Ok, so I've been away for months. But I'm hearing a lot of buzz today from randoms and found out I just missed a macro-community day event. What's this about Adventure Sync? The app will now record my distance without the Bluetooth add-on?

The game will now use data from your phone’s health app to log kilometers. You don’t even need to have the game running. Just turn adventure sync on and you’re set.

I’m most excited by a shakeup of the meta that pvp will bring. It’ll also mean a use for low level and low iv mons that have been taking up storage space. I’m not a shiny chaser, I prefer functional differences than aesthetic ones.

"Just Mareep"

😭
If I could, you could have mine. I know the feeling of just wanting the cabbage frog

On a positive side, ended the event pretty well. 4x Metagross, 3x T-Tar, and 3x Dragonite. All 3k plus, with one Dragonite high 2k. This is what my line up has been missing for Gyms and raids.

Can someone give me a link to the friend code spreadsheet (DM me, if needed)? Need to add a few more people for the Celebi quest, but I can't find the link by quoting the OP anymore. Hidden text seems to be broken with the new site layout.

EDIT: Never mind, was able to find it by digging through my own browsing history.

I did actually manage to hatch my first Budew yesterday.

Now I'll just play the waiting game for Sinnoh stones in order to get new mons.

oh how I wish that was true :/
my adventure sync stopped working like 2 weeks ago and nothing I have tried has gotten it working again.

I was getting 30-40KM at work a week and now I have managed 1.2KM in the last 2 weeks with adventure sync :/

Falchion WhiteRabbitEXE I'll be best friends with you fine lads tomorrow. You want to set up a time? Don't need to time it on the dot since I can use a lucky egg immediately after opening the app and it will count. Just FYI I suppose. For me it doesn't matter who opens it.

Did your phones battery saver/power saving mode get turned on?

That always sucks, if Go will support Gen 8 on the other hand they will make great trade material.
Honestly, I don't even need to be able to transfer Pokémon to the main games. I just want something like the Go Parks (or the Wii's My Pokémon Ranch), but for all species. Just let them roam around and interact with each other in 3D.

They have shown off Pokémon Go AR playground, but it’s always been in the context of demoing ARkit. You can interact with any of your caught Pokémon in the AR field. No telling when or if it will actually be available. I think it was described as being a separate app.

The ability to battle with Ultra/Best friends remotely is a nice surprise. The whole "use stardust or candy for an extra charge move" is hella lame, though.

Wonder how liberal they're going to be with the Sinnoh stones.

It all sounded promising until the bullshit "you can spend candy and stardust to get an extra charged move"
What is the point of having that as an option when EVERYONE is going to do it to get the upper hand?

Dumb mechanic that ruins the whole thing IMO

Being able to battle gym leaders is nice and hopefully they expand that aspect of the system.

Also the friend screen appears to be fixed so you don't get thrown back to the top after opening or sending a gift.

I heard it's permanent. I mean, the alternative was having one charged move like we have right now, which would have made battles even dumber.

I wonder how one even counters stuff like Kyogre though. Natural counters like Quagsire only worked because of Water Absorb and Electric immunity. If the damage formula stays the same, then Kyogre and Mewtwo are going to clean house. Not even niche Pokemon like Ludicolo stand a chance.

I guess Alolan Muk is a decent Mewtwo check.

Second charge move sounds cool, especially so you can add some more versatility to Pokemon without needing to entirely power up another one.

The rewards will probably be like in raids. Winning gives you more bundles to receive, but the items themselves are random, so losers can still receive the good stuff like Sinnoh Stones.

The lower capped leagues are a super interesting pospect to me right now, because this gives some fun meta relevance to lower stage evolutions. A 1500 Golem and a 1500 Graveler should be around the same overall stat total, just with a different distribution. These shouldn't just be inherently dominated by low CP final stage evolutions. Specific stat distribution, typing, and movepools will matter.

Hopefully I can make decent meta use of a Buizel now 👀 (god dangit his max cp is 1100 😢)

Permanent would make more sense, I read it as "before a match you can choose to spend stardust and candy to unlock another charged attack" like it was an optional unlockable bonus for that match only.

IGN's video shows them using Garchomp, Regigigas and Smeargle, so they might be coming soon
