Title: There was a fucking Ekans in my bed
Post by: Ditto on July 06, 2016, 10:43:54 PM
Aka pokemon go is goofy as shit but kind of cool. I caught 10 pokemon before it froze and the servers went down.

It worked most of yesterday for me, and all of today. I was at a family gathering, and I kept wandering off because a Squirtle, a Dratini, and a Nidorina all showed up.

The sheer amount of people I've run into who play this is astounding. Randomly bumping into 30 people throwing lures out at a coffee shop today was insane.

There was at least a 100 people playing, wandering around my town. There is like 16 stops within a quarter mile area in the main part of town and 6 of them were set up as lures. There was a dude just driving up and down main street playing the theme song. its kinda cool.

I haven't run into TOO many people yet. I was walking up and down Main St in my town hitting all the Stops to collect items, but I only saw a group of about 4 others that seemed to also be playing. Then, as I was leaving, a girl coming out of the park told me there were two lure modules right next to each other in there.

Title: Re: There was a fucking Ekans in my bed
Post by: scourge on July 12, 2016, 06:56:32 AM
I just downloaded it last night, but I was sitting near the park w/ my friend who herself had just started and we were watching all these people at this one poke stop catching them like nuts. This was maybe 12 hrs ago. As I walked around I began to realize the world was filled with people playing this thing, and then... Then I joined in. As of last night I've been catching them and in my apartment, without leaving my kitchen, I caught:

Squitle, bellflower, weedle, 2 doduos, zubat, pollysomething, and I was just checking to see if I had anymore (besides my original bulbasaur) I noticed there was a raratat just sitting there on my dick just now as I lay in bed (above the covers). Also there's a poke stop close by enough to access from my apt.

Glad I now understand what this thread is about. Wish there was a way to invest in this thing before it blew up. If there's ever a social element to this game, I'm listed under ProffesorMurder

I'm absolute shit at throwing balls at things. Sunday morning I walked all over just hitting Stops, and I got up to 100-some balls. This afternoon I just ran out again (though I did catch a 195 power Squirtle on my very last ball, so I got that going for me).

Speaking of Squirtle, is it just me that can only find them? I have seen 3 Squirtles in the last three days, but not a single Bulbasaur or Charmander.

I've found a couple Charmanders. Apparently a Bulbasaur/Ivysaur/Venusaur spawning area is a block away because I've found the second two forms, but can't seem to catch them. I live next to the ocean but haven't gone to it yet. So no water types.

Title: Re: There was a fucking Ekans in my bed
Post by: XerxesTWD on July 12, 2016, 11:55:32 PM
If you see a ton of one type. I live next to a park, so I see lots of grass, bug and normal types. Growlithe and Vulpix show up occasionally. The canyon paths nearby have Geodude and Onyx.

It's not perfect, but different terrain can give you different types.

Other peoples' areas are different than mine, I see. I haven't seen a single Pinsir or Growlithe or Vulpix or Doduo. I have Eevee and Clefairy and Drowzee for days, though. I caught, like, 5 Drowzee in a row last night and evolved my second Eevee.

Also saw ANOTHER Squirtle last night, but this one fled from me, dammit.

Did catch a Jynx, though.

Haha... my wife HATES all my pursuits. She won't read a comic, hates any video game that isn't Tetris or Mario Party, can't stand wrestling, and sure as shit doesn't get Pokémon Go. We went to the park Monday night to walk, and she thought the number of people there playing Go was ridiculous.

I need to get her to give it a try since she spends so much time on her phone as it is.

I started yesterday at level 15, and this morning I hit level 18. Nice little jump.

On my last walk, I got my second 10km egg, so I'm excited about that, even if it takes a few days to hatch. My only other 10km egg was a friggin' Kabuto, and I'm hoping to do better than that this time.

And hey REALLY need to get the tracking system back up, because this morning I had both an Aerodactyl and a Dragonite on my radar, but had no idea where to find them.

