So, at the bequest of my nephew, I've had a really Pokemon-heavy weekend.

First, though, the public announcement part: Kangistan is roaming in the wild in several European cities until the 21st August. London is one of those cities, but the place where my nephew lives is not ...

Just on the way to the station on Saturday morning and home again tonight, though, I caught three Unown's and three Kangistans (two out in Zone 3) so - they seem to be reasonably populous, if people are thinking of daytrips in response to the news.

My nephew was really keen that, in addition to generally playing Pokemon *all day* yesterday, that we should tackle as many legendary raids as possible. As I've never managed to coordinate raiding with others at all, I was glad of the opportunity. Of course, we defeated 5 legendaries and I managed to catch *none* of them, but at least I've seen them in action, and I had a chance at them, which is more than I could say before, and nephew caught 3 of them, but not the Lugio he wanted most of all. Kudos to the Pokemon playing population of Nephew's town for being *super* welcoming and supportive, inclusive, and friendly, and making our day better in many dimensions.

I kind of wish there was some in-game mechanic for coordinating meet-ups, though. I don't really know where to start here in London (not least because "London" isn't a useful geographic area for this kind of thing, being altogether too big to be reasonable), and having some way of ID-ing "other Pokemon Go players within N distance of you right now" would be *really freaking useful*, and is clearly technically feasible as so many other apps are based on doing exactly that.

Egg Change

Eggs have changed again – multiple species added (includes Gen II starters)!

I'm quite pleased. So happy that Mantines and Pinecos are in 5 km eggs now. It was awfully frustrating to walk a 10 km egg and get a freakin' Mantine. Also really glad Swinubs are in 5 kms and Chinchous in 10 kms. I got my first Chinchou today! And I need Swinubs for ice medals and candy for the eventual Mamoswine evolution.

I'm at level 28 now!

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.

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!

Look alive! The third nest migration is here. But this nest migration is a little different from the past two...

• In addition to nests changing, new nests have appeared.

• Unfortunately, some nests have also disappeared.

• Higher evolutions can now be found at nests! Previously, only base evolutions could be found at nests. So now, you might find Wigglytuff at a Jigglypuff nest, for example.

• There are also new spawning locations. My neighborhood added 4-5!

• But...some spawning locations have also vanished.

• Spawning times have also changed. If you're used to mon spawning at certain times, you might need to readjust. I know I'm having to figure out the new schedule in my neighborhood!

What are things looking like around you?

So, some of you might have seen discussions about using incense in areas with zero potential spawn points, with the result of random pokemon appearing, including pokemon that you might not normally see. If you haven't seen that, take a look here: PokemonGo Hub post and Reddit post on required distances.

tl;dr: you need to be 1km from a potential spawn point in order for random spawn effect with incense. Do give the reddit post a look; I found it really interesting.

Has anyone here tried it out? How did it go?

I usually don't use my incense immediately, so I had three saved up to use for testing. It went pretty well. :D

So I started with Squirtle (... as always), hatched a Charmander in fairly short order then found a place Charmanders like hanging out near work, and last week hatched a Pikachu from a 2km egg.

... Bulbasaur is my second-favourite starter Pokemon and is missing from that list, about which I was very frustrated -- except I'm visiting a friend this week and SAW MY FIRST BULBASAUR just outside their house.

... whereupon I fed it a Razz Berry and threw an Ultra Ball at it and it ran away.

... the second one that appeared in the same spot did a similar thing.

... by the time the third one appeared in the same spot I decided I was probably camped on top of a Bulbasaur spawn point, and so far I have caught four and had another two run away from me, and firmly intend to spend the rest of the week saving up. :D
