Went from having only the Charmander I got way back when to this:



over the course of a day. I'll definitely be playing Pokémon Go some more.

So this PVP thing is live now, which is whatever, but since there's free stuff for training with my team leader, I could do that... Why can't I figure out how to do that?

EDIT: Okay, I'm a derp, you can do it by going to the place you look for nearby Pokemon and Raids.

Click on the nearby pokémon thing then the battle tab.

In my first match with Blanche she threw out Magikarp, Feebas, and Squirtle.

I feel underestimated.

Everyone is (rightfully) excited about the addition of pokemon battles to the game, but they also added the ability to unlock second charge moves on pokemon and whoops, I spent over a quarter million stardust in a couple of minutes.

Yeah, I'm going easy with it. The pokémon I most want extra moves on require a lot of candy. Others don't have great type synergy. On the plus side, bulky legendaries are now good (and with the way CP is calculated, probably better than they should be)

I am having the worst luck with cresselia raids. Think I've done 4 or 5 so far and either couldn't catch her or we didn't have enough people to actually finish it

I don't think I've ever had more than about 40,000 stardust at a time so extra unlock moves are a "huh, okay" sort of novelty

Aw, I wanted to play this again, but when I try to retrieve my data, Pokemon GO goes "yo, there's an update available" and kicks me to the store page.

There's no update available.

I just redownloaded the game.


Truly, I commend Niantic's dedication to creating a product that not even the most lucrative license in existence can salvage. They're really knocking it out of the park.

...

i just want to see my raticates again okay
i've had a really bad day

Out of healing items.
The last time I recall getting healing items was when I got 20 hyper potions for battling the lord of darkness in an October raid (six of them were soon used to heal the team).

I go to stops, I go to gyms, I open gifts from friends, but all the game gives me are regular balls and berries. I can't challenge no gyms knowing that I can't heal my little critters.

If this situation does not improve I will be playing the game even less, possibly being replaced by the Jurassic Park clone, or the Moomin clone, or the Garfield clone.

That just blows my mind, since I never not have healing items...

My boiiiiiiiiiiis!
I did it!



(ps: they're all named after taco bell menu items)


EDIT:
wow trainer battles are silly
much like i've been saying since, like, day one
these would be better if they were more like MMO combat

auto-attack with the primary move, three slots for "heavy" moves that have a short global cooldown BOOM you have a framework for player expression and strategy

if you want to get real fancy, unlock additional moves or move choices over time by tracking milestones via some kind of... fight-knowing-how-to points won in trainer battles

I think I did... 10 raids today? I started off with 13 premium passes and I have 5 now, plus the daily from yesterday and the one from today. Finally got my Cresselia and a very pretty Lugia



Shiny *and* good IVs??? inconceivable!

also evolved a murkrow... and tried to name him Dumbledore, but that name was rejected (because of 'dumb', I guess), so now he's Dűmbledore.
