Yeah, it wasn't a Community day really, there were maybe 20% Slackoth in the wild.  I did get one shiny but I gave up early. Didn't help that for some reason the game also broke completely but only in the main town square, but this is normally the best place during a community day.

Noticed the weather system was missing so wondered if that was part of the problems. I missed the first half hour but then got 2 shinys back to back when I started. Another one about an hour later then a 4th literally as it was ending at 6pm. But yeah the spawns for the most part were dire. 

 

Have caught 2 shiny lileep and 2 shiny Anorith during this Adventure Week but the shiny Onix is proving to be a right bastard. Have done 30 odd Onix tasks, 6 or so Onix raids and caught a good few in the wild. Still  no shiny. :mad:

I already have a decent Slaking in gyms so I took my lad out. He found two shinies, one of which with decent IVs. Was a little gutted when the colors were so muted when fully evolved, but at least he has that unevolved purple Slakoth.

15 more Onix tasks (and one raid, 2 in the wild) before I got my shiny. Was only 72%. Then literally 10 minutes later the person I was with got her 3rd shiny Onix that was 91%. 

 

But then I got a 98% shiny when I did another task later. :D 

 

This adventure week can fuck off now, sick of Lileep and Anorith.

I couldn't have been far off that many myself. Only started keeping track yesterday (31) and today (19) but also took note of catching 34 stacked Onix rewards on Monday morning. Which was the 2nd time I cleared my stack.

I'm going this year, and was there last year.

 

Last year was great (other than a hiccup on Saturday where they locked everyone's account it they used insense until about 2pm!). But being unticketed meant it was queued like crazy on Saturday but you could easily take a big group. There were about 12 from my local group there so could split up, meet up and chat, etc.

 

This year is a Go Fest (rather than Safari zone). So we'll have more stucture. Special research for Jirachi. Habitat areas for different spawns.

 

I enjoy them for the increased shiny chances and unowns.

 

I also went to Safari zone in Stockholm the year before last which was a lovely place to explore after the event on a long weekend.

As for "worth it". Hard to say. As a single 30-something with disposable income it's a good excuse to take some days off work and escape. But it's not cheap really what with travel and accommodation on top of a ticket.

First up... remember that you need a ticket if you want to go. They cannot be purchased on the day.

 

Im going Friday. Staying in Düsseldorf this time and get the train over on the day itself. Got a hotel just round the corner from the station so I can get an easy early train.

Yeah, I'd registered for it and was selected to claim tickets. I did so (for the Thursday) before giving it much thought so now I'm just looking at flights/accommodation etc to see if I can actually go. :lol::doh:

I just got a new Samsung and after a couple of days the device health thing said Pogo crashed a lot, and it recommended I put it in sleep mode when the app isn't active. Did so, didn't think anything else of it.

 

However, today I've had 1.5km left on a candy to walk and after 6000 steps on my Fitbit (2.83 miles) I haven't finished this candy. I've had the phone in my pocket the whole time. I've turned off the sleep thing for the app for now, but has anyway seen similar? Adventure Sync is definitely on - updates toggled it off for 3 of our phones recently, so I periodically check.

10 hours of Pokémon in Dortmund Go Fest today. Walked 30km and got the below rather nice haul of shinys (except the shiny pichu with a party hat). Also added W and ! my set of unowns (just B, H, Z and ? missing now).
