So something for those who have a Galaxy phone...Pokemon Go got released onto the Samsung App Store.

Which means using Good Lock + Multistar, you can have 2 instances of the game running at the same time in split screen. Useful for those with multiple accounts and only 1 phone.
Also coins are much cheaper on the Galaxy store. I'm jelly.

Is Poke Genie up to date? Giratina O wasn’t showing up at all for me when it was first released, but after an update it did.

Also, what DanGo mentioned, maybe PikeFenie thinks it’s a Giratina A instead. Though, I don’t think the CPs would line up with that.
It is. And it's probably the case or something. I wish I could export the stats more easily to check against another sim

That's awesome! Might try it out on my raid helper that I haven't touched in months.

Have you updated the firmware? It's pretty straightforward once you do that.

On a different note, I hatched ANOTHER shiny today, this time Pichu. Yay.
It seems to be up to date. I must have gotten a defective one or something then. The “button” is unresponsive, it won’t connect, the screen only stays on for fractions of a second, it disconnects quickly. Got it working once last night and never again. It literally just doesn’t work. It doesn’t help that it has pretty much literally no documentation and shit for feedback though.

I don’t even know if it’s charging since the charger setup is hilariously bad.

I've been reviewing Pokestop Submissions for such a good amount of time this weekend that I actually finished off my queue and hit a wall. Ha!
If I wait like 10ish minutes, usually there are a few more to review.

Which OS are you on - in iOS mine does that if its lost connection with bluetooth the fix is go into *bluetooth* in settings on the phone and unpair the device - then go back into go and re-pair it again

That 'click on the button' and the screen comes up for a second and then vanishes is the normal symptoms of that

I missed out on shiny on the Bulbasaur community day, didn't find one during the repeat day in December and had no luck since - I'm determined to find one during this event, or I'll complain online.

I've been out catching a whole the last few days since I couldn't play for a few days, but zero shiny luck. I did catch a shiny Wynaut while I was on a trip but that's it. I have 4 total shiny hatches now: 2 Togepi, Budew and Wynaut.

In the same boat, got one during the repeat comm day but I want more. Next to Aipom and Psyduck Bulba spawns the most here, but nothing yet.

Same here. Aside from the shiny Lugia I got from the Research Breakthrough this morning, I haven't had any luck. Admittedly, I don't have as much motivation to catch shinies that don't have boosted shiny rates, so I haven't been as active as I was during the Earth Day event (though the shitty weather hasn't helped) but I've still checked a few hundred Aipoms for no results.

How many shiny Magikarp do you guys have and how does that compare to your 'seen' stat?

I'm at 384 seen with 0 shiny. (Hrmm, 384 is not as high as I thought it'd be.) 4 luckies, though.
Fun thing: I've seen 354 Magikarp, but the first one I ever saw was during that first April Fool's event and it was shiny. Literally the first one. Never again. Thank god I give no shits about shiny objects.

237 seen. I snagged my first shiny when they were first launched, then evolved him for the Mew research, and just as I was begrudging not having a shiny Magikarp anymore, I found another one.

My luck is garbage otherwise.

Finally got a shiny Aipom on my alt account.

But I also botched getting the eggs from the walking rewards this week.

For most things outside of an event with boosted rates its normally quoted as 1 out of every 400 or so will be shiny
I have 2 shiny Magikarp from 1454 seen (so I'm probably due another)

No shiny aipom so far, got a shiny psyduck though, I have legit checked 3x as many aipom too lol

why disable them when driving?
not sure about spinning but every time you go out of range when it's trying to catch a pokemon it counts as a fail, it melts through your balls if you're driving like 20+mph

3 shiny Magikarp out of 2063 seen.

Caught the first one on 23 March 2017, which was very close to when it was released I think.

I have GO+ disabled for catching. Above all reasons, I usually don't keep reg pokeballs on me. I just use it for distance GPS & spinning stops

That fixed it, but it’s back to disconnecting every few minutes. Oh well.

The catch rate on these things is stupid low anyway though. It’s like 10:1 for fleeing with my Ball+. Maybe 12:1.

3290 Magikarps, 2 shinies. But, probably at least 500 to 1000 are before shiny release. And then took me about 800 to get my 1st shiny. My last shiny was a little over a year ago.

305 magikarp, 1 shiny.

Still no event shiny even though I’ve been catching a lot in the last few days.

Shiny hatches though... Hatched a shiny Smoochum today. I’ve hatched 3 shinies in a month, one before this not even a week ago. It’s not like I’m burning through incubators either.

Caught a surprise shiny Psyduck on my way home from work yesterday. One of my favourites amongst the currently released 'mon I think :D

72 still missing from the shiny dex but have a few trades lined up. No doubt more will be released before then.

Hatched a shiny Cubone yesterday. Believe that to be my first hatched shiny since I didn't hatch many eggs until Adventure Sync started.

As someone just out to complete the pokedex, shiny pokemon whenever I get them are always a really nice surprise.

Nice bug with lucky Pokémon, they all cost millions to power up now. They're gonna release a fix soon though. There has to be at least one person who accidentally spent million(s) though

How do they keep introducing so many bugs into their game?

Like, do they not have Unit tests? Do they not correctly merge branches when they add features? Working on this game has got to be a nightmare.

So we expect a new gym to be created within the day and want to make sure it's a specific one - the only one with the potential to be an EX Raid gym. Apparently we can try to influence the gym selection by making sure the one we want to be a gym have the most photo likes. Is it possible for any Ingress account to like a portal without having been there?
