    I'd prefer to keep the candies as they are and give us a bunch of stardust for reaching those milestones instead.

    Ah. I see.

    Well it's not worth it. One can only walk so much. Especially when dealing with Pokemon that take HUNDREDS of candies to evolve. It would take YEARS to evolve them. Seriously O_O. Especially in areas that don't spawn such Pokemon that often. The game is just awfully unbalanced.

    That's why I'd even mention it. As a way of trying to level it out.

    Like with Magikarp for example. It takes 400 Magikarp candies to evolve. That's who knows how many kms. And if any trainers live outside of a spawning zone for them, they're screwed.

    Stardust isn't worth much to me as I don't catch a ton. Since I can only walk so much in a day and what not, candies are more valuable to me.

    But as a compromise, it's too bad that we couldn't use stardust to evolve Pokemon instead if trying to collect candies ends up being too much of a hassle.

    While it sucks, that's kind of the point of the game. Niantic's vision was to make it so that the game changes depending on where you play. I can't say I can agree with it, but it is what the way the game developers intended it to work, so a "fix" can't really be expected.

    And trust me, I know your pain. I walked my Larvitar 300 km to get a Tyranitar.

    Join Ash and Pikachu as they travel to the Tenno Region, a region known for its advanced space program. Along their way towards the Tenno League and becoming a Pokémon Master they'll encounter new Pokémon, new enemies, such as the evil Team Planetary, and, of course, a certain trio of Team Rocket members, along with friends new and old. It's an out-of-this-world adventure!

    And it's a pointless one. It makes the game a lot less fun to play.

    Dang. That's insane. I'm lucky if I walk 2000 steps (1.524km) a day. 20 laps. Yesterday was an exception. Walked 5000 steps (3.81km) -- 50 laps. It's great to get exercise, but with limited wifi areas, it's a lot less in regards to varying environments. A lot of the areas rely on me using cellular data, and I end up mainly using that to get more Pokeballs, items and eggs for the most part. And to add to that, not having unlimited data.

    No way to go off of other wifi, minus one Pokestop which has access to some.

    While attending college, I tend to walk 3-5 kms a day just going to and from class, and I was walking that thing for months. And honestly, I'm just thankful to have the buddy system in the first place.

    You're both lucky and fortunate. There aren't that many people in my area that play the game that often these days. So I'm doing raids on my own sadly.

    Oberhausen event is sick. But there are conflicting reports on whether the "zone" letters are included in the event. I might be going to Amstelveen, so I'm a bit bummed out by "only" getting 4 new letters, leaving me at 9, while 10 is the silver medal..
    Answer to all the bad things in the world: Give up on trying to make everything better. Hence, accepting it for what it is. YOLO! <- Click the link and daw.. -.-

    "If I had my way in DP, Ash would've hit the league with: Pikachu, Ambipom (his to keep), Torterra (Grass/Starter), Lucario (Ace), Chingling (Cute), Bidoof (Water-type) and Heatran (Fire-type)."


        Spoiler:- GenVII Starter names speculation:


    The second line is meant to be sarcastic.. Though there was a random trainer with a Heatran at the Sinnoh League..

    Just hatched my 10km egg. Got a Skarmory from it. Hoping to try to get some more items and what not today. Need to stock back up.

    Our area just got its first Mewtwo raid yesterday. Unfortunately, I hadn't raided at that place ever, so I didn't get a pass invite. I went anyway, since my friend was going to be there and I wanted to see a huge raid. Around 50-60 people showed up. Mewtwo actually went down pretty easily; everybody beat it with over a minute to spare. Most people caught it, making everyone believe that its catch rate was spiked up since this was only a beta-test. We don't know when and where the next one will be.

    So does anyone have any idea what's up with this new shirt? I'm a bit confused as to what it's supposed to be.

    A new t-shirt for you to wear, obviously. They are promoting Global Goals. Hard to explain, but these three sources should clear it up. The latter two sources are also in within the first source.

    Sources: 1 | 2 | 3

    Ran into a bit of a freezing issue while playing Go via Wifi today. Reported it to Niantic. Went out and was able to raid battle a Weezing. Lost but it was still fun. Got to get some items, a couple of eggs as well.

    That's a bit...strange. It seems to be a good cause, but what is putting a random t-shirt and a measly 17 Pokestops in one country going to do? Maybe Pokestops around the world or some sort of in-game event, but the only global item is the t-shirt, and what's that going to do?

    I finally hatched a Porygon today! The only Kanto Pokemon I need now, excluding region-exclusives and Mewtwo, are Charizard and Dragonite.

    Huh, I was having the same problem earlier today until about 12:30 PST. Figured it was just me, as the normal signs of an outage weren't occurring.

    I got back from catching my fourth Raikou! And I caught it on my last ball too!

    Sometimes I have a problem signing in too, and I notice that its mostly users with Trainer Club Accounts, as I have one too :3 When this happens (more often than it should) I either restart my phone, delete the cache, or both and that sometimes fixes the problem

    It is quite common that there are outages for trainers using the Trainer Club for their log in, but this was completely different. Normally, if it's a Trainer Club issue, the log-in screen almost immediately tell you that the log-in has failed, but today it was different and would just sit on the loading screen with the minimum load for long periods of time. Something different was going on, at least for me.

    I took advantage of a Lucky Egg to mass evolve my Pokemon, but the cell service cut out here and there, so I couldn't make the most of it count. But in the meantime, I managed to evolve Porygon and Togepi, so that got me some quadruple XP.

    EDIT: So after the equinox event, here are the results. I did manage to hatch, and evolve, my first Porygon, and I evolved my Togepi (though that's unrelated, since I didn't manage to hatch any new ones). Around 75% of the eggs I got were 5km eggs, which contained nothing I needed, so thanks for that (they were mostly Mankeys). For some reason, I found a lot of 10km eggs as well. Most of them hatched into Porygons, but one hatched into my first Miltank, and one hatched into a Dratini, which I really needed. As I predicted on another thread, most of the 2km eggs I hatched were common Pokemon like Oddish, though one DID hatch into a Mareep. I managed to catch Entei on my first attempt after a month of failing to catch Raikou, and that bumped me up to level 30. I wish Smoochum was still in the 5km club, since I still need one and I got so many 5km eggs during the event. I wonder what the Halloween event will entail? I had to buy coins just to get enough for the Super Incubators (on the last day, at that). Thank goodness they, too, have 3 uses each.

    Been doing decently lately. Minus any server side issues. Seeing a lot of errors and sometimes my character doesn't want to move. In the middle of hatching a pair of 10km eggs and I caught a Bayleef and some other Pokemon today. Got some items as well via a Pokestop.
    Looking forward to the new X Files episodes coming out in 2018! Thank you David, Gillian, Mitch, Glen and the rest of the cast and crew of 1013 for taking time to make them .

    We have suicune here at the moment but haven't caught it yet. Have got 3 entei's from last month - one of which has a 96%IV. Hopefully I can have a go at suicune tonight.
    In my area we have a raiders whatsapp group which means we can tackle raids all the time with a good amount of people. I'm really lucky!
