>>45497928I would like to be doubled team'd by Terrakion and the fancy one.
Dear Woland,Dude, what the fuck? Send me gifts you nimrod. Or at least open mine. How are we supposed to best besties if you don't open my gifts? I hope you read this and reflect on your actions.t. the anon not getting gifts from you
How should Hanke deal with the spoofattie problem?
>>45498061Who the fuck cares?
I don't play Pokemon Go but I saw you guys are getting a new mon soon. Any clues as to what it is going to be?
i use my real name and live in a small town you fucks wont dox me right
>>45498066No one likes cheaters anon. They are slimy.
>>45498061Explain the problem, but also why every player (or at the very least, the majority) is being so negatively impacted by spoofers they must be addressed.
>>45498150Depends, how important are you?
>>45498134Like data mined stuff?
>>45498220So, nothing, other than it's most likely another new mythical, like Meltan?
>>45498241It's just gen 6 lol
Dear Hanke, give breast sliders.
>>45498165Rewards laziness for an outdoor game while also devaluing everyone's pokemon. This is as stupid as asking why insider trading and counterfeit are illegal.
>>45498294Database made it sound like there would be a new mon.>From December 2nd-8th they (early gen 6) will be appearing more often. A 'mysterious' Pokemon will also be appearing in 1* raids
>>45498327It's probably like Scatterbug or something
>>45498327It's galarian mr mime, and most likely mr rime
>>45498165Fuck off cheater. Add deshitters to the list too.
>>45498338I thought it was gen 6?
>deshit>NOOOOOOOOOOO YOU MUST SPEND TME WALKING WHILE YOU SWIPE PHONE SCREEN holy shit have sex unironically
>>45498354Mime will be the one star raids, like ponyta was a few weeks ago
>>45498360holy fucking based
>45498360You don't know to work for anything lizardbrain. You are a primitive animal who only seeks instant gratification. You won't make in this world and it is your fault. You're weak and inferior not because you can't survive, but you're too lazy to survive. You're an embarrassment to everyone.
>>45498360enjoy walking 12km for a trubbish
>You don't know to work for anything lizardbrain. You are a primitive animal who only seeks instant gratification. You won't make in this world and it is your fault. You're weak and inferior not because you can't survive, but you're too lazy to survive. You're an embarrassment to everyone.
>>45498392NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO YOU CANT JUST DESTROY MY ARGUMENTS
>45498407>Consumerism is badRead a book.
>>45498392no need to tell me anon, I was merely pointed out how silly people sound when they call defit cheating
MugiwaraNoJimmu why’d you un-add me bro?
>he doesn't know consoomerism is the reason we're in this globo homo pandemic because corporations want to kill tribalism, family and colonionalism in order to sell their product to a larger scale of peopleyikerino
>belgian's guy has a pokestop that is a literal rockwhat kind of pagan larping country is that place?
>>45497928okay seriously, what's the fucking point of dittos?
>only catch like 30 Magmars and obtained 0 2k eggs because I was doing stuff with my gf and her parents>still caught like 5 shinies, and some magmars that are good for GL so I have a good GL magmar, and a good GL and UL magmortar>got to coom between two oiled tits in a saunaLife ain't too heck
>>45498512man tits don’t count, you flaming homo
>>45498507Hypothetically, if you have no dragons, you could use it in a dragon raid to do SE damage.
>45498465>He doesn't realize the reason we are in this pandemic now is because retards like him keeps on getting brainwashed by memes and have no grip on objective reality, thus causing him to complain about masking order, cry over people enjoying products they like and worshipping obvious demagogues
>45498535>45498465>they don't realize that this isn't fucking pokémon
>>45498512>>got to coom between two oiled tits in a saunastory
>45498548>consumerism has nothing to do with PokemonBurgers really need to fix their education system. This is just sad.
I had a magmar who ranked #5 in his species for glBut I saw that magmortar is rank 260 in gl, compared to other Pokémon, so I dropped that magmar For ul, magmortar ranks 240, still trash but I had a shiny that could fight competitively so I wasted a sinnoh stoneI should've known that only in masters does magmortar matterI hope 96% IV does the job
>>45498564The thing is, magmortar is shit in every single league, it's only ranked higher in Master League because fewer pokemon can reach high enough total CP's for Master League.You were given 5 Sinnoh stones for basically free this event so don't cry over wasting them.And you never know, they may release a limited format cup where Magmortar is good.
>you will walk your eggs manually>you will not cheat>you will consume
>>45498551I could painstakingly describe the series of events, how it felt, and the smell- and get banned- but the long and short of it was I sat in a sauna with my wife and stuff happened.
>>45498583Buy a chink swing and be done with it, damn
>>45498586>SmellFrom a titjob?
There should be a "transfer to friend" option, where the stats the pokemon has are kept (i.e. not stats re-roll upon the transfer)maybe it could cost stardust or something, i dont mindI play with two accounts, and some good pokemon are in the alternate account.I'd like to have all the good stuff in my main accountwtf is hanke's problem>>45498577this is the last time that magmar is going to be mentioned for at least 10 years
>>45498609officially you aren't supposed to have more than one account as stated by niantic themselves in the tos. not happening
>>45498609>There should be a "transfer to friend" option, where the stats the pokemon has are kept (i.e. not stats re-roll upon the transfer)This is a fucking terrible idea dude. Not only does it STRONGLY incentivize everyone to use multiple accounts (which is against the rules, even though it's basically never enforced) to funnel all the good stuff to one, but it also incentivizes real-money-trading of rare shundos, perfect PvP IV pokemon, and shit like that.
