excited because I live somewhere where there are different seasons and it's not always raining.

Having sunny, clear skies for 99% of the year and rain for 4 days in Northern California will rock for this.

Will fire pokes spawn more often when the state is burning from forest fires?

It snows like once a year in Seattle so I guess I'll have to brave the elements on that very specific day if I want ice Pokémon.

I used to think that weather was already a factor in-game on release. Turns out that was a false assumption, because I was passing through a biome that spawned lots of Electric-types when there just happened to be a severe thunderstorm nearby.

I'm down.

I caught my first unown today. I've never been able to get to them when they've spawned, but this one was a 10 minute drive away and I had just gotten off work. I caught it, and now I just need mewtwo! I tried to catch it on my boyfriend's account (I have his account on my phone from a time when his phone was broken and now keep it on to catch rare spawns when I can or to help out if a second raid group needs it). It fled on the first ball, golden razzed/ultra balled/curve throw, and it was a green circle. I'm so bummed .

But yay me I guess

That sounds like a soft ban to me, any chance he was still logged in and playing? If an account moves too far too fast, you won't be able to catch anything afaik. It'll happen occasionally if I've got the go-tcha going and then it's just deleting red balls since everything runs.

I had the same thought actually, but he definitely wasnt playing at all, probably for the entire day because he's a sane person. I wouldn't be surprised if soft bans were a thing to deter alts and the like maybe? In hindsight I wish I had tried to catch it on my (level 4)alt account but that would have been a poo poo data point anyways

god damnit what a broken loving game

there's a gym i can usually reach from work and i decide to flip it this morning. whittle it down, knock out 2 of the defenders, other 4 get max healed. keep going, and suddenly a new blissey and rhydon are in there. spend 40 minutes of winning two battles against each, then 6 max berries hitting so i can start over. finally give up and knock out the first guy three times in hopes he's the one with infinite berries, and now i'm on the 10 minute lockout error. what a joke

i won something like 80 battles to no effect

I am wondering if they have some kind of higher alert on for people logging in at the site of Unown spawns. That could be a dumb idea, I genuinely don't know programming or GPS or any of that poo poo. But people seem to have more short term soft ban issues when going for Unown.

One guy who plays here tried to get it for six different freaking accounts (his main, his two alts, three friends). Caught it for the first two, then it ran from the last four. I assume that's some kind of softban, because they only have a 5% or 10% flee rate.

On the other hand, I gave him a ride to an Unown, and he caught it on at least 4 accounts, no problem.

And softbans due to not giving enough travel time usually manifest as "the game data cannot be loaded" errors, I think. Could be wrong.

Looks like the charge move in the new version is activated by a new button instead of long pressing the battle screen. This is an improvement I think?
