Today was supposed to be MY poke day, the best day I'd have to walk walk walk those eggs for the extra xp. But HEATWAVE!

How is the event going for everyone?

So the first anniversary of PokeGo is coming up fast and Niantic is celebrating in multiple ways.
  • The Solstice Event kicks off on June 13. More fire and ice pokémon (nice that they acknowledge both hemispheres!), XP bonuses, and discounted lucky eggs.

  • A forthcoming update that focuses on collaborative group gameplay. In preparation for this change, gyms will temporarily be disabled. (Sounds like they're changing the gym mechanic!!)

  • Various PokeGo events in Chicago, Yokohama, and across Europe.

The official announcement is here. I'll try my best to keep the community updated as these events go live, but if any of you see it before me, feel free to let your fellow trainers know!

 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!
