Ooooh it must be an Alolan one, not a shiny, derp
Yeah, alolan. There are only 4 options from the eggs right now so it's pretty easy to get.

Edit - add my wife while you guys are at it, more eggs from the West coast for ya - 8277 0456 6837

Supposed egg rates:

Meowth: 56.5%
Shrew: 24.5%
Grimer: 15.2%
Vulpix: 3.8%

(Sample size 1,634)

Stops people from selling perfects. However it's a great opportunity to boost high level, shit IV Pokemon. I traded two shit Feebas with my wife and we both ended up with significantly better IV.
Wow so they stopped potential abuse of trading high IV pokemon by giving us a tedious way to reroll IVs...

They need better ways to earn stardust and boost IVs with more ways to use pokemon.

I wish they would make it possible to level up more of the "lesser" species of Pokemon. In the original games, if I wanted to grind levels on a Butterfree and use it to take out the Elite Four, I could. Sure, it took a lot more grinding, but it was possible.

I want to rape gyms with a Butterfree and have everyone go "whoa I can't believe that guy grinded Butterfree candy for so long!". Sure, make it harder (of course a Tyranitar is going to be stronger for less work) but at least make it possible!

If they fixed dodges this would pretty much become possible.

You guys know how this thing tracks travel? I walked around 10km today around town with the game up/screen on and it only registered 3km movement.

Something like it updates your position every 2 minutes to calculate distance, so if you're constantly walking over the top of your previous path, you won't get extra distance. Pacing back and forth between 2 pokestops for example will give you very little distance traveled. The game also updates your client every 4 minutes with how much distance you've added to your egg. A recent change during CD saw that 4 minutes become 8 minutes before it registered in game. So, not sure if it's still 8 minutes, or that was just to remove some server load during CD.

Nah I didn't double track on anything, GPS signal isn't 100% accurate due to the 30+ story buildings everywhere maybe that's part of the problem.

Walking in a straight line helps too. If you're taking a lot of turns, the slow update rate is going to end up chewing up your distance a bit via the good old Pythagorean theorem.

Is Magmar considered a good catch? I've got a nest that popped up about 1/4km from my apt and was wondering if that was worth dropping lures on.

No, unless you want to save candy for Magmortar.

Almost every pokemon is a bad catch in this game.

His evolution is going to have a really high max CP so it could be useful to browse the nest for a decent one.

Almost every Pokemon in this game is viable in some way. I just saw a Mewtwo raid done with nothing but Raticates ffs.

If your community day isn't over yet, or hasn't started yet.

I can confirm this is legit. Looks like the stops roll over their quests at intervals though, no idea what that intervals is. Ended the event with 8 shinies, 4 of which have sunglasses.

Finally got my first EX raid pass, Safari Zone Yokosuka is coming up (Assuming I win a slot), 4 different sponsors for pokemon go Special Weekend which will net 8 different Unown, plus community day and Articuno day were both delayed in Japan.

It's going to be a long, Pokemon filled summer.
