Ducked out of work for an hour to catch just enough for a Draco Dragonite.

e: I've never gotten a single shiny ever in this game and have been playing since launch. I'm filthy casual though.

More EX passes. Hopefully they did something to focus on people who have had none, or just one, but hahahahaha I doubt it

I guess this is me? I really only play a couple hours a week at my local park to make up steps I didn't get at work and I got a notification for an EX raid? What's that about? I normally play solo and face drag 1-2 star raids (although last week I stumbled onto a group doing a 5 star and I didn't catch whatever critter we were fighting at the end which was a super rad thing to happen) and annoy the piss out of some yellow team dude at a church I work near who multi accounts like a tool bag by blowing up his beloved poo poo up every single day. He gets irl mad at me quite often. Anyways, do I just show up and make nice with whoever else is there? idgi

how to do an ex raid

1) know nothing about the game
2) stand next to some person wearing the same color shirt as ur player
3) say hi
4) say hi to other people and appear slightly normal
5) mash buttons idk what dodge means
6) catch a mewtwo with the first ball
7) leave immediately for taco bell because idk who these people are especially that one guy threatening to kill someone if his critter isn't perfect jfc

Yours still had the pokeball, mine straight up disappeared. I wish I could have screenshotted the catch circle, because it became this weird oblong blob. It was great.

I love that this bug manifests so differently. I had a half formed pokeball, no monster and some weird poo poo on the side? idk



It's a pretty regular bug on quests that result in a sighting. You can just hit back once then activate reward again and it's usually fine

having it on a month rotation artificially lengthens the buy in period for participating in the story/research missions and it protects the very sizeable casual player base that is absolutely not represented by this thread. not exactly sure why that's surprising to literally anyone

What's the rush? If you're at that stage of the quest you're already past the point where you have to hurry so you can use the Gastly spawns from the gen1 event. It's not like you have to hurry before a new quest line comes out or that Mew is any good as a fighter, it's basically just a fancy dex entry.

99% of my play time is at night and it's taken me 2 weeks to get three raids done. it's a weird situation

Catch 3 mareep field research was a pretty excellent idea, I wasn't expecting event field research so well done on that Niantic.

yeah this was really clever

only got 2 shiny and both in the 60-70% range. still fun though, the egg distance combined with the current double candy event was the real winner here. got enough back to back hatches on beldum's to poo poo out a 3k Metagross

hundreds of people at my local park and its always super fun to see kids running around at mach 17 screaming about shiny stuff

Sadly this is the last outside event for us in Phoenix. Time to hit the mall next month! Sucks most of the stops are outside, but at least there's several gyms and one stop inside to lure up.

Yeah I got roasted through 30spf and 90 minutes. Which mall down here is good for distance and stops indoors?

Yeah, until the 17th. Virtually all of gen1 can be caught in the wild minus the crazy rare stuff like Chancy, Snorlax, Lapras, Aerodactyl, and Dratini. In general it seems like Niantic removed the biome rules.

Both the fiance and I caught a 2400 cp Snorlax at a gas station last night. I caught a second one a week ago in addition to a straight up Blissy at my work parking lot. They are spawning, just rarely.
