    Ugh.. **** this stupid game :mad:

    Just hatched my 3rd Onyx FML.

    Would've been happy with half of the potential hatches from 10km egg since need the candy or new to pokedex and instead I get one of the worst pokemon in the game for the third time :facepalm:

    Just annoying when you hatch 3x Scyther, 3x Magmar, 3x Onyx and not the other decent stuff :facepalm:

    Guys, am in a conundrum.
    Evolve a 97%. IV Magikarp currently at 156CP and have 240 candy or power up as much as I can?

    Screen of Magikarp. I reckon I could maybe get it to near 200 if I powered it up completely.

    Evolve it first. It makes no difference whether you power something up pre/post evolution. I've already had 2 Gyarados with ****ing Twister. You don't want to waste your stardust on that ****.

    Also, not played this game in ages. It got very boring and there's nothing incoming to change that, so far as I can tell.

    Just take out the weakest pokemon with one of yours which is a lower CP but has type advantage - run away from the battle after that and you should quickly take out 500 prestige points each time.

    That time where the universe trolls you and gives you an Eevee from a 10k egg, you then almost immediately after hatching get another 10k and think you get a chance of redemption and get this...

    proud moment today of catching a wild Dragonite
    Nice, best moments today were the following;

    1. Finally hatched a starter that wasn't a Bulbasaur (no joke, hatched like 7 bulbasaurs...). Was a squirtle.

    2. Added two new Pokemon to my pokedex (scyther and lickitongue).

    Unfortunately not nearly as good as a dragonite... Only have 40 dratini candy (walked over 100k with my dratini buddy) and my dratini isn't good enough to evolve, is only 531CP and is registered as really good...

    Need more Pokemon... 😥

    Found my first Ekans yesterday - only just realised after like 15 years that Ekans is Snake backwards and Arbok is Kobra (Cobra) backwards :facepalm:

    Caught like 5 other pokemon I've been looking for generally for candies to evolve but some way off still.

    This buddy system is pretty good - used it to power up my Lapras, helped me on my way to Gyarados (which I've now powered to 2100+ CP) and now added enough candies to evolve a Clefairy and Geodude. That should bring my pokedex up to 114 when I finally evolve.

    Had a 600+ CP eevee run away from me yesterday which was the only blot on an otherwise good day.

    I just need to find 2 more eevees to make my Vaporeon my 5th CP 2000+ pokemon.

    I'm also only on 30 dratini candy. Unfortunately both my dragonairs are weak and low CP. Have a dratini which is just under 600 CP which if I magically found 100 dratini candy, would be over 2000 CP.

    So you missed Muk off that list as well? :ahee:

    I'm so tempted to just blow all my stardust and power up decent IV pokemon for a while, but the game really has lost its appeal now. It's difficult to want to play it (which was always the fear with winter)

    I've noticed Eevees are waaaaaay to common around my area (and it kinda annoys me how they come from 10k eggs...). My highest CP Eevee so far has been 658 which I evolved into a 1700+ Flareon. Found a slightly weaker one (around 630) and evolved it into a 1800 and something Vaporeon. =D

    Am going to make my way into town today (there's a boat docking area nearby) and am hoping for some magikarp. Am currently sitting on 272 Magikarp candy and have a 156CP Magikarp (with 97 IVs) I want to evolve into a gyarados...
    Also, you should have come to Bristol Stoke Park, up until only 1 week ago, it was an Ekans nest... =l
    Now the housing estate next to UWE seems to spawn Eevees galore...

    :rofl:

    How much stardust do you have?

    I have around 190k stardust left. I've used about 125k stardust on 5 pokemon.

    I managed to add around 30 pokemon to my pokedex in quick succession which is why I think I've retained some interest..

    Lucky.. are you in London? I could do with another 4-5 eevees to max out my Vaporeon and considering my Arcanine has terrible moves, I wouldn't mind a Flareon with a fire charge move..

    Nvm you're in Bristol which is a bit of a trek

    Gyarados if it has Bite/Hydropump is actually really good.

    396!



    Spent over an hour pacing up and down the river in Bristol city centre (probably looking like an idiot...) and only had to stop because my phone was on about 5% and my bus pass is on an app on my phone... -.-

    Although, did manage to find a good CP Slowpoke (near 800) and a few dratini. =)

    Will it be quicker to walk 4k with magikarp as buddy or find another one?

    Yea after all that effort if the gyarados has twister..
