    Anyone else excited they've announced Battle and Trade features recently?
    I know it was shown in the trailer (well, I know trading was anyway...) but, battles I didn't quite expect because I didn't think Smartphones would be capable of it. =l

    I wonder if Iphone and Android software is cross compatible for trading and battling?

    Not hugely.... I can't see how it can be anything more than each player frantically tapping away on their screen :erm:

    Guys, when you place a pokemon in a gym and if your gym is beaten, what happens to your pokemon you placed in there?

    Does it automatically appear in your storage again or do you have to go retrieve it?
    Or do you lose it forever?!

    Personally, I would be against evolving until having higher level of your character. If you take a closer look, the CP of a pokemon is different with each level which means it is pointless to evolve at early stage of the game since you will eventually catch better unevolved ones later in the game. But it is up to you whether you want to play the game competitively or just enjoy the gameplay.

    Catch 1 more pidgey and they you should have 13x3 candies = 39 + trading in 9 which gets you to 48 pidgey candies. You can then evolve 4 pidgey (require 12 candy each to evolve) and there's 2000xp (500x4) for you

    At least I think that's how it works..

    Should I invest more dust into a single pokemon or should I focus on getting multiple up in CP? I cant decide which would be better :/

    * I agree mostly but not when it comes to Pidgeys. There is no point holding onto Pidgey candies if you can catch at least 10 of them every day. I would assume the trainer of these Pidgeys is a low level, so the XP will be more useful to them as they'll level up faster. I wouldn't use Stardust to power them up yet though.

    Personal preference though, like you say.

    Well, I could...

    Or I could just have an army of Pidgeys!

    No, I don't train them. I've not figured out how to do that yet.

    You should still horde it so you have like 100 pidgeys to evolve all at once with a lucky egg, same with ratata

    How do you get the eggs? I walk at least 10km a day during the work week so I could hatch loads of them and charge my phone in between walks when I'm in the office.

    Started playing properly last night, so far I've got: 2 Squirtles, Nidoran(m), Zubat, Drowsee, Eevee, Weedle, Shellder, Nidoran(f), Paras, Meowth, Rattatta, Spearow, Goldeen, Caterpie, Pidgey, Venonat and Seaking

    I've transferred all my duplicates for candy and then used power up from it. Apart from Squirtle, I want to keep two of those because they're cool

    You sometimes get eggs from pokestops so just use more of those. The strategy is to hoard Pokemon and candies until you get a free lucky egg then mass evolve as many Pokemon as you can and transfer the duplicates.

    Powering up is useless until you're like level 20 because you catch higher cp Pokemon as you level up. So you may power up one to 200cp and then catch the same one with 300

    Leaves mean nothing as far as general consensus goes - the footprints are supposed to be the guide for finding pokemon nearby (but are bugged at present)
