Perfect thread name for the next CD!

I need advice about whether or not to change team?

Currently instinct. Everyone else in my village seems to be blue. I live next door to a gym and can hit it from my bed! I take it every morning and the blues take it back.

I generally get 50 coins a day but use up a lot of revives and potions. So my initial thought is that being blue would be better.

But I've never seen the gym be taken by the red team. A handful of times another yellow person has joined me. But very sporadic.

I'm worried if the gym stayed blue all the time I wouldn't get 50 coins a day. am I right in thinking that you'd only get coins when someone either kicks you out or your mon runs out of energy which can take a few days? And that the max you'd get is 50 coins, so I might only get 50 coins even though I was in a gym for 3 days?

Yes max of 50 coins a day

MrsJamin Sat 23-Feb-19 18:25:32

I'd stay yellow if i were you @NicoAndTheNiners, the blues probably like that you chuck them out so that they can get the poke coins too!
@mumpops @catontherun @knittingmamma can we coordinegg tomorrow, say around 7.30-8 or is that too early? Alternatively I've found it works if you put an egg on if you do it immediately as you login if that's too early.

Knittingmamma Sat 23-Feb-19 18:31:40

@MrsJamin that's fine - I might not be around that early but will make sure to pop on an egg as soon as I am on!

PickAChew Sat 23-Feb-19 18:46:44

I'd stay yellow. You might get some defections from blue players sick of finding gyms full.

NicoAndTheNiners The only way your Pokemon leaves a gym is if someone physically battles it and kicks your Pokemon out.

It does not come out on its own through lack of motivation.

People have been known to stay in gyms for months, even over a year, if nobody else takes that gym. And no matter how long you’ve been in, the max you get a day is 50. And if you’ve hit that 50 and a Pokemon comes out of a gym it’s been in a year, you get nothing.

SirNilsOlav Sat 23-Feb-19 18:48:04

Yeah it sounds like if you didn't take the gym it probably wouldn't change hands much Nico so you might be stuck in it for days not getting coins, on top of having spent 1000 to change

NicoAndTheNiners Sat 23-Feb-19 18:58:13

Thanks, will stay yellow for sure then.

MrsFoxPlus4 Sat 23-Feb-19 19:13:06

Oh and Nico you said you were using lots of potions, I follow some youtubers Pokemon ones and they let you put your code in the comments. Iv 180 friends and that’s how I get the majority of my eggs & potionsZ

NicoAndTheNiners Sat 23-Feb-19 19:21:47

Thanks, will try that to get more friends.

Soubriquet Sat 23-Feb-19 19:38:06

Showing off my only perfect IV Pokemon I’ve got so far grin

Urgh2019 Sat 23-Feb-19 19:58:23

Ooh I’ve never had a perfect one!

pottypotamus Sat 23-Feb-19 20:43:14

WitchSharkadder Sat 23-Feb-19 20:58:10

I have 13 perfect 100% IV Pokemon. My best ones are Tyrannitar and Machamp smile

MrsJamin Sat 23-Feb-19 21:17:52

I've got 10 perfect IV mons - many of them don't have a high level but I love them anyway! Waiting for the new eevolutions to evolve my eevee into something special.

Bimblepops Sat 23-Feb-19 21:45:56

@MrsJamin 8am is good for me!

MrsJamin Sat 23-Feb-19 21:47:06

@Bimblepops super, lets confirm eggs on at 8 and then I can open your gift.

Bimblepops Sat 23-Feb-19 21:48:52

Very annoyingly I was away from all Pokestops and gyms for the entirety of Community Day, so haven’t got a single Clampearl. I’m very envious of you all.

bettytaghetti Sat 23-Feb-19 23:28:09

Thanks for the new thread Witch although not thanking you for the crummy earworm! grin

Nico I would advise you to stay yellow (actually I would advise you to change to red and join a decent team!), purely from the coins aspect as others have pointed out.
As you can reach a gym from inside your home, have you thought about using another device such as an iPad or old phone to set up another account which you could build up to best friends, which would then give you extra bonuses for raiding with, since you're losing out by being the only yellow in the village. (Try reading that without a welsh accent!)

PickAChew Sat 23-Feb-19 23:41:52

18 plus a recent impostor!

MrsFoxPlus4 Sun 24-Feb-19 00:06:57

Can we get farfetch in the wild here? I swear I saw it’s shadow before my nearby refreshed!

Efferlunt Sun 24-Feb-19 01:24:31

I don’t think you can get a far fetched in the wild over here.

Was lucky today only got two clampearl tasks but one was a shiny.
