    Yep, that change and a new special research just dropped (quest chains were such a great addition to this game)

    Also a Mega Kangaskahn event May 1 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., which gives you five raid passes and boosted shiny chances.

    First impression based on play since last week, I find the new mega system to be a huge improvement for the game.

    Bah, I relented and bought the Go Fest ticket thing this weekend. $15 for like 3 days of events and cool pokemon didn't seem like that bad of a deal. I honestly couldn't give a shit about Shaymin but I really enjoy the community days and stuff so I just think the event itself will be fun.

    I am curious though, the graphic for it shows Tropius but the writeup doesn't mention him anywhere. I really hope he's a reward for doing something in the event and not like false advertising. (Tropius is one of my favorites, he's just so goofy I love him)

    Give Niantic a little credit. :P Yes, Tropius will be available as long as you have a ticket and use an incense during the rainforest hours. (And before you assume, yes, the event will almost certainly give you some incense pretty quickly. Past Go Fests did.)

    https://pokemongolive.com/en/post/gofest2022-tickets-shaymin-fulldetails/

    Edit: Be warned that they changed incense so that you literally have to be walking around for it to work. But the incense-exclusive Pokemon should be pretty plentiful.

    Is he from incense? I went over that whole page and Tropius isn't mentioned anywhere. Unless I'm just totally blind.

    Edit: Yes, I am blind confirmed, there he is. Bah, he doesn't stand out at all next to all those Unown :P

    @MNC Dover Any chance your wife's team has influence over this change? If so, any chance it will be something that can be toggled on or off?

    She said her team doesn't work with that feature, but she did bring it up to those who did. Supposedly it's supposed to only be for new and returning users and will go away automatically after a while. Don't quote her on this though.

    Hey, people that have been playing for a long time - did they add swarms or something at some point? Several times now I've noticed that all the spawns just randomly seem to change to TONS of one specific Pokemon, basically looking like a mini community day. Like, two days ago I suddenly got an explosion of Wingulls. I've seen tons and tons of Exeggcute once too and some other stuff. I don't ever remember this being a thing when I used to play so is this something they added?

    There are spotlight hours of nothing but one type of pokemon, usually with a bonus like double stardust or xp.

    Also one of the regular bonuses that pop up once a month is double transfer candy, which is useful when you're grinding legendaries/rare ones.

    I finally found a shiny magikarp! But it’s stats suck. :cry: Then I found another! But it’s stats also suck! :scream:
    Any chance of a “fuse two pokes into one super poke” machine in game anytime soon? :cookie:

    I mean, the main games allow for you to EV train and stuff. I wish Go had something like that - like being able to feed a pokemon vitamins to boost one of their stats.

    (side note, if we are wishing features into existence, I really wish there was more avatar customization options... like, gimme different hair styles. That seems like an easy enough one :3 Honestly a feature I've wanted for so long. Was just reminded of it last night while looking through all the new clothing options since last time I played)

    Heck, just some options for the parts they included but haven’t added to since the game was released, like necklaces.

    Oh yeah, that would be amazing. There's like 3 choices there. Belts too I think. I was kind of surprised to see there wasn't anything new when I looked. (also sad that hats and earrings occupy the same slot T_T)

    Noooo

    How are we going to know if we've caught a Pokemon prior to the "click" now?
    Caught poke notifications are meant to hold up the endless stream of all the great throw notifications and such.

    Best bet is to find someone to mirror trade. That rerolls IVs.

    But otoh IVs are usually overrated anyway.

    Yeah, I know, I’m just griping. Been after a golden Karp for … how long has this game been out again? Only to find two(!) almost in a row and they’re both kinda terrible.

    Just a quick heads-up; the wife and I will be traveling to another Community Day, this time in St. Louis. The address is:

    Tower Grove Park
    4257 Northeast Dr,
    St. Louis, MO
    63110

    First time for both of us in St. Louis, so this should be fun. If anyone here lives in the area, stop by and say hi! The event runs from 11am-2pm (local time) and there should be some swag to give away alongside the Geodude. My name is Ben and I'll be wearing a black Niantic hat. Hope to see someone there.

    The new mega system has continue to be a huge win for me. I spent basically the entire water festival hunting down the Gyarados and Blastoise mega energy quests all to fuel my mega evolution store of energy, probably did dozens of them over the course of the last week.

  • GrobianGrobian What's on sale? Pliers!Registered User regular
    New mega system is great.

    Cost increase for remote passes and also no more free remote passes is bad. I can get that they want to get people back to in-person raids. I can understand doing it now, because everyone else also acts like the pandemic is over. But I just don't get how Niantic is always so bad at community management. Like, just give bonuses for in-person raids instead of taking something away from players. It's so easy to not have a riot on their hands but they fail every time.