What level are you? Do 10k eggs and wild high-level Pokemon like Snorelax appearing at higher levels? I'm at 10 now. I've got a couple of luckey eggs I'm saving for when I have a bunch of Pokemon ready to evolve.
Title: Re: There was a fucking Ekans in my bed
Post by: scourge on July 22, 2016, 11:43:06 AM
I'm level 17. Generally the same Pokemon appear for everyone regardless of level. You just encounter higher CP versions of the same ones if you're a higher level. Never seen a wild Snorelax. Don't know that 10k eggs appear any more frequently at higher levels. Some friends had them at much lower levels. I only recently received my first two from Pokestops. Usually I get 2k or 5k eggs. I'm also saving a lucky egg for a bunch of evos. Want to catch at least one more Staryu & Evee before I pull the trigger. A higher level Venonat might also be good, but yeah I think I'll be evolving a good half dozen+

Pro tip: if you want a specific Evee type google it, but the word is naming your Evee after a specific trainer from the Evee episode of the Pokémon series will yield the Evee of your choice e.g. Naming it Pyro will give you a Flarion, Rainy a Vaporion and Sparky a Voltron... I may have gotten some of those names wrong.

Close, it's Rainer, not Rainy (allegedly). I'll know when i catch my next Eevie.

I'm overrun with Rattatas currently. I wonder if the makers of the game are trying to say something about the cleanliness of NYC...
Title: Re: There was a fucking Ekans in my bed
Post by: Ditto on July 22, 2016, 03:42:46 PM
The trick works,  the only drawback is it only works once for each form. So save it for higher levels.

God, trying to get Vileplume, Victreebell, Nidoking, and Nidoqueen takes forever. But I'm getting close. I have 90+ candies for each Nido, and 70+ for each plant.

Title: Re: There was a fucking Ekans in my bed
Post by: Ditto on July 22, 2016, 04:20:31 PM

You can earn coins once a day by holding a Pokemon at a gym. Once you have one there, click on shop, then click on redeem. Gives you 10 coins and 500 stardust. Again only works once a day no matter how many Pokemon you have in gyms but it's worth it

All I have is 20 myself.  Since I concentrate more on getting evolutions to fill out my Pokedex, and less on powering up, most of mine aren't strong enough to last too long at a gym (or take one over).

Title: Re: There was a fucking Ekans in my bed
Post by: scourge on July 23, 2016, 12:22:16 PM
They do evolve, but you have to actively evolve them. You have to evolve them by collecting enough "candy" of the right type. So more Pokemon of one type you catch, the more candy for that type you have, 3 candy for every one you catch. Collect enough and you can evolve one Pokemon of that type, it usually takes about 50 candy for most evolves. You can also "transfer" your excess Pokemon of that type for 1 more "candy". It's basically Pokemon Soilent Green.

You get a LOT with $20.

I upgraded my bag by 100, bought a bunch of incubators and some lucky eggs. I've hatched a shitload of eggs since then. I might spend another 20 in a week or 2.

I'm only level 21, but I was level 10 less than a week ago.

Dragonite is one of the best. Would like one to fuck up all these powerful water types taking gyms. I mean my Snorlax eats through any 2 or 3 heavy hitters, but still a Dragonite would do it even faster given the ubiquity of the water type. I could go grass type but I'm saving my oddish and bellsprout candy up till I can do two evolves on whichever is most beastly at the time. I'm getting close to a paras evolve... hope to find a stronger one before going down that path.

Snorlax is also my prize from one of those 10k eggs. Have an areodactyle too from the only other one I found but he's not nearly as powerful.

My top 6 at the moment

1. Snorlax CP 1633 (he's been upped a little w/ stardust)
2. The Bern (a Flarion) CP 1189
3. Buzzfeed (the Electrobuzz I caught this morning) CP 1113
4. Killer (a Wigglytough that was my number 1 stunner for a long stretch, upped a lot) CP 1027
5. Aerodactyle CP (upped a little) 1026
6. Starmie CP 1000

Feel like I've got a good mix of types in there and I don't think I've seen a gym I couldn't take. Holding on to is another matter. Put my Snorlax in a minigolf course last night then did a few battles to up the prestige. Lasted a few hours. But then so did my Areodactlye that was helping hold down another gym right near that one. I sure as hell haven't been able to keep one for a full 21 hrs.

