    Had a hell of a day. Got my son an iPad a few weeks ago so we didn’t have to share a device this time. Went to our usual shopping center and realized we needed more pikestops because my son got a shiny with glasses right off the bat.

    I ended up with 23 shinies, 11 with glasses and my best shiny was a 97% with glasses. My son got 17 shinies with 8 in glasses. Used the quick catch glitch to rapidly catch this time, which I use all the time now. It’s a life changer so you don’t have to wait for all the animation. I caught between 350-400 turtles and got upwards of 1500 candies. Even totally slowed down the last hour. I highly recommend that technique for your guys’ grinding and community days.

    I evolved a whole police force:

    Most with max attack and all with Hydro Cannon.

    Damn! Gotta hit you up for some shiny turtles once we are better friends MrVonzipper! Couldn’t really play due to family commitments and only got one non sunglasses shiny.

    No problem. I transferred most of them but Me and my son both have extras. I think I added you as a friend on his account too.

    I have never grinded a shiny or legendady. Also starting to hoard excess of rares, regionals, and babies (like Tyrogues, Tangelas, Chimecho, etc). Hint, hint. (I want all the regionals!!!!)

    I can't see your image and the last image I posted from imgur also gave me the dreaded red x.

    Also, got my first Ex Raid Pass, for a raid I almost certainly can't make.

    I’ve skipped like the past 7 EX raid passes lol. 12 Mewtwos is enough. Don’t need 50. Might go to the next one since it’s actually at lunch time. Yeah, yeah I know “but I want that perfect tho.”

    Been out of town since Thursday on vacation. So a buddy played for me today cuz I had to at least get one shiny Zapdos and hopefully a Hundo, because Zapdos is my team bird and I had done at least 60 raids trying to get a Hundo. Apparently my account was on fire because he got me 10 shinies and a Hundo!

    Damn, that's a hell of a haul. As tempting as it was to bail on the homebrew club summer picnic, I ended up skipping Zapdos Day all together.

    I asked my buddy how it was going half way through the event and after 23 Raids I had 3 shinies and a Hundo. Then at the end of the event he said I had 10 shinies and I couldn’t believe it. They got in 45 Raids.

    One of my frequent raiding buddies got shut out of shiny Articunos but ended up with six shiny Zapdos, so we're going to trade as soon as we hit ultra friends, which should be in a couple days.

    I leveled up to 39 on my last raid during Articuno day (July 7).

    Doing some quick maths (based on my update posts in this thread):

    Between Dec. 1 2017 and April 5, 2018
    125 days
    1.28M to 6.56M XP total
    5.28M gained
    41,250 XP/day

    Between April 5, 2018 and July 7, 2018
    93 days
    6.56M to 15.0M XP total
    8.44M gained
    90,752 XP/day

    At half of my growth rate April 5 to July 7 I should hit 40 in ~100 days. Although I have found my self slowing down significantly over the last couple weeks. Level 39 is some serious satisfaction and the final grind may take some time but I think when I hit 40 I'm gonna slow down even further so I'm holding off on reaching it asap.

    Yea. Don’t need to grind every day. Just need to maximize and take advantage of when we have 2x or 3x XP.
