We had raids on-going at our EX Gyms so nothing for us. But on the positive side I got a shiny Geodude and Regice.
I read they tried to fix it by blocking raids from hatching before the invites get send out. What I don't get is that they don't just program a raid to start so that it ends shortly before the invites get send out, to at least minimize the chances that there'll be an active raid. Raid days show they can program a raid to start at a certain time. So why not start an egg on ex gyms at 9:14 when invites get send at 11. Unless they're system is so broken that even that would somehow block the invites.
Gathering enough people to do raids is already bad enough for a lot of people, now having the right roles (tank, healer and dps) to fill groups would make things much worse lol.-Since there are "raids" why not move to traditional raid roles like DPS, tank, and healer? Let the moves of defensive Pokemon tank damage from everyone else in the raid, and support Pokemon can heal and buff. Make whatever tweaks necessary to make straight DPS not the ideal strategy.
The way I'm imagining it, the new roles wouldn't make raids harder, but easier.
That could be interesting, but tbh, that would involve a lot of actual *game design* which is not Niantic's forte. I'd be happy with just a friends list UI overhaul for now lol.The way I'm imagining it, the new roles wouldn't make raids harder, but easier.
Like, if a raid now is a 4-5 person affair, it would still only take 4-5 people just doing straight DPS, but if everyone played roles properly then it could be done with 3-4 instead. Something like that.
The easiest solution would be to just increase the raid timer but then that would encourage people to duo/trio more raids and we can't have that!I was thinking about how so many Pokemon are virtually useless. Would these help?
-Implement a physical/special split. This should double the number of viable Pokemon right?

Oh God no. You shiny hunters need to chill. They'll probably have a 1/10 shiny chance raid day next year, that's certainly enough. We're already looking at 9 dreadful weeks of Swords of Justice in the near future, we don't need to make T5 even more shit with the Regis.I had three last tries tonight (could've done more but there really hasn't been many raids the last two days) and still didn't get a single shiny Regi. :/ Not that it should be a surprise, since apparently all three had the standard 1/20 legendary shiny rate but doing that with three Pokemon for a three day event, which included a paid event, is a complete joke. I have to imagine they're going to bring the Regi's back some time soon because it doesn't really make much sense.
Oh well, at least we get a break now and can just stick with free passes. I've been avoiding Klink for a while because I was more interested in T5's but with three weeks of Coballion, I should be able to get plenty in.
Lol sure. About as likely as Gible and Deino raids.
Same, raid bosses are a mess. If you're gonna put Charizard in at t4 at least let us get shiny Char t1s for the CD day
Oh bugger off. I'm far from a hardcore shiny hunter but I don't see how it's unreasonable to want a reasonable chance of getting them. There's no way they'll get raid days now that they've released their shinies, so the next time we see them will either be back in raids or in the research breakthrough pool where you may as well just write off the shinies immediately. It's not like we can trade for them either, since even dedicated raiders had difficulty getting them.Oh God no. You shiny hunters need to chill.

The way I see it is that shiny Regis were originally planned for next year. They only brought back the Regis for the weekend because of Regigigas. But after all the shit they've gotten last year because of them, they threw the shinies on top to sell the event pass. It's kind of a preview. If you've gotten a shiny during the event, good for you, it sits in your storage box a while longer. If not, you can get it more easily next year.
I was going to go after my 3rd shiny Klink to complete the set. Darn, I guess Alolan Raichu and Exeggutor it is. :/
Yeah, apparently they just added Klink and Shinx back. SMH. I'd love to see what their code base looks like, considering how much goes wrong all the time I have to imagine it's a hacked together mess.
2 years ago, exactly, I found all mine on the beach (clear water Florida). Was during the Halloween event, so a little more boosted on beach spawns points perhaps.
Klink is still there as well. Shinx as well. TheSilphRoad is wrong, and scanners easily confirm it.
The whole reason why Klink and Shinx are available is literally because people complained on the internet. Look at the T1 boss pool, it's huge, that wasn't planned.
The new version that just got released to iOS didn't add anything significant, so I imagine they can flip the switch any day now.
Kyogre is カイオーガ or kai-oh-ga. Though, Japanese doesn't have an "er" sound, so a trailing "a" is usually an "er". So, kai-oh-ger.
