Pokemon Go

Recommended Posts

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.

What day are you going on this year and any suggestions for accommodation there or do you just travel there and back in one day?

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.

Just got a shiny Kyogre for completing a research task :omg::):)

 

Then the universe balanced it out when the only person I know who plays and who I can trade with has given up and deleted the app, just as I have two tasks for 'trade a Pokemon'.

I see the appraisal system has been given a much needed upgrade.

That is excellent. I shouldn't need to be constantly going to a third party app to appraise my Pokémon.

 

Holy fuck, it is actually better than I imagined. You can stay on the appraisal screen and scroll left and right to appraise loads really quickly, favourite the ones you want to keep and then bulk transfer the rest.

you can also search for 0* to 4*, 

 

0* being anything under 50% iv I believe and 4* being 100% 

 

Going to make community day alot easier to get rid of the dross.

I believe this is all becase of me.  

Spoiler

Because I spent £3.99 on Pokegenie the other day to activate bulk scanning of all screenshots

 

Looks a good system, the search thing even more so!

This search string will filter out the crap < 82% IV Mudkip and evos.

Such a useful addition. Shame the Android back button quick catch has been removed though. :(

What about the other quick catch (drag ball selection icon with 1 finger, throw ball with the other, release when pokemon in ball, then run) ?