Don't even worry about holding onto a gym. Just try to get as many as you can near each other can cash in for your 500 stardust and 10 Pokecoins per gym. You can only do it once every 21 hours.
Title: Re: There was a fucking Ekans in my bed
Post by: Thanos6 on July 27, 2016, 09:17:50 PM
Yeah, basically, win a gym, get your "bounty," and don't worry about it until tomorrow.
Title: Re: There was a fucking Ekans in my bed
Post by: Not BAMF on July 27, 2016, 09:42:33 PM
Yeah, I have since figured that out. I could have sworn I read somewhere originally that said you had to hold a gym for 21 hours before you could get the rewards, but I have since figured it out.

It's been the best way so it seems. I've managed to get a twofer on my redem. Apparently you can get up to 10, but holding would be too tough. Anyways tonight I had one and tried to hold off to see if I could maybe get another and lost the first.
Title: Re: There was a fucking Ekans in my bed
Post by: Not BAMF on July 28, 2016, 06:38:52 AM
Haha... yeah, last night there are two gyms, maybe 500 feet apart, that are close to my house. Both were Blue, so all I had to do was train them and add one of mine. I got the first, and in the 10 minutes MAYBE that it took to walk to the other and take it, I lost the first. Damn it.

One thing that annoys me about gym training is that you can only use one of your Pokemon, as opposed to six for a real battle.  So if your local teammates are all strong as hell, it can be tough to get any training in.
Title: Re: There was a fucking Ekans in my bed
Post by: NeoGreenLantern on July 28, 2016, 10:44:43 AM
Wait you can use 6 pokemon while trying to take a gym? How does that work? I've only ever used one while attacking a gym.

Then that was a gym your team already owned. You only get to use one pokey for training (going at a gym your team owns), but six to take over (going at a gym one of the other two teams owns).

Yeah, if you're trying to take a gym from another team, it recommends 6 Pokemon that the game thinks you'll have the best chance with, and you can make your own substitutions before you start, and during the battle you can switch in and out.

So apparently the most recent update has made it so catching Pokémon has gotten a LOT harder. Pokeys break out of the ball more often, do their little "attack the ball and can't be caught" thing more often, and worst of all, flee more often.

All while tracking remains disabled (they took away even the 3 Footprints, leading people to think Tracking is gone forever now) and sites like PokeVision now don't work at all.

It should not take me more than five balls to catch a 10 CP Pidgey. I understand the risk of catching a rarer or a higher level Pokemon but low level shitbirds? Give me a break. This game went from fun to a chore. I'm going to GPS spoof the fuck out of this game.

Yeah, this game is borderline unplayable now. First we lose tracking, and now everything takes half a dozen balls to catch... and that's if they don't flee after the first failed attempt (which is happening to me about 25% of the god damn time).

Oh, and the XP needed to go from level to level after LV20 is ludicrous.

Who fucking knows? It takes like 1 million+ experience per level for 30-onward.

That requires bots, hacks, or a shitload of time I don't intend to invest. If I hit 30 before next summer, I'll be happy.

Even doing the pidgey and Lucky Egg trick tops me out between 60-100k per 30 minutes, supposing I hatch a couple eggs or evolve a new entry.

This game is starting to become a chore to play. I got really good at the curveball technique, but after the last patch I have not been getting credit for it. Pidgeys and all of that low-level shit breaking out on multiple throws. Seeing the same shit over and over, too.

Previously, if you kept it under 40 (if you play while driving, like I do on my way to work), your avatar would still show itself walking and I could knock out a 5k egg in a back-and-forth trip across town. Now that stupid "You are traveling too fast!" thing pops up if you get over 25 or so and it's irritating because I don't think I'm getting the distance credit. It's 100+ for weeks at a time here and I'm not interested in waiting until midnight for it to cool down enough for a walk. #1stworldproblems

Did catch a wild Snorlax a few days ago (and a wild Exxecutor the next day). Both with CP over 1300 (I'm level 18). They've been my go-to Vaporeon killers since fucking EVERYBODY seems to have one of those. There are several gyms not too far from my house, so I have done a gym run, taking a couple and then cashing it in.

