    I don't think that's a thing, currently . Each Pokemon would have to have 40 columns for the max CP, it would be a mess! Plus the max CP list comes directly from the coding of the game, nobody has looked for the max CP at each level afaik.


    Egg Pokemon will always hatch at a maximum of level 20 and wild Pokemon can be caught at a maximum of level 30, but the maximum level itself is 40. So from 30 onwards you can only power up your Pokemon for a new max CP.
    Did not know about the egg level cap being 20.

    Update on the Lapras - managed 7 powerups until I reached my level cap and now my Lapras is CP 1991 (little annoyed I wasn't able to break the 2k mark). Still got candies for 2 more upgrades so should be able to push it on later.

    Anyone know when the CP cap increases? Is it only at each new level or does it happen at halfway through a level too?

    CP cap changes every level - weird that I didn't get a notification for you quoting me .

    Hmm something must be up with TSR as I didn't get a notification from your quote either. Was hoping it might be every half level (since IV calculators refer to 0.5 levels at points). Ah well.. I'll just have to wait a while before I can do one my power up to get my Lapras past 2k.

    Incidentally, the Lapras hatched from the 10k egg that I put in the incubator for which I swapped my 150 coins for so now I feel like it was a good investment

    So went for a slow amble for an hour..

    3.5km with 45 pokemon caught and added about 10k XP. Used 2 incense in that time.. not many exciting stuff caught and only 6 pidgey!

    Can't see myself playing past level 25 to be honest, feels like too much of a grind and I don't think I have the time/patience for it.

    On that note, what are people's goals?
    I know some people are trying to fill their pokedex as much as possible. Others just want to get as high in trainer level as they can and then lastly you have those who just want a team of high CP pokemon (later two often combine).

    Caught this mother****er earlier today.



    Used up at least 30 ultra balls, ran out and then caught it in a regular Pokeball lol.

    I was so annoyed that I wasted those precious ultra balls that I raged and levelled it up to 1600+ CP... but it still sucks omg and i'm down 30 dratini candy. Can't complain about finding it but wow the CPs I've found have been shocking

    Impressive to catch a dragonite but probably a waste of stardust/candy. I think a level 500/600 dratini would evolve into a 2,000+ Dragonite?

    Has anyone else found red gyms glitching? I've found the third red gym which just crashing whenever I try to look at the gym or battle. Not had it for any other colour gyms yet though..

    I'd be interesting to see people's stats for the following:

    - Jogger
    - Collector
    - Breeder
    - Backpacker

    Would leave the house but get nagged by parents... =l

    Will say this app I have is awesome for finding pokemon within an area of 300m though. =D

    Wow you are a real jogger...to be fair, I cycle a lot and it counts max 10% of distance covered if at all. Today I did a 67km tour and after 20 gave up either my phone closed the app or it picked up nothing so I stopped trying to get it to work.

    I walk 2-3 km to the train station and back every day on a workday so that's why. Lots of Pokestops on the way so my egg stash is replenished too

    How did you manage to hatch so many eggs?...
    Not hatched many myself and have walked further than you Tom?

    Tbh you've hardly hatch any for your distance walked? I've walked 103km and hatched 48 eggs.

    I expect either he's hatched loads of 2k eggs and/or he bought extra egg incubators which has let him hatch multiple at a time?

    I've got 8x 5k eggs and I'm tempted with a few more egg incubators to help move them along..

    I would guess London or some other large city with dozens of stops really close

    I have two pokestops at work.

    I only have I guess a decent amount of distance in comparison, because my building makes the GPS glitch so it adds distance even though I am sitting. So I bet it is fairly easy to rack up pokestops without distance if one is lucky.

    Also, if you live in the city, tend to be a lot more pokestops around than outside.
