Yeah, got to Level 27 yesterday.

Madchen, Saturday, 10 December 2016 06:55 (three years ago) link

Nearing level 25. Just want to catch the rest of the Pokemon ( I have 108 so far) so I can be freed.

michaellambert, Saturday, 10 December 2016 14:06 (three years ago) link

Um you know there are another 100 or so Pokémon due to be added in the near future?

JimD, Saturday, 10 December 2016 15:36 (three years ago) link

Oh bollocks.

michaellambert, Saturday, 10 December 2016 16:43 (three years ago) link

Like Monday

ein Sexmonster (Jimmy The Mod Awaits The Return Of His Beloved), Saturday, 10 December 2016 19:11 (three years ago) link

Level 31, 135 pokes in my pokedex.

Hey Bob (Scik Mouthy), Monday, 12 December 2016 06:13 (three years ago) link

So I caught two festive Pikachus at lunchtime, and I see someone on campus hatched an Elekid and stuck him in a gym to show off. Most rubbish 'event' ever. They'd better be rolling other stuff out over the next three weeks.

Hey Bob (Scik Mouthy), Tuesday, 13 December 2016 13:42 (three years ago) link

Finally hatched a Snorlax today. In about a decade I might get a Dragonite. Spotted a festive Pikachu in the area, but it was off my usual commute route and I was already late for work.

Madchen, Tuesday, 13 December 2016 13:58 (three years ago) link

I hatched a Snorlax on Friday. Managed to evolve a Gyarados about a week ago too. I'm kind of assuming a Dragonite is months off because even walking for the candy is just no good.

I'm missing Bulbasaur, Chansey, the international ones, Dodrio, Lapras, Porygon, Omastar, and Kabutops.

Had a crazy idea about exchanging account details with someone in Aus or the US or Japan in order to get Kangaskhan etc in exchange for Mr Mime. Except that Mr Mime's fucking horrible so who wants him.

Hey Bob (Scik Mouthy), Tuesday, 13 December 2016 15:54 (three years ago) link

three weeks pass...

Hatched a Magby today from a 10km egg and suddenly my Pokedex went from 149 spaces to 240. I'll never be free of it.

michaellambert, Friday, 6 January 2017 17:57 (three years ago) link

I have given it up for January. It is very strange fighting the impulse to spin pokestops as I pass them on my commute.

Madchen, Saturday, 7 January 2017 12:51 (three years ago) link

two months pass...

Anyone still playing now the gen2 lot have been out for a while? I gave up for a while after new year but have been lured back in; injury keeping me off the bike means walking to work (4km each way) so why the hell not, eh.

Hey Bob (Scik Mouthy), Tuesday, 21 March 2017 09:35 (three years ago) link

guilty

ein Sexmonster (Jimmy The Mod Awaits The Return Of His Beloved), Tuesday, 21 March 2017 13:43 (three years ago) link

I gave up between 1st January and 17th March. Back into it, but I still sometimes forget to turn it on for the commute, so it's not the addiction it was. Already sick of catching Swinubs.

Madchen, Tuesday, 21 March 2017 16:47 (three years ago) link

Exciting water festival.

Hey Bob (Scik Mouthy), Thursday, 23 March 2017 11:42 (three years ago) link

Exciting that I will *finally* get a special item later this week.

Madchen, Thursday, 23 March 2017 13:21 (three years ago) link

xps make sure you keep getting those swinubs for mamoswine in gen iv!

nxd, Thursday, 23 March 2017 13:25 (three years ago) link

also shiny magikarps now

ein Sexmonster (Jimmy The Mod Awaits The Return Of His Beloved), Thursday, 23 March 2017 19:10 (three years ago) link

I've had three king rocks and two metal coats now. Need the water one for kingdra.

Hey Bob (Scik Mouthy), Thursday, 23 March 2017 19:48 (three years ago) link

Oooh, I finally got a Dragonite. That's exciting. Hatched a dratini which gave me enough candy to push me over 100.

Hey Bob (Scik Mouthy), Monday, 27 March 2017 10:03 (three years ago) link

I'm desperate for a shiny magikarp. I've got 550 magikarp candy burning a hole in my pocket.

Hey Bob (Scik Mouthy), Monday, 27 March 2017 10:04 (three years ago) link

four months pass...

Anyone else still playing? They finally released legendary birds.

Hey Bob (Scik Mouthy), Monday, 31 July 2017 08:26 (two years ago) link

With regrets

ein Sexmonster (Jimmy The Mod Awaits The Return Of His Beloved), Monday, 31 July 2017 12:32 (two years ago) link

Yeah. My battling days are few and far between now - it takes too long - but I'm still going.

Madchen, Monday, 31 July 2017 16:15 (two years ago) link

New gym system has vastly upped my coin intake. I have fancy clothes now.

Hey Bob (Scik Mouthy), Monday, 31 July 2017 18:25 (two years ago) link

Are you taking gyms down or just plopping one of your pokes in wherever there's a space?

I had a Blissey in the gym at Hoxton station for a week and didn't get anything back because my Rhydon got kicked out of another gym on the same day, after ten hours. Very annoying.

Madchen, Monday, 31 July 2017 18:34 (two years ago) link

I'm taking gyms near me (there are a lot in NY...) so I can usually have enuf going that I can get my golden points everyday which is a HUGE improvement over the old system. the legendary raiding thing is p fun tbh if you are in a heavily populated area around, say lunchtime.

ein Sexmonster (Jimmy The Mod Awaits The Return Of His Beloved), Monday, 31 July 2017 19:38 (two years ago) link

Both. My office is a gym and there's a gym where I walk the dog so that helps...

