they aren't, just expect 1 per 100 pokestops. and then it's random which of the 5 you get.

Hm, some interesting changes now. Some legacy mons must be quite valuable now! Snorlax with Body Slam became even more of a killer defender now that Body Slam has been sped up, but it seems like it won't be possible to get a new one!

I've spun like 150-200 stops by now and didn't get any special items...

I leveled to 32, and also I found that I have a Up-Grade item. Is that only for porygon? Of which I have two and 20 candy? Cool. Don't want to walk this turd but now I gotta.

I only saw one chansey over the valentines event. I got 6 candy out of it. I was walking this miserable gently caress around dreaming of the blissey that would shut down all comers and just as I get to 1 candy my eggs started hatching. I hatched two chanseys in a row. That'll do, PoG. That'll do.

Has anyone not timed out when battling alone?

It's not impossible. I slayed a 2600 some cp one tonight and I still had 10 seconds to go. And that's also with wasting time changing out 2 Pokemon because I went into it without healing back up. If you have good 130 power moves, it should be doable. And if you need to know I was using Arcanine/Exeggutor/Vaporeon that were all at around half health, powered up all the way so like 2600/2500/2800. Fire Blast, Psychic (1 bar move now?), Hydro Pump.

Not sure how I'd do against a 3000 cp one though.

I just spent 1 day in San Francisco walking around clicking my pogo plus and incubating and have 48 gen 2 pokedex entries. incidentally, I've identified pineco, the pinecone pokémon, as the point they ran out of gen 2 ideas.

Urban vs suburbs v rural still seems kind of hosed. Playing here seems like a whole different experience. There's literally 7 stops I can reach from my hotel room (including the 3 Starbucks on this block...)

Found one with 3, then double dragonite. Training those must be horrible though.

E: also, spun ~400 stops, got one special item. Feels like a bad ratio...

I've used BGM to automatically rename and check IV's of everything I catch. It doesn't seem too well supported anymore though, last update was after the baby pokemons came out, and the only fix they did was remove them so it wouldn't crash. So I don't have too high hopes for them updating for Gen 2. Are there any other similar programs I can use to quickly sort through my pokemons?

Qwilfish is worthless beyond the dex entry. Depending on where you are, if fire types are rare, go with the hounds. Teddyursa seems to be a pretty goddamn common spawn in my area, at least. YMMV.

Look at OpenStreetMap.

Then check the amount of pokestops, and how close you are to water and what kind of body of water it is. Other than that, it's the OSM borders.

TheSilphRoad had a spreadsheet of which types of 'mons whichever use corresponds to.

Snorlax with Zen Headbutt and Body Slam is pretty much the ne plus ultra of gym defenders now. I was trying to prestige against one earlier, and it managed to get off four (!) Body Slams in a row.

If you have one, max it out ASAP because it's an absolute beast of a defender.
