You will get another one at Level 25 but they just piss me off. I just get a bunch of crap out of them. It's got to be less than a 10% chance of getting something good.

Re: Pokemon GO (IOS/Android)

Spent $5 to buy 3 incubators and will probably buy an egg or two. With this event, I ended up walking quite a bit in Long Beach tonight and used an egg to quickly level up as I evolved Pokemon I didn't have. There were easily a couple hundred people playing tonight at The Pike.

Caught soooo many rare pokemon this weekend at The Pike in Long Beach. Easily walked a marathon in 2 days and did some major damage on candy, stardust, and my Pokedex. I am hoping they come out with a new event soon as that was a lot of fun.

Re: Pokemon GO (IOS/Android)

Anyone use a music or radio app over Bluetooth in the car while running Pokémon?

I listen to radio from back home in my car and run Pokémon while I'm driving.

Lately when I do that, the volume from the radio app lowers significantly and it didn't do that before the Halloween update.

The Halloween update is temporary. See if it goes back to normal after it's over (still going!!).

Re: Pokemon GO (IOS/Android)

I wish the Halloween stuff would end already, I don't see nearly as many Pidgeys because of it.

I never thought I'd see someone wishing for more Pidgeys. I'll take the variety while we've got it.

The double candy has been really nice, as well, and the Buddy bonus. I walked something like 80 Km with Magicarp to get to 400 candies, then switched over to Snorlax.

Re: Pokemon GO (IOS/Android)

I only want more pidgeys because that's mainly what I use to level. And leveling up and holding gyms is all I really care about nowadays. Getting the new ones for Halloween was nice, but I really have no need for anymore useless meowths, ghastlys, etc. Agree though, that the double candy was indeed nice.

Re: Pokemon GO (IOS/Android)

Yeah, I get that, but the double candy basically makes Meowths and Gastlys the same as Pidgeys at the moment. I went from 26 to 28 during this event from evolving Halloween stuff.

Happened to everyone, sadly. Only annoying thing about the update.

So I think we will be getting another event soon. I am hoping Thanksgiving, but could be Christmas. This game makes about $2 million a day from a report I saw the week before the event. During this event, it made over 100% more in profit with I believe a 3 day gross of over $10 million. For people saying this game is dead, that's far from true with $2 million a day and then a huge increase thanks to the event. I even dropped $5 to hatch some eggs.

Re: Pokemon GO (IOS/Android)

Yeah, I finally spent money (although it was google opinion money), $5 to get some incubators. The payout to hatch a semi-rare pokemon was just too great to pass up this week.

Re: Pokemon GO (IOS/Android)

The event finally ended. I was looking forward to getting a little bit more candy from walking while it was still easier.

I experience the same with podcasts (Overcast app) and earphones.

Damn, being moderately crippled has sucked ... I missed out on a lot. I did manage to snag enough Ghastly and Haunter to evolve a Gengar (or whatever it is), a Cubone into a Marowak, and evolve a Meowth into a Persian.

Professor Willow has discovered that Pidgey & Rattata no longer hatch from Eggs. He also found that Eevee now hatches from 5 km Eggs only.

Hatched a Pidgey yesterday and a Rattata literally 2 minutes ago.

Maybe the next update? I'm hoping it is true since I hate seeing Eevee after walking 10k.

Re: Pokemon GO (IOS/Android)

Egg hatches are determined when you spin the stop, not when you hatch.

FastPokeMap shut down I guess Niantic finally find a way to block their access, this sucks as it was a pretty good resource for searching.

Re: Pokemon GO (IOS/Android)

I was wondering if that was the case because I have had several tell me to try again later today. Bummer.
