I actually found him in the wild not too long ago. They’re still hard to come by just in general though lol.

I've seen like 5 Nidoran total today. It's nothing but Slakoths, which is honestly bullshit. Niantic are dumb for doing a Slakoth redo on top of other events. Yikes.

It's baffling really. There was an entire week with nothing outside of that candy bonus going on, yet they time this during the entire go fest weekend. Not just one day, but the full weekend.

Even when Niantic try to make up for something they manage to ruin everything else - I'm so bored of Slakoth already that I've not even bothered to catch the shinies I've found
All I want is just one shiny Nidoran, is that too much to ask 😫

The best thing about Slakoth CD was the incubator distance bonus. I would have loved that for 3 days. lol

Do these bonuses return for the special CD recap weekend in December?

People on Silph Road are confident that Armored Mewtwo has the same stats as regular. Please let it be so.

I wouldn't take any promo pics as proof or so, a lot of those are usually mock ups. Remember gen 2 Evo Pokemon with items that had reduced candy cost?

But... I am just expecting Armor to just be a costume...

Whilst searching for a shiny Nidoran I found a shiny Seel and a shiny Drowzee, then got a Nidoran from a research task.

RNGesus, sometimes you alright.

I shiny checked over 200 pokemon this morning (and with the new quick catch on Android, I caught most of them), so shiny yet sadly. Oh well. Do got 3 queued up on my quests for Nidorans

Registered 2 new shinies yesterday (Sandshrew & Alolan Rat) but Nidoran still alludes me.

I want that blue Nidoking!

Got like 4 shiny Slakoths now, but no Nido. So done with 7ks too, I can't with these Pichus.

Found an Al Raichu raid though with the help of discord, happy with that.

Third shiny Feebas and a second Scyther today, but no Nidoran yet. At 60 checks total. I didn’t even bother catching a few shiny Slakoth I ran into today, they’re everywhere.

Some people in my local discord posted Dortmund bag screens... obscene. I should go to one of these next year.

Yeah Nidoran spawns have been crap and anecdotally there's been way more Slakoth since yesterday, too many!

Silph Road doesn't accept scanner for their research, but two of the Discords I'm in that uses scanners to report spawns/raids/quests and such actually put up a page with their scanner statistics including shiny rates. These are in some cases like 10x the amount of data that Silph Road researchers tend to input.

Basically Nidoran is at 1/130 or so. Nothing else is boosted for the event other than the pokemon that are already boosted (Feebas, Scyther, etc...).

Was going to an Hippo nest today, discovered event spawns overwrite nest spawns. Only found one Hippo.

I'm so glad we don't have Slakoths lol

Instead I see Nidorans :P

No shiny of anything yet though. Almost at 9 million dust though.

I loved the Alonan event. Of just those got 6 shinies. Still need 2 more geodudes and of course all the others in eggs. I'm going to go back to just do a few at a time now.

I only got 1 Alolan Geodude and I was really hoping to find the big palm but the go fest stuff really nuked my spawns out here.

Yeah that's some really good luck. I got 3 when Horsea was around, but I don't think I'll be replicating that unless I get really lucky tomorrow. With the Alolans turned off, maybe I'll see some more Nidoran. I'm at 70 checks now which really isn't a lot for a species that's supposed to be boosted. A good chunk of that is research too.

My total for the Alolan event: 2 rats, 2 hot dogs, 2 palm trees and 0 kleinstein. 0 out of eggs too but was not expecting anything there.

Send some of your shiny Feebas luck my way please - I was unlucky during the research day when it first came out and been wanting one ever since!

Hah, I was too. Thought it was a great looking shiny and went pretty hard that day but got 0. It's like Niantic's been paying me back ever since. I got a 10cp one through gotcha, then a beefy one during the clamperl day and now the first one through a quest. I don't think this has been confirmed anywhere but I do think Feebas has boosted rates like Aerodactyl/Pineco. If you keep doing the go fest quests you definitely have a shot.