>>45498602We used essential oils to add to the sauna experience. Rosemary.
what's the difference between using defit or a phone swing?
>>45498583>How dare you demand I go outside to play an exercise game
>5 minute queue times in gblI can't wait until these memecups are over
>>45498061ingress players say that cheating/spoofing is detected and banned there. if that's true, i dont know why niantic let's it happen in pogo. after 4 years, android spoofers still exist.
>>45498655>YOU WILL BUY MORE EGG INCUBATORS, PAY UP GOY
>>45498658Just throw some sets, your MMR is too high.
>>45498686>If i don't cheat, I'll lose
Dear ElRista,Stop inviting me to shitty raids. Thanks for the daily gifts though.
>>45498586>wifeOk simp. NGMI
>if I waste my money on trivial meaningless virtual shit that could've easily been solved I don't think so low of myself but feels like I have actually achieved someth-... OH GOD DAMN IT NOT ANOTHER FUCKING TRUBBISH GOD DAMN I HATE THIS GAME
bros Im one set away from getting my masked pikachu
>>45498755You need to win 3 battles in one set after you hit rank10 fyi
>>45498671It's not. I spoofed to level 10 in ingress to add stops in my rural town. The only difference is there's a public record of who does what and when, making it a lot easier for people to report cheaters.
>>45498747You forgot to reply to me :^)I know how scared you are of losing a one player game, so you resort to this kind of thing
>You forgot to reply to me :^)>I know how scared you are of losing a one player game, so you resort to this kind of thing
shut the fuck up you pair of fucking faggots
>>45498814walked almost 300km this week. I love it my bro
>>45498671Android spoofing looks like a pain in the ass though. I do not want to spend $60 on a shit phone just to spoof for this shit game. Granted when I spoofed using an iphone like a year or two ago, it was really fun. The only downside was that back then there were no remote passes so I couldn't do raids with anyone.
>If you don't like cheaters in a game, it means you spend an obsessive amount of money in it!
>>45498827>ndroid spoofing looks like a pain in the ass though>back then there were no remote passes so I couldn't do raids with anyoneyou must be a pretty bad spoofer. yeah andoird can be tricky to set up but at least its save. not finding any raids??? lol...
>>45498837I didn't try any of the sniping across the globe stuff. I just walked around my town and dropped my pokemon in gyms. Granted I WAS retarded in that I didn't grind coins back then for more space, by then again I didn't really care since, again, no raids were possible for me.
>>45498360Cheating is fuckin awesome
>>45498897It's more about finding a way to cheat the chink system than JUST cheating in a pokemon game.
>>45498955I get it
>>45497928Yeah, line up for your shiny shitmon without it's signature moveHanke being the op is becoming tiresome
>only had an hour before work today for magmar >decide to try and attempt to finish it anyway>tfw
>>45499014Nice haul, any of them good iv?
>>45499025the one i evolved was the highest. all but one of the others werent even one star
>>45499034Nice, but a shame they all look ugly.
>>45498983low sperm count
>>45499098Low GF count
>>45498968>waaaaah he's not posting a pic of a mother/daughter at a playground as the OP imageCope
>>45497928>comeback after taking a few months off>find this shitDubs decides what I do with them
>>45499514take and post a unique snapshot with each one
>>45499514evolve them then transfer
>>45499514Level up and evolve as much of them as you can.
>>45499514Evolve them all, max them out, then transfer them.
>>45499514name them all penis
>>45499514max them out
>>45499599Coming right up, good thing I’m a dustlet
>>45499614>thinks hes off the hook because dustlet and candyletnah this is your endgame now
>>45499623A-are you sure I can’t just transfer them all anon? I’d like to spend my dust on other things
>send pokemon to Home for the meltan and box>it loses nicknameIs this a feature? Wtf.
>>45499644You can save your dust, fren. You can transfer them if you want though.
What is this shit hanke
Where's my level 41? :(
Should I prioritize maxing out CP or giving a second move? I’ve got a lot of extra rare candy to burn.
>>45499814>please thank Treespirit Vagiswine, for xer new take on the icon for the Pokemon Go App!
>based spoofchads how will walktrannies ever recover
>>45500061By getting laid
Can someone explain IVs in PVE vs PVP like im retarded?
>>45500296In pvp you simply want to outlast your opponent. With the current algorithm, the preferred pvp iv's are 0/15/15. This is because, without any attack iv, you can power up your shit a couple levels higher than a hundo at the same cp cap and offset your opponent's attack with your higher cp. With pve, higher iv's= higher total cp= higher total damage output.
>>45500296in PVP it doesn’t matter. there are retards that want to maximize stat totals by minimizing ATK and squeezing in an extra HP or DEF here at the same CP, but pvp battles almost never come down to the last sliver of HP. Arguably more important is the fact that higher ATK lets you attack first when there’s a tie.
>>45499933You want a second move for pvp always, nothing more terrible than losing a match that came down to not having a neutral move/super effective move you could have landed after shields were out instead of your lone attack resisting and them living., if its for pve you want max cp and can get by with one move, especially if you have extra tms to swap around.Not sure but darkrai probably sucks for pvp, especially non master league, its heavily attack weighted and will absolutely get deleted by charm.
