What time is good for you today? I'm in London so I'm 6 hours ahead of you but I should be able to open any time until 4pm your time (10pm here).
I'm up now. 1PM which is minutes away, 2PM, 3PM your time just let me know.

After that time if you post 2 hours before that should work. Beyond possibly going to the movies at 4 to 5 PM London time I'm having an uneventful day.

I'm waiting for someone in the PST zone to confirm a time so after 6pm London time (under 5 hours from) now would probably be best so that I can link you both with one egg. I'm also having an uneventful day so I should be able to give you enough notice.

Oh man, this Lunar event is amazing for starting a new account. I made it to level 18 in about an hour and a half thanks to the 2x catch bonus stacked with Lucky eggs. Catching a new species nets 1500 to 2000 XP depending on throws and misses.

Found a Combee. So that is another box in the Pokédex ticked. Next targets should be Gliscor and Yanmega, where I'm still missing a bit of candy.

Went out to the cold to a raid. Was there 10 minutes early and couldn't get in due to gps drift. Actually infuriating

Does catching evolved forms in the wild give extra candy?

I caught a Purugly last night (first one), and according to Pokedex I haven't even SEEN a Glameow. But I have 5 candy for them.

Hey all! I'm just starting to get back into Pokemon Go and could use some friends. I'm active daily, and send gifts to my friends daily too. Would love to get some new friends in the game, as I have very few IRL friends that play.

My code is: 3493 2524 0959

Went to a raid and got bodied by a 54000 CP Palkia. Thought I could take it by myself.
Hehe, oops. Legendary raids are Tier 5 and are definitely not soloable. Even Tier 4s can’t be soloed now that they buffed raid bosses. Tier 3 raids are soloable but you need a good amount of high level counters. T1 and T2 are soloable by most players level 20 and up however. Best to stick with those unless you have a group with you.

Yes, Stage 1 evolutions caught in the wild or as raid bosses give 5 candy while Stage 2 evos reward 10 candy. You also get more Stardust for those catches (300 and 500, respectively).

There is a spreadsheet linked in the OP where you can add your code and/or send invites to anyone listed there. I accept any invites I get from fellow ERA posters. 🙂

I'm so glad I keep hatching Chikoritas... They put the Gen 1/2 starters in yet moved out the Gen 3 ones that still have their Community Days approaching. That's the opposite of useful.

Two Meltan boxes down, zero shinies so far. I hate this game.
Then there are those of us who haven't even been able to open one yet. Quit yer whining ;)

Like others have mentioned, 3 for the base evo, 5 for the first stage, and 10 for the second. Many T3 and T4 raids are great to tackle because they offer the second stage Evo. Add a pinap berry to the mix, and you can net 20 candies for a species. Especially good for Machamp and Tyranitar raids if you’re able to solo or duo them.

Oh shit I didn't even consider that. I always thought of Pinap as +3 berries, but if it's x2 that changes things a bit. Hot tip, thanks!

Bah, iOS update was forced. I went from able to see 9 gyms down to 3. Niantic better reverse that with the next patch.

Heh. I wandered like 9k today walking my dog, going downtown for food, checking out a park, etc. Didn’t see any Gen 4 at all besides Bidoof and Buneary.

Got a shiny meltan on my wife's act. I took advantage of the 20k stardust and took it. lol

Oh great, the latest Android patch restores the field of vision back to where it was before the last patch so now I can see the three gyms in my area, instead of just two. Ridiculous that a super obvious bug like that made it into a public release.

How did everyone do with their research breakthroughs last week?

Managed to get myself a duplicate Ho-oh with bang average IV, and on my brand new second account I got another addition to the kennel club.

I've lost track of what has been going-on with research rewards on my main account.

My new account has had Suicune and Zapdos so far.

Hope we get something new soon.

2 and a bit weeks (end of Feb) for the rewards to switch which will also be when the T5 boss changes over however what do they switch to ?

The Pokemon go website and twitter pages have all had 'paint splashes' added to them which is making people think Smeagle however that could be a quest reward rather than your research breakthrough

If they kept going in order the next thing would be Kyogre / Groudon / Rayquazza but i'd expect Ray to be back as a raid boss first (with the chance of a shiny) - they could bore everyone silly and give out the Regis ?