Hey Bob (Scik Mouthy), Tuesday, 1 August 2017 04:34 (two years ago) link

Working at a university is great. I just scored a Lugia at my office with the help of a load of PhD students.

Hey Bob (Scik Mouthy), Wednesday, 2 August 2017 13:54 (two years ago) link

fuckin nerd circus amirite

ein Sexmonster (Jimmy The Mod Awaits The Return Of His Beloved), Wednesday, 2 August 2017 14:02 (two years ago) link

Damn right. There were a handful of non uni people who travelled up for the raid (organised on an app called discord which i'd never heard of until last week, as I don't play any other games), but it was mostly PhDs. And I'm a higher level than all of 'em!

Hey Bob (Scik Mouthy), Wednesday, 2 August 2017 14:30 (two years ago) link

...and you caught it which is dope

ein Sexmonster (Jimmy The Mod Awaits The Return Of His Beloved), Wednesday, 2 August 2017 14:30 (two years ago) link

Yeah, I think that was my fourth or fifth raid. Missed articuno.

Hey Bob (Scik Mouthy), Wednesday, 2 August 2017 14:56 (two years ago) link

Yeah this game satisfies my twitchy completist tendencies. Used half my free gold yesterday to score an moltres

ein Sexmonster (Jimmy The Mod Awaits The Return Of His Beloved), Wednesday, 2 August 2017 15:04 (two years ago) link

What level is everyone on? I'm 31, with 205 pokes in my dex (seen 228). Still missing some pretty obvious ones from the first batch - currently walking an Abra toward 100 candies so my Kadabra can be evolved at last.

Madchen, Wednesday, 2 August 2017 15:59 (two years ago) link

And my top three are a Rhydon (2877), a Blissey (2769) and a Tyranitar (2482). Which I'm pretty sure you could all beat.

Madchen, Wednesday, 2 August 2017 16:01 (two years ago) link

35/237. Didn't get a Mime when I was in Ireland earlier this year -_-

ein Sexmonster (Jimmy The Mod Awaits The Return Of His Beloved), Wednesday, 2 August 2017 16:01 (two years ago) link

36/237. Bought a kangaskhan from a dodgy website, to my shame. Have 5 pokes with more than 3000 cp. highest is 3353 dragonite.

Hey Bob (Scik Mouthy), Wednesday, 2 August 2017 20:56 (two years ago) link

Got a corsola & heracross when I was in Orlando earlier this year

ein Sexmonster (Jimmy The Mod Awaits The Return Of His Beloved), Wednesday, 2 August 2017 21:02 (two years ago) link

Got moltres.

Hey Bob (Scik Mouthy), Saturday, 5 August 2017 04:42 (two years ago) link

Here comes Mewtwo.

Hey Bob (Scik Mouthy), Tuesday, 15 August 2017 04:37 (two years ago) link

two weeks pass...

So I've been using Discord and planning raids with people and there are 400-500 users in Exeter, and it's like a weird community, and now I've met people who I've only ever seen in gyms before, and it's very strange. Added an extra dimension or several to the game. I've learnt a lot about mechanics and stuff which I didn't know before. Also it seems I'm slightly mythical; one person was impressed to meet me at a raid because I'm 'everywhere'.

Hey Bob (Scik Mouthy), Monday, 4 September 2017 10:50 (two years ago) link

I've been working all summer in a small town in NW Ohio, and got out for a few Pokewalks where I met up with large raiding groups. The difference in the demographic between Seattle/Redmond and here is interesting - lots of biker types in OH vs coder types in WA. Skews older in OH - lots more 10 year olds in WA vs heavily post-high school in OH. And finally after 1 year+ of playing I evolved a gyrados.

Jaq, Monday, 4 September 2017 22:33 (two years ago) link

The demographic here is very diverse: I've been at raids with teenage boys, entire families, pensioners, international students, PhD researchers, the regional manager of the local cancer research shops, Sainsburys delivery drivers, an older guy on a nice road bike. It's quite a spread. I see some of the same faces really frequently and others just once.

Hey Bob (Scik Mouthy), Tuesday, 5 September 2017 14:44 (two years ago) link

Was there an update that recently rekindled interested in this game? When biking to the gym or walking the dog, I've been seeing large groups with a range of ages all silently standing in a circle, staring at their phones (and blocking the bike path/sidewalk).

change display name (Jordan), Tuesday, 5 September 2017 14:56 (two years ago) link

There was a gym re-work to get rid of Blissey towers and added a raid component (why you see all the people) where a group of people can fight a giant version of high value Pokémon and then try and catch it individually using special balls distributed based on damage dealt, gym control & etc

ein Sexmonster (Jimmy The Mod Awaits The Return Of His Beloved), Tuesday, 5 September 2017 15:01 (two years ago) link

Good to know ty

Raids are p fun tbh but I would rather have a break from the legendaries to score a few TTar, but getting 10K points per legendary raid has me awful close to level 37

ein Sexmonster (Jimmy The Mod Awaits The Return Of His Beloved), Tuesday, 5 September 2017 15:49 (two years ago) link

I'm a million off 37.

Did a ttar raid on the way home. I'm fed up of missing entei. Did really well with the birds.

Hey Bob (Scik Mouthy), Tuesday, 5 September 2017 19:32 (two years ago) link

1/5 on raikou.
