Still smashing it daily!

I occasionally have a play. If I'm out and about I may put it on, but I don't go out specifically for it. I was a little disappointed with the new pokemon release. Was hoping for all of them (bar the legendaries) to turn up at once. If they only add a few at a time I doubt theyll get people super excited over it

I live in the middle of nowhere and have a gym that is being smashed daily by GHOSTS ... nobody around for miles, yet it still has battles going on they really need to sort out the cheating

Nerd alert.!

But the comments are just as important - without those, this place would be boring... I take my hat off to you for your effort. You contribute, others just take the deal and say nothing - not even a thank you.

Muchas Gracias ;), Pokemon Go is/was a brilliant way to get people out there, 2016 the year of Pokemon Go.!.

I still play it but have only needed Hitmonchan for about 3 months and still havent got one yet. Until they brought ditto out which took me a day to get. (excluding Region Locked)

I have hatched numerous 10k eggs and still havent got it.

Got this Pikachu yesterday too!

I am still playing every day! Got the Christmas Pikachu this morning

I've got 3 already this morning

Did no one think this was pretty sad? Sad in a way that you would see hundreds of people converging in a town centre, most people on their own yet no one actually spoke to another human? (Unless they went with someone)

I always speak to other collectors - most people I meet are friendly. Might be a location thing.

I'm up to 5 Christmachus (I think there is a spawn site near my work) but all have been low cp.

So far my best is 282, well below my best non-christmas Pikachu, which is a shame as all the Christmas ones are going to end up being fodder for Professor Willow's blender.

It's not the CP that makes it good... appraise it, if you are on team Mystic , a wonder and incredible will give you an idea of how strong it is .... take a look here serebii.net/pok…tml
Also use an online calculator to see the full potential... High Cp does not mean a good evolution...

I usually check Silph Road before blending so I know I've got three really strong normals in the 400s. Unless one of the low cp Christmachus are exceptional, they'll be blended for candy.

I'm on 141/149 been a while since I been on though. Is there a special christmas event like halloween?

Nobody knows yet.... there are a couple of ''know it all'' youtube posters who said that niantic would be doing the 12 days of Christmas starting on the twelfth lol .... the 1st day of pagan Christmas starts an the 25th ... Also it was put out there that all the second generation would be released - this would be a futile move, and would not take into the consideration all of new collectors....
As for the Christmas period , I do hope they will double the XP at that time... I have hundreds of evolutions ready to go

Double stardust and you only had to walk half the distance with your buddy to get a candy

I still play but it annoys me now.

Before releasing Gen 2 they should have completed the original 150 pokemon.
Ditto came out a few weeks ago and they are too common.
they need to fix the tracker.
When they release all Gen 2 Pokemon are you going to get a pokemon storage upgrade?

used to have snorlax/lapras every other day near mine but havent seen one in 4 weeks since they made Krabby's & rhyhorns more powerful.

Nobody knows what they are doing.. they keep their cards close to their chest... I did see a pokédex this morning - where somebody had caught a baby and it added more space automatically..

What Level is everyone on?

Highest CP?

I have upgraded my bag a few times from coins.

I was just saying if they release all gen 2 pokemon (100ish more pokemon) are they going to give you 100 more storage slots for the casual players (those who play the game with there kids etc).

I've caught 9 Christmaschu so far, but only one is a keeper - gives me a total of 4 Pikachu that are higher than 80%.

Level 30
2850 Gyarados
2468 Vaporeon
2216 Flareon

But my favourites are the 2066 & 2050 Snorlax both of whom were caught in the wild!
