    I've got a Vaporeon which is around CP 900. Saw a wild one a week ago but it error'ed before I could try to catch.

    Yea I'm hoping that if this Eevee evolves into a Vaporeon with hydropump.. if that is the case then I'll power up but like you I don't know where I'm going to find the 30-40 Eevee candy I would need to power up?

    I guess I've either got to hatch another eevee for the candy or find a nest.. I think Hyde Park is a nest and a friend mentioned he sees plenty in Leeds..
    If it makes you feel any better, I've never once had a vaporeon with Hydro Pump, only Aqua Tail...
    Although, did hatch an Eevee the other day and evolved it into my new highest CP Pokemon (1677CP Vaporeon). =D

    Although, I have found an Eevee nest near my uni, the housing estate whenever I go through it to get my uni daily, I always seem to happen upon 2-3 a day. Strongest one today was 588CP. Not particularly strong but could be a lot worse...

    Need to find some decent spots in London for when I head down there. It's pretty limited by me for spots, but the spots we do have are pretty well constantly lured.

    Aqua tail wouldn't be the end of the world but I'm not sure if I would make such an effort to power it up?

    The big parks are the obvious places but there are tons of pokestops everywhere.

    Yeah I've seen maps of london with the pokestops highlighted, more thinking where do you get a lot of people playing, and nests.

    Found a good CP Hypno today (1287), highest CP Pokemon found and 3rd highest I have now.
    Don't know IVs but appraisal says decent. So not too bad. =)

    You need to be hatching those 10km eggs and powering stuff up! Have you powered anything yet? Seems like you can add like 200-400 CP from just that alone which is huge.

    What did you decide on your bellsprout in the end?

    I've been hatching eggs left/right/centre and picked up loads of candy for some pokemon from that.

    Now I basically have the 100 candies I need to evolve into a Poliwrath and a Victrebell.

    I could either evolve my current Weepinbell which has IV stats at 40% and is CP612 or I could try to save another 25 candies to evolve a Bellsprout (I have 3 which have stats which are around 90%)?

    Victrebell would be either CP920 if I evolve Weepinbell but if I hold out then for Bellsprout then it would be CP1420.

    I have a bizarre Poliwhirl which has IV stats of 4/15/15 - would make a 1500 Poliwrath or I have a more rounded Poliwag with 13/13/12 but would be a 1400 Poliwrath (+ looking for an extra 25 candies).

    Do I care about strong-ish pokemon or just filling as much of pokedex before I lose interest? I'd probably rarely battle with them (since have Snorlax/Lapras) and the moveset they pick up would be way more important..

    Annoyingly I'm now on 42 candies for Growlith (having hatched my 3rd one) so would only need to find 2 more in the wild to evolve (but I don't think I've seen any wild ones?). Will be really annoyed if I finally get there and it has Bulldoze as the move..

    Just picked up 6 2km eggs which is annoying but I did hatch my first Charmander!

    Congrats on the Charmander. =)
    I think I'll wait a while before evolving. If I'm lucky I'll get a good one from an egg because, I don't have many candy right now for it and so, evolving it would be kind wreckless...
    So, will wait until I get to 125 candy. =)

    Has anyone been playing with the new update where you can get candy from having a buddy pokemon? If so how much do you get from it, haven't been playing much recently but thinking about getting back into it a bit more.

    Basically the candy is seperated into 3 different distances, 1, 3 and 5k per candy. Chart below;

    It doesn't seem that worthwhile tbh, I mean you'd have to walk 575km to evolve a single dratini catch (I'd hope you'd find at least one more in that time, but you see my point) It seems to be a way of boosting starters and snorlax more than anything else.

    It's a nice bonus tbh. You're already walking for eggs and to find stuff so getting a few extra candies along the way helps. Agreed that you can't use it as a means to getting highly evolved/powered stuff.

    So far I've picked up a couple of Lapras candy for a power up and now I've got a Machop as my buddy as I need 1 more candy to evolve into Machoke. Will probably do a Meowth next as I've been 2 candy short of evolving into Persian for a while.

    Just caught a CP 157 Magikarp with perfect IV stats :eek: Shame I'm only at 280 candies..

    Yeah it does seem alright, since you're already walking anyway you might as well get a few extra candy. But it will take a while to get any of the higher level ones to evolve or power up a lot. I think they've missed a trick by not releasing the legendary pokemon before all the initial hype has died down, if they wait too long then they're won't be enough people playing anymore for it to matter.

    Yea it does seem like interest is dropping off.. before I'd lose gyms within 2-5 mins whereas now it can be 20 mins to a day..

    On my way into uni today for a walk and noticed a lure placed down by a couple of kids spawned in a Polywrath.

    Very happy with this one, powered it up a couple of times and is now 1450 something. Should be helpful in taking down gyms Snorlax now. =D
    Although I swear to God when I first saw it, it was 100CP higher than the screenshot...

    A couple of people I know just got their Pokemon Go Plus stuff. It seems pretty good for grinding, but I couldn't bring myself to pay out for it. It doesn't seem that good

    Aww man, I love Poliwrath. So jealous lol. But congrats, he looks very powerful!

    I'm leaving my phone on, it wanders around even when still, so I can get some Zubat candy and get a Golbat. I'm just evolving these guys now, and I'll grind for Power Up candies later.

    Has anyone else found this game boring now? I've caught 125 Pokemon and apart from the raries like Farfetch'd, I've pretty much got all the candies I need to evolve up to 142. What else can I do?


    Also my game crashed when I found a wild 1500+ Charizard the other day so I'm super pissed off
