It seems to me that Gible is spawning at the same rate as Gyarados during the last event. Had never seen a Gible before and am currently at 2 in the first 3.5 hours.
I don't know, I've played for the same amount of time and have seen zero Gible but a Gabite, so I'm not complaining. But I'd seen much more Gyarados in the last event in that amount of time.
Walked 46 km today, zero Gible. This could have been such a great event.
Sure, that's the bigger problem, but people eating up all the stupid hat mons and trying to get those shinies is definitely a problem too because clearly Niantic's getting the wrong message. But I was mostly joking.
You're low rank, that ain't gonna work when you get to rank 7. Trust meI think I totally cracked the Battle League.
Before tonight I was 7 for 16, a 43.75% win rate, and those wins were harrowing. I now have a win streak of 8, bringing me to 15 for 24, a 62.5% win rate, and I'm routinely not even bringing out my 3rd Pokemon.
The answer is Seismitoad!
Sure, he's the same typing as Swampert and Whiscash (been seeing lots of those), but regardless of type the small party size and rock-paper-scissors approach often meant, to me, who uses up their shields first.
Seismitoad eats shields. With a combo of Mud Shot and Muddy Water, the quick move fills the charged move in 3-4 hits. I've fought some people who have gone through two shields before they've gotten off a single charge move. Better yet, Muddy Water has status effects - lowered Attack.
