Is Pokemon Go still a thing? Part 2

Another lame community day tomorrow, Magikarp. At least Gyarados is one of the best water pokemons, and is good for raids etc. But it's still yet another water pokemon. I wish Comnunity Day featured a rare pokemon, like Electabuzz, Deino or Gible. But no. We got Magikarp😂

by Anonymousreply 708/07/2020

This community day was a success. I got 1200 magikarp candies so I was able to evolve three into Gyarados. I think I got 7 or 8 shinies. I deleted one by a mistake. I didn't even play that much, so I'm actually happy with that. I would probably had gotten more if I had played longer. I should have waited to evolve them though because Aqua Tail is apparently not the best moveset, which is the community day exclusive.

Hey Pokies!

DCI Jane Tennison here, and I've been in a dreadful mood as I was LITERALLY ON THE CUSP of getting to Level 8 on the Battle challenge and had worked out my Great League dream team of Bastioden, Azumarill and Moltres. But then they changed to Ultra League and my mojo has gone!

Been invited to 3 legendary raids by random friends. Got a shiny Raykwaza from Japan and today got a Deoxys from the Phillipines. I nearly got a Deoxys last week but none of my 14 balls worked. Today I had 8 balls and caught it on the first catch. Making sure I use my gym coins to keep a stock of remote battle passes.

And I got an Unown from a gym yesterday, Hurrah!

Had a lovely surprise this morning when I started opening presents for the restore potions and got a rare candy in each one. The Pokemon Festival day last month had issues so they put on 3 hours of special events

My Mewtoo from the challenge in April/May. I've now maxed it up to 4059cp 178hp.

I've not touched the shadow Mewtoo - is it worth powering that up?

Yes it’s worth investing in shadow Mewtwo but do not purify it. Shadow Pokémon have a 20% increase to attack stat so they’re super powerful. Confusion and Psystrike are the best moves.

You should never purify a legendary Pokémon.

I now have 3 Heatran. Only one ran away. 3 out of 4.... guess I should be happy about that. One with perfect IV too. That one raid today was nerve-wrecking. We were only 4 people. 3 should be enough, but I have a feeling the others I played with were lower-level players with mediocre pokemons. I was in a raid yesterday, we were 3 but we still won it and had like 100 seconds left. Today we only had 30 seconds left and I had a ton of fainted pokemon so I had to rejoin the battle. But anyways, we won and I caught Heatran. So I'm happy.

Mega evolutions are said to be coming. Starting with 4 Pokemon only(Beedrill,Venusaur,Charizard and Blastoise). Mega Beedrill is supposedly will have to be earned through special research and the other 3 megas Charizard,Blastoise and Venusaur will be through special mega raids. Lv. 2 and 4 raids are supposed to be getting removed. You will only be able to have 1 pokemon mega evolve at a time. If you try to mega evolve a second pokemon the first mega pokemon will go back to its normal form. Also you have earn that pokemon's specific mega energy to mega evolve it. Mega pokemon will provide an additional attack bonus to all other pokemon in a raid group provided that the other pokemon are using the same type of attacks as the mega pokemon.

by Anonymousreply 4508/26/2020

So I did the first bits of the Mega research task and can now power up my Beedrill to a mega Beedrill for FOUR HOURS.

But what's the point?

I use a remote raid pass to fight for a Blastoise but there were only 6 and it soon became apparent there was no chance of doing it in the timescale.

by Anonymousreply 4608/28/2020

I think there is supposed to be a bonus the faster you take down a mega evolved pokemon in a special mega raid. Supposedly you can't place a mega pokemon in a gym nor can you earn one through a raid only their mega energy and I'm not sure but I believe you also can't use them in PvP.

Hey, IcedDirtyChai here. Thanks to everyone who accepted my invites a month or two ago, excited that a few of us are about to get those 4 hearts and 100k XP soon. I'm in NYC, and contrary to appearances, I am not an Orthodox Jew. But all the Pokestops and gyms in my 'hood are synagogues and yeshivas, and they are plentiful!

Not crazy about this mega raid thing, but did catch a shiny Charizard from one. Magikarp community day was great, I now have an army of 3-star Gyrados to compliment my army of 3-star Dragonites from dragon week. I started playing in 2016 but stopped because I didn't want to spend $ on upgrading my Pokemon storage (did go on a fun adventure for Mr. Mimes in Paris in 2018 though), but decided to give it another go when the city shut down and I wasn't leaving my neighborhood. Now I'm dropping coins on remote raid passes left and right.

I did enough mega raids to earn enough mega energy to evolve my 4 star Charizard but for four hours? What is the point? With Torchic popping up more often, I can finally max out my 4 star Blaziken at least.
