Pokemon Go

Just picked up metal coat. From a google looks like it'll evolve an orix.....

Just needs more.......Orix

Edit: good that you now get 5 candy from evolved Pokemon. It makes it worth trying for a pidgeotto

I reckon I hit about 50 a day so not that bad.

Not sure the evolved pokemon are worth 5 candys, they are considerably harder to catch.

Well got myself about ten new ones today, I strongly doubt any of them were that rare but got a good Sudowoodo.

Things I like

New Pokemon
50xp for a first throw
The double candy berry

Things I don't

The lack of old Pokemon, I'm glad I got them all but one (never seen in the wild anyway) but takes away a lot of the XP farming
The berry for stopping them moving, can't see me keeping a big supply, doesn't seem much of an issue

I've caught/evolved 26 of the new generation 2 Pokemon since I started seeing them on Friday.

Sentret
Furret
Hoothoot
Noctowl
Ledyba
Spinarak
Crobat (evolved Golbat)
Chinchou
Natu
Xatu
Bellossom (evolved Gloom)
Marill
Azumarill
Hoppip
Aipom
Wooper
Espeon (evolved Eevee)
Umbreon (evolved Eevee)
Murkrow
Snubbull
Swinhub
Piloswine
Remoraid
Mantine
Skarmory
Porygon 2 (evolved Porygon)

I was able to evolve Porygon to Porygon 2 and Gloom to Bellossom as I hit my 7 day streak on Pokestops today and it chucked out Upgrade and Sunstone.

Need some special candy to evolve Onyx to Steelix and Slowpoke to Slowking. Up until today I only caught/hatched 3 Onyx since July, but today I went to a local park and it was an Onyx nest and caught 20+ Onyx's today.

I'm just waiting to do a mass evolve and should have a similar number, hard to know what is uncommon as yet. I'm walking a Chansey at the moment which will take a while.

Shame you can only do one berry per throw, but the pineapple for 2 extra candy is OK (although I thought it was double) but if I need the pokemon would rather use the raspberry.

Caught a couple of new ones as well today. A Shuckle just seems to be a really poor Pokemon

Apparently you get one of the evolution items from the 7th day streak pokestop spin. I got the king's rock.

There's an Orix nest in Queens Square London.

Bagged 24 of the new beasts since Friday, Xatu my current fave.

I could have about 5 more if I had the special candies! I can see these annoying me.

They seem to have messed about with them when they changed what was in each egg, I always end up with 5k eggs in my screen but that's because they are my lowest priority.

I'm currently getting a 50:50 mix of 5km and 2km eggs.
My 7th day spin today gave me a stone crown Kings Rock and a Sun Stone, so I can get alternate evolutions to my Slowbro and Gloom.
My other half got the "Upgrade" item that she's going to evolve Porygon to Porygon 2.

I'm due my 7th day spin tomorrow! Looking forward to getting something as not any drops from regular stops.

What's with Murcrow? A git to catch and a generally rubbish pokemon

The Murcrow feels like a Zubat, except it doesn't evolve. I've stop catching them as they can be a pain to catch (even with the L-shaped throw).

Catching better Pokemon, the Murcrow is wholly useless, I thought it evolved and caught 50 candies worth of them, they were a hard catch.

Got enough for a mass evolve, should get another 6 or so.

I think in Pokemon lore there is an evolution for it, but not in this game (yet).

Gen 2 seems to be full of totally useless Pokémon. More so than gen 1