But doesnt raticate suck?
>>45500441Retardbro, it maxes out at 1776 cp, so it's the 3rd best raticate you can have in UL. It doesn't mean it's even remotely good
>get 5 shiny magmars today>have not found a single shiny meltan this weeki love this game
So why is Rock wrecker better than Stone edge?
That's a good question.
can I get to rank 7 even if I lose a lot? I want my hundo tyranitar to learn his CD move
>>45500725Assuming you don't try to first frame concede every game you queue, you will hit rank 10 this season just by queueing up and afking. You will eventually hit the rating where people DO instant concede because they want the matches over/want their rating lower.
>>45500725>tyranitarYou'll want to reach rank 7 next season for an elite fast TM.
Can you spoof on a galaxy s20?
>>45500345>the preferred pvp iv's are 0/15/15why not 0/0/0?
>>45501103For the same reason. It's about balance. Also anon is only telling the half-truth. 0/15/15 isn't always prefered. The "perfect" IV spread for PvP varies by species and can be looked up on several websites and calculator apps. But it's generally low attack and high def+hp.
> when both me and the wife don’t get a single shiny meltan from either of our boxespain
>>45501167Have you tried stuffing your wife's box?
>>45499034At least it's better than mine (this was a shiny Magby I hatched).Holding out that one of the eggs I didnt hatch has a better one.
>>45501417>evolved your shiny magbyanon...
>>45501531>shiny magbyits a dex entry anyway....
>>45497928The Meltan box says I’ll be able to open it again in 3 days, is this only during the HOME event so I won’t be able to by then or can I really open that shit in 3 days and finally get melmetal? Just no shiny chance?
>>45501611The 3 day cooldown is a permanent change, it's been that way for a long time now.It used to be 7 days.To get the maximum chances for shiny Meltan during the HOME event, you'll have needed to open the boxes on Tuesday 17th November, Friday 20th November, and Monday 23rd November.After that, shiny Meltan will not be available again for the foreseeable future.So yeah you can do Meltan box every 3 days and keep trying to get candies and good IVs, but you just won't get the shiny chance.A lot of players chose to open their box during Tuesday's spotlight hour to order to get double catch candies.By the way, when XL candy becomes available globally, you're gonna want to use those mystery boxes a lot more regularly so you can get those level 50 Melmetal. They're really valuable in PvP, and a Thunder Shock / Rock Slide / Super Power setup is great against Go Rocket grunts and leaders as a shield breaker and damage dealer.
>>45501531>>45501591....what did I do wrong?
How can I be the most annoying and boring possible at pvp?The kind that makes the guy on the other side nearly want to smash his phone to a wall
Looking for some raid action. Still need a shiny Terrakion (I'm not too picky though)5260 1929 2615
>>45501993Ok, but what about the pokemons?
>>45501995This >>45501997. Shit like Lapras, Blissey, Snorlax, etc that take days to kill are maddening to fight.
So close to 100Does this mon have any usefulness if I invest and power it up?
>>45502042Ultra or master or gym attacker?
When will the Go Beyond update start? December 1st?
>>45502045Ul and gym
>>45501670i think there on about trade value. if you were going to trade that people would only really want the magby so that it completes the shiny entry for the whole line and not just Magmorter
>>45502049I heard aus will be getting it two weeks before everyone else. So yeah that sounds about right.>>45502050Thanks for the info
>>45497928Thanks for the invite, näderbro! First legendary i ever get.
>>45502060So I can level up my Pokémon to 50 but the trainer level can be level 40, right?
>>45502062ya but it takes a lot of candies and dust for like a 6% boost or something like that
Is Team Go Rocket getting stronger? I swear I used to be able to kick their asses with some CP2058 pokemon but now I need my CP 3000 plus pokemon whenever they bring out something that has CP9000 or above
>>45499933CP. It's not great in PvP (especially non-master league), but it's a strong dark type attacker for PvE
>>45502136>Go rocket has flying types >Bring a rock type>Rocket sends out Skymory Fuck
>>45502151just send out your electric mon thensurely you didnt stack your team with just one typing right anon?
>>45502136you need a bulky mon that resist the fast move or just gimmick it with stunlocking with power up punch or dragon claw
>>45502125If you're in Australia they probably are going to boost Go Rocket teams to level 50, possibly 55.Team Leaders are already using level 55 legendaries in master league battles, in test areas.
no distance lucky trade when?
I just got to level 38 after four years of playing.I don't have a chance of getting to 40 before 2021, do I?
>>45502331Right now? This very second in fact.
>>45502343You seriously need to git gud if you arent 40 after 4 years
>>45502343not with that doomer attitude
>>45502369>penis pokemon>no penis IVit's shit
I'll probably do 30 raids before I catch 200 mons in a day
>>45502419Doing 200 mons is gonna need a day off, a location by a few Pokestops, and running incense and lures.
>shiny>perfect stats>best move set including Blast Burn>more than seven feet tall when most typhlosions are barely over five and a half> more than twice the weight of a regular typhlosionI might have caught the king of the typhlosions.
>>45502125>Is Team Go Rocket getting stronger?
>>45502480>naming him after your butt hole
>>45502450all it needs is one incense and a community day.
