Good morning, fellow trainers!
First off, we have an update from Niantic addressing recent changes to the game
-- more specifically, the removal of the three-step display and the limiting of access by third-party sites.
Now, onto the main point of this post! So by its nature, Pokémon Go is a game where you discover how things work in the wild, so to speak. You learn by doing. You learn by interacting with other players. (Which is one of the reasons this community exists!) I thought it'd be nice to collect various resources in one place that people could refer to. Here are some to get us started:
• Pokémon Go server status:
The servers have drastically improved since the first two weeks of the game's launch but for those times where you're having problems logging in, this site has you covered.
• Evolution calculator:
You can generally get an idea of your pokémon's CP potential by looking at the arc on the detail page but if you really
need to know the exact number it'll have post-evolution, here's the calculator of your dreams.
• Get the eeveelution of your choice:
This is one of the easter eggs of the game. Left alone, eevee evolves into one of three forms: vaporeon, flareon, and jolteon. It's random. Except for when it isn't. There are many guides explaining how you control it but I included the link shared by st_aurafina
in one of last week's posts. Please note: This is guaranteed to work the first time you use it for each of the eeveelutions. The jury is out on whether you can get it to work again. Some people say you can. Some people say you can't. I personally have not been able to. No matter what I do, I get nothing but jolteons. Except for when it's super super hot. Then I get flareons.
• Pokémon rarity chart:
Some people have asked for a pokémon rarity chart. This is one of the later ones put together by the folks on Reddit. Understand, though, that rarity is a subjective term in PokeGo and your geographical location influences what you see more often.
So what are some of your favorite resources? Let's share with the community!