Now I have a jillion balls, but I NEVER get any potions. I have about a dozen Pokémon that have had 1HP for days. And I can't take any gyms any more because I have never left to battle with.

Today was the first time I bothered with a curveball in awhile and I got some points for it (I remember it being 50 initially, now it's 10). Not worth it to me. I DID manage to hit an Excellent throw on a low-level Ekans. And that motherfucker broke out in .2 seconds.  >:(

Well sure, but hundreds of millions (our numbers don't add up to the correct population of the US!) are, too. Also, even in the South some people won't go out because they think 50 degrees is unbearable. Pussies!

But they need to figure out some way to keep it worth playing or they're going to lose a fuckton of money.

Yeah, but it's easier to go out in really hot than it is to go out in freezing cold. They're both unpleasant, but I'll take sweating profusely over trudging through snow or not being able to feel my fingers when I'm flinging the ball.



Anyway, I finally had a good luck night. I came across an Ivysaur and a Venusaur basically sitting on top of each other and caught them both.

Oh my god, you're being intentionally ignorant and stubborn all the sudden, Xerx.  :P

Yes, I have those. They aren't amazingly precise, especially for a game where I have a bad habit of launching balls slightly to the side and missing. Also, they are thin, so you've still got the cold hands overall. They are not ideal.

Post by: XerxesTWD on August 18, 2016, 09:04:30 AM
Ignorant of what? It gets cold outside? I've lived in the cold and done things requiring a lot more precision than a phone game. They'll probably be fine, even though the game still needs lots of improvements.

You also don't need gloves that are thin to have capacitative tips. Only one tip needs it. The rest can be bundled like a real glove.

I completely disagree.  Give me the cold any day.  You can keep adding on layer after layer, but there's only so much you can take off.

Of course, I am the guy who wears jeans and T-shirts even in the dead of winter...

My town has 8 pokestops and 3 gyms in a quarter mile radius and I still see people in town late night playing. They need to do some serious updates soon. I thought maybe winter might give the game a hit but I started realizing a lot of malls and shopping centers have stops so its not impossible to play the game in doors which means the game might benefit during the Christmas shopping season.

They are introducing new aspects. The buddy system is coming out likely this week, which will make it easier to get candy for hard-to-get pokeys so you can finally evolve them. And trading is supposedly going to be added in the next update or two.

In continuity all of Brock's Mons are relatively weak as Brock is not focused on battling and is instead focused on love/food.

In the anime the more a trainer tends to focus on actual battling instead of one of the pyriad of other hobbies related to pokemon, the stronger that trainers pokemon are.

Ash is all about battling. His pokemon are strong and shit because of this whereas someone like Tracy form the Orange league would have a strong pokemon or two, but would generally simply have weaker mons due to his specific focus not being battling.

I'm still holding out hope we get Crystal Onix in Sun/Moon. Give it Dry Skin and it'll be immune to water attacks and weaker to fire, just like in the anime.

Crystal Onix was pretty dope.

Yeah, but, that's like a retcon.

Cause Onix was the WORST Pokemon in Gen 1, so he got thrown a bone and I guess became one of the best first-form Pokemon?

Not even close. It's a very shit mon relegated to the lower and unused tiers.

Was in San Fran Monday and picked up a shit-ton of water types down by Fisherman's Wharf. Stuff I wouldn't normally see around here (re: Cal's northern valley; ratatta's for daaaaays).

I'm still playing. I just hit level 25 this weekend. Jesus the XP needed from level to level after 20 are absurd.

They are introducing new aspects. The buddy system is coming out likely this week, which will make it easier to get candy for hard-to-get pokeys so you can finally evolve them. And trading is supposedly going to be added in the next update or two.
If it helps: at level 39, you are halfway to level 40 as far as experience earned.

Winter is almost upon us. Curious to see who is still playing. And if still playing, what level are you on and who are your 7 strongest Pokemon?