>>45502419I caught about 150 charmanders on the community day, and that was only catching shinies and ones I saw CP800+ to conserve pokeballs.Got 22 shiny charmander that day.
>>45502450You can get like 70 from an incense/meltan box, at worst that's like three hours
>>45502352Isn’t there a 50km range cap?
>>45502480Useless in ML and still not a top fire attacker (4 less DPS and less TDO regardless of resists) so it's still never gonna make it.Now, my 2/15/12 Typhlosion is a fucking Gigastacy in UL premier with shadow claw, BB and Solar meme. She's also not a chunky, overweight shit like yours.
>>45502515how many hours?
>>45502522They made the incenses/meltan boxes more effective again
>>45502542About five hours, incense giving a new charmander every minute or so despite me not moving an inch. It was always a dream to get at least a 3 star shiny charmander, and I got five that day.
>>45502498Or that yeah. All of their challenges just seem to be delay tactics to prevent XP whales from shooting up to level 50 immediately.
>>45502600No, I just did one the other night and I got about 70 encounters. Anything they do to incense (except for spawn pools of course) also affects the meltan box.
>>45502536>chunky, overweightAt seven feet+, he's actually just about perfect at 300lbs. Any less and he'd be pretty lanky. Square-Cube law puts the 1.3x increase in height into a 1.9x increase in weight.
>>45502480>tfw no fat and tall typhlosion bf to give belly hugs to
I can't for the life of me care about PVP in this game.
>>45502853I’m waiting for mega evolution to be implemented in the pvp.
>>45502853You can get tons of Dust and Candy for a relatively low investment. You just need three of these guys at CP1500 and you're good to go.Elite TMs for reaching rank 7 are also a pretty good enticement, although that takes some effort.
>>45502853I just do it until the tryhards show up for the dust.
>>45502853PVP is so bad that makes me wanna delete the game
>>45502949I got a few elite TMs I don't know what to waste them on.Dust? I just randomly capture Pokemon in my house, dust is easy to come by. I got a good team for the GBL too (Azu, Altaria, Meganium), all shiny Pokemon on top of it. I just don't give much of a fuck.>>45502939It would be a neat idea if they also gave you mega energy in PVP.
>misclicked my Elite Charge TM because was distractedkms
>>45503010That would be neat. I wonder what is Hanke waiting for?
>opponent throws shadowball, taking me down to a sliver of HP (correct move was 2x Bone Club though since A.Grav is 4x weak to ground)>could totally have fast-attacked me down>instead I have time to throw a whole volt switch and then click Rock Blast and winNo shame, in the GL you NEVER relax until "YOU WON" comes onto the screen.
>>45503059everytime I come here it's to get (you)s. yes, how did you guess?
>>45502369El famoso nigglett
First shiny i find in pogo.
>>45503146Did you literally start playing today?
this kills the hypj*w
>>45503146Congrats anonUnfortunately he had a community day so it's not a rare shiny.
>>45503170I played at launch for like a month and then dropped it until 3 days ago, so pretty much. >>45503177Well shit.
Hey guys! I'm trying to get to lvl 40 before end of 2020 so I am looking for friends with the same goal for daily gifting.Anyone interested? We should also plan ahead before we lvl up our friendship so we can use lucky eggs.I can add like 150 people.
>>45503299do you spoof?
>>45503303No. Is that a problem?
>>45501654Oh sweet thanks anon. Yeah I’ve got a rank 18 iv GL meltan from the first box so just need 100 or so more candies for melmetal and to power it up.What is XL candy though?
>>45503171ice punch hypno will rek your dnite and shadow ball your raichu

>tank my mmr>everyone starts running Razor leafers
>>45503372>tanking when pokemon encounter has shiny legendary chanceim waiting until the lake trio comes back next week before tanking like a mf
I'm going to have to start getting rid of Shinies in GO. I don't need 15 Electabuzz, a dozen Magmar, two dozen Seedot and so much more, especially if it'll take 10 years to transfer everything
>>45503376>hes a duslet and a candylet
>>45503341>>45503376you just earned 3 rare candiesdump them into licky now
>>45503383I didn't get a chance to play all my sets out last night, so at 11:15 or so I tanked as many as I could for dust.That said, out of like 40 3/5 checks I've gotten literally one fucking legend and it was a shitty virizion (despite hitting r7 the first day it was possible and only having thrown 2 days' sets, for similar reasons to above).
>>45503426he's already 100% power
As I said before,anyone willing to share gifts daily so we can get as much XP as possible from friendship lvl up please add me.5164 7218 7049

I hate getting fucked by Aloha Marowhack. I don't have a low lvl lapris, what should I use to counter him?
>Levels 41-50 have ridiculous requirementsIs anyone else not going to give a fudge about leveling post 40?Are there any benefits to our pokemon post level 40?
>>45503501a.raticate apparentlylapras isnt that good since it survives 2 fucking surfs
>>45503503its just something more to do

>>45503532you know you're gonna do it though despite your complaining
>>45503537>you know you're gonna do it though despite your complainingNope. I hate PVP.If during a community day I happen to catch 200 mons, fine. But I'm not actively going to attempt to complete the level requirements. Besides, I'm still lvl 38.
