    Finally after 13, I got a good one! Waited patiently all this time not powering up any of my trash ones.

    500k from level 40! Happening this week for sure! 2 Lunatones as well! Only missing 6 mons across the world, 3 of which are probably easy if I opt to visit Texas & Europe this year.

    1st one yesterday was due to a report in my neighborhood on my local discord. Was
    already out the door to work, so booked it like hell to get to it. 2nd one today was actually on my radar when I woke up. 3 days ago, saw one briefly on my radar that vanished. Walked 10min (each way) to check it out, but it was gone. Heard from a friend last weekend he saw one 2 blocks away from my house one morning (but didn’t report it & I completely missed it). It’s around. Just need good sharing of info & a little bit of luck in timing.

    Yea. Nothing crazy yet. Just a bunch of trades for the distance badge. Got silver. Now it’s 1mil km for gold.


    Articuno day was great success. Planned it out well with a group of friends. We filled 3 cars and got in 32 Articuno Raids. Right at 11am on our first one I got a 91% Shiny. These were the keepers from today:

    Caught 19/21 Articuno on mine & 6/6 on my wifes. I got 3 shinies, she got 1. Highest IV was a 93 with perf attack for non-shiny and 89 with perfect attack for shiny. Got 930K XP and finally got to level 40 (after my 2nd raid today). Said 102F on my dashboard as I drove home.

    1st time taking part in a serious instinct only raid caravan, and did so after coordinated efforts to flip gyms in our area. So tired, but gotta recover for tomorrows 3 hour grind.

    Well done sir! Go Instinct. We were almost all Instinct today too. Let 2 Mystic homies join otherwise it’d have been 13 Instinct accounts.

    Glad, as always, to oblige my friends and neighbors.
    Not yet.


    Got some work done today. 30 raids in midtown Manhattan (and could have gotten more in if I hadn't had to turn back towards the bus station to go home) resulted in 24 catches and 4 shinies (one 98% with 15 Attack and one 93% with 14 Attack). Also was lucky to have them weather boosted (windy) for the whole 3 hours. Was running lucky eggs pretty much the whole time so knocked out a little over 1.2MM XP.

    173 turtles caught today, even after stopping many times to open gifts from far away, sending out gifts, loading incubators, and trying to select only catch 5 turtles missions. Finally hatched a Alolan Vulpix! All together, I got 10 shinies (2 with glasses), 21 total with glasses (1 of which was perfect!). Wife had 9 shinies.

    Hatched loads of eggs from far away, and so did my wife. We’ll probably trade each other tons to rack up distance, trades, & friendship without having to leave the house! Must’ve sent out like 50 gifts today.

    Good stuff. I had planned on hitting NYC again today for Community Day, but between yesterday's Articuno madness and already being out in the sun for a good long run this morning, I just didn't have it in me. Walked to the little gym and stop spot across the street that has a good number of spawns just after the start this afternoon and caught two shinies, which was nice. That stop was also giving out shiny sunglasses Squirtles, but I had already gotten a research task from there today. Managed to get a couple later on though courtesy of people calling out stops in the local Discord. Ended up with three regular shinies, two sunglasses shinies, and probably another 3-4 regular sunglasses Squirtles, which I'll take given that I didn't play that much during the event. Mildly annoyed that I forgot to evolve the good Squirtles I have (top IV tier + 15 Attack) to get the exclusive move, but not too much considering it still doesn't make Blastoise meta relevant.
