Be glad, I had a bad run with Zapdos that way. And now with Suicune, I am 1 out of 14 again with majority being curved excellent throws, long stopped using golden razzies, because it did jack shit for catching for me.
Basically use the raids to farm xp with lucky eggs and for golden razberries + tms to use.
Spent a week in Bucharest where it was really easy to keep Pokémon for a full day in the gym, that was nice. Gained me 250 coins easily. Spent 200 of them on some extra Pokémon space. The amount of new Pokéstops also helped me get to level 35, despite not playing a lot as I was there with coworkers.
Was a bit surprised the event already started today, missed all the news, but it was easy to get the 5 newcomers in an hour. Just missing the Hatchu. And of course, now to focus on gaining Candy.
Event has been pretty good so far. Did my first Entei raid today and managed to finally get a perfect one! Really glad about that. Then went to see the Mewtwo raid that was taking place nearby, there were probably about 100 people there, some of us were there just for the show as we had not gotten passes, it was a nice experience lol and it was fun to see some familiar faces again.
Hopefully I'll be able to snag a couple of shinies before the event begins. Double candy + Pinap is an amazing combo.
ONly took me 5 minutes to obtain all the new Pokemon, right outside my house. Caught both the male and female witchatus too. Transferred like 80 larvitars, 15 Chanseys and 120 machops from the Safari event for tons of candy as well.
Went to the city to grind grind grind as well, I am well on my way to 39 with just 650k to go and with like 7 evolve sessions worth of pidgeys I probably
be 39 by the end of the weekend.
1. Let us skip the evolution animation. It is boring and there is only so many Pidgeys I need to see evolve.
2. Shorter waiting time for raids, depending on the Pokemon in the Arena. Waiting 2 minutes to defeat a fucking Magikarp, in particular when you have a reliable roster of electric Pokemon on a higher level, is fucking annoying.
Grinded my ass off today spent a ton of lucky eggs from the special event boxes I had, used them on catching and evolving on the fly. And to top it off spent almost 3 hours pidgey evolving to go from 2.4m to 3m to make it to level 39.