>>45503532>200 in one a day>That hardJust devote a saturday morning to a brisk jog around town with your Gotcha on
>>45503554>Just devote a saturday morning to a brisk jog around town with your Gotcha onI don't own one and I'm not gonna buy one.>inb4 just spoof bro
>>45503481>Admitting to being a Genwunner
>>45503572>>45503553Well, if you're this much of a casual just keep in mind there's basically no necessity whatsoever to pass level 40 at all. You get some items like incubators and eggs and ETM, but by the sounds of it you don't need it anyways.
>>45503532>200 Pokemon in one day.Real shit? Where's the pastebin/info dump on the new level requirements?
>>45503616>Well, if you're this much of a casual just keep in mind there's basically no necessity whatsoever to pass level 40 at all.Yeah that's the only thing I was concerned about.If I don't get any benefits to my mons why bother?>elitism>lvl 50 jacketahhhh. that's why.>you get some items like incubators and eggs and ETM, but by the sounds of it you don't need it anyways.I essentially own a gym anyways. I've probably made 4000 pokecoins since covid started.not that I'd spend coins on incubators. fuck the egg system and their hidden percentages.
>>45503680>500 exp stingy bitches. should be several hundred thousand to assist with the experience.
>>45503699>posts pic of smug hanke
>>45503678I think, allegedly the max poke-level formula is changing to your level + 10, so hit level 40 and you can have level 50 mons.There might be some benefits though like, increased max wild pokemon level, or maybe increased chance of Critical-catches / higher catch% but none of that is confirmed yet.
>>45503709>dude, just beat a go rocket leader 50 times.It's easy as hell once you've dropped a 1000 dollars into the game
>>45503680How long has it been out wherever that is? I can only assume that 47 and higher is timegated by lmao snapshot days in a row.
>>45503680These all look really easy but incredibly tedious
>>45503680>these only reward 500exp for completionGee, thanks Hankes.
>>45503725>How long has it been out wherever that is?I think it might be datamining. the pic was released in the last couple of days or so.
>>45503725been out for 3 days i think in australialvl46 reached in under 2 days iirc
>>45503725>>45503742yeh friday australia morningso literally less than 72 hours since its been out
For Catch Cup I have decided since I'm rank 10 already to only use shinies I've found during the season. So far I have >AWak>Whiscash>either Raichu or ArbokAm I gonna be alright?
>>45503756I wonder what level that #1 pogo player in Japan is right now.Word is he had on the order of hundreds of millions of experience.
>>45503760Arbok is absolutely fucking trash, and Raichu ain't good but it might be your only option for dealing with Azu at this point so I guess yo might want to use it.Your shiny idea is a nice concept, but you should really consider powering up any GOOD GL candidates you didn't already have before, since it's basically just a good excuse to expand your options for next season.
>>45503791176m for lvl50most whales have this easily
>>45503800Fucking insane. Niantic must be stopped.
I got a shiny Terr but I want shiny Cobaltlion and shiny Verizon.
>>45503810you can stop Niantic by stop playing this game
Where the raids at?5260 1929 2615Looking for Terrakion mostly but I'll do whatever (even 3 star shit depending).Also can Metagross from 3 star raids be shiny or am I wasting my time doing these?
>>45503800>Whale. I only heard whales in terms of standard gacha games, I'm assuming whales in this case are just buying anything and everything?
>>45503856pretty sure whale is a common term now for most mobile games not just gachahttps://www.alistdaily.com/strategy/mobile-gaming-whales-fitting-new-descriptors/#:~:text=Whales%E2%80%94a.k.a.%20players%20who%20spend,the%20definition%20of%20%E2%80%9Cwhale.%E2%80%9D
Is Galarian Rapidash any good? Or is it just dex filler?
>>45503922It can potentially be good in UL, but currently needs to be a 4* for that. It will benefit from the increased level cap.
>>45503853Metagross can't be shiny from raids. I'd still take 10 or 20 metagross candies over 3 candies for a legendary shitmon, but Terrakion's ok I guess.
>>45503922Even if it was, do you really want to be the person that uses a my little ponyta?
>>45503598red and blue are objectively the best games in the franchise
>>45503953I just want it because it's the last one I need a shiny for desu.Idk how I'm gonna get my silver Metagross now tho (or a good one anyway) since beldums are rarer than fucking space diamonds. What else cant be shiny from raids? I did like a dozen fucking Dratini during animation week and never got a pink one so I figure that too.
>>45503969You're wrong since Yellow is the best
>>45503983trade for it
>>45503983Any evolved Pokémon from raids can't be shiny, I think
>>45503999A shiny beldum? Maybe if they make lucky trades global. Idfk what I'd trade tho.That said....where the Terrakion raids at? Dont make me go look myself
>>45504006Not even the regional shit? I could have sworn I saw a shiny A-Marowak
>>45504017No, if it's Galar/Alola yes as long as the base form CAN'T evolve in it.So AMarowak, maybe GWeezing, AExeggutor, ARaichu, etc. can
>>45504054>>45504043Ok so the only evolved shit that can be shiny is either a regional variant or a mega raid...got it.I'll probably be waiting for Megagross raids then at this rate.
Look at my big comfy boy!
How do I get into google doc?
>>45504168>I'll probably be waiting for Megagross raids then at this rate.Be sure to get an elite TM so you can get meteor mash. Without it, Metagross is pointless.
