    Yup. I bid my time for pretty much all of last spring/summer/fall, but when double XP came around I was ready. Knocked out something like 5.5MM XP in just over a week to make the final push from high L38 to L40.

    No grinding required. A casual hour every day of catching, trying to do a raid every day, special events like community day, friend bonuses etc all add up fairly quickly. Only took 2 months for me to cross level 39 that way.

    Did alright on Zapdos day. Caught 23/24 & 2 were shiny. Got a 98% Alolan Raichu. Still trying to find a damn Marowak raid. Got a perfect Makuhita & Ponyta on the weekend, bringing my total count now to 24. Comic Con Unown event was awesome, getting 52 of those fairly easily.

    Already have enough XP to be back at level 30 again only a few weeks after hitting level 40. Maybe I should start moar accounts?!?!

    Speaking of XP. Check this fucking guy out. He’s the leader of the Mystic team in this area and helps run the Slack group and raid trains in the area. He hit 100mil XP just over a month ago. Fucking unbelievable. #nolife #$$$$

    Lol, sounds like bullshit. Not sure if it’s even possible to get that much XP per day. Must be doing all the raids all day long. Here’s his twitter post:

    It’s gotta be his life all day long. 50 coins per lucky egg, 100 coins per raid pass. Doing an average of 680K per day over 2 years. Raids only being available for past year. How much money did he spend? How can this be possible? How do you coordinate with people to grind like that unless he’s a one stop multiple account shop?

    Damn, much as I love my PoGo, can't argue with a grand for an account.

    I can't believe someone would pay $1,000 for a PoGo account. The point of a game is to play it.

    I’ve seen people pay more. Which I why I sold mine lol. Plus I’m kinda over it. The buyer is in Switzerland and clearly has an over abundance of disposable income lol. The money was in my account in seconds.

    TheFarmBoy3 Sold on eBay.