Aside from the above post, I haven't touched this since about August. I suppose if I traveled out of my area more often, I'd bother. But I split time working from home and my office which is all of 6 minutes from my house, so I'm rarely in an area/climate different from my day-to-day shit. And I've had my fill of fucking Pidgeys and Rattatas.

I believe I'm halfway through 20.

I significantly slowed down play when they were having constant shitshows a few months back. I skipped the Halloween and Ditto events due to playing other games.

I'll start again when the new Pokemon are added in January or whatever it is.

I still play every day, but I've gone from about an hour+ at least, to playing just enough to get the daily bonuses (a few minutes if I'm near a stop). My interest PLUMMETED when I finally found a fucking Dragonite (I have a Dragonite, but his CP is a god damn 44 so he doesn't count), and after throwing 80+ Ultra Balls and wasting all my Razz Berries, he fled. That was the end of my REALLY caring because that was some bullshit. Every gym in my area has 18 Dragonites on them, but as soon as I find one, he's un-fucking-catchable.

And then, yeah, the weather hasn't helped, either.

Oh, and the recent update that jacked around all the CPs? That pissed me off, too, because I had 2 Victrebells over 2100 CP that both got nerfed to the 1800s. Same with my 2 strong Arcanine that also got bumped down. Way to make sure I wasted all that Stardust, Pokémon Go.




Anyway...

I'm almost level 29 (261,820 out of 300,000 on LV28).

My strongest pokeys are:

Gyarados - 2730
Vaporeon x6 (yes, my next SIX strongest are all Vaporeon: 2632, 2619, 2548, 2448, 2402, 2216)
Jolteon - 2179
Machamp - 2122
Jolteon - 2107
Golem - 2075
Flareon - 2053

I haven't played seriously since the starters event (whenever that was). I've popped on for a few minutes here-and-there since Gen 2 started, but I haven't done any real hunting or gym training. Maybe when it's consistently warm again...

But I kind of get addicted to one game at a time, and for the last 6 weeks or so, I've been playing Marvel Puzzle Quest.

I'm level 24. I've been playing a lot more since they added the daily and weekly bonuses.

Plus when I hit theme parks I get an enormous surplus of everything. The only thing I need to buy are incubators but Google surveys pay for those.

I just checked while I was walking on my break at work... I'm 188,000 XP into level 29.

And I caught a Skiploom. Hooray?

I hatched a Wooper on my way to the actual gym today, so watch yourself.

I started playing again this weekend for the Easter event, which has been fun and has coincided with 70-degree weather, so that's nice.

Today I hit level 30, though, and now I have 587/500 items. So unless I dump all the good level up stuff I got, I won't be able to flip any PokeStops for quite a while, so I won't be able to get any new eggs.

Ugh.
Title: Re: There was a fucking Ekans in my bed
Post by: XerxesTWD on April 17, 2017, 10:48:26 AM
Same here. I have 484/450. Can't get the daily bonus, can't get more eggs and all I have are 2k and a couple better ones already in incubators.
Title: Re: There was a fucking Ekans in my bed

Aw shit, the daily bonus, too. I forgot about that. Nuts.

It should at least give you credit for the spin, but I can confirm it does not.
Title: Re: There was a fucking Ekans in my bed
Post by: scourge on June 01, 2017, 08:17:13 AM
Just delete items you don't really need--

Those Nanab Berrys just take up space. If you have tons of high level positions, delete the low level ones etc.

Then you can spin again

Anyone play on this new system? Anyone catch any of the legendary ones? A guy in my neighborhood caught me an Articuna last night and I didn't even have to put out.

I officially gave up for good with the new gym system and the raids. Game finally became too tedious for me.
Title: Re: There was a fucking Ekans in my bed
Post by: scourge on August 11, 2017, 12:11:02 PM
Kind of liking it more now. People less likely to just sit forever in gyms/ more one day earning potential from them. Raids and the cooperative aspect reminds me of the atmosphere when it first started. A lot more in person interaction than any other video game. If you like that sort of thing.