>>45504238Yeah I'm saving those up. Honestly the "ideal" attacks all requiring elite TMs is getting to me in a big way....the fuck is the point of the smaller ones? Everything worth using needs a community day or special raid encounter move.
>>45504259>.the fuck is the point of the smaller ones?Placeholders. Literally. lol
when will we get shiny heracross? pls hanke
>>45504422It's not out yet? Damn, I've caught so many fucking Heracross. They're glassy but they can get so strong.
>>45498586>wifeBut your first post said gf

Should I powerup my shadow Gyarados to lvl 50 and wreck people in ML once it's unlocked outside of Australia?
>>45504618yeah, why not?
Guys someone spilled tomato on my penis, wdid?
>>45504618Do it faggot. Just be careful against electric types.
>>45504618Speaking of Aussies, post your codes you cunts I want gifts from down under.
>>45504618I would wait until it's unlocked, to actually invest in it. You could be waiting for months, and ML isn't even open yet.
>>45504443Well technically we probably qualify as a common-law wedded couple by now, and I got the inkling that she might find my post and she tends to prefer when I use stronger terms.
Why Australia gets first the beta stuff?
>>45504618>Should I powerup my shadow Gyarados to lvl 50 and wreck people in ML once it's unlocked outside of Australia?If you use to for raids, yes.If you don't use it for raids, wait.
>>45504722>Why Australia gets first the beta stuff?cause they're closest to the international date line and there's not a ton of players.
>>45504618you talk like you are the only one thats gonna be maxing shit to 50lmao
>>45504748any proof that mons will get their level cap increased to 50 along with players?
>>45504734Because australia is already hell on earth, so a fucked up beta won't make any difference.
>>45504768that car should be a beldum instead
>>45504756holy shit anon do you live under a rock?even the xl candy and dust cost is already known
>>45504777>holy shit anon do you live under a rock?I haven't heard much of the level increase except for leveling requirements for players.As I understood it, pokemon are capped at 40.
>>45504789well that's fucking bullshit. >inb4 hanke adds elite raids that you must be 40+ to participate in.
>>45504796>adds elite raids that you must be 40+It'd be about fucking time.
>>45504796i hope he does so you fucking levelets learn to play
>>45504808>>45504811I hate elitists like you. You're worse than spoofers.
>>45504818Bet you are the kind of dude that brings heatran to lugia raids
>>45504796>>45504808Honestly I think they should re-add EX raids, and the higher level and more you contribute dmg wise, the more likely you are to get an invite to it.Don't punish just the levellets, but punish the "weight-carriers" who purify their shadows instead of maxing them.
>>45504847>Bet you are the kind of dude that brings heatran to lugia raidsnah. that's my hundo best friend mamoswines job along with 4 or so rock wrecker rhyperiors.
>>45504796That would really suck for everyone not there yet because all of the best players would never do anything less.Speaking of, for now will 41+ players be that much stronger in carrying T5 raids?
>>45504853>Honestly I think they should re-add EX raids,When the rona is over we'll get those again.first one back will be an ex pikachu.>and the higher level and more you contribute dmg wise, the more likely you are to get an invite to it.might be good if they ever had good ex pokemon. last one iirc was regigigas and it fukkin blows.
>>45504876Not really, you can power up stuff to 50 once you hit 40
>>45504876>That would really suck for everyone not there yet because all of the best players would never do anything less.then they should've made the level requirements less ridiculous.45 is going to be a total bitch for people who hate PvP.>Speaking of, for now will 41+ players be that much stronger in carrying T5 raids?It's gonna be a lvl 50 carrying the raid for 19 level 20s
Any anons live in the pacific region who can invite to some uxie raids? I don't want to miss out.5860 9595 3455
>>45504884>Not really, you can power up stuff to 50 once you hit 40wait, so the level requirement goes away? If so, I'm perfectly okay with that.
>>45504899>wait, so the level requirement goes away?pretty much >>45504886>It's gonna be a lvl 50 carrying the raid for 19 level 20ssee>>45504884
>>45504789>29200 normal candies total.Fug dis shit.
>Weather boosted Virizion breaks 15 ballsMan....
>>45505033You should have a pitcher’s mentality. Throw the ball inside the circle just like pitchers throw the baseball inside the strike out box.
>>45505114What a fucking obscure post. I mean it makes sense but it doesn't cover like 75% of actually getting an excellent throw, things like locking the circle and etc. Nor does it mention that having gold medals for Catch x [Type] pokemon also increases your catch-rate.
>>45505150I don't get people acting like getting excellent throws are the easiest thing in the world.>dude, excellent throws are exactly the same for every pokemon. just factor in the pokemon's size and distance and the circle is in the same place. it's easy to memorize that for every single pokemon.
>>45505150Wait so you want excellent throw all the time? I handle it like I’m a pitcher. It works for me so far.
