Can someone explain to me how to go pokemon?

 

you take your phone, throw it into a lake, and then capture the wild gyarados which spawns

New rankings after the update: Dragonite > Arcanine > Charizard > Kabutops > Exeggcutor > Nidoking > Golduck > Starmie > Venosaur > Blastoise > Vaporeon > Flareon > Cloyster > Wigglytuff > Golem

 

RIP Golem, it was a nice run

 

Chansey is now the worst fully evolved pokemon (literally worse than every pokemon except Magikarp). Onix is still really bad, you'd be better off using a rattata. 

 

Edit: for defending gyms: Lapras > Poliwrath > Dragonite > Snorlax > Exeggcutor > Slowbro > Venosaur > Muk > Vaporeon > Rhydon > Vileplume > Nidoqueen > Arcanine > Victreebell > Charizard

New dps charts came out but I don't know the difference between "raw" and "true" dps

Link to the chart? I'm guessing true DPS takes STAB into account

 

I evolved a starmie today since they're the second best water Pokemon now, and it ended up with a crap moveset. My 800 something one has the best moveset though so I gotta try it out against some high level flareons tomorrow

i realized that i don't even really care about combat stats and IVs and all that stuff much at all

 

like, generally if you're level 20+ you can take control of a gym by yourself anyway. it's not worth the extra effort to me worrying about types and movesets and getting a 10% combat difference at best by evolving the right pokemon, etc

 

i just wanna catch em all.

 

and on that note, i have 101 in the pokedex now

Takes critical hits into account

That's the sheet I've been using. It's nice cuz it does a better job taking energy generation into account. Kabutops w/ fury cutter wasn't ranked real high on other sheets cuz they didn't take into account that fury cutter generates a ton of energy, despite its low dps.

 

Energy generation was nerfed though, so the list from earlier is outdated. The thing that stands out most is that Victreebell is the 2nd best grass type now lol

 

Edit: I also wish it wasn't so hard to evolve things like bellsprouts, oddishes, and nidos. Like, they're fairly common, but getting 125 candies takes way too long. At this rate, I might be able to get a vileplume by the time I hit level 30.

Got level 5, thought I'd check out a gym. Top pokemon is level 1300, noped out of there. My level 202 Raticate has no chance.

Just keep leveling up. It doesn't take long before you start hitting the soft cap and can be competitive against people who've been playing hardcore since day 1

I wish I lived in an area where gyms were only at 1300. 2000+ CP Pokemon are annoying to deal with.

Check and see if your city has a Pogo subreddit. I'm fortunate to have one of those and there's a sticky where everyone has listed nests of uncommon Pokemon in various parks. Then I just go for a run around those parks to find those Pokemon

Damn looks like every pogo sub I followed on reddit has devolved into an anti-niantic circlejerk. Time to unsub from all of them :(

The main sub is so cancerous though. Like, you can't cheat at a game anymore, so you're gonna spend all day posting shitty memes and harassing the developers? Really?

Niantic certainly did a good job of ruining a core part of the game by killing the tracker AND then killing emergent gameplay that provided a viable alternative.

 

But my god that sub has taken it to toxic extremes - yes it blows and yes it impacts how you can play the game but it certainly isn't a world ending death warrant at this stage.

No footsteps is the same as constant 3 footsteps, this just make it less confusing for those who aren't keeping up with everything or new players while they fix it.

 

Also, is it alright to make this thread the general Pokemon thread? I have to talk about the news that was revealed today. Exeggcutor, Vulpix/Ninetales, and Sanshrew/Sandslash got new forms.

Yeah people are blowing this way out of proportion and are being really entitled.... like, nobody is forcing you to keep playing, calm down. Niantic's actions have definitely been very puzzling to say the least tho.

It reminds me of the official RS forums where there was a complaints subforum and a praises subforum. The complaints forum always had like 10x the posts as the other one.

 

Gratitude isn't something that comes easily to people. It's much easier to complain and blame. So reddit's always got a heavy outrage-bias when it comes to the circlejerks.
