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.

Even if they have bad IV? I have a 1400cp Snorlax with Headbutt/Bodyslam but his IV is only like 60%

In the case of Snorlax I'd say yes, 60% is plenty enough for one with Body Slam to be a headache for anyone. Unless you feel lucky you'll come across more Snorlax in your life, I'd go for it.

I have a Zen Headbutt / Body Slam Snorlax with 0 IV and I still use it in gyms regularly. IV doesn't matter that much.

I haven't seen any Larvitar around here in the Netherlands, but also no Tyranitar in gyms. I guess people haven't been spoofing too badly. Though I did run into another gym cheater today...

Realistically? If we're talking about legitimately collecting enough Larvitar for candies, no. Right now, anyway. In a week it'd be possible if someone was running around with a scanner radar and didn't have a job or school and lived in an area that spawned them.

But random spawn is also possible, as people have seen fully evolved things pop up in the wild.

With lucky 10ks ya I'd say it is. I'm like 30/100 to getting my Tyranitar. Though it's more likely spoofing in all honesty.

I think it's a spoofer. Same dude has 2900plus dragonites and had a togetic in a gym two days after babies came out.

So just visited a gym and they rebalanced everything again? Hard to be into grinding back up again when all my high IV good move set Pokémon will apparently just be dumpstered again soon :/ seems like a lovely way to try and even things out.

I guess I'll just get Pokémon and ignore gyms.

I also got an evolve item out of my seven day bonus spin today.

Are new snorlaxes still spawning with body slam?

FYI togatec is (possibly?) bugged and has a 1% base catch rate which does not change with berries or better pokeballs so just throw standard red balls at it no matter what. You'll most likely not catch it but you can (ie: with a critical catch).

Don't be like me and waste 40 ultras + razz's on it because it was the 4th or 5th gen2 you saw spawn and didn't know this little bit of info at that point.

One more evo item from a 7-day spin here. It's probably a guaranteed drop then.

In other news, I just noticed that I accidentally downloaded the APK through LTE. Twice Does anyone know if PoGO will work with a 32 kbit/s hard limit?

But the Pinap Berries and evolved catch candy bonuses might actually offset that. I'm throwing Pinap Berries at all the low level Pidgeys I can find, reserving a handful for rare and desirable spawns.

What level are you guys?

Since hitting 30+ it seems a bit pointless to powerlevel, given that wild spawns cap at 30, level requirements ramp up a ton, and it's prohibitively expensive in stardust to power up many pokemon to lvl 40 anyways.

e: Also, I wish there was some way to sort by evo line. It's sort of annoying to not be able to see all my eveelutions in one place :/

Except gen 1 is #'s 1-151 and Umbreon/Espeon are above that, so at least for me it shows them as a lot farther down the list, after eg Dragonite. Is this not how it shows up for others? Maybe I'm missing smth still

I found a decent way to get into a gym. My wife and I are on opposite teams (I'm red and she's blue). So if we come across whatever gym, assuming not yellow, we just have the opposite color attack it, bring down its level by one, then the other person can at least more easily level the gym back up to what it was.

Whoops. Forgot about the fact that the gen 2 stuff won't line up properly. I can't think of any way to accomplish it without just naming them all yourself and the sorting by name, which is not a great solution.

If people are completing the entire gen 2 lineup, does that mean there are no regionals? I thought I read somewhere that there were new ones. Is that weird one that looks like a steering wheel part of the gen 2 library also?

Heracross is the only new regional. He can only be found south of a certain long/lat (Mexico, South Texas and Florida)

In Gen 2 it was called "New Pokedex Mode", and became the "National Dex" in later gens. I hope it's something they add.