>>45505202I doubt anon is missing balls or failing to throw greats/nice. He also may not have any experience with baseball. I'm implying that your advice... is very niche and probably not helpful.>>45505196I've thrown so many fucking balls in this game, and I can pretty reliably get them so I feel qualified in saying this:It takes a SHIT TON of muscle memory and practice.Basically, you should just always be throwing great Curveballs to not fuck up and get no bonus- until all of your balls seem to be hitting the very center of the circle. At that point, you want to graduate to going for excellents (on that particular pokemon).One needs to basically google how to "Lock the Circle", and just practice a metric fuck tonne- always throwing curveballs and always challenging yourself to throw at a smaller inner circle than you feel comfortable with (on wild, non-rare pokemon) so that when it comes down to it, you have the muscle memory to actually throw those excellents when it counts.tl;dr there is no 'secret' to it, besides practice, and lock the circle to avoid deflections / having to "time" when to throw
>>45505230I can’t help but imagine I’m a pitcher. It’s the only way to get hooked on Go.
>>45505114>>45505150>>45505196>>45505202I mean dont get me wrong, Virizion has a huge hitbox and every throw was great/excellent (except one where it jumped and I hit the bottom of the hitbox, should have waited.), that doesn't change the catch rate for these being fucked all around.Losing a raid mon to rng when you do everything you can to mitigate it is just a shitty feeling in general.
>>45505230>tl;dr there is no 'secret' to it, besides practice, and lock the circle to avoid deflections / having to "time" when to throwI think the last mon that had an easy excellent throw was Rayquaza. His was just smaller than his head and I think i hit excellents 95% of the time.>>45505255>Losing a raid mon to rng when you do everything you can to mitigate it is just a shitty feeling in general.Yeah I'm not doing any of the current legendaries case a) they suck and b) I had an absolute horrible time trying to get terrakion the first go around. I think I went 7 fucking raids before I caught a single one due to it jumping around and being so fucking far back that by the time the ball reached it, it jumped again.
pvp in this game is actually so fucking dog shit garbage. how can you nerds enjoy it?
every single t5 has the same catchrate you retards
>>45505302>pvp in this game is actually so fucking dog shit garbage. how can you nerds enjoy it?I don't bother. Too frustrating.So different than PVE that it's just not worth it.>oh you just need specific mons with specific ivs and specific levels and specific movesets>for each league
>>45505328its not about the things you need. its that the whole battle system is just garbage
>>45505302nobody enjoys it we just put up with it to get the rewards
>>45505316We know. Well, technically the dual-type legendaries have a higher catch rate than the single type legendaries, since we have two Medallions to boost our catch rate vs one.
>>45505341>its not about the things you need. its that the whole battle system is just garbagethat too.
>>45505346>nobody enjoys it we just put up with it to get the rewardsHanke: I'm going to beat you with this whip. But when I'm done, I'll give you an Elite TMPokeplayers: ....okay...
>>45505297Yeah Terrakion is probably the shittiest since it's so far back...I've lost two of those myself.I think I've managed to catch 11/15 of the ones I've attempted this week so I'm not leaving empty handed but it's so nerve wracking. It costs money to attempt more than one a week to begin with, there's always a chance you wont down it without the right group, AND you have about a 70/30 chance of actually catching it once you get past the first two hurdles.It's just such a crappy system, I wish the game had master balls or some other way to eliminate the catch rng for raids.
>>45505351>the dual-type legendaries have a higher catch rate than the single type legendariesno they dont, you get an average between the catchrate of both types, each badge contributes halfwe have known this for years
>>45505388>I think I've managed to catch 11/15 of the ones I've attempted this week so I'm not leaving empty handed but it's so nerve wracking. It costs money to attempt more than one a week to begin with, there's always a chance you wont down it without the right group, AND you have about a 70/30 chance of actually catching it once you get past the first two hurdles.I haven't been raiding much since the rona started but I don't think I've lost a single legendary due to running.Helps that with the new system and the people I raid with I'm getting 16-20 chances per raid though.I've found if you don't have at least one best buddy with you, your catch chances drop dramatically.
>>45505421just checked and i've done 19 legendary raids since the nationwide lockdown hit on cresselia raid hour
>>45505421Yeah I just started playing again in the middle of October so I dont have very many friends above level 2 (doesnt help that so many wont open gifts) so I average 15-18 balls.I've lost 1 cobalion, 1 virizion, and 2 terrakion (oh and a fucking Lapras somehow....forgot that one).I guess it'll eventually level out but for someone trying to get a foot in the door it hurts to lose a high cp one.
>>45505302It’s fun if you know what you’re doing and aren’t a fucking idiot.
>>45505421Agreed, the new system reward many more balls and it's good now that I many more best friends going in. The only raids I've had issues with recently were Cresselia with local randos not joining somehow, sorry Mortanis for wasting your pass.Other than that, buddies from here have been good about getting proper counters and waiting for large enough groups.
>>45505488>I guess it'll eventually level out but for someone trying to get a foot in the door it hurts to lose a high cp one.yeah their legendaries for the most part have been shit since march.sky attack moltres, giratina origin, darkrai, and rayquaza have been the only worthwhile legendaries.that coupled with shit community days and shit weekly research are really pissing the players off. Makes it hard to get a good PVE team going.
>>45505553>DarkraiDarkrai was worthwhile? Because nobody here wanted to do it. When I finally did get into a group for one and down it (the first 5 star I ever did) I got to watch the bastard run after 13 throws.It's just been a huge headache since then. I think close to 1/4th of the raids I clear end in a runner despite landing nothing but great/excellent throws (except on Terrakion....I do manage to miss a few times on those sadly).
>>45505655>Darkrai was worthwhile?Best dark type legendary in the game.>I got to watch the bastard run after 13 throws.Oof. 13 chances is pretty low. I've done raids where I got 9 balls. now that's rough.
