I'm being firm - no raids today if it's raining. If it's not raining then I need a potion hunt.

Good title!

Not had a chance to try for Zapdos so far - too much going on with work this week. Hope others are having some luck. I must go back and look at the last bit of last thread.

I'm yet to see anyone else at a single raid, have now given up the hope of ever having a legendary 😩

Icouldbeknitting Wed 09-Aug-17 09:11:43

Over a couple of weeks I've gone from "there's no-one out here but me" to being part of a 15 strong team yesterday afternoon. An eight year old trainer declared it to be the best day of his life, ever. He'd caught a Zapdos with us in the morning and more or less the same people turned up to a Lugia in the afternoon and he caught that too. His mum had found the raid group chat the day before and on his first meet up with us he caught a Moltres.

I have to accept now that Facebook is useful for something.

DoctorTwo. That's a terrible thread title but it made me laugh .....😂😂😂

DeepfriedPizza Wed 09-Aug-17 09:24:49

I've got 234 caught 236 seen (moltres and heracross) not sure what else I need apart from legendaries.

Any ideas how many is max?

Over the last couple of weeks I've gone from 'there's no one out there but me' to realising it is really is mostly just me 😂. Legendary raids right in my town centre attract me and no one else. Ive been patient but the maximum number of other players has been two. Who were as surprised to see me as I was to see them.

Not even the spoofers turn up wink

Just marking my spot.

No legendaries here. Nobody seems to turn up to the raids where I live. To be honest, I don't even care. I have gone off pogo lately. To me, the game feels a bit stagnant.

I did reach my gold medal for dark pokemon today. Apparently there's a bonus for doing that. No idea what it is though.

Just coming over from the other thread - thought I better post so I don't lose it!

I'm at work today so no pokemoning for me 😒 the 2 hour window I had to Zapdos hunt yesterday was the only 2 hours no legendary raids happened in my city yesterday so still not had a crack at it! Planning on hitting the raids all day on my day off tomorrow instead, so fingers crossed!

KakunaRattata Wed 09-Aug-17 10:36:45

Reading back through the thread I feel very green! I've always just collected them until recently so have no idea what's good or bad in a gym or what IVs mean! I've got a lot of reading to do!

Gen I has 151 Pokemon, Gen II has 100, so there's 251 overall.

There are 5 Legendaries in Gen I (Articuno, Moltres, Zapdos - released - and Mew and Mewtwo - not yet released) and 4 regionals (Taurus, Kangaskhan, Mr Mime and Farfetch'd).

There are 6 Legendaries in Gen 2 (Lugia - released - and Ho-Oh, Celebi and legendary dogs Entei, Raikou and Suicune - none of these are released yet). Gen II also has two regionals (Heracross and Corsola).

And Gen II also consists of two Pokemon not yet in the game: Delibird and Smeargle smile

It means you get a +3 catch bonus for all future dark Pokemon you catch. You can read about the bonus here: www.eurogamer.net/articles/2016-10-13-pokemon-go-catch-bonus-medals-list

KakunaRattata If you just want to collect them then it doesn't matter what their CPs or IVs are. If you want to battle with them though, that's when you need to know more grin

DeepfriedPizza Wed 09-Aug-17 11:25:01

WhatToDoAboutThis2017 thanks for that

I'd forgotten to evolve my bayleef so I am now up to 235 captured which is all I can do apart from legendaries

Not sure what to put as my buddy now

WhatToDoAboutThis2017 Wed 09-Aug-17 11:31:52

DeepfriedPizza No worries smile

235 captured means you're missing 16. There are 11 Legendaries, but you say you've got Moltres so that's 10 for you to get (7 not yet released).

The other 6 spaces, 2 are taken up by Delibird and Smeargle as they're not in game, so that leaves 4 regionals you haven't got; you've got Heracross and presumably Mr Mime, but I don't know which others.

WhatToDoAboutThis2017 Wed 09-Aug-17 11:56:25

(However if you've got one of the remaining four regionals - Corsola, Taurus, Kangaskhan and Farfetch'd - you're probably missing Unown).

DeepfriedPizza Wed 09-Aug-17 11:58:14

No, I've got articuno, Mr Mime and Kangaskhan

My "seen" number is 237 because of bloody moltres and forever escaping the pokeballs and seeing heracross in a gym

DeepfriedPizza Wed 09-Aug-17 11:59:38

I've got unown too.

WhatToDoAboutThis2017 Wed 09-Aug-17 12:11:51

DeepfriedPizza Oh when you mentions Heracross and Moltres earlier, I thought that meant those were the ones you'd got.

So with 16 for you to get, that's still 10 Legendaries to get as you have Articuno.

The other 6 spaces, two are by Smeargle and Delibird. So the four others you haven't got are Heracross, Corsola, Taurus and Farfetch'd.

Icouldbeknitting Wed 09-Aug-17 12:14:25

I had to look to see what I was on, 236/239. I have the full set of legendary birds and if I had a day out to catch Unown and Kangaskhan then I think that is all I can get without the regionals.

There's a Pikachu event in Japan and they have shiny Pikachu.

Hope we get it soon.

KakunaRattata Wed 09-Aug-17 12:43:11

I was just reading that eyebrows.

whattodo ds has always battled with them but I'm just starting to, so do need to find all these things out!

WhatToDoAboutThis2017 Wed 09-Aug-17 12:54:05

eyebrowsonfleek Yes, in very jealous! Desperately want a shiny Pikachu grin

WhatToDoAboutThis2017 Wed 09-Aug-17 12:57:46

You want high CP, best appraisal. No point with a high CP if it's got a bad appraisal/poor IVs. You can use PokeGenie (an app) to check the IVs; you want high 80s at least smile

Natsku Wed 09-Aug-17 13:20:45

Still nobody else at any legendary raids, really don't have a chance of getting on.
