Shiny new thread.

Our local group had our first socially distant raid t'other day, there were 11 in the lobby and only 3 of us were physically at the gym. The bantz on the message group afterwards was funny though after I introduced them to a new word.

That's the negative side of lockdown, many players are too worried to get within 10m of another. There are some friends I haven't seen in months, and just a few I have seen to have a socially distant chat. Still, mustn't grumble.

@Pikachupoops I got a butterfree from a challenge- can’t remember which one sorry

Just checking in also!

Checking in. Great thread title @DoctorTwo!

I got a Butterfree from a field research task.

Excellent thread title.
I got a zubat last night on incense for flying type.
I'm still getting kanto spawns though, thought we'd get johto ones.
I also caught a 98% machoke last night. I'm enjoying my luck lately through a shiny might be nice. My raiding group get so many!

JuniLoolaPalooza · 08/05/2020 10:40

If you check what's weather boosted and put incense on you should get something.

BaronessBomburst · 08/05/2020 10:53

The event doesn't actually start until 13:00 local time. The spawns will change then making it easier.
And if anyone hadn't sent a gift yet don't! Wait until after 13:00 because then you'll have the chance for a shiny. If you trigger the research before 13:00 you can't get a shiny as they've not been released yet.

And love the thread title!

PanamaPattie · 08/05/2020 11:06

Caught a shiny Chansey last night. No ghost mons anywhere for the challenge.

WitchSharkadder · 08/05/2020 11:27

Checking in. Love the thread title.

I also got a shiny Chandra yesterday, poor thing looks like she's got norovirus!

Pikachupoops · 08/05/2020 11:28

If you trigger the research before 1pm you can't get a shiny? Hmm

Well that's not really fair is it? They shouldn't have released it before then.

NoMoreDickheads · 08/05/2020 11:31

Hi all! I'm up to 'hatch an egg'-- need to walk around a bit lol

SpamandSparkle · 08/05/2020 11:38

Used be argh it's biting me but felt this name was better fit.
Haven't been out for ages due to the fact I broke my shoulder 6 weeks ago and in order to be seen at fracture clinic had to shield for a while. But I'm back now

Fiddlersgreen · 08/05/2020 11:39

Ah that’s annoying about the shiny, wish I’d known!

NoMoreDickheads · 08/05/2020 12:00

@Holdingforgeneralhugs which raid boss did you beat, can you remember? I had hoped to beat a 4* raid with bestie, (L 34) a couple of alts (25 and 33) and myself (37) , but didn't think it was possible.

Blueroses99 · 08/05/2020 12:05

If you trigger the research before 1pm you can't get a shiny? Hmm

I triggered the research by accident by sending a gift. Didn’t even realise that the research had popped into my list. That’s really not fair!

LumpySpacedPrincess · 08/05/2020 12:06


Also caught a shiny Krabby.

Stuck on ghost challenge.

nomoredickheads worth a try. Check out best counters, power everything up. Dragonite with some good ice types might work?

JuniLoolaPalooza · 08/05/2020 13:03

I was in the game at bang on 1pm and all the "nearby" changed to pikachu shadows. Dammit!

JuniLoolaPalooza · 08/05/2020 13:03

We'll remember for next week.

HoldingForGeneralHugs · 08/05/2020 14:38

@NoMoreDickheads i checked with hubby, we are pretty sure it was a Nidoqueen (the days have merged into one struggling to remember anything!)

It is hard doing a 4* just the two of us but we did it. 🤞you could do it with them.

I didnt know that about the research we started playing at 830 😂

TheGriffle · 08/05/2020 15:50

Absolute crap but oh so shiny ones! Not had any for two months then three come along in two days!

Ooh I didn't know there were fellow Pokémon players here!
Am up to ghost-type for Johoto. Triggered it by catching a flying type last night and seeing the little bar shoot across. Didn't even know the new research was there!
Very happy after catching a shiny Giratina yesterday as I failed to get one first time around.
