    And yet I have a well paid job that I am very good at and am starting my masters while working full time. I also have a boyfriend that Iíve lived with for four years. I donít believe that occasionally throwing digital poke balls at digital Pokťmon for free is affecting my reproductive fitness. My reproductive fitness may be zero, but thatís solely because I choose not to have children.

    have you gotten Kangaskhan or Farfetch'd? i hatched out a Farfetch'd but still haven't got Kangaskhan.
    yeah i've used the coins to max out my storage and upgrade my backpack and lotsa raid passes. once i put my Slaking at a gym in a part of town i don't frequent often and someone kept feeding it berries so it was gone for like 3weeks lol. i thought i would never see it again.

    anyways i had like a dozen Farfetch'ed - all wild caught recently - just late Nov 2017. i didn't realize it was a continent specific Pokemon. i only have like 4 now after trading in most.

    i still have like 13 Kangaskhan. i caught them all in Anaheim, CA last summer. i was there on vacay and there happened to be a World Pokemon Championship Tournament at the convention center. lol whatta coinicidence! anyways they released the Australia-exclusive Kangaskhan locally over there just for the weekend. i' give u one if he game ever allows trading/selling/gifting. i really want a Mr. Mime, but probably not traveling to Europe anytime soon to catch one. anyways here's some pix of my Kangaskhan i've seen and caught.

    I don't think it's a good enough game that I would pay for it personally (maybe ~$1-2?), but pokemon were a big deal when I was a kid and free nostalgia with no commitment is nice. It's also not too bad about the microtransactions either and generally doesn't try to annoy you into opening your wallet.

    that's the beauty with most Nintendo games (this isn't exactly Nintendo but you get what i'm saying); they generally give you the currency needed in game just by simply playing often enough.

    i haven't spent a dime of real money and i can still upgrade stuff and buy the things i want fairly regularly, because i battle the gyms.

    the nostalgia is mainly what keeps me around. tho i still play the pokemon handheld games, it's nice to open the app and play some quick pokemon on my lunch break at work.

    ima try my first raid this weekend, if i can find a low-level one

    I started playing when it first came out. I played for a few months and then quit till this February. Downloaded the game again, and got pretty big into Raiding.

    so sorry PoGo playas! i forgot to bamp this thread and remind everyone that Saturday was a Community Day w/ an abundance of Charmanders to catch. and if u evolve it fully during the 3 hour hunt, it gets a special edition move - Blast Burn! i hope peeps go out there anyway.

    here's me evolving a Shiny i caught. i love the fully evolved shiny, black Charizard!



    lol i lost GPS signal and thought the game might crash and i might lose my Shiny!

    Ended up with 8 shinies. It was a good community day! Also found a 96%(non) shiny that I was happy about. I ended up evolving a 93, 96, and a low IV shiny for the special move. Saved the rest of my candy to power them up in the future. Been working on solo/duo raid teams so my dust has been non existent for a while.

    wow! i only got 2 Shinies! i dunno, i kinda felt like there were less Charmanders and Shinies this community day. at least in the park we were in. i usually catch 4 or 5. just asking random peeps, the most Shinies found was only like 4.

    the two Shinies i caught don't have good IV's but hey, don't they look great?! i got a 98% Charmander tho. i only knew that b/c a guy in the group ahead of us shouted very loudly several times to everyone - "Hey there's a 98% Charmander at this stop!!":


    also i got my first Ho-Oh in a legendary raid. i really want a Shiny Ho-Oh w/ rainbow wings. we beat a Latias in another raid, but i failed to catch it. i already have 1 tho.

    awww mah bad! forgot to bamp. i only missed 1 community day i think - the Pikachu one in January b/c i was sick. i still got lucky and caught a 0.1 Shiny Pikachu around the house lol.

    FYI Alola forms/morphs are coming soon! i can't wait to catch/evolve a tall goofy Exeggutor.

    there's a way to manually calculate it. it's based on a scale of 0-15 for attack, defense and stamina. so u give your Pokemon a max of 15 points for each of those things during it's appraisal, add it up and divide by 45. or just use an app or online calculator like this: https://pokemon.gameinfo.io/en/tools/iv-calculator

    but personally i don't use IV's to judge my monstars - i just use the basic appraisal of Amazing, Strong, Decent and Not Great (Team Valor's assessment). i keep Amazing and Strong and lesser ones if they are kool, unique, Shinies or i caught them in a city i visited while traveling.
