    I've heard very good things, but it's iPhone only atm and the website doesn't work anymore, so I've not had a chance to use it :/.
    Ah that explains why I couldn't find it on Google play store..

    Managed to finally edge to level 23 (and boosted my Lapras past 2k now).

    Hatched a Hitmonchan from my 10k egg. Is a Snorlax too much to ask for?

    Got 150 coins again (somehow been able to take 2 gyms in quick succession a day for the past week). I think I'll go for another egg incubator since I've still got 2 lucky eggs. Need another 20 evolutions before I can make a jump!

    Ugh so now I've seen a wild Magmar, Vaporeon and Mr Mime but each time I've tried to click them to try and catch, I get an error message and those pokemon disappear from the map.

    That happens semi-regularly to me.
    I just close and reopen the app. And they then appear again. =)

    Damn didn't even think of that. I just assumed I saw them at the last second before the spawn time expired and so the clicking resulted in an error.

    Ugh slowly crawling towards using my next lucky egg. On around 53 evolutions but want 12 more!

    Ok, finally about to run out of 5k eggs now.
    All my eggs (except the one in incubator) are in the screenshot and am happy with that lot. Might even be able to get through half of them tomorrow. =D

    Nice! I've had between 6-8 5k eggs for ages now

    About to break my other incubator in a few km so might buy another one.. up to 190 coins again. I've found 4 gyms near where I live and I can usually take and hold 2 of them to collect coins.

    Ok managed to hatch a couple of eggs and am 8/10k towards the 10k egg. Hatched a Vulpix and a Drowzee today.

    The rain put a stop to my planned hike... Typical how when I want to walk, the first time it rains like this in MONTHS...

    Guys is it just me or are Great Balls and Ultra Balls rare as ****? I'm always getting spammed with normal balls, potions and revives

    I rarely ever get them and it annoys me because I hardly get more than 20 Ultra balls at one time since I usually bump into rare pokemon so I use them up. But even then, I'd probably only get an ultra ball like once every 20 pokestops? I know they're good items but surely the rates can't be that bad

    I think that's kinda the point?
    Did watch a vid and a guy said once he reached level 30, he started getting more great balls than pokeballs?

    Luck hasn't been great with 10k eggs. Got 2 dratini's ( We have spawners, I think near our place since there's lots of them). The only good one is Electabuzz. And then I got trolled by a Jynx. To be fair, I kinda stopped playing the game now since by interest has dwindled.

    Why couldn't it be something useful like a dratini nest or a starter nest...
