Because friendship and trading has just been launched and t'other thread is almost full!

MonaChopsis Thu 21-Jun-18 21:31:21

Repeating post in the new thread! Thanks for setting it up.

I am also happy to give out my code, or I will be when I get one! (Am currently level 30). I don't know any other players in real life so am not super bothered about only giving to people I know!!

BSJohnson Thu 21-Jun-18 21:34:58

Also happy to send gifts to players in the sticks who run short of balls/revives etc smile

WhatToDoAboutWailmerGoneRogue Thu 21-Jun-18 21:35:38

I probably won’t be giving out my code; we have a large raid group for a small town and there’s a friends cap. So there is little point for me personally giving it out.

Since it’s a new thread, remember guys: If you are giving your trainer code out and sending gifts, you will be sharing your location. If you’re okay with that, go ahead (but be careful!).

WhatToDoAboutWailmerGoneRogue Thu 21-Jun-18 21:38:17

Also if you’re giving out your trainer code, you will be giving out your Pokémon Go trainer name and giving your friends full access to all information on your catches and achievements as well.

So it’s not just location sharing!

Again, it’s fine if you want to do that, but everyone should be aware of the information they’ll be giving out if they go ahead.

SneakyGremlins Thu 21-Jun-18 21:43:44

Can you pick what to put in gifts to others?

Friends can see what you've caught? Cool!

WhatToDoAboutWailmerGoneRogue Thu 21-Jun-18 21:47:30

Can you pick what to put in gifts to others?

SneakyGremlins Nope. You get gift boxes from PokeStops, random chance like any other item, and then you send it to a friend.

What comes out is random. You’re hoping for an Alolan egg, though, as those eggs will be the only way to obtain those Alolan Pokemon.

WhatToDoAboutWailmerGoneRogue Thu 21-Jun-18 21:50:14

A couple of images showing what Alolan eggs look like and how gifts appear in your bag.

TakeAChanseyOnMe Thu 21-Jun-18 21:50:27

I also don’t have any “real life” Poke-friends but I’ve just joined the local FB group so that may change!

I live in a major city so giving gifts from e.g. major train station, object on main shopping street, wouldn’t be giving much away.

I'm walking a ttar AND a just caught a wailer. Ssssh! It's hush hush. wink

With a friends cap of 200, I'm happy hookah up with a few randomers too.

BSJohnson Thu 21-Jun-18 21:54:09

Hooking, obv. Never fancied a hookah.

BSJohnson Thu 21-Jun-18 21:55:13

My top tip:

You'll only get an Alolan egg in a gift sent to you IF you already have a gap for it in your egg storage.

NotARegularPenguin Thu 21-Jun-18 22:00:07

Will you be able to find people close to you who are open to swaps, etc? I don’t know anyone who plays but am happy to bumble round a city trying to swap stuff with people nearby.

Eggzandbacon Thu 21-Jun-18 22:00:46

Ooh I want pressies!! I don’t care who sees my account to be honest. If the nearest location is a pokestop that’s fine by me

WhatToDoAboutWailmerGoneRogue Thu 21-Jun-18 22:03:06

BSJohnson confused Not everyone wants to give out their location or their trainer name.

We have a fair few lurkers on this thread as well as casual players who may have missed all the information that will be shared if you give your trainer code out.

Like I said, it’s fine if you’re happy to give that info out, but not everyone will be, and I would hate to think anyone gets caught out. Especially since we don’t know whether you’ll be able to remove friends.

There’s nothing wrong with a fair warning; no need for any mocking confused

SneakyGremlins Thu 21-Jun-18 22:04:36

Eggz Wanna send each other Eggz?

WhatToDoAboutWailmerGoneRogue Thu 21-Jun-18 22:05:23

NotARegularPenguin You probably won’t want to. You need to be friends to trade, which is easy, but the stardust cost is astronomical if your friendship level is low.

If you’re just friends, it will cost 1 million stardust to trade legendaries, shinies, or any Pokemon not yet in your PokeDex.

For best friends (after 90 days), that cost is reduced to 40,000 stardust.

lokijet Thu 21-Jun-18 22:06:30

do you have to be level 40?

ps can i share my disappointment that my son and i both got ex raid passes but he will be at school and i will be in another city for work (no one in real life understands my pain...)

WhatToDoAboutWailmerGoneRogue Thu 21-Jun-18 22:10:32

do you have to be level 40?

lokijet At the moment. They’re doing a gradual rollout like they did with raids to avoid a server crash.

I think it was only a few days last time before everyone got access.

BSJohnson Thu 21-Jun-18 22:12:01

My local group is suggesting level 35 players will be getting the friends element on Sat 23rd...

BSJohnson Thu 21-Jun-18 22:15:45

I am enjoying getting sent gifts (reminds me of when I used to play animal crossing)

but feeling guilty about lazing at home rather than getting out, spinning stops, and reciprocating!

Efferlunt Thu 21-Jun-18 22:19:21

Hi all. Checking in! Haven’t played much in the last couple of days as the app kept glitching and wouldn’t let me in. Very annoying. See I’ve missed lots. Will have to read up on friends thing.

WhatToDoAboutWailmerGoneRogue Thu 21-Jun-18 22:29:12

Confirmed dates for when everyone will get trading and friendship smile

PickAChew Thu 21-Jun-18 22:29:32

Eggzandbacon Thu 21-Jun-18 22:37:39

Glad I only have to wait a few days, have a Pokemon friend who is over 40 and annoyed he gets to play before me.
