Itís probably because you canít delete gifts from your bag so people with like 3 friends would complain that their bag was full of gifts they couldnít get rid of. Iím always amazed at niantics ability to design features with glaring design flaws which could be so easily resolved with systems already in other parts of the game, like being able to set favourite friends or use sorting

How much money did they make from this game again? Because it feels like the bare minimum is being reinvested
That can't be it because gifts don't take up bag space.

Thanks to this thread I now have a full page of eggs from various corners of the US and Canada, and one from Sweden. From Arizona to Newfoundland. Cool!

Also look for the PoGo Discords in your area. Let your local try-hards drown you in gifts.

So my app is not displaying capture location for any pokemon anymore it just says the caught date

Noticed it while trying to trade all the mons I caught during my business trip last week, for the sweet 1mil km trade badge (lol that's ridiculous). When confirming the trade, on my screen neither poke has a location, on my wife's both do.
What gently caress.

Also niantics work around for friend progress is "do more friend stuff". We completed two raids, a full gym sweep and 20 trades today with no progress made... gently caress off lol

You can only do one thing per day per friend to increase your friendship level.
So if you send each other gifts, only one gift will increase your friendship level.

That sometimes randomly happens and can be fixed by restarting the app. Or perhaps twice. Or thrice.

Walked over to a Regice raid when I saw a fairly large group of people in a circle. When I got closer it was clear they were already battling so I said to my girlfriend ďOh well looks like weíre too lateĒ and I guess they heard me so they all immediately quit out of it and waited for us to join so we could participate.

People can be nice sometimes.

I'm thinking Niantic is going to heavily nerf gifts soon, unfortunately, because I'm running around with an insane amount of Ultra Balls and Max Potions without even trying.

I think it's just Rattata and Exeggutor that appear in the wild now, they're not in the egg pool (which is Vulpix, Grimer, Meowth, and Sandshrew apparently). Of course I'm 3 for 3 on getting Meowth so far.

Also the updating for the friend progress seems wonky, some random goons I have two days on but my friend that I traded gifts with as he stood right next to me is still just one day.

Yeah that was all in an effort to get it to trigger for the day. I haven't been able to progress this particular friendship in the last 3 days

Do traded pokemon retain their names?


Also I've noticed all the alolan rattata I've caught so far are female. When alolan exeggutor was released I caught over a dozen of them and only one was male. Is there an uneven gender ratio or is it just a coincidence?

So thanks to the magic spreadsheet I've got over 60 names on my friends list. I managed to dish out about 40 gifts yesterday, but I normally don't play that much, so apologies in advance to everyone I disappoint in the coming days.

PS- thanks to everyone that's given me gifts, I really appreciate it.

Only being able to carry 5 gifts at a time is going to limit almost everyone, so don't feel bad.

I try to dish them out as soon as I get them. The other problem is that my memory is crap and I can't see how many gifts have been given to or received from each friend, so I'm going to lose track of where they should be going. In the grand scheme of things, everything should even out I suppose.

Alternatively they might not, since it's not like you can buy most of the items the gifts can give, but you can buy bag space and incubators!
