The shinies are in the game master, but that doesnt mean theyll actually pop up during the event. Shiny legendaries are in as well, after all. So that remains to be seen. Mimikyu hat is a sure thing though.I'm reading rumors about shiny ghost Pokémon from the 3rd gen being available during the event, as well as a Mimikyu hat. Is it true?
Is that actually a thing? Because I've never heard that one.
Yeah it's not a thing. The legendary badge does not have anything to do with capture rates. It just keeps track of your legendary raids.
or could be like me and just say fuck it and walk past them every time
i used to knock them out so they could get their coins but then they would take it back a couple minutes later giving me nothing so fuck you you get to stay in no coin jail
I'd rather earn points for the gold gym badge at this point. Coins are rather pointless now.This would be fine and dandy except that now all of the legit players have their Pokémon stuck in the gym with no way of getting them back. My Blissey has been stuck in a gym for 1day 18hours and counting. Which is a new record since the gym is in a busy Main Street. Are these spoofers really that lazy they cant afford to walk the distance or have their account gone kaput?
Jesus Christ, the rest of Gen 3 won't be out until fucking December?
Hell, they make it sound like it could be a staggered launch too, and that it could slip past December. Fucking why Niantic? Like 5 new Pokémon aren't enough to hold this game over 2 more months.
Yeah, I saw that. Honestly Ho-Oh could even be sooner than that. Mewtwo got nerfed less than a day before the Japan event.The datamine shows they've nerfed Ho-Oh, so probably November will have the last Legendary dog and somewhere around December Ho-Oh.Mewtwo inbetween sporadically hopefully maybe
Im hoping theyre just covering their asses for the typical small handful of delayed Pokémon a la Ditto, Smeargle, Delibird, and the Legendaries, and not hinting at some lengthy multi-month rollout for the bulk of the Dex. Because my god man.haha they even say they will release gradually over time not even all of them all at once christ on this throne what are you doing niantic knock off games with more content are starting to pop up get on it before other games eat your lunch
I meanThere will probably be a Thanksgiving event too and if I were to guess, Ho-Oh will keep most people occupied until Gen 3 arrives.
Lugia wasn't EX exclusive so I would think Ho-Oh won't be either.Would it? lol How does Ho-Oh cover a month and half? The second wave of beasts already died less than a week in, and if Ho-Oh is another massive clusterfuck of EX nonsense...

Really though, staggering gen 3 pisses me off the most. Either release everything or don't. Now it's just catch a few Pokemon and a Pikachu with a stupid hat, repeat cycle.
Has there been recent spoofers banning?
Because all of a sudden my suburb ends up with decaying Yellow gym that no one took down, presumably because all of those Blue and Red players were banned.

Either way, give me back my Blissey, God dang it! Why cant we call our Pokémon back or have them expire after 8hours 20min?
We all know Niantic is horrible with communication. Remember when they had an event and said eggs would give extra candy, but ended up being like +2... lol
willing to bet their data shows people drop off when they fill their pokedex and people come back every time there are new pokemon added so now they are going to stagger gen 3 releases for 7-12 months in groups of like 5-10 pokemon at a time
how about pump out all the gens and shinies and then you can keep players by constantly adding good features and content
The only "content" people seem to care about over the long term are new Pokemon. Legendary raids are short term gain and exciting for a week. Releasing them piece meal 5-10 at a time actually seems smart.
What is a softban? Like they take away features for a while without letting you know?
only commons will spawn and will have super high flee rate
Soft ban is where for about a week or so, you will stop seeing rarer spawns, such as Dratinis.
Really, NEVER EVER EVER use a device/website that requires your login. Really really bad idea. It's bannable.
Use something like CalcyIV or PokeGenie on your phone instead, since those are safe. (they just take a screenshot and give you stats based upon that)
It also says Ex-Raids in German. WeirdI see. Gonna look them up on iOS and see what works best.
BTW they made a mistake in the translation for the Legendary Raids medal in Spanish. I play in English, but most people here play with their phones in Spanish, and the medals reads "EX Raids", rather than "Legendary Raids".
The datamine shows they've nerfed Ho-Oh, so probably November will have the last Legendary dog and somewhere around December Ho-Oh.Mewtwo inbetween sporadically hopefully maybe
Matches last year event so far. I imagine the next dbl XP event will be around Thanksgiving, like last year. Though, last year was dbl stardust as well. I kinda don't imagine they will do both at same time again.
Can we even get Mew legally yet? He's technically a Gen 1 pokemon that Niantic hasn't released yet...that I know of
Mewtwo has already been a clusterfuck, and he's not even a Mythical Pokémon.
I wouldn't worry about that at all. He hasn't been properly released yet. The EX raids are still in their 'testing' phase.
The fact that it's been in testing for a month and a half is already enough of a clusterfuck, lol. That said, the entire idea of the EX raid system is flawed and bound to fuck people over. There's no such thing as a good implementation of the core concept, so I don't have much faith further "testing" will make it better.