>>45505655No one wanted to do it because it wasn't the debut of his shiny (that was last time) and he didn't get his signature move Dark Void.
What are you guys using for Catch Cup? I’m leaning towards Mantine, Ferrothorn, and Machamp, but I’m thinking that might be too generic.
>>45505729That sounds pretty good.I've got a double legacy Seel, was considering a melmetal but that's probably too vulnerable to machamps and all of the ground and fire welfare mons.Will really have to call it the day of, probably
>>45505388I managed to catch the two terrakions I battled. Granted the weather boosted one I caught was two stars, so I don't think it was worth it.Unrelated, I found this dog
>>45505678I have a perfect IV Houndoom though. Should I mega evolve them when I can?
>>45505748Is Melmetal allowed? I know they said no Mythicals, but they only mentioned ones like Mew and Celebi.
Gyms barely drop potionsStops just fuck me with pokeballsGifts barely drop potionsI have 200 fucking great balls but I'm running out of healing capacityWhat the fuck
>>45505810Aw heck, you're right. It probably isn't allowed.
Are any of the Lake Guardians worth chasing, or are they all dex filler?
>>45505833Azelf used to be good psychic DPS but if you have that covered by mewtwo it's just filler.
>>45505819exact opposite problem, please trade with me
>>45505845...you can't trade items, can you?
>>45505891No, but I would like your luck
>>45505781>I have a perfect IV Houndoom though. Should I mega evolve them when I can?If you can afford the cost, sure.non-megas are better imo because you don't have to worry about mega energy
>>45505819>tfw you're sitting on 250 max potions, 250 max revives and 250 revives
>>45505916>tfw you could be sitting on a lot more than this but you keep your revives down to 20, max revives around 60, and total potions under 200 so you can carry more red balls for your gotcha which ensures a that if you EVER need any items you can just go for a walk and have more than you'll ever need
>just need to beat the sierra bitch inorder to complete task for super radar>keep getting bara and nerd leadersPLEASE FOR FUCK SAKE IT HAS BEEN TWO DAYS OF THIS SHIT AND I KEEP REROLLING THE WRONG LEADER. I JUST NEED SHADOW MEWTWO BEFORE HE LEAVES.
>>45506005He's probably not leaving any time soon. That aside, to find him just follow the rocket radar instead of depending on your balloon RNG. :)
>>45505946I keep 50 potions, super potions and ultra potions.I'm hording rare candies like its the end of the world though. over 400I don't generally have a problem with pokeballs. got nigh 300 right now. if i need more i just hit an area of lots of stops.
>>45506016No I am on the task that makes you defeat each of the rocket leaders. I haven't played in a year so I have this task still up from when they started shadow Pokemon.
How do i make rocket balloonfags show up? I need to yeet leaders but apparently true criminals don't stay up late so i can't fucking do it at work
so having a level 50 melmetal is the easiest shit in the world isn't it
>>45506037So?>follow the rocket radarDo what the other anon said instead if you can, don't wait for the balloon.>>45506182Balloons spawn once in intervals of 6 hours (12AM, 6AM and so on) the first time you open the game in that interval. They usually stick around for ~10 mins or so.
>>45506220I did go to rocket areas, but they were just filled with that Arlo bastard.
>>45506220Ffffuck>tfw work 6-6 shiftsG-guess I'll rocket radar on the way home
imagine being such a candylet you don't have 35,520 mewtwo candy ready to max a shadow mewtwo day 1fucking casuals in this thread JESUS CHRIST
>>45506239You're just unlucky then lmao the rocket bosses change their pokestop location daily.
>>45503446AddedPls add me I need Friends for jirachi0782 1700 6118
remember in game of war how if you wanted this certain building you either had to pay real money or spend literally two real time years to research it?that brought that to pokemon goand people are defending it
I dont know what to spend my rare candy on. the current raid bosses are shit and the lake trio will be bad as well right? I could still max a Dialga but I already have so many good dragon attackers
>>45506252are there really people who think they're better people because they are max level and have a shundo shadow mewtwo?
Wow thanks it's fucking nothing, again.
>>45506381If you have a max IV pokemon that is the best of its type go for that.
>>45506398dont have one thats worth spending candy on or isnt maxed already. I still need to find a good Deino but Im not lucky
>>45506397>Wow thanks it's fucking nothing, again.gotta get that gold medal for defending that gym. 8 items is quite nice
>>45506416>dont have one thats worth spending candy on or isnt maxed already.Look into best non-legendaries by type. some of them are comparable. >I still need to find a good Deino but Im not luckyWe're all looking for that hundo Deino
>>45506381You can always bank Rare candy into a legendary without spending it.I have Dialga, Groudon, Mewtwo, etc. all sitting at 100-300 candy even though I'm not investing in any at the moment. It'll come in handy when I can do a lucky trade and finally net that hundo.
If anyone lives near or spoofs to Uxie or Mesprit raids on Tuesday, please add this sad NA player-142398320723
>>45506420Working on it, but it's pretty hard, to be honest. Nearest gym to my house is 3km away, and work takes me all over the city every shift, so there's none i can really lock down repeatedly.
Has anyone here ever gotten a girlfriend from playing this?
>win pvp fight>dude just stands thereFucking
