 So excited! We finally found Pokemon Go Pluses in stock at a reasonable price! (AU$70 at Ozgameshop for any other Ausies interested). I can't wait, I might finally collect enough candies for a Gyrados. Question is, how noticeable will it be at work? I'm assuming I can shove it in my pocket...

I'd love to hear about your experiences! How did you take advantage of the four times as fast? What rock types did you catch? Did the recent nest migration benefit you?

I walked to evolve to: Jynx, Croconaw, Quilava, Meganium, Marowak, Kingler, Ninetails, and Wartortle.

My rock type catches to evolutions: Golem, Steelix, Rhydon, Omastar, Kabutops, Shuckle, and Magcargo.

I was able to evolve to Alakazam, thanks to my local nest.

And I caught a Yanma!

Recent egg hatches: Gligar! And enough Drowzee for a Hypno.

Adventure Week starts later today!

So get out there, stock up on pokeballs, catch some cute little monsters, and then come back here and report back with what you're seeing.

GO!

ETA: A nest migration also just occurred so if there was a time to get out & explore, that time is now!

A second Pokestop just appeared in my town! I cannot express how thrilling this is - I frequently run out of balls, the other Pokestop is in an awkward position in the middle of a park that's mostly made of mud in winter, and the next town is 50km away.

Even better, it's in the post office, right next to my workplace. Full bag, here I come!

Hello trainers!

Looks like we'll be getting another in-game event, starting on May 18 @ 1PM PDT: Adventure Week!

The details:
  • more items from pokestop spins

  • 50% off pokeballs in the store

  • buddies will earn candy 4x as fast!

  • increase in Rock-type pokemon encounters -- including possibly, maybe Aerodactyl!!!

The official announcement here.


Your mod still doesn't have an aerodactyl. That's why she's so excited.

1. Nests have migrated once again! Check out your local parks to see what species are now roaming there.

2. There will be a short-term in-game event this weekend: Worldwide Bloom! From the afternoon of May 5 until May 8, there will be an influx of grass pokémon.

Hopefully, the weather is kind to you this weekend and you can enjoy these events!

So I got my 7 day streak again today, and I still haven't been able to snag the Evolution Item I need. I've got 3 Sun Stones, 3 King's Rocks and 2 Up-Grades, but not enough candy to evolve the corresponding Pokemons. Yet I have a Scyther, all ready to go, and no Metal Coat!

Good day, trainers!

Your mod apologizes for the tardiness of this post. She had a car situation to deal with and just didn't get to it yesterday.

From now until 1PM PDT on April 20, Niantic is hosting an in-game Eggstravaganza. The highlights:
  • a greater variety of pokémon can be hatched from 2km eggs

  • more candy is earned with egg hatches

  • double XP

  • Lucky Eggs are half-price in the store -- meaning that you can earn quadruple XP if you strategize!

Read the official announcement here.

What about you all? Any news from your neck of the woods? What do you think about the event? How has PokeGo been going for you lately?

Lots of stuff happening this week!
  • Nests have migrated again. Visit your local nests & see what's out there. Note: The Silph Road has deactivated nest reports for water 'mon during the Water Festival.

  • Shiny 'mon are now live in-game! So far, it's just Magikarp (gold) and Gyarados (red). Don't know what shiny 'mon are? Here's an FAQ.

  • I'm unclear as to whether this is only for the duration of the Water Festival but a magikarp hat has been added to the avatar customization options.

I'll be putting up a free-for-all thread this weekend!

As [personal profile] soc_puppet pointed out in the comments of yesterday's post, PokeGo is hosting an in-game water festival until March 29 1PM PDT.

Which means you'll have increased chances of catching water pokemon at this time. And maybe even a lapras!

Official announcement here.

A new game update is currently rolling out to the app stores. Here's the official announcement.

The patch notes from Niantic say that the 7-day First PokeStop streak bonus now guarantees an Evolution item. Which is fab because your mod hasn't had much luck in getting any of those!

New Update

Hello trainers!

A new update is rolling out. The Silph Road's data mine didn't reveal any new significant changes (the patch notes were the infamous "Minor text fixes"), so perhaps this is an optimization release.

Hello trainers!

Hope your week has been going well and you've been enjoying the influx of new pokemon. While your mod is sad she didn't see any Chansey during the last event, she is laughing at how cute Gen 2 is.

Here are a couple bits that may be of interest:

• Gen 2 brings the addition of two new eeveelutions: espeon and umbreon. As with jolteon, vaporeon, and flareon, you can use the rename trick to get the eeveelution of your choice. In this case, Sakura and Tamao will get you espeon and umbreon, respectively. Remember, the rename trick is guaranteed to work only once, so choose your eevee-to-be-evolved wisely. However, some determined trainers did some research and found another way to get espeon and umbreon without using the rename trick (and thus allowing you to do it multiple times). (read more but also keep this in mind)

• We're getting another in-game event! To celebrate Pokemon Day on February 27, Pikachu will be getting a fancy hat from the afternoon of February 26 until the afternoon of March 6. (more info)

How has your week in PokeGo been going, trainers? Any news from your neck of the woods?

Looks like the servers have calmed down, so get out there this weekend and catch some Gen 2 pokémon or take over some gyms to earn coins to buy new avatar customizations!

• Last week, John Hanke offered a deeper look at Niantic's plans for PokeGo. (Check it out!)

• Pokémon storage upgrades are 50% off until Feb 28th. If you recently bought an upgrade to prepare for the coming of Gen 2, try sending a support ticket. Some trainers have reported getting a refund for the difference. (source)

• There are a lot of changes and refinements in the latest update beyond the launch of Gen 2. From CP rebalancing to moveset changes, it can be overwhelming. Luckily, lists are being compiled on the two major PokeGo subreddits: The Silph Road's list & Pokemon Go's list.

• If you're wondering about some of the interface changes, trainers have been uploading screenshots: new evolution items & new UI features

Happy hunting!
