I'm definitely focused on filling up my pokedex more than training my Pokemon/fighting the gyms. I'm looking for the trade items but they appear to be quite rare! I've hit up many pokestops but they haven't dropped any so I'm starting to speculate whether they drop them or not! Perhaps they're just rare.
Anyone been playing 'Go? I've gotten enough candies for Blastoise! I'm only level 25 so I'm waiting until later so I can get a more powerful one. The Magikarp have been really speeding up my progress to Gyarados too! Also Poliwag! Hooray!
I don't have a smart phone so haven't been able to partake in any of this activity D: But I heard the 2nd Gen just came out yes? How is that? I'm also just curious about how this is going as I've heard basically nothing about it all winter *not surprised*

I'm enjoying pokemon go with 2nd gen a lot. Though I have enough swineub to last me a life time. They Also have a shiny magickarp event ok right now! there's also more place exclusive pokemon. Also didn't know a lot of gen 2 pokemon go evos later on in like gen 5...
Hmmm yeah a lot of the Johto Pokemon seem kind of weak, but maybe I'm just imagining it? A lot of gen II Pokemon really do suck though so I'm not surprised. I'm glad that I have Octillery but I doubt I'll make enough Magikarp candies to make it to Gyarados before the event closes.
One thing is that Skarmory, Sneasel, Swinub, and Murkrow are really common, which is weird since they were really rare in the games? Idk what other Pokemon they would replace them with though since gen II only came out with 100.
I have been playing it a lot more now that I have a decent phone. I am over halfway towards level 24 and I recently got the gold Kanto medal thanks to a recent event. There is another event going on tomorrow with Mareep but even when there is no events going on a decent number of people still play. I still hope they have a Beldum or Bagon day soon as so far I have had no luck in getting either so far.
So, I finally got started on this. Surprisingly enjoyable... I actually found myself taking detours around the city for once. Also had perhaps the most bizarre yet hilarious experience while I was out: seeing a group of naturists cycling in their birthday suits. I didn't realise things like this happened outside. Outside is weird, but kinda fun.
Level 9 right now (though to be fair I did actually start at like 3 or something because I experimented with it like two years ago); all the Hoenn stuff is starting to drive me crazy though. I should've joined earlier... when better gens were all we had.
I managed to catch a few Alolan Exeggutor while they were spawning and I will be putting them on LGPE as soon as I can so poor Dragonite will not be my only dragon type. Starting today there is a water themed event with a bunch of water types spawning at a higher rate. I am hoping to get some Horsea so I can evolve my Seadra into Kingdra. Getting some Magikarp for the mew quest would be nice as well though I do not have that part of the quest unlocked yet. Of all the water types though I would kill to get a Lapras but you need to get super lucky to spawn one even during this event.
Also on June 16th Larvitar is going to be the community day Pokemon so if luck is on my side I should finally be able to get a Tyranitar. I already have 54 Larvitar candy and a Pupitar so I need to catch 18 of them not counting bonus candies in order to finally get a Tyranitar.
So I only just finally downloaded this app the other week as well as my husband and it's so addicting. I have a reason to go outside now xP We go outside and just spend hours trolling around town takin' gyms and capturing stuff that we then spend an hour trading to each other for the extra candies, haha.
Managed to participate in the special Eevee event and got a few shinies but they were all really low power sadly D: And caught Raikou for this month's legendary ^^ So sad I missed out on Zapdos earlier though.
There is a paychuc type event going on right now and rumors of a ghost type event for Halloween. I managed to recently earn the gold medals for capturing fairy and psychic types and now I am working on dark types but I do need more ghosts so I hope the Halloween rumors are true. Above all I could really use a dragon type event that really boosts dragon spawns considerably so I could make more progress towards getting the silver dragon medal.
Going to revive this semi-old thread, as I have begun playing this, now I have (finally) got myself a smartphone. And though I have not walked much (I think my record is 6km for a week) I'm enjoying it and having fun. Preparing for the clamperl event tomorrow which is my first. I'm getting in to gym battles and doing okay, and I really like that my small town has woken up a bit, when it comes to pokemon go
I could use some more friends though as I only have one, and I have been told that you can get new ones with the friend code. If anyone wants to help me, my code is: 4605 0835 5204
