Iíve caught about a dozen of each and havenít gotten a shiny. I also caught like 200 meditites and Malthusian and didnít get poo poo so Iím not expecting a lot.

Itís nice to get the dex and badge completions though.

I think we each clicked on about 60-80 or so for our shines. Another player in our group got shiny Aerodactyl this evening

Loving Anorith as a raid boss. I have caught about a dozen of them in this event and walked the only one I ever found months ago, using candy to evolve him. But no females. Damnit.

Walking Surskit because I have only ever seen ONE of those fuckers.

Didn't see a single Corsola in Kauai, but got enough Charmanders to evolve two Charizards. No shinies though.

Why would you walk anything but a super-rare like Mewtwo or Bacon though.

That's weird, I've caught at least 30 Anoriths even before the event... Are they regional?

Walking legendaries is awful because they take 20km for one candy and the event would only put them down at 5km, which equals the longest distance to walk the best non-legendary Pokemon for candy without an event's shortened distance bonus. Let's say the average distance tracked by people who work/go to school is 2km a day. That's like playing 10 days for just 1 candy. This is why rare candies are used for legendaries.

And it seems like Anorith is this gen's Drowzee. They're super common in some parts of a country that people get sick of seeing them, while other parts of the country have 95% of their people not even having them as a dex entry.

I tried walking a legendary and gave up since a major chunk of these quests are walking based. Hello Tyranitar for a while, since I'll need a bit of spare candy to power things up after blowing at least 650 on evolutions during community day.

Annoyingly I evolved/levelled two tyrannitar just before the community day was announced, so now I need to walk one quick to get enough candy to evolve another for the special move.

Shinies that have been added previously; are they all still available or did they get taken away again? Fatwhale, for example?

Tried a 1* raid yesterday. Shuckle. Not sure what was up with it, but it timed out long before I got it down to 50 %. He didn't do much damage to me, but drat if he didn't have some insane defense shenanigans. Haven't noticed that when I've fought him in gyms, though. Managed to take him down when I got my father and sister to join me.

Shuckle is three star, and he's the only three star that's impossible to solo due to his ridiculously high defense.

It redirects to a 500 error, and I'm on the latest version of iOS so it isn't that.

Chansey is the best choice unless you have multiple good blisseys and chanseys.

Ralts is very useful both offense and defense and Larvitar if you want to take full benefit from the next community day.

Otherwise whatever you feel like, really. If you're still missing dex entries Beldum and Bagon are good choices.

That's amazing! I hope you evolved it so it got blast burn.

Finished an evolve quest and got a 100 Aerodactyl this morning. No shiny yet but we've only done a handful of raids and quests. I hope the rate is boosted, otherwise there's not much of a chance.
