    Go to shop and click on the little button top right hand corner. You can do it straight after claiming a gym, and then every 21 hours.

    Sitting in a Starbucks on holiday in Poland in order to take over a gym is a perfectly normal thing... Right?
    Awesome, I got 10 coins :cool:

    I found a Krabby in the work toilets.

    I was reluctant to catch it
    I've only been finding pigeots and their evolutions sadly a few rattata but that's it. However I haven't got it on my phone just my tablet so I've caught them all inside my house:lol:

    I'd kill for a krabby.

    Anyone got a good summary/can someone explain? Sounds like Pokemon GO is very different to the original gameboy games.

    So i used to be competitive at this game. I had seven gyms at one point. Seven.

    Now every gym in my area has at least at least one CP 1200, sometimes >CP1600, pokemon in them when my best is 890.

    Well it was fun whilst it lasted!

    You basically run a slavery ring by capturing harmless Pokemon and feeding them powder and pills to make sure they do well in gym battles with other player slaves. And then you sell the useless ones to the professor for more pills and rob pokestops for free pokeballs and ****.

    And by that I mean,
    You go out and find random Pokemon and throw balls at them (no fighting). Get free stuff from pokestops by spinning the sign cause you're that awesome. And you fight Pokemon in gyms by tapping the screen. The way you train and evolve Pokemon is by using dust and candy and you once again have eggs that you have to travel distances with to hatch

    Not if you plan to evolve the Pokemon, at least, but then you'll probably catch a higher one as soon as you've levelled it up .

    Just hit level 20 today, this is my current line up:

    Haha yeah, though I'm expecting that at my level I'm not going to be leveling up fast enough to encounter higher leveled pokemon than the few I maxed upon hitting level 17 - ironically at this stage I'm actually hoping to encounter tons of low CP pokemon so I can catch them easily with cheap pokeballs and transfer them in order to stockpile materials..!

    Went to London today (not for pokemon) and came across a level 900 starmie! Needless to say I was pretty chuffed, it has a ground attack as well which should help add diversity

    One thing I've heard is that naming your eevee's prior to evolving them will dictate what they evolve into... based on a trio of eeveelutions from the anime.. have you come across this / did you do it for your vaporeon? EDIT: confirmed

    Personally I like to imagine Prof. Willow as running a glue factory

    I have very little idea wtf I am doing.

    I am very amused by the fact that my workplace appears to be infested with rats and bugs :rofl:
    I went to Westminster today... and the area was infested with Drowzees :lol:

    A clever political punt, perhaps :holmes:

    The Eevee trick is not 100% (I've seen a few videos of people fail it) but it does seem to have a high success rate. Managed a 1250 Flareon earlier from a 501 Eevee named Pyro.

    Also hatched a 1400 Snorlax earlier from a 10km egg .

    Meanwhile some of us are in the middle of nowhere happy to be hatching a 200 cubone from a 5k and to be catching a <200 kadabra :/

    Ooo good one, do you know what your CP cap is at your level? I've maxed a Hypno and Starmie and they're 1072 and 1061 respectively, when I'm level 17

    I have a 462 Bellsprout whose CP curve is practically maxed already, but I'll be damned if I can find any candies to evolve it :sad:

    Ok so I found an eevee on my way home last night. Can anyone explain which of the three names would be the best choice?
