Pokémon GO

Recommended Posts

Tracker is shit. My neighborhood used to spawn loads of pokemon and I was able to see them around me. Now I am totally in the dark. I have no idea if a Blastoise is next door, or if it's just a pidgey. I have 1 pokestop near me, but it's by a major road so nothing spawns on it. This has effectively killed the game for me. I used to be able to open the app periodically throughout my day, see if there was anything on the nearby, then go hunt it down. Now I turn on the app, and there is nothing on the nearby, but of course if I do start walking, a bunch of stuff suddenly appears without showing up on the nearby! Problem is I can't just get up and walk around my neighborhood 10-15 times a day hoping that the time I chose to walk just happened to spawn a pokemon I need. It's just silly. How could they think this was decent? 

 

Plus I am now having to restart the app 5-6 times before it even works.

Some Gen 2 pokemon have been confirmed. I am glad they are doing this slowly. I still have to catch some pokemon to finish my pokedex, and just throwing 100+ new pokemon into the game would probably make it near impossible for me to finish.

Also, there's a festive Pikachu about.

Appears not, just the festive Pikachu and two new 'mon available from 5km eggs (at least Pichu hatched from a 5km for me this morning).

 

Edit.  Appears more new mon have been released, spoilerised as I can't find any official word on their website.

Spoiler

Had a Cleffa hatch from a 2km egg this morning.

I'm pretty much in the same boat. I'm a few candies away from both Machamp and Muk which I'll hopefully do in the next week or two on the buddy system.

After that, I only need Hitmonchan, but I'm not sure I can be bothered to play on the off chance I see or hatch one or hatch the gen 2 babies. I'll have a break until gen 2 I think.

I still just play when i'm walking the dogs. I'm close to an Alakazam which will be my 140th unique pokemon. I've only hatched a Smoochem out of the new baby Pokemon so far.

 

They had a special over the new year where starter pokemon were spawning everywhere, and I got a blastoise, so i'm getting closer to having everything they've released from Gen 1.

 

They really need to do something about the legendary birds and mewtwo

Currently sat on 147 caught / 150 seen - was lucky over Christmas when a journey to deepest darkest Pembrokeshire had a Hitmonlee pop up on the roadside (the only one I've seen so far of those).  A 10km egg popped out a bunch of Kabuto candies on Friday to round off my collection of gen-1 (minus the region specifics and legendaries).

Had 4 of the new ones hatch out so far.  Though it's sorta got to the point that there isn't much else left for me to do unti the next event / update rolls around.

You guys are doing way better than me.  Still need Vileplume, Machamp, Victreebel, Golem, Electrode, Exeggcutor, Chansey, Porygon and Snorlax of the "original" lot and Cleffa, Pichu, Elekid and Igglybuff.

Why does my 'seen' section show a lot of Pokémon that I've never seen?  Only started happening semi recently.

I think it includes ones in gyms that you've walked past as well now.

It seems there's going to be evolution stones for the gen 2 pokemon that evolve from some of the gen 1s...if that makes any sense.

Basically, I've been saving up candies for nothing by the sounds of it.

This would make a pretty bad series of 24 though.

Went for a big walk in Sutton Park today so popped this on for the first time in absolutely ages.

Caught a shit load of pokemon, most of which I've never even heard of so I'm assuming they've added more to the game?

Yep, good timing, only two days ago.
