    Ok guys, am building up a stack of coins now and was wondering what the best thing to spend them on was. I was thinking the bag storage to increase my storage for pokeballs meaning more exp but, need a decent strategy here because i don't know how far you can increase your storage before you hit your limit. =l
    I'm saving up (slowly- I don't have the time to place/take over more than one gym a day so my coins are creeping up slowly) for a bag upgrade and then I think probably either a bunch of lures or incubator after that.

    What levels do you get you're first 3 lucky eggs at?

    What is the maximum speed you can travel at with the Pokemon egg distance still being counted?
    It works occasionally on the bus for me.

    I believe it is about 20 miles an hour.

    No the No1 thing is Lucky Eggs. (If you want to level up at least). Save a bunch of evolves / egg hatches then throw a lucky egg on, if you hatch 9 eggs in a row that's 9000xp plus 1000xp for each evolve (imagine having like 5 rattatas )

    I've got 2 lucky eggs sat in my bag. No pressing need to buy more - but a larger bag or an incubator or lures would be useful to me.

    Wait until you get to 20+, you'll need as many lucky eggs as you can get. Because of how long the evolutions take, you can only really get around 40/50 evolutions per hour, so about 50k. If it takes 150k/200k per level (as it does at 24/25) then you'll need multiple lucky eggs per level.

    I tend to spend nearly all of my coins on incubators though, personally.

    I'm level 21

    I prefer getting xp for taking over gyms tbh. The lucky egg evolve thing is ok but I'm not overly fussed about racing to the highest level. I'd rather find more pokemon and have a bigger bag to keep supplies in.

    Eh, still only 75k per level so you can do nearly the entire level with a single lucky egg. Personally wouldn't bother with a bag upgrade, don't really see the need for it.

    I live right by a gym and this tiny bit of space between the white line and the pole of the gym means that the gym is considered too far away... Name:  1471199574781.jpg

    And most of the time even if the GPS makes me wander around a bit, it goes to the other side or stops just right there.

    I don't normally advocate this sort of thing but it's pretty cool. Download Bluestacks, it allows you to play the game on your PC!

    It comes with a built in Fake GPS app as well (since it can't detect location) so you can pretty much hang out anywhere and catch any Pokemon you want. I recommend not jumping too far as it can get you banned (i.e. London to New York) but just anywhere within the city should be fine!

    Here i am in New York. I caught Exeggecute(sp?), Tauros and Dodrio (the one in the screenshot) by this method. Never see these kinds of Pokemon in London lol

    Guys, am I the only one who's experienced a sharp decrease in the number of drowzees around?
    Haven't caught one in around 4-5 days...
    Come to Newcastle, they're everywhere. According to some tracker page it's the second most common Pokemon in the city after Pidgey.

    I've only heard of soft bans so far. I did it just for a bit of fun tbh, it gets boring when you're doing it from home lol
