I did not level up yet 😀 I am still walking my Larvitar.
But I got a Yanma from an egg ❤
There is a new update with some neat features:
Pokémon will now show how they were obtained – either egg or caught. if caught it shows even which ball was used.
Only weird thing they added an icon on eggs too *lol*
They also seemed to have fixed some issues regarding gyms and raids but can’t confirm those yet.
I had some bad luck this morning too -_- I was beating the gym at the train station when some other dude went and took the last one out. I was blocked from adding my monster for over 5 minutes (although being on the same team) as I was error-ed out of a fight due to the dude beating the last one in the gym….
so I couldn’t add my monster and obviously I was pissed as I beat those monsters several times before he came and snatched the kill/gym with leavin me not being able to add mine due to “gym being in fight”… grrrrrr. Thanks error shit. -_-
On 12th of August there will be a Pokémon Event in Amstelveen. I really want to go but I am quite confused about the information they put out. Neither Niantic nor Stadshart give information regarding registration… and I’m really confused because:
1. they said it’s free for anyone so ofc ppl from other countries booked flights and hotels (though I don’t get why ppl come from Norway, UK or France when they get events in Paris, Chester, Stockholm and Kopenhagen?!)
2. then they said it’s limited to 2000 -_-
3. now it’s limited to 3500 (since yesterday) -_-‘
4. they don’t say how to register, when and where
5. many websites, news magazines and sorts had interviews with Niantic and put out different information regarding registering to the event while Stadshart claims to put out information “soon” (since days)
The organisation simply sucks balls!
I’m mad to the point I don’t even want to go anymore due to random fucktards with the already known intention to block several tickets for all family and friends and whatnot. (Not even talking about botters and cheaters or people who just get a ticket and never show up, yet)
Besides all that madness… As I didn’t post this in a while: here’s my 2nd Gen PokéDex:
today I will go on a short weekend vacation in Germany 🙂
Pokémon Go Plus can not find gym disks although they count as Stops…. that kinda sucks.
Today I finally could put a monster into the gym at the train station (after days of beating other teams *lol*
I finally tried a raid battle. Alone. *lol*
First: use the Raid Pass
Second: Wait until the starting counter is done and choose your monsters – users can join your party if they have the code (shown in upper right corner)
Third: Beat the crap out of the raid boss
It showed “Networ Error” 3 times after starting and I couldn’t beat the Pokémon in time – then it got stuck anyways due to the error and I needed to reboot the app -_- I think as none of my used monsters were dead it actually didn’t count at all.
There’s a new event: From 6th of July, 1PM PDT until 24th of July, 1PM PDT there will be special Pikachus and an Anniversary Box that includes Incubators, Max Revives, Ultra Balls and Premium Raid Passes.
I finally got my highly-anticipated Houndoom (evolved from Houndour) and am still walking Larvitar. The end is near~~~
Tuesday I was rather sick (thanks to female problems and heat) and missed my daily PokéStop spin. I probably will skip on Sunday to turn back to my usual rhythm of SUnday = 7th day 😀
We got a new patch! Gyms look really different now and are somewhat PokéStops 😀
So before the patch the gyms were undergoing maintenance and any Pokémon being stocked in before that was kicked out *hoorah*
After they decided to push the new system – which might’ve been yesterday afternoon up to this morning, I don’t know – I was surprised how it looks like now. (First picture taken a few days before, the other two today…. but man this looks like we want to shoot rockets with the gyms now)
You can spin disks now at these PokéGyms – and you should!
The first time you spin a disk at a Gym it will give you the Gym Batch plus items (cooldown as usual PokéStops is 5 minutes).
The first spin per day will reward you with a special berry (didn’t see it in inventory but could use it on Pokémon at gym) and a Raid Pass.
Spinning a disk in a gym that is occupied by your team grants a “Team Bonus” (+1 per Pokémon)
CP = Health and will be depleted by each fight until it hits 0 – then the monster will be kicked out of the gym. The berries help restore the CP/Health.
You will also receive a popup message in the app when your monster gets kicked out from a gym.
Besides that: You CAN NOT fight against your own Pokémon anymore!
They changed the interface as you can already see above but also for arrangement of the Pokémon in the gym – looks really nice (usually the hearts are displayed, my app showed a Network error so it didn’t load the hearts :D):
Well as you can see the interval of posting declines 😀
Not because I don’t play but because nothing happens 😀
Well, I am still catching things. I am trying to beat other teams in gyms.
I didn’t catch anything new but I was able to use some of my upgrade items on caught monsters 🙂 Less crap in inventory *lol*
My Plus finally ran out of battery. Took me a few days to get a new battery and played less in that time buuuuuuuuuut I am back playing between home-> work and vice versa + home until sleep now 🙂
A new patch was released with some bug fixes although I don’t know what they fixed *lol*
Tonight a new event will start \o/ maybe I’ll be able to catch a Houndour.
Specifications of the Solstice Event:
13th of June, 1PM PDT – 20th of June, 1PM PDT
rate of catching fire and ice types increased
EXP Bonus for Nice, Great, Excellent and First throws
EXP Bonus for hatching eggs
50% discount on Lucky Eggs
To celebrate the first anniversary of the game, Niantic plans to host several events. The first one will take place on 22nd of July in Chicago, Illinois, USA. More information on other events will be posted soon. Somewhen.
I hit Level 35 when popping my first PokéStop on Tuesday 😀 that item flood!
I also received another upgrade item on a random PokéStop…which totals me now to 5 in my inventory… I don’t even know what to do with all of these. Ofcourse one is reserved for Scythor (AKA Ravana) and one for Sunkern. But the rest: I don’t know~~~
I walked Teddiursa to 50 candies and evolved it to Ursaring. That one also was the 70th of 2nd gen Pokémon and gave me the achievement, hoorah!
Right now, I am pushing Scythor to 50, so I can use the evolution item on it. I guess I walk my Sunkern after (not the CP10 one, that was just the first to be caught).
(If you also have a keen eye you will notice that I expanded my item inventory… that happened after the item flood due to PokéStop + leveling up as those burst my inventory and I didn’t want to throw away my hard-earned balls.)
Another week is over~
And the Pikachu event is over as well.
I caught some of these buggers with the festive party hat – I think they never wrote it on the official page but changed the spawn rates of Pikachu so people like me who never see Pikachu can catch it too.
There was another patch but as it said “minor text fixes” it’s not really worth mentioning, is it?
Some new buggers joined my team: I caught a Remoraid and hatched another one just a day later 😀
Yesterday after work I caught a Pineco.
Right after posting my last blog I got a Politoed from a hatched Poliwag and obtained King’s Rock.
I’m walking my Omanyte – that will take a long while to get it evolved 😀
I really think I got too many 10km eggs right now 😦 I was in need to walk one last weekend as I got rid of all my 2KM and 5KM eggs – I hatched a Dratini 😮 which I really could’ve needed when I was walking Dratini but well~ why not~ I just really don’t want to walk 10km eggs really often right now as I’m sparing them until level 35 when I get new Incubators for free – on the other hand I might need to walk them before that to get some space… right now I am back on 6x 10KM eggs. That’s alot 😀
Left picture = weekend’s eggs, right picture = today’s eggs.
The fight over the train station gym is really hard these days *lol* usually my monster (Gyarados) is getting kicked out right after I put it in – latest 10 minutes later *lol* fun! As long as I get my daily reward I don’t mind.
