    Q) When you reach lvl20-21 are the pokemon caught from there on I.e lvl21-lvl40 pretty much the same cp or?
    Surely there must be a cap or?

    So someone set off the fire alarm at like 3.30. Only got sorted at 4 and by then didn't feel like sleeping. But the guy on the night shift also plays Pokemon and used like 4 lures in the last 3 hours on the pokestop which is just in range of the building so I managed to catch like 5 new Pokemon and a bunch of ones I already had for candy

    I think captured pokemon CP's cap at 30, but since you level so slowly after level 21 you might as well power up pokemon caught from that point

    Had a walk today and caught a spearow, tried to transfer it for an extra candy and accidentally evolved it...

    What's worse it was a 10CP one...
    So came out with a 23CP Fearow...

    I did the opposite the other day - evolved my best weedle, went to evolve it again into a beedrill and accidentally transferred it instead

    I reckon I can make about 40,000+ xp from a lucky egg (32 evolutions and multiple new pokemon to pokedex from evolutions) which would take me from level 11 to about level 15.

    Is that enough to be gaining from it or should I be trying for more?

    Guys, is Eevee is most common Pokemon you can get from a 10km egg?
    I'll admit I've only had 2 eggs that size but both have been Eevees.

    Seems like it. I've hatched 6 10km eggs and 3 have been Eevees.

    Both of my 10km eggs to date have been Eevees. Got another one half-way to hatching, really hoping it's something good as it's the first one i've had in a while. Eevees are pretty common in my area. I have so many freakin' Flareons.

    Why is my area suddenly full of Drowzees and Clefairys? Is like Pidgeys and Rattatas no longer exist.

    At least I caught female and male Nidorans. :w00t:

    Hmm well apparently they've cycled the spawn locations around, that might have something to do with it.

    I still have pidgeys coming out my ass :sad:

    I've managed to do around 50 evolutions in a lucky egg duration, if you know what you're evolving beforehand its pretty rapid

    Just catch any and all pidgies and you can get 50 evolutions in a day or so but do not evolve into pidgeots.

    Okay I'll hold back a little longer and try to maximise a bit more! Although I've got 2 lucky eggs now and should get another one at level 15 so perhaps less of an issue at the moment.

    Is it a waste to use a lucky egg with an incense + lure and just try to catch loads of pokemon? Read an article which said that was an alternative option.

    You can easily do both if your phone isn't a potato. Just evolve Pokemon, then when one pops up catch it and continue evolving. I usually do that and manage with the time

    I wish I could get more pidgeys, since they are easier to evolve.

    Incenses and lures merely prompt pokemon spawns as far as I know, you wouldn't get nearly close to constant spawns to capture and the xp is 1/5th that of an evolution so I wouldn't bother if you think about it any time spent catching a pokemon is time you can't be cramming another evolution in

    One time I had ~30 evolutions so I popped a lure to attract pokemon whilst I evolved, and I caught whatever appeared... but its still less efficient than a mass evolution spam

    Hmm interesting. Was just thinking it doesn't make sense to hold on to lucky eggs for some period ages away in the future when I'll be getting my 3rd soon.

    Slow day today so only at 32 evolutions to hand at the moment. Might try to push to 40 tomorrow and then use my first lucky egg.
